Talon help, Yes i said Talon

Before anyone tells me that I'm a noob it's not my gun.

My little brother is 8 and can't play at any field, but that didn't stop him for playing so for his birthday i bought him a Brass Eagle Talon.

He Hates when he is lined up for a shot and the 12 Gram Co2 is empty.

I have seen what looks like a 12 Gram with a hose in the bottom that aloes you to use like a 9 ounce Tank.

Anyone know where to buy one?

Edit : I didn't know to post here or the Brass Eagle Forum, so if I posted wrong tell me and i will move it.

8 sure if young for a player. Hope he's unusually responsible and conscientious for his age.

The adapter in the video looks like it was homemade by drilling and tapping a spent CO2 cartidge. This works, but isn't particularly safe, and I certainly would be very wary of letting an 8-year-old play with something potentially that fragile. They make purpose-built 12-gram dummy adapters, but all of the ones I've seen are tapped on the side rather than at the end. That doesn't mean they don't exist though.

A better solution would be to track down one of the old Talon constant air adapters. Brass Eagle put these out themselves, and while they would do exactly what you need they're getting harder to find.

Honestly, for the amount of money it would probably take to set the gun up the way you want you would be better off just buying a cheap used direct-feed Nelson pump. I've got a couple for sale myself.

Finally, learning to know anticipate when a gun is about to run out of CO2 is a good skill for a young player to develop, especially if ever gets into stock play.

If he is 8, I recommend just getting him a cheap semi, or a little better pump.

You're a noob because you're embarrassed to be asking about a Talon

an 8 year old can get a paper route, and 150 isn't much in this sport.

I say, let him learn to count his shots. Then, when he's older, and can get a new marker for himself, he'll be set to own the game.

The trouble there is that these dummy cartridges would put the gas fitting right in the middle of the grip. There might be a way to position the angle of the fitting so that the gun could still be held, but it would not be an optimal solution. The OP linked to a video showing a dummy cartridge with a port at the bottom, not the middle. This would be much more ideal for a Talon.

Oooh. Didn't notice that.
Looks like it should work, but are there any for sale on this continent?

Believe us when we say that isn't really a viable option. You'll be spending too much on that gun in the long run, and I can guarantee it won't be something he'll want to play with when he gets older/bigger, or deeper into paintball. Taking that gun up against anyone using anything other than a Talon is virtually suicide. It is literally known as one of the worst guns to ever see the sport.

the fact that it's barrel is plastic and has no porting for one, and the other fact that they've been known to crack where the co2 screws in and the 12g's fly out
