    Bought this as a "Wife Trainer". The reviews were good and It is very close, in size,
    weight and appearance to my S&W 469. It's an accurate shooter right out of the box.

    Proper loading of the "Revolver cylinder" style magazine is a little tricky. The pellets
    have to be completely seated in the magazine, other wise their skirts will drag on the
    mechanism. I found a ball point pen and a hard surface to rest the magazine on worked
    great.:thumbup:

    It's a little pricy, but the quality is there and being able to practice my (Winter) marksmanship
    in the garage will pay for itself in the long run.

    Very nice. I've got a pistol that uses similar rotary cylinders for loading the pellets - yes, it's a bit of a pain, but it works well when it's properly loaded. Mine is a clone of a Beretta PX4 Storm. These do make great training pistols, especially with the blow back of the slide.

    etrain16,

    Aside from the look and feel, I was really impressed by the pistols accuracy. The only change i'm going to make is to replace the front sight blade with an orange fiber optic the same as my other handguns.

    That's a good idea, I'll have to see if I can do the same on my pistol.

    Some, but not all of the spec. sheets I've seen on the CP88 show that you can replace both of the sights.

    I have an e-mail into Umarex about how to remove the sights. That front blade looks like it is just pressed
    into place. There are a couple of fiber optic sights from Midway that look like they would fit.:thumbup:

    You should post some pics of it when you make the change!

    John at D&L Airguns says the barrel has to come out to remove the sight.

    Hopefully he will tell me how to do it. I would like to have an exploded view
    of the pistol to work from. Hate to Bugger it up.

    I'll post pictures when it's finished. I'll also post the exploded view, if I can
    find one.
