Things I liked:The MAR177 fits well on my Yankee Hill lower. I had already made some mods to the Yankee Hill lower (buttstock and trigger) so it was nice to be able to take advantage of those changes. Removed the iron sights and replaced with a 4X combat scope - Shooting indoors on a 10M range this combination has proved extremely accurate. The MAR177 upper is a well made, expensive piece of machinery. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to stay on top of their AR skills.
Things I would have changed:A friendlier price point.
Things I liked:Compatible with my Rock River Arms LAR-15 NM A4. One thing I have do do differently from the real upper is that the trigger mechanism's hammer has to be pushed down and locked in place when mounting or dismounting this MAR177. Unlike many air guns, there is no need for a separate dry firing mechanism. Documentation states that one way to remove air from the tank is by firing repeatedly, without loading any pellets. It's very accurate. With a competent shooter, and if not constrained by the 4.5 lb. service rifle trigger pull minimum, this could be competitive even in a match air rifle competition (may not win, but at least be competitive). The capabilities allow me to practice far more often than if I had to plan a trip to the range.
Things I would have changed:The price should've been lower, although I understand the reasons behind the pricing: the limited market on one hand, and the limited buyer choices on the other. It's not a "cheap" item and I've had shooters look at it up close and remark on its quality. It has already saved me several expensive trips to the range.
What others should know:I bought a Hill Pump and it took only 145 pumps to fill the tank from empty to full. I also had to get an adapter for the pump. Subsequent topping off only takes about 50 pumps from the Hill pump. I briefly tried non-toxic, high quality (supposedly) pellets for indoor use but the results were abysmal. I switched to RWS Meisterkugeln 8.2 grains and got vastly improved groupings, but I now practice outdoors.
Things I liked:Incredible accuracy out of the box.
Things I would have changed:The rear sight is very poor for a target rifle. It is unstable and not repeatable. The zero changes when going from center hold to 6 o'clock and back. I would suggest a better quality rear sight base with announced minute of angle description and repeatability, as well as a defined aperture size. For 10 meters, the flip sight is redundant. One size aperture would suffice, and a hooded one with changeable apertures would make this an awesome platform. The price is steep, but for indoor, foul weather practice for high power rifle shooting, it is arguably the best platform going. Wish Crosman would put an air gun lower on it.
