Our Walther Competition basepads have been a huge hit, so we decided to make a “heavyweight” version out of solid brass!
Since we were going for maximum weight, we did away with the weight-relieving cuts that keep the aluminum PPQ Competition down to one ounce. (The one-ounce rule comes from IDPA and its “Stock Service Pistol” division requirements.)
Not only is brass three times heavier than aluminum by volume, there’s significantly more of it in the same space. The result is a trim but HEAVY four-ounce-plus basepad that’s ideal for shooters in low-cap regimes (California, Canada, New York, Hawaii. . .)
