My Walther Q5 Match Classic

Recommended Posts

Picked up a Walther PPQ Q5 Match. Sweet! But I always like the M1 because of the paddle magazine release. Sooo, I bought a PPQ Classic and switched the uppers.

 

Both the original trigger pull of the Q5 and the Classic averaged 4lb-15oz according to my Lyman Digital Gauge. Take-up was about 0.5" and reset to about 0.25". Not satisfied with that, although it is better than any trigger out there other than a 1911, I installed the Apex Flat-Faced Forward Set Trigger. Take-up was reduced to about 0.25" and reset to about 0.15". Trigger pull now averages 4lb-9oz. 

 

One more tweak to be done with a lighter trigger spring and I'll be set. 

 

Oh. And I upgraded the mags to 17 rounds and also installed the Leupold Delta-Point Pro. I likes it.  :good:

I have a 5" M2 and absolutely love the gun.  The trigger in it is unbelievable.  I had never actually measured it so when I saw this post I went out and checked it with my Lyman Digital Gauge.  It clocks in at between 4# 2 oz and 4# 4 oz.  I had once tried someone's 4" M2 that had the Apex in it and it actually felt like a harder pull than mine but it does have a much shorter take up.  Best of luck with yours, they make a great gun.

I plan to polish a few contact spots and install a lighter spring. I ordered the same size (OD, Length, Thickness) in stainless. It is supposed to be a little lighter than the steel. If not, I will get the next size down on the thickness.

And to note that the other difference between the Classic and the M2, is where the middle finger contacts the frame. On the Classic, the trigger guard is not as wide as on the M2.

Just bought the Q5 and can't wait to rescue it from jail when I get my permits 2 purchase. Love the feel of the 5" M2 and the way it shoots. Trying to figure out what optic I want to get for it in for the future after I locate some more funds.

I just got my new spring. Exactly the same size. Easy to install. No disassembly required. Without any polishing, it now breaks at an average of 3lb-7oz. 

 

I have 2 extras if anybody wants one shipped for $7.

      I get emails from Davidson's and other distributors.  This week they are having a special on HK P30L in 40 S&W for $469.  Assume + shipping + dealer markup.

      Also seems like a deal? on M9A3.

      Also, the Walther Creed is $249.  This was actually a really nice gun when I got to play with it at Shot Show.  Surely better than the lower end Smiths, etc.

      Trying to decide between the 3... I’m leaning towards the cz p10c, mainly because i love CZs and i hear good things about their striker fired offering. The others are tried and true.
       
      Anyone have any experience with these firearms? Any input would be appreciated.

      Attention all Walther PPQ M2 5" seeker's... Model# 2796091 is being replaced with the new 5" they are calling the "Standard" Model# 2813734. The only real change is it will no longer have the cool ported slide, so get them quick if it's on your list. The old one has already been taken off the Walther website. 
      See the new standard PPQ M2 here: http://www.waltherarms.com/handguns/ppq/ppq-m2-5inch-standard/

      Passing along some great promotion news from Walther Arms I came across on the Walther forums. Pictures are not mine, just re-posting so not sure what magazine they came from.
      http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/walther-general-discussions/79770-100-walther-rebate-june-1st.html
      $100 rebate applies to the PPQ & PPS product lines (Q5 Match Excluded) purchased from June 1st, 2017 to September 15th, 2017.
      Promo site not yet functional as of 5/28 but here it is: http://www.waltherarms.com/Rebate100

    • I concur with the mod in the sombrero!  Seriously, @AVB-AMG.. I've been lucky enough to attend quite a few events that had high-level speakers (e.g., George W. Bush while he was POTUS, Madeline Albright, Shirley Chisholm, etc.). There's always a certain amount of pomp and circumstance when a high-level speaker is afoot, particularly a sitting POTUS (POTUS swaggers in with a cadre of Secret Service agents - it's kinda badass really)… and that stands separate and apart from their actual political views. As others pointed out, they're big, newsworthy events - especially in our tiny garden state. How's this? If the next Democratic president holds a rally in NJ, feel free to put it in General Discussion!   
    • Yup.  Here it comes.   Thats quite ballsy to do it in Oklahoma.    Itll have no traction there.  I believe.   Its too far from the north east.  Its probably Just a test.     nevermind photo.  Just seeing how it works 
    • Shooters always asks before handing over a gun. Personally, I feel it's a nothingburger, life is too short to worry about this type of stuff. Are people this upset when a cashier asks for ID when paying by check? Everyone should be MORE upset with the fact that Trenton actually makes you get the (unconstitutional) FID in the first place....
    • After engine failure, sure.   .. But flying into the side of a hillside in near zero visibility pretty much takes using the energy in the windmilling rotor to decelerate out of the equation. The pilot requested and was granted a Special VFR clearance that required he maintain visual contact with the ground.  Quite a bit different than SVFR in an airplane.  He apparently lost visual contact with the ground, then flew into it. I suspect he didn’t consider that the decisions he was making looked like the beginning of an NTSB accident report.
