  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.

    Another aspect (and I was just asked this question so why not answering also here for everyone).

    How loud is Leshiy compared to my EdGun Lelya?

    Not an easy question but let's try. All at same power setting of about 12 fpe for the comparison (of course):
    a) Leshiy .22 vs older Lelya .177 with 'centered' moderator -> Lelya is simply louder
    b) Leshiy .22 vs older Lelya .177 with EXTRA carbon EdGun moderator -> Lelya is considerably more quiet
    c) Leshiy .22 vs new Lelya .22 with off-center moderator -> very similar Level*

    (*) well, it's really hard to tell the difference due to different sound characteristic but I think Lelya would attract a bit less attention. The sound of Leshiy is lower, more serious & mature (if I can say that). Actually it's sexy awesome sound IMHO but it's immediately associated with some sort of "weapon" being fired. Lelya's sound is much more airgun-like. Of course all that either indoor or next to wall / building. In a reasonably open field both are virtually silent @ more than 15 yards. Actually hiss of a pellet going throug the air and impact on a target are WAY louder than a shot itself for a bystander. My Theoben SLR @ 12 fpe is MASSIVELY louder.

    BTW1 -> it's just my speculation but I believe Leshiy with extended 350mm barrel can be considearbly quieter than Lelya at the same power level.

    BTW2 -> I also fired Leshiy in my garage with silencer module removed, just to try it. WOW! I didn't expect such a blast! My wife went down to the garage to check if I was ok and asked what the hell was that? Yeah, that was loud. One-time try was enough for me, especially indoor.

    And just in case below: my older Lelya without and with the Extra silencer and my new Lelya with FAT off-center moderator:

    I've seen some available today (online) at the dealer in Finland, also in UK limit of 12 fpe in cal .22

    http://www.edgun.com/representativeseng.html

    (since the link at EdGun site to DASE Shop in Finland seems to be incorrect - click here: http://en.shop.dase.fi)

    EdGun Leshiy - my pictures & ongoing thoughts

    How strange. All I get is forum posts discussing dase gunshop not a page by the shop itself?

    Also when clicking the link it says page not found every time.

    I'll have a look some other time when they're a bit more established (the rifle not edgun)

    that's why I updated my post almost immediately with direct link :) (about an hour ago). It's a good shop, I purchased my Lelya from them. And owner is a good guy as well.

    OK, honestly I wanted to wait for a new scope and check it as well before posting but since I was almost ready... why not posting NOW? I had couple of days off recently so played with Leshiy a little bit... or maybe more than a little bit :rofl:

    disclaimer: please remember that my current setup with SWFA 1-4x24 scope is NOT optimized for long range airgun sniping. Up to 35m it's great, 50m is still fair, but anything past 50m is clearly crippled by magnification of my scope. However, for general shooting and power plinking, that scope is just awesome and I really enjoy looking through it... an on it as well, lol!

    ammo: I checked JSB Exact Express / 16gr / 18gr, and all that in 5.50 5.51 and 5.52 (where possible of course) so I really checked it well. Exact 16 grain and 18 grain in 5.52 works best for me. Actually 18gr seems to be just a hair better so for final testing I opted for 18 grain BUT for field plinking I’m gonna use mostly 16gr for more forgiving trajectory (not always I check distance with rangefinder). Also please understand that to shoot in the open field I decided to stay at just below 17 J of energy, which I believe can be very helpful for my colleagues in Europe (power restrictions of 17J / 12fpe in most countries). I know it's not massive but still more than adequate for my usual ranges. I used solid Harris bipod, Vortex rangefinder / Strelok Pro / perfectly calibrated scope & turrets (SWFA scopes are dead solid in this regard) so the trajectory was not an issue at all. Just measure, dial in, and shoot dead center. I tried also other pellets incl. HN Crow Magnum and Polymag Predator but (as expected) results were very disappointing.

    conditions: perfect! No wind, slight overcast, clear air. Awesome. And a cup of hot coffee next to Leshiy. Also I think a relatively slow shooting sequence (single shot gun) helps a lot to get the most of Leshiy.

    Distance: 25m
    - scope set at 4x is all I need at that distance.
    - usual group about half inch c-t-c, some groups hair below 12mm. Of course not all of them as I’m not a shooting machine but overall accuracy is just perfect.

    [​IMG]

    Distance: 50m
    - scope set at 4x and honestly, it was OK but on the edge of usability. SWFA 1-4x24 Classic Tactical has a very airgun friendly reticle with a diamond in the center. At that distance I could perfectly bracket the 2” Birchwood Casey targets in the diamond. So I was not aiming the center, I was bracketing the whole target. And it worked great, actually much better than expected. However, the size & shape of my targets helped me A LOT. It’d be much harder with smaller (below 1 inch) targets.
    - usual group within one inch, some groups 20/21mm c-t-c.

    [​IMG]

    Distance: 75m
    - scope set at 4x and it was absolutely not high enough
    - groups opened up to above 2 inches c-t-c and some were considerably above that… honestly, didn’t expect anything better at 75 yards at that energy level and with my 4x scope. Below is actually my best 75m group of the day.

    [​IMG]

    Initial conclusions:
    - at my power level surely I need .177 barrel and better scope. I’ve got Hawke Airmax on the way and extra barrel… well, as soon as they’re available from Ed’s dealers. My combo is awesome up to 50m and I will stick to that distance. I feel extremely comfortable at such distances, and really, for anything more than 50m I’d just take my Lelya. Or better yet Matador.
    - Leshiy is my walk-around precise plinker (FYI - I don’t hunt, just shoot for pleasure) so for me shot count is more important than power delivered down range – as long as accuracy is not affected of course. And imho that level of accuracy is absolutely fine! Of course it’d be hard to expect the same when shooting in the field without a bipod, so actually Leshiy has better potential than my off-hand shooting skills. And that means it’s ME who is limiting factor, not my airgun. Which is how it should be.
    - what I absolutely like about Leshiy is new trigger – it’s just great! Superbly smooth, light, very precise, adjustable and with overtravel stop. It’s best trigger I’ve had on my EdGun ever, incl. tuned & polished trigger on my Lelya. And of course that plays key role in accuracy.
    - if you want 100m long range hunting machine - just stop moaning and get Matador in .25 :D
    - and last but not least... can't wait for some other guys with Leshiy .25 set at full speed...

    GX7 is great camera! I used to have GF1, GX1 and G6.

    As I said autumn is photographer's dream time so let me show you more photos. But to keep the thread useful I've got another piece of advice for winter time. Get some GearSkin cordura adhesive material (http://www.gearskin.eu) and make use of it - waaaaaay better feeling during colder days. Did that to my Leshiy and it works like a dream. Much nicer cheek weld now vs. bare metal before. And if they'd offer Kryptek Typhoon (black) pattern - that would be even more cool! I used Woodland Digital camo pattern for my small project:

    Please stop posting photographs of this - you're making me want one and therefore risking my marital bliss :eek::laff:

    Yeah the GX7 is a great camera, I prefer mirrorless designs to full SLR due to their smaller size. I'm only just getting into photography but I do enjoy it.

    Once again some very good pics there.

    Thanks! If you check post #22 in this thread, well, it should answer your question I guess.
