By Kenny from USA on 2012-01-16 09:30:47Things I liked:Everything - the barrel is perfect from chamber to muzzle
Things I would have changed:A little lower price, that's it.
What others should know:Fitting this on a Talon or Talon SS with a standard Talon valve, will, if turned up, make most pellet break the sound barrier, which will make most pellets become unstable.

By Karl from USA on 2015-03-08 13:10:07Things I liked:Very easy to install. Comes with barrel bushings and end cap. Barrel seems smooth when pulling a patch through it.
Things I would have changed:Seems a little expensive for a replacement barrel, but then again, if you are using the AirForce platform, there are not too many alternatives.
What others should know:Bought this barrel to install on a Talon which was purchased in February 2014. Never could get the original 18" .22 barrel to shoot to my expectations even though the gun had been sent back to AirForce for testing/inspection. This .177 barrel looks like it may be a little more accurate than the 18" .22 barrel. I'm getting 1150 fps with an 8.4 grain pellet at a 3000 psi fill and a power wheel setting of zero. This is far too fast to expect decent accuracy and the rifle shoots best around 1800 to 1200 psi where velocities are in the low 900's to upper 800's. At a power wheel setting of zero, with a 3000 psi fill and shooting down to 1000 psi, got a total of 144 shots. Still some POI shift as the gun is shot down, but not as evident as with the original .22 barrel
