Steel frame aesthetics done right
Walther a couple months ago introduced what they bill as the Q5 Steel Frame Match pistol, which takes their standard Q5 and ditches all the polymer (frame, guide rod, etc) for steel, which is a throwback that I can get behind. Kinda like what CZ did for the 46-ounce Shadow 2 a while back. Sure, it adds a pound to the gun but translates to easy recoil and better accuracy on the 9mm longslide.
Plus it gives you a lot of canvas for engraving, should you be into that sort of thing.
