No performance gain..
But gives a better platform for fastening barrel and if you want to bolt on a Aiming Device/Scope.
Longer barrel it also helps with.. may be.
So if you are OkDokie with it, have no intension of mounting anything else..
Then keep it as is.

Steel is a more stable and precise material for breeches than plastic for mounting a barrel. This extra rigidity improves accuracy, and can be milled to fine tolerances.
It also makes it easier to upgrade the sights, or add a red dot/scope. Personally, I prefer open sights on my pistols. One of my 2240's sports a Williams notched sight on a Crosman dovetail breech.
If your stock one works OK for you, go with. If you can spare the $, it's a definite upgrade to your pistol...

I'm also cross eyed dominant. Red dots are quite nice, I have one on my beeman. With open sights I might have to tilt my head slightly more than with a red dot.

I had to shoot with my left eye while waiting for eye surgery. I found the red dots worked well indoors but not so great out side if it was sunny. I was using a cheap red dot from Fitco.
