Let me start out by saying that I dont like to spend money on most accessories. I suppose that I am bedazzled by bling at times, but it’s hard for me to justify spending out cash for something that on the surface appears quite dull but ‘supposed’ to make a difference on a gun.

That said, I debated for quite a long time on the new CF tank from Talon Tunes. On one hand, it looks pretty cool. It decreases weight of the gun… but it dont really make a huge difference in looks or function. Or so I thought.

Well, I did end up getting the tank after seeing a thread of someone asking about fitting it to a Daystate Air Wolf. My .22 MCT has always been a go-to gun and I figured I’ll shell out the coin for it and see how goes.

This was Friday.

Today, I come home from work to this… blocked out my address so I dont get hate mail. :-)

Considering that Tony is a few states South of me, that is some ultra fast shipping. Should have come as no surprise though. The online ordering throughhttp://www.talontunes.com was easy and I got email updates when the order was placed… filled… and shipped.

I picked up the box and thought that there must be a mistake. No way a tank was in there. Too light. Sure enough, my order (tank and T shirt) was in there along with some other goodies. I always appreciate a company that will send out cards or stickers or little things. Means a lot and it’s just cool to get little freebies in a box! Note that the knife was not included, but I used it to open the package and thought it looked pretty cool along with so I included it in the pic.

While the tank was purchased for an Air Wolf, I couldnt resist mounting it quickly to one of my Talons to see how it felt. For sure, lightened up the gun significantly and just looked good on it. Decreased the LOP a bit, too… a welcomed feature for those who use an external regulator on the Talons.
After getting a feel for it and a quick photo op, I mounted on my Daystate.

So the hardest part it seems was not emptying the steel tank, but actually getting the steel tank off. I twisted and fought with it until I thought I was going to break my gun. Finally, after securing the action in a vise with some protective blocks and wrapping the steel tank with a bit of leather, I was able to remove it with a small oil filter wrench.

I put the TT CF tank on (it came with an o ring), hand tightened it and put the gun to my shoulder. Just wow! What a difference the tank made. As mentioned, I fought with spending out money on such an upgrade but after doing so, I’m ready to place another order for my .177 Air Wolf. As another poster had mentioned, I will never go back to a steel bottle. Not only did the TT tank reduce weight, but the gun balances much better. Being DOT certified, I never have to worry about reselling the tank or wondering if it was made or labelled under suspect conditions. Tony has made sure to bring a top notch product to us.

    Thank you it Exceeds expectation I am very impressed .
    I will be fitting it as soon as time allows this will definitely finish this rifle project .
    It is a bit of a shame that i could not find a UK supplier who could match price or customer service !
    I am still waiting on UK purchased items to arrive shipped on the same day as the bottle from the U.S.A!

    So after a few months of pushing my guns with several different configurations from 30 fpe reg’d set ups all the way to my personal best 103.3 fpe I have concluded that these bottle make a huge difference in the guns. The length is perfect for the reg set up as it is only an inch longer than a factory bottle valve combo. with the High pressure I can get up to 3600 psi with out worry of failure. I am running one of these on my condor and one on my talon and am glad I did especially on my Condor. At just under 14 lbs when set up for night time yote hunts every ounce counts.

    Thanks Tony for finding these and getting them to the market. You do awesome work.

    Tony, just a quick thanks after the purchase of one of your carbon bottles, got it fitted to my airwolf and the rifle is now an absolute pleasure to shoulder after previously being too front heavy with the 500cc aluminium (correct spelling I’m from the UK) bottle. Money very well spent – great service and great product. ☺

    Hi Tony, I got the order from you. Thank you very much. Everything I ordered is better than I expected. The carbon fiber tanks you sent are perfect. I really like the weight loss and higher fill pressure. I think it is perfect for my 257 build.
    Thanks buddy

    Another one of those “Why do I need it as the factory one seems to work” type products.
    I read the reviews and decided that I wanted to get this to see if the reviews were true. They were.

    The carbon fiber tank looks hi-tech and it is lighter and a few inches shorter than the factory steel tank. The fill pressures are higher and so it actually hold more than the larger steel tank.

    The gun feels different with the tank drop down and this tank. It is more ergonomic it seems. The less weight makes this a bit better to carry around. My shot counts went up because of this tank in combination with the adjustable top hat. I recommend highly this tank.

    Arrived quick. The quality is way better than expected. Super light weight! I’m excited to get it on my gun and get it going.

    Tony,

    Just got the bottle in today. I pulled the old heavyweight bottle off of my Airmax Dominator MKII and yours fit right up with no need to inlet the wood at all. I gained 35% more air, and I dropped .70 pounds.

    The rifle looks great and feels great too.

    Thank you sir,
    Austin
