    Things I liked:

    Reasonable priced. It is good that is light and sturdy. Being plastic prevents any ware and tear on the loading breach area of the pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine should be high capacity like 10 rounds of pellets. This magazine needs a better method of loading system that is easier. Plastic type lead-free pellets do not cycle well and cause jam in the gun with this magazine.I wish that the other faces of the Magazine is clear so you can identify the pellet you plan on shooting.

    What others should know:

    When loading the magazines the skirt end should be visible through the clear plastic.You have to recognize the type of pellet from the skirt end you are planning on shooting.Purchase more magazines if you plan on doing hunting. Reason being you can not reload a partially loaded magazine and for pellet recognition. I have labeled the mags with the specific pellets.

    Things I liked:

    These magazines function as well as my Marauder rifle magazines. I have had no issues with the newest generation of Marauder pistol magazines.

    Things I would have changed:

    These magazines do exactly what they should. I would make no changes.

    What others should know:

    Loading is a little tricky. Rotate the clear back plate clockwise until it locks on the loading detent. Load the first pellet, with your finger over the front of the magazine to keep the pellet from falling through. Rotate the clear rear plate counterclockwise, off of the detent, the first pellet is now held in position by the spring tension on the rotating cylinder inside the magazine body. With the magazine front facing down, rotate the clear rear plate counterclockwise indexing the holes in the rotating inner cylinder to finish loading the other seven pellets. After all eight pellets loaded, rotate the clear back cover a little bit further to its battery detent. You are ready to shoot. I bought five spare magazines, so I can shoot a charge down without having to shut down and load magazines. If you can afford a Marauder pistol, you cannot afford not to have several spare magazines. The Marauder pistol wthout a magazine is an expensive hard to load single shot. ( without the feed tray). Thanks, Sparky

    Things I liked:

    The best thing about these magazines is they work and look exactly like Marauder rifle magazines. I really think it was wise to use the counter sunk allen head screw to hold the clear rotating rear cover. This makes it possible to tune the friction on the clear rear plate and how tight the lockup is in the loading position. Benjamin gets an ATTABOY on that one, for not using a pop-rivet are something else off the wall.

    Things I would have changed:

    Crosman, I would make sure your magazines work like they should before they leave the factory.

    What others should know:

    When I bought my new Marauder pistol, I ordered three spare mags. The magazine that came with the pistol malfunctioned. When I received the three spare mags, one of them broke. I am experiencing 50% failure rate, so far. Now, the good part. Erica, at Pyramyd Air made it right, by shipping my replacement magazines as soon as they arrive at Pyramyd from Benjamin. I am good with this because, the new mags should be from a different production run. Remember, Pyramyd does not build airguns. They have to operate on good faith with there suppliers, until they get feedback from us. Thanks, Sparky

    Things I liked:

    These magazines are very similar to those used by the Marauder rifle, which have functioned flawlessly for over a year in my Marauder rifle. The Marauder pistol magazines fit well onto the magazine feeding dowel on the breech end of the barrel, which makes for little or no gap for the pellet to snag on while chambering a pellet. Fit and finsh are very good. Do not be afraid of polymer magazines. They are tougher than a metal magazine and will not bend or distort without being overheated or abused in some way. NOTE: I found out today that these magazines are assembled with a tiny countersunk allen head screw approximately 0.050", which makes it possible to tune the drag on the clear rotating rear cover. This is good because the tension on that plate is what holds the rotating cover in place when it locked open for loading. Thanks, Sparky

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have tried to catch problems before they go out to the public. That is easier said than done I know. Thanks, Sparky

    What others should know:

    I have had some problems with the springs on the magazine cylinders. Two have broken, while I was loading them. They are under the most tension when the clear rear cover is rotated back and locked to insert the first pellet. When I spoke to one of the nice people at Pyramyd. She got it sorted out to my satisfaction in a very short time. I think Benjamin was under a lot of pressure to get the Marauder pistol and its accessories available to us A.S.A.P. Quality control at Crosman dropped the ball on this one . I have ordered five spare mags that will come from a different production run. I think that will solve the QC issue. Thanks, Sparky You guys need spell check for on these reveiws.
