Hi People....Hope everyone had a good May 24 week end....I ended up buying a Crosman 1322 at Princess Auto....well I should say exchanged for a pair of tires and rims that I had purchased for my trailer that didn't fit...anyways....I decided to take my fondness of air guns to a new level...modifications. I decided to start with the 1322 after watching a couple vids and seen that it is a easy gun to start with. I had come across a website that had all the upgrades I wanted to do...steel breach , 24" barrel etc and I was pretty sure I bookmarked the site but due to my sometimers I find I never bookmarked it and now can't find that site. I looked here hoping someone had mentioned a good site to buy upgrades for the 1322 but never came across a post in this regard. Can anyone help me out here ? It would be greatly appreciated.Keep in mind of course I'm in 1000 Islands , Ontario so I would prefer a Canadian site to keep my costs down.

If your planning on modding, get a chrony. 1322 are still pistols, and adding 24" barrel. Might put it over 500 fps. Making it restricted.

Ignorance is no excuse.

It can, but it also increases velocity. And if you're planning on doing mods without a chrony. Is not a great idea. Because I'm certain that a 24" barrel will make a stock 1322, shoot over 500 FPS. And you now broke the law. A member here did a test with a 2240 ( well actually a 2260 but they are just a 2240 with a longer main tube ) with different barrel lengths. From a 7.5 to a 24" made it shoot over 100 FPS more.

So means you need to choke the transfer port, or clip the hammer spring. So it doesn't shoot over 500 FPS. Each gun is different so that where the chrony comes in play. Over 500 FPS you require a firearm license. ( Well 500 fps and 4.2 FPE ) But when it comes to air pistols. They become restricted firearms, subject to registry and shot on range only.

Try this one ~ It's a pity that I didn't find it before I buying parts for my 2240/1322 from eBay... Very very nice stainless steel parts for the American Classic ~
