1) Other than the stock composition, how does the Marauder Synrod differ from the Field and Target? Can you specify the Synrod with the Centerpoint Spectrum 4-12x 44mm Scope instead of the 4-16x 40MM?
The FT model has a regulator. It can have a LW barrel. The scope rail is a weaver base.
I've ordered the regulated Marauder Field and Target in .177. I plan to use it for field target competition. I will be using the JSB 13.4 pellets and I expect that I will need to adjust the rifle's velocity. My goal is to get around 800 FPS. Is 800 FPS achievable? Is the velocity adjustment the same as for the unregulated Marauder? TIA
Message from Crosman: Robert The adjustment are not the same on the Field and Target guns as they are on the regular Marauders. The Field and Target guns are already adjusted down to get more shoots on the gun so we do not really recommend that you do more adjustment on the velocity. It can be done but we do not recommend it.
Yes. The velocity adjustment is the same.
What is the out-of-the-box velocity with .177, 13.4 grain JSB pellets?
Between 800-875 FPS.
Does anyone know if the Lothar barrel is choked??? I assumed it was because who in their right mind would leave it off, but then I remembered this is Crosman.
Yes. The LW barrel is choked.
How many fills from an 80cf 3000 psi tank with tank starting completely full and gun pre-charged?
I was wondering if their is any open sight that can be use for the Marauder FT?
Only if you had a front sight custom made. There are plenty of rear sight units that will fit.
Does the field and target version have the built in de-pinger?
I doubt it would because the regulator would prevent pinging.
For the .22 LW barrel, which pellet diameter is ideal? (5.50, 5.51, 5.52, 5.53, 5.54, etc)
The best pellet selection is a trial ande error process. You shoot different pellets until you find the best ones for your gun.
Is the field and target version of the .22 Marauder the exact same airgun as the non field and target .22 Marauder? Assuming both come with the LW barrel and picatinny rail. I know one comes with a scope and compressor but I'm not concerned with that. I'm interested in the gun itself. The store descriptions are different.
The FT has a longer tank. I assume this was to make up for the space the reg takes. The stock is also different as you can see. There is also a possibility the breech is different because I have a document showing new breech part #'s but unsure if they're for the FT or what. They list both Dove and Pict breeches in 177 & 22. I'd assume if it was not FT then .25 would have been listed as well. Check it out for yourself: https://tinyurl.com/ujuc7xc
The FT model is regulated. The non-FT model is not regulated. That is the difference.
What bipod set up works? Any special adapters needed?
Most bipods come with a swivel stud adapter. The marauder has a swivel stud on the forestock, The bipods will fit.
What scope works well with this rifle? Thanks
Reviews show the Centerpoint Spectrum FFP 4-12x 44mm is quite good.
Just wondering when the .22 cal w/ Lothar Walther barrel will be available? I saw the estimated in-stock date keep changing, from 12/19 to 12/26 and now is 12/28?
That is the last date provided to PA by Crosman, so hopefully it holds up for you.
Are the barrel on this model the same as on the ordinary Marauder?
Yes, unless you select the Lothar Walther Barrel option
Anyone knows if the regulator can be turn off and on ?
No, the regulator is always "on"
Does this model have a bigger airtube? I see it listed the same at 215 cc but its clearly longer. My guess is that its 215cc after taking into account the airspace taken up by the new moderator. That is a great thing and they should use the bigger tank on all of them. What do you guys think?
This was buggin me so I did some digging. If you look at this Crosman pdf: https://tinyurl.com/ujuc7xc You can see notes at the bottom they give alternate part #'s for changes, like the Dove vs Pict breeches. They also list tube reservoir options, which I'd assume based on the word reservoir it means the tank, plus reservoir is used to describe the tank in the normal parts list. The problem is the tank is not listed in this pdf but the shroud is. The shroud tube is a reservoir, and since it is in the picture I can only assume that's what they mean? It also only shows 7 baffles, no option of less. The PA specs say each gun is virtually the same length and weight, but PA specs are iffy. Then I took the photos of each gun (from the Crosman website) into photoshop and it does appear the tank is longer. So I think maybe Bob M had it right, some extra tank to compensate for the regulator. If so, then a ton of people will want that longer tank for existing guns.
It appears to me that the barrel shroud is what's different. My guess is since it makes less power they figured it doesn't need as much suppressor. I'd rather have the orig length and all 7 baffles so it's extra quiet. Each baffle adds ~.707", so I'm guessing it's missing three? Baffles (1764-060) were only $1.15ea when I bought them so I'd get extra to be sure, or if you get the gun first see what it has now. The normal length shroud (1763-005) was $20.82 in 2017. You buy these direct from Crosman and shipping was $4 flat rate when I ordered.
The cylinder is slightly longer. My guess is also the air volume remains 215cc and the slightly extra length is to account for the extra space the regulator occupies.
I believe it is the same cylinder. Just think the stock is different which is why it looks different from a standard one.
What are people seeing for chronograph velocities with .177 cal. 8.5 gr. and 10.5 gr. pellets; Marauder F & T?
I am get 885 fps with 10.5 grain pellets. EXTREMELY consistent (100+ shots within 10 fps)
Where is the Fortitude?
Will the regulator be fully adjustable or just on/off?
Neither, it is fixed inside of the cylinder. Pretty much any reg can be adjusted, but this one is not externally adjustable and it does not have an on/off switch
Does this need a trigger debouncer or pinger?
It shouldn't need a depinger because the regulator would prevent ping entirely. I don't know what a trigger debouncer is but if you meant hammer I seriously doubt it. So basically I'd plan on buying one but I guess wait and see if needs it?
I hear no ping on my F.T marauder (my none F.T. Gen 2 marauder reduced but noticeable ping). I have not even thought about adding a bouncer (and I have 2 sitting in a box).
Should have a depinger already from the factory.
I back ordered the Benjamin Marauder Field and Target on line. My question is does this modle come with the degasser tool ? In one review it stated that it was a necessary tool to have on hand.
If you don't want to buy the tool you can simply dry fire it if you really need to drain it. Or what I did was grind/cut flat the tip of an old #2 Phillips screwdriver, then simply force the valve open by hand. That's actually kinda hard so you can tap it with a hammer instead until you've vented enough psi to do by hand. Everyone should open the gun now an then to check for corrosion and lube it. Pumps especially dump a lot of water into the gun so they need more checking and lube imo.
It would only be necessary if you intended to modify or perform maintenance on the rifle. No, it did not come with it.
Can the bolt be moved to accomadate left handers? I don't see it as an "Add On" option when pre-ordering but it is listed as doable in the description
When the regulator breaks will the rifle still work as a non-regulated PCP?
If the regulator developed a leak, yes the rifle would still work but the consistency from shot to shot would be very unpredictable.
Can you use carbon fiber tanks(paintball) to fill this marauder? I'm ready to step into PCP and want this to be my first. I have 68/4500 and a 45/4500 hpa tanks that need to get rehydro.
PB valves are usually set at 800psi. you would need to change the valve. PA has one for your tank
Those tanks might work, but you need to make sure they can put out enough air to fill the gun. Most paintball tanks are regulated down to a relatively low output pressure, you'll want a regulated output pressure of around 3000 psi. Pyramyd does sell a regulator you can use if yours are set lower.
Made in USA?
assembled in usa from components that are sourced outside the usa
I believe so
Will the new Marauder Field and Target be available.25 cal? If so when?
It may be available through the custom shop at Crosman.
Great review on a great looking FT gun. Will this be available in .177? I prefer that caliber for FT.
Yup, just click on .177 to pre-order instead of the .22
Does this gun come with lw barrel? I heard it did.
Yes, you can now get this at PyramydAir with the LW barrel.
No, the LW barrel is an option available through the custom shop only.
Will a synthetic stock version be available when it's released?
Not that I have seen or heard of
Can you put a moderator on this air rifle ?
Yes..., but both the .177 and .22 FT are both extremely quite without one.
An additional moderator? It is already shrouded and very quiet
Will the new barrels fit the older Marauders, as a retrofit?
They should, but you'd need to ask Crosman to get a definitive answer
Is there or will there be a synthetic stock version?
Not that we have heard about
What is the foot-pounds of energy when the rifle is in the regulated mode? Is the regulator adjustable or psi pressure?
My .177 FT is about 18.25 FPE with 10.5 grain pellets. The regulator is not externally adjustable.
Crosman has not released that information yet . the regulator is adjustable which changes the PSI the regulator uses you can also turn off the regulator and shoot it at full power for maximum FPE
Does this rifle come with a single shot tray like the other Marauders?
I would imagine so, we will inquire with Crosman to find out for sure.
The in-stock date of September 1 seems to be way out there. Is this a worst case date?
We hope so.
What is the regulated pressure?
In Tyler's video it fell off the regulator at 1500psi
Unsure at this time.
Will the new barrel fit the old Marauders?
I would think so, but you'd have to ask Crosman directly. Not even sure if they will make it available for stand alone purchase initially.
What is the regulated fpe in 22?
Crosman has yet to provide that info. But it will still be "tune-able" like a non-regged Marauder, so there will be some room for adjustment.
