Apex PPQ trigger on a Q5 SF?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Has anyone actually installed an Apex trigger on a Q5 Steel Frame?  I have read that it works and doesn't work.

I called them, and the person I talked to said he had no idea when and if one was coming.  JD

That's what I was told. No big deal, selling it anyway. Wife switching to open.

Hope Apex could release a trigger for q5sf....And I guess they can just make the trigger shoe and use the factory trigger bar.

I think someone else makes one but don't remember who.

You might be thinking of this one:

If so, I've heard this is only available in Europe.  I've also heard they are designing one for the USA market to include the trigger safety.  If so, hopefully it's true and it will be available quickly.

Im suspicious at this point but I don’t think the SF owner base is that big to drive this to market faster....but I’m hopeful!

 

I do want a trigger safety but would consider this for comp guns only (like the SF).  I imagine there’s some liability for Walther US to provide a trigger with no safety but there are other safeties on the SF.

Would not be legal is uspsa without a safety.

That trigger without the safety is worthless in the us.

We are currently working on bringing the new Q5 SF trigger kit to market. As some may have noticed, the trigger pull weights on the SF are typically heavier than the polymer frames.

This is an obstacle I needed to overcome since this gun in particular was designed for competition. We expect to release the new kit in early September.

Yes! I'm so happy to hear this.

That's awesome news!!!  I know some of us are wanting one right now, but please take your time in the design, testing, and validation to put an absolute wonderful product out that will not only work, be a great competition trigger, last a long long time, but will also drop jaws to the ground.

👍

It will come with the trigger on a modified trigger bar, trigger return spring and a striker block spring.

That is assuming it passes our drop testing protocols.

Update: We are redesigning our Walther SF triggers so that they will be cross compatible with the polymer frames.  During testing of the SF, the number one complaint was that our current PPQ trigger sits too far forward to be comfortable for pretty much all the testers who shot the pistol. I think it is related to the increased girth of the frame/grip on the SF.

 

I know it isn't what people wanted to hear, but there is no use selling a trigger kit that a majority of shooters won't like. I will try and update this thread as the project progresses.

 

We will also need to drop test the pistol from 6 feet onto concrete in 27 different orientations. Anyone know where I can get a used unwanted SF for that purpose?

Randy - I thought on a video Walther approached you to make an aftermarket. Otherwise, You can use my but would definitely like a replacement as it will be unwanted after you test it out   :)
