#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.
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.
#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.
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.

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.
