High End Air Rifles customer review and testimonials.

Allen P. 9/28/2022
Thanks for your help and knowledge. My wife told me I could get a FX impact M3 and the parts I wanted to go with it. I have been looking at this gun for a long time but could not afford the price so I saved and when I was ready to buy I could not find a .22 700mm in stock until I saw one at TalonTunes. I called and no one answered and I thought I would just call back later. I was surprised I got a call back 2 minutes after I hung up. It was from Tony. We talked for about 10 minutes and I found out he had everything in stock that I wanted. I order it over the phone and in less than a week it was here and everything was as Tony said. I was happy with the test data that Talon Tunes sent too. You now have a new customer. Thanks again

Not only does Talon Tunes perform well as a company but they exceed the benchmark in customer service setting the bar very high for others to follow. Though based in Florida they ship all over far and wide. I bought an FX M3, a fine build from Tony, tuned by Anthony which when delivered included a custom shot FPS spread, center to center group, signed shot card all this like a piece of art work. You don’t get from the big box stores. Like a Icing on the cake to go along with the custom work they maliciously designed for me. But at Talon Tunes on their online web page I found they have loads of products. Sometimes even though says it is out if stock it is actually in stock so just contact them. Like many web pages just a glitch, it happens. From entry to budget to hi-end. They have it all. Fair and honest price points from a honest group of guys who love the sport just as much as you and I. Be sure to to check them out I’m not getting paid for this review, It’s right thing to do for good service for reliable people who deserve honest feedback.
Tony “owner” of Talon Tunes seller of major brands of Air Rifles but also, hot rodding customizing and supplier of parts and installing parts in brand new rifles. His web site has a vast selection of Air rifles, parts, accessories and the business is locally owned in FL, but that don’t let that stop you from checking into what he can offer. True customer service and support from Day one the experience was excellent. Not only did he personally customize my order but he corrected it and fine tuned it to my specific needs. I like to keep my business as local as possible, supporting not the big box stores but supporting my neighbors who love what they do and are making a living just doing as I am. Tony and staff is the go-to in the industry for Air Rifles, custom work, entry level or high end. Money well spent. Hands down. This is the place to go. Tony will make it right from start to finish rest assured you get what you pay for.

My first order from talon tunes was for the FX hybrid hollow points.orderi.g was easy and quick, so was the shipping since I’m in Florida also! My order was sent to the wrong address, but this was fr the mail carrier not Mr. Tony! I called to order more, and explained the situation. Mr tony then took my new order over the phone and did a completely different shipping process for me! Had it over nighted for me! You can’t beat these guys on price, work, or customer service!!! I plan on getting all of my air rifles tuned and customized through these guys!!!
I’ve also takes to Mr. Tony about some other products he sells and his services. The knowledge he has about them is astounding! Of you are like me and love yo support local business, this is the guy to go to for airgun products!! I will be a customer for life!!!

Hello all,
I am a repeat customer here at Talon Tunes and cannot say enough good stuff about Tony and his business. He is, above all, honest…
Doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it is. Tony provides outstanding customer service, is responsive when communicating. He is patient with questions (I have maxxed that out 🙂 ). He is my first choice when shopping for a new rifle, an accessory, or ammo. On top of that, he is very knowledgeable about the products he sells. Give him a shot, you won’t be sorry…

I just received my 9″ moderator for talon today delivery was quick I put it on and was amazed to say the least this thing is worth every penny I can’t say enough about it. Can’t way to be off work and really send some lead down range!!!! Awesome, thanks Talon Tunes.

I was looking for a way to quite down my TalonP, during my research I kept seeing references to TalonTunes moderators. Finally I decided to order the 9” moderator for the TalonP, but was a little bit worried if it would actually work. All I can say is that the product is amazing!!! Exceeds my expectations in quality and function!

I have had the pleasure to work with Tony on his sites and making videos for his products. Hes is a stand up guy that makes GREAT products that are unmatched by no other. Keep up the great work Tony


Hi from France ? 11/23/14

I am the lucky buyer of this beautiful custom stock that I received today.
The wood is superb and actually in pristine condition. And it perfectly fits on my 2005 Talon.
Thank you Tony for answering my questions and for your fast shipping.
Last week I also received the Talon Hammer with slap modification, the 6-inch shroud and the stainless steel power wheel screw.
I confirm the good feedbacks that I read, these accessories are perfectly crafted and quite efficient.

Bravo :thumb:

Recently received this gem of a bullpup from Tony and I’m impressed to say the least. I have had Crickets and Vulcans, and this Mutant tops them in several categories. The trigger is a much better design and very easy to adjust precisely. The magazine system is much better than the fumblebum Cricket, and quicker to load than the Vulcan. The changeable cocking lever moves much more smoothly than the Cricket’s, and the hammer spring is free floating until cocked. The accuracy is stellar, as are the Crickets and Vulcans due to the outstanding CZ barrel. The stock, while not the best looking, is very ergonomic and fits like a glove. Lastly, the price is quite a bit less which means more money for a good scope or more pellets! IMHO the Mutants are expertly crafted and are the most practical high end bullpup available. I will definitely be eliminating a load of ground squirrels with this outstanding bullpup! Thanx a Bunch Tony!


He took the time out to answer my questions where as most just force you to go through email for communication. Then you get to wait a few days to get a response. Screw that noise. Same thing with Tony. I can call him up and ask questions and he’ll answer every one of them. I was buggin’ him in the past about the Vulcan and he answered all my questions even though I told him I wasn’t ready to purchase. I know, it’s common sense courtesy but most vendors these days are lacking it.

Received my Uragan .25 rifle recently. Anthony did a fantastic job on tuning the rifle to my request. It is a tackdriver. From a rest, I can hit paintballs at 65yds pretty easily. Love the rifle and am a Talon Tunes forever customer.. Thank you Anthony.



Ordered slap hammer last night and you have already notified me it has shipped – great service –thanks.

Question – I have the newer Condor with spin lock tank – can I replace the hammer from the breech end?

I know Pandemic has the video on replacing by removing the barrel, but sure looks harder that way.

I couldn’t really find an answer on the forum so I thought I’d go right to the big guy for the answer!

Got a very nice .25 Taipan Veteran from Tony at TalonTunes. Had to get the laminate stock too in Coffee. It delivered and was all I hoped for. I maxed it out shooting the 33.95 King Heavies at a 920 fps plateau and dialed it back for 900 fps. I was getting about 28 shots from a 250 bar fill

I never keep guns in factory form so, Ernest has developed a Power Plenum for the Vet. Got one on the way in a short short. Installed that dude and lowered reg pressure from 150 bar to 135 bar. I also did a little port/polish on the firing-valve and polished the dual transfer port while in there.

I am now getting 42 regulated shots with the King Heavies from a 250 bar fill at 900 fps ??. I’d say I hit the target ? Speaking of, it shoots great but will wait until I get it to 75 – 100 yards before I get excited. It does prefer the original King Heavies over the MK2s.

. That trigger, dang, why can’t the other manufacturers take a page from the Taipan book ?

BoB R   

After a lengthily discussion with Tony regarding upgrades to and existing air rifle, he suggested I consider buying a new one and consider the Taipan. I had never heard of them previously so, Tony said do some research and call him on Monday….

My shooting requirements are as follows; needs to be quiet, powerful (adjustable), accurate, quality (I’m talking wood and metal, not a big fan of “polymer” aka, plastic) and a great trigger. I live on 2.5 acres so I need this to be accurate enough for testing, quite enough to shoot off my front porch and have the ability to adjust the power output to meet the needs of both target and hunting. I HATE lousy triggers. they screw up an otherwise accurate shot.

I read and watched any and all postings and videos regarding the Taipans and quickly realized this gun sounds like it fits the bill for me. Realize that I don’t weigh everything I see and read the same. Some reviews make a lump of coal sound like am olympic ready airgun. That was not the impression I had with most regarding the Taipan….

Convinced now, I called and spoke to Tony about my options. No brainer. I was going to spend almost $700 in upgrades to my existing gun and still have just an “eh” trigger, I took the plunge. I bought the Taipan Veteran Long with CZ barrel in grey laminate stock, some pellets, the hammer adjuster, extra mags and holder, and waited for it to arrive.

When I opened the shipping box, Tony had installed the quick adjust on the hammer spring adjuster, mag holder and even test fired it and included the crony shot string. Fantastic effort by Talon Tunes for pre-testing things rather than pulling off the shelf and just shipping. I really appreciated this. Now for my observations and options of the Taipan Veteran Long….

Metal work fit and finish is superb. Cocking arm opens and closes like bank vault. Single shot tray (a great accessory for odd ball pellet shooting) and magazines a precision machine and simple in design. The stock is excellent and a great compliment to the gun. Some have complained about it but it is well though out. The front/forearm is wide and flat like varmint/benchrest PB rifles and helps with stability on a rest. It has enough “meat” for me to install a Q/D swivel stud to use my Sinclair bipod….

Now on to shooting. I mounted a Hawke Airmax FFP 6×24 IR scope in Warne rings. It took 3 pellets to zero everything. In the pouring rain, at night shooting at 23 yards, this Taipan is without a doubt the most accurate gun I own. And I have a few to say the least. The trigger is fantastic! It came set at 14 ounces, i left it as is. The accuracy was superb! Pellet on pellet. I used FX 18 GR as well as H&N 21 GR, no change in impact, same one hole.

The next day, with bipod installed and better weather, I shot some more. This damn thing is addictive. I shot almost 100 pellets and the point of impact really didn’t change ( at 23 yards). This thing is super efficient. As to sound levels, all I hear is the pellet impact and very quiet “ting” of the hammer. Amazingly quiet.

I own a half dozen CZ guns, both rifle and pistol, everyone of them is built like a tank, and accurate as hell. They KNOW how to make great barrels the old fashion way, cold hammer forging. Clearly this holds true for the tube on this Veteran.

Other things of note: I was concerned about the position of the cocking lever. Don’t be. 20 shots and it becomes second nature. I maintain grip with my right hand and use my left to reach over and cock it. I prefer this to adding complexity and parts to move it forward. My choice to get the long version was driven by two factors; bigger air reservoir, longer barrel for velocity (a bullpen keeps the overall length short but I can still get a long barrel) and better sound reduction with a longer moderator. Besides, the added weight helps accuracy IMHO.

So, am I happy? No. Thrilled and amazed is more appropriate! I have already shot a full tin and into the next one. It is stunning to me the accuracy. I laugh and shack my head when I release the magnificent trigger. I can put shots through the hole in my steel ram target at will. It is about 3/8 of inch in diameter… and did it many times at almost 25 yards. This gun now begs me to push out to 50 yards and beyond. Thats where I will be testing pellets and velocities to dial things in just right.

Overall, just buy this gun IF; you love high quality metalwork and wood, robust build, simple operation, crazy accuracy, phenomenal trigger and enjoy shooting rather than spending a fortune on “fixing” flaws. The Taipan Veteran will last a lifetime and give enjoyment beyond its price. As a matter of fact, this gun is worth it if it sold at $2K plus, easily! (Tony, leave the price where it is! I want to buy another one, maybe in .25???)

Tony at Talon Tunes provides advice and service the way things should be done. He picks up the phone, tests what he ships to you and knows his products. Unheard of nowadays. He was spot on connecting me with the gun that fills my needs perfectly. He has a customer for life and my sincerest thanks for the great advice and nailing it with connecting me to my most favorite rifle.

Best Wishes

Ordered my rifle 10/9/19. Tony set up my rifle as we discussed. Recieved the following week. Rifle is perfect in all aspects. Pushing 60fpe with 33.95 JSB. One hole accuracy at 28 yrds. Took two squirrels first hunt with it 26, & 40 yrds. Completely satisfied with Talon Tunes. Joseph K Akron, Ohio

Got the gauge installed! Thanks…back to shooting ?


Received my quad rail today, very sturdy and perfect fit.

I removed the handguard, so I could fit the rail all the way to the end of frame. Doing that, I cannot anymore adjust the power-wheel – but it ain’t issue for me as I don’t need to touch it anyways. It would easily fit without removing handguard even in escape’s shorther frame, but wanted it this way.


I think it looks great: https://ibb.co/m7rZvG

Testimonial * Not long ago I discovered coyotes within 50 yards of my house at night. I called Tony for advice. He suggested a new .25 cal. barrel for my Airforce Condor. He prepped my new barrel and shipped it along with the 37 gr. hollow point slugs that he recommended, two new breech seal orings, and got it all in the mail that same day. Now that’s what I call service! The new combo is accurate and powerful and my pests are all gone. Tony gets it done. Thanks Tony.

Thanks Anthony- I appreciate doing business with people that have integrity in their product and personable and prompt with their customer service. I will continue to use your products and refer you to future clientele. Talk soon-Testimonial *

Author *Steve Tunder   

Testimonial *Just wanted to thank Tony for his excellent products. I own a Airforce Condor .25 cal original…not the SS. I love the loud bang and that is why I went with the original. The neighbors did not like the loud bang. So……I decided to modify the Condor to make it quieter and more accurate.

First thing I bought was the 14 inch suppressor. It really cut down on the noise. I was still getting the supersonic crack of the pellets. The Condors come from the factory pretty hot. I adjusted the gun to cut down on the speed of the pellets and my accuracy went ballistic. Now I have a gun that was quiet and accurate. But not as accurate as it could be it seems.

Since I loved the quality of the suppressor, I decided to get just about everything I could to make the Condor truly impressive. So I ordered the adjustable top hat. The trigger spring. The tank drop down. The fiber tank. The anti slap brass heavy duty hammer. The WokGuard15 MK2. The stainless steel allen nut for the power adjuster. I added a more comfortable AR15 handle grip and modified it to fit the Condor.

All I can say is that now this gun is just plain crazy accurate and more fun to shoot. I expect it to do hole in hole at 50 yards most of the time. I expect it to nail the bulls eye at 100 and beyond. No pest is safe anywhere within 150 yards. It is what the gun should be from the factory.

The biggest gains in accuracy was the installation of the adjustable top hat and the anti slap hammer. But the other mods were together just as fantastic because it made the gun a more comfortable better gun to shoot.

Thanks Tony for your awesome products.


Thank you Mr. Tony. I just received my Taipan Veteran Compact .25 today and am completely ecstatic about my purchase from Talon Tunes. I’m not even sure where to start. Guess I can start off with the trigger, it is definitely set up perfectly for me, extremely crisp break and set at the perfect trigger pull for me, nice and light. Next is the accuracy, out of the box using JSB Exact King Diabolo 25.39gr at 45 yards just blew me away, pretty much pellet on pellet as long as I did my part. And finally just how quiet and back yard friendly it is especially with a Donnyfl Tatsu attached, all I heard was the pellet hitting the back stop. I can not thank you enough Mr Tony for taking the time setting this rifle up for me and taking the time out of your day to answer any questions I had. Now to start setting aside some extra money for a .22 version. Thank you again.


Hi Tony, the Vet arrived today – all that I can say is WOW! This thing is gorgeous! I wish that I would have got into one sooner. I’m in awe of the fit, finish, and function.

Also, I appreciate the quick turnaround. I’ll likely contact you again soon for a 25 long ?

I finally went on my first Mountain bike / Airgun hunt. I have wanted a gun that I could take down and put in a pack and ride to and through my hunting destinations. A deal came up on a Talon SS .22 and thought I would give it a try. After a great tune by Anthony266 this gun was shooting real nice. Being a scant 32 inches long and under 7lb scoped, I set out for my local areas.
I was riding through a field and lo and behold I saw 6 crows land to get a drink of water. I quickly screwed the bottle on and loaded the gun. I set up my bipod and hunkered down for my first “ out of the backpack shot.” The pellet went thwap and feathers flew but he took off—to low. I was a little anxious and it showed. I kept riding and went to a spot where I new of some Ground Squirrels. I rode in behind a building and assembled my gun (10 seconds). There he was sitting up on his honches looking around. I crept forward and then set up the bipod, took aim at this 30 yard target and thwap—got him. Another 30 yards to my left was his bunk mate wondering what was going on—Thwapp—got him. Feeling pretty good about this and just about ready to go home, another GS popped his head up another 30 yards to the left. I crept over to a rise and set up the bipod. This made him about a 40 yard shot. I was using Kodiaks and thought the pellet would drop some so I aimed for the head thinking if it dropped the pellet would hit vitals and be a clean hit either way. Thwapp!! Down he went. I went over to the area where I hit him and sure enough the pellet went right in the side of his head. Wow. I either jerked up a bit when I shot or the pellet had very little fall in the 40 yards. (next time I will bring my camera).
This gun loves CP’s, JSB’s , Kodiaks and Predators to about 25 yards. All these pellets have a very close POI at closer range so no worries of clicking your scope or counting mildots. I pretty much put the cross hairs on the target in the 20 to 40 yard range. This gun is amazingly quiet, just a thong sound of the hammer hitting. It is very easy to load, you just push the bolt forward, load the pellet and bring it back. It’s not as nice as a multishot but hey you can’t have everything. The gun takes so little effort to load and cock that even a youngster could load this gun with no problem. This little gun is set to about 23-25 fpe (can be set higher). It shoots about 840 fps down to about 805 for thirty shots. At 20 yards however, I can shoot a good 50 times with no POI change before a fill. Removing the bottle is a snap. Simply unscrew, no back pressure or anything to worry about, very easy. Another interesting thing is how the gun looses its pressure. Most PCP guns have a shooting curve that usually starts low and then climbs, and goes back to low. The Talon simply shoots from high to low. This type of pressure regulation may be a bit more predictable and definitely not a problem. The Take Down nature of this gun is a rare feature in airgunning. It makes travel, hiking, and biking with this gun an easy thing to do. In my research on this gun I found very little talk about this feature (except Jim C.) I am going to design a travel backpack for this gun and have it made by a friend who works with such materials.
This gun has always had my curiosity with all the heated debate over this gun. Many do not like the military look and quickly dismiss it. Many tinker with this gun and mess it up and get frustrated. Many shoot these guns right out of the box and they shoot well. Some have problems out of the box. I do know that this gun shoots well and yes it has been tuned but hey, people buy guns for 5 times the price and tune them as well. If you buy one of these guns I would recommend sending it straight away to Anthony266 for a tune. You will then be on your way to shooting a very interesting, fun, accurate, powerful, quiet, small, portable, enjoyable gun.
Stay tuned for the upcoming side by side comparison review with an Air Arms TDR.

Special thanks to Anthony Annuzzi for his great work and to McSquidly for finding me this gun.
Happy Shooting

Condor SS from Talon Tunes is the real deal. Recieved my order as promised (perfomance and time). This gun will hold a dime size group at 50 yards with power to spare. Tony has great cutomer service and his work speaks for its self. If you want an amazing gun I highly recommend you get one from Tony. Thanks from Guam

Testimonial *Hey Tony, just wanted to say thank you very much for the beautiful work you put into my .25 Condor ss rifle. It’s a beast and I haven’t put it down yet.Every thing they said about you is true,you are the man.I will be posting some photos as soon as I get some time. Just had to give you a shout out. Thanks again.Marvin


As a new owner of a Condor SS and new to the whole pellet gun world I want to thank Tony for his help. He spent time answering all my questions about upgrading my Condor. New hammer, top hat, and shroud on its way. Great company to work with. Easy to order and quick shipping. Thanks again!

Tony Talon Tunes The Italian Stallion of Airguns!!!April 15 2016 at 7:23 PM Joseph Lamonica (Login joecuz-velocity)
I had my first dealing with the Italian Stallion & after yrs hearing all these great things about Tony I finally had the opportunity to speak with him & deal with him & I can truly say is the rumors of him being great to deal with & how takes his time to satisfy everyone…well they’re all true….Thanks Again!!


Hey Tony,

That is not only for the Swag that you took the time to ship out to me, but also for everything that you do to support our community and sponsor these Forums!
Great idea throwing in a few biz cards too. I will be certain to pass them along to those that are seriously interested into how they can get outfitted with the same type of gear as I have…
I always recieve alot of attention whenever I head out to the range
So far I have had two people that were powder burner types that actually followed thru and started in on the airgun stuff.
It will be very beneficial to have an actual card to send those folks that always ask,,, “how fast, how far, HOW MUCH?”!
I can’t commend you enough for the way you have managed the website. I really appreciate how neutral and unbiased you remain and allow for uncensored dialog ….. It took me a minute to realize that you and your biz were responsible for these forums. Thats how transparent and unbiased you have managed to be! I am sure it can be tough at times. But I want you to know that it speaks largely of your integrity and confidence in what you do!
Thanks for the decals, and cards! I will do my best to help promote some of your products when opprotunity presents itself.
– :8: dougroundup.
? Now let’s see where I should place these decals? Hmmm? One for my .257 Anvil Flight Gun Case. One will go on my Chrony. One for my Air Compressor, and yet another two more for my Air Tanks….. Wow! I am gonna need more stickers! :rofl: It always pays to advertise! :rofl:


Got this beauty of a Vulcan today from Tony…too late to do much with it but…wow!


I called Tony at Talon Tunes and asked what was the best bullpup on the market and he turned me on to the Vulcan from the Czech Republic. This gun is totally amazing. Compact – 26 inches, lightweight – just 6 pounds, powerful – well over 930 fps, accurate – able to hit targets over 100 yards away, and sexy!
If your in the market for a bullpup then I suggest the Vulcan. You won’t be sorry. These airguns are not cheap but if you’re already committed to buying one then why not spent the extra money and go from a good airgun to a great one and let Tony tune it and make it sing like a canary. This is my second airgun. The first one is the CONDOR SS and it’s another beauty from talon tunes.

People (mostly men) get an airgun for various reasons:
Match contestant
Pest eradication
But for me it brought back memories of when I was a kid and how much I enjoyed shooting my BB & pellet guns. I have plenty of guns at my house but these are far safer and more fun to shoot.
You only live once so buy one that will make you happy for a very very long time. I’m totally satisfied and I’m sure I’ll buy another one in the future. Thanks Tony for your expertise in this field, I really appreciate your dedication and hard work.


Michael Holman   

I have a Air Force Condor SS in .25. I have fitted it with the TT hammer and Top Hat, as well as the Tank adapter. I use the large restrictor for my general shooting with Beeman CrowMags and I remove the restrictor to shoot 55 grain cast pellets producing 81 FPE to hunt pigs. So far I have killed a 50# and
a 100# pig, Talon Tune the only way to go.


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


Great! Seller
Fasstttt Shipping
I order an FX and comes y great packing very secure


Thanks Tony for a flawless transaction. My marauder pistol gauge failed so i tried the Talon Tunes air gauge. I received it packaged in thick bubble wrap. The design and quality was rock solid and i am back shooting with no problems. Thanks again.

Hi Tony,
Well, arrived a little late at home, but not too late to unbox and put a scope on and – oh yes – send some JSBs down range or rather down garage.

I am at the point where I have to recognize that I’m missing words in your language to describe the effect that this fine rifle of yours has on me, to describe my emotion. This is a masterpiece, but hey – you forgot to sign. Every artist signs his work, normally ?
I consider your signature to be graved on every single pellet that will leave the barrel. Really, Tony, it was worth the wait, super-smooth action, indescribable sound when firing (I just love this sound) and the full “whack” when the pellet hits the backstop. Man… It’s just pure amazement and joy, hard to stop when the light goes down.
Can’t wait to get her working outside on bigger distances. I saw your 30 yard target, I know what she’s capable of, this is important and reassuring. This is going to be big fun.
Thanks also for the shirt, you were right, M is perfect, thank you for the stickers and your cards. I’ll make good use of it.
One little regret nevertheless… that I didn’t call you earlier for this rifle, haha.
This is great work, and I don’t know how to say thank you in the most adequate way.
Keep up this great work, Tony.
Thank you, my friend.

Testimonial * this air force condor had a tune and camo, setup as a 50-60 ft lbs coon and small game getter. Accuracy has been top notch with consistent 1 hole groups, I’m confident that this week will bring 40-50 yard groups with similar results. Tony was very easy to work with and offers a lot of options for the air force guns. Future plans include upping the power while keeping the accuracy. Thank you talon tunes for a positive experience and look forward to working with you on future modifications.

TalonTunes TDR rifle

Arrived yesterday. Beautiful work on the valves and general fit and finish.

Big bottle with your mod is very cool. Design is your calling, Tony. The fact that your design has a gauge, takes a Foster and gets the biomechanics right when shouldering the gun is going to be a game changer. Need to get a few hundred rounds through the platform before I can say much conclusively about the new system, but it looks like something McCasslin should have figured out years ago.

Paul S.   

Hi Tony,

Thanks again for calling Friday, your advice and wisdom are greatly appreciated. After talking, I approached the task with renewed confidence and was able to break the valve free from the bottle without adding heat and without further cosmetic damage.

My new TTTA and QC Top hat are performing perfectly, a post upgrade shooting session on my range put a big smile on my face. I can tell I’ll be needing to order an additional TTTA for my 2nd tank to make a matched pair. I’ll be placing another order with you later on this April.

Thanks also for the advice on Venom front-grip fit, As you suggested, the vise and rubber mallet did the trick with a couple taps, no alterations needed. What a marked improvement the Venoms add, (both functionally and cosmetically)… Sweet!

Another satisfied loyal customer with intentions for further repeat business, what more can you ask for. ?

Thanks again Tony,

Paul Smith

George Obrien   

Hi Tony,
Just wanted to drop you and line and tell you how much I appreciate the mod’s to the Condor.

I fire lapped the barrel and while I was doing that, I took off the shroud. Wow! What a difference that
made. Definitely like it better shrouded. In fact, my wife came outside and asked “What was that?”
thinking I was shooting a .22 rimfire. LOL

Next, I sighted it in using the Nielsen Ammo Specialty 45 grain ‘Massive’ HP bullet. At 3400 psi and PW 5, the
first 5 shots averaged 997 fps for K.E. of 99.3 ft. lbs. at 2 meters from the muzzle! It is truly a beast.

Thanks again, Tony. The squirrels, raccoons and foxes don’t stand a chance.


Hey Tony;
I wanted to say thanks for the great (as usual) service!
My Talon-Dor loves those new JSB heavies and the power spring gave me just the little bit of “boost” I was looking for. I’m getting just over 144 ft/lbs with the Black Mamba’s and printing “cloverleaf” patterns at 75 yards. Couldn’t do it without YOUR parts. A little harder to adjust the power wheel with the new spring but that was to be expected.
I tried to post a review on the Talon Tunes site for the spring but was having trouble navigating the site. Also failed at sending you a PM. I’ll keep trying to post a review!
Thanks again for the great service!

I got a TT-Marauder in .22 cal and I love it. To say that I can clover leaf at 37 yards is saying something really bad about how my day is going. When I have it sighted in, I can usually put a group of three through the same hole. Maybe a tad off.

Then there is the gun. Tell Tony you want all the extras, extended air tube, black stock, and when you are done you will have a very quiet plinker/varmint hunter that will take out a squirrel at 50+ yards (I just shot one off the tele-pole the other morning…) and is QUIET, the quietest air gun I have ever bought. And I can STILL make it quieter with a baffle extension and some more mods that I found online.

Here is the site:

The guy is named Tony and he USED to advertise the TT-Marauders, but I do not see them anymore so you might want to ask him. They start at $675 but I paid around $1100 for mine by the time it was finished. I am very happy with it. It shoots around 900FPS, but I can adjust that, and I get about 30 shots per fill but with the quick fill attachment adn the adapter that I got from Pyramid air ($29) It takes me about 30 seconds to refill. I shoot jumbo diablos domed around 18.xxgr.

Oh, it looks like the TT marauder is on the old site:


You should still ask him though.

Hey, great to hear from you. You beat me to the punch communicating.

The gun is great and I am really impressed with your work. I have been working so much overtime I did not get to try the gun until this past Friday. After shooting it after work, I couldn’t go to sleep that evening because of looking at Talon Tunes blogs and Air Force YouTube videos. Didn’t go to sleep until 2:00 am and then woke up at 5:30, dreaming of the gun the whole time . . . reminiscent of a kid at Christmas! I was embarrassed at this since I am 56 years old. Just flat gave up on going to work Saturday because I knew my brain wouldn’t be there. Instead, I spent time zeroing in the gun and then spent a few hours with 2 of my friends showing them the gun and letting them shoot it. The tank adapter is money double well spent with both the lower tank axis and the pressure gauge combined. And I am sure you hear it a lot, the shroud is the most notable bonus of all.

Regardless, I am quite pleased with the gun and would have it done all over again if need be. Now that I have the gun sighted in, my goal is to see how many squirrels I can dispatch without a miss. Any squirrel, English sparrow or starling within my fence line is in serious danger.

Much thanks for all you have done!

Best wishes to you and all your endeavors,

John C. M****


What an outstanding and awesome AIRGUN! I purchased the AirForce CONDOR SS .22. I had Tony add all the bells and whistles to this tactical black weapon and it had not disappointed me in the least. There is not another airgun on the market that can match the power it possess. Extremely accurate and easy to shoot. Having a top of the line scope doesn’t hurt neither. If you decided to purchase one then get Tony to update and make it ten times better than what the manufacturer sells to the public. You will not be disappointed.




Hello Tony
Received my Vulcan today and everything arrived safely and it is a beauty. Appreciate your careful packing and service. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Joseph Boothe   

I thankTalon Tunes for producing quality products for a quality airgun. Anthony is knowledgeable of the ins and outs of these guns so when you buy from him or have a question it is a precise fit or answer. That is a level of comfort that is value in it’s own. FYI I did a full internal upgrade with trigger spring, CF bottle and 9″ TT moderator for my Talon ss. Vary happy no cheep parts, no making adjustments to fit. Like I said feel like a pro and buy with confidence at Talon Tunes.


Tony, much mahalos for your moderator! What a BIG DIFFERENCE a stock .25 TALON P noise is compared to your moderatir!! im still pushing the plastic water filled bottles out at 110 yards! It is still accurate, AND MUCH QUIETTER NOW! love it! YOU DA MAN!! Mahalos again, John

Testimonial *I was one of the first people to receive a Silencer in 2016. I’ve shot this gun over a thousand times. and it is as good now as it was in the beginning. Although it may take some time to get yours, your Texan will thank you for it.

Hi Tony, Just wanted to write a testy on the Tactic in .25 cal. It is now April 12, 2019 and I have been putting this gun through it’s paces for almost 4 months … shot thousands of rounds through it now and got a pretty good grasp of what the gun will do. First off it is reliable, the only problem I have had with it was a barrel o-ring that I shot out and had a ton of trouble getting my fat little fingers in the breach to replace … in fact I had so much trouble that I had to pull the barrel out to replace it but a friend of mine assured me that the gun was simple to take down and I had no problem getting it back together again. The side lever cocking handle is beautiful, smooth and works first time every time. I ordered a Sumo for the gun and it is at least as quiet as my Wildcat with the Sumo on it … in other words VERY quiet! The finish on the gun stock is a little on the slick side but very nice indeed and it makes the grain of the wood stand out like a fine piece of furniture. I keep the gun in my “man cave” and usually it has the window open so whatever the humidity is outside or the temperature, that is what the gun is exposed to night and day. I keep a little Balistol on the metal parts and there is no sign of any rust or corrosion or anything else. The regulator is as good as a regulator can be with an extreme spread of only 8 fps. The cheekpiece is truly a pleasure to nuzzle my face against, especially on a cold morning. The trigger breaks clean and crisp at about 10 oz. It takes about 20 shots to season in a freshly cleaned barrel and you will get about 100 rounds before it needs cleaning again … that is if you are looking for pin point accuracy, but if 1 inch groups at 75 yards are fine with you … you can probably go 150 rounds before the fouling will take you outside that 1 inch group margin. Accuracy??? Well, I don’t think I would be stretching the truth too much in saying that this gun is the most accurate “air gun” I have ever shot … in fact it may very well be THE most accurate “gun” I have ever shot. At 75 yards with a clean barrel I have gotten a few 1/4″ groups but the norm is 1/2″ 10 shot groups. At 100 yards it will usually do just a tad over 1″. I truly love this thing. If a gun is not accurate, you might as well wire it up and make a lamp stand out of it. I hate people who take a gun out and shoot a couple of rounds out of it and declare it to be a laser so I have spent close to 4 months putting this gun through it’s paces and it outshoots my Impact, my Wildcat, my Matador R5M and my Marauders. Just want to thank you Tony for putting a smile on my face every day and I’m not ashamed to say that I have given this gun more than one kiss when she shoots one hole groups at 100 yards because that is as good as it gets with ANY air gun.

TalonTunes Tony is the Man!!!
postby Airbrained » 17 Jun 2016 02:16 pm

I can’t say enough good things about Tony from TalonTunes he was patient with me when I was trying to buy this new EdGun Matador short .25 and he had the gun at my doorstep in just 3 days, that’s crazy. Then he turns around and ships my pellets with a t-shirt and TalonTunes stickers so I can personalize some of my gear. This guy is easy to deal with and he has a loyal customer for life in me. Thanks again Tony I’ll keep you updated along with the rest of the guys here at the forum with shot strings,pictures and performance.

Chris Dedmon   

WOW! The leshiy is awesome! I ordered the gun, scope, and after installing a half inch riser on the picatiny, I have been dropping raccoons around my house. This thing is super accurate and quite. I love this gun!

Mike Maurer   

I just purchased and installed a 9″ shroud and quick change top hat from Tony for my .22 Condor SS.
Wow! Best money I ever spent! The shroud is professionally crafted and machined and boy does it quiet the Condor down – back yard shooting friendly in all neighborhoods. The quick change top hat adds amazing consistency to those shot strings and gives me the flexibility to shoot different weight pellets and conserve air.
The installations of these items is simple, as Tony will talk you through the process or send you a video.
Please be patient with Tony when making your orders as there is a short waiting period and I can see why – every Condor owner should have and want these items. All good things are worth waiting for!
Thanks Tony – this will not be my last purchase from Talon Tunes.


Just wanted to say thanks for the 2 great products I previously purchased.The edgun and the barrel are both Awesome.


I first of all want to “thank” you folks for singing the praises of the Cricket. I almost pulled the trigger on buying a Bobcat? It was your posts here that steered me to the Cricket. So “thank you all”!

Next I want to “thank” Tony here [Talontunes]. What a great guy! I purchased the above .25 Cricket Standard Tactical along with the Hawke Sidewinder 6.5 x 20 x 42 Tactical Scope from Tony. He graciously tuned it up for me, and had it in my hands within mere days. I had been waiting going on 12 weeks for the same outfit from another dealer. I heard every song and dance I could handle before I cancelled my order with him and contacted Tony.
I guess I was wearing the same grin every new Cricket owner puts on after firing their first group. A single ragged hole at 30 yards! I foresee a long and happy future with my new Cricket. Thanks again!


Scott Bolden   

I bought an extreme valve, regulator, new hammer, and spring from a company that I didn’t know was overseas. So far, the valve and regulator are working, but the spring and hammer have given me a fit from day one.
I thought I had installed them correctly as per their instructions. Well, as of last Friday, there was a complete fail. I have tried and tried to ask them for the correct install procedure, and they keep telling me the same thing. Their instructions are for changing barrels.
Today I finally called Talon Tunes and spoke with Tony. I felt bad about asking someone how to fix another companies problem, but he did.
I’m new to this hobby, and didn’t really see Talon Tunes until I was looking for answers. What a great company. I just purchased a new valve, regulator, and a WHOLE LOT MORE for less than these clowns sold me. No more P-P Tunes for meTalon Tunes will be my go to from now on.

Rescued MrodMay 19 2015 at 8:15 AM Dave L (Login Buzzurd5)
Tony at Talontunes rescued my Mrod. Thank you Tony,my gun is now what I thought it could be! I’m the guy who posted March 30 about the Mrod that had cocking issues that were never resolved. Tony tuned my talon p for me and turned it into a smooth cocking gun with a great trigger, it’s way powerful and incredibly accurate. So I knew where to send my ailing Mrod. I explained the story to him and asked him to do his full tune,and tell me what the other guy did or didn’t do. The other guys tune cost $500 and Tonys cost $300. Tony told me that the job the other guy did was terrible. Tonys tune covered everything. The other guys tune didn’t. Outcome is great,other than spending more money. I’m on the waiting list for a AAA .25 condor,and I don’t care how long it takes because I know what I’ll get! There will be a dealer boi on that page in the next day or two. Thanks again Tony!

Duane Schafer   

Have Tony do the magic. Own a condor ss in .22. Shooting 3/4 to1 inch groups at 75 yds free hand and it will get better. His tophat and shroud are top notch . Like all say its quiet accurate and deadly on small game. wow. will order again in the future. Tony knows these rifles . thanks tony from a happy man.

Randy Harding   

I just wanted to let Tony know what a hell of a gun he built for me. Tony built me a .25 condor with most of the services he offers this gun is a beast by far the most powerful and most accurate airgun i have ever shot .I really want to tell Tony how sorry i am for bugging the hell out of him wondering when can i get my gun i now know for for a fact you cant rush a good thing .Tonys work is amazing THANKS.

Gene Palmer   

Just finished reading over the testimonials page and realize that there isn’t really anything I could say that hasn’t already been nailed down: service, parts and a customized gun that is second to none! I’m fortunate enough to have been a three time customer to Tonys magic touch and now have one gun that is perfectly suited to take everything from frogs to hogs. With the stock spring and his adjustable top hat with the larger restrictor this .25 cal. gun is a subsonic tack driver. My longest shot to date with this setup is a 231 yard kill on a chunky woodchuck. Longest squirrel is a 113 yard head shot. After a five minute change to a heavier spring and a second tank with a valve for all out power with slugs this combo has been proven to consistently and cleanly dispatch larger game. My largest kill came this last fall; a 485 pound beast felled instantly by a 23 yard shot to the ear from my stand. I believe this is most likely the largest critter EVER harvested by a .25 cal. pneumatic in New York State! A picture can be worth a thousand words. The results: 175 lb. black pig, 92 lb.beautiful silver pig, and the big dog, 55 lb. from 40 yards. Photos submitted to the customer gallery. If your looking for a piece of equipment that’s capable of challenging anyone’s skill, then don’t even consider any place but TALON TUNES!

Received my Uragan .25 rifle recently. Anthony did a fantastic job on tuning the rifle to my request. It is a tackdriver. From a rest, I can hit paintballs at 65yds pretty easily. Love the rifle and am a Talon Tunes forever customer.. Thank you Anthony.


Message: wow! thanks for the SUPER service. best regards, wally

Kevin C. 11/19/14   

Tony, the gun arrived last night. Its everything I was hoping for. I wasn’t sure about the mods at first but the hammer is so much quieter then my other talonP and the insert you drilled out for me got the velocity absolutely perfect for the jsb’s I like to shoot. And the power I can get with surefire slugs or soft cast 25acp bullets is just incredible for a 12in barrel.
I use these bullets custom sized to .253 and lubed with moly as my raccoon load in my other talonP. (halfway down page)
The shroud is by far the best part. I was expecting it to get close to my 25 marauder with a longer fully shrouded barrel but your 9in shroud is noticeably quieter than my marauder shooting the same velocity. In fact a friend brought his 25 talonSS over and my talonP with your shroud was definitely quieter. This was my first Airforce Airgun with any aftermarket stuff and I can already say this is going to quickly become my favorite hunter. I will be buying anything airforce I need from you from now on.

Quinton A.   

I just received my .25 cal Vulcan 2 Tactic Synthetic stock from Tony. Let me just say I have never gotten such excellent professional and personal customer service from any other dealer period. Tony was a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions before I purchased the rifle and he even called me 15 minutes prior to shipping my gun to make sure I had everything I needed. Sure enough 15 minutes later my tracking number was emailed. The gun arrived safely and quickly. Tony had tested the rifle over a chrony and included a 5 shot group at 30 yds. This rifle is accurate! I can’t wait to take it hunting. I was pleasantly surprised of the weight of this rifle, it looks heavier than it is. Build quality is exceptional. I can not say enough good things about this purchase and the customer service Tony provides! Talon Tunes and Tony gets an A+ from me and my future business. Thanks Tony!

Jack L   

I sent my Condor SS to Tony and he transformed it from a good air rifle to a great air rifle with his tune and his quick change top hat.
This Condor is also fitted with Tony’s shroud and is now very quiet.
I could not believe how smooth the trigger, safety and breech work now. The stiffness from the factory is gone and the difference is like night and day.
Using JSB Exact King 25 cal pellets, I am slaughtering starlings with ease out to 60 yards in even gusty winds high in the tree tops.
This gun can now shoot and kill woodchucks in our hayfields up to 80 yards away and they never hear it coming.
Great communications and ease of transfer by Tony.
He is a master at what he does with these air rifles.

Rick Hardway   

The thing is a work of art. It fits the Texan rifle perfectly. Adds very little length or weight to the front of the rifle and does a very good job of taming the muzzle blast of the 45 cal. I looked and looked for moderator that complimented the set up without looking like a glob of metal on the end of the barrel and worked to suppress the sound as well, this is it. It’s not going to turn the gun into something you’ll use in a backyard in the city but it is Works period.
Thank you Tony!

Author *Johnnyboy from EWA BEACH, HAWAII   

Testimonial *I haven’t been on here since the day after I got Tony”s 6″ moderator or if you may, suppressor. I was impressed at how much quieter it became.. Therefore, I wanted to push the envelope more and decided to modify my Talon P a little more. I installed Tony’s, lighter hammer, tophat valve….to get that more..uuummpphhh.. God is my witness, I put a 10 ounce coffee cup…. 186 yards away, using my range finder. FIRST SHOT, using JSB DIABLO .25 CAL. @ 25.39 grains…I HIT THAT CUP!!!!!! FIRST SHOT!!!!!! Now, I believe all fo you guys WHO says, the TALON P loves this pellet…and IS VERY ACCURATE!!! The Talon P ONLY HAS a 12 inch LW Barrel…….How’s that for accuracy!! Next step, I wanted to see HOW STRONG this Talon P is. I put a Honda Car hood 30 yards away….The JSB punctured the first skin, but did not go completely thru. I was impressed… but was anxious to use the Skenco pellets with metal tip. Loaded one in chamber and just picked a spot to shoot. Lo and behold, at 30 yards away…….NOT ONLY DID IT GO COMPLETELY THRU THE FIRST SKIN,BUT……IT WENT THRU THE FIRST SKIN……AND……THE REINFORCING RIB AS A CROSS BRACE FOR THE HOOD!!! Went completely thru as if it was paper!! I was so impressed with this 12 inch pcp pistol, I took it out for pig hunting. I used the EUNJIN 41 grain pellets to do head shot…and….not only is it much quieter then my friends 7mm magnum savage that scares the whole bunch on one shot. I was able to shoot the other two good sized pigs that were just eating. The pigs did not hear my pcp at 67 yards away!!!! To summarize, IF YOU WANT A QUIETER, MORE POWER, AND ACCUTE ACCURACY, GO MY ROUTE USING TONY’S PRODUCTS. My next game will mountain goats….using custom made 44 grain bullets(not pellets) form john the camper. If youre in Hawaii, all you PCP guys should get with me , as im starting a eradication safari soon…..AGAIN, MUCH MAHALOS MR. TONY FOR YOUR “NO KA OI” (NUMBER 1) PRODUCTS!!! Johnnyboy from EWA BEACH

Hi Tony,

Sorry I’ve been MIA. Want to thank you for customizing the TalonP. Finally got to fire off some rounds using the rat sniper the week before Christmas. Crazy awesome gun!

Saw the post on your Tag. You can tell everyone it’s the real deal! Scary powerful!

With the rat snipers, the gun is very quiet…………I took it to the island of Hawaii for some play time. Believe it or not, I took down a boar around 50 lbs. Very impressive for what originated as a pistol.



I just received my 9″ moderator forTalontunes today delivery was quick I put it on and was amazed to say the least this thing is worth every penny I can’t say enough about it. Can’t way to be off work and really send some lead down range!!!! Awesome, thanks Talon Tunes.

I wanted to thank you again for my custom TalonP. The 9in shroud is amazing! Even after all the power mods it measures only 46db at the muzzle with a LC1 decibel meter. I was looking for a special purpose fox and coon gun that was as compact as possible and you delivered EXACTLY what I asked for. With the restriction removed from the quick change top hat it throws heavy JSB’s at 990fps from that little 12in barrel, and with enough precision and consistency to shoot half inch groups at 50 yards all day long.
I’m attaching a pic of my furthest airgun kill to date, taken at 91 yards with my TalonTunes TalonP. It took a full 5mil hold which maxed out my Hawke reticle at 10x. No other airgun so light and compact could give me the power and precision for such a long head shot.

P.S. You mentioned a TalTune Tshirt on the phone yesterday, I wear size XL, black if avail

Anthony . S   

I was in the market for my first high end PCP rifle. I did not want to take a chance on spending a lot of saved up play funds and be disappointed with my purchase. So i surf the net left and right comparing several ratings and comments on a many different PCP rifles . After all the comments and comparing i was still at a lost . Then I came across TALON TUNES . COM .. I spoke with Mr. Tony and i mentioned to him that i was looking for a high end, low weight , back yard friendly Bullpup PCP rifle. He introduced to the Vulcan 2 Raven equipped with a sumo moderator, magazine holder , extra magazines, Fill probe, user manual, storage case and the Triple T Magic touch AKA”Tony Touch Tuning” . I just received My Vulcan 2 yesterday and i am so very satisfied and happy with my first high end PCP rifle Tony it is exactly how you said it would be . TALON TUNES i am all in with your products and services. Mr. Tony Thank You for making my first high end purchase a very confident and satisfying experience. Mr. Tony can you please send me a hat with your company logo i would gladly sport it and represent..


I just took the plunge into the PCP world and bought a Cricket .25, air tank and Shoebox compressor. I’ve been talking to different companies over the past year trying to decide what all to get and Tony was by far the most helpful and patient guy of any I’ve talked with. We’ve had many conversations and Tony either always took the time to talk or would always return my call. Can’t say enough about the guy. I also asked him to put a picatinny rail on the bottom of the stock and he did a fantastic job!

Thanks Tony!

I recently bought a Taipan Veteran, Standard 22. Tony delivered it promptly, with trigger adjustment and tuning as requested. Great work!

Dave L.   

Dave Larson – October 26, 2014:

I had a talon P and loved it ,except for a very hard trigger. After I learned that the trigger was not adjustable,I asked Tony what he could do for it.After talking about the options (selling the gun,or have Tony tune it and polish the trigger),I decided to have him do his magic! And he was always very clear about my trigger,he said that he could make it break cleaner. When I got the gun back I could not have been more impressed! Not only did the tune totally change the gun,(I also got the large tank,and his own top hat )with this said,I also must say that I was noticing little improvements like the cocking action was totally smooth now. And the trigger is totally fine,it breaks cleanly and is very acceptable. This is now pretty much my favorite gun in every way! I am so impressed that I am going to post a video with me shooting the Talon P at 60 yards , getting incredibly tight groups. Also hitting a four inch steel disk repeatedly at 100 yards! With a pistol!! There is no way I could do this before Tonys tune, and I tried! In the video I will show how many usable shots I get, it is so many I will not say here,because it sounds like BS. There will be a link to the video as soon as I get it done. Thanks Tony!!! This gun is so fun!


I guess all I’ve read about you is true. I found signs of clipping on one of the baffles in the shroud as well as on the end cap. I honed out all the baffles and end cap a little and the results are amazing.Even ammo that I had tossed aside as junk is now grouping reasonably well. I had pretty much resigned myself to the idea that I was going to send you my rifle and pay you to tune it up. You not only took the time to take a personal call, but you also saved me a lot of down time and expense. I can’t thank you enough Tony. You can be assured that I will bring you business in the future.


I bought the shroud for my condor with the 24″ barrel now I can shoot in my back yard makes a night and day diiference but now I need to do the hammer slap mod cus that is all u hear is the hammer and pellet impact

Joel Jimmerson   

Dealing with these guys is easy and their turnaround time is extremely fast. I’ve purchased several items for the Airforce Condor and every one has generally exceeded my expectations in terms of design and quality. I’ve got another item in the shopping cart as we speak and I will continue to be a dedicated customer.

9/24/2015I just have to tell you about this rifle that Tony at Talontunes built for me. I have it mounted in a Maddog bench rest stock that’s a great platform for long range shooting. The rifle has Tony’s newest shroud he just completed,let me tell you it is so quiet that when I first shot it I was sure it malfunctioned. It’s a .25 at full power,shooting in the high 900s. When you shoot it,it sounds like you dropped your keys on the floor from knee high!! Then you hear the sound of the pellet smack the steel target and it is way louder than the report of the rifle! So far I haven’t been able to get it to a bench yet,but shooting off a dresser out my backdoor at 85yds I am able to get 5 shot groups around 3/4 of an inch! I can imagine how good it will be on the bench with my rest and bag! Oh and also,if you’re not too fond of Airforce triggers (they seem too hard for me),have no fear because Tony can fix that problem. My condor trigger breaks cleanly at 17 oz. So I bet you can tell I’m pretty happy! Thanks Tony, I love the gun!! No kidding,a .25 AAA condor that is backyard friendly!! Better make sure of the backstop though

Hi Tony, what a coincidence today I wrote you for the shipment and guess the bottles arrived. Sorry for the inconvenience on the other hand great product and thank you very much…

Hi Tony,

Got my Cricket about 12:15 PM. All I can say is it is Awesome! I mounted the scope and like you said it was only off a few clicks. I filled it up to 210 Bar (it was at 200 Bar when I got it), adjusted the scope, and fired a 5 shot group at 20 yards. I was shooting off a bag set on the deck rail, from a standing position. All five shots went into the same hole! Freaken amazing! The rifle is suprisingly quiet. But it sure hits the target with authority. I have it sighted about a mil dot high at 20 yards. I took a dead on shot at a rock out in the field at roughly 60 yards. Nailed it the very first shot. Did I tell you I really love this rifle. LOL!
Thank you for all you’ve done. I’ll do a write up in the days to come. Once again, “Thank you”. I only wish I would have originated my order with you from the start. Take care.

Best regards,

Dave Paul

Richard J.   

I have to say the Taipan Mutant Veteran , thus far has exceeded my expectations and more. Tony set me up with a Aztec Emerald 5.5-25×50 scope, and a Donnyfl moderater. Shoots lights out, excellent accuracy, with the JSB 18.1 gr pellets. Very quiet! My backyard is only 25 yards deep, but when my desert cools down, will head out there and reach out further. The trigger on this gun is amazing, right out of the box, and its perfect for me. It is very adjustable if you want to tweak it to your satisfaction.
Many props to Tony and thank you for the great service.





Took the .25 Condor out to a friends farm on a depredation hunt. The gun with Tony’s upgrades works perfectly on hogs up to 100 lbs at 50 yards…

Hi Tony,

I want to thank you for the gun, it’s Awesome!

I was a little worried at first that it wouldn’t have enough power. My thoughts were stuck on the higher the FPS the more accurate and further shooting the gun would be.

Boy was I wrong…. FPE is just as, or even more important than FPS. Besides, after buying a meter and testing all my guns, I found out that even my “1200 fps” gun was shooting in the 900’s … most of my guns claim to shoot at least 1000 fps when in fact they’re all in the 800’s…. I see now that when tested it’s with the lightest pellet on the market..

I think my gun has a perfect balance of FPS & FPE I’m glad you set me straight… Thanks.

Furthermore after I used up all the pellets you sent me I ordered 9 cans of differnt types of pellets so I could see which ones were the best…two months later and although I still have 9 , 3/4 full, cans of pellets I ordered 4 cans (1,400 pellets) of .25 cal Exact Kings, the very same ones you originally sent me with the gun….. lol

Thanks Again……

Hi My Friend Tony!

This is my testimonial and feedback from Norway. I hope you can write this in your homepage TalonTunes.

Luis from Norway

Final construction of the condor is finished. It was an exciting time to wait for Tony to put the Condor together. When it finally arrived in Norway this summer when I went for vacation, then I picked up the delivery from the post office, I saw the good craftsmanship Tony had put into the Condor. It was a full power tuned Condor .25

The first test I did near our cottage in the mountain, about 1000m about sea level. The response was incredibly precise, just as the shooter. I managed to shoot the target in the same place numerous times. The weapon was excellent. There was a lot of power and noise coming from the Condor, so I had to get a silencer. The Condor was put together with the silencer and a night vision in order to shoot at night time… I have tested from 40-80 meters and the weapon is

Thanks to Tony for great work. If any of you are looking for an excellent airgun, Tony is the man to put it together for you.

Best regards from Norway

I send you some pictures

Tony i see you have a new tank style cover, I will buy one, and maybe you have a new custom trigger with metal finish?

I have had 5 great years with her and it is a testimony to Tony that she is shooting as good today as she was when I took her out of the box. I must say that we have been through some shit: rain, snow, sub-zero cold to 100 plus heat and she has never failed to deliver. I have tried different things over the years but besides a couple of Adam’s add-ons she ALL Talon Tunes on the inside. I was looking over some pictures from days gone by and I think I would be able to fill the back end of my old f-150 with fur and feathers. She has a way about her- straight forward and to the point. If she could talk and you asked her “what’s your mission? why are you here?” her answer would most likely be “I kill shit. I am a dealer of death. Big, small; it makes no difference to me. Hunting, pest control, call it what you will…

My name is Lizzy B. KILLING IS MY BUSINESS AND BUSINESS IS good.” What can I say; it was love at first sight. BIG THANKS TO TONY, ADAM, AND ALL YOU GUYS FOR ALL THE GOOD TIMES. Here’s a little vid we made the other day 172 yards shooting jsb 25.4 fps really fast. NOT THE BEST camera work, but next time I will remember to get a shot of LIZZY in it.

Now the final setup is done and the scope is zeroed. My scope (Bsa STS 6-24×44) works great with the rifle. After two days of shooting and testing, i’m really satisfied to the results: Today i could shoot from fifty yards to a 9 mm cartridge’s bottom.

The Rifle feels great to shoot. I was wondering, did you have a copy of my right hand, because the pistol grip is perfect to my hand. Friend of mine said today that is mean looking machine. So i told him, mean machine has to look like a mean machine.

Waiting was long but worth of it.

Hail to the King of Airforce Guns, Tony

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I wanted to thank you for the great jog on my AAA build. I didn’t get to shoot it till last weekend since my scuba tanks were out getting checked. What a shooter it is. I haven’t gotten to see a paper target yet, but the tree in my yard at 40 yds has one nice group of lead in it. I really didn’t think it would be that quiet either. When I get it up to camp I want to take off the modulator to see the difference. That .25 cal is something else.

I put my $300 Surefire tactical light, my $200 Tango Down Bi-Pod with Quick Release, and also a new trigger shoe, WokButt, Wokguard 15 AR grip attachment from Adam. Your Angle Adapter with quick fill gets your head just in the right place for the scope. It’s a beast!

I am sure I will get back to you in the near future for another build on a Marauder or some other nice PCP.

Again, thanx for the great job. Your name is synonymous with quality, precision and great service.

Hi Tony.

As promised, I want to provide the feedback I received on the Talon Tunes Condor you assembled for me. I was competing in the sub-gun and long range sniper matches. While doing so, I placed the Condor on my table next to my .50 BMG and Mac-10. I was amazed by the attention the Condor received. The competitor next to me had to shoot it!!! He couldn’t believe the performance. Very few would believe it was an air rifle until I showed them the Condor in action. Punching 1/2 MOA’s @ 100yds. was a breeze. Folks were more impressed with that than my shooting the .50 cal. BMG @ 2,000 yds. haha. As a result, many expressed an interest in purchasing a Talon Tunes Condor, similarly equipped rifle. I had a ball showing off my Condor. Hopefully, you get some contacts and business from my shooting buddies. We had competitors from Florida to Alaska so you received nationwide exposure.

Best wishes,
John L

Well, after shooting our new rifle many times & sharing the experience with many friends the overwhelming response is “where in the hell did you get it ?”. Hopefully we can help your sales by continuing to share with our friends. Tony, what can I say that you haven’t heard before, this thing is incredible!!! Emma, age 9, is hitting the bulls eye @ 100 feet after just 2 shots, mission accomplished! Shared it last weekend with an air Marshall friend who was very impressed. Ian, my 13 year old hit an empty 25-6 cartridge off the fence @ 100 feet on his first try. I’m very happy with my decision to allow you the latitude to guide me through the decision making process as we built this incredible machine. GREAT JOB!!!!!

Many, many thanks,

Hi Tony.

Just wanted to let you know my rifle arrived in excellent condition and has been performing flawlessly. The Talon Tunes .25 cal. Condor you put together for me is a work of art. My local associates can’t believe it’s an air rifle. I’ve been shooting an average of 70 – 100 yds. with pin point accuracy. I put an automotive vacuum cap on the drop adapter fill connector to protect it and keep debris out. Seems to work fine. I’m so glad we included that and the top hat in this purchase. The scope is better than I anticipated.

Your craftsmanship and attention to detail created an awesome addition to my collection of rifles. I shoot everything from a full auto .45 ACP Mac-10 to .50 BMG weapons with everything in between.

This new air rifle has added an whole new dynamics to my shooting experience. The beauty of which is that I can shoot from my back deck. Not something I can do with my other weapons. Thanks again for providing me with such a quality rifle. It’s one I proudly display and shoot. I am taking it to Arizona with me at the end of this coming March for a Class-3 and Sniper shooting competition to show my business associates and friends.

It will be interesting to see their reaction to “just an air rifle”. It’s anything but “just an air rifle”. It’s a fantastic piece of shooting equipment with assignment possibilities in my business.
I’ll let you know their reaction.

Thanks again for all of your efforts.

When it comes to tuning the Talons there is only one name TalonTunes…

I bought my TalonP a few months back and I like it a lot. Out of the box it is a great shooter and I posted about it here. Any Pistol with 50 FPE potential in .25 and accuracy would interest me. But as such this little beast has a report like a .30-06 LOL.

Anthony Annuzzi of TalonTunes has helped numerous Talon owners over the years with his smart enhancements and knowing these rifles inside out.

For starters Tony put that beautiful Shroud on that cuts the report by 75%, good enough so you dont alarm the squirrels in the woods.

Then Tony performed a full Tune that really brings out the shine on this wonderful pistol.
Added trigger set screws, did a trigger tune that made for a light crisp release, I love it. He polished, hand lapped and profiled the barrel. This shows on the tightening of the groups. Look at the 40 yard target below. Replaced the breech and valve seals.

The one thing he did I really love is the top hat replacement with his one piece custom top hat/valve stem. This is a must and assures consistency on the long run.

I usually shoot 5 shots at 50 yards, the adjust one mildot and get another 5 at full power. It’s like having a DAQ in your back pocket LOL.

Thank you Tony and TalonTunes for making a great Pistol even better. It loves those JSBs.

Guess what I just picked up? WOW! was this worth the wait! What an amazing rifle. Here is a picture of it with the Laser Designator by Laser Genetics. This thing lights up a target at 250 yards. I have used it on another pellet rife and its amazing. The rabbit does not even know its being lit up. Now with this crazy gun I should be able to do some great pest elimination. This thing is so quiet!
