Q5 match sf and the DPM recoil reduction system

Does anybody know if the DPM recoil reduction system work with the Q5 Match SF. I cannot find any info that shows that they make it for the SF. I hope that the polymer version works for the SF. I have tried the Sprinco system for the polymer version but I want to try the DPM if it will work on the SF.
Thanks

The Walther factory part number for the RSA is different for the PPQ and PPQ SF. It'd be my guess trying to put a PPQ/Q5 RSA in an SF will probably not work. Could be different spring assembly dimensions, or spring rate.

I think your best bet is to wait and see if DPM will start offering a recoil spring assembly, specifically for the SF. Frankly, I don't see that happening.

My understanding is that the SF is identical to the polymer version with the exception of the steel frame and steel guide rod. If that is correct then according to DPM their product should fit both.

I had the DPM system in my polymer Q5. Found a post on Instagram that said the same system with a little modification would fit in the SF. I tried and it worked. The difference is that the take down lever on the SF had a little notch. The "guide rod" needs to have a hole so that the notch fits in. The last two pics are mine.
Shot a match this past Sunday and had no problems. I keep my stock guide rod in my bag in case.

*yes, my finger is dirty. It's from changing my engine oil and transmission fluid today =P

Did you notice any discernible difference when using the guide rod? I realize its a "recoil reducer" but is it enough to warrant the change? Curious to buy one for the Q5 SF, P99, and P88.


Off topic, MR2 as in SW20? I used to own one back in the day

I though the steel frame was the recoil reduction system.

The DPM recoil reduction system is a waste of money on the polymer frame version. Can't see it doing any better on the SF version.

Other shooters using the DPM have reported different results and opinions.

I'll have to put the stock guide rod back in and try it again this Saturday. I've only shot it two times total (two separate days at the range). I was just happy to shoot an all steel again. I really dislike the Q5 poly, even with the DPM system. I think it might have the grip or grip surface.

I used to shoot a shadow one, switched to the Q5 poly for the Walther contingency for Area 4 this year. After shooting the Q5 poly for awhile. I feel it was not the gun for me. In my shadow I have the DPM system and I love it. That's why I got one for the Q5 poly. With my Shadow, I also had the Henning contour grip. The grip on the Q5 SF is similar in texture and width to the Henning contour grips on my Shadow.

Hey, I started shooting and wanted to get better. Did a bit of research and found out about the DPM system; got me curious so I purchased one and gave it a try. It did help a little with recoil management but it was more about feel. I liked the feedback I got from it. I know it's probably not for everyone. I've also tried the Sprinco recoil system. I used to have that in my Canik SFX. It used the same recoil setup as a Q5. One of the Walther shooters is actually using the Sprinco recoil system in his Walthers. It was in his Q5 poly and then he put it in his Q5 SF. He even helped design the spring kit (trigger return spring and plunger spring?) with Sprinco.

Yes, MR2 as in the SW20. I fell in love with that car back in High school. Sadly, i did not have one. This has been my SN since then =D

Report back when you do. Interested to hear what perceived difference you really feel.

Miss my Gen 2 btw. Factory 3SGTE in Silver. Wouldn’t mind another one .
