" When this item is held, the user has an 18.75% chance of attacking first if the moves all Pokémon use are within the same Speed Priority level. " ~ Description of Q-claw

So in the situation that you're using a move with 0 prioity ( normally move )
Mach Punch would go first. In the case that you have another move with +1 priority, such as Aqua Jet. There's a 18.75% chance of you going first.

Mach punch would go first, then the quick claw holder if there are no other priority moves. This has happened to me plenty of times with my Scizor and his Bullet Punch.
