Things I liked: This was my first pcp airgun but Ive shot firearms, airguns my whole life and owned several german spring piston airguns. This marauder opened my eyes to pcp and Ive also just purchased a bulldog, and plan on many other pcp purchases as well. Anyway, the Benjamin Marauder is fantastic. The synthetic is lightweight, easy to shoulder and point but made well. Ive picked up many synthetic stocked firearms that had cheaper made stocks. This synthetic marauder stock feels solid. Not hollow, thin, or chinsy like many others. It is utilitarian but beautiful.This gun is extremely quiet.The trigger is perfect and can be adjusted easily. Its incredibly accurate and the .25 cailber Is very powerful. I love that its a repeater. I love the pressure guage on bottom, away from barrel where it belongs, not right by the end of the barrel like Ive seen on many other pcp's. The mags are good, but they could be metal. Actions ok,its finally smoothing out. Great shot count and consistency for no regulator
Things I would have changed: DO AWAY WITH DOVETAIL MOUNTS, Please put Picatinny mounts on top and some more mounting options on the side of the forend or below it. Just somewhere up front where I can easily add a infared illuminator or light. Yes the armada is perfect for that but its not a traditional style rifle and cost alot more. The mags are ok and load quick but I wish they were metal. The one mag that came with the gun index's perfectly, the other 2 that I bought, Are a little finicky and sometimes I have to flick the mag with my finger when shooting to get them to cycle. The centerline of the gun could be a little lower which would allow the scope to be mounted lower. The gun should come with 2-3 mags instead of 1, and a degasser tool when bought. I cant say enough about how amazing this airgun is. Its absolutley brilliant. Get one!
What others should know: Ive put around three thousand rounds through it and it still puts a smile on my face everytime I shoot it. This gun is soo quiet that the sound of the pellet hitting paper or your target is louder than the gun. Its extremely accurrate and when using 31 grain H and N barricudas, or Jsb 33 grain diabolo King heavy (large skirt), I can stack pellets in the same hole at 30 yards here in my backyard. When I made my purchase only wood or black synthetic was available, but Ive seen '/crosman make several synthetic camo options. My only gripe is that I wish pyramyd had the full size marauder rifle (not the pistol)in the various camo patterns. So eventually maybe Ill get around to either buying a replacement camo stock and possibly a wood one, but If your thinking about getting one, dont think or put it off anymore. Buy it now!!! Its worth every penny and pyramyd air has been really helpful and they are just the best. Friendly, knowledgeable, curteous and caring staff.
Things I liked: Durability of the stock. Accuracy, Accuracy, again Accuracy. This thing is amazingly accurate and pretty quiet
Things I would have changed: I originally purchased with wooden stock for the look but changed to the synthetic stock to help with weight. Much better to just get synthetic from the beginning. This thing with scope can become heave and cumbersome.
What others should know: Overall great rifle. Squirrels don't stand a chance. Can hit 8 inch targets every time from 100 yards away on calm days and a solid rest. This little air gun is pretty great. Get an air tank and an adapter and don't bother with the hand pump. Also only comes with one magazine so order a few more when your checking out.
Things I liked: Great shipping from pyramydair. Well packaged and no damage to box! I got the .22 cal, and just love it. Mounted a Mantis 4-12-40AO scope mounted and sighted in at 25 yards using crossman premier hollow points 14.3 gr pellets. It took only 10 pellets for site in. The went out to 35 yards shot a shoot group of 5 and got 1/2 inch shot group. Then to 50 yards did a one dot hold over and got the same results. Totally satisfied with results and factory settings of the gun. The gun is almost silent. I shot a total of 20 pellets with 2400 psi left in the tank. I use the hill mk4 pump to pump to 3000 psi with no problems. I'm only 135 pounds it is very easy to do! The trigger was smooth to operate with no adjustments needed! I also have the gamo urban which is a great gun and is even more quiet the maurader and the bolt is much smoother to use, but the Maurader isn't broken in yet! I also have the maurader.25 first gen which is a great gun for long shots. No need to spend more!
Things I would have changed: Nothing as far as I'm concerned! I own a blue berry farm and I have a pest problem. I've taken out over 100 tree rats and rabbits than I can count. It's hard to have enough 25 cal pellets on hand at one time so I got the 22 cal for the easy of going to Walmart to buy pellets. I use the guns daily on the farm so that was a big factor for me. The synthetic stock is lighter than the wooden stock on the 25 m-rod. You could spend more on better guns, but the two M-Rods and the Gamo urban work well for pest control on the farm.
What others should know: These guns are not toys. They are very powerful. Always know your back stop! Practice using the safety between shots. The 22 cal gamo urban will do through and through head shoots on tree rats at 50 yards! The M-Rod in .25 almost takes squirrels and rabbits heads off at 75 and 100 yards, meaning that pellet is still traveling fast enough to be found in the the canes of the blueberry bushes that I find later when pruning! Benjamine hit it on the nail with the maurader! Pyramydair will be my only airgun supplier for life. You guys are the best! And a great thank you from the Kenerson Berry Farm! These airguns are a necessary tool for us on the farm!

Do compressors have dry filters or desiccant? Just wondering how I'm suppose to keep my internals for my pcp dry from corrosion.
I am quite surprised to see that on 6-11-17 the price for the .177 is a whopping $70 more than the .22 and $40 more than the .25 caliber. Why is this Pyramid Air? Seems to go against convention.
Never mind. I see the sale on the larger calibers. Never mind. Sale on only the larger calibers.
Do these new marauders in .25 cal come with built in regulators ? Can a moderator/silencer be attached to marauders?
I own a 25 Cal and I would not say its quiet, its not even close to a silenced gun of the same caliber.
1) No, they do not have a built in regulator. 2) No. Plus there is no reason too, the marauder is very quite, even in .25 caliber.
To fill your PCP gun:
1.Pick a source of air shown at right
2.If an adapter is needed, one will be shown
3.Add both to your cart to get hooked up
