Now those are what I’m seeing when I close my eyes and think of
kick butt projectiles leaving my AirRifle barrel. ➡
P.S. – what’s typical fpe with the Air Force TSS18″ barrel @ about 3200 psi – P. Dial about 11 in ,22 cal? I’d be curious about 40 or so yards.
roel13: Those pics of just shooting the shit (buckets, doors, etc.) remind of myself. Impressive & fun feeling about it huh? 🙂March 6, 2009 at 5:37 am #65142mawParticipant
That bigger valve is going to put out some power I believe alot more so keep us posted.March 6, 2009 at 7:18 am #65150
my Talon was doing about 50 FPE straight from te box for as far as i can remember, it was fitted with a 12″ barrel. When there`s a 18″ there might a bit more action.

Hey that’s GOOD NeWs. I was with the impression That out of box set up would be about 34 fpe or so. My Top Hat is at 7+mm. I usually fill a couple hundred over 3000 to my gun. 18″ barrel. I’m not REAL consistant on the power dial though. I just look around and play with different pellet effects on different items. Always fairly happy though. I like:
3.75 – 6.75 – 9 – 11+. I even smile at the shot I just put with the dial @ .90! Not even 1. 2900 to 3000 psi.
I think I want a larger weight to tap the T-Hat. Just ordered a range finder, so have to live with this umF power push for now…… ➡
Do you know what your Hat is mm out to?March 6, 2009 at 11:09 am #65163
nha, to be totally honest with you lemme tell you this. The adjustment of the top hat never bothered me that much. Adjustments been done by making a new valve with a little bigger hole in it. A bigger hole solves any respiration problem. To adjust the tophat you have to be a little subtile. Being subtile is not my kinda thing, i just wanna yank the pellets out of the gun at the max possible speed with the biggest recoil possible and the hardest BANG available.
For as far as i can remember i think the inner diameter was about 4 millimeter, i`m not 100% sure.
Like you say, i`m not too fond of shooting groups in a piece of paper either, breaking things is more fun.
See ya around.

12 in? 50 FPE? You sure? A 12in TSS stock does 24-26 fpe usually….. Was that measurement taken with a new valve?March 6, 2009 at 8:54 pm #65217
nope, i`m not sure. I just looked it up on the dutch airgunforum. I used Baracuda Extra `eavy`s, and the gun did a little over 40 fpe. 286 meters per second. A slip of the fingertip? A memory that`s not too good anymore? (Forget the first option, i was pretty sure it did 50 fpe)
Sorry for giving the wrong numbers. You say a standard out of the box gun is doing about 26 fpe? If that had been told in the days i ordered one, i would have canceled the order. The Talons are known and honored for giving some power straight out of the box over here in Holland.
I dunno what`s the cause of the difference. I Just know i can`t trust my memory….

A standard talon should get about 26fpe stock, but are you sure you are not talking about a condor? Because a talon SS, 12 inch barrel, stock valve should not be over 30 without serious mods..March 6, 2009 at 10:43 pm #65228
i`m starting to doubt myself. Maybe i`ve become the drunk my old man used te be. I just asked Rob, some insane technical wizard and a friend of mine. He`s an insane nutcase and a friend.
“Yo Rob, i told that a standard Talon with a 12″ barrel is doing 40 fpe. Am i nuts or what?”
“Roel, what have you been drinking, you freaking nutcase, numbnut, in heaven a standard Talon is doing 30 fpe, in real life it doesn`t even get to 30. Jerk.”
“Rob, why the fuck did i buy a gun that gives less then 30 fpe? What the hell has been wrong with me those days?”
“Roel, you didn`t improve over the last 1,5 year. Sorry mate, truth is hard. Get yerself a beer mate. Or even better, go to bed.”

I am Rob hahahahah that roel , its your age!!!
Now you will never forget it , a standard talon with 12 ich wont shoot above 30 /32 fpe !
only with a little help from a lathe …………… but when your starting to help the talon , you must help him all the way !
wright above the 80 fpe then you’ll have a nice rig….. for demolition work 🙄
see you soon !!!
greets RobertMarch 7, 2009 at 12:10 am #65236
hahaha! Yeah right man, we sure do. Next month in Ochten.
Anyway, my Talon days are over. I got the sparebottle from Richard Kilroy yesterday, i`m gonna get the valve to fit and run amok like i`m being payed for it.
Take care mate.
RoelMarch 7, 2009 at 11:40 pm #65339
runamok? My ass!
Been working on the Hanserfaust valve, i had to do some work before it even fitted in the frame. It gave about the same power as when i`m farting a pellet.
Better make a bit heavier hammer i think……
Keep ya posted.

got a message about a reaction in this topic.
I almost forgot i ever owned this gun. Seeing the pics it brings back memories. The Condor is long gone. I think i sold it to a bloke in Belgium. There`s no mo` Airforce guns over here no more. The guns i`ve got now are the UZGOOB .308 (a Daystate/Beaumont/Sinner mixture), the 201S, a III 300, an Infinity in .22, a Techstra, FX Rev, A BAM in .22 and a Cometa Lynx.
