The AirForce Condor delivers from 600 fps to a rip-snorting 1450 fps (in .177), and it's recoilless! Accurate (1" at 50 yards) and powerful, this PCP offers extreme flexibility. It has a 24" Lothar Walther barrel (1:16 twist). You can also buy 12" and 18" barrels. Change-outs are easy and don't require any special tools. Built in the USA.
NOTE: The .20 cal. pellets are slightly longer than the .22 cal. pellets of the same weight. Therefore, they drag in the barrel a little more and produce lower velocities. The quoted figures (showing the .20 cal. gun shooting slower than the .22 cal. gun) are actual test figures and are correct.
You'll need an adapter to fill the reservoir with air. The type of adapter depends on how you plan to fill your gun. A scuba tank will require a different adapter than a hand pump or carbon fiber tank. If you use a hand pump, the type of adapter you need depends on the brand of hand pump you use.
Carrying an extra filled tank when shooting in the field is a lot easier than carrying a scuba or carbon fiber tank for refills. Includes new Spin-Loc tank, which includes an air pressure gauge (manometer).
There are lots of ways to configure this gun, including rail-mounted accessories (coin-slot screws for each changeout). You can choose the scope, laser, flashlight, night vision equipment, extra tanks, quick-detach fiber-optic sights and attachments for the type of refilling unit you plan to use. If you replace the barrel with a longer one, the gun will not be silenced.
The .177-caliber Condor has a special tank valve spring. If you plan to attach other caliber barrels to your gun, you may want to buy a tank made for the other calibers (.20, ,22 & .25 calibers use the same tank). If you use the .177-calIber tank with the other smallbore calibers, you'll experience a drop of 50-100 fps in those calibers. However, if you buy the .20, .22 or .25 caliber but plan to also attach a .177-caliber barrel, you must buy a .177-caliber air tank. If you don't, the tank valve spring will not close fast enough, and all your air will be dumped.
Does not come with sights or a refill clamp. If you plan to put a scope on your gun, you won't need the open sights. The refill clamp is needed if you're going to fill your gun's air reservoir with a scuba tank.

Things I liked:Well built, versatile What others should know:First impression was one of dismay. Very low velocity. I could see the pellet inching it's way to the target. It seems the problem was a loose top hat . Make sure the Allen bolts are secure and adjust for velocity. The position of the top hat to valve on tank is critical, too low velocity or tank dumping can happen at either extreme.
Things I liked: I like everything about this gun. It is the best .25 caliber air gun that I have owned. Excellent quality and accurate. The Condor is exceptionally powerful. Things I would have changed:Add an option of factory fiber optic sights. Otherwise great job. What others should know: I live in the country side where people target practice with firearms, but this gun had the attention of the nearest neighbor. It is loud, not for town use. Still a great air rifle.
Things I liked:I bought the .25 cal model. It has a lot of power and is fun to shoot. I underestimated how loud this thing is at full power. I'm shooting an inch and a half ctc @ 50yds free hand standing up. This pcp is very accurate and still has lots of power at that range. Things I would have changed:The only thing i don't like about this is the feel of the hand grip. it has a rubber coating and can be a little slippery. What others should know:If you live in the city I would recommend buying the ss version. So as to allow you to shoot at full power without drawing a lot of attention.
Anyone shooting this on CO2? PA says "Over 1,000 shots per CO2 tank". Is that accurate? Getting hgh pressure air is tough in my area but I do have some (kind of) local CO2 refill stations. Thanks for any input. 700fps on CO2 is fine for my shooting. Pest control typically well under 50 yards, most often 15-30 yards. Thanks for any experience.
George from USA asked:
just wondering where do the pellets load
Stanley from USA:
Push the bolt handle forward to expose the barrel , push the pellet into the barrel , pull the bolt back , the automatic safety will be on , push the safety forward and your ready to fire. Repeat same for next shot etc. This is a single shot no magazines.
david from USA asked:
What problems are most likely with pcp guns and what parts may have to be replaced
Stanley from USA:
I've had my talon and condor for over 10 years have not replaced any parts or had any failures. You pay a lot for them but you get a lot.
