Hi,
Now I have my P88 I'd like to 'meet' some other owners and see what they think about the P88 and see their pistols, holsters and other P88 items.

Can someone tell me what the gun writers back in the late 80s thought of the P88 and what design changes (and when) were made during it's production, eg. triggrer stop, sight.

cheers,

John H

Hi gokyo,

nice looking P88, what do you find good/bad about your P88 to give you two a love/hate relationship?
I can't quite make out the your P88 S/N, what is it?

I just bought an early Walther made P88 holster, probably never use it but I'm a collector and looking for original P88 stuff.

cheers,

John H

The "beaver tail" is to thick. I like a high grip and the design of the grip forces me to grip much below the slide. This is a design necessity due to the hammer. Also I find the grip width a little too wide.

The trigger is not as smooth as I would like in SA.

The trigger is very good for a DA.

The things I like about it are the mild recoil. The workmanship is very good. The design features are awesome.

When I bought it I was kind of expecting a 15 round HK P9S Target pistol. However that is not a fair standard. When you consider it was degsigned as a duty weapon which should be compared to the likes of a Berretta 92F it becomes very clear how wonderful of a service weapon it is.

I erased the the last 2 digits of the SN. I am not sure why I just feel weird about my pistols SN floating around in cyberspace. It may not be not rational.
