10-shot repeater with auto-indexing feature (.25 cal is an 8-shot repeater)
Uses compressed air: 2,000 to 3,000 psi (make adjustments as shown in the owner's manual)
Can be adjusted for different velocities
Internal shroud makes this a VERY quiet gun
Choked barrel delivers superior accuracy
2-stage adjustable match trigger...and the trigger is metal!
Raised aluminum breech for easier loading of circular magazine
11mm dovetail (does not come with sights)
Ambidextrous synthetic stock with vertically adjustable comb (almost a full pound lighter than the wood-stocked rifle!)
Reversible bolt -- switch from right to left side (with our special service)
Built-in air pressure gauge (manometer)
215cc air reservoir
Air reservoir ends with a male quick-disconnect Foster fitting for fast refills (requires a female Foster quick-disconnect adapter to fill from a scuba tank or hand pump)
Includes one magazine, sling swivel studs & degassing tool
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 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 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: Gun is new from box and shoots superb. Adjusted little just because I could without chrono can't tell difference gun still very accurate. I had owned the .22 big difference in power and accuracy. Seemed to love hunter
extreme pellets. Shot count is higher than had expected on factory settings. Things I would have changed:Ability to use shorter scope rings and single shot tray What others should know: Had ordered gun after noon on Saturday, shipped Monday, received before noon on Tuesday. Somebody at pa needs pat on back.
Things I liked:Love my new Synrod. Coming from a Discovery, I appreciate the magazine (10 shots in .177), the higher air capacity and the built-in noise suppression - not to mention the accuracy! The ability to tune the gun without swapping parts or taking the gun apart (other than removing stock) is also a real plus. Things I would have changed:Inclusion of a single shot tray would have been a nice touch. Accuracy of fill gauge is questionable - at least compared to my tank gauge - it reads somewhere around 100psi high. What others should know:Don't think you HAVE to fill this gun to 3000psi. I was initially under that impression, but that's wrong. The gun can be adjusted/tuned to work anywhere from 2000 to 3000psi. This was important to me because I already had a SCUBA fill setup and the cost for 4500psi tanks is rather high.
Okay, I've seen conflicting answers to this question and does anybody know for sure the answer to this question?... The gauge on my Hill MK3 pump reads much different than the gauge on my marauder. By the time the gauge on on the pump reads 2700 psi, the gauge on my gun is already at 3000 psi. I need to know which one is correct. You would think that the pump would read a little higher than the gun because you are adding a little more pressure on the action of the pump itself, but it looks like that is not the case. Now, I can also see the gauge on the Marauder reading a little higher than it actually is as a safety feature that they do so that some "not so smart people" won't get hurt and sue the company. Do others have an issue with the gauge on the gun reading high, or should I not trust the gauge on the pump?
erika from USA:
You want to go by the gauge on the gun, not on the pump
Wolfy from USA asked:
Can someone tell me if .22 cal Predator Metalmags will fit in the .22 cal Marauder's magazine?
holl0918 from USA:
nope they are to long
patricia spriggs from USA asked:
What would be a better gun for snipi g a benjamin marauder or the hatsan galatian qe. I like a heavy gun and it to be quiet and accurate.
Dan the Man from USA:
In .25 caliber, it's a tough contest between the two. For .177 and .22 caliber, get the Galation QE.
