Things I liked:Received my wood stock version model BP2264 M-Rod .22. I had the 10 shot test from PA. The chronograph looked good (went from 887 to 895 and back to 880 in the 10 shots starting at 3000psi). I mounted a Leupold VX-2 3X9-33 Ultralight EFR scope. I started at 10 yds the first shot was about 3" low and right on the vertical. I put the rifle in my gun rest and sighted on the target then moved my vertical till the cross hairs centered on the bullet hole. Next shot was high so I adjusted the scope down. The third shot was dead center. I moved the target to 22yds and took two shots in same hole adjusted the scope. As I was about to shoot again a fly landed on the target so I took a crack at it, nothing left but fly guts around the hole. My wife came out and took a shot at a new target and hit about 1/16 off center at the 22 yds. This was unbelievable all these shots were with Crosman premium pointed 14.3grain pellets. Have 250 plus shots now with no bolt or magazine or other problem.
Things I would have changed:I pumped the gun up from the 2500psi left from the 10 shot test to 3000psi. The pump gauge read about 2000 psi at the beginning and 2500 after pumping about 55 pumps. I figure the pump gauge is off and the gun gauge is correct but don't know for sure. The gauges should be tested. The trigger could be adjusted a lot better from the factory. The design seems very good the parts quality also seems good the quality control could easily be better.
What others should know:Do a visual check, I found the screw holding the trigger guard was loose about three turns. Then noticed the protective plastic on the air gauge would not peal off of one side. I removed the stock and removed the plastic put the stock back on and found it was bound against the gauge. I then sanded the stock until I could get a piece of paper between the stock and gauge. After reading all the issues with the magazine I ordered an extra one. I sat down and read the instructions and played with the magazine until I had it figured out. No hard force should be needed or it could be damaged. Same goes for the bolt and rest of gun. Boy am I glad I started with those Crosman pellets they are the best so far. A few others are almost as good. Some are so bad 6 groups at 34yds, I may have returned the rifle. I have tried about 10 different pellets so far and still looking for one that will shoot minus dime size groups at 34yds my longest range in the back yard.
Things I liked:This is a really decent air rifle. I can see why it's the most popular choice amongst new airgunners. It's not my first nice air rifle but it may become my second favorite.
Things I would have changed:Possibly make the adjustable cheek piece easier to raise and lower.
What others should know:If you don't have a nice PCP air rifle yet, the Marauder is likely the best choice for your first one. You won't be disappointed.
Things I liked:Quiet, accurate, powerful, no recoil. Solid, nicely finished piece of hardware. The 10-shot magazines are much preferable to hand loading single pellets for every shot.
Things I would have changed:Package with 3 magazines, the number of good shots you can get on one charge.
What others should know:I'm a novice to airguns (5 months) and this is my first PCP after 2 gas piston break-barrels and a steel spring-piston side-lever. The overwhelming first impression after those other rifles is the relative quietness and the lack of any recoil. Thirty good shots will drop the charge from 3000 to 2000 psi. Sixty to 75 pumps with the bundled Benjamin hand pump bring it back up to 3000 psi. Pumping is not overly hard since you're solely using your body weight over the last 3 inches of stroke. That said, it takes virtually all of my 140 pounds to get those last 3 inches.
