The AirForce Texan set the high bar for pre-charged pneumatic air rifles when introduced at the 2015 SHOT Show. The new air rifle is the much quieter version of the AirForce Texan, which remains the world’s most powerful production air rifle. The TexanSS is slightly smaller – and a lot quieter - than its full throated namesake.

Tim Smith of AirgunHobbyist.com visits AirForce Airguns

Made in the USA is something that used to be proudly printed or stamped on airguns decades ago. These days, if the product does mention the USA, it’s preceded by words such as “assembled in”. However, this is not the case with AirForce Airguns, they are truly made in the USA. I can attest to this by having had the privilege of touring the AirForce Airguns facility in Fort Worth Texas.

John McCaslin, President and Yvette Hicks, Operations Manager of AirForce Airguns invited us to visit this summer while we were in Fort Worth area. John designed the Talon airgun around the quality Lothar Walther barrel (which is the only part of the airgun that is imported). The airguns were designed to be modular and for future expansion. When John designed the first Talon, it was not designed for planned obsolesce in any way. An example, mounting rails were incorporated for future use of new accessories.

AirForce Introduces Sound-Loc™ Noise Reduction System for AirForce ‘SS’ Models. AirForce Airguns has announced the introduction of one of the most effective and technologically advanced noise reduction systems for airguns. The just unveiled Sound-Loc™ Noise Reduction System is designed specifically for AirForce’s TalonSS and CondorSS air rifles.

AirForce has now improved sound reduction technology with the new Sound-Loc system. Sound-Loc incorporates asymmetrical deflection of air exiting the muzzle as the gun is fired. It also includes captured air expansion and reflexive air flow which combine to decelerate air velocity and minimize the report of the rifle. These changes move AirForce from the first to the most advanced integral sound suppression system ever designed for an airgun.

.25 Caliber Barrels

AirForce Airguns, the first U.S. manufacturer of Pre-Charged Pneumatic air rifles has added .25 caliber to their product line. This addition allows the end user to purchase an accessory barrel for an existing rifle and add the enhanced ballistic capabilities this caliber offers to their AirForce shooting system. The .25 caliber is preferred by airgun hunters worldwide and has been much sought after in the US by serious airgunnners. The .25 caliber provides the perfect balance to projectile weight and muzzle velocity, assuring maximum terminal velocity on small game or pests. Pellets in .25 caliber are readily available nationwide. Swapping the barrels is easy and requires minimal tools. The barrels are available in 12, 18, and 24 inches. The Talon and Condor series rifles are also now available in this caliber.

Self-Centering Tri-rail

New self centering Tri-rail base designed by BKL Technologies offers dovetail mounting surfaces on three sides and raises the sight line so standard scope rings may be used.

TalonP Air Pistol

The TalonP sets a new standard in air pistol power levels. Designed to deliver over 50ft. lbs. of energy with a .25 caliber hunting pellet, this pistol is for the serious hunter wanting a compact, yet powerful hunting tool.

MSRP $421.00

What are folks saying about the TalonP air pistol?
  • "Great gun for my backpack." - Airforce Fan
  • "Cowabunga! The worlds finest small bore hunting air pistol has been born!" - Tom Gaylord

7/1/2010: AirForce Airguns Introduces the "New Black" in Airguns

AirForce Airguns is bringing out their popular Condor and Talon SS rifles, the original black airguns, in red and blue. These are the same precision guns that brought pre-charged airgunning to the U.S. They still feature Lothar Walther precision barrels in .177, .20, and .22 calibers. The company’s signature multiple mounting rails and built in velocity control system are also retained.

“We had a lot of demand for rifles in new colors,” noted AirForce Operations Manager Yvette Hicks, “We first displayed them in Vegas at S.H.O.T. Show and they were very well received. We have been taking a constant flow of orders for them since.”

AirForce was first with a “Black” pre-charged pneumatic airgun with the original Talon model. It was quickly followed by the Talon SS and Condor models to offer a wider variety of rifles to fill every shooter’s need and situation. From the interchangeable barrels to the multiple propellant power system, these are the most advanced – and the best looking – serious airguns available anywhere.

These guns are more than just visually appealing. They are the same ultra accurate rifles that made AirForce the leader in high power airguns. These rifles are made in the USA in AirForce’s state of the art Fort Worth manufacturing facility.

2/1/2010: AirForce Introduces Edge Flexi-Weights for Edge Air Rifle

AirForce Edge Flex-weights are designed for maximum flexibility. Weights can be mounted anywhere on the frame or muzzle extension allowing dramatic adjustability of overall weight and balance point while still falling within Sporter Class weight limits.

The reason for the weights are due to the actual weight on the Edge Sporter Air rifle, the rifle only weighs 6.1lbs, so the shooter can add the weight system to achieve a heavier rifle without going over the restricted weight limit of 7.5lbs for Sporter Class competitions. Each Weight weighs 50 grams. Available in 1 or 5 packs.
