You should open the gun, look at the heating element and see if you can find a 110V version.
There are plenty on eBay (https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1311.R1.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.Xhot+air+heating+element.TRS0&_nkw=hot+air+gun+heating+element&_sacat=0)

But the current will be higher. The controller board must support it (and the fuse).

I'm starting to think it would be easier to just sell it to someone in 240V land or even just cut your losses and give it to them for the cost of postage and buy a 120V version. Or use a stepup transformer, or make an adapter to get 240V from two branch circuits on opposing sides of the panel.
