AirForce Talon SS PCP Air Rifle, Spin-Loc Tank

  • 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.

  • Michelle 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!

    • 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?

    • 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.

    • 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:


    • 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?

    • 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?

    • Gregory from USA:

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

  • john from USA asked:

    Shots per fil?

    • Val from USA:

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