Crosman 1377 or 2240 trigger pull weight too heavy? Here's how to improve it.

The Crosman 1377 and 2240 are excellent air pistols. But one very common complaint is that the factory trigger pull weight is much too heavy, typically well over 5 lbs.

The Archer Airguns 13/22 SuperSear solves this problem simply and easily, reducing the trigger pull weight on these pistols by around 2 lbs - that's a huge 40% improvement!

And it's easy to install yourself with no adjustments required...



The 13/22 SuperSear is installed by simply removing the right side pistol grip, removing the factory sear and replacing it. Full instructions are included with the kit. The included stainless steel washers help to center the sear and trigger, removing the objectionable side-to-side "slop" that's felt in the factory trigger assembly.

Note that the Archer Airguns 13/22 SuperSear is designed for use with UNMODIFIED Crosman 1377 and 2240-type air pistols. It may not work - or even be dangerous - if installed in combination with other trigger modifications such as weaker sear springs. If you've already made other trigger mods to your pistol, please don't add a 13/22 SuperSear!


We tested the trigger pull weight of two new, unmodified, Crosman air pistols (one 1377 and one 2240) both in standard factory condition and with the 13/22 SuperSear installed. Here's some test data that shows the huge improvement in trigger pull weight provided by the 13/22 SuperSear.



As you can see, the 13/22 SuperSear transformed these air pistols from having a trigger pull weight of over well over 5 lbs, down to below 4 lbs. This, together with the improved "feel" of the new sear, aids accuracy considerably when shooting.

Also, the 13/22 SuperSear reduced the shot-to-shot variation in trigger pull weight by over 10%, making trigger pull more predictable and again aiding in practical shooting accuracy.

If you want to make one simple, easy and predictable improvement to the trigger of your new Crosman 1377 or 2240 air pistol, the Archer Airguns 13/22 SuperSear could be your best choice!
