AirForce Talon SS PCP Air Rifle, Spin-Loc Tank

  • Teagan from USA asked:

    Why does the shroud seem to have so much effect on velocity? It seems like if I get a .25 caliber in anything shrouded it suddenly doesn't have the velocity or take down power for coyotes.

    • Stanley from USA:

      The shroud should have no effect on velocity i would think ? It is only for sound suppression . It might require a bigger caliber to take a coyote , like say a Texan in .357 caliber or .308 or something bigger like the .45 caliber? Only a guess ?

  • Kasey from USA asked:

    Is this gun a spiral bore or a smooth bore barrel?

    • Stanley from USA:

      It has a rifled barrel . Not smooth bore.

  • John from USA asked:

    I forgot to ask ... When a person goes to use CO2 in the Talon SS, which tank does he use for the shoulder stock so that the LOP stays the same?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Co2 tanks are larger in diameter than the regular HPA tank . Im not aware of any shoulder stock that fits these Co2 tanks . Good luck with that.

  • John from USA asked:

    Has anyone actually put the 18" barrel (of any caliber) into the Talon SS? Does it just look like the Talon with 6 inches of non-shrouded barrel sticking out at the muzzle? What I am really asking is does the "SoundLock" portion of the 12" shroud still perform if the 18" barrel is in the gun?

    • Stanley from USA:

      An 18 inch barrel will be even with the shroud and will not be suppressed , it can only be suppressed if the barrel is shorter than the shroud . I have a Talon-SS with a 24 inch barrel and it extends past the shroud 6 inches and is not suppressed. If you look at a Condor- SS it uses an 18 inch barrel but the shroud is long enough for the Sound-Loc to work (check out the measurements ) . The Talon-P has a shorter shroud so an 18 inch barrel would extend 6 more inches past the shroud and not be suppressed , and 24 inch would extend another 12 inches past the shroud .

  • Howie from USA asked:

    Will this rifle kill a deer or boar

    • Stanley from USA:

      It would take a great deal of luck as well as skill to do so. The condor and the talon only go as far as 25 caliber . I would suggest the texan which comes in three big bore calibers 45 , 30 , and 9mm. I'm sure one of those could do that.

  • Trung from USA asked:

    i come from viet nam , i want to buy Benjamin Marauder PCP Air Rifle, Synthetic Stock.22 caliber. can you transport ?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Call 888-262-4867 to talk to a sales rep. They could answer your question.

  • max from USA asked:

    Can the tank be taken off easily and put back on so I can throw it in a backpack like a take down airgun

    • Stanley from USA:

      With the spin-loc system it is a little more involved , just remember to bring the wrench that comes with the gun.I have the older ones the talon ss,condor,and talon-p and they just unscrew much easier.But yes it can be done.

  • Ricardo from USA asked:

    Don't know if to get the talon ss in .22 or .25

    • Stanley from USA:

      Well if you buy the .22 caliber then you could always buy the .25 caliber barrel and switch back and forth ? I have all four calibers .177 , .20 ,. 22 , and .25 thats what makes this gun so cool to own - the ability to change calibers in minutes. Also own the condor and the talon-p as well as the talon ss .

  • tanner from USA asked:

    .177 talon ss --- is it good for hunting I am thanking about getting a way from powder burners?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes it is a good choice for hunting , power ,changing calibers , very adjustable and accurate and quiet for a variety of situations . also cost less to shoot .

  • Martin from USA asked:

    Will I need ear protection? I plan on buying the 22 cal. Version.

    • Stanley from USA:

      No the SS model is very quiet . I got mine in .177 cal. sounds like a nail gun with a muffler . Unless you have sensitive hearing , not loud to me. I installed a 24 inch barrel and now it is louder , now a nail gun without a muffler.

  • Octavio from USA asked:

    Can I use a high flow condor bottle on a talon ss?

    • Stanley from USA:

      For proper operation you will need to purchase the striker weight # AirForce Striker Weight... it only runs 9.95. Pull the barrel out and install behind the spring.It changes a talon into a condor by having the weight hit the valve harder releasing more air.

  • Way from USA asked:

    Because of where I live, the attribute of "quiet" in an airgun is of supreme importance. Regarding how much noise a Talon SS or a Condor SS makes, describing the noise as "3-Medium" and "kinda loud" is too ambiguous to be helpful for me. Are there any reliable outdoor dB numbers available? Thanks!

    • Nicholas from USA:

      Talon SS in .22 is about 99Dbi. Smaller calibers are LOUDER so you may want to go up to .25

    • Stanley from USA:

      Articles i have read say the condor SS is around 99.5 DB's in 22 caliber so I'm sure a .177 caliber in the talon SS with sound-loc would be queiter . My hatsan QE Long in 22 caliber is rated at 68 DB's. Just a comparison .

  • Duane from USA asked:

    How long or how many pumps does it talke to full from 2000 to 3000 psi with a pump?

    • Nicholas from USA:

      Using a Benjamin hand pump I went from 0-2900 PSI, using 2 second strokes (1 up and 1 down) took 15 minutes not counting 2 breaks to allow the pump to cool. Going back from 2k -3k is usually only 5 minutes of 2-second pumps

    • Stanley from USA:

      In my experience I've never actually counted but i would say at least 100 to 150 pumps. I never completely empty my tank that way it doesn't take so long to fill it. I f I'm going to shoot a lot i bring an extra tank.Its a great work out though to fill an empty tank! They say 400 to 500 pumps from empty.

  • tom from USA asked:

    When the safety button in a safe position, the striker could be stuck, then, the safety button on the back of less than a firing position

    • Stanley from USA:

      Mine has the original safety , 12 years old now. No issues so far , works as designed. Can be decocked without having to fire a round.

  • John from USA asked:

    Re: .177 cal. Talon SS,-- How much effect does the power wheel have on velocity? Does it actually reduce velocity to around 500 fops for indoor shooting? I have read comments that it basically has no effect on velocity on the newer models.

    • Nicholas from USA:

      The power wheel is for fine adjustments. For greater changes (600-800FPS) you may need to make adjustments to the top hat or install an o-ring behind the top hat

    • Stanley from USA:

      The only real way to answer this question is to chrony test each setting of the power wheel to get a true idea of the effect of the wheel on velocity.Another way is to purchase a Co2 adaptor i understand that velocities are reduced 400 to 500 F.P.S. which would be ideal for indoor shooting.

  • tom from USA asked:

    I want to know the length, height, width of the talon ss frame ?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Overall length with tank is 32 3/4 inches , frame only is 22 inches long , the widest point measured at 1 1/2 inches and is 7 inches tall.Tank is 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 13 1/2 inches long.

  • RICH from USA asked:

    HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT FILLING THE AIR RESERVOIR?CAN A COMMERCIAL AIR COMPRESSOR BE USED TO FILL THE IT?

    • Stanley from USA:

      You can use a pump made by air force or a carbon fiber tank that is refillable.A commercial air compressor doesn't produce enough pressure to fill it , you would need a special compressor that cost 3000.00 to do the job, and then you could fill the refillable tank and fill the reservoir.

  • Mark from USA asked:

    If you get a .25 caliber rifle, can you buy other caliber barrels for it?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes other calibers are available.Changing calibers only takes less than ten minutes.

  • Robert from USA asked:

    Which connecter is needed for filling the SS with the Hill pump?

    • Nicholas from USA:

      If it is a spin-loc tank you will not need an additional connector

    • Andrew from USA:

      how to fill the air for talon ss without removing the air reservoir

    • Tyler from USA:

      Enter this in the search "PY-A-4926" That is what you need

  • Gregory from USA asked:

    Does The Talon SS 25 cal come with a HI-Flow tank or a standard one ?

    • Tyler from USA:

      It comes with the standard Tank

  • Scott from USA asked:

    Does this Talon SS come with sound-loc baffles installed or is that an option?

    • Nicholas from USA:

      The "SS" indicates the gun includes sound-loc baffle pre-installed

    • Gregory from USA:

      Yes, mine did. That's what the SS stands for super silent.

  • john from USA asked:

    Shots per fil?

    • Nicholas from USA:

      on the lowest power, upwards of 100. Max power, maybe 30-40. There's no point in using max power with the 12" barrel, the pellet will be long gone before the valve finishes releasing air.

    • Val from USA:

      anywhere from 50 to 100 shots per fill depending on the power setting you use
