    Anyone know about this Auto Talon

    They called it the auto talon I believe.

    Never seen it before. Seems legit. Definitely a high quality precision engineered paint capsule deliverance machine. Fully automated of course.

      I believe the story is that this was constructed specifically to piss off autococker snobs at the builder's field. And it actually functioned rather well

      And the past, it will decay, so sing goodbye to yesterday...

            I made one for a teammate back in the day. He had a box of left over cocker parts and a talon he hated. because the pump stroke was so stiff, the ram kept sliding and we tightened the clamps so much they started crushing the barrel. lol

              Did you ever come up with a solution?

                There were several variations of these that popped up on BEOG. A few used slotted bodies and attached the ram to the side of the bolt, similar to bolt action mods.

                I have a grey Talon that has a 16" ThunderPig barrel permanently attached in place of the plastic barrel, and a bunch of 'cocker parts... things that make you say Hmm. I even have a C/A adapter for it, if I so desire. I do prefer pump, though.
                If you need to talk, I will listen. Leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I get it.

                  Nope. However, I realized that the Talon is a Nelson pump, so potentially future rainmakers may come out of it.

                    Here is the Talon with the metal barrel that I put together back in, what, 2000-ish. I chopped the plastic barrel off even with the end of the body, then hogged out the remaining stub with a Dremel grinding bit stuck in a Dewalt drill. I didn't actually have a Dremel at the time.

                    Anyways, I then heated up the plastic and force threaded a 16" CMI ThunderPig straight rifled Spyder barrel into the heated up/hogged out stub. I let it cool, then unscrewed the barrel, applied a liberal amount of 2-ton epoxy, and threaded the barrel back in for the final time.

                    I bring this up because I can guarantee that the barrel is in there good enough to hold a ram for cocking the marker. And if I can manage such a modification as a child sitting on my bedroom floor with hand tools, then I think it can be easily replicated to provide a stable platform for any future Auto-Talon attempts.

                    Here's a surprisingly very recent picture of it... I actually tracked it down just a few months ago (3 states away and 20 years later, lol). Might have to give it an update, this time with... PNEUMATICS!
