    Don't know who else has seen this video but it appears that Huma will be making a pellet dispenser for the Leshiy. I know some of us here have either talked about needing something like this or came up with one of our own design. It will be nice if there will be something we can buy now. Bill

    They are coming shortly.  I believe they are I. Final assembly.  I’ve been testing one in .25 and it’s 👌

    I’ll have a write up soon… I was waiting for them to be on the way to edgunwest so folks didn’t have to get excited and then wait.

    I made one using about a 3/8” strip of neoprene that I Velcro on my wrist . I drilled holes in it where I can insert 24 pellets. You just compress the neoprene with your finger tips and the pellets easily lift out for use in the gun.

    When I first heard about it I was excited and right away started looking at where to buy it. Once I seen the inner workings and seen how the pellet just falls out I lost interest real fast. I do like thats its not made of plastic however. To me it just looks like a more or less copy of what others are already doing by modifying an airgun magazine for much less. When I first heard about it I thought that there would be a truly unique design. I mean I could go out into my garage and make one of these if I wanted. Just my opinion but I feel they really dropped the ball on this.

    I personally think a pellet pen is a lot more sensible!  I haven't seen a pen for 25 cal.  Do the make them?

    Did a quick search and could not find any .25 pellet pens. I might look into one in .22 though. They just seem so easy to break.

    I think your expectations for dispensing a pellet might be a little high.  You want some over engineered spring mechanism to gently hand it to you or something? This is fully CNC'd, 2 piece construction using a strong magnet to keep it together.  The installation is about as clean you can get, and it's 1/3 of the size of anything you can do in 3D printing.

    If you have this machine in your garage to make this… have at it.  I suspect your referencing a 3D printed option.  Yes, there are those, I've owned them.  I'm not putting a cheap hockey puck on the side of my $1,400 gun to save $30.  Nobody dropped the ball on this IMO… it's perfect.  why can I say this… I actually have one in hand for months, and I've owned multiple 3D printed versions (all damaged the pellet and were an eye sore).  It just works, doesn't distract from the gun, and like the gun… you could role your car over it.  I think the folks who buy it will not be disappointed

    that's what I did before this… as the 3D printed ones kept damaging the skirts.  The problem with what you describe… you now have a piece of neoprene on the side of your gun.  Kinda ghetto ;).  I've never tried the ones on my wrist, but it's similar to the pen… something extra I need to grab.  The foam is functional though… I found the pen awkward

    I get where your coming from. I have no doubt that this is made of strong materials. Sure, I could make one in my garage it would not be hard to do. I even have the magnets. I mean really I feel like you took this all to seriously as if I was calling the thing a piece of junk or something. That I was not. I have no doubt that this is a quality part. And sure I would love to try one and still might. But I personally still think that it was not all that well thought out. Thats just my opinion. If you like it and think its the best thing ever that fine and im fine with that.

    I didn’t take it too seriously… I just know a small business who does his best to make great aftermarket products put a ton of time and money into making it.  I’m just disagreeing with your visual assessment.

    side note… if you have a CNC machine in your garage… let’s talk offline ;)
