Edgun Leshiy 2 REPR - flexible air rifle platform



Log in to see fewer ads
decided to share my foray into pcp rifles...as i am pretty much done customizing it.
buy once, cry once, i wanted a semi-auto that was compact, but could be configured with a longer barrel if needed (or larger caliber) later on.

my shopping cart has has been full a few times, and i changed my mind...

ended up with this Leshiy 2 REPR (REPR models have adjustable regulators).
opted for the 350mm barrel over the shorter 250mm...

pretty much stock...but with a different grip...



needed it quieter, so added a silencer and cf handguard.



but then it became too long so i cut down the cf guard...added a higher mount for both eyes open shooting.



now it can pack down to 16"



i can also shorten the silencer, so it is basically the same length as the original, but still 5db quieter, for woods or action shooting



* the gloves are just for composition...and i hate wearing gloves unless it is cold.

Those are some fine shootin irons.

I watch his videos all the time.
I especially enjoy his homemade tracers.

the rifle is hammerless, and the trigger action pushes on the release valve, hence it isn't adjustable or anything like a 2-stage trigger that most of us would find ideal for precision shooting, but it isn't terrible heavy, has a short reset (because it is so simple) and thus it isn't difficult to shoot multiple shots quickly (which might be why you bought a semi-auto in the first place).

i have done this faster, but this is my first try at a "mag dump"
the target below was me getting it zeroed.
8 rounds in ~2 seconds...if you slow down the playback you can see all 8 shots.

i put whiteout in the cups of some pellets to see if i could catch them on video better but i think the frame rate of the sightmark wraith hd i am using is too slow.

They are neat, enjoy the videos as well. I went much more conventional with a Daystate Huntsman Revere, all the good PCP's are a ton of fun.

I went from a Hatsan 44-10QE .25 to an AirVenturi Avenger .22 and now the Daystate .25 in about 3 months, getting a good Compressor makes it easy. The Hatsan is powerful but a total brick thus the Huntsman, I'd give the Hatsan to someone willing to take it away, lol.

pretty sure the hatsan bullmaster was the first pcp airgun i almost bought, after watching a video on it on the Twang and Bang youtube channel, 4 or 5 years ago. i didn't buy it then because of air supply, and i live in a condo where the compressor may not be neighbor friendly (i live on the top floor).

sort of glad i waited.
