Ah. Well it's a very little thing, hardly qualifies as a mod. Really it's better just to get some YHZ grip or other as wood is definitely the way to go - http://www.dlairgun.com/Accessories/YHZ/

A trigger shoe can be nice certainly. I just banged out a steel one and used some epoxy putty to build out my trigger as it was much too small and sharp feeling. Polished it and it feels good.

The YHZ grips come with what they describe as a 'wax' finish, some sort of Carnauba or something as it's quite hard but easy to scrape off. I re-carved mine quite a bit then used a bunch of coats of a linseed oil based varnish over a couple of weeks. Throw another coat on later maybe, but so far they're looking okay. The basic grip shape is alright but I like a grip to fit my hand really well so I adjusted the panels quite a bit.

Keep it simple to get the most enjoyment out of your build. A simple snip of 20- 25% of the hammer spring is the first. Shot count and a lack of wasting power.
Poliishing the trigger components being #2, just some 400 wet sand paper and a drop or 2 of oil. Light sanding to remove the factory stamping prints of the trigger and sear. Then the trigger spring find a new one or trim to within holding half a coil tension.
Then becomes the metal breech or not. And then that toss up stretch the bbl out with a 10" 1322bbl or a 14", which then just defeatd the purpose of snipping the hammer spring. And another toss up. A comfy set of grips. Which leads into better sights, etc etc.

Ive done and sold, well over 300 of these platforms since their importation into Canada.
Your imagination and wallet are your worse enemies....Just saying you are fore warned.

Well, reality slapped me in the face with my middle child's school costs. She will be falling short on money to feed herself in the last few months of school, so I will be chunking aside as much money as I can to help her out when she calls and says "feed me". LOL.

On the bright side, it gives me time to really plan this out and not buy a ton of stuff I dont really need. I imagine my wife will pick up the 2240 for Christmas for me since she knows I am putting hobby money aside for our daughter, and my wife always wants me to have my toys.

The down side? Damn I really wanted to jump on this and go hog wild!

I shall re-visit this thread once the 2240 is mine.

Thanks everyone for the help, suggestions and the PM's with extra help. It will help to make this a well made gun with smart choices. THEN... I can add the bling.
