    We’ve got still really not shooting-friendly weather but it should change next week. But before that… what about sharing one more unpublished autumn pic, which I recently found on my SD card and processed it a little bit more than I usually do, just for visual fun. Enjoy! And below also link to slightly higher resolution file if you’d like to use it as a screensaver etc. Yeah, Leshiy is damn sexy looking airgun!

    So… did some more shooting (a lot actually), got used to Leshiy, put lower mounts (UTG) so now the clearance of scope-to-gun is just 1.5mm, put more precise bipod. Yesterday weather was perfect: dry, overcast, no wind. So did 50m test with Hawke onboard and most of my 5-shot groups were within 20mm diameter. Plenty tight for such a construction imho. The new trigger (light and uber_smooth) helps a lot! I believe I can still shave 1-2mm with 350mm barrel… time will tell.  

    Of course I used the opportunity to take some more pictures… here’s one of them, enjoy!

IS THAT A SKULL I see on the tree behind the Leshiy. Photography effect or did you just capture proof that ghosts exist.

    @jfrazier30: new trigger compared to Matador & Lelya, it’s a completely new technical design.

    @fearnloading: photography is my hobby #1 and I don’t believe in ghost. But I do believe that photoshop is a cool tool…

    EDIT: a short note on Leshiy’s recoil: yes, there is one more important factor, which makes Leshiy so shootable. It’s a character of recoil. A lot of guys think that PCP doesn’t recoil. Wrong! It’s recoilless… so it recoils, just sell! But at ranges of 50 meters or more (let alone 100+) even that small recoil plays key role. Leshiy is a lightweight platform at under 2kg (scoped) so it clearly recoils when shot. Compare it to Matador (above 3kg scoped) or FX Bobcat (above 4kg scoped) – yeah, especially at higher energy levels recoil becomes an important factor. Now let’s study recoil: on most PCP’s hammer strikes toward front of the gun and when it hits a valve -> a gun recoils to front. But milliseconds later pellet travels up the barrel and gun recoils to the back. That change of recoil direction (whip effect) causes most problems on PCP. Of course this effect is proportional to a pellet weigth and speed (squared) and  inversely proportional to the weight of a gun. Now a recoil of Leshiy: it is VERY different than in vast majority of other PCP’s as it’s one-directional, without ‘whip effect’. Hammer strikes a valve toward back so Leshiy recoils initially to back, and when pellet accelerates towards a muzzle Leshiy smoothly continues to recoil in the same direction. It’s an unidirectional smooth recoil, and that  combined with smooth trigger (equipped with over-travel stop screw) helps A LOT with the accuracy. And even if it was not a planned effect, if it’s just an additional result of the construction… I don’t care. It just works that way. And it works great! And that’s IMHO also one of the factors why Leshiy shoots so good off-hand. That effect should be even more important for .25 cal set at high speed. Enjoy!

    Heavy snowfalls here again… but it doesn’t stop me from some Leshiy fun. And it fits inside my Saddleback Leather briefcase, so I can take a break in the field on my way to a business meeting. Much better break than another coffee at a gas station…

    And slightly bigger version available to download HERE

    Some cool videos found on you tube.  

    LESHIY ALL BARRELS UN BOXING and a few of Tony videos talking about the Leshiy

    Also a squirrel hunting video and one where the laser prints the edgun logo on the Leshiy. (super awesome)

Piter, 
    Why have you removed the Hawke scope?

    “jfrazier30”Why have you removed the Hawke scope? 

     

    
Just for some fun… I like that SWFA, it’s really VERY shootable option. I shoulder my Leshiy an the reticle is JUST there, on target. No PA adjustment, everything past 25 yards is just sharp, and I don’t shoot below 25y anyway – no fun, you just hit what you aim at. But in the meantime… scope change again and trying new fore grip as the weather is back autumn! I just play with toys ;)

     

    And PDW SHADO pack is a cool carry option as well, more field oriented than my SBL briefcase.

     

    Cheers!

    Can you provide a link for those UTG mounts that work so perfectly with the Hawke scope?

    Is it UTG MEDIUM profile?

    Thanks for your help Piter!  

    so…  the Bug Buster scope just went on SALE.  It comes WITH the Medium height, 1″ rings.  The whole package is 65 bucks!    That’s like getting regular priced rings and the scope for 45 dollars!!

    I love the Bug Buster scopes.  This will be my 3rd one.  The reticle is a little too fat, but it’s still an unbelievable value. 

    (my Leshiy WILL be wearing the Airmax 2-7 scope however)

    I just get my leshiy today. Shooting JSB 18.13 at 815 fps is so powerful for me due to backyard friendly (loud, recoil, low shot count). I adjusted hammer to get 750 fps but it raises up to 810 fps again when the pressure downs close to 130 bar … I think my regulator was set to 130 bar … any help ???

    Adjust the Reg to 110 bar. That’s the best setting. As the pressure reaches close to 130, the fps will increase cause the gun isn’t shooting at regulated pressure.

    With regulator 130 bar, mine gets 17 consistent shoots at 815 fps using JSB 18.13 (230 bar down to 130 bar) … Is it bad result?.

    I don’t know my regulator setting, guess about $110 bar. I have 45 shots at 550 fps from 240-110 bar with JSB 18.13.

    This morning, I set regulator 130 bar down to 110 bar (60 degree turning clockwise ~ 20 bar) and 9 clicks hammer. I have 30 shots at  avg 725 fps from 230-110 bar using JSB 18.13
