I’ve recently decided to purchase my first PCP and have no clue what I need to get started.
What I’ve decided on is a Talon SS in .22 with a handpump (move up to a tank later on). However i do not know what odds and ends i need to actually be able to charge the SS from the pump. at first i though it was one adapter you simply connect to the pump and then stick the bottle in, but then i was told i would need a hose for it to work.
So i need a little help here.
Other things I’ve decided on was a Chrony, Bi-pod, Scope, and Mounts, and some kodiak, logun and jsb pellets to try out. Also thinking about getting a longer barrel how far would the 18in stick out past the Frame compared to a 24in?
On the tri rail, just make sure you get a good one, see the “Scope misalignment thread ”
Welcome and enjoy researching alot to digest before purchase. I too would stick with the 12″ barrel for a bit, its no slouch when you can get 16g pellets up to 800fps, which is plenty for most applications. Unless your going to be shooting out past 50yds. A valve mod will add some velocity allowing a gain of 100fps w/ the 12″. Along with some baffles in the frame its a good combination to start with. A bi-pod would be more of a need for me then a longer barrel to start with.
