The Meister Manufaktur program creates an exclusive line of hand-engraved, hand-finished pistols with newly developed coatings and finishes never seen before on a production line. Every Meister Manufaktur limited edition pistol promises respected Walther performance combined with hand-finished quality to exceptional detail.
Highly skilled artisans have worked in concert with Walther engineers to fuse the very best aesthetic embellishments with performance upgrades and state-of-the-art surface treatments.
The Walther passion for pursuing excellence has been enhanced and baked into the DNA of the Meister Manufaktur program. Its ambition is to produce beautiful, soulful, performance leading products without parallel in the pistol market.
The special edition “Black Tie” is deliberately understated, yet its refined looks and added performance, make this unassailable Q5 Steel Frame a modern classic.
The barrel, slide, steel-frame, and even magazine base plate of the “Black Tie” are all Tenifer® nitride treated and polished to give superior hardness and phenomenal protection against corrosion. The parts are then Stinox® coated, which leaves an upscale satin finish with outstanding protection against corrosion and wear.
To enhance functionality, a Dynamik Performance Trigger has been introduced. This is a dynamic match trigger with superior characteristics of reduced take-up, trigger stop, and trigger reset. At its wall, the flat-faced aluminum triggershoe breaks like glass at 5.5lb.
The one-piece wrap-around aluminum grip is machined from a solid block of aerospace-grade aluminum alloy and the magazine base plate from a solid block of pure steel resulting in a homogenous, balanced structure. With 20 lines per inch checkering and satin anodizing, shooters will discover in-the-palm ergonomics that feel like an extension of their hand. The striking “Black Tie” edition is completed with a black serrated target front sight and adjustable match rear sight both fully integrated into the slide.
The Walther Q5 Steel Frame “Black Tie” promises unparalleled performance that can only be found at Walther, a company defined by over a century of engineering passion, precision workmanship, and innovation.
“Our perceptible passion for excellence is paired with the courage to try something groundbreaking with the Black Tie model. With an understated look that leaves no questions about its quality, we have fused performance and high-level aesthetic into a remarkable product,” said Bernhard Knöbel, CEO, Carl Walther GmbH.
