Things I liked:Compared to many other high end PCP rifles, this one is extremely light and easy to carry in the field. It is a simple and very rugged design, so you don't worry to much about taking it into difficult terrain. I have a few of the "top shelf" european PCP rifles for comparison, and this rifle compares quite impressively for the money. The .25 is EXTREMELY powerful,(I've observed it punching through a pine 2x4 on occasion.) Rating it against my european guns I would say it has "acceptable" accuracy. This should be considered high praise, since the best regulated PCP rifles basically shoot through the same hole at 25 yards. The .25 condor SS is very close to that, generally dime size at 25yd, with the very occasional flyer, which is remarkable for such an inexpensive rifle. Consider that the PCP rifles I am using for comparison would cost nearly 3 times as much, so you're getting a lot of value here! All the power of the top shelf rifles,(and then some) and most of the accuracy
Things I would have changed:Quality control! I have had numerous issues with Air Force rifles over the years, all of which seem related to valve calibration. My first PCP was a first gen, unsuppressed condor in 22. I never got good power and accuracy was quite poor, I put it aside & forgot it for a while, but eventually sent it to air force to see what they could do . They fixed it so that it worked perfectly. (Though groupings still not as good as the .25 SS). When ordering the Condor SS , I originally wanted it in .177. There were tons of valve problems, it was shooting way too hot & dumping air. Power wheel did nothing. I spoke with air force, and decided I would never be happy with a .177. PA happily exchanged it for me. The .25 I got also shoots hot, and the power wheel doesn't do much , but it's operating acceptably for my purposes. Air force did offer to fix it for me, but I'll probably leave it alone. Air usage could be more efficient. I'd expect to get much more than 20 shots from a tank that size.
What others should know:From what I was told by Airforce, it seems the power wheel does not affect large power changes with the current gen. of condor rifles, because they are designed for all out power. My older one will vary over a large range of velocities, which is what prompted me to order the .177. I thought I could dial the power way down to subsonic for accuracy , and still have extreme supersonic velocities available to play with . This does not seem to be the case. I would strongly recommend getting this gun in .25. It will stay subsonic , promoting accuracy, and it will hit incredibly hard, AND be astonishingly quiet! If you want a condor, you want power & with air guns it's better to go to a higher caliber than to go supersonic to get it. Supersonic pellets are very loud and accuracy goes out the window. In .25 the Condor SS just makes a sort of a slight "pshh" sound. It's quite remarkable. My advice,be patient with these. Between PA and Air Force, you'll be taken care of, & It'll be worth it!
Things I liked:The condor SS is a very powerful pcp and very accurate . Some people say it is awkward looking through the scope but I find it to be no problem if you add the scope rail to the gun .
Things I would have changed:Nothing yet everything seems to be ok
What others should know:I read that the condor SS was supposed to be real quiet but to me it sounds like an air nailer .
