Walther’s Bespoke Alligator and Alien

Walther makes some extremely high-end pieces as part of its niche Meister Manufaktur line, and I have just loved them in past years. For instance, take a look at these:

Limited to a single example this year in the Meister Manufaktur series is the “Alien,” which features a hand-engraved Xenomorph motif across the entire frame and slide of a specially selected Q5 Steel Frame 9mm. Walther told me they give a team of engravers and custom works people 18 months to produce something interesting and this one did not disappoint.

The cost is $35,000.

Another of Walther’s one-of-one Q5 Steel Frame creations at SHOT Show this year is the “Alligator.” Featuring finely engraved gator-style plates on every external metal surface along with a flat-faced gold trigger, you would be hard-pressed to find something that has more attention to minute detail than this pistol. Walther said this gun took two years to produce.

Cost, like the Walther Meister Alien, is $35,000. Click to get a better look at those plates.

    Seeing a similarity between engraving and tattoos – often overdone, too much, excessive and such.
