Benjamin EB22 vs. Crosman 2240

I'm almost ready to pull the trigger. What do you guys think of the Benjamin EB22? I know the 2240 has a cult following, and I'm sure for good reason, so it the current favorite, but what about the Benjamin EB22?

Nice compact holster gun

July 30 2009, 9:26 PM 

I like them for the size, small enough to carry in a holster. The trigger could use some help no where as good as a tuned 2240 trigger IMO. The 2240 is a great gun and I shoot it 100 times more but not a holster gun.

Love that shiney pistola!

I love those chrome EBs. There is something nice about a compact CO2 pistol. The Crosman 150s are another fine example, but no where near as pretty.

"but I'll be needin' that gun, fer squirrels and such."

I have two of the Sheridan E20 pic of #2

July 30 2009, 10:19 PM 

They were a limited production only made in 1990 special serial range of EOOXXXX. They have a squared off breech unlike the Benjamin rounded breech. Fun gun to shoot but loud thats why I hardly shoot them. I may consider selling or trading one.

EB22 ...

July 30 2009, 10:49 PM 

The EB22 is one of the smallest CO2 pistols around, considerably smaller than your typical 2240. As the previous posted pointed out, it's a great carry gun and fits easily into a holster. If you camp or fish the EB is a good choice. It's compact and since it's made mostly of brass and stainless steel it's somewhat rust resistant.

In stock form the EB is moderately powerful and loud. Tuning options for the EB are limited but you can improve the trigger and tweak the valve and springs for a little more power. If you're really into tuning/modding or need max power the 2240 wins hands down (mainly because you can fit them with a long barrel). Having said that, I really like the EB. I have one that I home tuned and it's a surprisingly accurate little powerhouse. It's real lively with a big bark and noticable muzzle flip (the bloody thing recoils like a small caliber firearm). For me it's a blast to shoot because it sounds/feels like a firearm. Definately not back yard friendly though.

Find an Old Benjamin 250 or 257

That Sheridan is based on the MUCH SMALLER Benjamin co2 pistol of the fifties! The old Benji could fit in the back pocket of a par of Levi's! How? They used the old 8gm bulb, for one thing.
