Just wanted to share my experience with a DIY Apex Tactical trigger install on a Q5 Match. I know, I know, the stock Walther trigger is pretty awesome, and the enemy of good is better, but the stock Q5 comes with a blue polymer (i.e., plastic) trigger that just looks not-so-great to me. It's a personal preference, not a common thought.


The Apex website has a short video on how to do the install. It looks really easy and the only special tool needed is a roll pin punch. Not having any gunsmith experience, I figured it would be almost as simple as the video. It's not, but it isn't rocket science and I didn't want to wait several days for a gunsmith to do it.


Installing the Apex trigger assembly in its correct position while attached to the trigger return spring and fitted in the sear housing while holding in the trigger bar guide was a monumental feat. It sounds complicated, and it is. Once you get it in, the assembly tends to disassemble itself when you move on to the next step, but after installing, removing and re-installing the system about a dozen times, I got it figured it out. Plus, the project involves a handful of small parts that go together in very specific ways. Reading glasses and good lighting help. Referencing Apex' video was necessary.


Thankfully there were no left-over parts like there always is when I work on cars, other than the factory trigger and bar.

The Apex trigger is crisp and light. The overall travel and return are shorter, and the pull is lighter. It's a terrific modification, even if it isn't absolutely necessary. Plus, I feel more connected to the pistol, a Zen thing.

I'll 3rd that
I was very disappointed with my Q5 until I got help on 2 springs from imaoldfart.
He not only knows his P's and Q's but I also heard was a irrigation specialist along with being a Super pooper scooper.:D

lolololol Oh nooooo, the words out.

And now, I've got more poop to scoop. Picked up a stray German shepherd Monday...she's been running loose for about a month. Little skinny and REALLY skittish.....but we'll fatten er' up, and she's already taking food out of my hand and following me around.

Good luck with your new doggie Old Fart. I love dogs and cats and think it's really great of you to take on that stray dog. Maybe some before and after pics once she is fattened up? :)

She's doing great. Unbelievable progress, daily. She IS food aggressive, but that's understandable, and we're working on that.....its only concerning other 4 legged animals. I can hold her food dish while she's eating and she wags her tail.


Very cute dog! I hope she gets better with food regarding the other dogs. She found a great owner to have :D

Thanks for the comments. She's getting better daily.....not kidding. She follow's me around everywhere.....wagging her tail. Loves homemade oatmeal cookies. :D

I'm just careful when it comes to feeding time....keeping them separated...actually, I just sit in the floor about 3 feet from her ... between her and the other three while they're eating. When it comes to hand feeding them treats....I hand each one a bite, and she waits patiently for her turn...and this is while sitting right next to the other three. She's more gentle about taking treats from my hand than the other three...go figure. :D
