are the parts interchangable with the eb22 and 2240?

i wanted to get a 2240, and do esthetic mods, but then i wondered about starting with a eb22 instead.

but if i got an eb22, can i still customize it as much? for example will it take crosman barrels?
crosman steel breech?

etc?

Parts are not compatible. EB22 cannot be modified and is pretty much an "as is out of box" type of gun.

Yep, the EB-22's great as designed- not much needed to improve it (although I did refinish the grips on mine...)
A 2240, out of the box, is good but a bit more basic. They likely designed it more to meet a lower price point than the EB, knowing it could be upgraded. And at about 1/2 to 2/3 the price of the EB, you could add a couple of goodies to a 2240 and not break the bank.
Warning- it does not stay at a couple of goodies for long...

2240+grips+breech would already have me above the price of eb22, but then I would need some optics as the cros steel breeches don't have sights.

The eb22 seems to make sense, but I know I will want to be tinkering and whatnot, which means I need the 2240.

Damn, what's a dude to do.

I really don't like the way eb22 cocks. I wish it ha a side-hanging bolt. How is it to operate?

Also can optics be added?

Are longer barrels available?

Same, pull the knob back to cock

Not unless you want to make custom mounts similar to Crosman intermounts (not recommended)

No



If you want do more than modding the grips, get a 2240. Use the search function of the forum, your questions have been answered several times over and you will tons of 2240 mod info and instructions if you to go that route.

the knob is equally comfortable, convenient, and easy as the side-hanging bolt of the crosmans?

im familiar with modding crosman's as i have many and have stripped them all down and swapped parts.

im definately getting a 2240 to mod.

the only question is wether or not i want to buy my wife an eb22 for christmas. if the knob-bolt is difficult to operate i might want to avoid it.

i was really hoping i could at least put my 2240 barrel on it (as its commin off the 2240 on day 1). but not the case?

Buy your wife a nice EB22, and a 2240 for yourself from "Santa". That way, you get to have use of both...

Yeah, definitely better made. I would too if I didn't want to do any mods to it, but probably the pumper version HB22 8)
