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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hi folks,

    Twice now my Leshiy has loosed off a round as the safety is switched off (no trigger contact). Both times the first shot after a fill.

    Anyone else seen this? (Good number of goblin snipers on here)

    Hmmm, 2 stage trigger ?...

    I'd hazard a guess at the 2nd stage sear engagement being to fine...

    leshiy doesn't have a 2 stage trigger. gun can go off where the trigger is pulled with the safety on and then the gun fires as soon as the safety button is pushed into the off position

    I do have the pseudo stage two trigger setup.

    I reckon @spaspeckerthedull my have it. Trigger set during filling and then released by the safety?

    Sorry but that sounds well dangerous!

    My 97 trigger housing was damaged (by my own stupidity) and every so often I’d pull the trigger and nothing would happen. I had to point it up range and bang the rifle with the palm of my hand and after a while it would fire! It felt so incredibly dangerous that I put it into my local RFD who had a spare Rekord housing! £40 later, no problem...

    Get it sorted buddy, it could end up with you getting hurt! (Or somebody else!!)

    Best of luck!

    That was my initial thought too, only a matter of time before you end up shooting yerself "or worse" someone else, a brief laps in concentration is all it'll take and suddenly "blap" you're now the proud owner of a foot with a hole in it...

    Wonder who came up with that little nugget...

    Absolutely chaps, the root cause will be found and sorted.

    Not nearly as bad as my brother’s semi auto Steyr pistol that would sometimes machine-gun five pellets on loading the mag!

    My stupidity! I thought I’d bent the little lug at the top rear of the housing so I set about straightening it only to realise that it was supposed to be bent! DOH!!!! Kept it as a reminder of what an idiot I can be!

    Hehe, never again!

    You’ll need an extra spring in there to help the sear set if you’ve done the faux second stage. The original spring is not man enough.

    There’s videos and tutorials out there.

    Be safe

    Which is why, in nearly three years of Leshiy ownership, I have never tampered with the factory trigger.

    Yes, some might like to get jiggy with aftermarket stuff but unless you really know what you’re doing I would strongly advise to enjoy it as per the original design.

    Lots of trigger time and you can achieve remarkable precision with this rig.

    I was just about to tag you and ask whether you'd had this problem with the standard trigger, but knew you wouldnt have.

    It’s fine to mod things if you know what you are doing, but triggers are too crucial for guess work.

    To be fair the stock trigger is ok at best.

    Just getting used to how ordinary it is, especially given the price point, is hardly a defence.

    My trigger is now superb, cost nothing to make good and for my use, adds pride of ownership and accuracy.

    But I’d leave be rather than create a hazard.

    Folk have to remember, this isn't a crappy sing stage trigger thats been skimped on in an otherwise excellent rifle.
    The trigger has been designed to be just as it comes

    This is spot on. Happened to me when I first bought the Leshiy brand new.
    I later did the 2nd stage trigger mod which just means adding the spring loaded ball screw and the spring under the trigger guard. No changing/filing of sears involved at all.
