    I've been eyeing the EDgun Leshiy, this is quite tempting

    There were some reports of safety concerns. There's also a safety statement at http://www.rtiarms.eu/priest/safety

    and a pressure test on YouTube below (video description reads, "For the test to work, we had to alter the regulator to not regulate air, but to output all it gets. So whatever went into the bottle, was directed thru the regulator and into the rifle.").

    There was also a review on another airgun forum where a user was quite impressed except with the crunching noise of the cocking lever. I reckon JvL can deburr that and sprinkle his oofle dust to make it a real machine. Someone else complained about accuracy, but that could be anything (bad pellet choice, dirty barrel, whatever else).

    In the review vid, what's that high pitched shrill after each shot (Shooting starts around here: RTI Arms - The Priest (full review) - YouTube )? That would drive me nuts if it's from the gun.

    Looks like they have tried to make a cheaper version of the FX Impact

    the Priest was in design stages before the Impact....and for the price...i reckon the Priest is way better "bang for buck" as the saying goes....

    I had a look at every review and video on this gun (good and bad) and believe this gun will be a contender out of the box. But true to my nature I will try to improve it. I can see this one in my safe for a long time.

    Cannot wait for The Priest to arrive. I believe this one will create a lot of action here.

    I hope the 35gr pellets from the Huben molds on its way will work in The Priest. Molds should be here soon.

    Shot some groups and did some chrony stings today. What a lovely rifle.

    These groups were shot over a xbag, these rifles aren't made for this kind of thing and I can't really shoot of a bench. Outside in wind at 50M.
    I think it is dam good for the conditions.

    This was with AA 16gr, first group, 5 shots.


    This was the worst group of the day 5x shots 50m.
