Things I liked:It's a powerful, accurate rifle. reponds well and not too heavy. It perform well in the field. Takes down rabbit and squirrels without any problem using heavy pellets. Things I would have changed:I'd like to see it in a .22
Things I liked:Is the Marauder worth the $480 plus the $200 you'll need to shell out for a pump? Yes.
Things I would have changed:Can't think of anything. What others should know:Great power, great accuracy, great gun.
Things I liked:A beautifully made gun. It's big and heavy, but it feels very good to shoot. Underlever is smooth and effort is minimal for the fps.
The price for this gun is really a steal. Things I would have changed:For this price, I wouldn't change a thing.
Things I liked:I can shoot this gun all day long.
It is light,powerful and extremely accurate.
I shoot the 853 as much as a Winchester 94. Things I would have changed:Loading could be a little easier, but then I have big fingers. What others should know:853 is a tight, rock solid little target gun that won't cost an arm and a leg. It's a really great gun.
Things I liked:I love this rifle. It is a heavy beast for a .177 but after you zero your scope you just don't care. It is accurate as all get out. The stock has a great feel to it. The scope pad is a great feature. The trigger has a 'set, go' feel to it that I like a lot. Things I would have changed:Not much. What others should know:It is a heavy gun.
Things I liked:I think when all is said and done this is the best ammo out there at the moment. The pellet is heavier than a Federal .22 Hollow Point. It may not be the fastest pellet there is, but it is going to hit where you point it.
Things I would have changed:Nuttin. What others should know:If you hunt with .22, you should use these.
Things I liked:Great power, easy to cock, easy to use. Scope rail is great. Things I would have changed:Can't thing of any... What others should know:It's not as heavy as you would think, consiering the .22 caliber and the power.
It's a beast, though.
Things I liked:Great accuracy and value for the money. Things I would have changed:500 in a tin What others should know:These are dusted with graphite to reduce friction, so don't think you have lead dust on your fingers.
Things I liked:A superbly accurate target rifle. If you miss, it's either adjust the sight or adjust your shooting technique. Things I would have changed:A hood on the rear sight. What others should know:I bore sighted with my handy fiber optic bore sighter and then dialed in at 10 m secured in a gun vise. Hand picked 10 good H&N wadcutters. The rifle cut center on every shot. That's pretty darn good...
Things I liked:The accuracy of the Marauder is hard to believe. Out of the box,I put a Jumbo Monster in the bull, and then another right through the same hit. Makes you laugh out loud. Is it quiet? Again, you will not beleive that you are sending pellets downrange at 100 fps plus with a report that cannot be heard in the next room. Things I would have changed:Nothing. It's a great rifle. What others should know:Okay, you have to pump it. Think of it as a free gym membership!
Things I liked:Extreme accuracy. Stock inserts lets me aim and fire without any problem, and I am not a small guy. Easy cocking, good trigger, great choice of front sight inserts. Quiet as can be. I made a 10 meter range in my basement. It is that quiet. Things I would have changed:Nuttin What others should know:I've fired over 4500 pellets with this rifle, and I still reach for it every day. It is really is a wonderful rifle. I can't recommend it enough.
Things I liked:I got this in .22 as I have the Tech Force Contender in .177. My 99 arrived rusty and without any lubrication, I exchanged it without a problem. The Tech Force Contender is one of my favorite and most accurate rifles. I think that the 99 will also become a favorite. Things I would have changed:For this price? Nothing.
These Tech Force underlevers combined with Pyramyd's return policy are a wonderful bargain. What others should know:I will still recommend this rifle because of Pyramyd's excellent returns policy. I think it might be a good idea to purchase a Ten fer Ten with this rifle. It doesn't cost that much anyway, so the extra $10 won't break yer bank.
Things I liked:Accuracy and weight and velocity. Real quality pellets and very fast even though they are heavy. Great for hunting. Things I would have changed:Nothing...except a screw on lid!!! What others should know:Try them, you'll like them.
Things I liked:Great quality, great weight, and great speed.
If you hunt, you will love 'em
If you plink you'll love 'em too.
If you shoot paper you'll get great groups. Things I would have changed:nothing...except a screw top lid. What others should know:These are really very good pellets. I guarantee that you will like them.
Things I liked:I have reviewed this pellet rifle before. I have the .22 wood. Yes, is really an excellent air rifle. I get consistent headshots on gray squirrels at 40 yards with positive and negative degrees of angle which as a lot of you know ain't easy. So, yes, it is a very accurate air rifle. Today I read the answer to a question on the Pyramid website about the costs involved in running an accurate PCP repeating rifle. The answer given by BB Peletier was that a $500.00 PCP repeater is going to shoot "rings around" a $189.00 Ruger 10/22 unless the 10/22 was tuned up and "tricked out". Scoped, new stock etc. Well, since the Marauder, a fine air rifle, doesn't have iron sights, I am pretty sure one needs a decent scope+ rings before it "shoots rings"around anything, right? Then there is the fact that from a solid position, I can make the same consistent head shots with my 10/22 at 100+ yards, and at 50-75 yards consistent head shots with my CZ bolt action .22 and subsonic ammo as quietly as I can Things I would have changed:with my Marauder, and neither of those .22 firearms are tricked out, unless tricked out means a mounted Leapers scope. So I really have to take umbrage with BB Peletier's comparison.
I like shooting air guns. But there is really no fair way to compare an air rifle, or any kind of air gun at all, with a firearm. The affordable/ entry level hunting rifles,Savage Axis, Remington 770 etc.in .30-06, will all throw a 150+ gr. expanding spire point boat tail bullet downrange with pretty good accuracy to 600 yards, and with a BTHP VLD out to 800 yards with a muzzle velocity of 2800+ fps. No air gun can do that, and I am not aware of any air gun that can ethically drop a deer outside of and air guns can, (without getting one thrown in jail!), such as legally and unobtrusively taking out that murder of crows causing trouble in suburbia.
What others should know:Anyway, I am not trolling or trying to advocate ONLY this or ONLY that. I just do not think that one can compare compressed air to smokeless powder. Each propellant has its uses and I enjoy shooting both very much as I am sure most of us shooters do.
Things I liked:Outstanding hunting pellets Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know: I am a bit taken aback as I read some of the other reviews here. If someone believes these pellets are too heavy, buy lighter pellets. They are not uniform. They are perfectly uniform. Skirts are damaged, skirts are perfect.
I think these are very good hunting pellets and I would recommend them for that purpose. If one cannot hit a walnut at 25 yards one should not be hunting with an air gun, one should be hunting with a .410 shotgun.
