The grip actually looks to me like it MIGHT fit my hand somewhat comfortably, or at very least... interesting...ly? The flat part at the bottom or the backstrap is intriguing.
I'm not really digging it though. The bore axis, as the OP noted, looks CRAZY high. I also think they made a mistake with moving the mag release, as well as with ditching the HK style (I'm not sure what else to call it) slide stop lever. I've never really been a Walther fan, but have always appreciated that they do things differently and make high quality items.
This sort of kills that idea for me. I know the Hi-point comment has already been made but GOOD GRIEF! Why did they make the slide/upper so dang tall and blocky?
Come on Walther, go back to the P99AS!
