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!
Things I liked: The weight... compared to the wooden stock .25 cal, the synthetic stock is much lighter and easier to handle.
Things I would have changed: I would make the bolt action a little smoother... it's not bad, but i think it could be smoother... i would be happy if they gave it the same bolt action as the bulldog.
What others should know: likes JSB exact king heavy Pellets, Benjamin pellets and Crosman pellets. this rifle is a joy to shoot... takes rabbits, birds, squirrels with no issues. farthest I've shot is 50 yards.
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.

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:
