I was looking at the Crosman website and noticed the 2250 only available in airsouce, is there a way to get one in pcp?

Speaking of the 2250xt, how accurate is a stock one? I think I want a carbine pcp gun to play with becuase my springers are getting boring.

What mods can I do to a 2250xt? It seems like a fairly good gun for the price, but there has to be a catch.

Does anyone have a stock one that I can talk to in more real time like on AIM or MSM?

I have a AS 2250 XT

November 23 2008, 7:49 PM 

John

I have the stock gun that has been modified to accept a 9 OZ paint ball bottle. The stock gun has a 14 " barrel and only comes in .22 from the factory. Mine shoots crosman prem @ 545 fps @ 70 deg. I have an RWS 3-9x40 AO scope and I get groups of 3/4" at 30 yards. Is a very good creater gun.

It is my understanding the Mt. Air can do great things and even convert it to .177 if you should want. I have heard that his work is outstanding but be prepaired to wait several months..

I have several crosman custom shop guns The AS 2250 XT is the most fun to play with in the field because one 9 OZ bottle is good for several hundred shots. Then refilled for about $ 3.00.

Our airgun club in Idaho has a croman match once a year and It was top gun at our Match in March or April of this year. You go to our Idaho F/T web page and check out the march or april results....If you like.

Ok are there any down sides.... I can only say that mine (and I bought it used off this web a 1 1/2 years ago) Oh and I forgot to mention that I did recrown the barrel. ( crosman did not do a very good job ) and the groups did get much better than the stock gun.

So john, I hope this may help, and mine is a keeper.... If you want to chat on the phone send me an e-mail.

George in Idaho

I have a 2250XT, with 24 inch barrel. I run it on air, works fine. A real tackdriver. 720 fps.no mods, just a stronger hammerspring.With the stock 2250 barrel, i think it was 700 fps.

mod city

2250's are co2 only

you can convert them to PCP, but it is a lot of work (or so i am told)

basically you can do pretty much anything with a 2250 - they are highly pimpable little guns and shoot really well

my humble efforts can be found here: http://168.144.194.108/BestofBest18.htm

check out the rest of the airgun artisans website for some examples of well pimped 2250's

dunno who i'd start with re a PCP mod, but there are a few folks on this forum who have experience in such a mod and might be able to offer some pointers.

For the first few changes I would plan on putting a longer barrel, and convert it to pcp.



It would seem easy enough, just change out the fill valve and regulator and slap a paintball tank on there.

For the record, I plan on taking it squirrel, bird, and bunny hunting.

All you actually need is the adapter and bottle.

November 24 2008, 5:31 AM 

If you are using CO2 a 9oz bottle works good, and for High Pressure Air a 13 cu. in. bottle with regulator. As long as you are using 850psi or less pressure you would not need to make any other changes on the gun.

For HPA all you would need is a HPA bottle and Airsource to Paintball adapter

November 24 2008, 5:11 AM 

The 2250xt on the top now has a 850psi regulated bottle and a Mac1 adapter, the 2250 on the bottom has a Mountain Air PCP tube.

Just to make sure I'm not dumb... HPA is a paintball bottle?

If so, could I put a larger one on there? About how much are they to get refilled for that size in the pic (9oz I belive?)?

Actually HPA is High Pressure Air just like with a PCP except the bottle has a regulator, you can fill the bottle with up to 3000psi of air and you can readily get the regulators with pressure 700psi and up. You can also put a 9oz paintball tank on as well and the cost to refill would be about $3. You can put a larger size bottle on but I think you get the best balance with a 9oz PB or 13 cu. in. HPA.

This is an XT with a 9oz CO2 bottle.....

November 24 2008, 8:13 AM 

The brass adapter from B+A works great. I have a short RJ breech in pic but since has been changed to the long RJ breech and a 24 inch barrel. Stock rifle was able to do 1/2 groups at 25 yards with the 14 inch barrel but now with the longer(better?) barrel I am keeping 1/2-3/4 inch groups at 40 yards in good conditions. The valve is stock and only some minor trigger work.

Re: This is an XT with a 9oz CO2 bottle.....

Where can I get an airsource to paintball adapter, how much would it cost?

How many shots can you get out of a 9oz co2 bottle? How much would it cost to fill a 9oz co2?

Whats the difference between using 850psi of co2 or 850psi of air? How would hpa with a good regulator be different from co2, because if it's regulated the hpa tank will get more shots(right?).

The reason I would like to use air is that I have ready access to a very large air tank and can use it at will.

HPA vrs CO2

November 24 2008, 4:33 PM 

ok your main question should be

what do i want to achieve ?

if your after an easy mod that gives you more shots and refillable tanks - go with a 9oz CO2

if you want 800 fps+ go HPA

you need to be VERY aware that CO2 and HPA are very, very different beasts - you CANNOT use a co2 tank for HPA and HPA needs to be carefully regulated in a stock 2250 or you will blow yourself up !

the 2250 is designed for co2 and co2 pressures - it can run HPA and there have been some very successful mods done to run it - HOWEVER - it is not a recommended first mod and certainly not for the faint hearted.

to quote {imperfectly} the lads at B&A "IF you stuff up with co2 it finds a hole and goes hiss and you run out of gas - if you stuff up with HPA it finds a hole and explodes!"

Main recommendation is - research, research, research - ask the experts and make sure you can do what you think you can do.

finding out you have made a mistake with - HPA can be a very expensive and dangerous experiment- with co2 its just frustrating and slightly less expensive/dangerous.

Re: HPA vrs CO2

November 24 2008, 4:38 PM 

Whats the difference between hpa and co2 when they are regulated to the same pressure?

850psi of co2 seems just as bad as 850psi of hpa

quite a bit

November 24 2008, 6:53 PM 

density, expansion rates etc

i'm prob not the best person to answer as i play mostly with co2 - but co2 is stored usually in liquid form and expands in the chamber/valve when fired

HPA is stored as a compressed gas.

best to ask one of the folks doing HPA or dual fuel mods on 2250's - they can point you in the right direction.
