By chance I came across a P88 Compact online at an attractive price. I was hesitant, given my experience with the full size gun, but took a chance and bid. I won unexpectedly.

I must say that I am very happy with it. While I still prefer the ergonomics of the Sig I think the trigger is superior and it is easier to disassemble.
Congratulations. Glad it worked out for you.

I got super lucky between March and April. I found 2 Walther P88 full sizes in the most anti gun birthplace of California. Both were found a month apart, in Silicon Valley of all places. Serial 6833 and 6912.

Quite a feat because were burdened with a safe handgun roster. Guns not on that list create a premium market since they are not allowed to be sold in the state unless it has been currently owned by a CA resident while it was still approved for sale in CA. It’s complicated.

Fabulous shooters! Really timeless and elegant.

I've had a P88 and P88 Compact on my wanted list since the mid 1990's but, as much as my lust overfloweth, I couldn't bring myself to spring for one. I was at the height of my Sig Sauer obsession during the mid 1990's and as much as I loved Walther pistols, I couldn't rationalize the difference in price. Then, life, marriage, kids, college, etc. took priority for quite awhile and I put my aspirations of owning a P88 on the back burner...until last week. This one is inbound and should be here around the end of the week! Stoked!
