Description

Walther P88 for sale

The Walther P88 had been developed by Carl Walther Waffenfabrik, Germany, in 1988, as a high capacity, military and law enforcement pistol. The production of the P88 had been ceased in 1996, and it had been replaced in production by Walther P88 Compact, which is somewhat lighter and a little bit smaller, and have some techical diffrences from original P88. The Walther P88 Competition, with ajustable sights and other minor changes, also had been produced as a sporting firearm.

The P88 will be remembered as Walther’s last metal-framed service handgun. Walther pistols have been well-known since the 1920s, and they were the first to make a success of the double-action trigger system using a de-cocking device. Their first significant caliber locked-breech pistol was the Pistole 38, designed for the German Army first issued in 1939. This used a block locking system used by all Walther heavy-caliber pistols ever since and was adopted by Beretta and other manufacturers.

The standard Walther P88 was heavily criticised for being bulky, heavy and expensive; the Compact solved none of these issues. There were many complaints about the full-size model’s slide stop as well. It was thought to be hard to reach and manipulate, requiring the user to shift the gun in hand to operate. This was corrected with the P88 Compact at the expense of losing a very popular feature: its unique combination ambidextrous decocker and slide release. It was replaced with a CZ-style combination decocker and conventional slide stop/release. This allowed the pistol to function as a DAO (double action only) or conventional DA/SA
