Finally got to shoot my new toy, a .25 Condor made by Tony.
First, I decided to go with a OP valve from Tim; I wanted to have dead solid valve with no need to adjust anything, and I think Tony and I got it where it needs to be. I wonder if anyone else went the same route. The bipod Tony put on that thing is look like it’s been there from day one – dead solid, sturdy, and is a true improvement to the rig. The shroud is impressively effective. I think I have done every possible mod Tony have on his site. I decided to put a Bushy 4200 6-24×40 MD on it. Didn’t do any accuracy tests, but perhaps on a calm day I’ll sight it in at 45 yards or so.
I had two bottles for Tony to modify: custom OP valves had to be custom fitted. The first bottle is for 31 gr. Kodiak and the second one for 42 gr. EJ, which I put to test. So, the bottle for EJ spits 42 gr. EJ @ 975 fps, and Kodiak @ 1030 fps. I was able to get 22 full power shots with the pressure started @ 2900 psi.
Overall I am impressed with Tony’s work. Definitely worth every penny.
More will follow…

Random words popped in my mind when seeing this gun.

Congrats on a bad ass gun!March 18, 2008 at 8:05 pm #35946
Tell us about the Bi-Pod.
What brand is it, and does it extend? Is it tall enough?
What is this OP valve?March 18, 2008 at 10:37 pm #35959photo22Participant
Vlady she’s looks nice 😀March 18, 2008 at 11:03 pm #35967
Thank you all,
the bipod is Harris short profile 6-9″, and yes it is extendable up to 9″. As the matter of fact, I still have another one available, brand new. It is, in fact, a silent set up, especially with subsonic EunJins. OP valve is a one piece valve stem that Tim from CustomBrakz makes: it was just my preference to have a non-adjustable top-hat, rather than a standard one with grab screws in it.
One more thing I’d like to get is a receiver extention, so if I do decide to shoot it without the shroud, it will look nice.March 18, 2008 at 11:15 pm #35969walkonkingParticipant
That gun looks great. The only problem I see is it is not long enough 😛March 19, 2008 at 12:27 am #35973saugus18Participant
Vlady, I can make a nice frame extension for you if you want, black anodized alumi tubing with cap any length, as long as my buddy is willing to machine more caps… here it is my gun.March 19, 2008 at 1:04 am #35977
Adam, yes it’s a 49.5″ long gun…kinda like it though – The Ultimate Ambush Hunter 🙂
Nice work, Saugus. Someday I will need a vented receiver extention (not a shroud type) where the barrel is exposed.March 19, 2008 at 10:16 am #36008
Vlady, Where in Houston are you? If possible I would to check your new Condor out in person. Where do you shoot?
I want a bipod that will allow swivel. What do you think?

Bruce I actually live in Richmond which is about 15 miles south-west of Houston. I usually go to the American Shooting Centers off Westheimer Parkway, the only problem is that it’s an open land so you really have to pick a calm day to shoot an air rifle, preferrably in the mornings. Wouldn’t be able to shoot for another month or so 🙁 Oh well, I got some ducks goofing around in the pond outside of my house, so never mind the shooting range for now.
Talk to Tony about swivel thing. My bipod is so dead on on it I don’t even know how did Tony do it…March 20, 2008 at 10:22 am #36088
Tony is putting a 25 Condor together for me also.
I have never seen an Air Force gun in person yet. I am waiting patiently.
What pump do you use? I need to get one, and a scope. You know, all the goodies!March 20, 2008 at 9:42 pm #36127
I use FX pump. Bought it 2 years ago. So far so good.
Scope is important so don’t be too stingy 🙂March 21, 2008 at 12:13 am #36142martin777Participantquote JPEG:
