The Ford of Air guns!
September 18, 2014
The 2240 is the most affordable; highly modifiable air gun out there today. Right out of the box it is a very accurate; powerful air pistol. With the addition of a steel breech; a longer barrel; and some simple internal mods - it can be a powerful Co2 air gun that can easily take small game. You won't regret buying this great Crosman classic!
Pros:
Affordable Accurate Highly modifiable
Cons:
Trigger needs some work.

Great little shooter
August 25, 2014
Good weight and balance. Had to adjust the sights out of the box but otherwise it is a great target shooter. The .22 caliber pellets pack plenty of punch to take out small pests. Effective range is 13 to 15 meters.

Better than expected
August 3, 2014
There are so many forum post and you tube videos about improving this gun that I wasn't expecting very good performance right out of the box (make that plastic package). Good accuracy - quarter size groups at 10 yards and able to consistently hit an empty pellet tin lid at 20 yards. At 20 yards with out a scope I really can't see good enough to hit anything smaller but I think the gun is capable. I bought the Discovery pellets assortment T Walmart (4 different pellets) and the gun shoots all four pretty well but I think the hollow points did the best. The gun is a little loud in my opinion for backyard shooting as the houses in our neighborhood are very close.
Pros:
fun to shoot low cost accurate easy and cheap to customize
Cons:
a little loud if your neighbors are close.

Great Air Pistol
July 31, 2014
I was pleasantly surprised with this air pistol. It feels good to hold, was extremely accurate right out of the package, and has great addons. Would recommend this air gun to anyone looking for a short range pistol to plink, take care of small varmints, and all round shooting fun. In .22 caliber, you might find it a bit loud.
Pros:
Accurate. Very comfortable, especially with smaller hands. Great price!
Cons:
A bit loud in .22 caliber

Nice Piece
May 15, 2014
Of course I had to replace the plastic breech with the steel one. That's part of being a pellet gun snob. I don't notice any improvement in accuracy or anything, just makes it a higher quality item. I purchased two of these at the same time, one to shoot and another to be a safe queen. I enjoy having them as part of my pellet gun collection and find them of highest quality and performance. I only get about 40 shots per Co2 unit, but that's fine with me. Nice feel in my hand and fun, fun, fun to shoot for an old character like me.
Pros:
just high quality that should provide years of shooting, which I do a lot of.
Cons:
All is good.

Fantastic first time .22 pellet pistol.
March 3, 2013
Bought this two weeks ago and it has been a blast to use. The accuracy of this is top notch with about a 1/2" to 3/4" grouping. I have been using it at about a 13'-0" range and even fired it at about 27'-0" and still do not notice any difference in accuracy. Where I shoot, I can get roughly 50 /- pellets per Co2 cartridge (area is about 55 degrees in temp. /-). Trigger pull seems to be a little heavy but with some range time can get use to. Easy to install Co2 cartridge with no need for a screw driver to tighten cartridge cap. Also has the right amount of recoil for a beginner. I highly recommend this pellet pistol for the novice or experienced user do to upgrade capability.
Pros:
Accuracy Ease of use Can be used indoors and outdoors Economical to use Comfortable grip Recoil is minimal
Cons:
Little noisy Trigger pull tad heavy (requires a bit of force) Can be to addicting to use - lots of fun

Sweet shooter out of the box
February 8, 2013
Just got mine today. I swapped out the plastic breech and added Crosman's steel breech and a Leapers red/green dot scope. I used Benjamin Discovery 14.3 grain pellets and got good tight 5" shot groups at 25 ft handheld. The trigger is tight, but very little creep. I soon learned where it broke. You can feel and hear the spring just at the break point, which was a bit distracting. I will be remedying that with some aftermarket equipment soon. Another part I will be replacing, is the grips. They do not fit my hand well, and are not very comfortable. Replacing the breech was pretty simple, even for a mechanical klutz like me. I love this gun already and it is fun to shoot. I can't wait to trick this pony up! If you are thinking of getting one, then stop wasting time reading this and go get one!
Pros:
Rugged, simple to work on, and accurate. Tons of aftermarket parts.
Cons:
Trigger a bit tight, stock grips not comfortable.

An accurate value in a .22 CO2 Pistol
January 8, 2013
I used the pistol out of the box and found it accurate and powerful. The sights while "Ok" can be enhanced by adding a fluorescent Red tip to the front sight and fluorescent green tips to the rear sights. For an old guy like me going on 70, I found this improved my acquiring a target and the accuracy of my shots. With the mods, I was able to place 6 of 6 shots into a Bone Collector Pellet Trap 5.5 in. sq. from a distance of 15 yards. One bullseye in the 10 ring, 2 in the 7 ring, 1 in the 6 ring, and 2 in the 4 ring of the target. The gun felt comfortable in my hand (a little tight) and I used a weaver stance while shooting.
Pros:
Accurate and inexpensive target practice.
Cons:
Sights need improvement and the grips are on the small side.

This air pistol is one of the best guns to own. It is a great starter gun out of the package and has so many after market parts available that you can turn it into almost any gun you want. Getting started down that road can end up costly, but a ton of fun.
Pros:

Cons:

Real nice gun
February 26, 2012
I purchased the 2240 mainly because I ordered a custom one and wanted to see the difference. With stock sights the gun will shoot as well as you can see. I have a 15 yard range in my basement and 90% of shots fall into 8 ring or closer not bad! Power seems real good and steady for at least 60-70 shots then falls off. No co2 leaks just remember to put a drop of oil on the tip of cartridge prior to installing. Real fun gun.
Pros:
Easy to shoot, accuracy.
Cons:
None

Great Bargain
January 12, 2012
Gun arrived today. Solid feel and weight. No time to really sight it in. I ordered it to help me eliminate the roof rats destroying the vine structure on my house. Loaded gas cylinder and dry fired with no pellet. Load gas sound, but that made me pretty sure this guy could do the job. Went outside, loaded pellet, put flashlight on vine. Rat made the mistake of standing still and not moving. Got Gamo .22 pellet in return. Gun seems like it will be a solid addition to garden shed for long time.

Solid, well-made pistol. Accurate!

Great Satisfaction!!!
October 31, 2010
I last commented on this GREAT air pistol on August 1st.. I spent a few days playing with it, tweaking it throughout the last months, and found a very accurate, enjoyable air gun. I replaced nothing so far, and the gun functioned flawlessly on three different pellets, yielding one inch groups at 10 meters. The gun's comfortable grip with a fully adjustable rear sight gives plenty of flexibility for different sight pictures. Very usable sights. 40-50 solid shots per CO2 cartridge. Mine shot Crosman Premier Hollow points, Crosman Pointed Hunter, and Daisy Max Speed Wadcutter in 1-2 inch groups from 8-12 meters. If you are truly interested in a quality consumer level CO2 pellet air pistol in .22 to learn how to shoot, this is it. Buy a few!!! One for parts you know!

2240/1740
September 27, 2010
I have owned both the .177 caliber and .22 caliber version of this pistol for around 6 years, I have killed jack rabbits, prairie dogs, squirrels, numerous birds, skunks, crows, and even opossums with this pistol, and I used the .177 caliber version as a 10 meter competition pistol, and placed in the top 5 four years in a row in the Wyoming 4-h shooting sports competition. This gun is accurate and dependable. keep all the screws tight, maybe use some lok tight, and its good. And also, if your not competent enough to figure out how to adjust the sight on this pistol, YOU SHOULDN'T BE HANDLING ANYTHING THAT FIRES A PROJECTILE. Its simple, two screws, one windage, one elevation. Loosen them, move the sight, and tighten it. I chronographed the .22 cal, at a little over 7,000 ft elevation mine shot 421 fps to 433 fps (12 fps variation) with 10 shots on a fresh cartridge and 14.3 grain pellets. Great pistol.

2240, Out of the box mind you.
August 1, 2010
Ok. The very first shot @ 6 ft. w/Crosman pointed field hunting pellet, ZERO. At 12 ft, way off to the left and high. At 36 ft, (12 yds.) no group to be seen. Conclusion; gun shook out of calibration. Took a good look at it and noticed EVERYTHING was not balanced. Barrel band was tightned so as to promote stress on barrel, front sight a tad off center; trigger and grip frame are not shaped correctly. OK..fine, now what?!?!?! Send it back? Naaa. The gun grouped after settling down despite these issues. Rear sight cannot accomodate adjusted point of aim. So....I have an adventure ahead with this. Power is great. Trigger is Great. Rear sight to be determined if it is useful. I'm a huge fan of Crosman, and i hope I can use my limited talent to make this gun a winner. We'll see in round two..I will post....

April 21, 2010
Let me first say that the guys at Airgun Depot Rock ! They really know how to take care of their customers, and have certainly earned my loyalty. After researching the 22XX series on line, I knew I had to have one, and it's everything I expected. Trigger needed a little tuning, but is still an excellent gun for the price.Crosman hit a home run with this series. Can't wait to up-grade it with steel breech and better rear sight ( tons of hop-up parts and accessories on-line). I allready got one of my friends interested and after shooting it, he wants one too, so I'll be ordering another 2240 for him along with a 2260 for myself.

Needs Better Balance
January 10, 2010
Bought this one because of the similarity between it and my old Ruger MK1. Found that there's a serious difference in balance. This one feels barrel heavy because the charge goes in below the barrel whereas the Rugar was inside the handle. Threw my marksmanship all out.

The gun is very accurate for outdoor plinking. The only complaints we have are the plastic grips and the amount of effort it takes to pull the trigger. Other than that, it kicks like a mule and we (father and son) are having a great time.... although it's a bit heavy for my 8 year old.

It's rude, crude and LOUD, but it hits like a sledgehammer and very accurate. If you're older, it's really hard to see the front sight. If you're left handed, I don't think the safety and grips are set up well. Both of these apply to me, but I still really like this gun, and I will probably get another one and start in on the customizations.

May 31, 2008
I JUST RECEIVED MY 2240 AND AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE PERFORMANCE AND ACCURACY. I QUICKLY PUT IT TO THE TEST AGAINST MY .177 BEEMAN P3 AND THE VELOCITIES BEING EQUAL... THIS BABY PENETRATED 250 PAGES OF A PHONE BOOK AGAINST 67 PAGES FROM THE BEEMAN P3. IF YOU WANT TO POP VARMITS THIS BABY WILL DO IT. HOWEVER, THE DOWN SIDE, IT IS VERY LOUD IN COMPARISON TO THE P3 AND THE TRIGGER PULL REQUIRED 2 MEN AND A SMALL BOY! THE TRIGGER MUST BE PART OF THE SAFETY SYSTEM :-) IF IT IS ACCURACY AND POWER YOU WANT FOR LOW $$$s, THIS GUN IS HIGHLY RATED. BEAUTY ISN'T EVERYTHING AND A HOME INTRUDER FACED BY THIS PISTOL BEST BE WARNED. IT'S GONNA HURT BIG TIME!

Superb pistol
November 30, -0001
I'm convinced that this pistol, especially considering the price, is among the finest, and more accurate, of pellet pistols. I set up a small range in the cellar and shoot only targets for fun. Another likable option is that a 2240 can easily be modified/customized. My older eyes don't focus on open sights, and so, I ordered a steel breech kit from Crosman so that I could install a red dot sight, and now I can pretty much blast away the bullseye from 24 feet, consistently. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase of this thoroughly enjoyable pistol.



By arne hutsebaut from Ressegem , Belgium on June 17, 2012
Is it possible to add a scope to it? If so, what do I need to do to add one?

By arne hutsebaut from Belgium on June 17, 2012
Where does the co² cartridge need to be placed? And how can a scope can be added?
By Shane from Raceland, LA on June 26, 2012

Answer:
The CO2 carts go into the tube below the barrel. (the end twists off)

In-order to scope it, you either have to upgrade to a Steel Breech *an aftermarket part* or buy the clamp on barrel adapters. (they're kind of like heavy duty clothes pins that clip around the barrel in front of the breech and you mount the scope on them.)
