The AirForce Talon on CO2 delivers up to 775 fps (in .177). This air rifle offers extreme flexibility along with continued great accuracy (1" at 50 yards...or better!). The power wheel, although intended for use with the gun on high-pressure air, still has a slight amount of adjustability running on CO2. Since the rifle has NO recoil, you can comfortably shoot all day long without the fatigue and pain associated with spring-piston rifles.
From its Lothar Walther barrel (1:16 twist) to its removable tank, the Talon is the standard for state-of-the-art manufacturing of air rifles. Made of space-age polymers and aircraft-grade aluminum, the AirForce Talon is lightweight and equipped with a durable finish.
The removable tank does double-duty as the butt of the gun, contributing to its light weight and convenience.
Not sure which caliber to get? Get both! Extra barrels are available, and change-outs are quick and easy and don't require any special tools.
The benefits of shooting a Talon on CO2:
Over 1,000 shots per CO2 tank
Ideal for shooting indoors
Easy to switch to air
No handpump or scuba tank required
If you want to also shoot your Talon on air, you'll need to order an AirForce air tank and a way to fill the tank (scuba tank, handpump or electric pump). All items are listed in the ACCESSORIES links.
.177 cal delivers 14.01 ft-lbs or 18.99 joules
.22 cal delivers 14.261 ft-lbs or 19.33 joules
There are lots of ways to configure this gun, including rail-mounted accessories (coin-slot screws for each changeout). You can choose the scope, laser, flashlight, night vision equipment, extra tanks and quick-detach fiber-optic sights.
The Talon can use a very wide variety of pellets and round balls. Have a look at our suggestions in the AMMO link. Click the ACCESSORIES link to find scopes, targets, pumps and other nifty gear for your Talon.

Things I liked: Has a top quality barrel and very nicely made, but the plastic forearm and pistol grip have a cheap plastic look . Once tuned, it can shoot tiny groups at 50 yards.
Things I would have changed: Comes without any sort of buttplate - slips off the shoulder easily. Pistol grip is uncomfortable (too small ). Trigger / safety design could be a lot better. CO2 is slow. HPA is better for hunting.
What others should know: This thing is LOUD on HPA. I SHOULD have bought a Benji Marauder - better trigger, better ergos, repeater and quiet. If you like tuning and tinkering these airguns are for you. I will be selling mine The Airforce airguns where special when first introduced, now they need refined to compete.
