Thanks Craig,
Good read. Second comment from Sholo about the ball bearing on top of the trigger, "Drill a 3/32" hole 1/16" deep in the top of the trigger lobe, put a dab of grease/moly paste in the hole, and take the ball bearing from your safety (who uses the safety anyways, right?) and pop it in. Done deal! The ball bearing is much harder material than the trigger lobe and super smooth, plus there is a much smaller contact area between the two. Once you smoothen out the sear and polish it, it makes for a pretty nice trigger...well...for a 22xx trigger, anyways".
Has anyone on this site tried this for a lighter trigger and does it work?

I have not done the ball bearing - I've seen it before - someone here must have done it.   It should work.

What I have done in standard (non-Prod) trigger assemblies is re-contour the sear to a rounded surface operating on a spring guide (shortened clevis pin) in a light spring.

Both together should be a nice arrangement.

The metal trigger side cover plate Noah is referring to is made by Magnum Air Power (www.magnumairpower.com).   It is made of aluminum, plain or black anodized.
I have one from Magnumairpower on one of my 2240"s and it is top notch. Takes the bulge out when shimming.
The metal side cover makes a better plate over the plastic.

Early 22XX/13XX grip frames had a metal side plate, but they had 2 screws vs the current 3 screw plastic side plates.   Somewhere here on CAPOF is a write up.   Here is another:

There used to be a seller on eBay who made such covers, but I can't seem to find any today.

I need to know if any of the Crosman 22xx models or relatives have a metal side cover made by Crosman. If so what is model and part number.

Crosman air pistol - General discussion / Well, that's been a while

 :D

While I had done a little shooting with the Crosman CR357 a while back, "little" was the operative term.  The upside this past year has been a little .22 long rifle shooting, again "little".  ;D

I'd been trying the UBC Budget Comps with the only two contenders I had, a pair of rifles/carbines, a Crosman RM-377 and Crosman Quest 1000.  They were to be under $100 per their rules (and since I [/youtube] owned any of the Chinese B-3s - man I had one that would have really been good for that comp), that's what I was running.  Just don't know why the guy kept scoring the RM-377 as a pistol  ??? as it's really a rifle.

So, my trap was made for lower velocity stuff, like the Daisy 953, or the Crosman pistols.  After a few comps, the Quest 1000 put two pellets through the doubled over 26-gauge steel.  That took the trap out of commission, and me.

Finally, I acquired a piece of steel from The Home Depot and installed it on the back, as well of some Duct Seal, guess I'm just a believer in that stuff.

So, first shots into it in a number of months.  Took my time.  Three pumps to a pellet, five shots to a bullseye.  Oh happy days.

I have a copy of this trigger on my 2240.
It works along with a high buff and polish on the sear and hammer with a light spring and trigger stop.
