By Felix from USA on 2021-07-05 06:48:19

Things I liked:

Looks and feel in the hands of the airgun.

Things I would have changed:

Poor power output of the gun. At 9 yards pellets bounce off cardboard target. Inaccurate shots, hits all over the target. Would not have purchased had I known of the lack of "punch power".

What others should know:

Invest in a more powerful airgun.

    Things I liked:

    Cheaper than buying a 2240 and a steel breech separately plus you get the threaded barrell moderator adapter as a bonus!

    Things I would have changed:

    I build these things up to get upward of 15 FPE and technically speaking, I change the barrels, valves, transfer ports, springs, hammers, bolt probes and add scopes, stocks silencers, red dots, bipods etc. But you dont have to change anything on the stock pistol for it to be great!.

    What others should know:

    Yes, you can modify them more than any other air pistol and they can be made for hunting, plinking, target practice or anything else that you can do with a good quality air pistol.

    Things I liked:

    I am very pleased with my 2240xl. High quality, well made, looks good. Very accurate. It would be hard to buy a better quality and accurate gun for less money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Just a little lighter tiger pull.

    Things I liked:

    A great, great little pistol, especially for the money it costs! I can not drive nails with it, but at my age, and at 30 yards, I can put ten rounds in a fifty cent piece.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldn't have minded seeing sights included. I had a front sight left over, but buying a LMA rear sight was not only a pain, but expensive.

    Things I liked:

    Solidly built pistol

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be great if Crosman offered some packages that included some needed accessories, like a dot sight or an iron sight. You really can't use the pistol out of the box.

    What others should know:

    If you're new to air guns and don't know where to start, THIS one is for you. You will need to purchase a sight of some sort (I got a steel sight kit from Additiv), but with that you're in fantastic shape. I much prefer this to my replica pistols, Crosman Bushmaster and even my Diana Model 34break barrel. It's just extremely satisfying to shoot. I know that Crosman makes a couple of target pistols, but I can't imagine that they could be more accurate than this. If you want to customize the pistol further, there are many third-party options available. For $99 you will not regret it,

    Things I liked:

    Just like my 2240 except for steel breach, threaded barrel, and brown grips. I can not judge accuracy yet because I am still deciding on type of aiming device I wish to use. However I am already modifying into a carbine, and have added an adjustable shoulder stock. What can I say Crosman 2240 has always been the best, And the XL even better.

    Things I would have changed:

    You may like the brown grips on black. I did not. I put the black grips from my old 2240 on the XL. Perfect fit, now all black, and goes with the adjustable shoulder stock I added.

    What others should know:

    If your going to buy the 2240 for customizing. Get the XL version, it will save you time, and money right from the start.

    Things I liked:

    PFA power, feel, accuracy great Ability to get parts and make modifications Self puncture co2 by pulling the trigger first before shooting

    Things I would have changed:

    Plastic grips with wooden ones Sure likes to use a lot of CO2 to get that power but feels and sounds more like a 22 long when shooting

    What others should know:

    Recommend spending extra for the all metal breech upgrade XL model to mount a dove mount sight It's a single shot must load after each shot but loads super easy, pellets just fall in perfectly every time.

    Things I liked:

    GREAT VALUE AND HAS VERY CONSISTANT VELOCITY FOR THE FIRST 25 SHOTS

    Things I would have changed:

    The breach screw is in a inconvenient place. But this only applies if you plan to take your pistol apart for whatever reason.

    What others should know:

    Everyone advertises this as a 60 shot air pistol with 460 feet per second. With a crosman 14.3 grain pellet , I get a maximum of 420 fps. I think if it were advertised as 420 fps with a 14.3 g pellet, this would be much more informative. The biggest exaggeration is the 60 shot per Co2 cartridge. On my 40th shot, I was down to 210 fps. That means that any shot after that may get stuck in the barrel. BUT this is a great pistol and I would buy it again.

    Things I liked:

    Everything. Came with old style black grip instead of new brown grip that was advertised. Brown would be nice but the old grip is 100 times better than the new style grip so that was like an added bonus.

    Things I would have changed:

    Packaging left a lot to be desired but no harm to the gun so that was a non issue.

    What others should know:

    If youre considering this gun, buy it.

    Things I liked:

    I wanted a pistol I could customize that would have good performance out of the box, but with easy ability to upgrade. The 2240XL included the steel breech that was necessary for where I wanted to take it, and ended up with less cost than buying a standard 2240 and then adding the steel afterwards. Customization options, both third party and made at home, were important considerations. The 2240 line has a wealth of information available to do anything you want with it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Since I wanted to customize everything, there really isn't anything I'd change about the base model. Will I be changing things? Absolutely! I only shot 30 pellets through the stock setup before I changed the barrel to the 14.6" (PY-A-6844) and got a good boost to the speed. Then I did transfer port mods, and trigger adjustments, and added a GravMag. Then I did some CAD work to make custom wood grips. But as for the base model - as it is, it's a perfect starting point. Excellent price for what you get.

    What others should know:

    My comments are based on my desire to modify the heck out of the base model. It's now shooting a consistent 30 shots in the 550 fps range (14.3 Crosman pellets) - which is coincidentally what my brand new Sheridan 2260MB shoots in its stock configuration. The Sheridan came because the 2240XL was so outstanding to work on. I can't wait to see what I can do with that one!

    Things I liked:

    The 2240XL is a nice CO2 pistol. The bolt lever action is very smooth and consistent. It is relatively accurate but not even close to the Ataman AP16 which is the only other air pistol I own but it shoots well out 25 yards. Do not expect anything past 30 yards though. I like that you do not need to purchase an adapter for a silencer, the barrel end allows you to screw on any silencer of choice.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better grips as it is just cheap plastic.

    What others should know:

    I own the Ataman AP16 which is an exceptional air pistol but when you do not want to fill up the gun with air from a pump, this is a good option. I am getting around forty shots from each CO2 cartridge. The accuracy is okay up to twenty five yards and after adding a silencer it is very quiet. Even without the silencer it is not overly loud but it looks way cool with the silencer.

    Things I liked:

    Nicely weighted & robust little pistol! Shot excellent right out of the box with the added aim point sight and Donny fl moderator. I bench zeroed it at 33 feet. And with those Crosman Premier 14.4 grain copper plated pellets? I could shoot a 3/8" group! Thats no B.S. either!

    Things I would have changed:

    For that price? Not a Darn thing! I should purchase another one.

    What others should know:

    If your grips move a bit? Put a dab of Silicone sealer in those index holes, a dust of talcum on the studs, lightly snug the grips back on, and let it sit and cure.

    Things I liked:

    Performs as advertised. Needs a moderator to be really backyard or garage friendly.

    Things I would have changed:

    Needs a front sight just in case your optic fails.

    What others should know:

    A great deal of co2 is wasted with the short barrel. A weaker hammer spring and a power adjuster would make this gun much more efficient.

    Things I liked:

    Steel breech of course, rifled and threaded steel barrel. As a plinker i love the accuracy and punch of this pistol. Trigger pull not bad at all. Has a good grip. Co2 cartridges load easy. Bolt action is good. Well made pistol. I did call call PA for assistance in setting up my kit, got the 20 for $20.00 also and my gun passed with flying colors. Thanks PA for your help.

    Things I would have changed:

    A backpack kit with all the goodies to get the party rolling would be great.

    What others should know:

    This pistol does bark like a Rottweiler, so a moderator maybe needed for backyard fun. Choose an optic wisely as can make the pistol heavy. You will not regret purchase, i think you will enjoy this pistol as much as i do, and for years to come.
