    Those of you responsible for the change of host, THANK YOU! Having just acquired a couple Talon SS’s, I have a need for AirForce gun infomation and this is obviously the best place to get that. Now I can find some answers
    that I need, or help when I can’t find the answer. Great site, and again, good work admins. BTW, if I laid claim to being the oldest poster (72) on TAG, would I be correct? VonBrink

    You might be the oldest but you certainly don’t sound/type that old. :mrgreen: I’m 55 goin’ on 18.
    Glad you’re here.

    Glad to see you hear, and also glad to see you have the Talon SS(s) I have it also and it is an amazing gun I shoot it almost everyday. Make sure to check out TalonTunes.com to get those baby’s dialed in…

    By way of introduction as you can see my “handle” is VonBrink, but I go by BUD. I live in southern Illinois and started air-gunning in 1992 My running list says that I have had over 300 guns in the last 17 years, but at this stage I am trying to get down from the usual 15 to 20 on hand, to about 4 or 5. I have been shooting indoor air gun silhouette 9 months a year for the last 16 years. I also shot 10 meter air rifle and air pistol until about 5 years ago. I have been setting up at the Little Rock air gun show for the last 5 years, but this year have a table at the air gun show in Findley, Ohio on April 5th. I am an avid “BIG CAT” fisherman and also do some walleye fishing. Gave up driving dirt cars for a passtime when I was 53 and ratted around for a couple of years before I discovered air guns. Bought a new stock Tallon SS about six weeks ago and then bought an almost new Talon Tunes SS 2 weeks ago.
    I’m hooked, I like messing with guns and these are the perfect guns if you like to do that. I have a 24″ barrel and I am also set up for CO2 and have a micro tank too. Now a question. Where on here is the best place to look up the reason my micro tank valve sticking after each shot?

    VonBrink; Don’t shot your eye out! As far as I’m concerned you’re the sage of the forum, at least in longevity. I’m a youngster at 54 by comparison. A mere boy by comparison.

    Enjoy the forum. We’re all here to help. AKULA

    Bud,

    Your valve is sticking? You might have a burr or debris on the stem. You probably should degass and push the stem down with your thumb and see if it is sticking. If it is you probably can just give it a good pull on and take the stem out. Lightly polish the stem and put some silicon grease on it and reinstall by push it back it until it seat in the valve seat again. Fill er up and give it a try.

    To empty your tank put a couple of dimes in your fill adapter and slowly screw in your tank and it will start to empty. Do it slowly.

    WO, you scare me with instructions to pull the the stem out. The reason is that the tophat and stem fell out of my new CO2 adapter Sunday after a total of 3 shots. It wouldn’t stay in and I couldn’t figure out what was supposed to hold it in place. Called AF and Rachel said to send it in, as there was supposed to be a piece of plastic of some sort to hold it in place. As soon as I get my nerve up I will try what you suggested. LOL!

    Bud,

    That piece of plastic she is talking about is the valve. Take a look here and you will get a better idea of how it is set up. Scroll down and look at the pict of the valve. The stem is press fitted into the black plastic valve part.
