I bought this single shot bolt action co2 pistol because I just love Crossman and its heritage (with Benjamin as well) I was informed of its high power output and liked the price which varies from £77 to £99. I dont agree that its high powered as co2 is so temperature sensitive in our current climate its hard to judge the muzzle velocity I would not use it for hunting or dispatch as it is advertised as being the rat buster pistol. I do like the recoiless shooting and with a silencer it is… Read Full Review

I love crossman their guns stand for fun and quality, I own the 1377 and the 2240. I am amazed by the mods available and cant wait to mod the 2240.Straight from the carton the 2240 is small and light and fits the hand perfectly, the cocking mechanism is sure and secure as is the safety although its made from plastic. This gun is mighty powerful but is way too loud without a silencer. I got a silencer adaptor and with a silencer it is whisper quiet in fact all you can hear is the hammer and a… Read Full Review

if you can have only one air pistol, make it this one. The power is fine with more modifications available than you have money for. The rear sight sucks, its plastic which is ok, but the adj. is terrible, but once you do get sighted in, it stays that way. the trigger is fine and so is the noise level, I like the grips.
I get 45 strong shots per powerlet and can hit within 1" at 5 meters free hand, perfect for back yard bird feeders (starlings), you can't beat .22cal. for humane kills. This is… Read Full Review

Crosman folks know how to make good shooting cheap air pistols if my example is typical of this pistol. My example shots heavier pellet through my F1 chrony around 430fps and lighter pellets like Beeman Lazers around 475fps so it's safe to say Crosmans claims of 460fps are valid.At less than $60.00 this pistol is a real bargin. I am getting old and don't shoot pistols very often but after putting a few drops of yellow paint on the front and rear sights so I could see them properly I was able… Read Full Review

The Crosman 2240 Ratbuster is the best Co2 pistol in the world by a mile. Its not only a brilliant tool out the packet it has the largest modifying and custom/tuning following of any air pistol out there. The sky is the limit with modifying these pistols and the internet is full of sites dedicated to getting the best out of them. Mine is running just under 6ft/lb's on a hot day and is so satisfying and accurate to shoot, its got real wallop for an air pistol, pick one up for £70 and spend a… Read Full Review

The 2240 is a nice little popper for plinking and ridding your yard of pest. It works well on mice and small rats. It's not much for a one shot tree-rat kill but a well placed shot will bring them down out of a tree. Use the "PowerMax-HiPAC" to get all of the one shot kill power you need from the stock 2240. The "PowerMax" is a bulk-fill adaptor designed specially for the Crosman 2240. The "NO MOD" solution to Bulk-Fill.
CO2/N2/HPA can all be used with the HiPAC cylinder. Find it at… Read Full Review

I bought this gun with "modding" in mind. I read many reviews on a lot of pistols and picked this one based on availability of mods for it.
(The reason I wanted to Mod a pistol is that I love to target shoot and owning a "real" hand gun in Canada is very difficult.)
I actually LOVED this gun right out of the package! It shot accuratly , had good power, and felt well balanced in my hand. And the price!!! Wow!
Since I don't hunt ,my goal was to make this a very good target pistol. Here's what… Read Full Review

The Crosman 2240 an excellent CO2 pistol. I bought this to shoot vermin such as grey squirrels rats and small mustelids caught in live traps ,( they can bite through leather gloves !)It's also useful for knocking down crows etc in large cage traps It fulfils this job perfectly. It's light to carry around and easy to use. It looks good , though I'm not too keen on the plastic breech and grips but I'm told they can be modded . It's accurate ( I use Bisley super field and can hit an empty 12 bore… Read Full Review

I got this Crosman 2240 pistol a week and a half ago. As soon as I pulled it out of the box I noticed it had a good heft to it. I put co2 in it and started shooting. I noticed it had a nice pop and a little bit of a jump to it. From about 10yards I hit a pop can every time. It goes all the way through a can and then some. It has been cold where I live and im not getting as many shots per co2 canister as I should. But I just hold my hand around the co2 tube. I noticed that once the co2 gets low… Read Full Review

Well, I bought one. Based on what I read here, it was a no brainer. Since childhood, I've have always leaned towards Crosman products. Now, later in life, the product is not nearly as well built as it used to be. Enter the Crosman 2240 CO2 pistol. I picked this up today for some general target shooting. Right out of the package it was shooting great. Adjusted the sights for windage to bring the shots left, and she was dead on. My basement is small, so I only had a distance of 12 feet from… Read Full Review

Great target practice air gun. Also useful for shooting over the heads of bears in my yard, the noise alone runs them off. Stray dogs too, bent on grabbing one of my cats. I use ammo which would not penitrate an animal's skin, and when I use my 2240 to scare them off from going after my pets, no physical harm will come to them. I enjoy seeing the bears, and only use my gun when they do not turn around and leave when they see me… Read Full Review

I purchased two of these so I could learn to modify the gun, using the 2ed gun for spare parts. The gun is simple and so much fun to soup up. It's a real CAT KILLER (ferrel cats only). Longer barrel, made better grips, reworked the valve, red dot sight, and more. Topped out at 575 fps @ 85 degrees. I'm loving it… Read Full Review
