Overview

To say that Walther has a reputation for quality would be an astounding understatement. With a tradition that spans back to classics like the PPK as well as the P.38 up to modern masterpieces like the P99, Walther is renowned for making great guns. New for this year are two great options: the $399 Creed (click this link for our full review) pistol and the competition-ready Q5 Match (click this link for the full review).

The Creed pistol delivers Walther quality at an MSRP of $399. Image courtesy of Walther.

Impression

Both of the pistols felt great in the hand. I think the Creed will do really well with people on a budget looking to get as high a quality pistol they can for as low a price as possible. To get a Walther for this price is unheard of. The Q5 Match looks to have a lot of potential as a competition gun that can mount optics, and for what it gives you the price is really quite good.

Price & Availability

The Creed is priced at an MSRP of $399, and the Q5 Match comes in at a retail price of $849. Both are really good deals for what you get. Both pistols are available now, so check them out and pick up one or both if you so desire. I doubt you will be disappointed.
