Airhog 111fpe .25 Condor available soon
Why quit while you are ahead? According to the Febuary ’08, vol.62 Shotgun News, Airhog is working on a limited-edition .25 Condor. “It features a 28 inch. Lilja premium hand-lapped barrel that’s custom fitted to a Condor frame. Then, the valve is tweaked to make use of those extra 4 inch. of super-smooth bore.”
It further said, “In preliminary testing, this limited edition .25 has delivered 111fpe with heavy pellets, and accuracy that exceeds the standard conversion. There are more developments yet to come. . . by the time this special rifle hits the street, it will have exceeded 120fpe, which of course is well into .22 LR territory.”
Btw, Gaylord was getting .75″ group at 50 yd. shooting 31 gr. Kodiaks with the standard .25 conversion so this Ltd. edition would likely be getting 0.5″ or less with some “heavy pellets”.
Lilja is well known in the BR world but I didn’t know they make AG barrels. Wondering if it’s a modified PB barrel and who made those pellets. At 120 fpe, wouldn’t a 42 gr. EJ be flirting with the transonic zone ???
Still, this has to be good news for those that think excess is just “enough”. 😉
