This is my first gun too. But now I like it much more. The barrel is a cut Tippmann stock barrel that was collecting dust, so I thought wth? I slapped it on there along with the scope for looks and, Wa La- a pimped talon. The scope works too, I can gog my friends every time from 75' or closer. This gun is waaay more fun to use than my tricked tippmann at times. I like to let one of my friends use my tippmann (The rest have sypers) while I use the talon,(Not all the time of course, just for kicks
) it's insanely fun! Hang on to your talons everyone.
