Any experience detail stripping a P88?

Just curious if anyone here has ever detail stripped a P88? From the parts kit I have the piece almost look similar to a Beretta 92. I wanted to ask before attempting to detail strip and do a once over on the pistol.


I also wanted to know if the ejector is supposed to have any play in it. Seems like the entire assembly is all tied together with a single pin. Just doing final checks before attempting to shoot it. Please advise and let me know. Thank you!

Why not just leave it unmolested?

Just entertaining my curiousity honestly. Plus I’m just wondering if play in the ejector is normal.

Of course the ejector has play. It's spring-loaded in the frame.

We all have our limitations. Leave the gun alone. Do not try to detail strip it.

Okay that was merely the reason I wanted to see why that was. My other pistols have fixed ejectors so i was curious if this was normal.

You're not the first person to ask about the ejector here. The P38 is the same way.

Yes, but on the P88 the spring is plainly visible.
