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.

  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.

    Let me tell a bit more HUMA pellet dispenser. It's an ongoing never-ending story of my Leshiy after all :)

    [​IMG]

    https://www.huma-air.com/Edgun-Leshiy-Pellet-Dispenser

    So you've got Leshiy? Cool! Shooting off the bench is fine, with pellets in the tin. Sun is shining and life is good. But what if you want it to be your grab & go solution? So that you don't have to open a tin, box, pouch or whatever after each shot? And I believe no serious shooter uses just a front pocket... that would be bad bad news for Leshiy's barrels. Barrels hate sand dust, which builds up in the pockets no matter what. So far I've been using a piece of foam with holes punched in it but that was neither safe (for pellets) nor elegant. There were some solutions around but finally HUMA made it correct - it's simple to operate, compact, easy to install... and tough as nails!

    [​IMG]

    The idea is just so simple - full metal body (same kind of hard alloy as Leshiy), black anodized, and sized just big enough for easy operation but still small enough to keep low profile of Leshiy. It really looks like it belongs to Leshiy! And that branding... how cool is that! To install just pop-out the ammo wheel from chassis (held by magnets, no tools needed) and install with the provided screws and spacers on Leshiy's rail. Takes 3 minutes to install and adjust carefully. Gently thighten screws (don't overtight!) and put back the wheel. Done.

    [​IMG]

    With gun pointing in safe direction turn it upside down and load the pellets by rotating ammo cylinder. Ball-bearing indexing aligns it perfectly for each pellet. In .22 it holds 13 rounds. Yeah, it's caliber specific so my advise - if you're using 2 calibers and swap barrels all the time - get dispenser in bigger caliber and just use for both. However, if you want to store maximum number of pellets and you don't swap barrels each day - I'd recommend to buy specific ones as the differences are considerable. In 177 it holds 17 rounds and 25 holds 11. Anyway... the choice is yours BUT if you're using 177 I'd defenetly recommend to get this specific one. There's a clear difference between 17 and 11 pellets close at hand.

    [​IMG]

    And when it's loaded... just cock the gun, grab dispenser, turn one click, and pellet is safely in your hand. Load and fire - fast & easy. Really #1 Leshiy accessory ever imho. Now Leshiy is really a grab & go solution.

    My Leshiy is still used a lot for backyard plinking, awesome airgun! So a small update for you. First of all I exchanged scopes between my Lelya and Leshiy - now I use Dedal on Lelya and (as you can see) C-More 1-6x on Leshiy. Both fit great, both work awesome, but it's still fun to change scopes and try new combos.

    [​IMG]

    Another thing is I've got a new 3D printed pellet dispenser from CARM (https://www.facebook.com/CARMDesign3D). It was sent to me for evaluation and I was only asked just to email back my opinion and if I'd change anything. However... why shouldn't I share my thoughts with all of you here? Let's start with the technology - it's all 3D printed with just the pivot and one more construction screw made of metal. I've used some 3D printed parts before. Some of them were useless and I broke them at the installation phase due to very VERY low quality of printing and very weak material. Some of them were printed in such a way, that I'd NEVER say it was a printed part! Like the AR-style grip, which is really dense, solid, and you really can't tell it was printed (no traces) due to extremely good technology / material / resolution, etc. How's CARM compared to this? It's somewhere in between. It's holding up OK, the material is relatively solid, the rail part nicely printed with firm precise fit and the 'rail catch' is flexible and keeps the magazine firm in place. I carried it on my Leshiy (also in a backpack) and so far - no issues. Still the printing traces are clearly visible - but it's solid and works good, no complains.

    [​IMG]

    Now some practical thoughts. First of all - it is designed for Leshiy Gen.2 with slightly different angled trigger guard. So on my Gen.1 it's not exactly in line with guard but it still 'catches' rail in such a spot, that dispenser is perfectly supported by the edge of trigger guard. Actually it's all that matters, this exact point, so it's as firm as on Leshiy Gen.2. Rotation is easy, clicks are crisp. CARM in .22 holds 17 pellets so depending on your tune you can just buy couple of mags (to get max number of shots), load them and you know perfectly when your Leshiy needs refill.

    [​IMG]

    Putting mag on and off the gun is easy and doesn't cause any wear on the mag. Back holes let you see how many pellets are left. Of course you can close the air tube with mag on the airgun, no problem. You can even have it on Leshiy simultaneously with HUME dispenser! So in total you can have 30 pellets onboard!

    [​IMG]

    Also you can keep two different pellets if you want, say JSB Exact for long range and Hades for close range 'destructive' plinking. Whatever you want, just mix and match.

    [​IMG]

    OK, so natural question is... how it compares to HUMA, which is a really super solid full metal dispenser? Well, for sure HUMA is more 'elegant' solution (looks just like a natural part of Leshiy, same material, same anodizing, nice logo, etc.). Also HUMA is full metal, almost indestructible, you purchase one and it'll last forever. It will survive almost any abuse. However, if you go for CARM, you've got more pellets, you can put it on and off the gun if required, you can purchase almost two with the same money (61 vs 35 GBP) and you can simply change mags if you want to change ammo or "reload". But milled metal and nylon 3D printing are different leagues in durability. So it's more a decision if you prefer flexibility (and lower price) or fixed but indestructible solution. For some answer will be 'of course CARM!" but for some plastic on an airgun is just unacceptable. So you need to decide... and what is my choice? Well, I'll keep both on my Leshiy and enjoy total of 30 pellets on the gun. I like the CARM overall as a good solution, but HUMA is just too good looking and too solid to take it off my Leshiy anytime soon.
