  1. PK380 blew up

    PK380
    My wife was shooting her walther pk380 today and it was having the common jamming/cycling issues you hear about but as she was getting ready to fire, the gun blew up. The magazine fell out and was smoking, the polymer grip has several large cracks and had shifted down, the safety no longer...
  2. Walther Q5 Feed Issue

    PPQ
    Hi all! Anybody have an issue when you insert a magazine during a reload (gun in slide lock) and have the slide go forward by itself, BUT the bullet doesn't feed and results in a click instead of a bang? Happened to me 4 times over the span of 2 different competitions, quite annoying. Thanks...
  3. PPQ M2 5 inch and Q5 - do they have the same FTB issues?

    PPQ
    I'm interested in getting a PPQ M2 5" or the Q5 Match. This would be my home defense and/or survival gun. I'm worried about the failure to battery issues I've been reading about/seeing on youtube, which mainly have to do with either steel cased or reman ammo. I want to be able to run all types...
  4. New CCP dead in under 50 rounds (Solved - The AMMO!)

    CCP
    Action stuck open about 1/3, safety blown free from gun. Eventually the action started to hand cycle again. Field stripped, no obvious way to reinstall the safety. Tried to reinstall upper, stuck halfway on/off. There appears to be a bit of metal protruding from the channel where the hammer...

Switched ammo to 115 gr and FTF about once per mag for next...

  7. Walther PPS failure (firing pin/slide release?)

    PPS
    I went shooting this weekend, and my Walther PPS failed to chamber when I went to shoot my last 5 rounds. I have a .40cal with about 400 rounds through it purchased in January. I went to pull the trigger and it was soft. The round failed to seat in the chamber leaving the slide partially open...
