  1. Walther sent me a replacement captured guide rod with lower power spring when I called saying I was having issues with low power factor rounds. The only mod the trigger needs is in the trigger safety spring if you have a very high grip.
  2. I called Walther and they sent me red spring vs the unpainted spring that was in the gun at no cost (would have been $32 if they had charged me). The gun feels normal to rack now, vs. before when it felt unusually difficult to rack compared to my other pistols. I haven't yet shot it to see if it clears up my stove pipes I was having with my 130 PF ammo. I am happy with my Walther customer support so far, although I wish I could just buy an uncaptured guide rod so I could use a spring of my choice.
  3. Thanks for the clarification. I am a PCC shooter buying this gun to try production and carry optics. I hadn't realized this change, not many production shooters around here.
  4. How would the new trigger affect production? If I buy the SF then put in this trigger it will only be production legal after the new gun with this trigger has sold enough to be production eligible? Will it have a separate model number preventing that?
  5. ATF said in 2017 that it isn't illegal to shoulder lacking other intent e.g. permanent attachment, removing strap, etc. Of course they can reverse this whenever they want as they are doing with bumpstocks. “With respect to stabilizing braces, ATF has concluded that attaching the brace to a handgun as a forearm brace does not ‘make’ a short-barreled firearm because … it is not intended to be and cannot comfortably be fired from the shoulder.” The letter continues: “Therefore, an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not re-configured for use as a shoulder stock — even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder.” I agree that uspsa should make it legal to use a brace, it simplifies carrying across state lines. It doesn't give the competitor any advantage vs. a stock. I have an MPX SBR I used in competition, but bought a JP with pinned and welded comp to avoid having to file paperwork when I leave my state.
  6. My Red Hill holster shipped today, order placed 1/20. The more interesting thing is I ordered the holster after I told my dealer to place an order for the gun. I will have my holster Wednesday but no idea when I will get the gun. My dealer claimed it is unobtainium.
  7. Oops, didn't read the notes. Notes not so obvious when viewed from smart phone. Thanks for the clarification. Anyhow, I ordered mine, so doing my part to get to 2000. Also ordered holster from Red hill, 30 day lead time. I would hope by the time I get my holster it it good to go... Josh
  8. It is ready on production list. https://uspsa.org/productionlist Q5 Match SF (Steel Frame) .(41.6 oz.)
  9. Have one on order. If I want to start in production but move to carry optics at some point, which mag capacity do I get? I assume the 17 round mags from the pro for in the base model? Which mag extension for CO? Where is the best place to buy mags for this thing?
  10. I have both MPX and JP. MPX worked as long as I cleaned every match. The system is a major pain to clean. The JP is reliable with much less frequent cleaning and it cleans much easier. I like that the JP has tunable weights and springs, the mpx has alternate springs and adjustable gas valve from in lead we trust, but I found I could get the JP to have less dot movement through tuning. This was a surprise for a blow back gun.
  11. I was wondering the same thing. Made A in pcc my first year in uspsa but it looks to be a serious climb up from here at the very bottom of A class. I would like to gain more practical pistol skills, especially those that would translate to 3 gun pistol, which is pushing me to consider a production switch at some point. Not sure when is the right time to make the jump.
  12. If you goto https://uspsa.org/classifier-lookup/ you can type in a member number (assuming their privacy settings are not set) and see their results. Do that for a while and you can get a bunch of data... I don't have all the data, but I have a bunch of it - I don't have anything after October including the new classifiers since I stopped scraping since I got the data I wanted. My data shows that the average classifier score is 8% better on PCC. That is not weighted for the frequency a classifier is shot. I could do some analysis on that but haven't. Here are some theories based on my gut- -PCC shooters are not the ones picking the classifiers so they are not picking classifiers to shoot that are easier (here is where weighted average would be nice) -PCC is easier to pick up, but when people get good at it they move to open? -Best shooters are in open and they have not shoot in PCC -The nature of the classifier system encourages spray and pray --- if your score is 5% below your class it doesn't count. It could be that open average scores are lower because people are doing more spraying and praying, but they occasionally get lucky which gets them to move up the classifier level.
  13. I am dying to know if they made any changes to the function of the gun (gas system?)... If so, are there any retrofit options for my existing MPX?
  14. I had a request for distribution of shooter classifications. I have data for about 15,000 members (I hear there are about 30,000 members). Not currently too concerned about getting all the data, I think this is enough to draw some conclusions. I am also plotting "percent" and not "high percent" so someone who was a master but is currently shooting A will show up in my data as an A.
  15. Here is a chart of popularity of stages and divisions (green popular, red unpopular) over roughly the last 3 years... I just have a sampling of data but trends should hold...
