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.

Oil it before shooting.

A fun gun

No replacement o-rings included

By EdwardUSAJanuary 6, 2022

Get a good Allan wrench set from Home Depot. Everything else is on eBay. Mine has a small laser mounted on the breech. This is a great platform to begin with.

Inexpensive platform to begin modifications because many up grades are available.

Things I have changed: New, and beautifully crowned 8 inch barrel. Left handed bolt in an anodized aluminum dovetail breech (lighter weight than steel). Fluted hammer with heavier hammer spring. Brass barrel band, brass caps, brass trigger, brass safety, and a brass. Max power valve with a wider, fully sealed transfer port. Now shooting 29.5 grain .22 bullets at over 420 FPS for about 12 FPE. Will fully penetrate 0.5 inches of pine at one meter (yard).

great target pistol

one of my favorites


By LeeUSADecember 20, 2020

Quite possibly the best pellet pistol in it's price range. Everyone should own at least two, as I do. Fun gun. Accurate, powerful and good looking.



By Robert November 17, 2020

really fun gun!

Solid, balanced feeling gun, I am a lousy shot, but I still managed a degree of accuracy with this gun.

I am no expert, but I'd say don't change a thing.

Rugged, reliable and fun to shoot. Get one today.

Powerful, and reliable, the Crossman 2240 Pellet Pistol is the way to go for years of shooting.

Maybe to much plastic but still the pistol preforms very well.

By GeorgeUSADecember 12, 2019




By JimDecember 4, 2019

Easy to use & shoot with plenty of power.

Shoots really great at 20 yards right out of the box. Safety is really user friendly.

Have not found one yet.

Where can I get longer barrels and shoulder stock?

asked Stephen from USA

Check on Ebay

Wyman from USA

What size co2 does it take

asked Shawn


Wyman from USA

How do I get an 18”barrel

asked Chrids Murray

Can this model be fitted with the shoulder stock as other Crossnan pistols?

asked Jim Fleiger

Absolutely, the shoulder stock for the 1377 .177 version Crosman fits exactly, with only two screws . Remove hand grips and the stock fit perfectly on mine. It also improved accuracy tremendously for Long range targets. Basically turns it into a carbine type rifle when using the stock.

Steven from USA

Can this gun be fitted with a laser sight?

asked Bob

Is there a way to change the front sight? It is very difficult to see the sight tip as it has no color for visibility unless one gets in a lite area where they can see the black pin (tip of sight) centered with the rear sight.

asked Merlin

what is the longest distance this gun will shoot at?

asked patricia from USA

Also added the shoulder stock increased my accuracy to pin point bullseye shots using the .22 Excite lead pellets.

Steven from USA

Unmodified I would say for plinking with open sights about 60 feet or 20 yards.

Travis from USA

100 yards

AJ from USA

Approx. how many good shots do u get out of a cartridge? Thanks

asked Robert from USA

I get 8, then falls off dramatically

wayne from USA

I would say 35 "good shots" 45 if you are punching paper of pop cans. After 35 the velocity starts to drop, I wouldn't recommend it for pest control after those first 35 shots.

Parker from USA

40 highly accurate shots. I change after 40 although there are perhaps 10-20 more -- decreasingly accurate -- shots possible.


I get about 70 shots per CO2 cartridge. I always put a drop of Pellgun oil on the tip of each CO2 cartridge before inserting it into the gun. This oil keeps the seals pliable and preserves them.

Jose from USA

40-45 tops. Anyone telling you more is questionable,

Anthony from USA

Several things influence such as temperature, rate of fire and break in.

Ronald from USA

Um-modded, about 40 to 45 Good shots..modded 20 to 25 with double the f.p.s..and higher impact force of course!

Marilyn from USA

By good shots I'll assume you mean shots BEFORE dropping from lack of CO2 pressure, and that varies between 18 and 29 on mine and the variance depends on pellets used as well as how long it sits between shots and air temp too.

Edward from USA

35ish ...


How long can you leave the CO2 cartridge in the gun and still have it function?

asked Monty Johnson

As long as needed, just make sure you pellgun oil the tip before you insert the cartridge. If you only shoot maybe 30 pellets and there is still co2 inside, just leave in tube til next shooting.

Joseph from USA

Best to not leave cartridge in for a couple days, to avoid damage to the seals.

Ronald from USA

I only leave mine in overnight sometimes, and have had no problems or leakeage.

Marilyn from USA

Is it powerful enough to kill opossums or small varmints and game? Because there some squirrels digging in my moms garden and I want to blast em. plus there has been a humongous rat the size of a opossum and I want to know if I can kill a animal that big with a .22 2240 pellet pistol

asked John

Yes..ive killed turkey out to 30 yards with my modded 2240 with no problem..

Marilyn from USA

The first couple of shots at less then 25ft. will KILL small varmints

Tom from USA

What is meant by max/cap of 60 shots. Does that mean a magazine holding 60 pellets and feeds with each bolt action?

asked Anthony

There is no magazine. This is a single-shot pistol only.


It means that each 12 gram co2 capsule will provide 60 shots. As a stock gun I found the gun to get about 40 shots. This is a great shooter for the money.

Phillip from USA

avg. shots per co2 cart.

mike from USA

Could this handgun kill a normal bird like a robin?

asked Christian

Please don't kill songbirds, it's illegal. Check with your local wildlife officials as to what is legal in your area to hunt or dispatch as a "pest."

Parker from USA

Yes, with proper shot placement you this gun is capable of a lot. That being said, why would you shoot a robin? They are protected as a song bird. The 2240 is a great gun that is easy to mod/improve.

Phillip from USA

Is scope mount available? What is price of metal breach?

asked Russell

Yes, for stock 2240 you can buy the 429 intermounts that mount on barrel. Or you can buy a replacement steel receiver/ breech that has a mount on top ( you lose the rear sight). Steel receiver is around $37.99.

Joseph from USA

look up Crosman steel breech kits, they run around 35-40$, more if you get them from other sites. Once modified you"ll have 11mm dovetail rails, if you want weaver/picatinny then there are adapters to change the dovetail to aforementioned mounts.

Parker from USA

Metal breach is $37.99 here at AD!

Ronald from USA

Yes, with a steel Breech..or u can go with a brass or aluminum breech, i went with a brass breech for my 2240 i bought here..Best custom breechs ive found come from Alchemy Airwerks! That is where i got the 1 in this pic for $66.00, the breech u can buy here is just as good, just not brass or aluminum!!

Marilyn from USA

Can you please tell me if I can mount a laser on this pistol? Or can I order one from and set it up with a scope on it?

asked frank

I have seen both laser sights that mount to the dovetail rails on the steel breech as well as a laser that clamps to the barrel hanging under the gun.

Parker from USA

Crosman sells the adaptor mount for a scope or laser. I can use the laser or if it's real sunny, I can use the iron sites because there is a "tunnell" to site thru the scope mount.

Terry from USA

Yes, the same scope that comes with the Crosman Model 2250B works with the Model 2240. The round barrel to dove tail adapter works with a dove tail rail laser scope.

Gary from USA

i don't believe that you can mount a laser. you can call customer service and confirm as they are very helpful. it is a fun little co2.

Ei-Cheng from USA

hey my name its Alan Brito from Brazil! you sento Brazil?

asked Alan

Try checking out at the sight and if there is a restriction you will get a warning before you purchase the product. There are a lot of different regulations for all different countries and they are always changing, so we have set up an automatic warring if there is a product, based on your location, that is forbidden. Shipping price always changes, but you should be able to see the final price before you complete your purchase.

Scott from USA

What size co2 does it take?

asked Nils from USA

Co2- 12 Gram

Scott from USA

I got one of these from a friend and it has a CO2 cartridge corroded in it and won't come out. Any ideas on how I can get it out?

asked RJ

I had the same issue. I bought one of these at a garage sale, and I took it apart, and it worked perfectly after that. Just make sure that the gas is all gone, ( just try shooting it ) then download the video instructions on how to disassemble the gun it is easy. You can completely rebuild these guns with just a few basic tools.

Michael from USA

Where does the co² cartridge need to be placed? And how can a scope can be added?

asked Arne from Belgium

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.)

Shane from USA

Is it possible to add a scope to it? If so, what do I need to do to add one?

asked arne hutsebaut

two options: get the dovetail inter-mounts (they clamp to the barrel and allow a scope to be mounted on the barrel) not the best solution but cheap OR get the steel breech kit and mount a scope to the 11mm dovetail rail it provides (this is the more expensive option) that being said i have steel breech kits on all my Crosman pistols/carbines and they hold a scope very well.

Parker from USA

Yes all you need to do is buy the scope & the mounts


do you ship to malaysia?

asked pipi

Thank you for you interest. For questions about international ordering/shipping please email us at [email protected]. This so we can better help you.

Steve from USA

look i like the look but will it take a squirrel at about 40 to 50 yards? i like to tie fishing flies and need something to get some new furs

asked bill

I have a 24 in. barrel with all of the mod. and I would not be afraid to take that shoot.

Wyman from USA

Yes, if u mod it like this one in my pic!

Marilyn from USA

i think with a 18 barrel u can achieve it at aroound 40 yards or so yess


I would us a air rifle at that distance. I doubt there is any way you can achieve accuracy at that distance with a pistol.
