Talon TSP

The Talon Tactical Self-Loading Pistol is an attempt to create a versatile, easy-to-produce yet effective tool for units who needed versatility in the field, yet at the same time needed something which was effective in more normal settings as well. The Talon was designed with this in mind, both customizable and consistent, and capable of serving in a wide variety of roles as needed.

  • Purpose: Anti-Personnel, Stealth Missions
  • Damage: T1
  • Effective Range: 260 ft (79.25m)
  • Magazine Size: 11 rounds standard, 17 in extended mags

Model: TSP-01 - Original model of the pistol, basis for any further development of specialized versions.

Discharge Information

Ammunition Types:

  • Standard - Grey tipped - Simple jacketed round, no caveats. Tier 1, Light Anti-Personnel
  • Armor Piercing - Blue tipped - Full metal jacket boat-tail round specifically designed for Match purposes. Tungsten penetrator cap with copper jacketed steel core. Designed to penetrate body armor, not powered armors or other such heavy armor. Tier 1, Light Anti-Personnel
  • Hollow Point - Green tipped - Standard round, with a hollowed out tip, while retaining the external profile. Intended for use only on unarmored targets, capacity for damage drops immensely if used against any form of armor. Tier 1, Light Anti-Personnel
  • Extended magazines may be available for purchase, depending on location.
  • Though not recommended, the Talon can potentially use any round of a similar enough size. This may, however, lead to catastrophic failure.

Firing Mechanism: Semi-automatic chemical firing system. Muzzle Flash: Moderate muzzle flash, easily reduced through suppression systems.

Weapon Mechanisms

Fire mode selectors & Safeties: Located above and behind the trigger, right handed. Two options - S(Safe), and F(Fire).

Weapon sights: The Talon makes use of a three-dot type weapon sighting system, with the rear sights being completely adjustable (within reason) and the front sight raised to prevent silencers interfering with sighting.

Maintenance Information

Field Maintenance Procedure: Standard cleaning measures may be taken to maintain the Talon. It is recommended that the firing mechanism be wiped down, in addition to the barrel, after any period of extended use, or if it has been some time since the Talon was last fired. Users should also care for any other moving parts whenever possible, to maintain efficiency of operation.

Replaceable Parts and components: Any of the parts can be replaced with similar, match-grade parts at any time. Function is improved if all of the components are manufactured together and matched as one rather then put together piecemeal.

Additional Information

The Talon was designed with three rails along both sides and the bottom of the barrel. These slides are all capable of utilizing any standardized attachments, size permitting.
