AirForce brand air rifles are considered to be some of the most advanced rifles available. Using aircraft grade aluminum alloy, space age polymers and state of the art production techniques you don't just get a typical air rifle, you get a technologically advanced piece of machinery! With outstanding power, accuracy and advanced production techniques, AirForce air rifles will not disappoint. The AirForce Talon is the original AirForce rifle that offers one of the best combination of power, weight and balance available.The Talon SS uses a 12" barrel and a special muzzle cap that helps stop air turbulence when the pellet leaves the barrel. This makes the shot EXTREMELY quiet compared to other PCP (pre-charge pneumatic) and spring pneumatic rifles. The same German made Lothar Walther barrel is used in the Talon SS, so there is no accuracy being sacrificed at the cost of noise reduction. Some people have reported shooting 2 inch or less groups at 50 yards with this rifle. With it being quiet and such an accurate shot, it makes the Talon SS perfect for urban varmint and pest removal while not upsetting your neighbors because of sound.
Being a PCP (pre-charged pneumatic) rifle, a pump or scuba refill clamp must be purchased or you will not be able to fire your rifle. We recommend the AirForce pump to insure you get the maximum power out of your rifle with out having to lug around a Scuba tank or take it to get charged constantly after each outing when using the Scuba Refill Clamp with Adapter. Both are excellent ways to charge your guns pneumatic system and get it ready for shooting.
The Talon has many other highlights, like the easily adjustable power reel that is located on the barrel, a two-stage adjustable trigger and automatic safety as well as the ergonomic feel and overall light weight.

So far, after about 200 shots, I must say I'm very impressed. I'm not a hunter and I don't live in an area where pests are a problem, I just like to target shoot and this gun provides an excellent platform for just that. I'm still learning about it so I'll update the review once I've had it for a while.
