Overview

The Walther P88 Compact pistol is chambered for 9 x 19mm and was first made by the Walther company of Germany in 1988, hence the model name P88.

Its main feature was a high capacity, double stacked magazine designed for military and law enforcement use, hence its fully ambidextrous safety and slide release. In 1996 Walther discontinued the pistol in favour of the slightly lighter and smaller P88 compact which was also more economic to manufacture.

The original P88 whilst not achieving the military and police sales it had hoped for is highly regarded among collectors and sport shooters due to its impressive accuracy (1.5-2 inch groups at 25 yards) and high quality of construction.
