Steel Breech Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.Rated 5 out of 5 by hugh from Crosman Steel Breech most important upgrade This steel breech kit is in my opinion the single most important upgrade you can install on your Crosman. This breech will enable you to install optics on a rock solid base. I am referring to the 3/8 dovetail machined into the top of the breech.It will also give you a superior mounting base for a longer steel barrel. I prefer the long breech when installing a longer barrel. There are several you tube videos that will teach you how to install your new breech. Crosman includes a shorter screw to replace the original screw that goes through your rear sight. It is important that you use this screw so you breech will operate smoothly.Date published: 2017-10-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Motorhead from An absolute must have! This upgrade not only allows for mounting a dovetail, there are a number of other ways to accomplish this, it is also the single largest improvement you can make. Why they aren't standard I can only guess at but I'm fairly sure it has to do with cost and keeping it down. The breach is solid as a rock when installed correctly and allows for better accuracy from barrel stabilization, coupled with an aftermarket barrel band, such as the 2289 Backpacker's or one of the pricier brass or stainless versions. Add to this some NOS old school 1322 barrel trim spacer trim and you have a very solidly mounted barrel. I won't go into the numerous other up grades except to mention extended probe bolts. None of this is possible without this one simple upgrade and everything else mentioned here is quick and simple with huge gains in CONSISTENT accuracy!Date published: 2017-07-18Rated 5 out of 5 by SlowHand from Excellent 1st Upgrade I recently rediscovered air guns because of my grandson. i bought a Crosman 2240 to shoot with him while he was busy plinking cans. Since then I have discovered a huge amount of upgrades for the 2240 so I'm converting mine to a carbine complete with scope. If you're wanting to upgrade a 2240, the steel breech is a good place to start. It adds weight to the gun, and provides much needed rails to add a scope or red dot to. You do lose the original back iron sights but they're not needed if you're adding a scope. If you do decide to add iron rear sights, be aware they are costly.Date published: 2017-12-18Rated 1 out of 5 by Boz50 from Didn’t work I have returned this to Crosman for a refund as it did not work on my gun. I carefully followed instructions and when done the bolt would not close. I know what I’m doing with mechanics as I am a former Jet mechanic and a machinist.Date published: 2018-07-06Rated 4 out of 5 by mwsalter from Good product While the breech kit was of good quality, the instructions suck. They were small print, and not for the 1322. I recommend finding the YouTube video for more detailed installation instructions.Date published: 2017-06-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Jjchvl from Great upgrade The steel breech is pretty much a mandatory upgrade for anyone who takes their pellet gun hobby even sort of seriously. It makes a world of difference in several functional ways which others have listed better than I could. Buying directly from Crosman also saved me money from all the scalpers who buy Crosman out of these and then stick em on Amazon or Ebay for $15-$20 more. If you see these breech kits in stock here on Crosman Web site then I'd advise you to grab one before the scalpers buy Crosman out of them again. I will also add my opinion that Crosman should include the steel breech on the pistols the breech fits(and use to do so, I believe). It's too bad that you have to buy an "add on" just to reach a quality level that use to be standard.Date published: 2017-09-22Rated 4 out of 5 by midnightair from want a scope? longer barrel? get this. If you're ready to start modifications to your 13xx, this is a good first purchase. I give it 4 stars because it should be a standard feature on the 13xx and I feel it costs a bit too much as an add on. If you are uncomfortable taking your gun apart then stick with the plastic breech. You really don't "need" this unless you are getting on that upgrade train!!!!!!!!!!!Date published: 2017-06-06Rated 1 out of 5 by billw385 from Guess I got a bad one My wife,( bless her heart), ordered me two Crosman 2240's and a steel breech kit along with a LPA rear site for fathers day this year. 2018. I installed the steel breech kit on to one of the 2240's, I tightened everything down good and tight only to find out that the dovetail machined in to the steel breech kit was machined to large to properly mount the LPA rear site. Now I will have to mount a scope on the pistol and not be able to use open sites. I prefer open sites so I guess I'll be putting the plastic breech back on to do so. My wife ordered both 2240's and the steel breech kit along with the LPA rear site from Airgun Depot, seems to be a quality control problem with the steel breech or perhaps the wrong rear site was sent with the order. Either way I will only be ordering directly from Crosman from now on. Lesson learned! Now I have to jump through a bunch of hoops to get the breech replaced from Airgun Depot.Date published: 2018-06-29
