First Look: Walther PPQ Q5 Match Conversion Kit

posted on October 10, 2019

The Walther PPQ Q5 Match series of pistols adds new levels of accuracy and performance to the standard PPQ line, and the popularity of this competition-specific lineup made many previous PPQ owners interested in experiencing the enhanced features on the Q5 Match lineup. With these customers in mind, Walther is proud to announce the release of the Q5 Match conversion kit for the standard PPQ series of pistols.

The Q5 Match series showcases Walther’s modern take on practical shooting and delivers a new level of efficiency and adaptability beyond earlier models of the PPQ. The configuration of the Q5 Match slide assembly allows shooters to mount optics, take advantage of a longer sight radius and experience faster cycling, thanks to the lightened slide., Now, the Q5 Match Conversion Kit allows you to add the accuracy, power, and speed of the Q5 Match to your standard PPQ handgun.

The slide on the conversion kit is outfitted with features previously found only on custom handguns. Ported and optic ready, the slide also features LPA sights and front and rear serrations. The 5-inch barrel with polygonal rifling and stepped chamber makes Walther’s enhanced accuracy available to PPQ owners who want to take their shooting to the next level.

The Q5 Match Conversion Kit works with any polymer PPQ 9 mm handgun (excluding Sub-Compact) and is ready to install. Includes slide, barrel, recoil assembly, all internal components, LPA rear sight, LPA fiber optic front sight and a test target showing a 5-shot group at 25 meters.

MSRP on the Q5 Match conversion kit is $599, and more information is available at
