Things I liked: Lots of 'Smack' in .25. For punching pests it's great if you only plan to shoot a dozen shots. If all you are rating is bang for the buck it's still really a great value. Not noisy. Not terribly quiet, but better than I had expected. Very tolerable. You won't be able to hide the sound of that pellet meeting something hard, though.
Things I would have changed: Stock is ugly. That's the single factor that caused me to wait so long to buy it. It is really ugly. Trigger needs improvement. It isn't well shaped, sharp edges, excessively long 1st stage, the let-off is not particularly crisp, and it's too heavy out of the box. My P-Rod's trigger is better. I don't like the safety in the trigger guard, but I'm glad it has one. It's an Air pig. It really needs a regulator and I hear the new model will have one. Wait for it and pay the extra. Don't buy this in .25 if you don't have a compressor or live next to the dive shop.
What others should know: Overall, I can't understand the ratings on this gun being so high. One would think it is comparable to the European guns by just looking at the ratings. It's not! I would expect to have little to quibble about with these numbers. Try an Air Arms, FX, Daystate or ..... I know they aren't price comparable. But looking at the rating would indicate they are the same quality. Truth is, you get more quality when you pay for it. This gun is a nice blunt instrument. Better than many other blunt instruments, but not a great gun like some of the Europeans, which have nearly the same ratings. Benjamin pellets (every one, not just some) corkscrew but are fine at 30 yards on pests. JSB Heavy are most stable and accurate at 80 yards so far but long range trajectory suffers from the weight. Videos are one thing, but seeing and hearing these pellets smash into things is really something to behold. I'm glad I bought the Air Venturi compressor. Never needed it with my other PCP's. Used scuba tanks
Things I liked: Everything
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This rifle is awesome. It is the best shooting rifle I have ever fired. I mounted a CenterPoint 6x20x50mm scope on it and had it zeroed in 7 shots. It will put pellets in the same hole repetitively at 50 feet, and likely 50 yards as well but haven't been able to try it due to adverse weather. The trigger is 2 lb. pull right out of the box with very little take up and a crisp, with no drag or creep, break. I let a friend shoot it and he said he wasn't going to give it back. I can't say enough about this rifle. Being a .25 cal. it hits like a truck. Due to weather conditions I haven't had a chance to zero it at 100 yards but should be able to soon. All in all I cannot say enough good about this awesome rifle. It is everything all the reviews say about it and more.
Things I liked: I have only shot out to around 40 yards but the accuracy is excellent. I have not done any "tuning" as I am getting over 40 shots from 3k to 2,500psi. Maybe later. I started with a break barrel springer and got mad that I couldn't master it. This PCP was a dream from first shot. I was thinking about waiting for the Umarex Gauntlet but it is new and the Marauder is well tested and has undergone revisions. I think it is a great deal for the money! Thanks to Pyramyd Air for the discount - it clinched the deal for me.
Things I would have changed: I bought an extra magazine and it is a little sticky, which can cause you to double load. You have to watch for that.
What others should know: I love the look and feel of wood and my Hatsan 95 is beautiful. I scratched it the first day and have since put several bad gouges in it from accidents. The synthetic stock on this Marauder seems indestructible and I am not afraid to use it aggressively. This is a shooter - and a damn good one!
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?
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.
Is this regulated? it say 32 shots per fill for the .22. but is it consistent pressure? And will the inconsistency affect accuracy?
1) No. 2) It is rather consistent. Here at Pyramyd Air, we do test services and zero-in services all the time. We have had many occasions where the marauder in .22 caliber shoots more than 32 shots (most time around 40-45 shots), and still have a good FPS and "knock-down" power. 3) Accuracy really is not affected, especially at shorter distances. But if you plan on trying to get a squirrel at a long distance with low air, expect drop in your pellet.
