Yeah nice deal.
Estimates about $9 shipping for me.
In this case I would buy at my C Tire as it is quite close and would pick up a few extra things anyways.

Leaving for a plink session with my lady-friend and bringing my Legacy and CP88

If my CP88 shoots at 440 fps when its 22 Celsius, what might it be shooting when 8 Celsius ?

Anyways - heading out in an hour and Will pop in a cart warmed in my pocket and shoot 10m targets.

My friend will bring her PAL Stoeger .177 breakbarrel, which I enjoy sniping targets with - will bring orange practice golf balls and love to see them take a hit and bounce away :lol:

Anyone know where to get either the RWS or Air Venturi Speedloader for this pistol?

Been googling and everyone loves them (easily loads up to 7 rotary clips in about 20 seconds) - but not easy to find...

Got 3 rotary clips coming next week. Will test accuracy between the RWS Hobby and the RWS Meisterkugeln Pro.

Will eventually test the RWS Superdome too.

.....Does anyone else have the CP88 "tactical" ? .....(Google, images) ...I'd like to replace the barrel with one that extends through the mock silencer ....( 9-10 inches total ) ....How would that effect accuracy ?, fps ? .......

Here is a link to Part 3 of a review by B.B. Pelletier for the Tactical.

No where does he mention the actual length of the Tactical barrel - but does mention the longer barrel (vs the stock CP88 4"?) is more accurate.

He mentions in part one that indeed the single action trigger (as with all Walther pistols) give higher fps.

And, by mounting the Very Good Walther Red-dot - he is able to typically get 1" groups

http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2006/07/ ... al-part-3/

I wish he took a photo of it with the fake silencer off...

....The frame is threaded at the "muzzle" for the silencer......Unscrew the silencer and you have a standard CP88 with a 4" barrel ...... Mine is shiny black and is a handsome piece , I never use the silencer or the red-dot .... just seems a waste not to be able to run a longer barrel through the silencer ... There's the same set-up on the 92fs ,... there again, a longer barrel would have to be custom machined ..........such a missed opportunity ! ...

Thanks thumper ~

Hey guys once I shoot through a few tins I've been collecting, trying to find the best accurate pellet :wink:

I am going to get a tin of this RWS R10 Match Premium Line Light .177 Cal, 7.0gr

http://airgunsource.com/rws-r10-match-p ... 0gr/dp/183


I am thinking my groups should be a little better and maybe my baby would rather a different diet than the Hobby's... :wink:

Received the recommended Umarex co2 carts this past week (2x12).

So far, I have used 3 Umarex co2 carts (The brand recommended in the User Manual!) and 2 have been duds...

22 more to go...

I just hate returning things in the mail... costs time and inconvenience and money... :cry: :x

Anyone prefer the Umarex CO2 12gm vs other brands?

I don't see an issue using the Crosman, they work fine - but I saw a video review and the fellow said his '88 preferred the Umarex (possibly said Walther) because they are a better fit and more efficient getting more shots I think...

I see that a pack of 12 Umarex are $11.99 at Amazon.ca

No need to use their carts - Crosmans or those from Maria (camacho8218 on this forum) work just fine. Manufacturers always "recommend" their own producrts for their guns.

I believe these CP88 compensator assemblies come with a longer barrel. They show in stock.

...Yes, they do ITGUY....but that's for the "competition" version with the 2" compensator.......What I'm referring to is the "tactical" version with the 5" silencer......same pond, different fish ....

I prefer the 88 comp over the 88 tactical, function over form with actual extended barrel
May I suggest also for cheap, the new Daisy 5502 bb shooter with real extended barrel,
heard from a good source, that's it accurate shooter? Review on Replica airguns.

....More of a pellet shooter here.....I'm function over form myself, that's why I never use my CP88 with a 'mock' silencer.....D&L has the "competition" kit but only silver and flat black .....When I do order one I'll have my son re-paint it glossy black ( IMCustom airbrush.com , check out his work.....He's going to put a dragon on my M92fs and custom paint the grips )
