There are multiple iterations of ejectors. Some new PDP Poly ejectors clear, but others do not. The DPT ejectors clear the slide, but we cannot guarantee compatiblity at this time. We are working with Walther to determine which models have the requried ejector geometry.


Our Long Stroke PDP guide rod system will take your PDP Match 5" to the next level.  We went back to the drawig board and designed a new system that increases the slide stroke of the PDP to attenuate the recoil over a longer distance.  By eliminating the plastic spacer, the slide can travel futher rearward which allows it more distance to slow and softens the impulse as the slide hits its rearward stop.  The rod is 5/16" diameter and uses a custom ISMI 14lb spring.  We swiss turn the rod from stainless steel and the front cap/bushing from brass for added lubricity.  Captured design drops right in the gun.  Adding over 40 grams of unsprung mass to the gun helps further reduce muzzle rise. Will NOT work on a compact or poly frames, Match only!

  • Will NOT work 4.5 or 4" PDP or 5" PPQ or Q5
  • MUST remove the plastic spacer in the slide

    Awesome improvement

    Posted by Joseph chavez on Jun 6th 2024

    The pdp sf is a noticeable improvement in muzzle rise and soft shooting feel to the polymer pdp. But after installing this in my sf it was noticeably softer in its recoil impulse and in slow mo it confirms it. If you’re on the fence about getting one, it’s worth it!

    New level PDP SF Match 5”

    Posted by Rick on Mar 17th 2024

    Takes the gun to a new level. Softens recoil impulse. Walther should have done this as standard on this gun.

    This guide rod really tames the recoil of this pistol! I have been able to run down to 110 power factor with this guide rod without any issues. It's so good I've ordered another one!!!

    Not only did this 5 inch long stroke guide rod work on the steel frame pdp match,it also worked on my 5 inch poly frame pdp match! Smoother to pull back and way better recoil and easy to install. Also have a black color option if want to keep all black on black! I highly recommend and also customer service was honest and knowledgeable was a pleasure !
