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)

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:Fit and finish, adjustability Things I would have changed:Bolt action stiff, but that should get better with use. What others should know:This gun is very accurate out of the box .
Great gun to get started in the pcp gun world .
Things I liked:Very accurate out of the box shooting h&n barracudas 21.13 out to 58 yds 3/4 groups,40 yds 1/4 group shooting .22 caliber Things I would have changed:Easier velocity adjustment and step by step manual clean and adjustment and when and why to adjust What others should know:Do your homework before buying, my .22 was quite but for back yard friendly go with .177 did not like crosman premiers 14.5
Things I liked:I purchased the Ultimate Bundle from Pyramyd Air. All components have worked as advertised. The rifle is deadly accurate firing the JSB Match Exact King Diabolo pellet, maintaining 1 inch groups at 30 yards and 1.5 inch groups at 60 yards. The trigger is very smooth, especially when compared to my Benjamin Nitro Piston Trail. Starting with a 2900 PSI fill, point of impact is consistent through 14 shots with a slight drop in elevation on number 15. Filling this rifle with the bundled Benjamin hand pump, while a little time consuming, is not as bad as many report it to be. Especially after the initial fill is accomplished. Recommend some gym time for those of you having trouble with this aspect of the PCP experience. Things I would have changed:The bolt action is a little "crunchy" and not as precise as it could be. What others should know:This is my first PCP air rifle. It is everything I hoped it would be. While a little more work than a break barrel gun, it is definitely worth the effort for the gains made in power, accuracy, and effective range.

travis from USA asked:
how many shots per fill can the .22 get per fill set at the setting to accept 3000 psi
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!
travis from USA:
my marauder .25 likes the jsb diablo exact the best. it proves to be the most accurate and is heavy enough to humanly kill raccons it gives about 50 fpe
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.
