I bought this rifle last month in a bit of a mess from Airheads airguns . I knew it was going to be a challenge to get it shooting again but I pulled it off. There is absolutely zero recoil from this rifle when the trigger is pulled. Very PCP like . The stock was dull and it needed a good scrubbing , covered in a sticky mess around the grip and fore stock. Some mild dish soap , and warm water followed by some black water based stain on the stippling and last was a few thin coats of Truoil . I made a replacement breech seal at .296mm thigh from an old HW80 seal , it’s holding up but I bought a replacement for it from AHR as well as a new set of springs . The springs were damaged during the initial rebuild when they cocked sideways and kinked . Inhale to have the parts to finish by next week. The rifle is missing the factory rear diopter sight and after searching for quite a while , I ended up installing an RWS 6x42 scope on it which is more than enough magnification for the 10m the rifle was intended for. It’s a great shooter and the lightest trigger pull I’ve ever had the pleasure of pulling . Once complete , this ones going up for sale . I like it but I’m having fun , bringing these old gems back to life. If anyone out there has one that needs repair , I might just be the guy you want to fix it.

Cool, but what the heck is that thing? Is it a old side lever? Google didn't show up anything relevant for Condor 75.

This is a rebranded Diana model 75. A true Recoilless 10m target rifle. It is a GISS system rifle using opposing pistons. A true engineering feat.

It’s not very powerful , shooting 7.3 grain JSB exacts at 580 fps. I’m sure with a properly fitted breech seal it should do a bit better, there are reports of these rifle shooting up to about 620fps with the same pellets. I would’t think there are too many of these around anymore. This was is date stamped April of 1981.

Good find.
Somewhere between 600fps and 620fps is "Target Range" for 10M air rifle competition, seems to me.
My old M150 FWB Tyrolean produced 610 with 8gr. R10's. Extremely accurate with those and actually
made 1/10" C to C groups at 20 yards with them, scoped and from a rest.

MY Winchester 333 (Diana 65-same family with Giss system) was rated @ 575 fps in original brochure and when I last tested was @ 596fps with 7gr pellet and @ 549 fps with 8.2 gr pellet. Not very powerful but extremely accurate @10M and as was mentioned, the trigger is the lightest I have ever experienced.

It sure is nice. I think the ability to bring old guns back to factory spec is a remarkable skill. Great job Hobbyman as always.
