Harmless,

Thanks for your input. Please, please give us your perspective and experience with compact hand pumps when you can. Thinking this is something many of us would like. FX is said to be working on such a device, related to the mechanism on the Indy/Independence.  Would prefer a pump that uses arm muscles more than back muscles, at least from an exercise point of view. There are also makers developing compact AC/DC capable electric pumps. That would fit into the target shooting scenarios my boy and I will get into hopefully sometime in the future. 

 

davidsng,

What a gorgeous tool! Love the pictures. Kind of worried my young son in the coming years might shoot his support hand with such a short gem as the Lelya; maybe should be more worried about me and old shooting habits. Have you done maintenance on your piece? Do you have any comparisons with perhaps the Wildcat? Have you used long pellets? Any details are most welcome. 

 

Brian, 

Please interrupt some more. You have responded at least 4 times to my email questions with alacrity and professionalism. That and the real-deal videos from Ed go far in building trust in workmanship and support. (A major dealer has seemingly ignored the one email question I asked them. Thinking I would go with the Utah folks if FX gets the nod). Will the long .25 pellets fit in the EDgun magazine? The easily removed breech portion of the EDguns is excellent, would you be so kind as to comment on o-ring replacement? How about as compared with the Wildcat? Will the Lelya be available with a synthetic stock in the foreseeable future? Please tell us why the R5M/Lelya is a better choice for a shooting tool that will be a workhorse without stablemates to fill in, if something breaks?
