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:Beautiful stock but too short of a butt. (My sleeve length is 33 to 34). Fairly quiet considering. Things I would have changed:The "plastic" pellet clips are mickey mouse and a PITA! I own 3 of them. Some line up and load pellets like they're made to (along with a slap/push with the palm of your hand) and some don't. Hatsan has a much better arrangement. Also mount some sights. What others should know:I have the .25. Shoots fairly hard
Things I liked:Craftsmanship is excellent. Accuracy is spot on...only deviations are mine. So far, it has been a real joy to own. I am still amazed at how quiet it is when shooting. Things I would have changed:The textured finish at the end of the barrel easily scratches surfaces it contacts. What others should know:This is my first PCP, and it will be quite a while before I would move to anything else.
Things I liked:I read the reviews about the guns accuracy and trigger etc.....all true....5 shots to sight in the scope and then....same hole after same hole after same hole.........my chipmunk population is not thrilled but I just love this gun!! What others should know:if you can afford it buy a carbon or scuba tank......pumping it up by hand is somewhat of a hassle......I fill it to 2700psi and pump it back up when it gets down to 2000psi.....lots easier than letting it run out
