Things I liked:Accuracy, Power and "Black Rifle Look" Things I would have changed:The trigger and safety might need a little cleaning up.
Trigger a little stiff, but ok not match grade but a good hunting "letoff"
Safety very stiff, a two hand operation, can't push-off with trigger finger but understandable...liability issue I suspect What others should know:Condor Bounty Hunter .22 Review
This is a tack driver, (were talking cloverleaf groups at 40/50 yards)and a very powerful weapon. I've had a talon-SS for a number of years and love it, it's my go to air rifle and I have several high end air rifles. I finally got around to getting this "Bounty Hunter" in .22. I wanted a hunting rifle with more FPE than my TalonSS, This Condor sure delivers and Pyramyd Air is a great company to deal with. Back to the rifle: I carried a "black rifle" in Vietnam for 2 years and never thought about how HOT it was, just not an issue. I'm in Florida and I've had my TalonSS hunting days on end heat never an issue, not to worry. As for the "Flash suppressor" it's a WoW factor, gives the gun a nice looking appearance, if you don't like the appearance you can get the regular Condor? If you have a suppressor license you can put your .223 on it as it's the same threading. This gun is a bit loud, but at this power level it's to be expected. Tony, at talon-tunes (real quality work and great guy to talk to) can make you a barrel extension to quiet it down if you like. I had him make an extension and .25 cal "18 inch" for my TalonSS, you'll see my comments and accuracy tests at 50 and 60 yards on his Web-site. These guns are real tack drivers and very powerful, if your looking for accuracy and realize this is a special niche weapon you can't go wrong with a Condor.
Things I liked:Accuracy, Power and Looks
The Bounty Hunter added features of the stock and threaded barrel is quite nice.
The added stock is a must have and the "flash suppressor" is a great touch for looks.
The Condor is a tack driver at 50/60 yards I can shoot 1-1.5 inch groups.
Downrange FPE is great with JSB "Jumbo Heavy" @ 18.1gr. and very accurate.
Things I would have changed:The trigger is ok for a hunting rifle, but perhaps a little work in that area would be nice. The grip and forearm is a basic black plastic however it keeps with the "Black Rifle" looks. One of the design features of this rifle, that I enjoy They are actually ok and do the job.

I purchased a Talon SS a few years ago and wanted to pick up a Condor recently to up my FPE for hunting small game in Florida.
Pyramyd Air has been my source for years on airguns and accessories.
I have purchased an 18" .25 cal barreland 8" barrel extension for it, then tuned it down to about 900 FPS and it's quite and very accurate. Tony at Talontunes set up the barrel and extension for me and you can see my results on his web pages as to the accuracy. My targets are posted in the customer comments section. At 50/60 yards this gun is fantastic, same accuracy as my TalonSS with more downrange energy.
It is quite loud with the "stock" barrel but that is to be expected with this kind of power level.
For a few bucks more than the basic Condor this is a good deal due to the stock and flash suppressor.
