My first HUMA Edgun Leshiy arrived! Any scope suggestions?
This thing is a neat little toy!!! Never thought I would buy another single shot Edgun before anticitpating buying a new 22 Lelya multishot but here it is.
Just received a "New to me" Leshiy in 177 with 350mm barrel and custom laminate grips in my favorite color. First impression is that it is very light and compact and noticeably quiet for a PCP pistol carbine. It sounds like my 177 Vortek HW30(S) in 177 which is nowhere near silent shooting but within back yard friendliness. Previous owner told me it is currently set up for 50 plus shots on a 250 bar fill at around 15fpe. It can be bumped up or down but I think I'll leave it be for now.
As I was shouldering it I noticed I may have difficulty finding an adequate scope and/or mounts for it.
Specs on the Leupold state 25 yard min parallax. Others on another forum claimed 17 yards and better and I decided to buy when found on sale. I can easily get 15 yards min parallax on 12 power. So I would think anywhere between 15 and 17 yard to be minimum parallax on full power.
Retail price seems to be between $449.99 $499.99. Presently at SWFA I see them for $350.oo.
If you live close by I would make arrangements to meet up. Always nice to see first hand. I'm in Northern CA.
Thanks you for your kind offer but unfortuneately I don't live in Cali and the last time I visited was more than 40 years ago. Will keep you in mind if I ever get a chance to go to Cali.
I have been looking at the same thing you are looking at – a suitable scope for a take-down subcarbine. In my case an Artemis PP700S-A.
I have looked high and low, and it’s been very hard, if you’re trying to get a number of features that are very common in scopes larger than say 14" in length: E.g.:
As an airgunner, my scope’s parallax must focus down to 10y, I shoot that close and closer.
And to make my holdover adjustments I need exposed turrets (capped turrets intrigue me – why put a lid on something I need frequently and that functions perfectly – unless it does not function all that well?!?
I still need magnification for long range shooting, so 12x was a typical top end, but I also looked at 9x.
I wanted to limit this search to $500 max, but most models §hardly any had through thetime of the day.
So, I started making a table to compare the specs of the shorts scopes. The table is still in draft form, but here’s something useful for everybody....
Thanks for that useful table of scopes. I wonder how the Falcon optics scopes are?
Pretty neat reticle when I checked them out on the SWFA site. They look similar to the TAC Vector.
That UMOA reticle for the Leaper UTG is really nice. I have the 2-16x but the optics isn't the greatest but OK from around 3.5x-14.5x.
What drives me mad is the incongruent measurement units:
Many reticles (esp. from UTG, MTC, Nikko, even Hawke) are in mil (mrad) — BUT their turrets click in moa...! Make up your mind: MOA/MOA or MIL/MIL!
It's like making the road signs in miles per hour, and the speedometers only show kilometers.... = called "STUPID" in my book. Don't know which book the scope designers and engineers are using.... 😒
