Customer Reviews for Umarex Walther CP88 CO2 NBB Pellet Gun

Brand: Umarex Canada

Type: Pellet air pistol
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Walther CP88 Blued/Matte Black
Materials: Mostly metal construction
Weight: 2.25 pounds
Barrel: 3.75 inches, metal rifled
Propulsion: CO2 x 1
Action: Semi auto, single and double action
Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellets

FPS: 393

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Walther CP88 is extremely nice in both single and double action mode with the single action having the lightest pull making it really easy to shoot on target with accuracy.

Accuracy: I shot this air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed very well getting about a two inch grouping close to the center of the target and staying in the two inch sweet spot even with 3 magazines or 24 rounds shot, I shot just a little bit high and to the right. The good news is the sights can be adjusted for windage if you are shooting a tad bit to the left or right. My Chrony testing with an eight shot averaged result was 360 fps using 6.9 grain RWS pellets.


Build Quality: This is an almost all metal air gun with great fit and finish and a nice dense 2.25 pound weight to it. It's made in Germany, so you know it's made right? The only plastic parts to speak of are the grips which are a hard matte black plastic which matches the rest of the airgun nicely. All the mechanical parts operation are as smooth as butter.

Realism: The Umarex Walther CP88 is a licensed replica of the real Walther P88 semi auto pistol. It looks very close to the real steel with the exception of the break in the slide where the rotary magazine is accessible and the extra "C" in the name.


  • Almost all metal construction - good weight and very solid feeling gun - 2.25 pounds!
  • German made!
  • Comes in a nice hard-shell case.
  • Very nice looking gun with in the Matte black - Blued finish.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • Double and Single Action trigger, very smooth and light.
  • Ambidextrous safety just like the real steel.
  • Very good accuracy, decent FPS for a pellet shooing pistol and good usage of CO2 (12 magazines).


  • More expensive than many entry level guns but much higher quality.
  • The sights are a bit hard to see when shooting on certain darker backgrounds.
  • Engraving on the right side of the gun is a bit loud on the black color.

Comments: I have to say I pretty much like everything about this airgun; Its size, its looks, it's German build and quality and the way it shoots. The Umarex Walther CP88 air pistol is one of those airguns I think everyone should save up for just to have the pleasure to own and shoot. It may not have blowback or a full size drop out magazine like some of the other newer styled flashier air pistols but I can tell you it is a real joy to shoot. When you hold it in your hand and point it at the target, all you can think about is how much fun you are having with this fine air gun.

Not happy with this gun

I have tried numerous kinds of pellets, Makes shapes and sizes. Its beyond me how it can be considered accurate. And it uses way too much co2. Power goes down real fast. Very disappointed for these reasons. A shame because it is well built and looks good

First Impression

Just got it a few days ago. Not sure when I will get a chance to shoot it. The quality is very good. It has a nice weight/balance to it. Yes the printing on the right side is a bit annoying but I plan to dull it a bit with dabs from a sharpy. I must remember to be careful to not to over due it and end up with smudges all over the place. The carrying case is decent. I should get cases for the rest of my BB pistols. Overall it was a great purchase. I hope to get out soon and test it out.

Looks great, feels great, shoots great.

With the metal build of the gun it not only looks and feels like the real thing it shoots with consistent accuracy. The only thing is as with all CO2 Cartridge pistols using mass produced pellets the fps is pretty variable. All in all its a great feeling gun that gives excellent performance.

Just holding it in your hand; you know you got something special.Almost an exact replica of the P88 too. It's such a slick piece, nearly all metal construction and as realistic as can be.Accuracy is fantastic and has been holding up well.Comes in a nice black case with two Umarex magazines.I've had mine for over a year and there's been almost no problem. One tiny thing though.. the screw under the muzzle fell out on me one time during a session, luckily was able to find it in the grass. Good to keep an eye on that or get some thread lock on it.All in all, beautiful!
