A new generation of CO2 airguns! The original Walther design as well as the outstanding workmanship are impressive. This 8-shot double and single action repeater represents a giant leap forward in CO2 pistol technology because it's both fast and easy to reload with the convenient 8-shot rotary magazines that can be preloaded until you're ready to shoot. Due to the modular system the pistol can be used for various shooting activities. It is a popular gun for beginners and training purposes.

Things I liked: The looks and the feel of the pistol are second to none. Shot count per CO2 cartridge, +- 50, is very good. Airgun pellet mags work very well. If you are selective with your choice it will even shoot RWS pointed pellets.
Things I would have changed: The trigger is probably the biggest disadvantage for accurate shot placement. Shot is fine out to 15-20 feet. At 30 feet and beyond POI really opens up. Front and rear sights should have white dots. Walter combo rail should be made of aluminum to match the rest of the pistol for a more stable platform to mount optics. Needs a second screw to secured to pistol. Not sure why Walter chose to use brass to secure CO2 cartridge. I would trade shot count for some more FPS.
What others should know: It's a pistol that I want to like but for the money there are better bangs for the bucks available. Example are the the Beeman P17 and Crosman 2240. These shoot so accurate that it becomes effortless. Good way to relax. Shooting the Walter CP88 is akin to shooting some of my springer refiles. Can be frustrating and challenging. Best grouping are with RWS pellets.
Things I liked: I like the looks and the feel of the pistol. Shot could of +- 50. It's a pistol I wanted to like but the accuracy left a lot to be desired compared to my Crosman 2240 and Beeman P17's. These two pistol brands have set a high standard given their low cost and accuracy.
Things I would have changed: Better QC from Walter and PA especially that I payed the 10 shot check before it was shipped. PA could have saved both of us some time and money had they gone over the pistol. Mounting option for optics are very limited. The rail that mounts on top on pistol is made of plastic, held on by only one screw. Sights should have white dots at the very least!
What others should know: This is my first Walter product and one has to wonder about their QC. My Crosman 2240 and two Beeman P17 were no where near the price point of the Walter. This is one time that one does not get what one pays for quality wise.The accuracy doesn't match the looks then it's all for show. Tried six brands of pellets with different weights. Shot placements left me wondering how and why all of them could be so wildly inaccurate.
Things I liked: I recently purchased the CP88 from Pyramyd Air. As always, Pyramyd shipped quickly and without any problems. I had the 10 for $10 "test firing" done. I find the 10 for $10 is a good way to be sure that there are no issues with a new gun. I only fired it a few times so far, but it seems to be very high quality, and very accurate. I also like the fact that the pistol uses metal, instead of plastic, magazines ones. Metal versions seem to hold the pellets in place much more securely.
Things I would have changed: I find that removing and replacing the grip, when inserting a CO2, to be a little awkward. It does not easily snap in when putting it back in place.

Is the "Nickel" finish coming back? What was wrong with that finish? They looked great!
That would be a question for Umarex
What are the best pellets (brand/shape) to use in this gun?
Typically wadcutters/flat nose pellets. I like RWS or H&N
The gun comes with two allen wrenches. One is for sight. What is the other one for?
