Hey all! I recently moved to Edmonton from Ireland and have bought a few airguns to fool around with (1077, 2240 and Benji .22 Classic). I bought the 2240 to mod a bit, and im collecting parts at the moment. I have the 2240 to 2250 kit from scopesandammo, a brake and other small bits. I fancy getting a repeater breech. BNM seem to be the only people still making these but as far as I am aware they come with a barrel shroud which is illegal in Canada as it classes as a suppressor.

I emailed them and got a very vague message back in broken english. Does anyone know if I can still use my standard crosman barrel or are there any other options out there.

Cheers!

You can use the Crosman barrel. If you want no shroud you order the breech without the stub for the Shroud. Shrouds can be used here without ant issues as long as the barrel terminates at the end of the shroud. No baffles or hair cullers inside!

They just look cool! :D

Quite the culture shock, I'm sure. But don't believe for a moment that you aren't places to go and equally crazy people to hang out with. PM me. My youngest son is 35, my oldest is 44, and both can do the accent for you if you're not up to brad's standards, Oldest one just finished a forever loved tour of Ireland with his GF of the moment. If you're just lookin' for someone older like, the mid sixties, to shout you down and bring you up (as long as the Irish Whiskey is on the table.

Whatever your local experience, I'm very confident we can help you out

If you use a BNM breach and dont make a shroud or bull barrel style cover, the barrel will look very thin and out of place. Those breaches are very beefy. I would not use one on a 2240 pistol. Only a carbine or rifle.

Yes, you can order without the baffles or make one yourself for a less than 10.00

Not so much of a culture shock really, everyone is quite laid back here and enjoys a beer so that's similar. I do find the people much much more supportive, encouraging, open minded and sincere than the Nothern Irish folk. The weather is a bit mad though having one day with 0 degrees and the next will be minus 37 with wind chill, still it beats year round rain and casual violence!
I am 27 myself and just started working for Weatherford as a production operator doing light mig welding, I want to gain my cwb or red seal and perhaps move out to the rigs, fiance dependant of course! Living around the fort road at the moment and needless to say we are moving asap, a lot of shady characters.

That's good about the shroud being usable as it looks pretty sweet really. Pretty cool that we are able to enjoy airguns here, the laws are pretty tight in ireland!
