My dad taught me to shoot with a .22 BSA air rifle in the court yard of the farm when I was 4 years old. Sadly we where only renting the house so we moved on to less gun friendly areas. Approximately 50 years later and after a lot of burnt gun powder I'm suddenly digging out the old 1322, 2240, Slavia .177 630/77, Slavia .177 624, and a Chinese .22 air rifle (B5-1 I think) version of the type 81 military rifle. Oiling and cleaning them and rediscovering the fun of cheap shooting.

I've gone on a bit of an online shopping bender and ordered a .22 SPA WF600 (aka B3-4)($118 shipped), it appears to be very similar to the type 81 trainer (which is a great shooter) but with much better ergonomics. The type 81 trainer is horrid to hold and shoot and makes a mess of the web between my thumb and finger of my right hand, the stock is also about 4 inches too short for me. The scope rail is also junk and a scope will not stay zeroed on it, the iron sights are accurate.

I was also ordering parts to make a carbine/rifle out of the 2240 but discovered on this site (google search lead me here) that it would still be a pistol even with the shoulder stock and long barrel. I'm going ahead with this project but have now also ordered a 2260 main tube to replace the 2240 main tube. I'm hoping to get a 700fps ish .22 carbine/rifle out of this when done. If that works out I'll look at adding a magazine to to it as well.

Thanks for all the good info I have found and will find on this site.

Unless you have your restricted, I wouldn't post anything about a pistol with velocity over 500fps unless you want the boys in blue knocking on your door.

Yes I have my restricted PAL and an ATT to take my restricted firearms to the range etc... I will not be making a restricted firearm out of a 2240 because it will be a 2260 which while it will be a firearm due to both muzzle energy and velocity it will not be restricted and will be treated the same as my other non-restricted firearms (note it will have a full length stock and barrel resulting in an over all length of at least 26 inches).

Now other recently prohibited firearms that our "buttock hat/Dear Leader" justin has recently inflicted on myself and others are another matter, that idiot still hasn't given me a viable option to dispose of those.

PS... if anyone is looking for 2260 main tubes Crosman Canada has them in stock for about $30 and free shipping, at least after I bought a few pellets and other bits.

My Chrony decided to work today so I've started getting some base numbers for my guns, this is only rough and I'll get the exact numbers later.

WF600 460fps
B5-2 (the AK/Type 81 thing) 420fps
1322 440fps with 10 pumps and 499fps with 20
2240 390fps (the transfer port thing has a damaged seal, I'm waiting for a new one)

Welcome to the forum.

20 pumps? For one shot? OK I'm never getting a 1322. Even SSP's are on the outs for me.
