just purchased a p88 in 9x21
Will 9mm work in the above gun?

If so, I can probably use 9x19 mags as well.

Thanks

9x21 is essentially the same COAL as 9x19. No clue how it would feed though.

My P88 tends to favor ammo that isn’t on the longer side of COAL. I experienced this with older IMI UZI labeled 9mm.

Hello, I would advise against shooting 9x19 in an unmodified 9x21 gun. The 9x21 was mainly designed to provide Italian civilian shooters with an alternative to the 9x19, which is only allowed for the military and law enforcement over there. Although the performance of both cartridges is very similar their dimensions are obviously not. It is however possible that the barrel may be modified to accommodate the 9x19. You may want to raise this question in the Beretta forum, where there are some Italian members.
