    Love my CP88.:p
    I'm looking for a barrel compensater Kit in "Blued" finish. Seems all I can
    find is "Nickel" finish.:(

    Never seen one in blue. I've had mine since 1997, complete with the surprisingly good Walther red dot sight.

    I use it for paper plate killing.

    Thanks tac,
    I remember seeing a "Blued" compensator kit in an ad a while back, but I forgot where.:(
    There are many ads for the complete pistol, shown with a blued compensator, but so far none for the kit alone.
    According to the testing I've seen, the barrel extension adds 100 fps to the muzzle velocity without effecting the inherent accuracy.:)

    Gee tac, I might need one. If I ever loose mine, my steak eating days are over.:D
    What range are you shooting paper plates at?
    Wife & I shoot the little metal air gun animals and paper in the garage at 7 meters, ( pellet & Air Soft pistols).
    Open the garage when it's warm and shoot 12 meters with the pump and CO2 rifles.:)

    I've heard some of the "this device will increase your velocity" hype but mostly it's been somebody trying to sell the Blue Pill! I've put a few rounds over a chronograph, both with and without compensators, yet I've never seen an increase in velocity. Would someone please tell me what I've been doing wrong?:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    KKG,
    The term,"Compensator" isn't quite correct in this case.o_O
    The barrel is replaced with one 2" longer. Thus the increase in velocity.:)

    I think tac is more Texan than Brit putting on those, "Bar-B-Q grips a? :p:p:D

    Now that would account for an increase. Nothing being equal, it might be an increase if there is any "Push" left but it could also account for a decrease if there isn't any "Push" left in the Propellant. Of course, the increase in barrel will also decrease the Concealment factor of the gun. Not many are concerned with hiding an air pistol but then who knows.

    tac is a whole 1/8th British. The rest is open to much conjecture, but you might look to the North of the North American continent.....;)

    OK tac, I'm not serious enough to do this..... Walther Air-Pistols.jpg

    So, I settled for using an Exacto saw to score the front sight Walther Air-Pistols Sight.jpg
    blade and finished off with a "Mouse Tail" file. The fiber optic bar is an extra from the Duck Buster kit I put on my MK1919.
    Once the groove was the right depth, I super glued the bar into place. The sight lights up like neon and at 25 feet the POI
    is smack on.:)

    or this -

    You'll note that neither of these two famous gentlemen made a career of pistol-shooting, in stead, they went into movies.....
