I just got my first PCP air rifle…..Talon SS…I upgraded from a 40 year old Benjamin .22
My hubby is afraid that the neighbors are going to call the cops on me…because it is louder than we expected.
How can I make it say 50% quieter??? Is there anyway???
I have to keep my hubby happy or I can’t play with my new toy 🙄
Help is needed ASAP

Here you go. Check out our quick reference section…And welcomeOctober 24, 2007 at 4:59 am #26398
I’m confused…do I unscrew my end cap & insert the spring & will it scratch up the inside???
How much do you think it will quiet the gun down??
thanks for the welcome………I love my Talon SS…I have some “tree rats” to get rid of so I can have some pecans for pecan pies for Turkey day 😀
I hope you are safe from the fires

Use can use a spring or a piece of PVC pipe or copper pipe. With then pipe you can cut it down its length so it expands inside of the gun. Look at the picts….the spring acts as a spacer, then you put in a washer then another spacer then washer etc. Look at Yellow Ninjas post and then go to home depot and or Ace Hardware and buy your supplies.
It will cut the report more then 1/2. You can change the amount of spacers and washers to determine what work best. As you put the end cap back on the spring will take up any slack and make everything nice and tight inside the frame.
And no it will not scratch up the inside…October 24, 2007 at 5:24 am #26400
I will get stuff tomorrow to try……………wish me luck 😆October 24, 2007 at 5:34 am #26401
What you need to look for are 1″ FENDER washers and they are usually with the prepackaged nuts and bolts….Good luckOctober 24, 2007 at 6:20 am #26405teflontronParticipant

This is a great forum………..been browsing for quit a while….
When I was looking/researching this site helped me make a decision to purchase a Air Force Talon SS
I have a lot to learn from you “guys” like………….how do I know my tophat is adjusted right… I didn’t know what a tophat was until it was explained on this forum
How do I know when I need to add more air in my air cylinder????? do I just loose power.
Man oh Man……….I didn’t know that there was so much to this sport 😯
I appreciate all the help that I have received so far….it is always good to learn from others.
Thanks again for the welcome & the helpOctober 24, 2007 at 11:44 am #26417yParticipantquote benfishin2day:
When your tank gets low you’ll notice the velocity of the pellets dropping, which will show itself as a change in where the pellet lands. When I get a new gun I set up a target at the maximum distance I’ll use it on a normal day and then shoot groups, keeping track of how many pellets I’ve shot until I notice a change in where the pellet hits (POI – Point of Impact). So now I know how many shots I can shoot before I refill.
There is a tophat adjusted post that Adam in Socal made in the quick reference section. With an SS they are usually well adjusted as they come from the store so I wouldnt recommened messing around with it. start out by just setting the wheel to a bit above mid way and then if you have one shoot it a few times (10 is fine) over a chrony and see what the velocity is, then refill and lower the wheel setting by a bit and repeat. You probably wont notice a drop in velocity for the first few times you do this, then the velocity will go down a bit, thats probably about the best place to get the most high power shots as when you have the Talon SS with 12″ barrel once you get over a certain wheel setting the gun uses more air, but the velocity doesnt go up. Your trying to find the point where all the air is used to push the pellet and no extra air is coming out the gun after the pellet exits.
I do it that way because I hunt and usually use full power all the time. If you dont want full power then you dont need to bother with that, but its a good idea just so you know. Plinking you can set the gun anywhere below that and get more shots at a lower velocity.
When you increase the barrel length then velocity will increase and you’ll find more of the powerwheel works….. so you’ll have to go over all this stuff again.
So I’d wait until youve had the gun for a long while and have shot a bunch of shots before I even attempted messing with the tophat. You really need a chrony,feeler guages and a LOT of patience to adjust it properly.
Good luck and welcome to the forum
