Hi All,
Just picked up a 1377 and 2240 from a gentleman on Gunnutz. Stock aside from steel breeches on each.
Will be looking around at some upgrade ideas.

Cheers

Welcome.

Mods depend on what your planning on doing with them.

Personally I like the fatter forearms that found on the 1389/2289s. And you can put vinyl tube on the pump lever, to quiet the Clack Clack as you are pumping.

Thanks for the warm welcome folks.
Thinks I'll start with a shoulder stock of some kind and a longer barrel, maybe some trigger work.

Welcome aboard.

That's a good start. Be sure your longer barrel doesn't end up putting you over 500 fps, or you'll have a non-restricted firearm on your hands, requiring a non-restricted firearms license. When you're modifying air guns, it's pretty important that you have a chrony available to measure the impact of your mods on shooting speed as you make them.

Thanks for the tip. I do have an RPAL but would rather keep them under the radar. That being said I don't want to leave to much fps on the table either.
