Wanting to upgrade from the Gamo AF-10 I was delighted with the CP88 right from the start. It has an excellent hefty feel to it and is clearly of high quality manufacture. Mine was the satin finish variant. Loading the gas cartridge is simple and the 8-shot circular magazines are really easy to load up and insert into the pistol. With being both double and single action you can slow-shoot target mode or rattle off the entire magazine as you wish. Accuracy was excellent, shooting at old CDs… Read Full Review

This Walther pistol is one of the best air pistols I own hands down and I own a lot of air guns in pistol and rifles. The gun is very well made and shoots great German made what else can you say… Read Full Review

the walther cp88 not the umarex cp88 what is it, what do you want it to do,as i found it looks great shoots well at 10 metres after that pellets flying all over,it is not a target pistol and never will be it is just a fast fire mass produced pile of dogs droppings, why do people buy these things,they are not even good for home self defence,i would sooner hit the target with 1 shot than fail trying with 8 shots,as for home defence i shot a full 8 shot mag over the chrono at a target 25 yards and… Read Full Review

I really like this gun, ive owned single shot pellet guns before but this is my first co2 cart. powered gun (although I have used them in the past) this one looks great, feels well made, and never misfires. it holds 8 rounds which can be shot off as quick as you can pull the trigger. only plastic i see on it is is the side grips that pop off for co2 change. reloading mechanism feels solid. don't really have anything bad to say about it, all around quality pellet gun… Read Full Review

This is by far the best pistol umarex has to offer. Its pretty powerful at around 390 fps and its very accurate to! i can get a nice 1 1/2 inch group at around 10-15 metres. Its well built german quality and you can feel this when its in your hand. I like my compact pistols and i also own the cp99, But if i had to choose between any of the umarex range of pistols, The cp88 would be my first choice, The beretta 92f is quite similar in design but is a little bit more heavy and the 92f has a large… Read Full Review

I have 2 Walther CP88 pistols and the are excellent pistols, both have a 4inch barrells but one has a moderator fitted and although it does not make a lot of difference to the noise I find the extra barrell lenght makes this one more slightly more acurate. I have 2 extra magazines for each pistol and I get about 80 good shots from each pistol which is very good and although they are not acurate enough for competition shooting I love the feel and weight of the pistols and they are excellent… Read Full Review

I purchased this pistol s/h having put almost 5 tins of different pellets through its magazines in a couple of months its a very enjoyable pistol to hold and use it felt just right when I picked it up mine is a early black version a little more metal I think than the newer ones. I use it on single shot and find it quite accurate when the co2 is almost up then it is a bit as if you need to aim a far bit higher on target.easy co2 change,weight a tad heavier than the real thing, the biggest… Read Full Review

At first look i thought this gun looked a little pricey but its worth every single penny its made in germany extremely good quality ive dropped it 3 times and not even a scratch this is quite a heavy gun because of the all metal construction even the 8 roud magazines you recive with it is metal there is also many different versions of this gun ive just got the standard 4 inch standard grip gun although there is nickel and wooden grips different prices will be for different accessories....this… Read Full Review

The Walther CP88 is a nice heavyweight replica of the 9mm P88. Great fun for plinking in the garden or accurate enough for target shooting at up to 15m.Easy to load and change Co2 cartridge it is a quality item. There are far more powerful air pistols but not many as much fun to use as the CP88. Lots about and good used ones are easy to find, mine was £89 from a local dealer still in original case with Co2 and pellets. You just cant stop using it and its so hard to put down!… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review

I own the 4' blued Walther cp88 with walnut grips. It was the only pistol in the shop that felt correct in my hand. I have medium to small hands(5'9' 74kg). It has a nice solid well balanced weight, @95 metal construction(wood grips). Excellent power, especially at the start of a co2 canister, fairly loud too. I found some pellets a little long and would not work correctly in the rotating mags. I highly recommend Crossman premier domed. Very accurate, especially taking cocked single shots. If… Read Full Review

This is a very well made pistol, accurate and simple to use.
The saftey catch is well placed, but was a little stiff when new.
The only problem is when the pistol is first loaded and the hammer is pulled back, the pistol does not always load fully and the hammer will not stay to the rear.
Otherwise, this is a very well made pistol and I would recommend before the Walther CP99… Read Full Review

The Walther CP88 when new was great: had a good amount of power- would easily take down small vermin, good accuracy and was reliable. Due to excessive use and wear and tear, the teeth on the mags have worn down and is no longer semi-auto (this however could be soon resolved with new mags) and power seems to have considerably dropped even when a new cartridge is installed. Another gripe is the fact that the breech can stick. I am soon going to renew this pistol and will seriously consider… Read Full Review

Magazine a bit fiddly to load on the walther cp88, will not fire unless lined up precisely. Apart from that little niggle this is a very well made and reliable gun.
The balance and accuracy are spot on and if well maintained should give many years of happy recreational target shooting.
If you enjoy rapid shooting then spare magazines are a must unless you actually enjoy reloading them in the field every two minuets.

Bought a cp99 and was not impressed with the plastic feel and also found that it pulled to the left so swapped it for cp88 and could not beleive the difference in quality cp88 is a heavier gun but feels great and is so much smoother than cp99. cp99 has cheap laser printing of model numbers and makers name , cp88 has these crisply stamped or machine cut which all adds to the quality look of this gun… Read Full Review

The CP-88 review
The walther CP-88 4" version is a marvellous piece of German engineering forget those who say it's a garage gun all though its very fun to use its more for the club it is a serious piece of kit very accurate the rolls Royce of pistols in my perspective and looks good with maple wood grips I recommend this pistol I give it 10/10 for multiple reasons… Read Full Review

I have owned several CO2 pistols over the past few years and I have to say that the CP88 is by far my favourite.
The feel, the looks, the accuracy and the quality manafacturing just all comes together so well. If you are looking to by a multi shot CO2 pistol then this is the one without a doubt… Read Full Review
