Here’s a .25 EDgun Lelya 2.0 topped with a Vector Veyron 3-12x44mm FFP non-IR.

I’ve taken squirrels, rabbits, crow, and raccoon with this gun all within 50 yards shooting JSB King Diabolo pellets. Great little woods walker and truck gun. It’s my preferred woods walker for hunting small game. It shoulders nicely, is lightweight, well balanced, and about as rugged as I need it to be. It’s very comfortable to shoot offhand. I’ve hunted in light snow, misting rain, high heat and humidity and have had minimal issues. It’s a pretty quiet gun to shoot (the action and report).

A good example is this, one day after I finished squirrel hunting on a ranch, I stopped to converse with the owner on my way out. As we spoke, a small murder of crows started lighting in around one of his ponds. I noticed the noise and numbers and asked,”That’s a lot of crows. Have they been problematic for you?” He told me that had. From eating his pecans to eating his feed for livestock they were a problem. I asked, “Do you mind if I take care of some them?” He said that he didn’t, so I crept up to his fence line and kneeled in front of his gate. I took aim at a crow in group on the ground at the water’s edge and let him have it. He flopped over on his side and from there it was pure bedlam!! They started cawing, jumping around, and flipping out. Some took flight and circled the pond. In the midst of it all I kept shooting at crows on the ground. The ambidextrous cocking lever came in handy that day. I could hear the shots hitting the crows amidst the noise, but the report did not scare them off. I don’t think they knew what was going on because the gun was quiet, I was still in camo and I was well concealed behind a gate. That’s not the only time I knocked off crows on this ranch with this gun. I’ve shot one out of one of his pecan trees from about 15-20 yards. I shot and dropped it stoned dead and the next closest crow, in front of it, just flew off without making a sound. I doubt that it realized what had occurred because they usually make a hell of a ruckus when a member of their cohort is injured or killed.

The EDgun Lelya 2.0 really is quiet. Aside from the typical airgun ping, you only hear the cocking mechanism for a brief moment while advancing the next projectile. If the stock configuration is not quiet enough for you, EDgun makes a BAT moderator that’s an inch or two longer and is supposed to be even more quiet. I’ve bought one, but never felt the need to use it. All in all, this gun is a great hunter. I wouldn’t purchase one primarily for target shooting or plinking. If you like small-game hunting and pesting close range, you may want to experience an EDgun Lelya 2.0. It’s a pellet shooter that can also shoot FX hybrid slugs (and probably other light slugs), but considering that I generally don’t shoot pst 50 yards at animals with this gun, I see no need for shooting slugs with it. I think there’s great support for this gun in the form of exploded diagrams and repair tutorials released by the manufacturer. The gun’s design is pretty straight forward so it is not difficult to work on. To adjust the hammer spring you must remove the stock. This takes about a minute to do. To adjust the regulator you need to get into the reservoir. There is no external regulator adjustment. I bought mine used and never adjusted to reg. The range of power is respectable from what I’ve read and been told.

My apologies for not being able to locate photos of the crows from the above stories.

That's exactly how my .25 Lelya 2.0 is setup as well :)

Are you using the "official" Vector throw lever on the scope? Mine didn't come with one.

Also which air tube ring with the picatinny rail mount? I know the one from rrages.com was good but they no longer make the product, I had something similar 3D printed.
 
@Sound Tribe Yes I use Vector throw levers purchased separately from Amzn (the “big river” site). The tube adapter was removed. It came with the gun. No idea where it was purchased. It rubbed off the paint/anodizing beneath it on the air tube, the screws were unnecessarily long, and I hardly used it. I like the gun better without it. Removing it makes working on the gun so much easier.
 
The long I am shooting the 25.5 grain fx pellets. Really haven't pushed the rifle to much, but have been getting great groups with it. Used the rifle two months ago at my local NRL22 match and did quite well with it.....until the last stage where I forgot to rotate my scope back to zero!

Next time I get to the range let me do some chronograph test and see what she does. I have some slugs that other people have had success with.
