Good morning! I have been reading and seeing everyone's mods to the 2240 and now I want one.

I am hoping to start modding SLOWLY, but I have a feeling this might take hold and force me to sell some of my current plinkers in order to fund this.

What is the order I should be doing in mods? I am not trying to break any FPS records, and keeping it standard Co2 is my goal, but I see longer barrells, new stocks or just new hand grips, tricked out guns with scopes worth hundreds... it seems you can go crazy.

Did most of you start with the simple intent of making it your own and then just lost control? Had a chat with my wife about this and how pricey it could get, she was nervous because I have an addictive personality. I want to stay simple, but some of you guys have some mighty insane guns.

Get me started lads. Show me the way. I will have my 2240 in 2 weeks.

Steel Breech and a trigger polish/tune and you're done. Everything else is aesthetics. You are right though, it's a slippery slope. . . .

1000 mods for the 2240 But the most important is to keep it under 500fps,

welcome

If you are going to keep the same barrel length...One of the BEST mods is to shorten the hammer spring 1\4 inch and this will give you way more shots per CO2 ..Mine went from 44 good shots to 77 shots while having the same fps.

I was going to keep the barrell the same length and then I saw one with a 14" and I got excited.

This is going to be a BAD experiance to the wallet, but I am going to enjoy having a tricked out gun that I tinkered with. I think that's half the fun.

Initially, a steel breech and trigger work (as mentioned above) are obligatory. If you plan to keep the stock grips, filling each with epoxy helps with balance and gives the grips a more solid feel. RC

I found hot glue cheaper and easier than epoxy. Does a good job filling the plastic shells and making them quieter and more solid feeling in the hand.

The first work will be the steel breech. I defintley like the look of the shoulder stock and longer barrel but I will save a bit and find a nice wood shoulder stock.

I've seen a lot of pictures lately and the gun is absolutely incredible looking in the hands of someone who knows how to make it look and work perfect.

I figure funding will allow me to get this from stock to more modded than I really need within 6 months. I have a monthly budget for hobbies that gets thinner and thinner as I ad more hobbies.

I need a better job. LOL.

Thanks for the lists of what to do and what is essential vs what is glamour. Helps prioritize my actions.

I thought I was done with 2240s and some how I ended up with 2 new ones in the last couple of months.Now I have 5. One is stock but polished and the rest are money pits.
Love them all. Every one is special and different and all are fun to shoot.

Hey Rick. Thats over $500 counting the price of the gun which you didn't include. Or a Hipac.another $140 with an extension, then $200 for one of my stocks and
Youre over $800. Is it worth it ?
When you consider you can have a rifle or pistol , .177 or .22 cal hpa or C02 in one gun, I say yes, it,s like having 4 guns.

When I get your stock in several weeks, it will be like having a custom rifle! Lot cheaper then a true custom powder burner for a minimum of $4000!

Well... I wrote that in response to this:

Filling the cheap plastic grip panels with something dulls the sound they make, makes them seem a bit less cheap in handling. It's not something anyone will ever see from the outside but it lends the thin plastic a bit of a sense of solidity. I was just saying that hot glue, the kind you feed through a hobby hot glue gun, is cheaper than mixing up epoxy. No big deal.
