Things I liked:Accurate and fun. Just got it and had a big group of friends over the day after it arrived. They all wanted to shoot it and loved it. Very quiet. Love the stock, it is beautiful.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
Things I liked:I zeroed scope and and shot at a 15 yard target first two days. On third day, I took my .22 wood Marauder on my ranch hunting, I anchored 3 ground squirrels (all at 15 to 20 yards away). I found I had hit exactly where I had aimed. I then overlooked my canyon and saw a ground squirrel about 40 yards away in the top of an old hollowed-out oak tree. The wind was blowing hard from the north west. I sighted in 1" to the left of the squirrels upper shoulder and released the trigger. The ground squirrel dropped. When I reached the dispatched ground squirrel and saw the pellet had done its job exactly where I had anticipated. I then went down a trail I had made at the bottom of the canyon. Soon I saw two more ground squirrels. I took aim at the one on the left,and dispatched it too. I took squirrels to my meadow for the ravens to eat. This rifle is better than I expected. The wood stock with black cheek riser, is much more accurate than my .22 using cb shorts. Rifle handles like a shotgun.
Things I would have changed:Rifle shroud and air reservoir appears to be painted rather than blued. I suspect it is because shroud is aluminum. Better rifle gauge as mine doesn't work reliably, however Crosman is going to replace it. I am using only the gauge on Benjamin pump until the new gauge arrives Quick disconnect on Benjamin pump is giving me problems and Sun Power is sending me another. Kudos to both of them. Is this rifle accurate, quiet, well built, worth the money, heavy, does it have a great looking solid feeling beautiful wood grain stock like the picture? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes! Would I recommend this .22 cal in wood stock instead of a .22 powder burner for dispatching ground squirrels without breaking the sound barrier? Yes! Was the Benjamin pump easy to operate with very little sweat for a 64 year old weighing 167 lbs.(takes 2 to 2 1/2 pumps per shot). I see no need for a scuba tank. Would I recommend Pyramid Air with their good prices and excellent satisfaction policy? Yes!
What others should know:The following strings of 10 shots each from a single charge were mostly hole in hole and all 60 shots (6 strings)were able to be covered with a penny. Here are the 6 groups chronograph-ed with 1 full charge from Benjamin pump to 3000 psi. This with no adjustments to the rifle. Using Crosman Premiere 14.3 domes, here are the velocity of the 60 shots. String 1...860, 860, 865, 872, 866, 877, 864, 876, 882, 883: String 2... 881, 895, 893, 889, 880, 893, 902, 892, 891, 895: String 3... 896, 902, 898, 904, 900, 896, 902, 903, 902, 907: String 4... 907, 903, 900, 903, 902, 906, 901, 900, 892, 891: String 5... 888, 892, 889, 886, 884, 882, 879, 877, 873, 865: String 6... 865, 858, 855, 853, 847, 842, 838, 836, 830, 823. Don't lean against wall like a powder burner due to the free floating barrel. I canceled a pre-order of an NP2 due to delays and early reviews. Almost triple the money for .22 cal wood marauder. "Totally worth it to me." Awesome wood stock demands extra special care.
Things I liked:Recently purchased the .25 cal 2013 Wood stock w/ comb and got the Ultimate Bundle with Hawke scope. I was a bit skeptical since I was toying with either going with a .177 or .22. But in the end decided that the .25 has a Green Mountain barrel and was worth extra as well as I could target shoot, small game and pest control all in one without wanting more power or more accuracy, trade off a few less shots increased cost of pellets. I typically get 20 shots before having to recharge using JSB Kings or Benjamin pellets from 3000 to 2000 psi. Both have shot extremely well are dead on target @ 50 yards I am shooting a quarter size group with factory settings. I did not have a chance to Chrony the air rifle yet. However plan to do it soon. Having the adjustable comb makes it great when target shooting or offhand. The fit and finish for my rifle for the stock and components have been excellent. Wood in great condition and smooth no edges.
Things I would have changed:Overall the gun is a bit heavier than expected, Synthetic stock would be nice for use in the woods since its 1 lbs. lighter. The PSI/BAR gauge on the gun is useless off at least 200-300 psi, use the air pump gauge instead. The trigger itself has a rough edge some light sand paper to smooth it out would be helpful.
What others should know:I picked up my order from Pyramyd Air locally. Excellent Customer service. Order was correct and everything well packaged.
