Thanks to a new slide assembly from Walther, any person who owns a typical PPQ pistol (not compact models) can now convert their handgun into a Q5 Match pistol.
The Q5 Match conversion kit incorporates a slide outfitted with ports and an optics-prepared platform, LPA sights, and front and rear serrations. The kit also comes with the Q5 five-inch barrel with polygonal rifling and a stepped chamber.
The kit operates with any polymer PPA 9mm frame, excluding the sub-compact variants, and is prepared to set up out of the box with no gunsmithing vital.
The complete contents of the kit consist of the slide, barrel, recoil assembly, all internal elements, LPA rear sight, LPA fiber optic front sight, and a test target displaying a five-shot group at 25 meters.
The kit’s MSRP is $599, which tends to make sense as it incorporates most of the components of the gun that are most pricey to create. Unless actual planet costs wind up getting a bit significantly less, it is not that a great deal of a bargain.
If you personal a PPQ, it will price you about $600 to upgrade it with the Q5 Match kit, but it would only price about $50 far more to get an actual Q5 Match M1 pistol. That model is going for about $650 correct now in actual planet costs, and you get the upgraded factory trigger.
But, if you have a PPQ that has had some trigger perform carried out or some custom frame perform, it could definitely be worth it, and the value of the kits could possibly drop a bit.
