Things I liked: I got one of these a few years back. I eventually upgraded the bolt action and scoped the thing out. It's been a rather nice rifle other than the fact piercing the co2 cartrige is a bit rough on arthritic fingers. Today I got a benjamin Discovery and was looking at it thinking the thing looked very familiar. I checked it out and realized the discovery is simply a pcp version of this gun on steroids. I checked carefully and other than a massive air chamber, higher fps, and improved sights, the 2260 is a perfect indoor trainer for the discovery so the neighbors won't complain about the noise. I have to give this a high rating because I already decided it's brother was so great.
Things I would have changed: Well, the design is an older one. I might upgrade the stock with a monte carlo like the Marauder. It should fit. Perhaps a custom barrel bracket so it can mount a bipod...trick it out a bit. Maybe add sling studs. It might become a bit more attractive with a few tweaks to the design, more eye appeal never hurts anything.
What others should know: Nice design for the price. Nice trainer if you don't want the neighbors complaining about the noise a discovery makes. I wouldn't take it hunting though. It doesn't have the guts for the job.
Things I liked: Crosman has perfected CO2 usage to the extent that they are extremely reliable and affordable by most of us. This rifle has a lot of the features of rifles that are a good deal more expensive. It may not have a lot of fancy do-dads on it, but it will perform right up with the best of'em. It is light, well made, and with the right pellet, very accurate. For the low price of around $85.00 You just can't go wrong. It's a great beginners rifle for the youngster who is just starting out in the shooting sports. It's easy to use, and watch their face when they start punching holes in the bullseye....In my opinion It's a great value for the price.
Things I would have changed: There are some changes that could be made such as a better rear sight, and a steel breech, but then this would increase the cost of the rifle. I do think that Crosman could figure out a better way to mount a scope without increasing the cost of the rifle more than a dollar or two, which I'm sure no would mind paying...
What others should know: I consider that the sights that come on it to be good enough for field use, but if you want extreme accuracy you will need to replace the plastic breech with a steel breech so you can solidly mount a good scope. I have choosen to leave mine as is and just use it to the best of my ability. It will take blue jays out to 35-40 yards with no problem at all. I don't condone shooting birds unless they are pests. Try different pellet brands for consistant accuracy and stick with them. After much trial and error I find that the Crosman competition wadcutter in the 1250 "milk carton" bulk pack work the best in my rifle. And they are inexpensive. Since no two rifles are exactly the same another brand may work better in your rifle. Try several brands until you find the winner...You won't be dissapointed.
Things I liked: light weight for long hikes, very quiet, very very accurate. sighted in at 10yds and the cross hairs hit the same out to 30 then at 40 yds i had to aim one mil high and at 50 yds 2 mil high. at 50 yds this gun as no accuracy issues and with the right pellets could probably take out squirrel eay. i heard alot of bad about the trigger but i actually like it. i planned on changing it but after using it im keeping it.
Things I would have changed: rather have a synthetic stock. opened the box looked at the gun and it has marks on it. im not going to worry much and complain cause it doesnt effect performance and the guns pretty ugly to begin with.
What others should know: like all the other 22xx guns theres a world of mods out there. also buy a steel breech if you plan to put a scope on this gun cause the crossman barrell mounts dont work at all. the scope moves all over the place and the screw strip out with little effort. over all the gun is amazing for the price you pay. the accuracy and silence of it are awsome. really likes jsb exacts and crosman hallows
I have a Crosman 2260 that won't hold air. I put in a new cartridge and pierce and hear air come out and receiver gets cold. How can I fix or get it repaired.
There is a one year warranty from Crosman. I would suggest starting there even if you are outside that time frame: 800-724-7486
