The new Walther Q4 Steel Frame EDC handguns are great options for those looking for high quality and performance in their concealed-carry 9mm pistol.

Walther Q4 Steel Frame Carry Pistols – New for 2020


Walther continues their tradition with a handgun designed specifically for those who only buy quality and nothing less. The new Walther Q4 Steel Frame pistol series is the ultimate representation of high-class performance in a concealed carry package.

Key features include:  

Weight Distribution

When increasing performance on pistols, simply adding weight to the frame provides little difference. The Q4 Steel Frame is precision machined to properly distribute 40 ounces of weight to drastically reduce felt recoil, improving shooter performance. This revolutionary technique in distributing the overall weight of the pistol creates a superb balance in hand allowing the shooter to take advantage of the triggers short reset capability. 

Ergonomics

Grip geometry and texture must be perfect, then aiming becomes second nature. The ergonomics of the Q4 Steel Frame is a feat in firearms engineering that simply must be felt to be believed. The combination of a reversible over-sized magazine release button, recessed ambidextrous slide release, and flawless balance in hand result in the most natural point-of aim.


The Q4 Steel Frame features Performance Duty Texture, developed by Walther to provide a premium, yet functional grip. This Performance Duty Texture provides an aggressiveness to maintain proper grip performance. But, with its tetrahedron design, it is non-abrasive, providing no irritation to the skin or clothing of the user.


Walther has pushed the boundaries of testing in some of the harshest conditions, whether it's torrential rainfall, extreme heat, and humidity, icy cold temperatures, or thick mud, the Performance Duty Texture of the Q4 Steel Frame delivers peak performance.

Quick Defense Trigger

With the creation of the PPQ came the Quick Defense Trigger from Walther, a trigger second-to-none. Providing the shooter an alternative to the heavy, spongy striker-fired pistols on the market.

The Quick Defense Trigger is a safe two-stage trigger with a crisp-break and short-reset. The first stage allows for consistent prep with a distinct wall that can be easily found under stressful situations. The second stage is the crisp break of the wall, resulting in accurate shots on target.

The reset of the Quick Defense Trigger measures only 1/10”, allowing the shooter to skip the first stage completely and fire the follow up shot by only moving their finger 1/10 of an inch. Resulting in faster, more accurate and consistent shots on target.


The quick-defense trigger is known as the best striker-fired trigger by nearly every critic.

Duty Optimized Beavertail

The Duty Optimized Beavertail provides the shooter increased grip height on the pistol, resulting in reduced felt recoil. Optimized for duty retention holsters, providing clearance for retention hoods most used in Law Enforcement.

This beavertail design also enhances comfortability during concealed carry. The smooth, rounded design allows reduced irritation when carrying appendix IWB. This design also reduces the amount of print while carrying concealed.


Iron Sight or Optics

Adaptable. Efficient. The perfect integration of both professional and tactical dynamics. The Q4 Steel Frame is unparalleled proficiency in a platform designed to meet your individual needs, available in either platform preferred, iron sight or optic ready. The Q4 Steel Frame features steel 3-dot phosphoric night sights, which are non-snag and optimized for conceal carry. The Q4 Steel Frame OR features a black serrated front and black serrated rear adjustable duty sight, while also allowing for the installation of a red dot optic. The Q4 Steel Frame series is uniquely designed to give you the flexibility of iron sights and optics.
