    Have the opportunity to purchase a Walther P-88 (9x19) in excellent condition. Would appreciate any experience you might have with this pistol. Thanks. Chichay

    Excellent pistol from the old world production. The fit and finish are first class for a production gun. Kind of rare to find one these days, make sure you can obtain extra magazines.

    Had one from NIB and went NIB, never shot it because NIB. As a matter of fact that's the one mede me realize to stay away from buying pre-own NIB, no advantage of owning it. Can't play with it unless you're ready to take a lost.

    Did some shooting with a friend's P88. Quality handgun! Extremely accurate! Only complaint is grip was very thick. A hindrance for small to medium sized hands. John

    I've always wanted a P-88. I've never seen one other than pics.

    Go for it! You won't be disappointed.

    It is a P88 not a P38, in excellent condition, 3 original magazines, cleaning kit, manual and box. Bluing is perfect. Action is very smooth. Kind of reminds me of my P210-6. Looks like the pistol has hardly been fired. Price $850. Chichay
