FAQs PPQ long barrel pistol

What ammunition will this gun shoot?

A) Most semi-auto 22. LR’s are ammunition fickle. The PPQ is not. It will shoot the majority of standard subsonic/hyper 22 LR ammo waxed or un-waxed. Please look on YouTube at the videos available showing the multiple ammos used on this gun.

Can I completely dismantle the gun?

A) The gun can be dismantled as per a standard PPQ MQ .22 LR and comes with a manual to show you how to do it or look on YouTube as there are many helpful examples.

Does the ported barrel and suppressor require me to get a variant for a suppressor on my firearms certificate?

A) The general opinion is because the barrel is ported which is an integral part of the weapon it does not require a separate variation for a suppressor. Please always check with your licensing department.

Does the ported barrel reduce the noise?

A) Yes it does and that’s why we do it.

I have seen information that ported barrels have a tendency for the holes to block up?

A) This does not generally occur but if found to happen the holes can be cleared using interdental brushes.

Do I need to heavily lubricate the pistol for it to work?

A) No. we advise placing a small amount of oil on slide rails but also keeping a light wipe of oil over all metal parts to prevent any rusting.

Can I modify the overall length of the weapon?

A) NO! It is a criminal offence under the firearms act to shorten either the barrel or the overall length of this platform as this would convert the firearm into a prohibited weapon under category section 5. 

Can I fit any red dot sight?

A) Sadly not. We have machined and prepared the slide to specifically work with our preferred provider to ensure reliability. Any aftermarket retro fitting of other sites may affect the function and reliability of the weapon will void your warranty.

What is the warranty on the gun?

A) The gun comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Does this come with a changeable back-strap?

A) Sadly not.

If I wanted the finish modified to a different colour?

A) Yes we can, please email your requirements and we will assist you.

Can I see a gun? 

A) Please email us with your full address and postcode and we will refer you to your nearest RFD.

Can I buy directly from you and have it mailed to me?

A) You may buy directly from us but the firearm will be required to be placed your certificate in sight the usual method of this is for us to ship the firearm to your nearest and preferred RFD and he will handle placing it on your certificate.

How do I get a variation for a long barrel pistol?

A) Apply to your firearms licensing department providing good reason such as membership of a target pistol club.

Can I possess more than one long barrel pistol?

A) Yes, however you will need to satisfy your licensing department that you have the good reason. Typically this would be to cover different weapon disciplines such as open sight and red dot sight. In all cases check with your licensing department and club.

When auctioning the slide to put a round in the chamber, the round snags and does not enter the chamber?

A) Check the thread adapter securing the end of the barrel/sleeve is torqued on tightly.

Sometimes the slide locks back when there are still rounds in the magazine?

A) Check the position of your thumbs to ensure they are not applying pressure on the slide release lever. This is apparent due to the ambidextrous design of the slide release.
