    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Improvement to the original 2240, Solid and rail top to mount new rear sight ect...

    Things I would have changed:

    Mine did not come with Allen/hex tools and with the many sets and throw aways I have not a single .050. have to buy a set with an .050, $11 no big deal but had everything ready to upgrade. I will update after the tools arrive.

    What others should know:

    Instructions could be a bit more geared for a newbie without a lot of prior knowledge of "how to". That said there are many instructional videos out there and be sure to use good lighting before you start.

    Things I liked:

    Very easy to install .

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish it came with a rear sight that could be screwed into the existing screw in the rear of the gun .

    Things I liked:

    Installed and installed a pic adaptor. Easy and fun. Pyramyd has the best price including ebay and Amazon.

    Things I would have changed:

    Thought hard on this one, No. All tools and parts in the bag. Install couldnt be much easier.

    What others should know:

    That little breach screw and the air valve are real punks. Used a piece of plastic bag to seal between the barrel and the ledge on the valve. Dont know if it was really needed, but...

    Things I liked:

    I ordered two of these, one for model 1377, and one for model 1322, nether has been delivered, much longer than the two weeks. This and having to pay shipping might cause me to reconsider ordering from Pyramid in future. If they don't come soon, I may have to ask for a refund?

    Things I would have changed:

    Free shipping

  • 5.0 5.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    The steel breech secures tightly to the pump pistol and provides a solid base to mount a scope.

    Things I would have changed:

    If the breech screw is in too deep, it will create a small well which can cause the pellets to get caught while loading. It's a common problem with easy solutions and work around which can be found online. I thought people should be aware of this potential problem when installing the steel breech yourself. I am deducting 2 star for this issue as it's a very common complaint and crosman have yet to address this issue. The steel breech should come stock with the pistol.

    What others should know:

    Be extra careful when screwing the small breech screw, it gets stripped rather easily.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Everything!!! This is my second one within a year. First one went on a 2240 with a longer barrel and now I just put one on a 2289G. They are easy to install and work so good with your favorite scope. Im 66 years old. You can go on line and see how to do almost anything. Good luck be safe and have fun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Its perfect! Because of my old age maybe a longer bolt would be nice, But it works perfect the way it is.

    What others should know:

    I love these Its made out of steel. Very nice product.

  • 3.0 3.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Very easy installation. With the addition of a scope I shoot 1 inch groups at 20 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    The counter bore where the breech screw goes, is bored too deep. This allows the pellet to drop down just enough to catch the sharp edge and prevent further advance. You can push down on the back of the pellet and then go forward again. So it works, just not nearly as smooth as the plastic one I removed. I got tired of this so I enacted a permanent fix by making a shim to go underneath the head of the screw. When the breech screw is torqued back into place, it raised the head of the screw enough so it works properly. Making the shim is not easy. I used thick fiber gasket material. I made my own hollow punch to get the correct diameter. I have a mini lathe so it was easy for me, but it might be done without, but would be very difficult. Another solution I read here was to use candle wax. I did this, and it did work, but for how long would be the question. I wish they would provide a shim if this is a known problem. But so many positive reviews makes me wonder if mine was od

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Steel instead of plastic, built in dovetail rail mount, increase in velocity. Includes needed wrenches to make the part swap.

    Things I would have changed:

    Only 1 little thing.. the instructions are ratty.. but it's easy to figure out and do. Still, for those not so inclined mechanically, they could be more clear.

    What others should know:

    When you do the swap, go ahead and go with a boss valve, stronger hammer spring and longer barrel! I did this today on my unfired 2240, and wow, what a difference over my buddies 2240. Waiting on my dovetail to picatiny rail to arrive, then the bushy tailed tree rat slaughter will begin!

    Things I liked:

    I ordered this item so I could put a red dot scope on my Dianna Chaser pistol, works great

    Things I would have changed:

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Relatively easy to install. Dove tail for red dot or scope. Much improved accuracy and velocity when installed on Crosman 2240.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    This upgrade is the single most important part to increase velocity in the Crosman 2240. In my gun, it boosted velocity by 60 FPS. Consider purchasing the 14.6 inch barrel too. Together I achieved a 90 FPS increase in velocity with much improved accuracy. This makes an average gun into a great gun !

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Kit really makes the 2240 a spectacular firearm. It really solidifies the barrel mounting and gives space for a red dot or other type of optic with dovetail capability. I put an inexpensive Daisy Red dot on the one I mounted for my dad and with his aging eyes he really likes it. 8)

    Things I would have changed:

    Would be nice if they added a spring powered detent on the handle position. If you tilt the gun, the weight of the handle can open the bolt on you.

    What others should know:

    Be careful with your gas seal. It's the hardest part of the installation, getting it in square and not hitting the edges of it.

    very well made nice dovetail made into bolt action

    Things I would have changed:

    instuctions were printed to small an blurred an a extra breech screw should have come with kit due to the orginal rounding out upon removing

    What others should know:

    well made just needs better instructions an extra allen head screw

    2.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    not a thing

    Things I would have changed:

    the finish on the one i received was horrible, the screw hole in the bolt area was chamfered too deep causing pellets to nose dive in it creating a jam, the bolt handle broke off trying to seat a pellet, so basically my backpacker is hosed

    What others should know:

    look it over carefully, i am sure mine was a fluke, but now i have a non working gun

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Everything from the lady I spoke to at Pyramid Air to the prompt shipment of this steel breach I find very professional. The product its self is very good and is doing just as advertised.

    Things I would have changed:

    Installation instructions were for me, a little hard to follow. Also not as detailed as I needed to do the job. The tiny breach seal screw would do better if it was to be in the form of a Philips screw. Respectfully....

    What others should know:

    Installation of the steel breach requires you to take your time. DO NOT torque down on the tiny breach seal screw or it will strip. Also take care to line up the hole in the bottom of the barrel with the air port on the top of the breach. These are errors made by me causing unnecessary grieve that was not the fault of the product.
