The AirForce Talon SS on CO2 delivers up to 700 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 SS is the standard for state-of-the-art manufacturing of air rifles. Made of space-age polymers and aircraft-grade aluminum, it's lightweight and equipped with a durable finish. The tank does double-duty as the butt of the gun, contributing to its light weight and convenience.
Not sure which caliber to get? Get all of them! Extra barrels are available, and change-outs are quick and easy and don't require any special tools.
The Talon SS is the same basic rifle as the Talon, but an integral suppressor and a 12" barrel are standard.
The benefits of shooting a Talon SS 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 SS 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 11.43 ft-lbs or 15.49 joules
.22 cal delivers 11.82 ft-lbs or 16.02 joules
There are lots of ways to configure this gun, including rail-mounted accessories (coin-slot screws for each changeout). You can choose the laser, flashlight, night vision equipment, extra tanks and quick-detach fiber-optic sights. If you replace the barrel with a longer one, the gun will not be silenced.
The Talon SS 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 SS.

Things I liked: I can't say enough good about this gun! I have the .177 CO2. I have other air rifles but this one has shown me that I really can shoot. It is very accurate!! Very easy to shoot.
Things I would have changed: Find a way to cover the CO2 tank with an insulating material like a foam sleeve so that it doesn't feel so cold on my cheek. Find a way to put a shoulder bracket on it as on the air tank version.
What others should know: Get a spare, pre-filled tank when you order. They're pretty affordable. You'll be able to continue shooting while waiting for a re-fill.
