Trigger Mechanics: The Umarex Walther CP88 Competition offers a superb trigger experience in both single and double-action modes. The single action is notably lighter and shorter, facilitating effortless and precise shooting.

Shooting Performance: Having previously used the standard CP88, I tested this competition version at a distance of 20 feet while standing. It impressively maintained a two-inch grouping near the center of the target, consistent over 24 shots from three magazines, though slightly high and to the right. Adjusting the windage on the sights can correct minor directional errors. In a Chrony test with 6.9-grain RWS pellets, it averaged 360 fps over eight shots. A comparative field test with the shorter-barreled version is planned to assess their performances in the same conditions.

Construction: Almost entirely metal, the CP88 Competition is solidly built, weighing 2.56 pounds, and showcases excellent craftsmanship – a hallmark of its German manufacturing. The grips are the sole plastic parts, a hard matte black that complements the airgun. The mechanics operate flawlessly.

Replica Authenticity: This air pistol is a licensed replica of the Walther P88 semi-auto pistol, closely resembling the original except for the slide break for magazine access and the added 'C' in its model name.


  • Robust all-metal construction with significant weight and a solid feel.
  • Crafted in Germany.
  • Officially licensed by Walther.
  • Includes a protective hard-shell case.
  • Elegant design with a matte black finish.
  • Windage-adjustable rear sight.
  • Smooth, light double, and single-action triggers.
  • Ambidextrous safety mirroring the real gun.
  • Comparable accuracy to the standard CP88, possibly enhanced fps due to the longer barrel.


  • Pricier than beginner models but offers superior quality.
  • Sights might be challenging to see against darker backgrounds without white dots.
  • The white warning engraving on the right side stands out against the dark finish.
  • Might be too weighty for some users.


I am highly impressed with almost every aspect of this airgun – its dimensions, appearance, German engineering, and performance. The Umarex Walther CP88 Competition air pistol is a model worth investing in for the sheer enjoyment of owning and shooting it. While it lacks modern features like blowback action or a full-size drop-out magazine found in flashier new air pistols, it's incredibly satisfying to use. Holding it and aiming at a target, you're immediately aware of the sheer fun of shooting this high-quality air gun, which promises years of enjoyment.
