Am I dumb and just don't understand how you can attach an airtank to the rear of a 2240? As far as I know air can't go past the hammer and too the valve the way a stock 2240 is made. Am I totally missing something in all my bookmarks?

There is an air line that runs down the (left?) side of the action to take the air past the hammer and into the valve that has a hole in the side and a fitting that sticks out through the tube....

Thanks for the explanation Bob and Jeff! I just have only seen a few of them and thought someone was custom building these. Don't know Crosman actually made something like this! The 2250XT I am familiar with is just a stretched 2240, with no air run up the side!

I am still only 6 months new into this and still have lots to learn! :D

Does anyone have a close-up view of their own of the left-hand side of all the fittings of the AS2250?

Here is what the other side looks like Rick I'm pretty sure you could do it to a 2240 if you wanted to do all that work but there are easier ways to put an external tank on a 2240 I'm working on one at the moment I'll post pic's when I'm done.

Thanks Ace! I was just thinking the balance would be SO much better with the tank to the rear! If you wanted to take it to the field on a sling, I don't think I would want the tank digging into my shoulder. Wonder if you could inset a tank into the cheapie Crosman stock, OR build a shoulder stock around the tank and ditch the shoulder stock?

Yeah that is ugly and poorly done, but what I was aiming for. Probably have to stretch the stock to make it work.

Here is one more idea the tank through style stock.

I personally prefer the tank in the front something like this but that's just me.
Just shooting some ideas at you no pun intended :wink:

Here's a project I started last year as a little experiment, but ended up getting put on the backburner. Looks awkward, but is actually quite comfy (to say it's far from finished) and balances great. Maybe when I get my latest project finished I'll resurrect this one and finish it off... :P

I'm using 3/16 brake line running from bottle up through the inside of stock up to the front of tube :mrgreen:
