P88 Magazine: 10-round

Hi. I recently inherited a P88 in mint condition, but I live in California and therefore need to find a 10-round magazine clip. I searched online and couldn't find any other than make a mod myself. I have no such skills and would rather buy one instead. The guy at my gun range said he could order one for me, yet he didn't even know P88, so I don't know how much I could trust him. Does anybody know where I can find such "legal" magazine?

I doubt you will find any as I don't even think they ever made 10 round magazines for this Walther.

Try the Mec-Gar site.

10 Round Magazines/Pre-ban Mags?

ProMag makes them, but ProMag magazines don't always work. It's a crapshoot. Still, here you go ...

ProMag Mag Walther P88 9mm Luger 10-Round Steel Blue

I was thinking of them, but I wouldn't use one of their mags in anything let alone a Walther.

IIRC, the P99 mags fit and functioned in my P88. I no longer have it so I cannot be certain, but a 10 round P99 mag is cheap enough to try without being out much if it doesn't work.

I really do believe they worked.

I guess if my choices were a P88 with a Promag or absolutely no P88 at all, I'd be inclined to go for the P88 with a Promag.

MecGar made the P88 and Beretta 92 mags from the same mould and the magazine bodies are basically identical but the mag catch slot will need to be fitted.

FYI a Walther P88 15 round magazine in good condition isn't exactly cheap.

ProMag is discontinued. Looks like only choice is to give P99 magazine a try. I don't want to re-fit my original P88 magazine as I could easily sell them or use them when I'm outside of California.

The P99 Magazine is too short for the P88. The P99 Mag fits the P88c. Your best option , in my opinion, is to modify a Beretta 92 magazine, that is what Walther did.

It must have been the P88 mags that fit the P99 then. I remember trying these out and they did work, I just have the guns reversed.
