    Built & made in the USA
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.

Click the AMMO link to stock up on pellets. Check the ACCESSORIES link for the 459 MT intermount, rings, scopes, red dots, targets, Pellgunoil (a MUST for CO2 guns) and safety glasses.

Things I liked: First of all, this gun is a lot of fun for everyone in my family (who have tried it so far) to shoot. Not been worried so far about pinhole accuracy as that's not why I bought it. Was looking for a fun shooter for plinking and does this ever fill the bill! Wish I had bought one years ago. Been airgunning with pistols and rifles for more decades than I want to admit. Always have liked pellet guns for target shooting and just fun and this is a great addition to our collection.

Things I would have changed: A positive stop for the probe when in the open position would have been nice. I keep wanting to point the gun downward to load a pellet but, of course, when you do, the probe slides forward. No doubt this is a hangover from my firing breakbarrel pistols for so many years but I would recommend than one change.

What others should know: If you don't have one, buy one! For the price you can't go wrong. Not too many things I know of give this much fun for your money.

Things I liked: Very accurate after you break it in. It shot kind of unpredictably for the first 50 shots, yet still within 1-2 inch groups at 30 feet. A couple of hits where I aimed and then a couple of wingers. After that it just started coming together into tighter groups. After about 200 shots, I was getting half inch groups at 30 feet. I am still breaking it in ( I really don't think an air pistol is broken in until after 400-500 rounds and at least 2 barrel cleanings and oilings, but that's just what I do) and it is very consistent and seems to be getting better. I'm getting to the point where I can't tell where one hole ends and another starts, but I still don't consider it a "one hole group". Using heavier pellets, 12-15 grains seems to be the best way to go.

Things I would have changed: I would like better sights. Black sights are a pain in low light conditions, and white dots or fiber optic sights would be a big improvement. Also the ability to change sights would be nice. On thing I've learned over the years is that with black sights, a bit of "White Out" or white model paint is a good thing to make your own white dot sights. But it's a pellet gun!

What others should know: I'm not doing competition or precision shots with it. Although it is capable of some fairly amazingly accurate shooting in the 10 to 20 yard range. It also depends upon the pellets you use. Spend the money for better pellets. The Crosman Premier pellets are not consistent and therefore not that reliable for repeatable accuracy. JSB Jumbo Exact Heavy Diabolo seem to work the best in my pistol. Very accurate and consistent, shot after shot. Pyramid Air sells them. Plan on getting 45- 50 shots per CO2 cylinder. You can't go wrong with this gun. I'm teaching my granddaughter to shoot pistol with it and she's doing really well. (she's 7) The trigger isn't bad at all, yet it could be a bit smoother. If you shoot indoors, it is a bit loud. especially if you add a drop of oil to every CO2 cylinder as recommended. For some reason the addition of the oil makes the first few shots pretty loud, but the idea of adding it to the head of the cylinder head is obvious to the maintenance of the gun.

  • Brett from USA asked:

    Why is this pistol only offered in .22? Any idea if Crosman will offer it in .177?

    • Hoosier Daddy from USA:

      Crosman already did. It was the 1740 and discontinued it back in 2001. https://support.crosman.com/hc/en-us/articles/203543000-1740-Owner-s-Manual-EVP-1999-2001-

  • Rick from USA asked:

    Does the 2240 need a signature when delivered?

    • Val from USA:

      No

  • MERLE from USA asked:

    This pellet gun is by Crosman. Why are other pellets being used? Is there something wrong with manufacture's pellet gun why they can't use their own pellets?

    • Val from USA:

      You can certainly use Crosman pellets. Crosman premiers are great!

    • Paul from USA:

      The manufacture pellets are not always the best choice.
