Things I liked: well built rifle . very well balanced not bad trigger for a 100 plus dollar rifle. took while for it to start to shoot good groups as I cleaned the barrel and thought it was dirty. Put a bsa scope on it never tried the stock one.great stock on it love the checkering
Things I would have changed: I liked the 11mm rail system better but it works, also make the trigger a little more easy s far a pull weight.
What others should know: like all air guns mine is pellet picky. seems like 8.44 jsb are good put also like the h and n barracuda8.6 wish other would chime in to let other people get a pellet match or close to what others are shooting
Things I liked: Accuracy, weight, feel of stock. And the Ruger trademark, even if Ruger didn't manufacture the rifle. I have a Ruger Mk 1 bull barrel that I have loved for decades and it's nice to see that red eagle coat of arms again.
Things I would have changed: Put a decent scope on it! It's a high speed air rifle at .177 cal and unless you are hunting ground squirrels at 20 yards or less the scope is next to useless and likely would self-destruct eventually in a springer rifle like this. I put a Hammers SA3-9x32AO on and my son and I after one afternoon session can keep dime sized groups or smaller at 20, 40 and 50 yards. At 30 feet where I sight in scopes the pellets essentially all go through the same hole.
What others should know: At long range (50-75+ yards) light weight pellets move faster but get more erratic in their patterns. Using Gamo Premier ultra magnum heavy, 10.5 gr. for general purpose use here. Every rifle has its favorite pellet for certain ranges so I plan to try others. I don't hunt with it so didn't need the sling offered in the combo pack, the comfort of my back porch is just fine as is. The red Ruger trademark discs at the rear of the stock come unglued pretty rapidly. I suggest taking them off and regluing them with a decent super glue.
Things I liked: The Talon feels really solid, the stock is comfortable and the grip is amazing.
Things I would have changed: The scope is awful. Replace the scope and you got yourself an inexpensive yet well build rifle.
What others should know: This thing is not quiet. Maybe I lucked out and got a loud one, but I'm pretty sure I crapped myself when I first fired this thing at 9pm, with a cop for a neighbor.. Hopefully it quiets down after its broken in. That being said, I still think it's a solid rifle worth buying, with a great bang for the buck value.
