Crosman's 2240 CO2 pistol is available only in .22 caliber, but it's ideal for plinking. When you pick up this gun, you'll have a hard time putting it down. It's accurate and a pleasure to shoot.
The bolt-action reveals a sizeable loading trough, making it easier to load ammo. If you're a lefty, you'll appreciate that this gun is ambidextrous, sporting checkering and a thumbrest on both grip panels. You can use the gun with the open sights or get Crosman's 459MT base to mount a scope or red dot sight.
This is one of those guns that'll be around for many decades, as your entire family will enjoy shooting it.

Things I liked:Bought this to practice when I do not have time to go to the range. Best $60.00's I ever spent on practice and fun. Right out of the box shot straight and true. Only thing I did was add a drop of hot pink nail polish on front sight. Things I would have changed:Would like to see a more durable paint around trigger guard. Paint started flacking right away. What others should know:I am having great results using H&N Field Target Trophy and Sport pellets.
Can you leave this gun charged over a period of time? Or should the gas be used up right away

can shipping to Hong Kong?
Omar from USA asked:
Can you hunt rats with this pistol?
Alejo from Colombia:
YES definitely, it sure can kill small animals, it is the only one co2 powered pistol that shoots big pellets (5.5 mm) at 460 fps, thats quite fast for a co2 powered pistol, just use pointed pellets for greater accuracy and deeper penetration
Caleb from USA:
YES, you can hunt rats with this. It doesn't matter what the velocity is, it matters what the ft/lbs of energy the pellet has. I have a pistol like this and cleanly make kills out to 15 yards, 30 yards with stock and longer barrel added.
Ashley from USA:
No it does not have enough power.
Dan the Man from USA:
No, it's doesn't shoot fast enough to humanely take out pests.
