    Default Cheap scope @ 100m long range shootinging

    I have a 3.5-10x40 scope which is copy of Leupold M3,the quality is cheap and cost about $50 delivered from ebay. people use it on airsoft BB gun in china mostly. just for the look of it...


    i received my new condor .20 recently, for 100m target shooting i normally use Zos 10-40x50 and set it at 24X or 40X. however.. i just wanna try some small mag long range shooting....and decided to use that cheapy scope for 100m shooting today... the weather was nice... just sometime wind picks up quickly and dies... can't complain...


    my new AIRFORCE CONDOR .20, it killed 2 HW silencers so far, got 1 fixed and tried today, only last 1 shot then got killed again, the way this condor kills the silencer wasn't caused by pellet chip the internal part or anything, but after the pellet fly out the silencer, the negative pressure behind of the pellet suck and squeezing the inside material together... which completly block the pellet travel passage. this kind of thing i hav never seen before.








    I set scope at 10X and compensated 4 mil-dot. there is no bench in the field just by standing next to bakkie bonnet and rest bipods on...grouping 1.












    grouping 2, when i busy shooting.. suddenly the stronge wind picks up... i decided not wait till the wind to calm down... instead i just take a quick shot into the stronge wind and see what happens in that kind of condition...hehe... the wind actually shifts my POI about 3 inch to the left... it's good exercise and nice to know about the result.












    after done enough 100m shooting with 10X, then I crank the scope to minimum mag setting... 3.5X !!! and shoot with it at 100m range... now everything became so small in that 3.5X scope... but nice to try out... 5 shots fired... 3 shots were tight... 1 shot touched edge... and last 1 off the target..










    this is how the otherside of board looks like... Talon/Condor .20... enough said...

    i think i should be pretty comfortable with small mag scope for long range shooting with rangfinder....

    what next? open sight? maybe...hehe

    Impressive power for 100m! The grouping isn't too shabby either.

    Condor uses LW barrel as standard.

    Any condor made from 2008 have many improvements from old versions... generaly the trigger is pretty good out of box... 1st stage quite light... and 2nd stage break clear... nothing wrong...

    I got 20 shots around 60fpe... well... since I shoot between 140-180bar fill.. so it's not really reached FULL POWER yet...if tune down the power by 20%... then will get about 40 shots.

    swordfish... since my talon ss is modified and shoots about the same as condor... so compare them just like compare left and right hands...

    if compare stock condor and talon, there are some differences:

    stock condor : extra hammer weight / 24" .20 barrel / hi-flow valve.

    stock talon : in SA, most of talon made before 2008 got 18" .177 barrel as std. ( from 2008 the stock talon available in .20 18" barrel as std ) / shorter frame / std valve.

    u will got more shots from talon since it has small valve to restrict air flow. so if u wanna have many shot counts then rather stay with S400 at 12fpe... but many people choose to have a AirForce rifle is simply for the POWER...

    the AF rifle's design very simple and highly efficient in air flow... the valve port is located right behind of pellet... extremely easy to achieve awesome power and still remain decent accuracy... they easy to work with... almost any parts can be made locally...
