Hello
After a few weeks of waiting my Talon came in
But this is not a compete Talon, This is the frame :shock: :)
I thought i would make it interesting and do a build of my own, Since we already had a few parts laying around
I already had the following
-24" Condor Barrel in .25 cal
-Stock Hammer
-A extra tank
And a few other odds and ends :)

I saved quite a bit of money which is always good :drinkers:

This project will be a month or two depending when i get the bbl cut down and get the breech

I thought i had everything but of chorus i forgot one or two items :lol:
I forgot to order the breech and the forearm :oops: :oops: :x

But i have a breech coming from another member so that is all good
And the forearm will be ordered a bit later on mabey

This gun will be a nice little shorty that will have lots of power
The bbl will be cut down to 18" so it will still have plenty of power :drinkers:

Here are some pics

Thanks for looking

Hello
For just the bare frame with out the trigger group or anything was $80
With most of the internals exept for the hammer and bbl and breech was around $150
But this was the old style frame so that is why it was so cheap

For the new frames with almost everything i think it is around $250ish

And you picked .30 i think :)
I am in the process of doing a camo job on the Talon 8)
I might do a different method from my Camo 1377
But it is quite cold out and the tress do not want to give any brush so i might have to do the foam method :)
It still looks good in my opinion so i might just do that :drinkers:

I will post some pics of the process

Hello Rick
Me and my dad put in a order with AirForce and ordered the parts with the frame :)
But you could probably call them up and order them seperate
