Upgrades from the original version of the gun: Factory-installed depinger changes the sharp "ping" to a dull thud. Improved valve (increases the number of shots: .177/.22=32 shots, .25=16 shots). Trigger moved back for better hand position. Optional reversible bolt for left- or right-handed shooters (with our special service). Simplified breech design for assembly, service and to provide a more stable platform for larger scopes.
As the caliber increases, the gun becomes somewhat louder.
Testing has shown that filling your Marauder air rifle to no more than 2,600 psi (179 bar) may deliver the greatest accuracy. We recommend trying different fill levels between 2000 and 3000 psi to determine the optimum fill level for your own rifle. Each gun is different. A chronograph is the best way to determine optimum fill levels for precharged pneumatics (PCPs).
*The owner's manual does not show the correct weight and length for this rifle.
The owner's manual states this about fill pressures:
"The Marauder has been factory set to an efficient fill pressure that will suit most hunting and target
If you're just venturing into PCP guns, get this gun! You'll be hooked for life. It's not just the fact that it's remarkably accurate. But it's got a spectacular trigger. One that you usually find on much more expensive guns.
Benjamin has done everything right when it comes to filling this gun because the quick-disconnect is an industry standard. You'll never have a problem finding a way to fill your gun with air.
The deep, rich bluing and the stockwork are reminiscent of fine European air rifles...but you'll be paying a lot less than what you'd spend for one of them. You will lack nothing with this air rifle. Get it. Shoot it. Enjoy it. You'll be the envy of your airgunning friends.
If you're left-handed and need the bolt moved to the left side of the rifle, please add that optional service to your cart when you buy your gun.
Things I liked:.22 accurate, powerful, inexpensive, backyard friendly, can't go wrong. some reviews say not accurate, mine is spot on with the right pellet, JBS EXACT jumbo heavy, H&N field target, H&N baracuda match, AA Diabolo field heavy and beeman crow magnun for hunting, off the shelf crosman premier and discovery work good too. Things I would have changed:front swivel studs is round for my Harris bipod, had to modify to fit. What others should know:get a bipod you'll never take it off.
Things I liked:The wood stock feels great in my hands. I amount of shots i get. Accuracy. The look. Things I would have changed:Make the clips metal. I haven't had any problems with my clips, i still use the clip from my original marauder, it just feels cheap. What others should know:I purchased this rifle thinking it would be a upgrade from my original marauder, the only thing that i can really tell that's any different is the stock. Which is nice, but other then that, i cant tell a difference. Both are quiet, both can put pellets into the same hole at 35 yards. I would consider this to be more of a plinking rifle then a hunting rifle, even though it is a capable hunter. Where as I would consider my hatsan bt65 to be more or a hunter then a plinker.
Things I liked:Quiet. Great tripper. Very accurate rifle. Very fun to shoot. Things I would have changed:Crossman needs to supply silicone lube with this rifle. I doesn't work very well without it. What others should know:This is a very accurate fun shooting rifle. If you shoot it a lot you really need a carbon tank system for air supply.
