Thinking about picking up a disco when i get my bonus this spring, but want to get a 2260 to try a couple asthetic mods (custom stock and breech) before to make sure they work. would rather chop up a $100 airgun and ruin it than a $300 airgun. DL doesnt list them, airgun source and scopes and ammo dont list them and specialty shooting sports says they are out of stock.

Thanks

That is rather unfortunate. I might have to email D&L or scopes and ammo to see how much the tube, barrel, trigger group and a 2240 are. I have a feeling though that after buying it separately I may still be cheaper just to get the disco and if i screw it up, buy the parts to fix it.

Unfortunately, the 2260 and 2240 are significantly different so you can' t really make a 2240 a 2260- the only parts that would cross over would be the breech, bolt , front sight and valve (don't think I'm missing anything here). The 2260 has a different "frame" and trigger setup to allow mounting of the stock. If a 2260 were built completely out of parts- they would total somewhere around $200.00- so you may very well be better off getting the Discovery as you ultimately intend, and if you break something, just replace that part. -not that I'm trying to talk you out of purchasing $200.00 in parts from me... :mrgreen:

If you got a 2240, did not need the 2260 stock as you will make your own and then ordered all the other 2260-specific parts, I believe you could get away with somewhere around $110-ish in parts- so it would be a few dollars cheaper and you'd have some extra 2240 bits/pieces left over.
