EDgun is a name that’s been around the airgun world for some time. It’s a premium product that’s starting to really make its mark. In this article, we’ll take a look at the four basic designs and compare the similarities and differences of each.
It’s important to establish that each model comes in two basic variations; short and long. The shorter version will have a lower shot capacity and often generate less power. But, it will be lighter and have a much smaller profile as well.
All the EDgun models remain consistent with the exceptionally high build quality, material quality, fit and finish, performance, and accuracy. You really can’t go wrong with an EDgun air rifle.
Standard & Long
The Leshiy series is a single shot carbine or micro carbine that’s cocked by the folding stock. It’s an interesting design that’s about delivering the most compact and lightest package possible. Both feature match triggers, match barrels, a regulated valve system, and integrated moderators.
The Leshiy Standard is available in .177, .22, and .25 calibers. It’s a carbine form factor airgun built on a minimalist frame and folding stock. The long description is somewhat misleading as it’s only about 28.85 inches long. With most long airguns surpassing 40 inches, the EDgun Leshiy Long is very compact. Power output will vary by caliber and pellet, but you should expect to see mid 20 foot-pounds in .177, mid 30 foot-pounds in .22, and low to mid 40 foot-pounds in the .25 caliber.
If 28.85 inches is just too long, then don’t worry; there’s the standard Leshiy. This is essentially a micro carbine coming in at around 25 inches. It has the same minimalist frame and folding stock. Expect to drop about 5 to 7-foot pounds per caliber when you switch to the standard Leshiy.
Standard & Long
The EDgun Leshiy 2 is a semi-automatic airgun platform that builds on the minimalist designs of the original Leshiy. It retains a folding stock, match trigger, match barrel, regulated valve, integrated moderator, and carbine and micro carbine form factor. The major difference is that where the Leshiy is a single shot, the Leshiy 2 is a semi-automatic multi-shot airgun. Additionally, where the Leshiy topped out at .25 caliber, the Leshiy 2 pushes to .30 caliber.
The Leshiy 2 Long is 29.25 inches, generating a little less energy across .177, .22, and .25 calibers compared to the Leshiy. The .30 caliber pushes lead up to 805 FPS, about 65 foot-pounds depending on the pellet used.
The Leshiy 2 standard follows the same convention as the Leshiy. It’s very short, has all the same basic features, but generates a little less energy across the board.
Standard & Long
The EDgun Matador is another bullpup design. Both are available in .177, .22, and .25 calibers. They all continue to include the same exceptional trigger, barrel, regulated valving system, and integrated moderator.
The standard model is 27.5 inches long and delivers impressive power numbers. Power will vary based on pellet, but the FPS numbers are as follows: .177 up to 950 FPS, .22 up to 920 FPS, and .25 also up to 920 FPS. The walnut stock is a little longer than the Lelya but still quite small as compared to other products in the market.
The EDgun Matador Long version retains all the key features of the standard but now measures 32 inches in length. The power also goes up as the barrel length is now 23.25 inches vs. 18.75 inches in the standard. Again, power will vary based on pellet, but the FPS numbers are as follows: .177 up to 985 FPS, .22 up to 950 FPS, and .25 also up to 950 FPS.
The EDgun Lelya departs from the carbine form factor, transitioning to a micro bullpup design. With an overall length of only 23.5 inches, it delivers more power than the Leishy or Leishy 2, most likely due to the longer barrel. The Lelya also moves from a metal frame or chassis form factor in favor of a beautiful walnut stock. It’s available in .177, .22, and .25 calibers. Other features include a match barrel, match trigger, multi-shot magazine, double-sided front cocking lever, regulated valve, and integrated moderator.
As you can see, EDgun air rifles bring a lot of variety to airgunners. It’s all based on keeping things as compact as possible while delivering on build quality, performance, and accuracy.
