Internal shroud makes this a VERY quiet gun
Choked barrel delivers superior accuracy
2-stage adjustable match trigger...and the trigger is metal!

11mm dovetail (does not come with sights)
Ambidextrous synthetic stock with vertically adjustable comb (almost a full pound lighter than the wood-stocked rifle!)

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. Simplified the breech design for assembly, service and to provide a more stable platform for larger scopes.
As the caliber increases, the gun becomes somewhat louder.

*The owner's manual does not show the correct weight and length for this rifle.
The Benjamin Marauder air rifle is one of the most popular precharged pneumatic guns made today. The wood-stocked version came out first, but this synthetic-stocked version kicks it up a notch with a vertically adjustable comb and a whole bunch of improvements!
Most PCPs require 2,900-3,000 psi air pressure. You can run it on high-pressure air from 2,000 to 3,000 psi by making the adjustments shown in the owner's manual.
Since this air rifle is a repeater, it's one of the best hunting rifles you'll find. Attach sling loops and a sturdy sling to the mounted sling swivel studs so you can easily carry the gun for hours while in the field.
Remember to mount a scope, as this air rifle doesn't come with open sights.
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 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 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:Very quiet and accurate. Things I would have changed:I had to return my gun because it leaked air. What others should know:Very good customer service from pyramid air for the return. Very stress free.
Things I liked:Super accurate, very quiet, easy to work with, hardy, easily the best PCP air rifle on the market. Things I would have changed:bolt takes some time to get used to, but works great. What others should know:Just a wonderful gun, i would recomend everyone to buy this rifle.

Giriraj from India asked:
Just want to know can .177 maraunder be modified to .25/30 caliber?
Jennifer from USA asked:
I have the Marauder .25 & I have two questions: Best pellets for raccoon elimination, and best way to clean the barrel? I see conflicting information about what product to use for barrel cleaning. Thanks!
Tyler from USA:
Your best pellet for hunting should be whatever pellet is most accurate for you on paper. Shot placement will matter far more than the head shape of the pellet.
As for cleaning, I prefer ballistol for my barrels. I use a pull through set up, you can make your own out of fishing line if you want. I run a few patches wet with the ballistol down my barrel and then dry patches until they come out clean. In the Marauder, you can either remove the shroud for cleaning by simply unscrewing it. I wouldn't recommend that so much because you can have a baffle fall out if the gun is at the right angle when the shroud comes off. The best way in my experience, is to insert a drinking straw into the muzzle end of the shroud, through the baffles and simply guide your pull through, through the straw. That way you don't risk damaging any of the baffles.
Dr Faraz from India asked:
Is a .177 cal sufficient to take down a rabbit ?
travis from USA:
yeah It can kill one but for anything bigger get the .22 or .25 version
