I am not a bling guy but I am sure someone will get a kick out of this. I am building this Talon for my buddy. He is going to run it on a regulated paintball tank with the CO2 adapter.
Here is what I am starting with
Safety removed, trigger group gets some moly, and grip comes off
New grip frame before cutting
New frame roughed out
New frame and grip installed, still a little work to do but you get the picture
This Talon will get a Chrome 🙄 Frame Extension. I will post some photos as things progress. At least I can count on him chasing all the birds to me.

Good job. You are going to love how it feels. Welcome to the club 😆January 26, 2008 at 7:56 am #32530photo22Participant
WOW….your bling is kicking 😀January 29, 2008 at 3:22 am #32744
Finished the frame extension (baffled) today.
Now this talon has the new grip, polished tophat, polished barrel, lubed trigger group contact points with moly, vented frame, vented bushing, frame extension.
Here is the pic

WOW…now that is flashy 😀 . Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!January 29, 2008 at 7:02 am #32764riffraffParticipant
Thats actually pretty neat looking.
I wonder how hard it would be to pseudo-chrome the frame?January 29, 2008 at 2:00 pm #32765bodhisdadParticipant
Thats different, cool to see some going in a different direction. I like the bling, a;; the more so with the chrome. Nice work.January 30, 2008 at 3:00 am #32818
We did some shooting with this setup on the chrono and the consistency was amazing.
We still need to boost the psi, but it is shooting in the 630 range with 3 fps deviation for ever……we didn’t shoot it till it dropped but I am guessing over 100 shots this way.
With some more tweaking for higher regulated pressure I think this will be a tack driver with extremely consistent velocities.
Will post more as we tweak on the “Bling Machine”

Hey Rusty shot some today. The more I shoot this thing the more I like it. (Even with the BLING). Thanks again for all your help. EricJanuary 30, 2008 at 3:28 am #32822
I am glad your happy with it, maybe you can scare some birds to me to shoot tomorrow 😀

very nice mate welldone .looks a right cracker now .whats next in the pipeline for the moddingFebruary 1, 2008 at 12:34 am #32945
Ok been busy with this one.
Stock Reg setting is 800psi and shoots around 635 w/ 14grain WC at PW1-10
Bumped the reg to 1350psi and it is getting 775 at PW6-10 and down to 600 at PW0
The tophat doesn’t seem to make much difference with the reg/CO2 adapter setup.
This is with the 18″ .22cal stock barrel.
It is very consistent in velocity.
Oh and I made him a slip on camo barrel cover to hide the chrome when hunting. 8)February 1, 2008 at 12:48 am #32946rob3drParticipant
Sharp looking rig!February 1, 2008 at 1:24 am #32951bodhisdadParticipant
Got some ali tubing same as yours today. What did you use as a endcap??
I have a PVC shroud setup as well, but have reservations on how well it will stay centered. The ali 1″ tubing is a nice tight fit and it will polish up nice, not to mention i have alot of silver/ali bits and pieces on already. Love the look and keep up the good work.February 1, 2008 at 2:35 am #32952
I will not accept credit for finding the tubing for the extension.
I am embarrassed to admit that I let Eric talk me into building it out of 1 1/4 drain pipe. 😳 It is chromed copper thin wall pipe. Available at most home improvement stores, this came from Home Depot.
The other pieces I turned from black delrin (visible), white delrin(baffles), and some pvc pipe for spacers. One note is that epoxy will not hold this combination together, but CA (hobby grade superglue) is holding up well.
It did turn out looking pretty good, I must admit.
