When I opened up my box from @Raventree and pulled out my Crosman 2240, the first thing I thought was, “This looks like Han Solo’s blaster from Star Wars!”

Turns out I wasn’t the only one thinking that. Check out this cool (and short) YouTube vid I found on a modded 2240.

I just found out that there is an airguns subforum here 😳🏄

Very great pistol!

Some time ago I thought that in the USA there would not be much interest in airguns since you have access to firearms, but I see that there is an interest.
Oh yes, we’re certainly a people with a wide range of interests and hobbies! This is a brand new hobby to me and there’s a lot of interest out there for airguns from what I’ve seen so far.

very nice,like that pump handle/hand guard
It makes pumping so much easier - especially with the scope. The pump handles on these new 1377 are so flimsy and have sharp edges.
I can't claim credit for the grip, I found the design on a Russian 3D model sharing site.
The aluminium thing on the back is a shoulder stock adaptor, in the photo the gun is fitted with a counter-weight to balance the CofG when the silencer is fitted as it's too muzzle heavy otherwise. I have made a rod shoulder stock which fits in there instead, it has quite a long reach so that I can still use the long eye relief pistol scope with the stock attached.
These 1377 are very accurate, with the shoulder stock I can make a single raggedy edged hole at 10yds.
