High Power, Bolt Cocking, Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP)

Condor, Light Weight and Easy to Handle
Super Accurate

While other air gun manufacturers struggle to break 1200 feet per second in .177, the new AirForce Condor easily achieves 1250 fps in .22, making it one of the most powerful production pellet gun known in this caliber. An integral extended scope rail allows easy mounting of the largest air gun scopes or other specialized optical sighting devices. Additional dovetail rails allow mounting lasers, bipods, and other accessories to provide the shooter with an adaptive airgun shooting system. Designed for air gun hunting in the growing number of states that allow hunting, this system can also be used by various military and law enforcement agencies for pest control or special tactical applications.

The AirForce Condor is a quality PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatic) air rifle with a definite "one-of-a-kind" look. The Condor features a Lothar Walther premium match barrel and features three accessory rails for mounting scopes, lights, lasers, night vision equipment and other sighting devices. We do recommend using a high mount with this rifle regardless of which scope you choose to use.

Micro-adjustable power levels permit velocity adjustments over a wide range. The fire control system features an automatic safety, an easily accessible safety release, a two-stage trigger, an oversized cocking knob and a large pellet loading port. All rail mounted accessories feature coin-slotted screws for easy changes to suit various shooting applications.

  • Velocity: 600-1300 feet per second (Depending on caliber, pellet weight, and power setting)
  • Power Adjustment: User-adjustable

The shrouded and baffled Condors have arrived and we knew airgunners would be interested to see the Our Take on them so we did the ..22 and 25 Condor testing right away. The .177 tests will follow as soon as we can find the time to do it.
There are a few things you should know before looking at the numbers.
1. The CondorSS is an adjustable powered rifle with power settings from 1-12. The manual suggested power levels are #3-4 for target shooting, #6 for most general plinking and #10 for high power shooting. While there is a #11 and #12, the manual says that using anything over #10 will simply waste air. So it looks like #10 is the way to go for high power and that is the power level used for the Our Take.
I did check to see the number of shots per fill using JSB Exact Kings at 25.39 grains. You'll see that reflected below the test. Even though the Beeman Kodiak/H&N Baracuda yields a bit more power the JSB pellets seem to be super popular too.
2. The manual says as one would expect the power level used will determine the number of shots your get per fill. Using a #10 setting would yield the least number of shots and lower settings would increase the number of shots by a respectable margin. The manual claims 65 shots or so at medium power levels and up to 200 at very low power levels.
3. After all the testing at power level #10 was finished, I turned the power down to #6 to see what the power level would be. I did not test for the # of shots at that power level. I was just looking to see the fpe of the rifle at that power level. I then turned the power down to #3 and checked the fpe of the rifle at that power level also. Again, I did not test to see the maximum number of shots at #3 power setting.
4. The new CondorSS uses an 18" shrouded and baffled barrel rather than the usual 24" barrel featured on non-shrouded versions of the Condor. However, the manual states that the 24" barrel is an option but doesn't say (or I didn't notice where) whether the 24" barrel would be shrouded or unshrouded. We'll try to find out information about that.

This is certain...the gun is a powerful shooter and is a lot quieter than the non-shrouded version. But it's still a bit louder at full power, than a typical 30 fpe shrouded and baffled PCP. At twice the power, one would expect it to be a bit louder. The sound does drop quite a lot when the power is turned down and would likely be very similar to a any other pcp air rifle when both are turned to the same power level.
If a shooter can get by at the medium power setting for most shooting situations, I think he'd find the gun to be very quiet for a howitzer. We always tell customers that in reality, guys don't want quiet...they really want silent but of course that isn't realistic. But I must say that Air Force did a good job of quieting a super powerful rifle and the adjustable power makes it even more versatile. You'll like this gun a lot.
