If I were to order the Crosman 2240 with the steel breech kit and the LPA rear sight, will both of these be installed ready for use or will I have to remove the plastic breech and install the steel breech and LPA sight myself. The article does not mention what will be.
I am looking to customize the breech and co2 chamber to polished stainless. Does anyone know where I can purchase a kit or send the 2240 out to have it customized? Thanks!
Why is this pistol only offered in .22? Any idea if Crosman will offer it in .177?
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-
Does the 2240 need a signature when delivered?
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?
You can certainly use Crosman pellets. Crosman premiers are great!
The manufacture pellets are not always the best choice.
Can Pellgun oil be used when loading gun?
Yes, put a drop on the tip of the CO2 cartridge before putting it in. This will ensure that the gun will serve you a long time
Why would you try oiling your pistol while loading the pistol?????
The puncture screw, is it made of plastic or metal ? I ask this question before, but it was delete... What's up Pyramyd air..?
Looking forward to mod'ing this gun. I want to get more power and put in the multi-indexing breech. I would like to know which spring and transfer port are best? Not concerned about having more than 15-20 hard hitting shots ( high 500-600 FPS)
I would really love one of the same custom 2240s that paul capello has in this video. How do I get one?
Search the internet using google you'll a whole world of parts to mod. it .
Have you tried crosman.com it can be custom built?
how long will the co2 capsule last is the pistol is left unused?
Pell Gun oil can be used on the tip of the Co2 every time a new one is installed to keep the seals lubed.
I thought C02 airguns had to be stored with some pressure for the O-rings to stay seated
Not designed to store Co2 for long periods. Must be used.
do you ship to Canada ?and would i need a special license to own this ?
Yes; Pyramyd can ship this item up to Canada since it shoots under the 500 fps level which makes it legal to own and shoot in Canada.
I want to know which place has placed the CO2 capsule The screw and the end is for what exactly. thank you luc
Watch the video. It shows that off (the tube under the barrel is where the CO2 cartridge is stored). You can also see it in the closeup images.
I will like to order the 2240 with the steel breech update but I need to know if the breech comes as left hand too?
Evan some people are left handed.
why would you want a left handed pistol?
You could contact crosman directly but i don't believe it is offered left handed.
Does anyone make custom grip panels?
If you go to crosman.com custom shop they have them on there site.
Can anyone tell me how many pellets one can shot from this pistol with one CO2 cartridge ...???
40 on the dot with no loss of power, at least in cold weather. I wouldn't push more than 50 at 70 degrees F or warmer for true accuracy.
according to the specs - 60 shots
Can you leave this gun charged over a period of time? Or should the gas be used up right away
Wade CO2 can be left in the pistol ever if the manual said not to it's a lawyer thing.
Most Co2 air guns are OK to store with Co2 in them for extended periods of time as it keeps the internal seals under pressure and this is better for the air gun. This includes the 2240 - the warning is for legal purposes so as to make the 2240 "safer".
drain/remove the co2 after each daily use. It's in the user manual "DO NOT STORE WITH CO2 !!!"
can shipping to Hong Kong?
no, it's over 2J
Can you hunt rats with this pistol?
It shoots a .22 at less than 580 fps, therefor no. You will not penetrate the body cavity at a range over 7 ft. and the chance of a ricochet inside any kind of building within 18 feet, due to the low speed and the lack of blunt force, not to mention the size of the projectile is a 120% "squared" possibility.
yes and no at the same time sure you do have co2 power and I seen aegs take out mice but remember this though single shot bolt action you better be quick to reload if you want the rat to not suffer and also if you don't kill that rat it may attack you in spite of you shooting it be very careful id recommend a regular .177 18 shot pellet gun with the combo of redfire diamond tipped pellet then a full body cylindrical pellet with a tip non diaboloed
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
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.
No it does not have enough power.
No, it's doesn't shoot fast enough to humanely take out pests.
Is there a trigger upgrade for the crosman 2240
Pyramyd does not offer one.
Is there a way to lighten the trigger?
I think a lighter trigger could be dangerous, you could shoot it by accident with the lightest pressure on it, i think the trigger is just fine
There are many after market up grade features for this pistol if you look around the internet.
There are no adjustment screws for the 2240.
Will this put a coon humanely down at point blank range?
in otherwords yes you would kill the coon no it would not be humane because it will take a while for it to bleed out
There's a really good article in the current (volume 6) PyramydAir catalog, "Velocity vs.Mass" that discusses this common topic. Essentially, air guns, even 1200+ fps models, cannot generate sufficient velocity for the type of hydrostatic shock you see from centerfire rifle cartridges. With extremely accurate (and lucky) shots, you might get an instant kill, but generally animals that receive a fatal wound will take a while to expire from a pellet.
No it would not.
From around 15 yards, will this pistol kill a grey squirrel humanely?
yes it has the power to kill a grey squirrel no not from 15 yards I don't belive you would be able to aim that far without a scope and also I would say use a rifle because a pistol is never humane really when you think about it
Yes it might for sure, but i dont know why you people in the us wants to kill small animals, squirrels or birds, they are innocent animals, i couldnt do it..
No, it would not
Is the grip made of wood or synthetic?
They are synthetic.
Is this Made in USA?
The 2240 is BUILT in America. That means they assembled the gun parts in America but that some, many or all the parts are imported. How many of the parts are imported is not known.
Yes an american designer based out of Rochester NY.
how many meters it can shoot clearly with cheap pellets?
between 50 - 60 meters if you are a great shooter with high quality pointed pellets
Accuracy wise you're looking at about a 10 meter gun
How many good shots can be had say @68 degrees with one cart.
You're looking at approx. 60 good shots
Has anyone converted the 2244 to pcp??
I have seen a few. A quick google search should turn up some good information.
who makes the upgrade air valve for more power or is this something I can do on my own? Any leads on a supressor??
There are a lot of folks out there that make spare parts for them. I would recommend checking out the Aigun Artisan's website, they have many links to custom part makers.
Could I use this as a small game hunting pistol ?
Not for hunting!!!!! Recommended for plinking only, see my answer for rats.
This gun puts out around 6.5 ftlbs at the muzzle and that will drop quickly over short distances, within ten meters WELL PLACED head shots on small game would be ok, anything further out and it'd be risky, upgrade for more power to increase affective range. Remember that less then 10 ftlbs really isn't recommended, but can be done.
Only at a very short distances, if you are a good shot too. Read this article to learn more about hunting with airguns: Airgun Hunting
