Walther Q5 SF lock up issue

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone else having lock up issues with a lighter recoil spring? When cocked, it comes out of battery really easy. I can shake the gun back and forth and move the slide.

how light is the recoil spring? My plastic q5s/PPQs have similar "issues", so I use 13lb Glock recoil spring now. No issues anymore....

Memphis Mechanic stated that this is normal with most striker fire pistols with stock striker springs couples with lighter recoil springs.

An m&p striker spring fits. Stock m&p is 5#. I believe the stock walther is 6.5-7#. 

 

Test fired it today with WSP and it worked fine. And it took care of the loose slop when cocked.
