  1. I run it stock. (With a Romeo1Pro 6 MOA and comp-tac holster ofc)
  2. A few more pix FYI. Zev is on the left; OEM right. Target is 6".
  3. I got P320 X5 barrel from Zev. It looks good. I don't know its mechanical accuracy. Did 25 yd off hand shooting, the accuracy is about the same, in my hands, as the stock X5 barrel.
  4. I feel isolated, because I find the factory grips perfectly fine for me....
  5. Exactly what I went through --- can't get Q5 SF to run properly and gave up on Walther factory. Now I switched to CZ. I had also debated about Shadow Custom or Target. I ended up getting neither. What I eventually get is: Shadow RDS (91158) and before they ship I asked CZC to do the custom work exactly as in Shadow Custom. In the end it is a Shadow Custom RDS and cheaper than Shadow Target. I can switch between iron sight and red dot whenever I want. To me this is a much better value than Target. (The rear sight is elevation adjustable. So it is as good as the fully adjustable in T
  6. Here is the final episode of my Q5 SF: Walther sent me a video of the technician test firing the pistol. He fired 4 different types of ammo (115 and 124gr), each with one mag 15 rounds, and found no issue. The pistol is deemed good and they will send it back to me. I called the service number and tried to explain my problem -- I wrote a detailed description when I sent it in The lady answering the phone was impatient. -- She kept saying "if he can't find an issue he can't fix it." -- When I said the issue won't occur in 60 rounds, it occurs every 200-ish round. She s
  7. Thank you all for the suggestions. I did order the spring from Keith White. (He is nice to deal with.) However, it's been 2 weeks and I haven't received it. I know USPS is failing me -- somehow my luck with this Q5 SF is simply lacking. Without the new spring to try, I packed it up last night and sent it to Walther today. I will let you know what happens. Hearing the advices, some of which came from pro shooters, gave me mixed feelings. On one hand it's comforting to know it can be fixed by changing parts. On the other hand, it's a little sad to know a $1500 pistol can not run reli
  8. Thanks for the information. Although I have already ordered the stronger extractor spring from Keith, I think I will send the pistol back to Walther and see what they can do about it. This consistent failure really bothers me, especially when it happens to every brand of ammo I have run. At the same time all of my other pistols (including polymer PPQ) have no complaints about any ammo.
  9. Is "frequent cleaning" a well known fact to run Q5 SF smoothly? I want to make sure. To be honest if it is, I am a little turned off. I always keep my pistols clean. But it is because I want to, not I have to.
  10. Hi thanks for all the advices. I will try Keith's extra power spring. However, I couldn't understand how a stock part does not function with most factory ammo. If so shouldn't that part be replaced/fixed by the manufacturer (in this case Walther)?
  11. Hi all I want to ask some opinions/help. I acquired a new Q5 SF in May. I like it so much that after the first day of shooting it I decided to switch from Sig P320 X5 and shoot IDPA/USPSA with it. I put 2,000 rounds in one month to train, and in June the day before my first planned match with it, its striker broke. To me this is very unusual because nothing like this ever happened. I posted here for help too. Got in touch with Walther and they sent me a new striker assembly. So that issue is resolved. The issue I am asking is the malfunction I experience, mostly extraction/double
  12. The standard optic plates for P10 C/F would work perfectly well for S2 OR.
  13. Called Walther. They sent me a form for warranty service. Sent in the broken striker assembly. Got in the mail today from Walther a brand new striker assembly free of charge. It took a while but I can't complain about the service.
  14. I used snap cap a little when I started to learn shooting. I stopped using it after realizing its cost can quickly be much more than a new striker. I think my case is an isolated incident. It is on its way back to Walther. Meanwhile I will get a spare (or two).
  15. Thanks. I went through their website earlier but didn't find it. I will try calling them, and Walther too, on Monday.
