Walther just announced its newest line of firearms, and it isn’t for the feint of heart. The Walther Meister Manufaktur blends old-world hand engraving and finishing with new-age coatings and finishes to create a remarkable, high-end line of arms. Make no mistake, these are custom pistols, with prices to match.

The Walther Meister Manufaktur Program

The Meister Manufaktur program creates an exclusive line of hand-engraved, hand-finished pistols. Newly developed coatings and finishes deliver a truly unique production gun. Every Meister Manufaktur limited edition pistol promises performance, along with hand-finished quality and detail.

The Manufaktur launches with four pistols built around the popular Q5 Steel Frame. The Black Diamond, Black Tie, Patriot, and Arabesque models each exhibit several uniquely defining features. Highly skilled artisans worked in concert with Walther engineers. The result fuses aesthetic embellishments with performance upgrades and state-of-the-art surface treatments.

“Walther’s vision was to fuse form and function to create the ultimate experience for its customers. More beauty, more soul – yet totally usable. Why should something truly beautiful only be collected, and why should something built for performance not lead its class in good looks and artistry? Using our in-house engineering and technical skill fused with some of the world’s most celebrated craftsmen meant our imagination was the only limiting factor with the Meister Manufaktur program,” said Bernhard Knöbel, CEO, Carl Walther GmbH.

As for MSRP, the Walther Meister Manufaktur pistols range in price from $2,790 to $4,449. Lastly, for more information, visit
