At least I know what end of the gun to point down range.
It was just a funny and my shooting and Armory skills are definitely better than my picture taking.
Well I have to say original trigger was great but this Apex trigger puts the Q5 over the top
So far only going by feel. Hope to get out to range tomorrow.

Apex trigger range update

Made it to range yesterday with PPQ Q5 9mm after Apex trigger installed.
If I had to discribe in one word is WOW
When I 1st purchased this gun after shooting the 1st time I was going to get rid of it due to a gritty trigger pull.
Sent it back to the mother ship (Walther) Gun sent back with a receipt that said complete trigger replacement. Not much better. Then with the help of a Wonderful forum member Imaoldfart alias ( anchor klanker ) 2-springs arrived in the mail.This was over a year ago.
It was like a complete different gun. Deffently lighter trigger but most importantly so smooth, No gritty feel.
Being bored and deciding to do some creative spending I purchased the Apex trigger. Main reason to get rid of that blue thing. Just personally didn't like.
After a install with some youtube help a little phone support from Imaoldfart ( 2nd alias pooper scooper ) I have to say very crisp and short reset.
The gun has a good trigger on its own but this Apex trigger gives the gun the feel of one of the very best 1911's .Well worth the investment. It took me about 50 rounds down range to get use to it. After that I could double tap on targets while moveing around much faster and be VEŔY ACCURATE.
I have a few pistols but this Q has turned into my favorite and most accurate pistol I own.

Hee, hee.......another satisfied customer, and fellow pooper scooper. :D

And now, Sprinco offers a 'competition only' light trigger spring kit for the Q.

I don't believe the kit is available on their web site....you'd need to call to order.

Orders: 1-800-397-9530

Nope, as far as I know, they only offer 'one' kit. Here is Alan's description:

Walther PPQ "TSK Competition Trigger Kit" Designed with Daniel Thompson of Team Walther, Installation of the 2 springs renders a 3.5# Competition ONLY trigger pull. Includes replacement trigger return spring and firing pin safety spring. Moly Plated and Cryogenic Processed for long service life.

I have this kit, and I can say it performs as advertised. And, the Sprinco kit was developed/tested with the help of a Team Walther, competitive shooter. Unlike the spring kit developed/tested by a couple of rednecks on this forum. :D We lead the way....Sprinco took it to the next level.

Again, this is a competition package. Not recommended for SD/HD, etc.

Not only does the package provide for a lighter trigger pull, but the lessened pull weights result in less friction, which results in a smoother pull. So, its kinda like the old breath mint commercial....its two, its two....two mints in one.

Combine the Sprinco TSK, light spring kit with an Apex trigger and you've got a trigger that's hard to beat.

Any issues to be aware of with this spring kit? Lighter primer strikes? Slower reset? Still drop safe???

Morning Jimmmo. I'm not aware of any issues with this spring kit, other than proper placement of the pad of your finger on the trigger.

I ask this from the perspective of someone who is somewhat interested but wanting to know what he's getting involved in.

There are usually compromises made in these sort of things.

Good morning.

Thanks for the response. Can you elaborate on that a little? Are you referring to general safety, trigger control or potential issues with the dingus trigger safety?

Sure. The trigger safety (drop safety)....the 'dingus' HAS to be depressed to allow the trigger to be completely depressed to the rear. With the lighter springs installed, its possible to use a 'less than perfect' trigger finger 'pad' placement on the trigger shoe. Meaning, you can put your finger on the edge of the trigger shoe and start your pull. Its possible that the 'dingus' may not be fully depressed, which means the 'drop safety mechanism' will do its job....stopping the trigger movement as the nub on the dingus comes into contact with the frame.

Sooooo, with that in mind, one simply needs to use good trigger finger 'pad' placement on the trigger shoe. Its no biggie....just something people need to be aware of, and once they know this, its easy to train yourself to use proper finger placement. In MOST cases, this is simply not an issue.

Actually, this is not really an issue....as I've only heard of a couple of complaints. Once they were made aware of what was happening, they adjusted their poor trigger finger placement and the issue went away.

I see. Thanks again being willing to help. I have to think a bit as to if I want to go down that road....shooting a trigger that light can be addicting.
