Good job Keith. Reminds me of when Lanzer did the R&D on the trigger return spring and I did the follow-on R&D on the FPB spring, the combo reduced the PPQ trigger pull to 3 lbs, or less.....depending on the springs used. Walther is now offering reduced power trigger return springs......where do you think THAT idea came from?

In addition, Lanzer also came up with the mod to allow adjustment (a forward stop) of the single action lever, reducing the creep....THAT same idea is available on the Q5 Match Champion.

I'd expect Walther to be feverishly working on a replacement 'ejector' spring for the Q5 Match SF.

They are out there. I'm seeing them at area LRSs. Davidson's Gallery of Guns shows them in stock.

It's not a commodity gun. There are not tons of them around but they are out there.

Feel free to send me an email to further discuss at [email protected]. or send me a private message. I'm offering the springs at 10 dollars each and if you order 5 or more I will sell for a reduced price. Not trying to make money but rather get back my investment at this time.
If you're not trying to make money, then why hide the information?

Just how many springs did you have to buy?

I would assume these springs are custom made by some spring manufacturing shop with the exact specifications Keith gave them. I would assume this custom spring manufacturer has a minimum order of 5 springs (high cost per spring). The cost per spring may go down if he'd order something like 50 or 200 springs in one go, etc.

Keith, I can't thank you enough for all the time and work you put into this. I will be contacting you via email to acquire a few of those magical springs.


Thank you again!!!

Ok, I finally got some time to see what my Q5 SF does with low-powered match ammo loads. Last time I tried with this ammo was during a match and got a double-feed while on the timer so I didn't have time to analyze the situation at that time.

Today I went through about 50 rounds at the range and got a failure-to-eject (stove pipe) on the last round in a magazine of 15 rounds. More often than not, the slide failed to lock back when a mag went empty.

I filmed it with high FPS gopro, but I haven't reviewed that footage yet. It was also a pretty dark indoor range, so not sure if anything can been seen...

Anyway, it seems to me that the slide doesn't cycle all the way back with this ammo, preventing the slide from locking back properly when empty and sometimes causing a failure-to-eject.

I'm thinking that I need a weaker guide rod spring when using this ammo...?

I'm going to try with Keith's stronger extractor spring, which may help with extraction and ejection. But I think I may still need a new guide rod spring too for proper slide lock, and may also help with ejection further.

Btw, note that my Q5SF has no problems at all with Blazer 124gr factory ammo (power factor 142). I've gone through thousands of rounds of those without a single problem. It's just this hand-loaded low-powered match ammo (power factor 130-something) that causes problems for me.

Where would you guys recommend me to go to find a weaker recoil spring? Sprinco? Apparently they have a "yellow" spring for lighter loads... (part 19172)

(I've attached photo of the stove pipe)

I use Wilson Combat springs in some of my Q's. Don't have an SF, so can't confirm they'll fit....but I'm thinking they will.
