thank you mr. p. i don,t think i,ll paint over that nice nickel finish. that,s what makes this gun what it is. but those black grips are another story. not too sure about them yet.

hey p. or any other cp 88 owners. how does yours puncture the co2 cartridge-- good or not so good. i find i don,t get a very good hole . i,ve tightened that screw up as much as is almost possible.i think i remember i had the same problem with my beretta 92fs . it had the same set up.i,m using daisy co2 cartridges.

I'm new to this stuff and I imagine this is known but just checking regarding that puncture question..The Daisy cartridges seem to be a liitle shorter than the Crosman. Seems like for the Daisy Winchester pistol I had to use a Daisy cartridge due to space. Could that affect your puncturing? if true.

thanks leon. that puncture looks pretty good. when i turn the screw i turn the co2 bulb at the same time. it sems to help get tighter. i might try again today too and take some pics. p.s. is that a bat ring your wearing.

i think they might be a bit shorter 4star. i used to use the crossmans all the time long before i got this gun. i switched to daisy co2. i was thinking of trying some umarex ones.

i took a close look at my piercing pin on a couple of my other guns and they looked like they all extended down a tiny bit past the seal or were more out in the open. on my cp 88 the pin looks almost flush with the seal. i wonder if all the cp88 pins are the same. i have a cheap flip phone with camera so any pics are kinda blurry.

cool we like it.-- . heres what my co2 looks like after coming outta the cp88. dam all i got is my cheap flip phone camera. pics are a bit blurry. any way the top is punctured but not as good as yours is. the foil covering is still there but just pushed down. i wonder if i could put a little shim under the co2 when i tighten it in. double click you can kind of see how it,s pushed down--- but does have a rip hole in it.
