Having issues cycling low power "bulk" 22 ammo? Using a reduced power recoil spring may help alleviate the problem. The factory recoil spring in the Walther PPQ-22 is approximately 4 pounds. Our reduced power recoil spring is approximately 3.3 pounds. The reduction in spring weight may help your pistol cycle lower power ammo for more reliable function. The ammo has to overcome the tension of the recoil and striker/hammer springs in the gun. Reducing the tension on the springs may help with reliability. There is no guarantee that changing to a lighter recoil spring will solve the problem 100% since the ammo still has to over come the spring tension of the striker/hammer spring. But this is a low cost, simple method that may work for your gun and ammo.

Keep in mind this is a new spring and therefore it has not yet "set" or been compressed yet. So the first time you install it may seem too long but it is the correct length and will become shorter after being compressed. See the installation instructions for a tip to install new recoil springs in Walther type 22LR pistols.

Installation Instructions RESTRICTIONS

1) Pull down the takedown catch

2) pull back the slide all the way to the rear and pull up the back side of the slide.

3) While holding the rear section of the slide up allow the side to move forward and come off the frame.

4) Remove the old recoil spring.

5) Install the new recoil spring and reverse steps 1-4. Using a rod the diameter of the internal diameter of the spring will aid in guiding the spring onto the guide rod while assembling the gun. (See the photos below).

5 of 5 Problem solving springs December 13, 2020
Reviewer: Vitaly Khozyainov from Kirkland, WA United States  
My PPQ 22 developed a problem: trigger is not resetting. Walther decided that the issue is with the barrel, and replaced the barrel. It did not solve the problem, through. I called Walther and found that they now insist on using only CCI Mini Mags or HV copper-plated Federal ammo, otherwise the gun is not supposed to work and they won't even consider the issue. I used to shoot a variety of HV and SV ammo before with no issues, as the manual clearly states that PPQ is designed for any SAAMI-compliant ammo, but I decided to try these reduced power springs just to see if they'll make a difference. Indeed, the gun now runs fine with Aguila HV 40 gr!
Highly recommend as a solution to worn-out .22LR PPQs Walther refuses to fix

4 of 5 Tricky install... April 15, 2020
Reviewer: Tim Mihulka from Sheldonville, NE United States  
Got the PPQ .22lr reduced power recoil spring, tricky to install, new spring is way longer than used spring. Took using the reassembly rod from Walther, and a few tries to get installed. Haven't fired yet with standard velocity rounds, going to try out as soon as possible.
