If you have run your competition ammo in your Walther Q5 and/or Q5 SF through a chrono, please list your model gun (Q5 or Q5 SF), bullet weight (115, 124, 147, etc.), average power factor, encountering any issues (none, Failure to Extract, Failure to Eject), and if you are using a factory or different recoil spring (list new weight spring weight). I hope to publish my complete results next week (I need to chrono my competition ammo). I am not asking for your load data but just the bullet weight you are using and the average power factor you determined after running the ammo through a chrono. My data Model Gun: Q5 SF Bullet Weight: 147 Power Factor: TBD Encountering Issues: None Recoil Spring: Factory As per a response I received, depending on the bullet weight you are using you may need to load to an average power factor. I'm also assuming at this time that the factory recoil system is set up to handle NATO ammunition. With your help in providing the information requested above, I think we can help isolate it down. Again, assuming at this time, I believe changing the extractor spring to Keith's new version and a lighter recoil spring (depending on your power factor) will help prevent the issues some are having with Failure to Eject and/or Failure to Extract. I also believe the Walther Q5 and Q5 SF come with really fast barrels. So if you haven't run your ammo through a chrono, I think you will be surprised at the results when you do. If I can and can figure out how to do it, I plan to insert a spreadsheet here to gather all the data received. Thank you!!! Walther Q5 and_or Q5 SF Data Request.xlsx
Just left a local gun range and was able to handle the new Walther Steel Frame Q5. After reading all the hype about this gun, I was ready to be disappointed with it. To my surprise, it looks and feels like one of the nicest factory pistols I’ve ever seen. It’s competitive right out of the box, no need to change sights, triggers or add grip tape, it’s great as is. Similar in weight to a CZ Shadow 2, the trigger is so much better that there is no comparison between the 2 pistols. It seems to be a natural pointer, and to be honest, if I didn’t have so much invested in my 2 Glock 34 Carry Optics pistols, I’d buy one in a heartbeat!
Does anyone make a replacement rear sight for the Walther Q5 match. The OEM sight leaves much to be desired for as far as sight picture and notch depth goes. I'd really like a Dawson rear for it however for some god forsaken reason the Q5 match does not use a PPQ dovetail cut. Taken from the owners manual "The dovetail cut for the rear sight is a 12mm x 2mm x 70° LPA cut. The height of the front sight is 0.21” (5.3 mm)." is this dovetail cut similar to any other common rear sight that I can possibly modify?
