1. steel breech
2. barrel upgrade
3. transfer port
4. power adjuster
5. valve rework (or upgrade)

OR if you want a carbine: crosman or aftermarket stock

you're scared ? go get a dog ... I'd rather die standing than live on my knees

top 5

#1. Trigger job. Really needs a better trigger, so you can either tune/adjuste it yourelf or buy one of the aftermarket kits and install that. Is #1 becasue it makes that big a differnce.
#2. Steel breech. Even if you never mount a scope/red to, having athe barrel to breech connection be more solid and stable pays off in accuracy.
#3. Test the issue barrel. If needed, lap it and recrown it. Only after giving it every chance would I look for an aftermarket barrel. If you like lighter weight, then look for an Al. breech.
#4. Better sights. Kind of goes with #2, as you need the steel breech. Better iron if that's your urge, scope or red dot if you don't mind non-tradtioanl pistol sights.
#5. "Power adjuster". It really sets the tension of the striker spring. Will find that the best setting for wummer isn't the best setting for winter, but with the right setting, a 2240 is quite useful down into the upper 40's.

Make sure you start with a custom shop pistol

May 24 2011, 9:27 PM 

I'm assuming you want .22 caliber

If you want the pistol, be sure do a custom shop order so you're starting off with the metal breech and factory 10.1" barrel...the 10.1" is a restricted length that Crosman will not sell individually. You can always buy the 7.5" barrel from anyone here cheap (or from Crosman directly), and the 14.5" barrel from the 2250 is $15ish from Crosman.

Plus if you get the custom shop gun, it comes with an special trigger pull spring adjuster under the grip, and a trigger overtravel screw in the grip frame.

For mods...

#1 is always a TKO muzzlebreak
#2 is a power adjuster, I like the one sold by Arts Shack
#3 is probably an extended length bolt and upgraded handle
#4 is probably a replacement safety pin to get rid of the plastic one
#5 is often Grips. RB grips is nice for wood. Also, be sure you have the Crosman 1399 plastic stock, its helpful just for sighting in purposes too.

Then I will go with...

May 25 2011, 8:10 AM 

10" or 12" barrel.
LONG steel breech to give you more sight/scope mounting options.
Power adjuster, the hammer/striker preload adjuster.
Aftermarket trigger mod to lighten pull, I like the AoA 2 stage sear.
Extended pellet probe.

a question

May 25 2011, 12:01 PM 

What would you be using this pistol for the most? Hunting/pest control? Informal plinking? target competition?
If this is for hunting/pest control, then you need to mod your valve, or buy a hot valve, and a longer barrel.
A lot of the other replies are good, and I'd go with any of the recommendations.

my go to 22xx resource

Roy is a great guy to deal with. His work is top notch, I bought my 2240 from him. AND had him work his magic on my 2250B.
A "hot" valve is kind of a generic term for one that's been modded for power.

I have both MA and B&A...

May 25 2011, 6:41 PM 

both work, both are good; way better than stock Crosman. I recommend an HDD (Airguns of Arizona I think) for better shot count and more consistent performance.

And... what others said.
