There was an interesting site called The Pistol Place, I discovered it a few years ago and I enjoyed it very much.

The articles were well documented and well written so when a e-book on Umarex replicas was published I bought it.

I got in touch with Steve when I was looking for the Crosman 451 Factory Service Manual. Unfortunately he couldn't help me with it but I eventually collaborated with him on a series of articles on the making of a replacement hammer.

A few weeks ago he got hijacked by his service provider. The site was locked and after contacting them he discovered that to continue renting his site would mean a 20 times multiplication of his fees.

Feeling that he was not fairly treated he decided to rebuild his site.

So if you are interested in unbiased reviews of replica airguns, the new site can be found using this link.

I hope you will enjoy.

Thanks for the heads-up. Steve's reviews are well written and super thorough.

Haha, you have just bought one of the best (CP88) and are already looking for your next buy! Welcome...!

That CZ used to be closer to $100 not long ago. Thought about it for a while myself but didn't bother in the end as I thought it might be rather similar to the PX4, which was rather disappointing.

My son has a CP88 we got a good deal on used. It's like new, nicely made and mostly metal. I bought a bunch of bulk Crosman pointed pellets and CO2 for the kids to have fun plinking and learn marksmanship. It seems to throw wild fliers with these pellets , what pellets usually work well in the cp88?

Just got my own cp88 and created a thread on here for it. Pointed are not a good idea as they can scrape the innards in not in the rotary clip properly.
Best pellets are flat wadcutters, preferably RWS.

I just want to add another information to my original post.

I tried to find the new site by doing a search with some key word or even the name but it seems that it won't appear in the list. Using the link provided is the easiest way to find it but if you don't have it or don't remember what to type there is one string of word that will get you to the right place.

Doing a search with “unbiased information on replica” will find the site without problem.

Happy reading.

Thanks for the tip Plink-Panther. I had an RWS sampler, so i took some hobby and meisterkugln pellets and did some quick groups. Went from 4" (Crosman pointed)down to 1 1/2" 5 shot groups at 25 feet, shooting outdoors with the meisterkugln. 1 9/16" with the hobbies. Those probably aren't fantastic groups, but what a difference!!

Awesome! Glad you got RWS.

I made the mistake of getting pointed this past weekend and luckily a member on here told me not to use them as the points can scratch yer 88's innards...

So I swapped them with a friend and got Crosman wadcutters and again - really inferior to the RWS wadcutters... mind you, soon I will order a heavier RWS pellet option so I can play with the different behaviours (vs the lighter Hobby or meisterkugln) in my plinking range. :P

That will be the order I also buy my 3 extra rotary magazines
