    Yeah… a little bit late jump on the Lelya 2.0 bandwagon but still better than never. So let me start my usual ongoing thread of my thoughts, piuctures, tips, mods and such. But before I start with some initial thoughts – here's my combo – Lelya 2.0 in 177 (set at roughly 12 fpe), 1-6×24 C-More scope, Leupold mount and Eberlestock S25 Cherry Bomb pack. Two polymer mags and JSB Exact ammo. What a combo!

    I admit, it looks really cool. Actually it's not the bad thing that I waited a bit… as far as I know Edgun changed supplier of the wood material and the stock is quite stunning. BTW, Edgun West has a Matador R5M Long with that new kind of wood in stock. At least the one in the picture looks just gorgeous. Overall look is more like 'micro Matador R5M' than old Lelya, which is not a bad thing. It shares mechanics with new Matador, so should be robust and reliable. Actually I regret selling old Lelya, it was so compact! New one is small, but not as small as original one (about 2 inches difference, not much) and it's considerably heavier due to bigger tank, bigger moderator and multishot system. BUT the great news is – it STILL FITS PERFECTLY inside Eberlestock S25 Cherry Bomb. And that is an awesome pack, which I reviewed here: https://motusworld.com/2013/12/review-eberlestock-s25-cherry-bomb-secret-weapons-backpack

    Comparison to Leshiy? Well, two VERY different animals and my Leshiy is not going anywhere. Leshiy is considerably smaller for transport BUT it's longer in shooting position! So if you're looking for maximum maneuverability in a dense bushy forest etc. than Lelya 2.0 is considerably better choice. That is a bit surprising to me. But… that's how it is.

    Lelya 2.0 handles well, cycles nice and smooth, shoots AWESOME off-hand. It's shorter than Leshiy and much heavier – the more 'condensed mass' is probably main reason for that great off-hand shooting. Trigger is a bit crisper too, but I got used to Leshiy's trigger. As I said – different animals. Leshiy is a portable modular airgun, kind of 'urban ambush' gun (if I may say so) and Lelya 2.0 is more traditional (but supercompact) bullpup multishot.

    So far I noticed just one thing I'd correct in Lelya 2.0 (and I did) – I added white 'indexing dot' on magazine, so that I always know if I'm empty or if there is still that last pellet to cycle into chamber. But it was 5 seconds job with white permanent marker. Quick summary after two weeks – I'm soooo delighted with my new toy! And it just perfectly fills the gap between my Leshiy in .22 and my R5 cannon in .30, both single shots. 

    Of course I'll keep that thread alive, no worry. And here it is on duty in the forest:

    Cheers!

    I have been looking at a Leshy, but have been worried about the LOP.   My LOP on powderburners is 12.5-13".  Your post confirms that.  I like your choice of calibers too.  If I could sell one of my .25's, my next caliber will be .177.

    It the perfect little bullpup.  I have around 5k shots through it, still works perfect and never had an issue.

    I'll be doing the Long Ranger Off-Hand with it soon.

    How many shots per fill are you getting at that power level?

    A beautiful piece of working art. If I talk myself into selling the Super long the Lelya is next. And I feel the same way about my Leshiy, it's here to stay.

    I just ordered one yesterday from Brian at Ed Gun west. I’m sure hoping that it will have good figure in the wood like yours does. I really wanted a .177 but none were available so I’m getting a .22 set up for the 16 grain pellets. I should have it by Wednesday. Very excited! Your post was what finally pushed me over the edge…thank you!

    Enjoy your new toy… you’ll be delighted! And with Brian’s tune it’ll be surely even sweeter to shoot than mine.
