I made an adapter to use a co2 bulk fill 20oz paintball tank which I attatched to the stock. I added the steel breech and 24" barrel with muzzle brake. Made my own aluminum tube stock with a maple butt piece and remington butt pad. Topped it with a bushnell 3-9x40 AR scope.


Spent last night shooting BB's stuck in my pellet trap from 10m on a bench.

Very happy with the results!

Very inventive!

How do you keep it under 500 fps?

Well - if you live in Canada and it is over 500 fps; you are in possession of a restricted firearm and require an R-PAL license to even
own it.

BTW - the owner of this very nice 2240 has now disassembled it pending the arrival of a chrony and testing it to make sure that it is under 500 fps...

I'm still waiting on the arrival of my chrony, however now the gun is a 2260, and officially a rifle.

Nice!

Since you must have your PAL - you are now all legal...
