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.
Designer/Manufacturer: Cranth Munitions and Services
(Suggested) Price: 450 KS
Available for Purchase: Anyone, anywhere.
Type: TSP-01 - Short Recoil based action, chemical
Model: TSP-01 - Original model of the pistol, basis for any further development of specialized versions.
Role: The primary role of this handgun is to serve as a secondary weapon in combat situations. Its capacity for customization allows it to serve in any role for which the proper attachments can be found.
Recoil: Mid-range. Though not massively powerful, the Talon does give a decent kickback when fired. It can be safely fired without fear of injuring yourself without bracing and such.
Firing Mechanism: Semi-automatic chemical firing system. Muzzle Flash: Moderate muzzle flash, easily reduced through suppression systems.
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.
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.
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.
After some deliberation, it was decided that the requests they'd received justified making the parts available to do a sanctioned conversion of the gun to 10x25mm KZ rounds instead of its standard .45 NAM.
