2240 is good but you'll end up spending quite a bit on it.
my choice would be the QB79 8)
both guns are very mod friendly. :wink:
depends on your budget and how crazy you want to get. :lol:
Oh!! yeah one more thing welcome to the dark side they have cookies waiting for you :lol:

Well i know that sniper Dan from the Caf store carries the QB-78 and i don't think he has anymore 79's but you may want to pm him and ask.
http://www.airgunforum.ca/store/product ... ucts_id=30

You can also buy an adapter to run on the QB-78 but the reason i said the 79 is because it comes ready to mount a tank and I'm not sure how much you want to tinker around.

If he cant get them i know you can order one from Archerairguns.

Here is a nicely modded 78 :tonqe:

And if you get hooked and wanna have some real fun they sell a repeater breach for it. :wink:

again this is just my opinion.
anyways good luck have fun. :drinkers:

Unfortunately, Archer won't ship the repeater breech to Canada.

HiPac is probably the easiest way but like i said it depends how serious you want to get but just google search HiPac 2240.

They claim a muzzle velocity increase of over 100 fps, so they won't sell it to us.

The problem with converting a 2240 is that it can never be PAL legal because it is sold as a pistol and rated non pal. A HPA conversion is capable of 1200 fps in a 2240 but totally "ILLEGAL". I have mine converted just to save money by not having to buy Co2. If you convert, you still need a HPA pump + or - $300. Good luck.

wow 100fps must be more to the repeater breach than just being a repeater interesting :?

Well if i may say Joe you can still keep it under the 500fps level by chopping the hammer spring until it reaches under 500 and you will get i heck of a lot more shots.
Please correct me if I'm wrong Joe i haven't done a HiPac so I'm guessing here but i believe that would work. :roll:

Like i said to the OP it can get expensive going the 2240 way.
i still say QB-79 :wink:

Save all the money from upgrades and just get a Brocock Atomic or Grand Prix! Both have iron sights that are adjustable!

I know I have easily spent $300 on each and every 2240-50-60 I have or have built for someone!

You are correct ACE but I didn't chop the spring just used a lighter one and a smaller transfer port. I still only get 40 shot,s even with a Hi-pac extension. But still cheaper than Co2 My Hi-pac has paid for itself ten fold in Co2 saving,s.
