Did not get moved this summer .So I pulled my 12 year old 25 caliber Condor out of storage . With a bag of AF parts and a 24 inch .177 barrel . Pulled it a part , cleaned , lubed and gave it all new o rings . In stalled a talon valve in the TT tank drop . Mounted a 12 year old BSA springer rated scope on it . That out lasted all my springer's and focuses good even at 10 yards . Tethered and regulated to 1000 psi. It chrony 10.5 grain pellets at 810 fps . Moved the spinner out to 20 yards and enjoyed the morning shooting .Marvin

that these are the 'tinker toys' of the Airgun world.

Not quite the same thing but I'm tempted by the Texan line as I pay more and more attention to MD hunting laws, just not quite there yet.

If I had not had to move I would have more than likely bought a AF .357 . I have another condor and a talon with 32 inch 25 caliber barrels and a 22 talon I bought used that was advertised as a 25 caliber that has not been shoot all stored away with my big bores . Marvin

I bought a talon tunes tophat and slowed it down to 800 fps gun ...its a tack driver now and plenty of shots . if I need hardcore power I just take the insert out and I'm at 1000fps and can take down a lot of pests . Condor ss is one bada** airgun

I have looked at TT and R&L TH my self when I went with the long barrels . The only problem I have had with the stock one is they would loosen up . But I now put a drop on blue lock tight on the set screws and they seem to stay put . Marvin

a lot of airguns on the market. first off they are warranty for life to original owner and that's the best warranty on any airgun. second is most of the time a owner can fix them at home because airforce will send parts ASAP and they always for me . and third is the barrels can be switched out very easy so you have two guns in one .....I personally like the fact that on a condor ss the barrel is completely protected so that adds up to a durable airgun.
