Equipped with the new Sound-Loc suppressor!

Power! Up to 1000 fps (in .177). Accuracy! 1" at 50 yards. NO recoil! Built in the USA, the Talon SS pre-charged pneumatic air rifle is for serious shooting. Field target, hunting, punching paper targets, shooting spinners and plinking are all perfect for the Talon SS...because it does everything so well! The easy-to-use power-adjust wheel takes your rifle from 400 fps to 1000 fps. You decide how much power you want and when you want it. If you're shooting field target...dial it down. Hunting...dial it up.

From its Lothar Walther barrel (1:16 twist) to its removable air tank, the Talon SS is the standard for state-of-the-art manufacturing of pre-charged pneumatics. Made of space-age polymers and aircraft-grade aluminum, the AirForce Talon SS is lightweight and equipped with a durable finish.

The removable 490cc air tank (DOT-certified) can be filled with a hand pump, scuba tank or electric compressor to 3000 psi (206 bar) for lots of shots without a refill. The tank does double-duty as the butt of the gun, contributing to its light weight and convenience. The tank has a pressure-release valve for additional safety.

Thanks to the new Spin-Loc tank and collar, you don't have to remove the gun's air reservoir to fill it. Of course, if you want to, you can remove it easily and attach another one. Carrying an extra filled tank when shooting in the field is a lot easier than carrying a scuba or carbon fiber tank for refills.

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 shorter barrel makes it slightly lighter than the Talon, and the integral suppressor seriously reduces the report.

You'll need an adapter to fill the reservoir with air. The type of adapter depends on how you plan to fill your gun. A scuba tank will require a different adapter than a hand pump or carbon fiber tank. If you use a hand pump, the type of adapter you need depends on the brand of hand pump you use.

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, quick-detach fiber-optic sights and attachments for the type of refilling unit you plan to use. 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: Let me start off by saying the Talon SS is an amazingly accurate air gun. It is extremely well-balanced and comfortable to hold and shoot. Aside from some issues (which I discuss below), the gun is very nice. My gun will consistently produce 1/4 inch, 5-shot groups at 35 yards when placed in a Predator MTM rest. These Lothar Walter barrels are worth every penny AND THEN SOME! The most accurate pellets in my gun are H&N Baracudas 21.13gr (5.51mm head) and JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.13gr. Also, there are 35 accurate shots available before the tank needs to be topped off to 3,000 psi. Also, this gun does not show any POI shift between shooting sessions. I had a Marauder, and this was a total pain in the butt having to adjust the scope every time I went to shoot. I really like this gun.

Things I would have changed: The previous version of these guns had a dull-colored rubbery grip that was very nice to hold. The current version of AirForce guns have a shiny rubbery grip, that is more slick. I think they changed this to better match the finish of the metal, but it is not as nice to hold. The main issue with the current Airforce guns has to do with the Power Wheel. Basically, it has no effect on velocity. I have tried 3 different guns, and the power wheel had no effect on any of them. Tom's excellent review of the original Talon SS shows a nice range of velocities available by adjusting the power wheel. This simply does not exist with the current guns. My chrony indicates a velocity spread of about 30fps, even with the Power Wheel adjusted to the low and high limits. Authorized AirForce retailers who sell and tune these guns have confirmed this, so it is not just me.

What others should know: Be aware that the Power Wheel has no effect in current AirForce guns. Also, listen to what others have written about using Airforce guns with a pump - it truly is a pain in the butt! I did not listen to the advice, and am suffering for it. Shoooting 35 shots brings the tank from 3,000 psi to about 2,000 psi. Using a Hill Mk4 pump, it takes 4 pumping sessions and 1 hour to fill the tank back up (because of the heat, you need to rest the pump for 15 minutes after about 50 strokes). I am definitely saving for a small carbon fiber tank.

Things I liked: Very well made, nicely finished piece of equipment Very accurate , very quiet Lots of mods / acc. Available

Things I would have changed: Would possibly include open sights with rifle so that it is Useable " out of the box "

What others should know: I was worrying about filling tank with the hand pump, But it turned out to be a non-issue for the way I shoot If I wanted to plink all day I would consider the co2 adapter

Things I liked: I did extensive research so I had no surprises. The Talon SS works as described. It is accurate and fairly quiet. The compact size makes it very handy. I am impressed with the quality and really like that it is made in the USA.

Things I would have changed: Would really like it if they could develop a multi shot system instead of the single shot. The good news is it is easy to load the pellets.

What others should know: It is important to follow the advice of others and get the high scope mounts. By raising the scope up you have a more comfortable aiming position.

  • 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!

    • 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.
