I am planning on getting a Crosman 1322 pellet pistol soon. But first I want to know if it is accurate or not. I would generally use it for small game hunting, which is why I want to upgrade from my 495 fps .177 rifle to a .22 caliber gun. Is it worth it?

For sure!

Very nice as is; but can be modded as much as you want.

A must buy for any airgunner!

1322 a little big for trucking it around in a bush. It does not feel like a pistol in my hand. The clack clack clack from pumping it will alert every animal in the bush. Not many options for a holster. My old eyes had trouble with the all black sights so I scoped mine which makes it even more clumsy in a bush. I use my 2240 for in the bush. I put on fibre optic sights and it hits on the money every shot and nice options for a holster. The 2240 makes quite the crack when you shoot it so likely a wash between the two in the bush. One gun before the shot and one after the shot. I really don't hunt with it either in the bush but I take my 2240 when I work on Archery 3D coarse in case any predators decide to investigate me and what I am doing. Home shooting is pretty much just my two Beeman P17's with RioRand Red Dot scopes. Good luck with your choice as you will likely end up with both the 1322 and the 2240 eventually. :lol: CHEERS!

You can do clack mods to keep the noise down when pumping a 13xx ( a piece of vinyl tube ). Pump would be less effected by colder temps than C02.

No offense wheeliehd but how thick is the bush you cannot operate a 10" pistol?

For quite a few years, I carried a 1322 for popping grouse and rabbits while deer hunting. Check legalities first, but was and still is legal in Alberta. If ANY doubt exists, contact fish and wildlife in the area in which you plan to hunt.

I have the 1322 before the 2240. IMO, for hunting (real) small games, 2240 would be a better choice as once you need a second shot, on the time you handle the 1322, your 2240 would be firing the 4th shot already... and be prepared to carry enough co2 with your 2240, every 12g co2 will give you about 30 shots only.

Does anyone know if the crosman 1322 is loud or not, because that would really effect my hunting when I'm going for quail or grouse. I live in bc so the bag limit is 10 a day for both. I checked and the crosman 1322 has approx. 6 foot pounds of energy, does anyone know how much you need to kill a pheasant somewhat "humanly"?

I just realized that if I get the full kit with the attachable stock, wouldn't it technically be classified as a rifle?

No. Technically, it is still a pistol by the law.

Restricted firearm* means:

a handgun that is not a prohibited firearm,
a firearm that is not a prohibited firearm,
has a barrel less than 470 mm in length, and
is capable of discharging centre-fire ammunition in a semi-automatic manner,
a firearm that is designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm by folding, telescoping or otherwise, or
a firearm of any other kind that is prescribed to be a restricted firearm in the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-Restricted.

Prohibited firearm* means:

a handgun that
has a barrel equal to or less than 105 mm in length, or
is designed or adapted to discharge a 25 or 32 calibre cartridge, but does not include any such handgun that is prescribed, where the handgun is for use in international sporting competitions governed by the rules of the International Shooting Union,
a firearm that is adapted from a rifle or shotgun, whether by sawing, cutting or any other alteration, and that, as so adapted,
is less than 660 mm in length, or
is 660 mm or greater in length and has a barrel less than 457 mm in length,
an automatic firearm, whether or not it has been altered to discharge only one projectile with one pressure of the trigger, or
any firearm that is prescribed to be a prohibited firearm in the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-Restricted.

Pretty much, if you extend your barrel and add a stock that doesn't fold, it isn't a hand gun anymore. Of course, that all costs money, but should make it legal

No. The 1322 is classified as a hand gun, and remains a hand gun no matter what you add to it. With power modifications, it easily becomes ain instant restricted firearm that required an RPAL and is limited to the restrictions set for powderburner pistols.

Edit: I guess you guys beat me to it.

Nope, Started out as a pistol and still is a pistol, no matter if you put a longer barrel, stock etc. Just a pistol with a longer barrel and stock.

Top gun is just a 1911 in a chassi system.
