By Rodney from USA on 2010-12-04 00:46:55Things I liked:I was fortunate to receive one of the first Marauder .22 pistols. Mine is #38 of the first 75 made. When I opened the box I found that it was already charged to 1000 PSI. It is a long gun even without the stock but well balanced. It’s also as quiet as I expected. I also own a marauder .25 caliber rifle. The pistol is a smaller version of the rifle. It’s very well made. Your going to need a scope, it has no open sights. The grip and forearm are plastic. There is no wood whatsoever. The pressure gauge is easy to read. I’m very pleased with it out of the box.
Things I would have changed:This pistol is new. I would like to see an addition of wood to the forearm and grip. The add on stock is a standard Crosman carbine plastic stock. I’m cretin that someone will make a conversion kit using wood. This gun begs for it. The pistol can be shot as a single shot or using the 8 shot clip. I think the clip could be made a little stronger it’s all plastic and a metal clip would be better. At present additional clips are not available. When the are get a few more.
What others should know:This is a heavy gun, be prepared to use two hands. It’s long and big and best of all “Quiet.” The Barrel alone is 11 inches long. When you go to refill it with air, the dust cap on the end pops off. I spent about a minuet trying to unscrew it. I use a scuba tank to refill it, so I can’t tell you how many pumps it takes to fill the air reservoir.

By jack from USA on 2013-07-14 08:47:17Things I liked:this is my 2nd marauder pistol. 1st one was awesome. all shots between 702 & 712 fps on 10 for 10 test. 5 shot groups in same hole. 2nd pistol was a piece of crap. shots were all below 690 fps with a wide gap between high & low. about 50 fps on 10 for 10 test. accuracy stunk. shots were all over target. thought the reason for 10 for 10 test was so you wouldn't get a lemon. sent 2nd pistol back for replacement. out of stock so I haven't received replacement yet.
Things I would have changed:make shoulder stock tighter. you will have to shim it if you want a tight fit. I have this stock on 3 pistols & had to shim all of them.
What others should know:if you get a good one, in my opinion, it is the best pistol out there for the price. quiet, accurate, & well made.
