What type of scope rings do you need for .25 cal Marauder?
I am assuming the BP2564W is the Gen 2 Marauder? I am wondering when they began a second generation of this rifle?
The 2nd generation Marauder has been in production for 4-5 years.
I'm thinking of buying this rifle in .22, which are the best slugs with a crosman barrel?
For that information look at the airgun forums. Airgun Nation,Airgun Warriors, and Gateway to Airguns.
How can I be sure that I received the Lothar Walther Barrel. I do not see a difference in the model number on the rifle and I do not see any markings on the barrel.
The product label on the box end will have a "LW" in the product code.
Can the Marauder shoot slugs? If so can they be shot through the repeater or is it one at a time?
Yes ,The Marauder can shoot slugs. Some may fit in the mag. Lighter ones may fit.
Hi What is more noise cal.22 O cal. 25
What date did crosman stop using green mountain barrels on their 25 cal.?
My Benjamin Marauder is very low in noise already and has excess power for most pests. A match gun's 500 fps or even less (i.e., pistols & B guns) is more than adequate, experience shows. If you tried, about how many turns of whatever reduced power and noise even more than the factory-setting low?
Interested in setting the Benjamin to about 500 fps to get EXTREMELY quiet pest control in a quiet neighborhood. Yes, it's pretty quiet already, but want utter silence or so. What settings and results?
Even at 750 FPS the Marauder is very quiet, You could shoot at a higher power.much more effective.
What gauge can I use in old Benjamin air gun that normally use 20 gauge. Cant find 20 gauge anywhere
Can u used a car air compressor to put air on the rifle
You need a compressor that generates 3000 PSI. to fill an airgun.
What is the twist rate on a green mountain 25cal Benjamin Marauder barrel?
The Green mountain 25 cal barrel is no longer available.
Why dose my .22 only go up too 2000 psi ? I have had it for 6 years and never had the problem, Im still on point with my accuracy .
What is the inside diameters of a Maurader cylinder??
Question for BMOD .22 owners. What is the longest shot you have made with this rifle?
I have shot ketchup and hot sauce packet, bottle caps and even a thumb tack at 75ish yards.
Can anyone recommend a red dot scope for the Benjamin marauder .22 air rifle.
Is the Lothar Walther barrel any louder than the crosman barrel?
The different barrels have no effect on the firing noise.
What pellets are accurate in this gun. I have some that i have to use force to seat in the barrel. maurader .25
I understand Benjamin no longer uses green mountain barrels for 25 cal. Is that correct? Does anyone know where to get a GM .25 barrel or a .25 Lothar Walther barrel?
Yes that is correct. They make the barrels in house now and have for at least 6 months. The fact I haven't heard many complaints on the .25 in that time means they must be doing a pretty good job too. You can definitely get a LW barrel direct from LW, but you will need to machine it or have it machined to fit the gun
Does the .25 caliber still use the Green Mountain Barrel?
Can co2 be used instead of air
No you can't use CO2 instead of air.
What adapter should I buy to use it with a Hill MK4 pump? Is it included with the rifle? Thanks
Air Venturi Foster Female Quick-Disconnect... is what you will need
I have a Marauder for a couple years approximately 2500 shots. Today after several shots it started to malfunction. I repressureized to 2900 lbs but still it only puffs a small amount of air at each cycle. I reviewed the owners manual but there is not a troubleshooting section. What is my best next step?
Could be a few things. You sure there is not a pellet stuck in the barrel? If not, then I'd give Crosman or the PA tech department a call, they can help you trouble shoot.
I just received my .25 caliber Marauder and have not charged or fired it yet. Is it normal for the barrel to float inside the front barrel band? Mine is certainly not tight.
what pellet weight are you using to specify 900fps? (25 cal)
Can you shoot single pellets in the 25 caliber Maurader or do you have to use the magazine's
You can, with this single shot tray: Air Venturi Single-Shot Tray, Fits...
I have a 4500 psi carbon fiber ninja tank with a 3000 psi regulator on it. When I try and fill my MRod it. The gun will only fill to 2200 psi, any ideas why?
It's possible that the carbon fiber tank only has 2200 psi in it or the gauge on your Marauder is messed up. Unless your regulator is outputting really low. Any of those three are possible.
Is it okay to cock the Benjamin Marauder and leave it cocked until I'm ready to shoot during a hunt?
I do this every shot when on my weekly hunts for starlings. The shots are not affected by this as well.
Does anyone know where I can get a factory regulator for the .25 Maurader? I know that they have it installed on the ones in the Custom shope, but what if I want to put it on my own Maurauder?
I have not seen them available for sale through Crosman. Though I do believe there are a few places you can get one. A quick google search should return a few places.
I would like to mount an ATN X-Sight II 5-20x on a Benjamin Maurader .22. Anyone have a link to a proper adapter for this sight to the dovetail on the rifle that puts this sight in a good location for eye contact?
How do I release the air pressure from my Benjamin marauder. I just received my new gun from pyramid air and there was no tool to release the pressure?
You'll need to get one of these: Degassing Tool, Fits Benjamin Marauder... Or you can dry fire the gun down until empty, though that will take awhile.
Are the Marauder Pressure Tubes interchangeable between Gen l and Gen ll rifles?
What fps and fpe will the Benjamin marauder shoot with a 30 grain h & n pile-driver
My .22 cal, with original factory settings, @ 2700 psi shooting 33.956gr jsb match exact jumbo beast, averages 557 fps and 24fpe
Will h and n rabit magnum 2 work in the marauder clips
Is this the regulated version?
What is the correct weight and length of the Benjamin Marauder they say the manual gives the wrong info
Pyramyd lists wt as 8.2lbs and overall length as 42.8"
Pyramyd has correct specs published on the Specifications tab: Benjamin Marauder Air Rifle...
Anybody found a picatinny/weaver adjuster that clears the magazine? I have a NV scope I want to use but it does not attach with scope rings. It has to fit flush on a rail system.
Don't make the smae mistake I did, this rifle does not have a picatinny or weaver rail...it is a dovetail. Clear the mag is not the problem, but the size of your lens. Go with HI mount.
What type of sealer should I use on the quick disconnect fittings on the marauder
No sealer is needed. Quick disconnect comes with an o-ring inside that seals.
Is there a recommended picatinny or weaver rail where the holes and size line up properly? I'd like to add a red dot.
Good thing about the Marauder is you don't really need an extra rail. The marauder has a dovetail, and Pyramyd Air offers many good Red-Dot scopes with dovetails. Hawke has a good one, Hawke Sport Optics Red Dot.... We used these at the NRA Show in Atlanta recently, and they preformed amazing. There really is no need to go out and buy an Aimpoint that's going to set you back $400. Spend $45 and get a great Hawke Red-Dot that will do the job at a major fraction of the cost.
How does the .25 do at 50, 75, and 100yds.
At 50 yards I can almost stack the pellets. At 75 yards the spread starts to show but the pattern is unbelievable. I sort through my pellets for long shots out on the farm for those pesky starlings. The furthest confirmed kill was at 116 yards. This gun still leaves me speechless with the accuracy. I use the .25 cal and honestly never regretted my purchase. 25 yards I have to aim at the feet, 50 yards is dead center and 80 yards I have to hold over 3 mil dots. 100 yards is for s***s and giggles.
As with any other Airgun, the farther the distance, the worse your grouping will be. At the annual Pyramyd Air Cup, I saw a few professionals use the Marauder at 50-75 yards and did well. Past that, you really need to consider the outside conditions, as your pellet will be greatly affected. Using a good quality pellet (PY-P-721) will greatly improve your grouping quality, especially at longer distances.
Using .22 cal and EXACT JUMBO HEAVY 18gr at 2600-2800 PSI is this powerful enough to humanely put down a large feral tom cat (est. 15 pounds)? Never used on anything bigger than rats and squirrels myself want to make sure I can cleanly dispatch first.
What's the difference between a marauder.25 gen2 2 years back and the new one.
It's still the same Gen2 mrod
Can you purchase the Marauder without the cheek riser? Does Benjamin still make that option version?
No, the only 2 options are this stock and synthetic. Both have cheek riser.
Can i pump this rifle by cheap hand pump...? That pump can pump cars
My 5 cents, I used a air pump for some time and it makes a old man or woman out of you quickly. The pumps are expensive and don't last very long unless very maintained. Once you get roughly 2,500 psi you need to almost put all your weight on the pump to squeeze a very little amount of air in your rifle. My poor wife weighs 120 lbs and she can't not fill the MRod.
No...car tires are 20-60 psi depending on vehicle.
You will need a high pressure pump made to reach at least 3000 psi. They cost 200 to 300 dollars.
What do I need to fill a Marauder from my scuba tank with a DIN valve not a K valve?
If you have a DIN Valve on the bottle, then you'll need this adapter: Benjamin Scuba Yoke, DIN Valve...
Could there be potential for a Marauder in a big bore caliber? I'm just curious, if there is then I belive it could be every successfull
30 & 35 cal would be nice...this guy said that it was in the conversation abt another big bore from benjiman..he did say crossman read our topics and things to improve there guns
Can pyramidair deliver benjamin marauder in philippines without hustle if ever i get one?
No. You can't import air rifles or scopes into the Philippines. I had to go to a gun shop in Manila to buy mine. Expect to pay over double the cost as the same rifle in the States.
Are there still issues with the .22 marauder barrels?
Haven't heard of any mass issues for a few years now
What is the minimum ring height choice for a 1" scope tube to clear the magazine?
Medium rings will work for scopes up to 44mm , for anything bigger go with high rings.
Can someone please tell me what is the exact outside diameter of the maintube?
The shrouded barrel is .877.
I've opted to go with a hand pump if i buy this rifle and not a scuba tank due to cost and the idea of a highly explosive item in my house. I'm curious about how many shots i can get from a .22 and .25 marauder before the pressure drops below 2,000 psi, How many pump will it take to pump this gun from 2,000 to 3,000 psi. Please respond with the shots counts of the .22 and .25 calibers separately as i am comparing the two!
On stock settings the .25 gets 16 shots and the .22 gets 32...
Is the new 2015 .25cal barrel made by Green Mountain or Crosman?
Whats the average fps in 22 jsb 18gr
Probably around 850-860 fps... That is just my educated guess so don't hold me to it.. ;)
Using a Hill MK4 hand pump, how many pumps does it take to fill from empty, and how many to top it back up after 16 shots?
I suggest that never go below 2000psi. From 3000 psi to 2000 psi there are 16 shoots. From 2000psi to 3000psi take like 50 to 60 pumps. It take like 10 pump to get the pump gauge to 2000 them 50 to 60 to reach 3000psi.
I have a .25 cal marauder. from empty to fill not exactly sure but have 16 shots about 50 pumps.
If I want to buy air rifle. Can you send it to indonesia
In this price what you will send .
This is just the rifle itself, no scope or sling. Comes with manual and one magazine.
will you send a scope ????????? and silencer
The MRod comes with a built shroud which greatly reduced the sound. The big noise this gun makes is the infamonous loud ping which can also be dampened with a depinger.
no silencers available. Pyramyd cannot ship scopes to Pakistan
Is this rifle set up where you can put a silencer on it?
there are additional LDC moderators available from other sources that can be installed on to the existing shroud.
The Marauder already has a "silencer" on it.
I have a marauder 25 caliber and I bought a oxygen bottle says your gorilla air and I can't get the air in the bottle it says 2600 psi and the rifle shows 1600 psi but it won't fill it
First off, if it's an oxygen bottle, you will want to discontinue using it for anything but oxygen. But you SHOULD NEVER fill a PCP airgun with oxygen. If you are in fact using high pressure air (breathing air, not oxygen) then either your tank gauge or rifle gauge is off.
Is there any way to find out the bore and groove diameter of the .25 Marauder?
You can "slug" your barrel. First, remove the barrel from the breech. Load a pellet into the breech, then using a wooden dowel thin enough to fit in the bore, push the pellet through the barrel until it comes out the muzzle end. Use a micrometer to measure the marks the lands and grooves have pressed into the pellet. The deeper "channel" type marks are the lands. Note these numbers down for future reference.
I purchased the marauder with the bundle and the rings came with the scope; they do however seem to wide to mount on the existing rail; do I need another rail or different rings; I paid 11.99 for the ones that should have worked; any answer would be appreciated
bundle includes extra rings, that should work. If you did not get them, you got shorted. Call Pyramyd Air and they will help.
Does the Maruader measure out the same pressure per shot or does it vary as the pressure in the tank varies?
Every pcp rifle vary when pressure goes under curtain psi. My rifle is under 2000psi so i refill it to 2900psi
hello please tell me which city available in pakistan????
hello any one ask me,which city availabile in pakistan???
is it legal to ship to uk.
If you have an fac you might be able to but if you don't no
Will my order arrive in Canada for this rifle ?
no, this rifle requires PAL in Canada so Pyramyd Air cannot ship it there.
what do you recommend, 22 or 177
I own the .25 cal for a couple of reasons. The wind doesn't take a great affect on pellet flight like the .177. I hunt starlings occasionally and my most common distance shot is 75 yards, I don't normally miss. The 22 cal would give you more shots per fill and can meet you in the middle on the weight. Anyone who says the .25 cal is inaccurate has never gave it a chance. All in all I would recommend the . 22 cal. Hope this info helps
.25 is much better. Like said, .22 gets effected by wind. Also if you're hunting small game and up, .25 takes down the game much more effectively.
.22 will outperform .25 caliber...just use heavier pellets, such as Rabbit magnum, 26 grains... .22 will give you flatter trajectory line than .25... The .25 caliber would be a good step up, if you could fire it, at higher velocity...1500 or 2000 FPS...than, it would make sense going to .25 and shooting the distances up to 300 yards...however, gun itself is not yet developed that far...if you go with .25 you're getting 900 FPS...you're lowering your velocity, and power down...the resistance of atmospheric pressure is much greater for .25 as well...instead, you're better of using heavier grains pellets in .22...your velocity is up to 1000 FPS... The distance wise .22 would be much better option...
.177 shoots flater and is more accurate.
Go with the .25 wind affects it far less and they put higher quality barrels in them
.22 is the middle caliber so it will be strong for more applications than .177 and not far from .25
You mention testing shows most accurate at 2600psi. How many shots at this level?
Your mileage may vary depending on pellet choice and distance you need be accurate at. Information like that isn't specific to every gun and shooter. You need to test you and your gun to get your own numbers. Me and my Mrod settle in at 2400 psi. I still charge to 3100 though because i try to get as many shots on a fill as possible. The difference in accuracy is small between 1000-3100 at 40yds is small in my experience.
Is the gun stock or do you want to tune it
With a 4-14x44mm scope, would I need medium or tall mounts?
medium. if you get tall you would need to angle the scope down, meaning shiming. you also have the chance to bend the scope, if you shim.
what is the best pellet for the .177?
You need to shoot several, but for me I have detuned my rifle and it loves the JSB Heavy (10.34). Can easily hit .68 paintballs at 40+ yards all day long (from a rest).
Can this outshoot my bt65 .25. What mods would make it more accurate
I am sure it can compete with your bt65, i get 8 shoots the size of your thumbnail at 50yrds and take birds out to a 100yrds with my .25 Marauder!
what is the best pellet for the .22?
I would strongly recommend, H & N Rabbit Magnum 26 grains...if you decide to go with this pellet, you have to sight in your gun to - 0.50"[email protected] yards, this will give you the perfect trajectory line of a pellet...every time you change from one pellet to a different one, it would be a good idea to sight in your gun for that pellet...gun itself is highly accurate...
That would depend on what you are looking to do with it. I would suggest the H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme for hunting. For general use I would suggest the H&N Field Target Trophy or JSB Diabalo Exact Heavy.
What rings allow Hawke scope to be mounted where turrets clear the clip ? Using Burris "high" and clearence isn't there. Cant get the eye relief I want.
We would need more information (type of scope is the most important) to answer this question. Please call 888-262-4867. Thanks
Where is this gun made ?
where benjamin or crosman is.
Big discrepency between Air Force pump gauge and Maurader guage.....pump says 2600psi and gun guage is in red (over 3000). Asked this question on chat without answer and called Benjamin and they didn't know. Question: shooting a 14.3 grain pellet(Premier) at 2600pse, what should I chonograph velocity wise??
A discrepancy is typical. The velocity will depend largely on your settings. Generally we see fresh out of the box Marauders running about 900-925 fps with 14.3 grain pellets.
i just got my marauder and the bolt is only functioning about halfway back before being stopped, not allowing the magazine to be put in. There is no air in the gun right now. Is this normal?
If you cannot insert your magazine, the barrel is not seated wright... You can correct this, by loosening two small set screws, at the top of the breach...move your barrel slightly forward, insert the magazine, and then push the barrel back until it touches the magazine...than, tighten the two set screws...your barrel is protruding to much out of the breach, and it's blocking magazine to be seated wright...
Pull back harder on the bolt, you should hear a 2nd "click"
Can my 14yr old son pump this gun with the hand pump?
Or if the desired fill pressure is low. I only weigh 150lbs but I have no difficulties filling mine up to 2500 psi
If he weights 180 lbs or more, he has a chance.
I have a high pressure argon cylinder to fill this from. What sort of fittings will it take to use this fill source?
I wouldn't recommend using argon. High pressure air or nitrogen work best.
What is the factoy setting for the hammer spring and hammer stroke? Once the hammer is bottomed out how many turns to get back to the factory setting?
That would be a question better addressed by Crosman, 1-800-724-7486
My new .25 Marauder II is everything they said it would be and then some. One issue though. The hand pump and rifle gauge do not jive with each other. 3000psi on the pump is 3300 psi on the gun. Which should I trust? Dan
Mine does the same thing trust the gun always but mine says 3000 on the pump the gun says 2600
trust the gun, it is more accurate. the pump measured\spressure in the hose, wich is going to be more than the gun's larger tube.
my marauder leaks air is there a fix for this,or do i need to send it back.
pyramyd air is a certified Crosman repair center. Give them a call.
Depends on how long you have owned it. If more than 30 days, but still within warranty period, contact the manufacturer for service. If less than 30 days contact Pyramyd Air for return information. If out of warranty, I would take it to a qualified service center to have repaired.
wich bipods fits this rifle
can you use co2 in the marauder
No, use compressed air only. If you want a dual powerplant then get a Benjamin Discovery.
What can i hunt with benjamin marauder 25
Small game, such as squirrel, rabbit, raccoon, opossum, groundhog (woodchuck), skunk, fox, mink etc. Never shoot at any animal at distances greater than you can consistently shoot 5 out of 5 shots in a one inch group.
what meterial is the cheekpiece? plastic or wood.
At what pressure should I keep a 0.25 marauder at when im storing it?
I've had mine for several years. I've shot it down to 500 psi to chrony various pellets and then put it back in the case. Sometimes I haven't touched the rifle for several months with that chsrge. No problems after several years of doing that. I would NEVER leave it empty.
I'm going to answer a question with a question I keep mine at 2000 or a hair less than 2000 but since I got it in the mail It has yet to sit for more than 2 days at a time without being shot is that ok or not
I would say about 1500 psi.
What is a good mid.-level pcp riifle
What is the LOP ( length of pull) for this gun? That is, what is the distance from the trigger to the shoulder/(butt pad). Mine is 12.5" and have found that for me, optimal accuracy is never achieved at any LOP over 13". Trimming the wooden stock appears not to be an option, as the adjustable comb goes too far back and the result would be rather ugly to say the least.
Lop is probably closer to the 13 and 1/2 mark
Is the wood stock the only change versus the synthetic stock Marauder that is already available? Do they have the same improved baffles and 15% improved speed? Or will there be another upgraded synthetic stock 2014 Marauder coming?
Yes, this is the new 2014 model identical (as far as specs go) to synthetic version, except for the weight. Here they are: New Mrods compared side by side.
Why is there such a huge price difference between this gun and the Air Arms S510 Thumbhole PCP Air Rifle? Which is better and why?
The marauder is currently, the best pcp air rifle on the market... The most important reason for that is, simplicity of a design...less movable parts means, less breaking...this is AK-47 of the air gun industry... It's very simple, and it always works...and it's easy to customize it...marauder is also TDR...take down rifle, it can be separated into two pieces, by removing only one bolt, at the bottom of the stock...
I've had mine about a month I think I shot it stock then thought I wanted to up grade it pulled the whole thing apart put it all back together the only thing I didn't pull apart was the air cylinder these are simple simple guns to work on let me tell you needless to say I only oiled it up real good not to much though set the hammer preload to 6 turns clockwise and hammer stroke 12 turns counter clockwise and metering screw to 5.5 turns out it shoots like a dream now
features and quality. The Marauder is a great entry level PCP rifle, that may require some upgrades to make it really good mechanically. Material wise it will not be as good. The AAS510 has both out of the box and should not require extra upgrades/$$ to be a really good rifle. Like a Kitchen Aid appliance vs a General Electric......
i could get into details and specs but generly speaking the Marauder is more powerful and is cheaper.
