    Walther have launched a conversion kit which can turn any of their standard PPQ line of pistols into a Q5 Match pistol ready for the local 3-gun match.

    Here’s what Walther have to say about the new conversion kit:

    The rapid growth of popularity in the Walther Q5 Match series of pistols has led customers to continually ask for a conversion kit for the standard PPQ series. Walther is proud to announce the release of the Q5 Match conversion kit.

    Showcasing Walther’s modern take on practical shooting, the Q5 Match series delivers extraordinary efficiency and adaptability, which garnered its immediate distinction in the industry. This platform allows you to maximize the accuracy, power, and speed necessary to dominate the competition completely!

    A modern work of art in its own right, the slide is outfitted with features previously found only on custom handguns. It is ported and optic ready, with LPA sights as well as front and rear serrations. Walther’s superior accuracy is quickly realized when shooting thanks to the 5” barrel with polygonal rifling and stepped chamber.

    This conversion kit works with any polymer PPQ 9mm (excluding Sub-Compact) and is ready to install. Includes slide, barrel, recoil assembly, all internal components, LPA rear sight, LPA fiber optic front sight, and a test target showing a 5-shot group at 25 meters.
