Things I liked:

I have both the standard 2240 and the XL. I like the original , but the addition of the dovetail allowed me to eliminate some of the weight that came with the scope rail (no longer necessary) and the threaded muzzle was on everyone's wish list I know. I went one step further and tuned the trigger by doing what I did on my standard 2240: put polished brass washers, very thin, on each side of the trigger making it the smoothest trigger I have pulled on just about any gun, air or firearm. Not sure but, I believe it to be about 1 1/2 to 2lbs, and slicker than snot on a pencil. Also, pyramid and others class this gun as plinking/fun, but with the addition of the rifle stock, a UTG bug-buster scope and a power adjuster, I have taken, shot-for-shot as many squirrels as I have with my Air Force Condor. For the money this is the best .22 cal., not to mention the least expensive in this caliber, I think you will find. And then there are all the mods available. This gun is accurate.

Things I would have changed:

I like the grips, but they are still cheap looking plastic. However there is a plethora of available after market grips so....eehh.

What others should know:

I primarily shoot Ruger SUPERPOINTS or Crosman pointed pellets. My favorite being the Ruger's at about 17gn instead of the usual 14.3. They are inexpensive and available at Walmart. The Crosmans seem to be harder to find lately. And, my squirrel count now; at over 30 would attest to the accuracy of the gun, and this ammo combination. It's not just for plinking/fun anymore. Choose your pellets well, and good hunting!

Things I liked:

I liked everything I read in Crosman's description for the pistol. Too bad the one I received was NOT as described.

Things I would have changed:

See below.

What others should know:

I got this today. Several bad scratches on it, some were due to the barrel stabilizer between the air cartridge tube and the barrel not being set correctly and jammed backwards 1.5 inches before shipping. Both screws scratched up the barrel and housing. If you're going to ship the screws loose, at least back them out enough so they don't scratch up the gun! The thread protector at the end of the barrel had a small crack, too. Probably was dropped at the factory?? So I Gorrilla-glued it. Just a little frustrated with the condition of the gun they sent. If it's been dropped on the barrel end, is the barrel unaffected? Hope so. Not impressed with what they sent me. Got the old, black grips... I know the site says color may vary, but that's just an excuse for when they run out of the new, brown grips. My pmt was 100% perfect, so should the gun be.

    Things I liked:

    Crosman hit a home run with this one! Hidden Hidden Screw Steel Breech! Set up for optics! Threaded at the muzzle for “suppressor”! BAM! Great features, great price from Pyramyd! Get one! You won’t regret it!

    Things I would have changed:

    The brown plastic grips, the plastic side plate, the plastic safety. These are easily upgraded & the decision must have been made to keep the cost down so can’t really complain.

    What others should know:

    Tons of upgrades & custom parts are available to modify, upgrade, & personalize yours!

    Things I liked:

    I like everything about the crosman 2240xl. The price is very reasonable this is my third purchase of this co2 pistol. Everything thing I needed was on the pistol no need to get a 2240 and purchase more parts. I also purchased the Buck Rail poor man's folding stock. Put a scope and a five shot grav magazine. I am totally pleased with this pistol. I will be purchasing more for friends and family. Thank you very much

    Things I would have changed:

    I would not change anything

    What others should know:

    I will say get you a couple of these pistols. They are well worth the money.

    I purchased this along with the Crosman shoulder stock. Will be using this primarily indoors during the winter. The only downside is shooting it outside in 50 degree weather I am only getting 35 good shots per capsule. I guess this is expected. Mike

    Things I liked:

    This pistol has the Crosman steel breech as well as a muzzle adapter for less than converting your OEM 2240 yourself.

    Things I would have changed:

    It'd be awesome if it had a front sight installed, because I really like the LPA mim rear sight on my Crosman pistols.

    What others should know:

    The 2240 is the only co2 gun that I shoot regularly, because it's extremely accurate and hits very hard compared to other co2 pistols. I would not hesitate to take a squirrel with it at closer ranges out to 15 or maybe 20 yards with no upgrades. It's really nice to shoot after a very simple trigger tune.

    Things I liked:

    Metal breech, trigger, fits my hand, good balance, 50 strong shots per fill, threaded barrel, options galore, fair price.

    Things I would have changed:

    Enlarge the cocking ball, maybe make it a bit longer and more ergonomic.

    What others should know:

    It’s a true classic. 22 caliber, hits hard, very accurate even for an old guy like me. The trigger is firm but smooth, about 4 pounds. I also have an upgraded 2240 with a much lighter pull. Both are excellent. Save your money for a red dot, learn to love the factory set. I use a variety of pellets. All weights work well, maybe I give the edge to the heavier ones. I drilled a squirrel at 30 feet. It dropped like a stone. I’d suggest buying this XL from Pyramyd. Good company, good support when you need it.

    Things I liked:

    I like pretty much everything, especially the threaded barrel. With the right suppressor, this pistol is quiet. It's accurate using a red dot and the price is great.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    If you are stuck with back yard practice like I am then a suppressor is a must.

    Things I liked:

    It hits really hard, and it's super accurate. It gets close to 50 really good shots, and it isn't pellet picky. It has a really low extreme spread with good pellets. Mine likes a really heavy pellet, like a 21 g H@N Target Trophy. This gun is impressive.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add the LPA rear sight and an adjustable, threaded, front sight on the muzzle adapter.

    What others should know:

    It's loud, so get a silencer from Buck Rail. Use a sturdy back stop. Get lots of ammo and co2. This gun is awesome. I've never been a fan of co2, but this gun has changed my opinion. If you're on the fence about it, buy it. You can't lose.

    Things I liked:

    Well made. Powerful enough. Great accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    The 2240XL should come as a kit. A stock would help stability. A suppressor because it’s a little loud, because of its power. Also a red dot or a scope because there no way to aim it on the XL model. I put a red dot on it and it is more than enough to make it super accurate.

    What others should know:

    I have a few different Crosmans and I love them all. Well built, very accurate and very affordable.

    Extremely accurate for a non competitive pistol. Very solid feel, almost like a Ruger 22 pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    The manufacturer should provide open sights on the pistol.

    What others should know:

    You will have to purchase some sighting device. I found a red dot works great.

    Things I liked:

    This pistol is so much fun. If you want add a scope/red dot/laser to your pistol you want the XL version of the 2240 with it's steel breech and 11mm dovetail mount. I've had lots of fun customizing it and there are soooo many options for this pistol. It's been around since 1956 and has been continually improved. It's crazy accurate with my red dot scope and laser on it. Pyramid air is where to buy it too. It came fast and at a really good price. I couldn't be happier.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    This doesn't come with an iron rear notch sight or front sight. If you want to go iron sights, there are plenty of options to add them to this great pistol. If you think you will never want to put on a Red Dot or other scope sight, then just buy the standard 2240 non XL here on Pyramyd Air. It has a decent iron sight from the box and is cheaper. You would think because of the price this is a toy, I assure you it has some heft to it and does not feel like some of the cheap air pistols out there.

    Great value for your dollar, stylish, feels good in the hand, and the XL has a steel receiver and threaded barrel.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much, perhaps a nicer trigger but at this price point it’s not bad and can be easily modified.

    What others should know:

    It’s quite accurate, a little bit on the loud side but easily resolved with the threaded barrel.

    What others should know:

    great pistol, one inch groups with cheap dot sight at 10 yds with crosman hp pellets, these are fine for this pistol- will save high end pellets for my rifles, painted grips with bed liner and they look and feel perfect give it a try, after coating with a brush just lightly slap grips with side of brush for great finish. good power, goes through both sides of tin soup can and dents a third, not bad for co2, have 10.1 inch barrel and dot sight with more mods coming to increase power. beware of breech screw, its under bolt probe and tough to remove/install had to figure it out and needed to remove bolt handle to push probe forward to get at screw. all vids ive seen its in front of bolt but not mine, enjoy this pistol-been around a long time for a reason great time
