  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.

Edgun Lelya 2.0 - My Ongoing Photo Thread (and Some Random Thoughts)

    Yeah... a little bit late jump on the Lelya 2.0 bandwagon but still better than never. So let me start my usual ongoing thread of my piuctures (mostly), thought, tips, mods and such. But before I start with some initial thoughts - here's my combo - Lelya 2.0 in 177 (set at roughly 12 fpe), 1-6x24 C-More scope, Leupold mount and Eberlestock S25 Cherry Bomb pack. Two polymer mags and JSB Exact ammo. What a combo!

    [​IMG]

    I admit, it looks really cool. Actually it's not the bad thing that I waited a bit... as far as I know Edgun changed supplier of the wood material and the stock is quite stunning. BTW, Edgun West has a Matador R5M Long with that new kind of wood in stock. At least the one in the picture looks just gorgeous. Overall look is more like 'micro Matador R5M' than old Lelya, which is not a bad thing. It shares mechanics with new Matador, so should be robust and reliable. Actually I regret selling old Lelya, it was so compact! New one is small, but not as small as original one (about 2 inches difference, not much) and it's considerably heavier due to bigger tank, bigger moderator and multishot system. BUT the great news is - it STILL FITS PERFECTLY inside Eberlestock S25 Cherry Bomb. And that is an awesome pack, which I reviewed here: https://motusworld.com/2013/12/review-eberlestock-s25-cherry-bomb-secret-weapons-backpack

    Comparison to Leshiy? Well, two VERY different animals and my Leshiy is not going anywhere. Leshiy is considerably smaller for transport BUT it's longer in shooting position! So if you're looking for maximum maneuverability in a dense bushy forest etc. than Lelya 2.0 is considerably better choice. That is a bit surprising to me. But... that's how it is.

    Lelya 2.0 handles well, cycles nice and smooth, shoots AWESOME off-hand. It's shorter than Leshiy and much heavier - the more 'condensed mass' is probably main reason for that great off-hand shooting. Trigger is a bit crisper too, but I got used to Leshiy's trigger. As I said - different animals. Leshiy is a portable modular airgun, kind of 'urban ambush' gun (if I may say so) and Lelya 2.0 is more traditional (but supercompact) bullpup multishot.

    So far I noticed just one thing I'd correct in Lelya 2.0 (and I did) - I added white 'indexing dot' on magazine, so that I always know if I'm empty or if there is still that last pellet to cycle into chamber. But it was 5 seconds job with white permanent marker. Quick summary after two weeks - I'm soooo delighted with my new toy! And it just perfectly fills the gap between my Leshiy in .22 and my R5 cannon in .30, both single shots.

    Of course I'll keep that thread alive, no worry. And here it is on duty in the forest:

    Been using her for another week... really like the off-hand shootability of that new Lelya. However I still need to find & buy an aftermarket bipod/weaver adapter (one that fits into front guard screw socket). There are some guys producing that stuff on CNC. Anyway, together with that Cherry Bomb pack it makes an easy to carry around multishot setup, capable of pellet on pellet accuracy at 35 yards and easily half inch groups at 50.

    Hmmm.... and she looks quite handsome too. For a photography junkie like me that is a valid factor, like it or not.

    Need to top my tank first... I’ve got 220 bar in a tank so I’ll answer in a week or two how nany shots between 250 and 120 bar.

    BTW, someone asked me about longer distanses - didn’t try my Lelya on anything above 50 so far. For longer distance I shoot at my local 100m shooting range with R5 .30 cal and of course there's no comparison between .30 and .177 at anything beyond 50y.

    The only real drawback of 177 is lack of wind resistance, but since I’ve got two guns in 22 and one in 30… no problem with that. Just having fun with Lelya so far, learning trigger, etc.

    Late update but it’s vacation time, and taking Lelya up into the mountains for a family hike is not an option. But just before vacation I played with my L in the field... so much fun!

    That stock is a piece of art :cool:

    As for the Lelya, I have had one a week or do, and the only niggle so far is shorter pellets have a tendency to drop out of the mag as they won’t quite reach the orings to grip them.
    I had to make something to address it, just from bits, and it sticks on the gun with a magnet.
