Excellent as always... ThanksIf Airforce was not tempting me with the new Talon P .25 Pistol coming in a few months I would jump on a PRod. I still don't see how they will get near the claimed 50 fpe with it but I am willing to listen. I just tested a 12" barrel on my Condor and I get about 35 fpe in 22.

It will be interesting to see what they come up with. That's some serious power from an air pistol that's for sure.

They developed a new valve (an upgrade over the hiflo) I was told that is still being tested. They achieved the 50 fpe with Eun Jin 43 gr pellets. I suspect Kodiaks/Cudas will be less but more than adequate or the no lead pellets. Shots per fill is a qestion I have. I think the new valve may also end up being used on the 9mm barrel they are coming out with.
