1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Very nice!

    I've never seen a Leshiy in the flesh, this certainly puts it into perspective for me. Wow.

    Oh, don’t know if these are of interest Anthony, but the s10 when I got it, after it was sent to JB and the rapid I’d based it on 76F0627B-8547-495E-9EA5-56A2FA4ABE81.png E557EE3B-8CBF-4E69-B265-CA0BCEBDBC71.jpeg 80998801-CA96-4D06-BC9E-3C1D4D4D9A87.jpeg 8E2A4747-3DD4-44BF-8A97-91037ACD53B0.png

    Oh yes, I like that!

    The S10 is a compact rifle in shroud mode, it’s not that much longer than the Leshiy:)

    Very nice mate!

    In terms of length there not a million miles apart, am I remembering correctly that the s10 had the barrel and shroud shortened?

    Now in terms of weight that's where the similarities end I suspect, my s10 was a heavy rifle in comparison to say the rapid.

    I will always hanker after another s10, a jb one at that as there's just something about them.

    Great pics mate and hopefully you can get it put to good use on fur and feathers if not already done so

    That's a very nice nice rapid and it's the compactness that I really like in my guns, I have a rapid that's got a 12" barrel on it which brings it very similar in length to a bsa ultra, it's a work in progress as its undergoing a caliber change from .22 over to .177

    Having seen Simon's @Robin's compact rapid and this makes me want it complete and ready to shoot! 20200523_104415.jpg 20200523_104415.jpg

    Thanks Gareth ~ yes, the barrel was shortened to 10” by JB in 2018.

    Already been out with it at a permission, will update on a hunting thread later.

    Cheers Stevie,

    NB. My Leshiy has a 350mm barrel fitted, so it’s just under 4” longer than the standard Leshiy.

    Many thanks for these images Wayne ~ it’s great to get the background story.
    I’m very pleased with it.

    Had a long chat with JB and he explained further about the correct cocking operation and why I had a few lock-up’s.

    It’s all running very smoothly now - lovely rig.

    All the best :thumb:

    I can imagine a Leshiy, cleaning up some rough saloons in the wild west. ;):hunting:
