  • Lori from USA asked:

    SynRod experts, Can I adjust the trigger without degassing the gun ?? Gen 2 Marauder .22cal LW barrel

    • Mark from USA:

      The trigger can be adjusted at any time. Make very small adjustments. 1/8 of a turn on a single screw. Then test fire to determine what changes have occurred.

  • Steve from USA asked:

    Which is quieter - a .22 Synthetic Marauder or a .22 Hatsan Flash QE?

    • Mark from USA:

      The Marauder is more quiet out of the box. It has a baffle system in the shroud. The Hatsan Flash does not.

  • tyree from USA asked:

    What is needed to increase my factory 16 shots per tank fill to maximum shots per tank fill on my Benjamin marauder .25 cal

    • Christopher from USA asked:

      Is the BP2264LS with the picaninny rail and Walther barrel marked on the reciever as BP2264LS?

      • stephen from Canada asked:

        I have to buy mine in Canada as it can't be shipped to me. I can get one here in Canada but the baffles will be removed. ,will this affect the accuracy?

        • stephen from Canada:

          thanks Tyler

        • Tyler from USA:

          No. Removing the baffles should have no impact on performance, only noise

      • LUIS ENRIQUE from USA asked:

        GOOD DAY, YOU CAN SELL THE BARREL OF LOTHAR WALTHER ONLY, I HAVE A SYNTHETIC MARAUDER CALIBER .22, I WOULD LIKE TO BUY ONLY THE BARREL, GREETINGS.

        • Tyler from USA:

          Pyramyd Air does not currently list the barrels, you might be able to get one from Crosman directly.

      • Mark from USA asked:

        Is there an air pressure regulator so that the shot speed is constant? if there is no regulator, how consistant is the gun w the fps? and will a 14 gr .22 pellet break the sound barrier?

        • Tyler from USA:

          This version of the Marauder is not regulated. While you can use the various adjustments to get the most consistency from your rifle, typically they will produce 15-20 shots in the sweet spot with extreme spreads around 25-30 fps. At least in my experience. In .22, out of the box, they don't break the speed of sound with 14 grain pellets. Certainly can if you cranked one up though, but I wouldn't recommend it

      • Cory from USA asked:

        What comes in the package when you order just the marauder itself? Preferably the .25 cal

        • Tyler from USA:

          One mag and instructions, along with the rifle of course

      • reggie from USA asked:

        What is the largest pellet my marauder clip can handle i have a .22 cal

        • Garrett from USA asked:

          How hard is it to pump this to 3,000 psi and to top it off after shooting

          • brian from USA:

            I use the Benjamin pump and I would just like to throw it out there that I weigh 175 and have zero problems pumping this from zero to 3,000 psi. Its more about technique than strength. You are suppose to use your body weigh to pump once it starts getting tough.

          • Todd from USA:

            I have the chinese copy of the Air Ventri G6 (probably not a copy since I'd bet that's where AV gets theirs). 0-3000psi=270 pumps. 2000-3000 90=pumps. 2200-3000=70 pumps. Pumping is not easy, when up around 2500 or so my body weight of about 185 cannot compress the pump the last bit where it's actually putting that air into the gun. So about half way down the stoke I have to lock my arms and take my body weight off my feet to literally fall on it to get it to fully pump. So imo if you use the gun to shoot a pest here and there then a hand pump is ok. If you plan on shooting targets or misc plinking you will not like it. I also suggest getting the hammer debouncer because without it the gun is louder and wastes a lot of air. A 3000psi scuba tank is not good enough since the gun cannot be fully charged even once with it. You really need a 4500 tank which are expensive and often hard to find a place that can fill them. An elect pump is sweet but expensive and you're tied to electricity. Ideally I'd want the elect and a 4500 tank so I could charge it myself and take it with in the field. Pump, tank, gun and accessories would then be up past $2000...

          • Allen from USA:

            For me or you? LOL. With an MK4 it took me about 300+ on an empty tube. And about half of that from 2000psi back up to 3000psi. I simply did that as a test. I actually use a compressor and SCBA for filling and the pump as a backup.

        • Allen from USA asked:

          Are the Marauder Pressure Tubes interchangeable between Gen l and Gen ll rifles?

          • Todd from USA:

            The part #'s are different so my guess is something is different. Maybe the change is not important, maybe it is. If you look at the gen 2 guns parts list you can see the old #'s start with 1763 and new ones 1764. Parts lists are on Crosmans website, lower left of main page "owners manuals".

        • J.R. from USA asked:

          Other than green mountain! Who makes a .25 barrel's for the marauder gen 2

          • J.R. from USA asked:

            What company make after market .25 barrel's for the marauder gen 2

            • G from USA asked:

              Who makes the barell for the .25?

              • Tyler from USA:

                Green Mountain

            • Garrett from USA asked:

              What would the maxium range for hunting squirrels with the .177

              • John from USA:

                50-60 yards is a good shot, it would be based on how accurate you are able to shoot a certain grain pellet. Consider loss of fps and gravity as the distance increases. Get a chronograph. Woodys World.

              • John from USA:

                I would say 50 yards, plus your ability to shoot accurately at that distance with pellet grainage weight in account. 50 yards/150 feet is a pretty good shot to make. Woodys World.

              • Todd from USA:

                Max range it can kill and max range you're likely to hit it at all are different. 50yrds you're probably good as long as your gun is accurate. Pellet drop is a biggie too so if you don't know the targets range and by how much drop there is then you're just guessing. Also note 177 pellets that work and longer ranges will likely pass thru leaving a small hole and little damage, so they run off to die a lingering painfull death. The free program Chairgun will help a great deal on figuring power and trajectory. One good thing is the Marauder can shoot heavier 177 pellets well, unlike springers, but a 22 version is still better. There is still a set barrel twist rate on the gun which will only allow pellets up to a certain weight to be accurate, what that max weight is I don't know but fyi there is a limit.

              • James from USA:

                Accuracy and your ability to shoot accurate will determine that... However, a 15-16 grain pellet at around 900 fps the .177 will have a muzzle energy upwards of 28 fpe, at around 100 yards it will have close to 12 fpe, and at 200 yards it will have around 6 fpe at 250 yards it will have around 5 fpe which is plenty to kill a squirrel.. Some say that it takes 5 fpe to kill a rabbit with a head shot so I am sure it takes less than that to kill a squirrel.. Most of us can't shoot well enough to even hit a squirrel at 250 yards.. So if your rifle can shoot 15-16 grain pellets accurately up around 900 fps then I would say that if you can see the squirrel and hit it then the .177 will kill it.. I hope this answers your question..

            • Glenn from USA asked:

              Do compressors have dry filters or desiccant? Just wondering how I'm suppose to keep my internals for my pcp dry from corrosion.

              • Todd from USA:

                Some have desiccant where the pump draws air in but you might want to check the cost of those packs, and I have no idea if they do a good enough job. Optionally you could make one, preferably a much bigger one that gets more water and that you can heat to dry it out again. I made one like that for my shop compressor so it won't contaminate paint, or sand when blasting, and it works great. One of these days I'll make one for the gun pump....

              • James from USA:

                The area that would be most affected will be your storage tube, When you fire a PCP it generally will shoot out any moisture on the first few shots. The key may be to store your rifle after you have shot it and not to fill it up and then store it.. This would minimize the chances of any moisture being in the tube... (and not to move your rifle from the cold to warm etc where condensation may occur) Have some air in your tube and store the rifle in a dry room temp place or you can take all the air out and remove your tube and take the valve end or opposite end out and put a silica gel pack in and store it that way until you are ready to use it again (just make sure to remove the gel pack).. Most is common sense and it would not hurt to run a dry patch through barrel once in a while or you can put WD40 on a patch but remember to run dry patches to remove the WD40 prior to shooting..

            • Craig from USA asked:

              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.

              • Craig from USA:

                Never mind. I see the sale on the larger calibers. Never mind. Sale on only the larger calibers.

            • Mahmood from USA asked:

              Do these new marauders in .25 cal come with built in regulators ? Can a moderator/silencer be attached to marauders?

              • Todd from USA:

                They are already fairly quiet thanks to the oem shroud/suppressor (try shooting w/o and see) but it also has a lot to do with the power setting. A hammer debouncer is a must for quiet since the oem hammer bounces back and fires a second time and vents air which is both loud and a waste. There is a couple aftermarket shroud extensions (about 6"?) which basically double the oem suppression. So get that and the baffles from Crosman for about $1.15ea. You could also buy an extra end cap for the shroud and make whatever suppressor fit it, then you'd have a removable suppressor. They don't have a reg but you can get an aftermarket one.

              • Brian from USA:

                I own a 25 Cal and I would not say its quiet, its not even close to a silenced gun of the same caliber.

              • David from USA:

                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.

            • Arash from USA asked:

              Is this regulated? it say 32 shots per fill for the .22. but is it consistent pressure? And will the inconsistency affect accuracy?

              • David from USA:

                1) No. 2) It is rather consistent. Here at Pyramyd Air, we do test services and zero-in services all the time. We have had many occasions where the marauder in .22 caliber shoots more than 32 shots (most time around 40-45 shots), and still have a good FPS and "knock-down" power. 3) Accuracy really is not affected, especially at shorter distances. But if you plan on trying to get a squirrel at a long distance with low air, expect drop in your pellet.

            • John from USA asked:

              what is the factory velocity setting for the .25 cal.?

              • John from USA:

                The lightest .25 cal. grain pellets sold by Pyramyd air are the Predator GTO Dome at 16.54 grains and the H&N Field Target Trophy Dome at 20.06 grains. Personally I would try those two first, shooting them over a chronograph. I would use them as a starting point based on the fps of them. I have not ventured in to the PCP category, but that is what I would do.

              • John from USA:

                That 900 fps is for the lightest .25 cal. grain weights. Personally I would not use a pellet with a grain weight that would shoot less than 800 fps. Get a chronograph. Woodys World.

              • Stanley from USA:

                Specs say 900 fps.

            • francisco kleber from Brazil asked:

              Boa noite amigo voce puderia mim enformar o valor total de uma compra para o brasil (CEP 62250000) rifle benjamim marauder pcp estoque sintetico e uma bomba benjamim de mao cabe crosman

              • JamesW. from USA asked:

                Can someone please measure the vertical distance from the top of the receiver to the top of the magazine? Trying to figure out how high iron sights would have to be mounted to clear that.

                • John from USA:

                  You will also have to know what the height should be for the front barrel mounted sight. They would have to be applicable to each other in order to work. Centering both of them at the respective locations will be very important. I am quite sure Crosman had/has considered this.

                • Todd from USA:

                  The magazine is offset so at the center of the rail the mag is .220". I'd imagine if the lowest point of the sights cutout was .250" that you would not see the mag. That's all measured from the top of the rail. The rail is .100" tall fyi if measuring for a sight that clamps to it.

                • David from USA:

                  About .575 inches

              • Martin from USA asked:

                Can someone tell me how the synthetic stock feels to the hand?

                • Todd from USA:

                  It's somewhat rough where your hands grip it, and much less so where you do not. I'd say they did a pretty good job of making the surface texture ideal for general use. I wish I had something common to compare it to but I can't think of anything. It is a hard(ish) plastic btw, so it does not feel rubbery at all. It feels like the same plastic used on many other syn airguns. I don't have any complaints.

                • Luis from USA:

                  The synthetic stock shoulders like a dream.

              • Martin from USA asked:

                I'm looking to buy a gen 2 synrod . 22cal but I don't want to play barrel lotto and end up with a lemon. My question is what's the latest news on the .22 synrod barrels by crosman?

                • Todd from USA:

                  I too heard stories about a barrel issue they had but that was apparentlymany years ago and only for a short run. The story I heard was the guy rifling it was doing it wrong, way wrong, so just some guy screwing up. Just what I heard tho, so who knows. The Crosman/Benjamin break barrel models have poor barrels and they are a lotto, but the Mrod is known for it's accuracy. Crosman also sells all the parts and prices are reasonable, reasonable enough that I might buy a new barrel rather than return the gun and wait for its return. PA is good about returns but it's not their fault so I'd pester Crosman if by chance you had an issue.

                • Leslie from USA:

                  Today, 5/5/17, I posed the question to the Crosman C.S tech. He said that all Marauders are tested for accuracy upon assembly and have not had a .22 barrel issue in 7-8 years. So, I ordered one. Just make sure you don't get old stock.

              • alejandro from USA asked:

                Hi. Which rifle is better this in .25 or the .22 Gamo Coyote SE PCP Air Rifle I want to get one of this two if some one can help me. Thank you

                • Jerry from USA:

                  I have a Coyote and it is an absolutely awesome rifle. A Real tack driver up to 50 yards which is as far as I can get in my yard.

                • Keedy wee from USA:

                  It was with the.22cal barrel not.25cal and the 2nd gen has fixed the issue..

                • Stanley from USA:

                  You have a difficult decision ahead of you . All you can do is do the research( video reviews) and( customer reviews) should help you with this . I have read that the Marauder has had issues with the 25 caliber barrels whether or not it has been dealt with is unknown , but i would think so. I know they are coming out with a new Marauder this year and its suppose to be much better? I have a BSA Scorpion SE in .177 which basically a Gamo (same company) and the only thing about it is the fill probe it is not a foster fill like the Marauder which is much easier to deal with. I have seen great reviews on the Coyote so either one would be a solid choice .You might wait until the new Marauder comes out before making a final decision . Hope this helped.

              • Harvey from USA asked:

                I'm a lefty and I know the bolt can be switched, but I'm wondering how awkward it is to operate with the right handed bolt. (opening the bolt and closing with the left thumb maybe??)

                • Todd from USA:

                  The bolt cocks the hammer and it takes some force to do so, and with the scope in the way I imagine it would be too annoying to do with the left hand. It's not hard to take the gun apart and switch it.

                • David from USA:

                  You will not like it. You are much better off getting the bolt switched. Doing this will not affect the rifle performance what-so-ever.

              • Monty from USA asked:

                can i change .22 barrel with .25

                • Todd from USA:

                  I suppose it will bolt in but a 25 pellet needs more air so the 25 model has some design changes to make that happen. I forget the details but I think the valve and transfer tube are different so they flow more, maybe some other stuff? I'd be curious to see what would happen but no doubt a 25 barrel on a 22 gun would be less poweful than a 25 gun. Maybe you can buy the parts that are different and make it happen. If you went to a Marauder forum I can guarantee this question and all the answers will be there. If you simply want more knockdown power I'd consider the H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme pellets, or the Crow Magnum for closer ranges.

              • terry from USA asked:

                can the marauder be filled from a inert nitrogen gas cylinder as long as its psi is over 3000psi

                • Todd from USA:

                  Well, I woudn't use oxygen since there are steel parts in there, but normal dry nitrogen is ideal for most people. Some like to use helium for max velocity but it's very expensive. I imagine Crosman says "air only" because they don't want to have to answer a bunch of questions about what is and what is not ok. Plus the liability, so air only is easy and not going to get them sued. Ideally you want a 4500psi tank so you can get multiple 3kpsi fills from it.

                • tiffani from USA:

                  Nitrogen helium argon Oxygen are all compressed air HPA or N2 is fine for the gun!

                • Todd from USA:

                  Yes you can use Nitrogen which is actually better, and no doubt dry so better still.

                • Stanley from USA:

                  No if you read the manual it says ( compressed air only ) no other gases.

              • steve from USA asked:

                I have been told that the Gen2 synthetic stock 22 marauder has a green mountain barrel on it, or at least an upgraded barrel on it is there any truth to that statement ?

                • Joe Shooter from USA:

                  That is true. I do not know if they are using Green Mountain barrels, but the barrel they are using is a much improved, highly accurate barrel.

              • Judson from USA asked:

                does this have a bleeder valve on it plus im new to pcp i getting the hillman pump is this a good pump

                • Stanley from USA:

                  There is a degassing tool thats optional should it be over filled. Click on the link that says( SEE MANUAL) it can inform on anything you need to know . The Hill pump is a very good choice i have one to.

              • Bobby from USA asked:

                I'm worried, that I might have to return my mrod22, I'm reading a lot of post about bad barrels.

                • Matthew from USA:

                  If your concern is just from reading about bad barrels, it's been years since the issue was remedied. Also, try different pellets, and especially different head sizes. Mine groups Crosman premier hollow points around 1.5" at 25yds, but H&N FTT and Barracudas in 5.52 and 5.53 sizes are getting 1" groups at 50yds if I do my part.

                Will Pyramyd Air be offering this with the camo stock option?

                • James from USA:

                  I am sure that the Hydrographics store can put a camo on you stock, carbon fiber dip is really neat too.

                • David from USA:

                  Right now, no. The only camo stock we offer is for the Marauder Pistol (PY-2722-5346)

              • william from USA asked:

                Does the Gen1 and the Gen 2 Marauders in .25 cal. Both come with the Green Mountain barrel?

                • J.R. from USA:

                  The 1st gen is no longer made

                • Charles from USA:

                  Yes both 25 calibers have Green Mountain barrels

                • Charles from USA:

                  I believe the 25 caliber is the only one that comes with the Green Mountain Barrel

                • Charles from USA:

                  All the Benjamin Marauder with a synthetic stock are generation 2

                • Val from USA:

                  This is Gen2 marauder.

              • James from USA asked:

                I've seen in the specs how high fps it can be adjusted but somehow have missed how low fps it can be adjusted. What is the lowest it can go without any affect on accuracy.

                • Brian from USA:

                  Cannot be accessed easily? That couldn't be further from the truth. The hammer travel length and hammer spring preload can both be adjusted without any disassembly of the rifle whatsoever, just need a couple allen wrenches. The transfer port is also adjustable, though requires that the one screw holding the stock on is removed first.

                • Val from USA:

                  Please read the manual. Velocities will always depend on the weight of the pellet you use. Either way power adjustments in Marauder cannot be accessed easily by the end user (see the manual)

                • Matthew from USA:

                  I'm using a Harris bipod I had around and it works well with the sling attached

                  I purchased the benjamin bipod which allows me to attach a sling also.

              • alex from USA asked:

                How many accurate shots do you think you can get out of the .177 per fill?

                • James from USA:

                  Most unregulated PCP rifles will generally be 20/20 - 20 shots string with extreme spread of 20 fps. This can vary some but as a general rule expect 20/20, if you get more then that is great. You may be able to get more by adjusting the hammer spring load to a lower setting, but your velocities may drop and the pellets that shoot well may not shoot well at a different setting (or they could shoot better). If you set your goal of 20 accurate shots then you find the pellet that shoots the best and make minor adjustments to the hammer to tighten up the group.. You can set it to shoot 60-70 shots but the velocity will be low and the extreme spread will be well over 100 fps, you can regulate the rifle and the same holds true of many shots at low power or a few with good power, then the question remains does it shoot accurate..

                • Stanley from USA:

                  Specs say a max of 32 shots per fill ?

              • Jane from USA asked:

                • Charles from USA:

                  I believe they will take the 43 grain Eun Jin I hope I spelled that right

              • Kent from USA asked:

                I have a .22 synrod . I have not messed with it only have filled it to 2900 with out modification. I don't have a chrony what is the fps out of the box? w/14.3 gr. pellets? I shot it through a piece of marine 5/8ths plywood @ 20 yds.with 14.3 pellets seems to have a lot of power and its quiet. So is it ok to fill to 2900 without modification. thanks.

                • James from USA:

                  As with all PCP rifles will have a bell curve to the velocity and fpe, your highest velocity and fpe will generally occur around 2200 psi, 2900 psi will be slower and have less fpe than 2200 psi.. With a .22 you may find that the 18.1 grain will give you the best overall terminal performance.. Why does the rifle shoot faster at 2200 than at 2900 psi? because the pressure in your tank is holding the valve closed making it harder for the hammer to open the valve (thus it lets out less air), at around 2200 the pressure has less pressure on the valve (trying to keep it closed) and the hammer can open the valve further and for a longer period of time letting more air out to make your pellet go faster...

                • Justin from USA asked:

                  1. Can this gun shoot well with primier hollow point in .22? 2. What is a good hunting pellet for it in .22? 3. Not that I would but in as survival situation can this gun kill a smaller hog or coyote with a brain shot at close range? If so how far out would be maximum?

                  • Robert from USA:

                    In my Mrod .22 I have found the Polymag shorts to be very accurate and penetrate well with expansion as well. The premiers are a harder pellet but do shoot well in mine. Have seen videos of good sized hogs being dropped with head shots

                  • Charles from USA:

                    That all depends on you and your accuracy if you are very good and can make a head shot at 45 or 50 yards it will penetrate the skull and you will have a dead coyote. However I recommend the 25 caliber just for the extra punch and it gives you more options as far as possibility of body shots for many of your predators smaller Predators I might add not mountain lions LOL however I'm sure it 25 or 30 yards if I shot a mountain lion through the skull in his Temple he would go down but I don't recommend this plenty of bobcats coyotes other Predators like raccoons are available to kill and are killed regularly by the Benjamin Marauder 25

                    Advise Crosman customer service, whoever filled your order made the error. They will send the correct one. Or, certain type pellet designs may not be recommended, check with them on that also.

                  • Charles from USA:

                    My 25 caliber did not come with a degasser I had to buy it separately however you can empty your gun by dry firing it until it is under no pressure that's just the long way around but it will not hurt your rifle to dry fire it until it is empty of air

                  • Jesse from USA:

                  1" scopes. what height rings must I use to clear the magazine for 1" tubes, as low as possible?

                  • Charles from USA:

                    I have a leapers 8 by 32 by 56 and it requires High rings to mount the scope it all depends on the lens at the front of your scope on how high the Rings need to be

                  • John from USA:

                    I've got medium rings on mine with a 4-16x44 leapers. The magazine clears the scope base by about 1/4" and the front bell of the scope clears the barrel by a half inch. I could move the scope back and clear the magazine by about 1/2" if I wanted but it does not interfere with the magazine as it is.

                  • Derek from USA:

                • justin from USA asked:

                  Can this rifle be filled with a 35 gallon air compressor?

                  • Charles from USA:

                    I meant to say Scuba air tanks in the following answer you will see I mentioned air tanks I was talking about scuba tanks

                  • Charles from USA:

                    Not unless you're air compressor can you pump up a 3000 psi anything less like a normal air compressor is measured in hundreds of pounds a PCP airgun needs thousands of pounds that's why the compressors are so expensive and that's why people use air tanks or carbon fiber high pressure tanks for refilling or you can do it the old fashion way and buy a pump to be used by hand and they are very effective and you get a great workout at the same time you're filling your gun

                  • John from USA:

                    Triple No ... Methinks that hand pump is around $180 now

                  • Richard from USA:

                    No, it cannot be filled by a shop compressor but you can get a hand pump for about $150

                  • Stanley from USA:

                    No a regular air compressor does not make enough PSI to do the job . The cheapest I've seen these is 1300.00 dollars .

                • Martin from USA asked:

                  Still looking for an answer to the question below. But also does anybody know what pellet works best in the 25. I understand that pellets are kind of gun specific but it has a very good barrel that all the other Marauder .25 have. So hoping to find something like the JSB exact that works well?

                  • Charles from USA:

                    I like the jsb 25.39 grain pellet for distance and 50 yards or less I prefer the Benjamin 27.8 grain Donald pellet it may not be as heavy as some of the other pallets but it packs a wallop it is a Bone Crusher but past 50 yards accuracy is questionable and I recommend the jsb 25.39 grain for anything past 50 yards

                  • John from USA:

                    JSB Exact Kings at 25.39 grains are excellent in mine and Benjamin Domed are in second place.

                  • Reginald from USA:

                    The Predator Polymags seem to group very well.

                  • Austin from USA:

                    Unfortunately there in no ULTIMATE brand of pellet that works best but like val said, jsb and h&n's are high quality and consistent brands to choose from.

                  • Val from USA:

                    Yes, JSBs and H&N Baracudas should be good

                    And my answer before I said the Hatsan Has Broken Hatsan 125 had broken 6 scopes not sick scopes I don't know why but the edit button does not work when I try it and try to edit my answers so I have to make a follow-up answer to explain any mistakes

                  • Charles from USA:

                    I agree with the previous answer any scope of work you don't have the recoil problems of a springer or a other break barrel type pellet gun recoil does make a difference I have one pellet gun a Hatsan 125 which is broken sick scopes so it is my gun that I use with open sights and it's refreshing to have a gun with open sights anyway that was a 25 caliber Hatsan model 125 but my Benjamin 25 caliber has virtually no recoil and I've never had a problem and I put a leapers 8 by 32 by 56 scope on it and I would not invest that kind of money on a scope and less I knew it was going to survive the recoil which is Neil with the PCP

                  • Martin from USA:

                    Yes any scope will work. Of course. To get the best one you can afford. This rifle is worth it. You will not however have any difficulty with recoil. Ruining the scope. Like a high powered Springer air gun or a high powered rifle.

                • Martin from USA asked:

                  How much pressure should I leave in the rifle and how long can I leave it in there? Some people say it's no problem to leave the full charge in there? And also does anybody have any thoughts on what the best pressure to run for accuracy is on an untouched stock Marauder? Thanks!

                  • Charles from USA:

                    I leave my fully charged and it does not leak at all it might have to sit there for a month and if I leave it with 3000 psi it has 3000 psi when I pick it up to use it maybe I'm lucky and got a good one but I assume they are all meant to be that way and from what I've read you should keep at least a couple thousand pounds of pressure on or in the gun you'll find out when they are shipped to you they will have at least fifteen hundred pounds pressure or more when you receive your gun one time I had to send it back for repairs and I got it back with 2900 pounds

                  • Val from USA:

                    Yes, you can leave it charged. It's been shown that Mrods like 2900 PSI as their starting pressure. Read the blog series Tom Gaylord did on this rifle, linked right from this page...

                • Cham from USA asked:

                  Hi guys I just bought the rifle without a pump nor a tank.. I would think the rifle still shoots 900fps right?? I shot and pellet went 5 feet..?? Is that right? I was thinking it would go at least 50 to 75 yards without the tank/pump?? Please help!!

                  • Charles from USA:

                    I believe this question is pretty well answered already but you must realize that the air pressure is the propellant for your palate so no matter how you do it weather by hand pump or scuba pump excuse me scuba tank you must have enough pressure I prefer 3000 psi to start

                  • John from USA:

                    Well, I'll be dogged, thought I had heard it all ... sorry ... yeah, put some air in it first ... that's why they call 'em "airguns"

                  • Val from USA:

                    Cham, you need to charge the rifle with air. Without decent pressure in the tank (at least 2,000 PSI) it's not really usable.

                  • Martin from USA:

                    You absolutely need a tank or a pump to fill it for any velocity.

                  • Stanley from USA:

                    This rifle includes the tank which is built in , but you at least need a pump in order to fill the tank to propel the pellet. They usually ship with some air in the tank but not enough to shoot a pellet very far.Hope this helps?

                • Brock from USA asked:

                  .22 vs .25? I understand that the .25 has a much better barrel, but I am concerned about the noise level as I need a pretty quiet gun for where I do a lot of my shooting. Can anyone give me some idea of how much louder the .25 would be vs. the .22? Either caliber works for me. For reference, my Air Arms TX200 Mark III is too loud and my Umarex Fusion is fine. Thanks.

                    My neighbor was doing some yard work yesterday and I was on the other side of the fence from him. He could not see me.

He said,"ohhh, thanks for telling me, I had heard a few clinks like something hitting metal buy I didn't know what it was" ... he never heard the gun fire ... that was a .22. My wife snores 10 times louder that the report from this airgun.

                  • Martin from USA:

                    .25 shoots very quietly. I don't think you'd have a problem using it anywhere.

                    I don't see why not. From my experience, springs are ruined after being over stretched. If you use the magazine like it's meant to be, you should have no issues, whether you keep it loaded or not. But why not use it and empty that sucker out?!?!

                    There should be nothing in the barrel at all! ..however there *may* have been some left over coating inside the barrel from production, or to protect the metal until it was sold. Accuracy is generally on the shooter and your ability to zero, and fire the weapon properly. Use a gun sled and take the human factor out of it. If the round is still all over the paper at 25-35 yards (I have mine zeroed at 35 yards), try different pellets, and run a cleaning tool down the bore. Eliminate as many outside factors as possible and really try to be steady when shooting. There is no magic lube or grease that will make the gun be accurate. Best of luck sorting it!

                • Lloyd from USA asked:

                  I bought a new Sync Marauder in Dec of 14 and I fell in love shooting this except for one thing. I can't get it to group any closer than 2.5" groups @ 25yds. I'm not going claim to be a expert on this but Ive tried numerous pellet styles and weights, A new scope, and shoot off a gun rest. I checked every pellet for damage and haven't shoot in wind. The only thing I notice out of the ordinary is that the barrel sits higher in the hoop then in center, even putting an O-RIng between the barrel and the hoop to center it brings the shoot group down but still Erratic. I've also never touched the factory settings. Any thoughts on this?

                  • John from USA:

                    There is one more thing you can do. Marauder barrels are kinda like a lottery ticket, you may win and get a really nice barrel or you may loose and get one that is an exercise in frustration just trying to hit the broad side of a barn. The barrel is the heart of a gun so in order to get the best you may want to try an after-market barrel like the one made by Marmot Militia. I wanted to see what one would do on my .22 and the results were nothing short of spectacular. Mine is holding to less than a half inch at 60 yards with a 15.98 grain JSB ... I don't think you can ask for anything better from an airgun. It is a hammer forged barrel. I pushed a few pellets through the barrel with a dowel rod and it is wonderfully tight leaving lands and groove marks on the skirts and head all the way around. I accidently double loaded two pellets by mistake ... the barrel is so tight you can't fire it with a double load cause you can't close the bolt on it ... it shoots G-R-E-A-T!!!

                  • John from USA:

                    Do everything Bruno suggested and if it still wont group it may be time to start changing the factory settings. My .22 would not group using about 10 different pellets ... so in angst I started fooling around with the factory settings and now it shoots about 3/4" groups at 40 yards. Hammer Spring is set on 4, Stryker is on 9 and Velocity Meter Screw is on 3 ... works on mine and get 30 shots from a fill.

                    The barrel is intended to be free floating. Make sure nothing touches the shroud. It should be centered in the hoop. Also, be sure that nothing (fingers, gloves etc.) touches the shroud while shooting. Is the barrel clean inside? Try removing the shroud carefully, then see if it will hold a better group on target that way. Half an inch at 25 yards should be possible from a rest. If it works that way, check to see if there is a burr or some thing on one of the baffles that could be touching the pellet during its way out. Hope that helps.

                    how do you clean the barrel of the new generation .25 cal. marauder.

                    • Austin from USA:

                      Generally you should remove the shroud and baffles to ensure a complete cleaning if the rifle and as not to possibly damage the baffles when your cleaning it with a rod. Patches work pretty well for a general cleaning but a bore brush should only be used if there is major build up (not really possible with an air rifle though).

                    I am stuck between the marauder in .177 or the Hatsan AT 44 QE Long in .177. Which is better and why?

                    • Stanley from USA:

                      My opinon only , i have hatsan AT44 QE Long( the 22 caliber version ) the rifle is quieter than the m-rod and hits harder down range , and comes with two metal clips.It also has smooth as butter AIR ARMS TYPE side bolt and can't load two pellets at once. Beware this rifle is heavy so eat your wheaties. Read up on all videos and acticles you can find , thats what i did .Im not sorry i got the hatsan.Good luck.

                  • Steven from USA asked:

                    New owner of a .22 Marauder and first time air gun. I just got it yesterday and tried it for the first time last night. I got the Benjamin hand pump with it and have to say it was a struggle and a workout to even get to 2000 psi (reading on the pump and rifle gauge). It felt like I couldn't get any more air into the thing with all my weight on the hand pump. I tested it like this, and everything seemed fine. Just wondering what I'm doing wrong. It can't be that hard to fill it.

                    • Charles from USA:

                      Don't worry that is normal that hand pump is a workout even if your big heavy strong and in shape. But within a week or two you will be strong and used to pumping and bring it up to 2900 or 3000 psi without any difficulty but it's still a workout

                    • Fahir from USA:

                      If your gun is hard to pump, there's possibility, that you've got some grease sitting in the air filter, an air filter is seated at the other end of the fill probe...inside of the air tube, once the grease gets in there, it will start collecting dust particles from the incoming air, that's being pumped from the other side...just take it apart, and spray it really good with break parts cleaner, to clean it up... Another option is, to break your pump...as I broke mine, since I didn't know what was going on...I would also strongly suggest, that you use petroleum jelly, instead of grease...in order to put it back together...

                    • Robert from USA:

                      You shouldn't let it get much below 1800 -2000 psi before pumping. It takes ages from 0 psi. From 2000 - 3000 psi, it should take 60-90 pumps. If it is taking much more than that then you haven't sealed something tight enough, your technique is wrong or there is a problem with the equipment. If you don't hear air leak out when you pump, watch one of the YouTube clips that show you how to pump properly. Slow down and stop for a second at the top and bottom. Use you weight

                    • al from USA:

                      I'm probably a little heavier than either of you are just I have to throw it out there the heavier you are the easier for lighter guys just take a quick break when you get fatigued

                    • Steven from USA:

                      So I was able to use the hand pump to get it to 2600 psi, but it was a workout!

                  • Nate from USA asked:

                    Does anyone know why there is either a 1 or a 2 stamped on the conical part of each gen 2 marauder baffle? I'm wondering if the numbers mean they should be reinstalled in a particular order. And yes, they are pretty hard to see.

                    • Charles from USA:

                      On the new synthetic Marauder you have a spring and there are seven baffles. Remember to put them back in the same order the cone and or pointy and goes in first

                    • al from USA:

                      There should be five baffles and if I'm not mistaken yes they should go in exactly as they came out

                  • Thomas from USA asked:

                    I'm getting ready to purchase a Benjamin Marauder in .22 caliber and because of some physical limitations using the foot pump will not work for me. I'd like to set up with a HPA tank setup. I don't want to go with one of the really expensive carbon fiber wrapped tanks. Could anyone make suggestions as to exactly what I'll need. Thanks for all your help.

                    • Jeff from USA:

                      I got a used carbon fiber 4500psi tank still within its 15 year expiration date for 6 more years with a brand new hydro certification, all the fittings, hoses, and a gauge for about $200. It refills my marauder about 20-30 times per $5.00 fill. So much more air than an aluminum tank can supply and smaller in size. The gauge hose and fitting were new not used. The tank was also in amazing shape, it was a reserve fire department tank so it wasn't used much.

                    • Nate from USA:

                      An aluminum scuba tank (used is fine as long as the seller confirms it has been recently tested and checked) will fill your rife to just under 3000 psi. You will also need the removable valve/knob assembly that usually comes with the tank, but if not, can be found on Amazon. The last bit of equipment, and the most specialized is the scuba yoke DIN valve with the female foster fitting. Ninja paint ball sells them on Amazon with a decent built pressure gauge and a 24 inch stainless steel air hose with a quick connect foster fitting. It will set you back less than $200 total if you can find a good used scuba tank. Stay away from steel tanks due to the weight, even though they last way longer. Good luck!

                      I have a gen 2 in .25 caliber and it works fine on c02. It shoots 19.91 grain pellets at 540 ft/sec at 89 degrees with the default air tune. Point of impact at 10 yards is maybe .5-.75 inches lower.

                    • Val from USA:

                      techincally yes, but Crosman no longer recommends it (in this Gen2). Valve is optimized for air.

                    • John from USA:

                      Shooting my .22 yesterday (everything exactly the same as it came from the box ) I got shot groups measuring center to center .59"/ .83"/ .53" 1.0" and a ten shot string of .88" at 50 yards with (of all things) Premier Ultra Magnums. This gun is fussy on pellet selection ... the only things that came close to the Ultra Magnums were H&N Match 21.14g / H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme 19.09g / and JSB Match Diablo 18.13g. The JSB Match Diablo were all over the place averaging 1.50". Based strictly on my experience I would say that they may have fixed the problem ... however I am aware that many people have been greatly disappointed in the performance they have gotten out of their .22 rifles ... and I feel for them ... I really do!

                    • RifledDNA from USA:

                      People were also not tuning their striker tension and length in conjunction with velocity adjustments properly to optimize for the pellet trying to be used. Writing a review after 5 minutes with a gun with this level of adjustment isnt helpful to anybody.

                    • Ye from USA:

                      Mine .22 mrod shoots great very accurate with the jsb 18.13 grain. 50 yards is a piece of cake. Tried different pellet size and brand. My mrod hate jsb monsters 25.39 grain. Can't tell where it's hitting with those pellets tho.

                    • Old Gunny from USA:

                      My new synthecic .22 was tuned to 860fps and I'm getting perfect shots at 24ftlbs of energy. Dead on at 20 yard zero. almost perfect pellet on pellet. Averaging 35 shots per fill. NO complaints here...

                  • Wolfy from USA asked:

                    Okay, I've seen conflicting answers to this question and does anybody know for sure the answer to this question?... The gauge on my Hill MK3 pump reads much different than the gauge on my marauder. By the time the gauge on on the pump reads 2700 psi, the gauge on my gun is already at 3000 psi. I need to know which one is correct. You would think that the pump would read a little higher than the gun because you are adding a little more pressure on the action of the pump itself, but it looks like that is not the case. Now, I can also see the gauge on the Marauder reading a little higher than it actually is as a safety feature that they do so that some "not so smart people" won't get hurt and sue the company. Do others have an issue with the gauge on the gun reading high, or should I not trust the gauge on the pump?

                    • Old Gunny from USA:

                      you sure? I was told pump more accurate. Mine reads 200 mil bar but guns reads 3300psi...?!!!

                    • william from USA:

                      My .22 guage and pump guage were right on, but I sent the .22 back for a .25 and I have the same issue now, the pump reads 2700 but the .25 reads 3000. I'm going with the gun guage just to play it safe. How ever I believe it's the gun guage that's a little off, but I'm shooting amazing groups from the guns reading of 3000 down to 1800.

                    • Philip from USA:

                      Also, the compressed air from the pump is a higher temperature than ambient. That will also cause the gun pressure gauge to read higher at time of fill. Pressure is affected by temperature and you'll also see that by going out in the cold with your PCP. It will read a lower pressure once it cools off. Not to ramble on, but these gauges aren't the highest of quality and since they are small, they'll tend to differ in readings.

                    • Erika from U.S. Virgin Islands:

                      I will update this when I have the bottle in front of me but I got this cleaning oil at the gun shop it's both lube and cleaner just coat a few pellets like a mag in that shoot them through the gun then take a mag of dry pellets and shoot them through that way you don't have yo worry about the barrle oring falling out or having to lap the barrel for any significant time

                      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.

                    • Jeff from USA:

                      Best ammo by far for this gun IMO is H&N Barracuda Match (.22). That's if you want extremely stable long range accuracy with knock down power. Second choice would be the JSBs but they seem to only like some m-rods in .22. H&N Match like a huge majority of them.

                      I have about 50-60 airguns and I try to always put them away with some charge in them,and always keep there seals well oiled. My FX held it's charge for about a year,a Crossman pistol (a 114 I think) has held the same charge for about 15 years,and the absolute winner is a Sheridan Silver Streak has held the same charge for over twenty years,so I'm just passing along what the old timers told me...ALWAYS put them away with a charge,things might have changed,but it has always worked for me.

                    • Dan the Man from USA:

                      It's okay to leave it fully charged for a couple of weeks. For long term storage, I leave mine charged at 2,000 psi. You might lose a couple hundred psi over time, but nothing major.

                    Hey guys...this is the set up im thinking of getting...Benjamin Marauder PCP Air Rifle, Synthetic Stock....Air Venturi Scuba Tank, 80 cu ft, Aluminum, Deluxe Valve, 3,000 psi, Black...Air Venturi Scuba Tank Adapter & Hose Assembly, 1/8 BSPP Threads, Gauge , what do you guys think will this set up work and will I need any thing else ?? thanks ...

                    • chris from USA:

                      If you have a place to fill a carbon tank, go with it. A scuba tank is heavy and does not give many fills. You actually get more with a 90ci Carbon tank.

                    • Oscar from USA:

                      if you plan to go hunting you're better off getting the carbon fiber tank because its smaller litter comes with all the fittings and gives you more fills. it is $100.00 more but because of versatility and convenience it is worth it.

                      don't forget the female foster quick disconnect.air venturi does not come with one.

                      Have you used the PCP Hookup tab on the right? it will tell you if you got all the connectors!

                    I've had my second generation marauder for about two months now. I love it!!! I got the 27.8 grains Benjamin domes with it. I also go some H&N 31 grains that I will use to hunt with. But I want to try the JSB exact kings. Last I looked, Pyramyd air was out of the.25. Anyone know how I can get some.

                    • StridinSpider from USA:

                      You really need to use the same pellet you pop paper with for hunting. There can be a difference in the POI vs POA with different pellets. 27.8 practice could give you a miss with 31 in the field.

                    • Ye from USA:

                      If you need some just Google it (.25 pellets for sale) a bunch of websites comes up.

                    • Dan the Man from USA:

                      Put them on back order with Pyramyd if there out of stock. That way, once they come in, you'll have a better chance of getting them.

                  • Asif from Pakistan asked:

                    Can anybody tell us about the accuracy of the .22 version of the gun out to 70 yards with GAMO Pro Magnum 15.43g pellets. Any chrony data with the same pellets?

                    • Kelvin from USA:

                      Look "Marauder Brothers of the World" on Facebook. I think just a few days ago they were talking about this. Like the page that way you can stay in touch with those guys. They have shown me a lot about my marauder.

                  • Asif from Pakistan asked:

                    Hi, I am interested in buying the .22 version gun and want to know how much ft lb this gun is tuned for out of the box. Also if any one can tell me the max ft lb that the .22 version can be tuned for.

                    • Dan the Man from USA:

                      Out of the box, around 30 foot pounds. You should be able to get it up to 32.

                  • Robert from USA asked:

                    I had a problem with another PCP rifle Crosman made that leaked and they said it was ok for it to leak up to 300psi a day. Is it acceptable for these Marauders to leak?

                    • Ye from USA:

                      I owned 2 benjamin discovery and 3 marauders. One disco leak due to failure to take care but my marauders are great but the pressure do fluctuate due to temperature. The hotter it gets the higher it will increase, opposite if it exposed to the cold climate.

                    • Stick from USA:

                      I have a .22 cal. BM, about 6 mo. young, that does not seem to leak at all. I can leave it for 2 weeks, and still not detect the needle budge at all.

                    is it important to install regulator for Benjamin marauder ?

                    • Dan the Man from USA:

                      No, it works great out of the box.

                  • Valoren from USA asked:

                    I am interested in buying this gun but i have heard that .22 CAL has had accuracy issues and i was wondering if that is still true? Is the .25 CAL better than the .22 in terms or accuracy?

                    • Ye from USA:

                      I kind of agreed with austin, both my .22 shoots fine and very accurate to 50 yrds. One is the 1st n one is the synthetic 2nd gen. Both shoots great with the jsb 18.13 grain.

                    • william from USA:

                      I purchased a .22 in December of 2014 and couldn't get a grouping better than 5" @ 25yds... no matter what I did to that gun. Long story short it has been sent back and a .25 is on its way.

                    • austin from USA:

                      the new synthetic .22 is almost exclusively accurate with the h&n barracuda match, these pellets will give great accuracy and weigh in at 21.4 grains, wich is pretty heavy. so the answer to you question is no, they both have the same accuracy its just a matter of finding the right pellet

                    BENJAMIN MARAUDER. 22CAL. HOW MANY METERS IT CAN SHOOT CLEARLY WITH CHEAP PELLETS. I AM GOING TO BUY THIS RIFLE. I NEED KNOW THIS

                    • austin from USA:

                      with cheap pellets I would guess up to 50 YYARDS witch equates to however many metters

                  • Kelvin from USA asked:

                    I looking to buy a marauder. Which cal. gives me more bang for the buck. I'm gonna be using it to hunt squirrels and maybe wild hogs.

                    • Tim from USA:

                      I have killed a number of wild pigs with high powered rifles. Though there are some tube vids of people doing it with airguns, I don't think it is humane even with a 25 cal. You should not attempt it with anything less than a 243 Win! That is the minimum cal required in many states. A 308win or 270win class weapon is even better. A 22 cal Mrod doesn't even kill a squirrel instantly unless you get the shot just right; in the head or logitudinally/diagonally through vitals. I've killed dozens of squirrels with my 22 Mrod with several different pellet types, and they often run off with lung/heart shots, even neck shots. Not far, but they do run. Head longitudinal through whole squirrel drops them immediately. Diagonal works but they take 15 sec to stop moving. Straight through heart/lungs, and they will run but expire soon.

                    • austin from USA:

                      I would definitely go with the .25 and buy the package deal that comes with pyramid air, the .25 is not pellet fussy unlike the .22, and it also deals a heck of a lot more damage and it is more forgiving in terms of shot placement. but take into consideration that the .25 does not have as many shots per fill and uses a lot more air, but you can make hammer spring adjustments to fix that. if u do get the .22 I would not recommend hunting hogs, the shot placement would have to absolutely perfect and even with a perfect shot I would not kill the animal instantly

                  • Rashad from USA asked:

                    How many usable shots does the marauder (in .25) get off of a full fill?

                    • Dan the Man from USA:

                      24 target, 16 hunting.

                  • Travis from USA asked:

                    I am a greenhorn at this PCP stuff, I am the proud new owner of an .25 Marauder, I am wondering how much pressure can I leave the gun charged at? Say for example over a 2 day weekend of hunting is it ok to leave it charged to 1500 or maybe 2000 for overnight? or do I need to degas it after every hunt?

                    • Stick from USA:

                      I keep my older model 2000 to 3000 psi, and leave it. For weeks, even (and it does not leak at all). Tough job, though, cuz it's too tempting to play with it!

                    • John Watts from USA:

                      Mine stays fully charged, ready to be used.

                    • steven from USA:

                      you always want to keep some pressure in the chamber so your seals stay good just leave it around 500 thats how it comes factory you can leave it at 1500 and it won't hurt it just when you are done shooting don't fill it back up there is no need

                      the pellet magazine sits taller than top of breech need two piece mounts to span the gap where magazine goes get it cool

                    • Clay from USA:

                      Magazine won't fit properly in the limited space with one piece mount.

                    You say not to use CO2 but it is still on the specifications page.

                    • Nadav from Israel:

                      i bought the .25 version and i used co2, its not recommanded and it could break your gun, and its just low powered, use pcp.

                    • Christopher from USA:

                      It works with CO2 but the new valve design makes it less efficient than the previous marauder using CO2... so now they market it as just an HPA gun.

                  • Nadav from Israel asked:

                    i have Air Venturi G4 Hand Pump, Hose with 1/8" BSPP Threads and Benjamin Hand Pump, Fits Crosman & Benjamin PCP Guns, so which hand-pump will work without adepter Benjamin Marauder PCP Air Rifle, Synthetic Stock ?

                  • Anthony from USA asked:

                    Curious as to why it is now showing as HPA only? Is this a new change related to the new valve, or has it just been incorrectly promoted in the past?

                    • Val from USA:

                      Marauder started off to be marketed as dual fuel. While you could run it on CO2 very few people were doing it and it was not performing very well. Thus Crosman now only markets it as HPA. Some of the valve design changes introduced later in the Marauders also made them less effective on CO2.

                      Ok, update from Crosman today - they are entered production today and should be shipping first few hundred to Pyramyd Air on Wednesday 10/30.

                  • Armando from USA asked:

                    this rifle have any recoil? in at scale of 1 to 10 how much?

                    • Val from USA:

                      1 - having no recoil at all, and 10 - being a Barrett M82, this gun is a 1.

                  • Tony from USA asked:

                    Any updates?Crosman keeps changing the release dates.Also will they discontinue the wood version?

                    • Val from USA:

                      No, wood stock rifle will NOT be discontinued. We are told synthetic stocks went into production today (10/21/2013), so far release date is on target.

                  • John from USA asked:

                    Does the Synthetic stock 25 caliber have the same ( Green Mtn ) barrel as the wood stock version of the 25 caliber?

                    • Tyler from USA:

                      I would assume so as we have not been told anything different from Crosman. But we will have to wait for the gun to arrive to find out for sure.

                  • Eugene from USA asked:

                    what kind of improvements made ??in rifle barrels or the inner workings of the rifle? compared with the previous marauder, speaking of the three calibers .177, .22, .25?

                    • Val from USA:

                      Different valve and a depinger were added to provide more shots per fill. Same barrels, and action, trigger was moved slightly for a more comfortable use.

                  • Ken from USA asked:

                    • Val from USA:

                      The actions are expected to be different, and I don't believe you will be able to swap the stocks with the old wood stock unfortunately

                  • Mike from USA asked:

                    Can I get the lighter stock for my current Marauder?

                    • Val from USA:

                      Mike, unfortunately we don't expect the stocks between the current wood stock version and the new synthetic stock to be replaceable
