    Hello all,
    I own a Walther P88(The one with long barrel, not the compact version).I have never shot it and want to sell it(I want to buy a new rifle).I've received the gun from a cousin who shot only 200 rnds with it.
    Can you tell me more about this weapon and a give me a realitstic price for it?
    Is it a good handgun?

    Thanks in advance for the response!

    Check out Gun Broker, Guns America etc and see what they are going for. Seems like a nice gun that has a collectable market. You should do well.

    I looked on gunbroker and saw two, one with starting bid of $1400 and the other $1499 with no bids on either yet.

    This is what the 2014 edition of The Standard Catalog of Firearms says:

    NIB......$1700
    Exc......$1525
    V.G......$1275
    Good....$975
    Fair......$700
    Poor.....$400

    Good luck.

    NIB = New In Box = has not been shot since leaving the factory.

    You can ask, but ....

    I would set my sights on the excellent category, anything extra is lagniappe.
