Review this product
7 March 2009  

Things I liked: Made in the good old USA, and Texas to boot! An amazing airgun. Very well made. On par with my better firearms. Dead accurate. At 20 yards with AF 4x16 50 scope most of my first groups were under .25". This is the easiest loading airgun I have as the breach is wide open. Can cock and insert new pellet in under 1 second.
Things I would have changed: Safety is pretty loosey-goosey and requires hand be dedicated to un-safeing the weapon. Your shooting finger will not do it easily or reliably. By necessity, the scope has to sit high. This is because the butt-stock is inline with the breech and barrel and you need eye alignment. Would be nice if design change could be made to lower butt-stock in relation to rest of rifle.
What others should know: In part, because your scope has to sit so high, you will need to carefully learn how much to hold over/ under when sighting on a target. I sighted my Talon SS to hit center when holding over 1.5" at 10 yards, .5" at 20 yards, dead on at 30 yards, .5" low at 40 yards... Once you learn ranges and pellet flight, you can nail crows in the eye at 35 yards, or in the head at 50.

Things I liked: The ability to mount accessories such as scope or red dot sights w/laser and light, and all inline with the rifle. Options of barrel lengths & calibers. Very, very accurate... the best i've seen.
Things I would have changed: An option to disengage 'auto-safety' for faster followup shots and stealthy hunting... clicking safety(off) is noisy. Air pressure gauge built-into the air tank would be useful.
What others should know: Convert this thing to a 24 inch barrel(.22) increases power...bigtime. With my ss barrel-swap to 24" w/ 21 gr.kodiak pellets, here's my chrono results @ power level #07 for thirty-five shots, in fps(feet per second); 1-936,2-952,3-964,4-969,5-944,6-954,7-944,8-944,9-929,10-909,11-928,12-940,13-924,14-913,15-925,16-910,17-931,18-935,19-938,20-927,21-921,22-penetrated 2x4,23-934,24-922,25-940,26-927,27-917,28-903,29-908,30-915,31-penetrated 2x4,32-915,33-906,34-883,35-874. Look closely at the numbers(fps)... that's not a 14-grain lightweight pellet. And yes, it really did easily go right through 2x4 wood after all those shots!!! Spring pistons can't measure up to PCP's.

Things I liked: Compact, accurate, modifiable and QUIET. Built like it will last a lifetime.
Things I would have changed: Include a more comfortable and adjustable butt plate.
What others should know: If you want higher fps and a heavier pellet and thus more fpe you can buy a longer barrel. But then it won't have the end cap to lessen the noise. If noise is not a problem then go for the 18" or 24" barrel that swaps out in about 5 minutes.

Things I liked: First of all, this rifle feels great in the hands. I'm having a blast shooting it offhand. I was going to get a bipod but I think I'll wait until I have a Condor. Accuracy is spot-on.
Things I would have changed: Safety is a little awkward for me.
What others should know: I keep this in the same case as my Benji CB9. Between the two of them I'm seriously thinking about ditching all my other pellet rifles. Yeah, I think I found the rifle (ok, rifles) that does it all.

Things I liked: Shows you can have BIG power and BIG accuracy in one fun gun. No more cocking and slamming recoil to throw off your shot. No longer use ANY of my RWS/Beemans-no need! Very quiet for the power.
Things I would have changed: Requested accessories would be a power indicator to go between tank and gun / curved shoulder piece/ rubber grip add on-Good to go out of the box, though!
What others should know: Prepare to have your dreams answered! Power needs to be respected-Pre-teens (and some older) use under adult supervision.
