I got this little pistola a couple of weeks ago from AGS but I only just got a chance to shoot it this weekend.

Fun to shoot and wacks the 14.3g Crosman Premiums over the chronograph in the low 420's even at 15C.
Just off-hand plinking for now as I don't have my bench built yet but the accuracy seems promising. The trigger is truly awful and the sights are not that great but there is tweaking to be done over the winter months :wink:

Cheers,
Geoff

Sounds good~ 15C with a not that light weight 14.3gr pellets with stock barrel to reach 420fps~ your 2240 works very well!

The good for a 2240 is a awful trigger and a not that great sights.... So that you can work on it as it provides you a great platform to work on and make it better and better~ ;-)

Nice winter project gun.They are pigs on co2 If you take a bit off hammer spring you can almost double shot count without drop in power. And if you put long barrel on it say 14.5 then it is so much easier to shoot and brings fps up in 450 to 470 range. have fun.

2240! Welcome to the rabbit hole for modding. It's a long deep $$ hole. But a very fun way to learn , so many options.
Just remember to keep it under 500.
There are ton of options to improve trigger, some cost a lot others require tools and knowledge , lot's of options.
Cheers
Walther
