10 round mag

Did PalmPC ever find a 10 round mag for the P88? I would love to find one.

Well this thread is handy if not a little depressing. Just picked up my Walther P88 Champion which has only one blocked mag to 10rds.

Seems like my chances of finding something here (Australia) will be very remote, especially since 1. the gun is rare here 2. We have restricted mag limits to 10rds so more blocked 15's will likely not exist.

Why not just make one from a 15-rounder?

Drill a hole through the floorplate and its retainer, solder a nut on the inside of the retainer, then reassemble and thread a long machine screw into the hole. Screw it in until the tip of the screw extends high enough inside the magazine to block the follower from descending any further after 10 rounds are loaded. Mark the screw, cut it to that length, thread it back in, and you're done.

For the obvious reason, if you can't have 15 rounders then getting one to convert is not so easy.

The factory 10rd P88 Compact magazine would be used in the P88 Champion. I suppose the question is this - are there any in Australia?

There are likely no P88 compact mags around either.
The P88 is pretty uncommon here, my Champion is the only one I have seen in 15 years in the country.

Would a P88c mag work though? I thought people have said the P88c and P99 can share mags. I've tried my p99 and ppq mags and they are too short (10rd) plus I couldn't imagine a compact mag working in the full size gun anyway.

The Champion is derived from the P88 Compact which normally takes a 14rd magazine as opposed to the full size P88 which normally takes a 15rd magazine.

Concerning the 10rd magazines - the mag bodies for the P99 and P88C are the same. The block baseplates make the lengths different.

If the P88C baseplates were available separately, the P99 mags could be made to work.

P99/P88C

Thats good news then.

There may be no P88c 10rd mags here but I can import 10rd mags with out issues.
