I have not had a reason to take it apart yet, but judging from Ed's videos maintenance will be simple.  I've shot a wildcat .22, once. It was a few years ago and with a synthetic stock.  Quality seems about the same, but I swear Russian metal just has a more firm, ridged, and strong feeling.  The Lelya comes with a moderator as standard, mag holders as standard, and walnut stock as standard.   The Wildcat does not.  They both have the same power output but the Lelya is shorter.  Shot count is not bad either, a 210bar fill gives me over 30 shots (three mags, or one ).  A 300bar fill gives me over six mag (two full sets of magazines).  I only fill to 300 bar when I need the high shot count for a long day trip into the woods. As of accuracy out to about 75 yards it is a toss up between the WC and Lelya.  It think, from what I read and remember, around 100 yards the wildcat is a little tighter due to the longer barrel and smooth twist which the lower twist rate stabilizes the pellet for longer ranges.
