Hello all, I have a chance to purchase a mint P88 compact. Asking price is $800. Seems like a good deal to me. I have handled the gun and it is in excellent shape. It has two 10rnd mags. What do all think?
Hi Zorn, I have never owned the P88c but I hear it is a great gun. I've been checking the auction sites and $800.00 seems like a good price. I've seen many of them over $900.00. The reason I know this is because I just purchased a new P88 full size and was looking at prices for the last month. You can get the hi-cap mags for them also, I've seen quite a few places advertise them. So if you decide to purchase the gun and down the road you want more than 10 shots (11 with one in the pipe) you can have 14 shots (15 with one in the pipe). I just bought a couple of hi-caps for the full size gun. Good luck and if you decide to get the gun let me know. Also PM me if you want to know where to get the hi-caps. Eddie.

I will answer a few basic questions
I know that some of you are interested in the premium versions of the P88. I happened to note an upcoming auction (4/11/20) that is previewed (briefly) here. I have no financial or other interest in this pistol, just passing the information along...
Well this forum is a little slow so how about a rollcall of P88 or P88 Compact owners.
I have both and prefer the P88C, except for the slide mounted safety/decocker. I much prefer the P88's frame mounted lever.
I recently bought a beretta 92 mag, and modified it by making a slot for the mag latch so it would work in the P88. It works as well as the factory P88 mags, and the only way you can tell from a distance is the mag I tried was not glossy(used military issue). $9 beats $125 for price as far as...
