Review this product
11 September 2008  

Things I liked: I think the rifle is very well thought out, and most of the final product is well executed. It's every bit as powerful and accurate as the advertising claims. Most of the rifle shows quality, value and care in it's construction... all except for one item... It's outlined in "Things I'd change"...
Things I would have changed: So, what would I change? The pistol grip! As well as the rest of the gun is made, the pistol grip positively screeches "Cheap"! When the grip on mine was made the mold didn't close properly. The center edge line was 1/16" or more out of line and some of the edges were VERY sharp. I could easily have been cut. The thing that bugs me about this is those grips had to have been installed by a human being. One who wasn't too concerned about what the buyer thought of his work. Perhaps mine is a fluke, I don't know. This is why I down rated the gun for "value". I paid well in excess of $500.00 for a rifle to deal with small urban pests, and to take a place in the gun safe beside my other "real" guns. My first thought seeing those grips was "toy". Fortunately my first impression was wrong and I took the time to file and sand off the "rough edges" to my satisfaction. In the end I like the gun and I'm glad I bought it.
What others should know: I did not complain to Pyramyd Air regarding my gripe with my Talon. I was just impatient enough to air it up and check out how well it shot before deciding what to do with it. (I used a glove over the grip). It shot so well and with such power I decided to keep it and just fix the problem myself. So far my experience with Pyramyd's customer service has been quite satisfactory. One last thing, I'm a member of the American Gunsmith's Guild, so doing my own repair work was just another day at the shop. In other words, "don't try this at home". You'll void your warranty, like I probably did mine...

Things I liked: Power and accuracy are phenomenal. I wouldnt have bought my Mendoza RM600 .22 if I had known about this one. Bought this in .177 and am ordering the 24" .22 barrel later. No recoil, you can see the pellet fly through the hit zone in the scope - how cool is that! It's a one-hole puncher @ 10-15 yards, seriously accurate.
Things I would have changed: I really wish it had a pressure gauge built in so you could see what operating pressure you're at. Without a chrono you really have to guess, "if I blast through a steel can @ 15 yards, then it "should" kill that squirell, right?". Was a LOT more money than I thought I'd ever spend on an airgun, but I can shoot all day in my yard and not freak out neighbors.
What others should know: I've blown through 1250 Crossman Premiers and it never gets dull. I do wish shouldering the rifle were easier - the round tank isn't exactly a face plate, but you get used to it and the pistol grip really aids in stabilizing for shots. You will love this gun, even after you've regretted paying for it, and the pump, and the scuba tank, and pellets, and targets, and.... :)

Things I liked: This SS is a tack driver. .18ctc at 20 yards. using Kodiak's in .20. virtually no drop at 60 yards. Blows clean through Squirrels at this range. Shrouded barrel with end cap does a good job. Much quieter than without end cap. Overall very pleased with performance. Get a kick out of seeing pellet hitting target. Something difficult to do with a magnum Springer!
Things I would have changed: Ordered the Talon SS in ...22. Rec'd it in .20. Although it arrived with 4 boxes of Crossman's in .22 you would think this world have been a strong "Red Flag that the wrong gun was being sent. Pyramyd Air did ship some .20's with out shipping charge, but at retail , so I can finally use the gun. Trigger much better than I have been led to believe.
What others should know: High mounts definitely a must. Good shot count on fill. Also better than I have heard. A little light in the muzzle. Made barrel weight to fit inside of shroud. Works great. Still wanting a .22 barrel

Things I liked: Accurate, Quit on the lowest setting for fun plinking, Quickly can dial it up to about an 8 for optimal shots.
Things I would have changed: You need the tri rail extension and high rings and it only barely gets the scope into norma rifle position. Once there only about 3/4" of the butt plate is on your shoulder. I would make it more ergonomical. But still it is a blast to shoot.

Things I liked: The gun is great! Very accurate, the fit and finish is perfect. I love it!!
Things I would have changed: I would like to see a weaver type mount for the scope.
What others should know: I purchased the CO2 adapter so I could use the paint gun tank for back yard plinking. With the CO2 tank installed it is very hard to get a good sight picture in the scope as the tank is larger than the normal tank so you cannot get your eye lined up correctly. The fix is to mount the scope higher which is hard to do without a weaver type mount.
