When I first purchased my Condor, I soon realized that after a full 3000 psi fill and power wheel cranked up, I was a huge number of shots away from getting that “full power” I think it started out shooting med weight pellets under 600 fps slowly climbing up from there.
I posted the problem on the then Talon Owners Group forum and was advised to fill to a lower pressure.
The Condor then mostly became a dust collector in the gun safe.
I thought I had recently read from a post or two where AF had come out with an improved valve that allows full power when starting at 3000 psi.
I emailed AF and asked if there was a new and improved valve as mentioned and if so, price along with if it would be best to send the tank in to have them install.
Their replies have address that my tank / valve must be defective and to just send it in for warranty work.
Was I incorrect in my understanding that there is a new and improved valve on currently sold Condors ???January 8, 2008 at 9:28 am #31184riffraffParticipant
No, you heard right.
The latest version of the Condor valve is much nicer. Still not perfect, but better.
My old valve is exactly as you described yours to be. The new valve will shoot at 3000PSI, but it still takes a very few shots to get to full power (for me anyway).
I usually start at 2800, then I can push kodiaks in excess of 1000fps if I want to.
I set the gun to shoot around 950, and I can get an easy 40 shots at that level.
If you want the gun to shoot better, I would go ahead and get the warranty service. Sounds like AF is gonna set you up.January 8, 2008 at 3:13 pm #31191walkonkingParticipant
They have redesigned the valve take a look here and you can see the differance.January 8, 2008 at 5:29 pm #31198AnonymousInactive
I had the same problem. Send the bottle to AF like they asked and they will put a new valve in for you. You won’t regret it. The new valve is the only way to go. Mine works fine from 3000lb. fill.

Thanks for the info and for the link. Air Force was very nice in offering to deal with it as a warranty issue. My fingers will be crossed.January 9, 2008 at 12:47 pm #31268AnonymousInactive
Talk straight to Rachael. She knows the deal and again……she exemplifies customer service. Customer service is what sells a product. I wish I had someone like her working in my Company.

What company is that? You sound like you’d be one hell of a boss to work with. 🙂
