Trigger Action: The Umarex Walther CP88 features an exceptionally pleasant trigger pull in both its single and double-action modes. The single action mode, in particular, offers the lightest pull, greatly facilitating accurate targeting.

Shooting Precision: In my experience shooting this air gun at a target 20 feet away while standing, it impressively maintained a two-inch grouping near the target's center, consistently over three magazines, or 24 rounds, although my shots were slightly high and to the right. Fortunately, the sights are adjustable for windage to correct minor left or right deviations. My eight-shot average velocity, as per Chrony testing with 6.9-grain RWS pellets, was 360 fps.

Construction and Quality: The air gun is almost entirely made of metal, with excellent fit and finish, and weighs a solid 2.25 pounds. Its German manufacture assures high quality. The only plastic elements are the grips, which are a hard matte black and blend well with the rest of the airgun. All mechanical operations are incredibly smooth.

Authenticity: The Umarex Walther CP88 is an officially licensed replica of the Walther P88 semi-automatic pistol, closely resembling the original except for the rotary magazine slot in the slide and the additional 'C' in its model name.

Pros:

  • Predominantly metal construction with a substantial 2.25-pound weight.
  • Made in Germany, ensuring high quality.
  • Includes a sturdy hard-shell case.
  • Attractive matte black-blued finish.
  • Windage-adjustable rear sight.
  • Smooth, light triggers in both double and single-action modes.
  • True-to-original ambidextrous safety.
  • High accuracy, adequate FPS for a pellet shooting pistol, and efficient CO2 usage.

Cons:

  • Pricier than many beginner models but offers superior quality.
  • Sights can be difficult to see against dark backgrounds.
  • Engraved markings on the right side are somewhat prominent against the dark color.

Comments:

I am thoroughly pleased with this airgun in every aspect – its size, appearance, German craftsmanship, and performance. The Umarex Walther CP88 air pistol is a model that I believe everyone should consider saving for, simply for the joy of owning and using it. While it lacks some features like blowback or a full-size drop-out magazine found in more modern, flashy air pistols, its shooting experience is exceptionally enjoyable. Holding it and aiming at a target, it's all about the fun and satisfaction of using such a well-made air gun.
