I recently acquired that iconic air pistol, and couldn't resist tinkering with it a bit. I added a 12'' barrel, which is a cut, turned down and re-crowned Trail NP rifle barrel. I took advantage of the factory flaw, the shrinked portion of barrel near the barrel block, to make a choked barrel, and it work! No problems shooting through the same hole in a tin can at 8 meters. Speaking of tin cans, the 14.3 gr. CPHP pellet will only go through one side of the can and put a small dent on the other side. I haven't chronied it yet, but I'm confident it's under the legal limit. But just to be sure, I also swapped the stock 0.140'' transfer port for a 0.092'' brass one, and squished the stock spring coil-to-coil, and let it ''set'' for one hour. I'm also using a brass spring guide I had laying around. A nice thing is that the pistol is so much quieter in that configuration, I could compare it to my un-modded 1377 at 7-8 pumps.For some bling, I added a SS bolt handle on the stock-style bolt. I plan to eventually add a steel breech, better sights and wood grips.

Recently made some improvements to my 2240. I added a steel breech, a .177 cal. 10.1'' Lothar Walter barrel, a Williams notch blade rear sight and a home-made hex-shaped muzzle brake with sight pin. Not target tested yet, but averaging 453 fps with 7.9 gr. pellets 8)

I love it, you don't see many like that. Completely stock, but just as we all fell in love with it.

Thanks Michael :D . This is my dedicated target pistol, so I didn't want to overdo it. The only other mods I plan are to drill and tap the breech for a second grub screw, and a set of wood grips. I, too, like the rather stock look, and the pistol is well balanced that way :wink:
