My second year with my Condor, will shoot groups under 1/2″ at 35 yds. 2 1/2″ at 100 yds. For the critics out there I say to you,”the gun is only as good as the shooter and the shooter as good as the scope”. The mods avalible for this gun will only improve the gun. I put a stroud on mine and it is extremly quite now. Also you can modify the safty and trigger to enhance accuracy. I was able to tear down the gun and work on it. Easy to do. The trouble with the air tank valves has been addressed and the only people with the problem have the old tanks and the manufacture will repair at not cost for the upgrade. I was very pleased with there service.

I have owned this rifle for almost a year,without having any problems.I took this to a outdoor range and was more accurate than the firearms at 50 yards,and I am not kidding. It all depends on who you buy from. People who have problems filling this rifle should fill to a pressure of 2700 psi. Also on full power use kodiaks to slow down for more accuracy The reason for 2700 is sometimes the valve will lock up. If someone wants to know where to purchase this rifle, the company I bought from fully test the rifle before shipping!

Experienced valve lock with 177 24″ barrel at 3000psi

reducing pressure means less total shots per fill so that’s a poor solution.

Finally replaced the Condor tank with a standard one which works well (no valve lock) but disappointed that full Condor power not acheivable this way.
also have the CO2 adapter which is great but tank diameter causes need for extra hi scope mounts.

The one piece adjustable mount is expensive and complicated to adjust.

I will have to say I am a first time PCP owner and being U.S. born I like to support our US economy. Now I�m thinking I have made a big mistake!

I bought the Condor 22 cal and with advice I bought a spare tank and Axsor/FX3000/Logun hand pump. Sounds like a good set up right?

After many many many ���MANY pumps and a 15 min break between 5 min�s of pumping I get the tanks to 3000 psi whoooooooo right then I my only thought was scuba tank is needed.
So off to shooting 2 shots with Crosman Premiers the pin falls out of the tank???? I think what the he__!!!! this is a 200.00 tank. So I put the other tank on the gun it only shoots 704, 714, 718, 706, 689, 680, so I was thinking maybe I need to pump it some more pumped it back up to just under 200 bar now it only shoots in the 650 640 range. Man I�m thinking what a waist of money 560.00 for the gun 189.00 for the tank 200.00 for the pump just about 1000.00 for something that has gone all wrong. So I put all that junk back in the box took out my old Sheridan Blue Streak and went shooting in the big safari in the back lot no powder burners allowed in town. I can say what a big disappointment this condor has been if I had it all to do over again I would go with the well established Webley & Scott. It looks like I�m stuck with damage control trying to get things right

How do I rate an experience like this?
Cost:
I think it is way too high compared to the English made PCPs for a tad bit more I could have gotten a nicely made gun with a wood stock.
Quality:
It�s made of aluminum and plastic with I should add a Lothar Walther barrel not American made I’m Very disappointed
Airguning was never meant to cost as much and to be so difficult

As with most FACTORY MADE PCP airguns the toy factor stops here.

I won�t bore you with the fps fpe you can find that every where on the web.

The Airforce Condor is top notch the accuracy is unrivaled buy any PCP there may be equals but none better.

When it�s time to go shooting (hunting) take 2 tanks more then enough air for a good hunt.

The gun at first seemed to be way over priced as did the spare tank but after a year of proud owner ship I can now say money well spent nothing and I say again nothing about this gun has disappointed me.

It�s a great gun enough said

A pumper can maintain equal pressure from shot to shot far more reliably than co2, but with more time between shots. This rifle is extreemely accurate. BB’s are fun to use as you have a large reserve, and 17 in the “magazine” to use without “reloading”. The sights are adjustable and work very well.It is a tack driver with pellets, but they must be loaded singly.

To be honest, first impressions weren’t great. The finish was poor, butt ugly wood grain, roughly finished metal bits. Then there’s the 4 tonne trigger! Honestly thought the safety was stuck! But that’s just how it is! Lots of travel, which usually makes for poor accuracy.

Usually. All was forgiven when I walked up to the target sheet to see 4 shots touching each other in the middle of the 1″ diameter bulls eye at 10m! Did I mention open sights?

The side-lever cocking action is heavy, but not overly so. Loading the pellet can be slightly finicky, and the trigger feels a little too far from the indentation in the stock that’s meant to be the grip, so that you can just reach it with the finger tip. Then there’s the pull!

This rifle is like a pit fighter, rough, looks like crap from the box, but is dirt cheap (approx US$34 on special) and does a splendid job where it counts!

KL-B3 (fast deer) first I would like to say this guns is junk I can�t believe how bad this gun is if you buy them by the case you get them for under 30.00 about 300.00 if you buy them wholesale there about 25.00 retail 35 to 45 the gun I received was shooting 6inches low so I called the dealer he said I needed to bend the barrel OK great, no thanks Ill just send it back 3 weeks later I get another one this one only cocked part of the time sent it back now I�m into shipping for about 30 bucks 30 for shipping 35 for the gun, total 65.00 I called the dealer to tell them to for get it just refund the money including shipping, I was told that would never happen so he sent another one left it in the box sold it at the flea market for 50.00 lost 15.00 Chinese guns are junk I have found that the fast deer is nothing but road kill, I called the airgunsmith www.airgunsmith.com they said to stay away from the KL-B3 (fast deer) and that there getting away from all the Chinese guns completely they all need some sort of repair straight from the factory, I bought the Benjamin Legacy 1000, from airgunsmith.com and I�ve been happy ever since a little more money but no hassle the KL-B3 (fast deer) is junk

This gun shoots hard & straight, it looks decent but it creeks and groans when cocking this is 1 of 8 airguns that own and this is the only one I�m not sure of.

It was the 25.00 price tag as well as the power of a springer that persuaded the purchase. And after disassembling cleaning in hot water and soap with some filing, buffing and the over application silicon spray the gun seems to be quieting down as far as the fps we will see after 2 or 3000 shots, the bottom line if you don�t mind the work or if this is your hobby this is a great,,, BUT for the most part I would say stay clear of this gun take your 25.00 and add 5 more of them for 150.00 I would recommend The Benjamin Legacy 1000 Air Rifle its a very nice and safe gun but if you do opt for the cheap Chinese gun WATCH YOUR FINGERS AND THUMB IT COULD CUT THEM OFF if the bear trap fails and they have been known to fail you could loose the use of your fingers
