What is it that you feel makes the Q5 SF less reliable than the P99 or the polymer-framed PPQ? If it needs to be babied, I may have to rethink my desire for one. (Currently that desire is being staved off by sticker shock and the fact that I've really gotten to love the paddle mag relase on the P99 and PPQ M1. The sticker shock could eventually be overcome by time and dedication to saving money, though...)

Have you tried Alliant Sport Pistol? A friend of mine has been quite happy with it, and I keep hearing that it's basically the same as N320 but much less expensive. I picked up a pound with my last order of primers, so I'll be trying it soonish, but I've still got a little bit of N320 to get through first.

Today, 9k through Q5 SF since the start of april.


Nowadays, still drag when chambering a round when the slide is forward / full mag inserted. It still has got something to do with the loose fitment of the inserted magazine, I guess?


In slide-lock-situations and hitting a fresh mag in, still everynow and then, the slide hits forward without chambering a round. Thats mainly because of my high support hand grip.


My biggest complaiment after 9k, is that the newly designed disassembly lever keeps biting in my thumb. I am a left-eye-dominant right-handed-shooter so my support/weak hand is quite high and aggressive.



In the linked picture you can see the scar-tissue in the second joint of my thumb. Tried to use normal wound-plaster and blister-plasters. Nowadays I use a light glove like this https://www.puuilo.fi/Puuilo-asentajankaesine-12pr-koko-S/7



..in my left supportive hand. It would be easy to treat the nasty lever with some file or Dremel-tool! But in IPSC-production, you arenīt allowed for such modifications.


Still, really satisfied with the performance of the SF!

Hmm, why is the take-down lever biting your left hand? Itís on the frame so it doesnít move and itís a nice place to put your thumb. I put my left thumb on it all the time. Itís nice and soft and grippy. Whatís wrong with it?

Mus have large hands and shooting with support index finger over the trigger guard.

Last fall we had a major match prep session at out local club. We ran the same pistol (5"1911) loaded with TG, PP, 320, and Sport pistol thru a recoil test. They were all loaded to approx 130PF with 147gr. FP's with the exception of the SP which had 160 Bayous.
We used 3 different people, they didn't know which loads they wer shooting and we asked them to tell which was softest. 320 came out on top very closely followed by SP, then Tight Group and Power Pistol.

I'll have to try it sometime, if its as clean and low flash/smoke as 320, the price and availability certainly cannot be overlooked.

I shoot with support/left index finger under the triggerguard. My support hand is high on frame as I described above. It is NOT the thumb or first joint resting on the takedown-lever with my grip, it is the second joint. While the Q5 SF recoils in my soft lil' hands, the lever gets its way through skin 'n bones.

Try shooting left handed...a serious suggestion. You might be pressing or torueing the pistol to align the sights for the left eye.

I actually shoot my pistols with the twohanded leftish grip everynow and then, especially my duty P99Q. It is a mind-opener to found more about how you grip your weapon. Duty-wise, its also a way to use cover more efficiently.

My standard high-grip on Q5 SF is not to pull or torgue to align the sights. It is to control the firearm.

I just returned from the gun club and specifically checked out the SF with a right hand hold. I was unable to get the web/lower joint on the left hand to cover the lever. However, I can forsee the web contacting that area if my grip is a little loose when firing. Is it possible that your high grip is actually reducing the grip force of the left hand?
