    Talon tunes tuned Condor with a baffled shroud, hammer slap mod, and anything else to make it quiet cost? Like, mouse fart quiet? Would 800ish fps (14.3-16gr) be feasible and still be extremely quiet? I will be sending him an email tonight or tomorrow, but wanted to hear any reviews or thoughts on this first. Thanks!

    Tony has his prices listed on most of services, but the best way to figure this out is to call or e-mail him. Trust me, whatever you get from him it’s going to rock your airgun world. Worth every penny.

    My TalonTunes Condor w/ .25 barrel and custom stock from Steve Corcoran as well as scope, bipod, laser and swivels cost damn near 2K.

    If you check in the Condor and Hunting sections you will find good Info. and reviews on his work, and what it can do. If your looking for 800ish fps with 14.3 or 16gr pellets, your in for a shock 😯 His setup will do better than that with a 31gr and 42.8gr pellet in .25cal. It will cost for all the bells and whistles…you know, laser,light,big glass, tri-rail and more. Total cost even after Tony’s work will be up as Nuglor has listed for you but you will have one sweet hunting/shooting machine 😀 .

    IMHO that is money well spent. 8) 8) He’s got a true work of art. I got a couple bucks invested in the hobby as well. Worth every penny I spent.

    When’s the last time your Condor/Talon spoke back to you, bitched & complained, or told you that you need to quit smoking and drinking? Not mine! 😆 😆

    Oh brother…. do you really want to know? Are you sitting down? The gun, .25 barrel setup, complete tune by Tony of TalonTunes, custom shroud, tri-rail mount, scope and scope mounts was $1550. Then you’ve got the laser, bipod, sling mounts and custom wood. That’s another $365. With a sling and pellets, I’ve got a good 2K into it total. Psssst….. Don’t let my wife know. She’d freakin’ kill me! BUT…. I’m getting around 960 fps with a 42g pellet. That come out to around 86 fpe. And I can peg the tack holding the targets up at 50 yrds. on a calm day. Just as accurate as my Custom target 10/22 that I built. 😈

    Yeah Nug’s got that bad a$$ wood. That will push the cost up some.

    Yea, Tony is worth it. That is a given.

    The question is does your wife think you are worth it 😆 😆 😆 😆

    First, I echo everyone else. getting one of these looking & shootinig the way you want is SOOOOO worth it. I have about 1500 in mine & just ordered 400 in barrel/shroud/hammer from tony.

    Second, don’t let the numbers scare you off. This can be done in stages and not so painful. I’ve had mine 2 years. started w/ .177 TSS, Velocity and accuracy great, trigger soso. Tune time. Coult hit golf balls easily at 40yd or better. initial setup 750 w/ hand pump. add good sights, 200.00. Decided wanted more range/power, upgrade to 24″ .22 w/ shroud, 250.00. Custom stock (made my own), now changing again to the .25.

    Yes, a lot of money. but this is the most satisfying hobby I have (yes I choked initially at the thought of spending close to a grand on a “bb gun”. Not for everyone, but worth every penny.

    Here’s some perspective:
    bass boat = $xx,000 costs me $100 every time it goes out
    gets used: 2-3 times a month summer, sits all winter
    powderburning guns = $x,000.00 costs ammo+range+transportation for each use, used 2-3 times /yr + some hunting
    Fishing: Gear+tackle+trips…….too much (but I still do it)

    vs.

    Talon w/ mods, requires just Pellets and air.
    with my mods I basically have three guns for the total investment, just 5 minutes to change barrels etc for indoor shooting .177, 22 for med range, lots of shots on med power. or the 25 for hunting/long range.

    Plus the talon gets used 3-5 days a week. still puts a smile on my face everytime I splatter a paintball from 50 yards or hear the smack of a headshot on a sparrow from 40+ yards. The look on the face of othes when they see how this gun shoots: priceless. NO REGRETS HERE, IN FACT DEBATING A SECOND ONE.

    Not terribly expensive when compared to some of my other hobbies/things I spend money on
