Not sure if this is mostly a cosmetic makeover of the FP60 but Walther has a new Free Pistol model out.

looks identical to the FP60, just only the shape of the trigger guard and the muzzle compensator, other than that every hole, the rear sight are identical, the barrel seems shorter. Maybe they added some of that KK500 magic?

The grip is aftermarket or Walter teamed up with Rink to supply grips for it's free pistol.

As hundert said, it looks identical to the FP60...

Urlich provides some insight here. You can use auto-translating subtitles if your German is a bit rusty!

I tried the translated subtitles. I'm still trying to figure out what "spaghetti" was all about (~1:30)...
