I just passed the 10k round mark through my 18 month old PPQ M2 4". I love this gun. I carry it concealed (or my PPS M2) and I shoot USPSA with it.

Although I've had basically no problems with it, considering the round count and that I don't want any surprises during a match (or even worse, a defensive situation), I'd like to do some preventive parts replacement on it. I'm only interested in replacing factory parts, nothing aftermarket.

What parts do you think I should replace, and what is the most cost-effective way to do it? Should I just call Walther to order parts? or I think I saw that a certain email address will get me straight to the person at Walther to order parts. Thanks for the help.

The recoil spring is really important I guess. The breech block in my Q5 cracked in 14k and I managed to replace the RSA once before in about 6k. The problem here in Finland has been the availability of service parts. Got mine from the German plant... Thanks for the guys in Ulm :)


With for example Glocks, even here you can get all the service parts from nearly every local GunShop/Hunting gear-markets..:cool:

Still waiting for few RSA´s. The controlability with worn RSA is horrible on these. And yes, I shoot all mild factory ammo :)

If you don't have a routine already make sure you disassemble the striker assembly and clean it up. I was getting some ftf with mine after about 5k rounds after I cleaned up the striker assembly no issues since

Just the recoil spring.

Parts breakages on these pistols are pretty rare, and it is hard to put a round count interval on any individual part other than the recoil spring assembly, which should be changed every 5k rounds due to loss in spring pressure more than a worry about the guide rod breaking.

I would keep a spare of every spring in the pistol, just to have on hand, but I wouldn't replace them at 10k round intervals. If the worry was about a part breaking on a defensive pistol, the best spare part you can buy is another PPQ. Put the brunt of the rounds through the first one, and only shoot the second one enough to prove it is reliable. Carry the second one.

I am pushing 40k. The only thing I replaced, well after 30k, was the plastic guide rod because it started looking like a limp dick. It didnt malfunction. I never had a single problem. I just had a buddy with an extra steel guide rod he was giving away.

Just shoot and lube. Cleaning is very very optional.

What is a good source for the springs
