As to a gun to give them, I'd go for Deathspitters myself. If you're dishing out the guns, screw it, get the good ones.
If that is the only use, sure. I have found using him as a late game objective marker contester to be well worth the points. Often, even when I win first turn, I give away first turn if I am using him. It can be a game breaker to have that ability.

Those are deathspitters. The weird conical shaped ones are Devourers, the big one with the sack underneath is a Barbed Strangler, and the other long one is the venom cannon.

I actually have one more question! Do the scything talons along with dual swords give him more than 4 attacks? or does it just let him reroll 1s to hit?

No additional attacks. They used to do that in the last edition of the codex, now one set allows you to re-roll ones and 2 sets allows you to re-roll all misses.
