  1. When and where is this match held? Thanks in advance.
  2. FYI Space City Challenge is the Texas South Section Championship Match. It is a level 2 and has been held in the Houston area for over 20 years. Henry's Cup is a level 3 and this was the first year for this match. Although both matches have been held at the same range they are mutually exclusive events. Here's hoping the Henry Cup will be back next year. It was a very good and well run match.
  3. The interference occurs at the head of the rod where it presses against the take down lever. Here is the problem: There is a small nipple on the face of the take down lever where it meets the guide rod. The factory rod head has a hole in the center and this nipple fits inside when mated up. Any available 1/4" guide rod head has no hole so that when installed the rod head slides downward pushing the nipple up and not allowing the lever to remain closed. The fix: Drill a 1/8" hole about 1/16" deep in the center of the rod head and all is well. This work
  4. No. The Wilson spring requires a 1/4" OD rod. This combination will work in the Polymer Q5 Match but not the Q5 SF.
  5. What is the Newton rating on the standard Q5 SF recoil spring? I'm thinking 50n.
  6. The .283 OD captured ss guide rod is standard in the SF. An uncaptured guide rod as you describe will not allow the take down lever to fully rotate. This is a difference in the two models.
  7. Do you have this in a Q5 Match or a Q5 SF? I have a similar rod from ZR Tactical. With any flatwire spring it will not allow the take down lever on the SF to fully close.
  8. The OD of the Q5 SF guide rod is .283. The ID of a Wilson flat wire spring is .260 made to fit on a .250 OD rod. So still looking for a combo that will allow installation of a 13/15 lb spring.
  9. Thanks for the info. On another subject. A Blade Tech CZ Shadow holster will fit the Q5 SF. Just remove the tension screws and replace them with longer screws and longer hose spacers. No heating required and feels like it was made for the gun.
  10. Can you please elaborate on your spring and recoil rod combination? On my SF, I have tried the uncaptured ss rod from ZR Tac and a Wilson 5" 13 lb flatwire and the take down lever will not close. This combo is discussed as working in the polymer Q5 . I can confirm it will not work in the Q5 SF. Suggestions anyone?
  11. Good Grief ! Maybe they could add standing on strong side leg only. You know. Just to add a little more challenge.
  12. Stage 3 String 1: What is the definition of offhand in IDPA? Being old school I think it means standing, not kneeling, not prone, unsupported by the barricade, shooting off of the hands. I don't think it necessarily means weak hand as in the video. I'm not really an IDPA rules guy so I could be wrong.
  13. Troy's response is not an official ruling and one is not required pursuant to the question in review. This is a clarification to those that may not understand that on any given stage there is only one backstop. The "180" is defined in 10.5.2 as 90 degrees from the median intercept of "the" backstop. Note that this rule does not include "berm or berms". The rule book does differentiate between backstop and berm. An example is 10.4.1. which states "A shot which travels over a backstop or berm etc." Definitions of each can be found in the rule book. Hop
  14. Nope. Similar but different. For example, the bottom of the hammer that resets the sear/disconnecter is a greater radius than the 10/22 hammer and will not fit.
