Unlike the previous poster, I haven’t had any screws loosen, even after many thousands of shots. Regardless, a dab of medium-grip Locktite on any offending screw will end its backing out, yet still allow for removal if necessary.

The pistol works as intended, is plenty accurate for plinking and informal target shooting, and is easy to upgrade with a steel breech, better grips, and an optical sight if you should choose. These add ons will further improve handling and accuracy, but aren’t essential.

It’s difficult to think of another product, at the 2240’s price point, that provides as much hassle-free enjoyment.

I’ve had both the custom models and the standard one along with homemade variations in between.

Decent accuracy and build although you’d better have a screwdriver handy to tighten things up (it doesn’t have recoil so I don’t know why it requires such tightening, but it does).

Keep the co2 opening cap well oiled or else it will seize without warning!

Plastic and pot metal that works!

I think Crosman is figuratively, shooting themselves in the foot, with such a nice .22 for such a low price.

I have three variations of this gun and have spent no money on some and a lot of money on others the choice is yours. They are all fun and can be made very accurate.

This review is for the Crosman custom shop version of the 2240, listed as the model 2300. This one is set up with the long steel receiver, 7.5″ barrel, trigger shoe, muzzel brake, Crosman red dot sight, and wood grips. Came fully assembled except for the sight, which was a snap to install on the grooved receiver. Took just a few minutes to get sight zeroed at 10 yards in my basement, using maybe 15-20 pellets in the process. Using four different brands of .22 pellets, ranging in actual weights from 13.6 to 14.3 grains, mine shot best with 14.3 gr. Crosman Premier hollow points, followed closely by the 13.8 gr. Gamo Match wadcutters. Even with the trigger being a little heavy and having some creep, the comfortable, wide trigger shoe allowed very accurate shooting to result. I’m well pleased with this pistol’s ability to place 6 out of 6 shots in, or touching, a circle the size of a dime at 10 yards, from a supported rest. For $150 (fifty dollars of which were for the custom wood grips) I’m very happy with this attractive pistol, which actually looks like it should cost a lot more. Oh, and in my cool basement, at 58-60 degrees, this pistol delivers 45 good shots before the power drops off enough to notice, then tails-off and dies on around the fiftieth shot.

Basic Facts (as provided by Crosman)

Mechanism: Bolt Action Single Shot pellet

Power Source: CO2

Ammo: Pellets

Caliber: .22

Velocity: (in fps) 460

Weight: 29 oz

Overall Length (inches): 11.13

Barrel Length (inches): 7.25

Barrel Material: Rifled Steel

Sights Front: Fixed; Rear: Peep or Open Fully Adjustable for windage and elevation

An accurate and powerful co2 gun. I like the metal frame over the plastic most pellet guns have. I also prefer the style of this gun, not looking like a “real” gun, but with a unique look all it’s own. I added the optional steel breach , (from crosman ),and improved shot placement consistancy, as well as allowing use of a red dot sight. The only drawback is the absence of a magazine, requiring loading each pellet individually.

I have owed a 2240 for 6 years now and have found it to be reliable and very accurate for a gun in this price range. I chronograghed the velocity at betwen 450 and 480 fps depending on pellet mass,exellent for this price range.I am not happy with the plastic breech and cheap grips which are too small without enough thumb support.Crosman needs to offer an inexpensive right or left hand set of grips with a better feel.The gun has a nice balance otherwise.By simply stretching the hammer spring more power is possible with fewer shots per cylinder, but what a power house for 50.00!

I will have to say this is the first modern American pellet pistol I have ever owned, and never have I owned a pellet pistol with a plastic breech, at first sight the gun looks good but the feel is a bit sour, the trigger is small and way to thin; and the grips don’t fit my hand, the plastic breech kind of threw me for a loop? It has plastic sights and pot metal trigger housing and barrel band. The accuracy is that of any pistol with basic Iron sights (plastic) no place to mount a scope or after market sights and a bit rough to cock, these guns sell for under 50.00 to over 70.00, My thought is they should sell for no more then 35.00. Crosman Manufactures and sells a metal breech this makes me think why even sell the gun with a plastic breech. As a manufacture once told me we are looking for ways to save money, this is the reason the 2240 is the first modern American pellet pistol I have ever owned, I’m looking for ways to save money to buy a quality European pistol!! They charge more but you get more way more. The good thing about the 2240 is there are a lot of modifications that can be done to make this a great pistol but here is the quagmire after all the modes you can have 250.00 to 300.00 and more in to the 2240. Bottom line the 2240 is a great little inexpensive 22 cal pellet pistol but if your looking for more then plastic and pot metal this gun is not for you
