It's nice to see Walther respond to the all steel race gun trend. Its shame other manufacturers haven't joined in. Colt could build a Para-like double stack version of the SCG, and S&W could make 3rd gens again.

SIG had just announced a version of P320 X5 with a tungsten infused grip. 43.5 oz dry weight, as heavy as SF Q5

Everyone whom I know that shoots USPSA Unlimited either shoots an Infinity or dreams of one. They are a beautiful 2011, but expensive!!

The name of that division is Limited, and it is indeed dominated by high end 2011s. The steel framed Walther and tungsten SIG are intended to compete in the divisions where 2011 aren't allowed.

I have often said, my custom Colts are my absolute favorite pistols, and nearly all I have carried for decades...BUT, I truly believe Colt is like the ATF in one regard. Any time they get an inkling of what is on your wishlist/waitlist, that item goes straight to the bottom of the pile.
