Sheridan air rifles and pistols have a very devoted following. The air guns were previously made in only .20 caliber; however, this limited edition is made in .22 caliber. It's bound to become a collectible! Whether you're a seasoned shooter or just buying your first airgun, you can't go wrong with the Sheridan 2260MB (MB=metal breech).

If you enjoy killing tin cans, slapping spinners and destroying paper targets, then this CO2 pellet rifle is right for you. It's dependable, accurate and compact. When it comes time to shoot for enjoyment, this will be your go-to airgun. Using an 18.2-grain lead pellet, our tech department achieved 515 f.p.s. After settling down, our test gun consistently shot 500 f.p.s. with this heavier ammo and had a standard deviation of only 5 f.p.s. Very few guns have such a low standard deviation, and that low rate is almost unheard of in CO2 guns. The manufacturer states the max velocity is 600 f.p.s., which would require a lighter pellet.

  • CO2 powered
  • Bolt-action/Single-shot
  • Metal Breech (MB)
  • Ambidextrous hardwood stock
  • Fixed front sight Fully adjustable rear sight

No issue on the trigger for me and another issue resolved.
September 20, 2019
I have currently mounted the Winchester #813 on the Sheridan 2260 CO2 rifle. It appears the Sheridan has a significant "barrel droop" This doesn't mean there is a bow in the barrel. It means the muzzle is lower than the chamber and sight mount, whereby the scope mount can't align with the bore of the barrel. I was shooting consistent within an inch at 50 ft. but 8" low. I added 2 thin shims of aluminum under the rear of the sight ring. This brought the impact point up to near the center of the reticle and to the near top of the 9 ring. From there a full turn and a half brought the scope to zero (@ 50 ft.). Any thin flexible material can be used such as film stock, laminating plastic, or gaffer's tape. Without the shimming there aren't enough turns available on the turret to compensate for the 8" difference. My first CO2 rifle. I expected a few more shots from ea cylinder. The last three shots dropped off considerably. Maybe 20-25 rounds.

ProsMade in 'Merica.
ConsThe barrel droop issue confused me for a bit but was easily corrected.

A Good Pellet Rifle
April 29, 2019
It's a well built rifle with a nice wood stock. Plenty of power and is accurate. The one problem I have is a crack in the plastic cover on the butt. I have stood the rifle on the butt in a closet but didn't drop it there.
I'm using Falcon pellets.

Customizable CO2 Rifle
October 29, 2018
With many similarities to the Crosman 2400, this rifle is fun for the tinkerer. This has enough power to take out rats. Trigger sucks, but there are options on the internet. Wood stock had marks on it and it wasn't in the best shape. If you have the mindset that this is a platform, you will be happy.
ProsAccurate enough, .6 inch 10 shot groups at 25 yards with JSB 18s. .8 inch 10 shot groups at 25 with Crosman CPHP 14s. Customizable. Power. Long barrel speeds up pellets.
ConsTrigger sucks. Had some burrs on the crown.
Best UsesPest getter. Plinker Tinker Not perfect, but with a few $ you can make it yours. Get a cut and crowned barrel, new trigger, and have fun.

Excellent gun for the price.

Readily accepts a scope with the grooved receiver. VERY ACCURATE! Suffiently powerful to take squirrels at 30 yards with one shot. I'm very happy with this purchase.
ProsNo pumping. Plenty of shots per co2 cylinder.
ConsWon't work well in cold weather.
By John
Cost effective fun!
November 21, 2016
Neat little rifle. NIce hardwood stock, easy to use. Mounted a decent TASCO scope on it and at 15 yards we're hitting the same hole. Highly recommend!
ProsNIce stock, cost effective, accurate.
ConsNo cons for what it's meant for.

Nice rifle
November 16, 2016
I bought this to be a more powerful plinker just for fun, couldn't pass on the sale price. I prefer 12g CO2 over 88 because they are so much cheaper and it doesn't bother me to have to swap them out. I have probably 200 shots through it now, all Crosman premier domed 14.3 gr. At 15 yards can't miss 3/4" target. I haven't really tried yet to see how good it can get on paper but I suspect it is much better than that. I get 35 +/- good shots on one cart. The open sights are poor quality (like my eyesight is getting to be) so I put a 4x scope on it. Higher rings would have made it easier to load but I've got the technique down now. Not super quiet but not noticeably or alarmingly loud either. I shoot in the backyard with pretty close neighbors.
ProsFor a generic hardwood stock it has beautiful grain and color. The overall fit and finish belies the low price. It is easy to use and is accurate.
ConsThe rear sight is rudimentary junk and snapped off trying to adjust it. The trigger is gritty and not light but is predictable, I suspect it will wear in with time.

It reminds me more of the older 262 Crosman with the steel breach mod. I just finished rebuilding that very gun. I was surprised to see how much it looked like my 1077 also! Check it out. :-)

Chinese QB ?
October 15, 2016
Not sure if this is a Chinese QB deluxe or if the QB is a clone of this rifle. Price is in line with the Beeman import of the QB deluxe. These are great CO2 rifles. Yes you can get more power out of a springer, and of course out of a PCP. This is the rifle the Discovery is based on. Very accurate, and worth putting a 3-9X40 AO scope on. Enough power for rabbits to 40 yards, and if you do your part, accurate enough to do it.any modifications are available For this gun. Lots of fun. Unlike spring/nitro powered guns these are no way as hold sensitive. While certain pellets will shoot better than others, it is not that pellet picky. I use Crossman Premier 7.9 gr and get sub 1" groups to 40 yards. Groups will grow, and velocity will drop if you shoot too fast. Take at least a minute between shots and it will group better. In AZ it can get too hot for CO2 and you can get this gun locked up. I have not had good luck with any of my CO2 guns when it is over 110 degrees. Too cold and power drops. It never gets too cold here.
It is not worth giving any chronograph results, as they change with temperature and altitude, as well as they will change with rate of fire too. Suffice to say, it will accomplish small game hunting, great for plinking, and a nice gun to teach shooting and fire arm safety. It is accurate, and is back yard friendly. The power is low enough to make a simple back stop for.
ProsPrice. Accuracy. Quality. Ease of use.
ConsCould use better iron sights

Far too expensive for a rifle with a plastic trigger and the sides are almost useless
ProsPower for a co2
ConsSights and trigger plastic

I own several airguns. A dozen or so. This gun was accurate out of the box. Power is not quite as high as the Discovery, they have the same platform, but it is enough for the pest around my house. I get dime size groups at 20 yards, smaller on my good days. Shot count will vary I am told. I get around 40 good shots inside a dime on one cartridge of Co2. That is some cheap fun. Do not hesitate to buy this gun, you will have a blast. And just so you know, Airgun Depot has great prices and service.
ProsLightweight. Accurate. Not too loud. Easy to operate. If you haven't figured it out yet, This is my favorite.
ConsI can't complain about this gun at all.

well worth the money
August 31, 2016
I bought this for plinking and pest control. Works well for pest control out to 30yd. (squirrels & invasive doves)
Prosaccurate with virtually any pellet, (can hit bottle caps at 25yd), lightweight, and fun to shoot
ConsNo cons, but 70fps more velocity would be nice.

This rifle is part of the Crosman 22xx series of co2 guns, and will accept any of the custom parts and mods available for those guns.
Full disclosure: my 2260 is the Crosman Heritage version. After I had it in hand, I installed a steel breech. This Sheridan version comes with the steel breech already installed, but it was not yet available at the time that I bought mine.
At the same time that I installed the breech, I also performed the Biohazard valve mods to increase performance. Then I cross-pinned the valve and added a HiPac, which is a screw-in air tube that converts a co2 gun to high pressure air and/or bulk fill co2. The result? I now get 850 fps with JSB 18.13 grain pellets for about a dozen shots per fill of HPA, along with good groups all the way out to 75 yards.
That is what can be done with this rifle. But you don't have to take it that far. The original 2260 was called the "Rabbit Stopper," and it is. This 2260 is a great hunting rifle out of the box, and the steel breech makes adding a good scope a no-brainer.
By the way, this is the gun the Benjamin Discovery is based on. You can think of it as a co2 powerlet version of the Discovery.
ProsPowerful. Accurate. Made of steel and wood. Made in USA. A good value in a world of plastic Chinese airguns.

Better than Expectation
August 13, 2014
I bought this for my (dear) mother who is, God bless her, getting old. The goal of the purchase was to get a gun lethal to a rabbit at <20 yards. Her Ruger Explorer was not getting the job done. Also, the gun had to be light-weight (<6lbs, all in), easy to load/function, not hold sensitive and <$200. The list of suitable guns was actually smaller than I thought. We got it done with this one. The thing that Mom complained (talked about) the most is the CO2. Not much can be done here, there was really at least 1 issue with any gun. I think what convinced her to keep it was that brother #1 shot it and liked it, then Brother #2 (Army veteran) shot it and loved it and Mom could officially perform all the tasks required for dispatching/hitting her targets; all plastic or paper to date. I finally got to shoot it (I'm 4 hours away) and it really was all the brothers stated. My 2 boys loved it and told Nana as much (then asked if it was actually hers or ours as we ordered is hers, she paid me the $) I shot Crosman pointed alloy (9.6gr?) and they were terrible. Then RWS hyper-velocity (11gr) and they were spot on). Finally Beeman hollow pt (12.?gr) & these shot well too. I got a squirrel and a rabbit with it (Beeman pellets). I thought the trigger was fine for the gun and price-point. I had thoughts of getting the Crosman Heritage 2260 as Mom has no intention of scoping the gun (same basic gun but much cheaper). Like others, I got about 25 good shots with temp in the upper 70's. A few others to finish off the 12grams.
ProsIt is very accurate with the right pellets (not Crosman pointed alloy). I did not think it was worthy of stating loudness at 4. I'd give it a 3. Wood was nice. I think it will be a gun that will last. I might get one myself and make some performance mods to it.
ConsI think the price point is a touch high. The sights are not worthy of the price point. Only elevation on rear/ not fiber-option I thought the bolt was a bit sloppy in the breech. Perhaps that was just me.
