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!March 25, 2008 at 2:19 am #36451ambush-hunterParticipant
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.March 25, 2008 at 2:22 am #36452
I just emailed him. Thank for the response! I feel loved! 😀March 25, 2008 at 2:45 am #36459
My TalonTunes Condor w/ .25 barrel and custom stock from Steve Corcoran as well as scope, bipod, laser and swivels cost damn near 2K.March 25, 2008 at 2:56 am #36460
😯 2K!! 😯 😯March 25, 2008 at 3:05 am #36461photo22Participant
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 😀 .March 25, 2008 at 3:06 am #36462AnonymousInactive
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. 😈March 25, 2008 at 3:26 am #36466walkonkingParticipant
2 large?…..I won’t tell 😈March 25, 2008 at 3:28 am #36468quote WalkonKing:
Yeah… and worth EVERY DAMN PENNY of it!!! 😀 😀 😀March 25, 2008 at 3:29 am #36469photo22Participant
Yeah Nug’s got that bad a$$ wood. That will push the cost up some.March 25, 2008 at 3:29 am #36470mikemilzParticipant
Tony is worth every bit of the money I am saving now for a shroud and some mod’s but I know I will be happy with the work…… 🙂March 25, 2008 at 3:34 am #36471walkonkingParticipantquote Nuglor:
Yea, Tony is worth it. That is a given.
The question is does your wife think you are worth it 😆 😆 😆 😆March 25, 2008 at 11:47 am #36472shrpshotr28Participantquote targeteer07:
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)
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

shrpshotr28, I couldnt of said it better myself. All of my other hobbies are great I have over 400 pair of tennis shoes at least 350 have not been opened yet, over $50,000 in music equip. and nothing makes me feel like a kid but my Talon SS 😀
