Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most value added This kit upgrade is amazing value added for your 1322. I used one of the tutorials on Youtube to mod my 1322 and it was super easy. I was able to mount a Reflex red dot sight. This was the main reason why I wanted to upgrade. Now my sight rests rock solid on the rail. NOTE: You will need the 11mm to 22mm dovetail adapter for most sights so pay attention when shopping for accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Important Upgrade I bought a Crosman 1322 for plinking but I was surprise by how accurate it is. The factory sight is not very good (the weak link) and I wanted to upgrade it to improve performance. The steel breech is a necessary upgrade of you want to improve the sight. I wanted to add a reflex type sight and this cannot be done with the plastic breech so … steel breech it is. The product was easy enough to install; however, the instructions were near useless and this is the reason for only four stars. For one thing the instructions (a one page black and white sheet) did not show installation of the steel breech on my pistol (model 1322) so I found a video on You Tube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but assembly a little tricky Glad to get the steel breech but one should know two things before ordering. First the original sight will not work so one has to use one of the better sights crossman sells (I had one on a .177 that I swapped over—a great improvement btw). Second, fitting the barrel back with the transfer port held properly is a little tricky and not explained at all in the instructions. No doubt there is a YouTube video to help but I had to do it wrong once and then get it right. With those two qualifications it’s a very desirable upgrade.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Honest steel breach review I bought the steel breach to do some mods to my 2240. The steel breach works as it should there was nothing wrong with it. The directions on installing it are completely worthless. You will want to watch a YouTube video if this is your first time doing something like this. The bolt is no longer brass but a blued metal and it will pop up when you fire the pistol. You will also need to watch that the handle doesn’t come lose. Why two stars? I don’t know that it is worth it. I put a red dot on mine but, I prefer open sights. The rear sight cost more than the breach did and I have an issue paying that. Truthfully I would not by this again. If I had it to do over I would just enjoy the 2240 the way it comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.
