Does anyone know if you can purchase the new Navy striker assembly to put in a standard PPQ? I'd like to do this and drill the holes in the slide as well.

I'd like to know as well, and also how easy is it to replace the striker assembly?

Is this something most inexperienced people can do? Or something that should be done by a gunsmith?

Also, is the finish on the slides really the same? I noticed my Navy version had a more "matte" like finish while the standard m1 was a little slicker. When I called Earl's he said the finish was different between the Navy and standard model, but I don't know how true that is. He also said he was the only source for PPQ m1's which didn't sound true, so I don't know if he was trying to talk me into one of the $1900 m1 Navy's he had or if they really do heave a special finish on the slides

It is as easy as can be. All you need is something to press in the small tab on the top-right side of the slide plate, pull the slide plate down, and replace the striker assembly. The Navy striker assembly will drop right in. But there isn't much reason to install a Navy striker assembly in a standard PPQ.

Out of water, I personally think the standard PPQ may actually be more reliable with a wider range of ammunition, due to the weaker striker spring, though I haven't heard of any examples to prove this.

^ thank you; if you don't mind, can you expand on why you think it would be more reliable with a weaker striker spring?

My goal is to make the gun as reliable as can be. The threaded barrel isn't so important, and I see how the drainage hole can cause dust to get inside. I was under the impression that a stronger striker spring would be better in or out of water.

Thanks again

The drainage ports are on the inside and dust isn't a problem....I know, I EDC my Navy Q.

As is, either Q will be extremely reliable.

Unless you are going to be in a marine environment the Navy Q might be over kill.

I am in, on or under the ocean on a daily basis and my Q has "gone swimming" more then once. I want to be sure my weapon will fire even if pulled right out of the water...the stronger striker spring allows for better force if the channel still has liquid in it. It will impact the primer hard enough to ignite the powder.

I believe the slot IS there, it's just that the spring on the right is properly situated in the slot, and the spring on the left has gotten moved a bit to the right, and so is not quite all the way in the slot. Look closely at the locations of the springs, in comparison to each other.

Has anyone tried shooting the regular PPQ underwater to see if it works? I'm about to try it. . . lol.

First, I'd ask why you would want to?

Then, I'd probably suggest that you didn't try this. There is a lot more pressure in the chamber when the bullet has to push a barrel full of water out of the way before it exits the muzzle.

It will probably work, but it isn't optimized to be fired underwater, and the Navy will probably be more reliable in a wider range of conditions or scenarios underwater.

But the question of "why" keeps coming to mind. Finding out if my pistol fires underwater isn't keeping me up at night, though finding out what the previous owners of my pistols that were purchased used did when they owned them, well...

I will say that the Navy does fire fine underwater....do not use hollow points....

I'll be trying at 2 atmospheres (28 psi) soon and will let everyone know the results.....I'm not chancing it at greater pressures (or depths, greater depths mean greater pressures).
