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.

    Oh wow! Didn’t realise it has all that!

    As accurate as say an HW100 at 50 yards? (.177)

    Tempted to sell a few guns now lol

    I have a 110 set up for hunting and a few pistols that could go....

    Is it worth the £1000+ price tag or would you say it’s a novelty?

    I love the compact size of it

    @Reevo17
    I wouldn’t say it is as precise as the .177 HW100 and in my case, my JB BSA R10 MK2.
    (The trigger on the Leshiy is single stage and takes getting used to).

    However, it is seriously capable and even more refined with the longer 350mm barrels fitted.

    It’s certainly not a novelty, rather a compact, well built tool, that is perfect for pesting within my usual sub12 distances of anywhere from 15 - 40 yards.

    You can buy some lovely airguns for £1,000 but as the Leshiy is unique, it’s on a class of its own.

    The fact they come up for sale infrequently, probably speaks volumes.

    If you find a decent Gen1 model, (same as mine), don’t think twice about buying it. :up:

    You can fit a digital gauge to a Gen1 but I prefer the original as it’s straightforward to read. I only need to know how much air is left, not all the other stuff. (which I’ve already worked out).

    Gen1’s have a metal trigger guard and back part which opens, if you want to hang your rig off the backpack.
    Gen2 are plastic in these areas.

    Gen1’s also came with a high spec hard case.. really nice.

    Also, and probably more importantly, the Gen1 are free from anti-tamper nonsense, which allows easier changing of barrels with the relevant adjustments, to keep everything in order energy wise.
    You can have AT removed or do it yourself if you know what you’re doing.

    For sub12 Leshiy’s I would strongly recommend fitting the ‘Huma sub12 Kit’ which includes a regulator and softer hammer spring.

    I’ve got mine fine tuned and enjoy just under 100 usable shots in .22 caliber.
    (fewer shots will be achieved with a 250mm barrel).

    Hope this helps :thumb:

    Like the write up and interesting to see where people are shooting. Would it not be of interest just to have the one feeder as you know they will all come to it, or is the wood you shoot in quite big.

    Thanks :up:

    The newer feeder is in a test spot near the natural Holly Bush Hide - I’ve decided to move operations there when I next visit.

    The other feeder will be relocated deeper into the wood, which is a fair size.

    I’m looking forward to seeing some good results over the next couple of months.

    No problem - sorry about the typos which have now been amended.

    They are regulated from the factory, but are mostly setup for FAC shooting and so using the factory Reg can be problematic for sub12.

    The Huma sub12 regulators have a smaller plenum, hence the increased shot count.
    They can also be easily adjusted.

    I think that Ed from EdGum has recently developed / improved his factory regulators, so I would assume the newer models will have them fitted.

    I saw a video some time ago where he has the marked up tape on the reg, showing various adjustments points - similar to Huma.
