Sprinco recoil system on Q5SF

Recommended Posts

Looking for some information on spring replacements for the sprinco recoil system for canik/walther. Sprinco doesn't give a weight from the factory all it says is "reduced power". I'm running 130pf ammo for USPSA and I want to buy some 1911 springs as spares/ for testing and wanted to know if anyone has tried it before.

yes. Guide rod https://www.zrtacticalsolutions.com/shop/walther-ppq-uncaptured-stainless-guide-rod/

and 1911 flat spring https://shopwilsoncombat.com/Flat-Wire-Recoil-Spring-5-Full-Size-Chrome-Silicon-15-Lb/productinfo/614G15/

I did this a couple years ago. I have never had a jam or failure to feed since in thousands of rounds with 130PF ammo 124gr.

I'm running the Sprinco system on my Walther Steel Frame.  I tested Sprinco's yellow and white springs.  Sprinco suggested starting with the yellow, since it should be reliable for everyone.  They said the white is reliable for many.  Both were reliable for me.  The white spring felt slightly softer to shoot and has been reliable, so I stayed with it.  I'd recommend buying one of each and testing.  Unfortunately, I don't know the weights, but I know they are made for the Sprinco system.
