It would be really cool I'd he offered wood for the 840.

That early metal receiver 840 would probably be a pretty sweet little gun with a slightly longer stock in wood.

This IS NOT your Father's 2100...

Thinking about how heavy my legacy 1000 is with the phase III 766 reciever and a decent scope. That 2100 with wood must have some heaft to it, right?

Not at all... The wood is mesquite. Just a nice solid feeling rifle. I have a couple more that have walnut on them.

crosman 2100 ,2200 for the better trigger , the last 880 variant I had was a SG22 iirc, opened it up and when i saw that the trigger spring was shared with the action I moved on. How can you lighten the trigger on a 880 ???

There is certainly a way to lighten the 880 trigger.....more than one way actually. I have not bothered to do more than remove that useless flat spring above the valve assembly. There are more things you can do. Perhaps one of the 880 fans will chime in. Trigger mods for the 880 have been posted on here ad nauseam.

Oh ok. I was wondering about that. Mine felt like it was staring to get to the weight of a full size, wooden stock springer.

Yea, there is some good trigger info in the Daisy gate. Personally I have no problem with the trigger on my 880. I've experienced and practiced with worse.

I wouldn't use BBs in either, so it is all about pellet loading.... Thus the 880 all the way.  Far easier to load.

If I want an easy-loading Crosman, just about everything is easier than the 2100, and my current 760 with a rifled barrel is every bit as accurate as my last 2100.

I don't have experience with the 880, but I have a 2100 and it's a pretty amazing value and accurate gun. It has a simple mechanism and is very easy and cheap to tinker and tune once you get the hang of opening and closing it. Looks killer with a scope too. (Oops, bad word choice!)
