When I noticed the CP88 in a Gunshop window I asked in the Gunshop what the gun was and could I have a look at it. When I looked at the CP88 I noticed how well made it looked and how good it felt in my hand. I realised I could work on the trigger and enjoy shooting the CP88 and I paid £200 for it. The CP88 can be bought cheaper than I paid for mine but no anywhere local to me. Like other Co2 Pistols the CP88 shot high at my targets, even though I soon learned where to aim to hit the target in the middle. The CP88 was accurate using some Dynamit Nobel pellets I obtained from my local shooting club. I had a choice, should I purchase the 6 inch barrel extension or the fully adjustable sights for my CP88? I did not want to turn my small and light CP88 into a "Wyatt Earp Buntline" on the suggestion it would be more accurate with a barrel extension. It was accurate enough with it's 4 inch barrel so I chose to buy the adjustable sights for it. I also did not want to increase the weight of my CP88. The foresight of my adjustable sights needed to be lightly filed on it's base to enable me to re-assemble the CP88 because the pin that fits into the barrel is such a tight fit and the foresight prevented the barrel from assembling properly. I do not need the 6 inch barrel extension because my CP88 is now accurate enough. The pellets I shoot at my recognised paper targets group in more or less the same place on each of the targets with my CP88. (And it's 4 inch barrel).
