Default AirForce Talon SS PCP Air Rifle 0.25cal

After having this air rifle a few months i have decided to give a review,

I got this rifle for shooting Rats that eat my chicken food, most shots i fire are from 10-15 yards away,

The rifle with scope, mounts and bipod weigh in at around 6lb, Very easy to carry and very ergonomic, Total length is about 33 inches which is very short but great for shooting in enclosed environments or in my case over a gate at the top of a stairway. The rifle is very well balanced and is easy to shoot from the standing, sitting or prone position,

This is a PCP rifle so you have to charge the on board gas cylinder, i bough the airforce pump with mine and the first time charging is a bitch, 3000 PSI took me about an hour to achieve with frequent breaks, Now i charge every 20 or so shots and it basically works out to two pump strokes per shot fired to get back to 3000 psi,

For my use i shoot on a lower setting usually around 3-4 on the rifles onboard power adjuster, This gives me adequate power to propel my pellets down range and have enough stomping power to kill rats (first time a shot a rat was on the higest setting and it blew right threw the rat and embedded itself into my cement floor. )

My choice of ammo for rats is H&N sport hollow points at 26.23 gr, I have my rifle in 0.25 cal for the higher stoping power and lower speeds when compared to .177 or .22,

This rifle is quiet, i would say its no luder then a toaster popping up, the integrated silencer/moderator is awesome,

i have yet to shoot this rifle at longer ranges so can not attest to its range or aquaracyt over distance but for my use it works great and would recomend it to any one with a rat problem,

For rats you could use a springer such as benjamin 750 fps with a 22 pellet generates 16.8 foot pounds of energy plenty for rats possums ect and will cost you about 100.00 $$
