Crosman 2260 rifle
« on: January 30, 2010, 02:44:14 PM »
I have owned the PCP's  Discovery and Maruader and been happy with both. I recently purchased a Crosman 2260 CO2 rifle mostly because of it's low price, hoping it would be another good Airgun. Well, I am impressed. The 2260 is a very basic unit sharing the same plastic trigger as the Disco. Accuracy with 22 caliber  RWS superdomes is excellent. My disco and mrod did not shoot RWS well, but maybe because of the lower velocity CO2, these things shoot one hole at 30 feet. A lot quieter than my Disco when shooting indoors. Gets about 30-35 shots per 12 grams of co2 before I notice velocity dropping off.  The peep sight is a cheap affair, but once adjusted works OK. Mine needed to be all the way left to shoot center of the bull. Changed the spring in the trigger to a lighter one- noticed some improvement, but it will always be a plastic. The 2260 is light, but points well for me. I like the balance better than the Disco or mrod. Been having a great time plinking in the garage while winter is in full bloom outside. I am very happy with my not so expensive ($86), not too refined, but very accurate Crosman.

I think the 2260 is under rated and a real bargain.  I really like the look and feel of the thing.  You can gain a few fps with a long nose bolt.  I like to polish up the breech cone and knock the sharp edges off the transfer port:  feeding is a little smoother and the pellets get less nicked up.  Some cleanup and polish of the sear engagement points along with some good grease can make the trigger much nicer.  Enjoy!

I'm gonna pick up one of these in a week or two. There is a great article here: http://www.spiralsol.com/airgunmod/tipstricks.asp that shows how to make the trigger adjustable.
