. here's the rundown on the walther talon mag and falcon hunter tunes : i fill the stock w/ recoil asborbing gel . i tune the triggers and make them lighter and have much less side-to-side movement . i remove all parts and deburr them and clean them . if the piston seal needs replacement, i install a j.macarri red seal into it (sometimes there are metal shavings embedded into the plastic and rubber parts and it lessens the performance) . after giving each part special care and attention, i re-install them with moly and tar and clear lube . i make sure the barrel block is snug but easily movable . they generally shoot 925 fps with 14.5 grain rws superpoints and are far easier to shoot and cock . you'll have much better results with your optics, also . i know you'll look at the overall velocity and shriek back......i did all of that, too ( i am still hell bent for velocity ). but the truth in my personal experience is that most calibers and pellets perform best from springers in the 800-950 range . even the "airgun holy of holies", the jerry whitscombe JW80, is rated at 940 fps in .22 and the bluebook indicates 28 footpounds . the walther talon magnums and walther falcon hunters have enough power that i can afford to loose some velocity - especially if it helps me get better groups out to 50-60 yards . i do the same process to the .25 calibers, but they generally gain about 20 fps . most shoot 795-810 w/ 20 grain FTT's . update - feb 2015 - as of this date, the most powerful airgun i own is a benjamin trail np2 that took some time to tune and break in. it now shoots a consistent and accurate 825 fps with crosman premier hp's. most all of my few airguns shoot around 850 fps - in all 3 conservative airgun calibers : .177, .20 , and .22. the 850 fps range seems to be a sweet spot for accuarcy, shot-cycle, and over-all airgun fun. - raneman.
