Walther PPQ M2 9mm Q5 Match Steel Frame Recoil Management Guide Rod System by Sprinco
Extend the life of your weapon by installing a Sprinco Recoil Management Guide Rod System. A secondary, or sub-spring assembly is incorporated onto a heat treated, stainless steel guide rod to cushion the slide to frame impact! All components, including the chrome silicon wire secondary springs, are hand polished to a brilliant finish for reduced friction.
Our products are used by many of the top competition shooters in the world, including both World and Multi-National Champions. Their reliability is validated by their use by Law Enforcement and Elite U.S. Military Forces around the world in combat deployment.
Sprinco USA Recoil Reducers make a significant difference by the management of peak impact forces to the slide /frame interface. The graduated sub-spring is engineered and critically positioned in each model to ensure normal cycling and reliability. In most models, the spent case has already been ejected prior to slide deceleration. The reduced slide to frame impact results in reduced energy transfer to the grip, wrist, and other extremities ("less felt recoil"), as well as extending the duty cycle of your pistol. This is a proven effective no frills, no gimmick approach to recoil management.
Installation is as easy as installing your stock guide rod system. No firearm modification is necessary to enjoy significant reductions in muzzle flip and perceived (felt) recoil. The system improves your shooting with faster follow up shots, faster sight recovery and improves control of your rapid fire shot strings. While you may not be bothered by the recoil of your gun, expert as well as novice shooters benefit from faster target acquisition and lowered split times.

I've been shooting with this recoil spring setup in completion for about a month now and after a break-in period I have found it to work quite well. I am still not a fan of uncaptured recoil springs and this one is no exception when it comes to installing it back into the firearm. Perceived recoil does seem a little softer than the factory recoil spring.
I have never been a big fan of uncultured recoil springs. This one is no exception. Took it to the range to test it out to see if it lives up to the claims of softer perceived recoil and enhanced buffer protection. I can't honestly say either of these claims proved out to be true to any appreciable degree. Because the spring is uncultured I found it to be a pain in the neck to install and line up. We'll have to see how this recoil spring works out over time.
Thought I would try this, as I have been match shooting my Q5 and was looking for a speed increase. This system works as advertised and gave an honest 20% reduction in felt recoil. The end result is my speed did increase. Quality part.
