Things I liked:Tough Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:While the Blue Streak was plenty accurate with the Williams peep sight I had on it, these 67 year old eyes like the BSA 4x12 scope better. The factory mounts would not allow proper positioning of a rifle scope. It does require a little dexterity to get the pellets in the chamber. I should this a long time ago. Buy this one or your Sheridan or Benjamin pumper.
Things I liked:Very substantial weight. I have had adult air rifles for 28 years and the Beeman R1 can still shoot with the best of them. Their are alot of hobbyists out there who have to change everything. The Marauder group is no different. Chnage this, change that, blah, blah. Find a good pellet, buy 10,000 of them, find the right pressure and speed and shoot 'em up. Enjoy! Things I would have changed:Bolt removal screw should be in a location NOT below the scope. What others should know:Try someone elses pump and or air tank before you order. You will probably NOT buy the pump. Do not get me wrong. I have the pump and I have a tank coming but with the political environement we live in who knows whether we will have electricity or scuba shops to fill our tanks. The pump is good insurance.
Things I liked:Not very much. They are not the same quality as Crosman Premiers. Things I would have changed:Get rid of the pointed hollow-point pellets. Maybe 1.5" at 20 yards. What others should know:Don't waste your time or money.
Things I liked:I like the weight and the quality. It rivals anything from the famed German factories. The walnut is absolutely flawless. Unlike a lot springers the TX shoots very well off the bench as long as you don't hold in a death grip. Let it move. Things I would have changed:Nothing, right now. What others should know:IT IS HEAVY.
Things I liked:I would offer a metal plate to be placed in the box ahead of the duct seal. I put one in mine. Things I would have changed:In the photo I put aluminum strips around the exterior to save the box from errant pellets. I think this should be standard. What others should know:When this target is shot up you will have a good model for your own build.
Things I liked:Compact and comes with sunshade. Things I would have changed:The entire lens system. Totally useless. Typical Leapers quality. I had another one on my Marauder. I gave it away to an enemy. What others should know:Don't waste your money. It focuses in the center of the lens only. Edge sharpness is worthless. I would return it but it would cost to much to ship.
Things I liked:Compact and light but that is probably why it is no good. Things I would have changed:The cheap plastic lens are terrible. There is no, none, nada, edge resolution. Completely useless except in the middle of the lens. I bought a Leapers/UTG scope with my first Marauder. I gave it away to an enemy. I should have learned my lesson. Junk! Junk! What others should know:Buy Hawke or Leopold and save yourself some grief and save your eyesight!
Things I liked:Not much. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:These cannot be installed with a complete take down of the barrel/shroud. The buffer installed by pulling it through the hole into the shroud. This is done at the factory during manufacturer. Do not buy them because you cannot use them. A o-ring around the end of the cocking handle is better.
