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.

    Has anyone that has an Edgun Leshiy experienced the following fault. I can fill the Leshiy with air no problem but when I pull the trigger the gun fires but dumps all of the air out of the barrel.
    Is it some kind of ‘out of sync’ problem.

    Sounds like the air valve is sticking open after the hammer has struck it.
    It's easy to check. completely discharge the cylinder with the release valve , remove the cylinder, unscrew the plenum from the hinged section to reveal the valve stem. the valve stem should move freely without binding. I assume It is Huma reg'd?

    5 minute job once you’ve fully discharged the air from the cylinder.. (don’t forget to retighten the bleed screw).

    Any further issues, please do not hesitate to ask here or PM me.

    Cheers

    Is the Leshiy an early one ? Does it have the metal trigger guard and butt stock?
    Does it still have the Edgun factor reg installed?

    The MK1 has an issue where if fired below the set reg pressure, the hammer damaged the valve. This could be the cause.
    The mk2 has a redesigned hammer that doesn't cause valve damage.

    If a mk2 it could be a foreign body causing the issue, it could also be (but hopefully not) due to a badly shortened valve during a Huma conversion.

    As stated above, its a simple procedure to swap the valve if damaged.

    More info needed
    But whatever the cause, I'd say as the others, definitely valve related

    Right with a mk2 I reckon there are 2 options
    1)If its a BAR suplied one with a Huma reg fitted I reckon a foreign body (bit of muck or dust) causing valve to stick.
    2) if its been ordered in and converted to Huma, afterwards from the factory reg, its possible valve has been damaged during conversion or foreign body as above.

    In either event it involves bleeding the cylinder of air totally and the valve removing and inspecting at the very least.
    As Shoto1 describes, its a simple procedure.
    This vid shows how to do it

    One final thought of a "possible" cause. I'm saying possible cause as I'm not sure whether it would happen, but..................
    Have you adjusted hammer spring tension at all ?
    If you have it may be possible that too much tension may put enough pressure on hammer to keep the valve open.
    Presumably if you have made any adjustments, you have the use of a chrono ?

    Great videos. It was these, the comprehensive @PiterM review and the three part Leshiy strip down series that Ed @EDgun put together which convinced me I had to have one.
    I would go as far to say this gun is unlikely to ever disappoint me, I know it inside out and It makes me smile everytime I handle and shoot it, just like my Mak 654k.
    I like my other guns a lot, but the Leshiy is something special, easily reconfigurable and utilitarian without any fluff. I doubt I'll ever part with it.

    Thanks for the advice. Ill check all that out. On another point do you know if there is an english version of the edgun parts website. I want to order a part and they just sent me a link to the parts website which is in Russian and I cant make head nor tail of it.

    See the attached parts schematics for the Leshiy . I've included the .177 and .22 schematics
    EDGUNUK are the UK supplier. Proprietor Graham Denney. You "should" be able to source any Edgun part via him /them. Edguns.uk@gmail.com

    How about edgun West? I know its based in the states but some parts should be okay.. I asked about the stalker scope and they said they cannot post due to us laws! I thought it meant zoom function ones! Who knows.....

    What about the Czech website as well can't find the link or remember the name?

    Edgunuk seems to be a bit of a hash up at the moment, he sends a link to Edgunuk but the website isn't registered yet! Although ring him PM for number, if he answers he will probably have some bits laying around
