This 2240XL features our 1/2″ UNF Polycarbonate silencer, Dr. Murfee mount, folding bipod, 4×32 compact scope with high rise rings, and an adjustable 6 position stock. The stock adapter and buffer tube assembly can be seen in more detail below:
The buffer tube is 3D printed in ABS and all the other parts are steel. This particular setup allows for an 11″ to 14.5″ length of pull.
My son, Beaux, loves to shoot the Daisy Buck, but he can shoot much more accurately than the airgun can. I gave him this airgun set up at 11″ LOP and we saw a MAJOR improvement in accuracy and the airgun is actually easier for him to handle than the Daisy. Unfortunately, I had to take it away after he tried to take out a bird that landed on our fence…
It’ll be a bit before I start selling these. When I do it’ll be a complete kit at a great price.
Just a quick update on my latest projects. I’ve wrapped up the Daisy Red Ryder scope mount design and have moved on to the Crosman 2240. I have received a few requests to make a Suppressor for the Crosman DPMS SBR Full-Auto. I finally got one and will be working on that soon. I’m also taking a look at the Crosman PFM16 and Umarex SA10.
The 2240 Suppressor is very simple. It requires you to remove the stock front sight by just tapping it off with a hammer and piece of wood. Then you just press the suppressor on by hand with the front sight aligned. The only unique feature is the integrated front sight post. It is very similar to the 1322 Silencer on the inside in that it is round and has cone-shaped baffles.
The 2240 barrel has a flat ground on it that I used as an alignment feature for the front sight. I’m currently testing the Suppressor with various front sight post heights. I’m thinking that I might make it a bit on the high side. That way, it’ll cover close range shooting(if that’s your thing), but it could also be sanded down for longer range shooting. A benefit of the common ABS plastic blend used in 3D printing is that it dissolves in acetone. You can sand down the front sight post and use a paintbrush to coat the abraded surface with acetone to give it a smooth finish.
The Crosman Scope Mounts have really proven to be a hit. I didn’t imagine that they would be so popular. I’m grateful for all the feedback. The mounts are self-aligning on the 13XX and on the 2240. Check out the Crosman 2240 with the Suppressor, Scope Mounts, and Hawkeye Reflex Sight mounted below:
It may not look like it, but the cap and CO2 cartridge can be removed without removing the suppressor. Once the weather clears up outside here in Houston, TX I’ll shoot a little test video.
