I bought this on Gunbroker a couple weeks ago and picked it up last week. I finally got some decent lighting to take pics today. I figured a gun like this deserves some good quality pictures.
Anyway, the P88 Compact is not just a smaller version of the P88. Its a different gun. While the style is similar, the controls are considerably different and the gun feels quite a bit different in hand. In fact, the P88 compact was actually the P88's replacement when the original was discontinued in 1996. They were never really produced together.
