Nah, don’t give up on her.Check out those guys in South Africa (Airgun 101). They’re shooting pigeons well over 200yds wit FX. My Condor seems like its best suited for a boat anchor even after the Ring-Loc valves.
tNah, don’t give up on her.
Things about the Condor (mine is the SS in 22 cal)
Hammer spring is too weak and too long;
Hammer is too light.
The valve sucks
The valve to get has a larger diameter than the stock one and also has 3 ports vs 2.
For long range slugs are the only way to go.
Compensating for spin drift is vital.
I’ve settled on NSA slugs from 20 to 31 grains. With the 24.8 grain offering being my goto ammo.
@ 960 MV, 50 yd zero drops are 8 MOA @ 100, 12 MOA @ 125 and 18 MOA @ 152.
Plenty of fpe and great expansion in cheap Walmart modeling clay.
Mourning dove accuracy to 152 yards.
Main quarry will be coyotes.
For doves, pigeon, squirrel etc I use Crossman Premier 14.3s. Pushed hard they are effective beyond 100 yds.
