    Don’t see a lot about the Talon P.

    Those who have them, modified or not, tell us the good, bad and the ugly.  Always need some excuse to buy another PCP pistol.

    Why would one want a Talon P if he already has a P-rod?

    Start a good discussion.

    I was looking at the talon P but the one thing I didn’t like was it doesn’t have any baffling or sound suppression built into it like the P-Rod and I don’t know if you can add a suppressor onto it..

    the up side it looks cool, the price is not crazy high, different color options, I think it comes in .25 cal

    These are two completely different animals.  I own both.  A Talon P is a .25 powerful, single shot, that delivers 50 fpe in it’s stock form. Mine likes heavier .25 pellets and is capable of half inch groups at 50 yards, but due to geometry of AG it usually shoots closer to an inch at 50 yards.  I get about 10 good shots out of mine the way I have it dialed up. I put a 24 ” Airforce barrel on mine and it is now 100 fpe with Eun Jin 43.2g pellets.  Think .22 long rifle in  power and sound.  I did put a suppressor on mine when it was in stock form and it did blunt some of the report, but could not call it backyard friendly.  The Talon P is primarily a hunting AG up to medium size game(coons, coyote, small hogs).  I have dropped two large, pest coons with it like a stone.  I would not even think of doing that with a P-rod.  It is by far the most powerful .25 I own in it’s present state, which includes a .25 Marauder(45 fpe) and a .25 RAW 1000X (55 fpe) which is it’s forte.

    What Kev said and more!  I really like the compactness of the pistol, more like a carbine in size and weight.
    I added a suppressor to mine which has 6 K baffles that keep it quiet as long as the pellets are subsonic.
    I have an Aimpoint on it and a Torrey Pines Thermal Site in front of that for night time ratting.

    rrdstarr, kev;
    Which suppressor did you choose?  Does it do a good job?  I live in the country and don’t need a suppressor, but do like the reduced sound from the M-rod, P-r0d and TKO on my Discovery.

    I had an R & L Airgun suppressor on the original TalonP but sold it when I got the 24″ barrel which then produced 100 fpe.  It essentially turned it into an Airforce Escape.  A lot of survivalist like the TalonP platform because of small tank(easy to fill with hand pump), and compactness to power ratio.  

    The Prod is deadly out to 25 yards on squirrels and is accurate and quiet.  This one has taken well over 100 squirrels primarily off of bird feeders in backyard.  This picture is a good size comparison between the two AGs. The Talon P’s original length would be from back of tank to end of barrel shroud making it more compact than Prod.

    TalonP still looks quite interesting due to the .25 caliper.  With a suppressor on it , it really does temp me.  I like the P-rod and would not get rid of it, but sometimes more power in a smaller package than my M-rod .25 would be nice.  Well, in my old age, making these kind of decisions is wearing me out, ha,ha.  Decisions, decisions, decisions!

    The TalonP also has the option of expanding it to other configurations if the mood strikes me.

    Also am considering a TX200 Mark III.  Have a FWB124 and BSA Mercury, but don’t shoot either one very often.  Afraid a TX200 might just sit in safe because I’m shooting PCP’s. Kinda like my several Sheridans and Benjamin multi-pumps.

    I bought another 88 cu ft SCUBA tank yesterday cause I am draining the the one 88 I already have.  I only have PCP’s and a few CO2 guns.

    The TX is a great AG with heirloom quality. The TalonP is not,but it wasn’t meant to be. 

    If you’re primarily into PCP and want a small powerhouse then go with the TalonP. There are hunting videos with guys taking  Prairie dogs  out to 100 yards with them.  It is hard to suppress them to “backyard friendly”,when you’re dealing with a12″ barrel in .25 that produces 50 fpe right out of the box.

    Kev- I have a TalonP and live in a suburban environment.  I have found that the Pistol (if you want to call it that) in .25 quiets well with a talon tunes shroud.  It is not silent, but sufficient enough to dispatch skunks, raccoons, and opossum without alerting my family inside the house, or the neighbors.  

    Jonah- I have to say that the TalonP is an excellent choice, mine has a super sear, talon tunes QC top hat, and a talon tunes shroud.  I would highly suggest that if you pick up a talonP that you get the super sear.  It transforms a mushy/gritty trigger into a much smoother and predictable experience.   The shroud does make the pistol longer but is very effective at taming the sound.  Last the Top hat may not be needed but it will change from the factory 2 piece (known to self-adjust and change velocity) to a more reliable 1 piece unit with interchangeable inserts.  The inserts essentially are transfer port restrictors allowing gross adjustment of velocity.

    Cally88-That is good news about the talon tunes shroud for the TalonP because in stock form it is very loud. There  are a number of modifications both externally (like I did) and internally (like you did) available which makes this an excellent platform for someone who likes to customize their AG.  The result is usually a compact, powerful .25 beast.

    Very powerful and shoots about any pellet with good accuracy. JSB’s and GTO’s are the most accurate for me. I made a stock for it. Its better suited as a carbine.

    It’s pretty loud if your going to be backyard shooting. But tons of power

    The thing that I love about the AirForce platform is that they are a modular platform. You can build about anything you want change anything want. Think about what powder burners do when building off of the AR 15 platform different barrel from another gun different upper and different lower, they put togather what they want. That is what I have done to my Talonp right now it is not the same that it was over a year. MadDog stock larger tank,18in barrel, TT one piece tophat. I knew I was going to build what I wanted over time and I am almost there. I just need a shroud or LDC for it. I am so impress with it I just sold my Gen1 .25 Marauder MDRL bullpup. I know I will regret it some day but it will help fund my build. I was happy with the 34.7 grain slugs I got from Nick that I ordered some 39grain slugs on Nicks recommendation. My Talonp carbine is shooting the 34gr slugs in the lower 900s with an o-ring under the top hat and the power wheel on 0. Just a powerhouse of a carbine. The single shot is a deal killer for alot of guys, I think it makes you hunker down more and concentrate on the shot. I feel they are worth every penny.

    Can anyone tell me their onion of the RL shroud?

    TalonP… 9″And 6″ Shroud/moderators

    TalonP is too loud, not friendly neighborhood. But it’s a powerful and accurate airpistol. I have a 6” RL shroud but it’s too loud. If choose it, you need to try another shroud as a DonnyFL shroud (Ronin, Sumo need end cap adapter for additional shrouds) or TalonTunes Shroud Gen 6 for TalonP. 

    This is a RL shroud 6”

    Talon P  …. Stock 12″ barrel, Talon Tunes Moderator, Mad Dog Bulldog stock, Leapers Bug Buster scope and longer bottle from China. Light, Silent and deadly at 50 ft/lb, 100 yards minute of grackle accuracy and shoots 52 grain hand cast hollow point bobs boat tail bullets with no setting changes between them and JSB 25.4’s

    With minimal tools and skills it is possible to fabricate a very effective and good looking moderator for these guns from 1 1/2″ and 1″ Schedule 40 PVC, 3/4″ Schedule 40 Gray Conduit and a “Scotchbrite” pad for around $15

    Homebuilt Talon P suppressor. I built my own from an empty gas cylinder used on the Paslode nail gun and PVC end caps (baffles) from the plumbing store. Cut off the crimped cylinder end cap, then drill a clearance hole in the end of the cylinder.  Drill the PVC end caps with the same size drill, making sure all holes are on center.
    The difficult part was to make a adaptor to match the barrel shroud to the cylinder.  I machined mine out of aluminum and secured it to the gas cylinder with screws. If you don’t have access to a lathe, try various sizes of PVC pipe couplings.
    My suppressor works great and really takes the bark from the Talon P. My next project will be a suppressor made from an old Mag Lite flashlight. Good luck!
