  1. Compete with a poly Q5 in CO Carry a Glock 43. Thinking about picking up a 4” ppq for carry as well.
  2. I picked up one as well for my Q5 and ran it tonight in a practice session with a 15 lb Wolff spring. I was impressed. Make sure and get the longer Jentra tungsten guide rod made for the 17L/24/34/35 as it matches up to the Q5 nicely Realize the ISMI flat springs are too small a diameter and you will need the Wolff springs as they are a larger inside diameter. I have been running a 13lb flat spring with a SS captured guide rod setup but did not like how sloppy the slide movement was while running into shooting positions. I did not have any FTF’s but still did not like it going in and out of battery so easily. The 15 lb Wolff recoil spring in an uncaptured guide rod setup has enough spring tension that it keeps the slide in battery while moving aggressively into and out of shooting positions.
  3. The after market Gen. 3 Glock guide rods also work in the poly Q5. Try Lone Wolf Distribution as they have tungsten guide rods in stock. Likely a little shorter than the M&P but for $40 and currently in stock it is worth a look.
  4. Walther replaced mine as well. I also bought a spare one just in case. Great customer service
  5. Broke the firing pin on my poly Q5 in dry fire. Was not using snap caps and had been dry firing consistently over the last 3 months. Was still surprised. Assuming Walther USA is the best option for finding a replacement.
  6. In the latest USPSA magazine in the steel frame Q5 article there is mention of Walther making available aftermarket disconnector springs that will change pre-travel, reset and pull weight and are compatible with the polymer frame models as well. Be curious to see what they come out with. Part of the fun in this game is tinkering with your gear (and still maintaining reliability). Goal being a 3.5lb trigger (do able in most other polyframes i.e. SIG, Glock with drop in trigger kits) without any downsides to mechanical performance (dead trigger).
  7. The non functioning trigger is a concern. Not sure that it is worth cutting a couple of pounds on the trigger pull and risking a dead trigger on a poor grip. Just curious if you are only running the stock trigger. Assuming you have done some polishing as well.
  8. Looking for some feedback on the Sprinco trigger kit. Specifically the following: *Reliability with hard primers i.e CCI *Takeup *Trigger pull reduction *Any negatives
  9. A good mag brush is also a must have. Arrendondo is my pick
  10. ssguiderods.com Comes with a 17lb guide rod so you will need to change it out.
  11. I use 3.2 grains @ OAL of 1.15. Gives me a 137 pf out of a Shadow. I throated my barrel as well so I could load out longer.
  12. Really depends on your hand size. I have medium size hands and the Q5 fits me well. Guys with large hands it hangs off the bottom of the grip. Q5 is dependable and accurate. Trigger is good to go as is. I did feel the Q5 was over sprung and changed to a steel guide rod with a 13lb flat wire 1911 recoil spring.
  13. I also use the same load in my X5 with excellent accuracy with both coated and jacketed 124/125 grain bullets.
  14. For N320 I use 4.2 grains for 124/125 coated and jacketed @ 1.1 OAL for my CZ shadow. Gives a PF around 138 ish.
  15. When we flew to iron sighted nats for 124 gr Molys it was a little over 3 lbs per hundred. So we flew with 300 rounds and sent the rest of our ammo with our buddies that drove.
