Review this product
24 March 2009  

Things I liked: Has ample power[ on co2] ; excellent accuracy ....[this review is for both co2 & air ,as i purchased the tank/pump later.]
Things I would have changed:  an option to quiet this rifle , like the talon. ... but maintaining this 24 " barrel .
What others should know:  I added the tri-rail acc. to raise scope high enough for a comfortable sight picture....because of the large bottle. velocity to velocity / shooting on air compared to co2 : air is about as quiet as any magnum air-rifle up to 700 fps,but co2 could get annoying to neighbors. Gun likes kodiaks; best b.c. of any pellet , a little better even the than 28 g eunjins{ ON AIR}. shooting anything under 18 grains on air will go super- sonic at max power, i.e. Crow magnums~subsonic/jsb predators~ supersonic.This was tested @ 60 degrees; 440 ft altitude. shooting on air at lower power settings; the velocity will climb out on you; e.g. you start at 700 fps for 9-10 shots & then it step- climbs to 900 in a 6, 7 shot string..... this is normal for the condor...... this gun on air was really meant for full power shooting on air. on co2 kodiaks shoot a little over 600 fps at this temp., predators 670, crow mags. 645 fps. on air at full power ; this rifle has near identical ballistics to a 22 short... 28.4 grain pellet comes out at 1000.

Things I liked: Looks awesome!! Im a metal and wood guy and didnt really care for the looks until I actually held it and it really impressed me.! Feels like a special forces sniper rifle or something its awesome! Power,for a CO2 this thing kicks butt! Well made no cheesy parts. Made In USA!!!
Things I would have changed: So far nothing I shot about 400rounds through it and evrything is good so far and I wouldnt change anything. except maybe the price, could be lower but its worth every penny.
What others should know: ok when I first got it and mounted bushnell 4-12-40, i started shooting and after sighting in, I could not get this to shoot better than 3" at 30 yards, there was alway one or two flyers that just killed the group! I was usein RWS 14.2 gr super H point. I kept shooting and after 100 shots i knew something had to be wrong. So I cleaned the barrel, and shot another 100 no difference still all over the place. I didnt have any other pellets to try so I decided to try another scope, I put on a simmons pro 50 6-18x50 and sighted in and shot about 25 shots, Again no differenc, I was starting to get annoyed and think that the condor was not as accurate as they say! So I decided to take the barrel off clean it again and reinstall and bingo!! this thig started sticking pellets right next to each other and grouping very tight at 30 yd! maybe my barrel was loose or something I dont know but taking it off and cleaning it for the second time and reinstalling did the trick I am now very happy with my condor!!

Things I liked: I got my CO2 tank and adaptor yesterday for my condor. I ordered the 20 oz tank and adaptor for $119.00 my only experience with CO2 is with a little Crossman pistol that used CO2 and shot BB's. Needless to say I was not impressed. However, my neighbors were giving a few frowns while blasting off the condor in the back yard. So after watching the video on Pyramyd air I bought the CO2 and adaptor, thinking that it would be quieter than on air, and with Paul's chrony number be perfect for my backyard pest. Well, it is quieter but it has it's moments and Paul was averging 18 foot pound with Beeman Kodiaks 21.10 grain. In his video he claimed you wouyld get 600's to low 600's velocity so I set up my chrony and I turned my power setting and moved my dial over to 12. WOW!!!! I did not know CO2 was capable of kicking butt. I fired 30 times over my chrony then got my other rifle to double check my chrony. Nothing wrong with chrony, here is what I got using CO2 on a Condor .22 cal with Beeman Kodiak 21.10 grain 691, 698, 693, 678, 686, 697, 699, 692, 687, 691. average velocity was 691.2 and putting out 22.3 ft lbs. on CO2! I could not believe it. I called a friend of mine and told him about this and he said oh yeah, they are quite capable. He kinda laughed at me because he thought that I already knew that CO2 wasn't that bad. So I loaded the Condor and drove out to his place where we were punching paper at 50 yards easy. I still couldn't believe that CO2 could do that. I am very happy with the gun, we couldn't find any rabbits or praire dogs around his place, but we were able to take out crows at his place at 30 to 50 yards easy. I will definatly be refilling my CO2 bottle if it ever runs out. I will be using this set up around the house, and I will put my air back on if needed out at the farm. JW
Things I would have changed: nothing,
What others should know: Bottle is big will need scope. A little loud but quirter than on air.

Things I liked: I like the trigger, after my 8lb. one ,on my springer,I like the convenence of the co2,the power and the accuracy, the ease in cocking and adapting the power source.
Things I would have changed: I really need to change the tank it is not working for me, it is to big around to see thru the scope properly with 1in. high mounts. I wish not to jack the scope up anymore,so I'll be going to the smaller tank soon. Make a detachable shoulder plate for the end of the bottle.
What others should know: The gun works good where I am ,5000 ft. and sunny Az. If you get this gun you are going to have to get a scope base plus high mounts, to see around this bigger container, plus this container is quite heavy and gun does not balence well. the gun stands up on the bottle very well though.
