    I just received a heavy hammer spring from Talontunes yesterday and did some preliminary work over the Chrony before it got dark. Wow! 1st, I can pressurize to 3000 PSI and effectively use the additional 300 PSI. With th lighter spring, I could only pressurize to 2600 if I wanted a shot string that would hit same POI. 2nd, the spring gives me an additional 100 or so FPS on some loads which really drives up the FPE. That said, my Sumo will not cut it and I will have to buy a Ronin to quiet it up if I keep it configured this way. Additionally, the power wheel doesn't do much for you with the heavy spring.

    Today, even though it is raining, I am going to try shooting with an oring under the top hat on the valve and see if it does anything. I can't use the Chrony but I'll see if there is a noticeable report change.

    Got to play with the TalonP some more today but no Chrony as it rained all day. After the Ark settles back on land I will post some speeds.

    The #5 O ring under the fixed top hat on the valve made a big difference and it wasn't dumping excess air. Additionally, the power wheel settings show a large difference between 0 and 10 which is as high as I went today.

    The power of this little 12 inch barreled .25 is downright awesome. Here are some pics showing just how powerfull it is now. Everything was shot at 25 yards with the power wheel at 10.

    The end piece of pressure treated pine was hit with a 25gn Benjamin Diablo. This is a very hard pellet and the penetration shows it. Then I shot a 34 grain JSB King Heavy into my sand target and heard what sounded like wood being struck. It sure was. The JSB pellet went through about 5 inches of play sand and then 1/4 inch into the pressure treated 2 x12 backer. WoW!:shocked3:

    I can't wait for the rain to stop.

    I've played with a few different air rifles now. For small game, the 25 is about perfect. I shoot squirrel with mine and tried the .22 at one point. It did the job but had to be perfect. The 25 allows a little more allowance. Sounds like you're going to have a real shooter. AF makes a good gun. I think your going to have a lot of fun with it.

    I like it! Tomorrow I will hopefully be able to put the Chrony out and see what kind of shot strings I get with the new hammer spring. I also want to get some of Hunter's supply bullets to see how they work. I have read some good things about them but the reviews were with Talons and Condors not the TalonP.

    Now that you might need more air, this seems like the next best upgrade for just $38. 380cc instead of 213cc of air would mean 18 shots instead of 10, or 36 instead of 20.

    Same diameter just 4" longer...

    I have been looking into these but am confused by the threads on the tank and valve. If I remove the valve from my Talon P tank, will it screw into this bottle?

    TIA,
