Things I liked:

Great package for the money! I upgraded to the 22 Lothar Walter barrel. Very happy and its deadly accurate.The compressor had a dent scratch but works fine. I wish I Could have traded up on the scope which is the only weak spot but it's not bad. Custom Marauder, scope, compressor, sling, carry bag I ordered a extra magazine and some pellets. One package and your ready to shoot. Very impressed!!! Shooting targets and wire nuts at 30 yards [email protected]@!

Things I would have changed:

Just wish I could have traded up and payed the difference for better scope

Things I liked:

. I've been enjoying the rifle immensely for three days before the rifle then failed. I couldn't load any pellets into the breech unless I pushed the bolt in really hard which I didn't want to do. I had to then force the rotary mag out which left behind a crushed pellet in the barrel and one in the mag. After clearing it away I tried to load one pellet by hand. The pellet would not slide into the breach unless I angled it a certain way. When I fired it, the pellet would miss its mark by a ridiculous amount.

Things I would have changed:

My package arrived last week. I filled my rifle to 3000 PSI at which time my power supply for the compressor made a popping sound and died. I contacted Crossman and was assured that a representative named Kevin would reach out to me to resolve the issue and have a replacement sent out to me. That was a week ago, and no phone call. So to use and refill the rifle I've been using the clamps for powering the compressor with 13 Volts DC.

So, in three days since the p my power supply failed and my rifle to follow. I contacted PA and will be receiving an exchange when they are in stock again. This time the better Loather Walther Barrel which I hope will make a difference in the quality of the product. I please the purchase is being backed up and PA is an honest seller true to their word. But this initial purchase was a big disappointment. I will have a follow up after the next package arrives

    Things I liked:

    I've had this rifle for about a month and have made several trips to the local range. I went with the 22 cal. with the WL barrel upgrade. The accuracy out of the box is remarkable. Using JSB 15.9 grain pellets I'm getting 1/2" groupings at 25 yards and 3/4" groupings at 50 yards. The 10 shot magazines are easy to load, and I haven't experienced any issues using multiple different pellets. The overall appearance of the rifle is outstanding. The weight with the included Centerpoint 4-16x40 AO scope is 10lbs. The scope is bright and clear from 4 to 12 power with good eye relief. The crosshairs are thin enough for smaller targets, and the triangle style mil markings are small enough to not obscure longer distance shots. Finally, I am very pleased with the Nomad II high-pressure compressor. It seems well built and includes a very good user's manual. Refilling this rifle from 2000 to 3000 psi it takes only about 3 minutes.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only issue I have with this rifle is that the bolt requires quite a bit of effort to fully cock. This is not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of. Also, I would have hoped for windage holdings on the TAG reticle.

    What others should know:

    Overall, this is a great rifle for target shooting and hunting with a maximum usable range of about 70 yards.

    Things I liked:

    I'll be upfront with you, this is my first air gun since I was a kid. I'm 68 now so it's been decades since I was a kid! And there have been so many changes in the air gun industry that I considered myself a new shooter when I started looking at them. I wanted the best set-up for a new shooter that would help me get my feet wet and not break the bank in the process. I settled on this combo because the gun makes good power and this combo came with literally everything I would need as a new shooter. The only thing lacking is a bipod and I picked one of them for not much money.

    Things I would have changed:

    I am disappointed that the sling mounting pins seem larger than the holes in the mounts that came on the rifle. I was going to drill them out but have been searching the web to see if maybe I'm doing something wrong. They also need to include better instructions with the rifle. You have to pull back HARD to get it open enough for the magazine to slip into place. I'm hoping it will loosen up with use. But I had no idea I'd have to pull back so hard and got really frustrated before watching a video on YouTube and a guy explained it. But man, my 30.06 cocks really smooth and easy and I expected this to operate the same way and it doesn't. But now that I know that it isn't an issue.

    What others should know:

    Customer service was very prompt when I sent an angry email while trying to just get the magazine inserted. It couldn't have been 10 minutes and I had a response. By then, I had figured it out. But I commend them on being so prompt and assuring that they're there if I have any problems. That made me feel better about the money that I spent trying to get into air guns. And they earned quite a few loyalty points when it comes to future purchases. But if you have any fears about Pyramid Air being a company who stands behind what they sell, you can put those fears to rest. They didn't pay me anything to say this, they just responded to my problem very quickly and I appreciate good customer service.

    Rifle is of Exceptional quality. Extremely accurate. High shot count. The Nomad II compressor is a game changer. Easy to use and maintain. Fast.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wish there was an option for a tunable regulator on the field and target Marauder.

    What others should know:

    The wood on my marauder was surprisingly nice. Much better than the old 'plain Jane' beech stocks that they used to use. The .22 shoots the cheap stuff REALLY well. I'm getting great groups out of the CPHP's. If you are on the fence about getting in to PCP, THIS is the package to start with. Great combo.

    Put compressor oil in combo.

    Quiet and very accurate. I am very surprised at how quiet this rifle is. I can shoot this rifle in my backyard and the neighbors have no idea. I purchased the field and target regulated version in 22 and it is very accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like some stock option upgrades like green mountain etc.

    What others should know:

    This rifle is worth the money. I would recommend watching YouTube videos on how to load up magazines. Get spare magazines cause you'll shoot a bunch.

    Things I liked:

    Gun is a tack driver. Scope is good. Nomad II filled my Marauder and my Bulldog quickly. Love the carrying bag the Nomad II comes with. Makes it a very portable unit.

    Things I would have changed:

    The stock. More exactly the finish of the stock which seems to be nonexistent. When I first opened the box I was pleasantly surprised by the figuring of the walnut but when I picked up the gun the air left the balloon. The stock seemed dry and unfinished. It also seemed like it needed to be sanded more. If I were to run a microfiber towel over this stock it would snag the fibers. The adjustable cheekpiece seems to have been cut out by hand with a bandsaw that left a wavy joint. The blade marks weren't sanded at all. For a gun at this price point with the Lothar-Walther barrel I expected better. I'll be applying a Tru-Oil finish which I'm sure will look amazing. Also, the swivels for the included sling do not slide into the posts well. The holes in the post seem to be too small. I've never had this happen before.

    What others should know:

    The overall value is good. The gun shoots incredibly well. I had it zeroed in the first 10-shot mag at 25 yards and proceeded to take out squirrels that have been literally eating my house. Now I'm eating them! The compressor works well although I only have two fills on it. It seems like a quality compressor and isn't overly loud.

    Things I liked:

    The gun is a tack-driver. The Walnut stock is figured and beautiful. The compressor and gun seem to be a good match. The scope isn't bad. The Nomad II has an awesome carrying case which really enhances the portability. It topped off my Marauder from 2-3K in less than 2 minutes(I didn't time it) and Filled my brand new empty Bulldog from 0-3K in approx 6 minutes.

    Things I would have changed:

    Some kind of finish on the stock. My first impression when I opened the box was that I had a beautiful figured walnut stock but then I picked it up and the air left the balloon. At first I thought it was just a matte finish but I don't think there is anything on this thing. I can see darkening where the oil from my cheek soaked in. The joint in the adjustable cheekpiece that was probably cut with a band saw was a bit wavy and the wood in the cut is unsanded and rough. The rest of the stock seems like it needed another sanding and a finish. For a gun that retails for almost $800.00 with the Lothar-Walther barrel the fit and finish is a bit underwhelming. Fortunately I'm pretty handy and will be finishing this stock with a Tru-oil finish with plenty of sanding. It'll be a real head turner when I'm done. Also, the sling swivels don't slide into the posts easily. I've never seen that before. It's as if the holes in the posts are too small.

    What others should know:

    There is a lot here for the money. The gun is a tack-driver. I really didn't count the shots between 3K and 2K psi but I had it zeroed at 25 yards in the first 10-shot mag. and after 40 or so shots it was still dead-on. After zeroing I proceeded to take out squirrels that are literally eating my house away. Now I'm eating them! Once I finish the stock this will be a really handsome and effective small game gun. Also it's really quiet even without a moderator.

    Things I liked:

    Everything! The Field and Target Marauder is an excellent rifle, accurate out of the box and once I shot a few hundred rounds through it the regulator really started to settle in and the accuracy got even better. It was well worth the wait for this kit. The Nomad 2 is a great little compressor and does its job very well. It is a bit louder than I had thought but still quiet enough that if your not in the same room it's not a bother. I can run it in the basement and not hear it upstairs. So far I'm getting about 40 shots per fill and that is also increasing as the regulator in the rifle settles in. I got the Lothar Walther barrel and it's accurate! So far I haven't been able to shoot it at the range (just in my basement at 10 yards) but the chronograph is telling me that I can get over 900 fps with alloy pellets. With JSB Jumbo Heavy 18.13 grains it's shooting 20 shot groups into a single hole just over the size of a pencil eraser at an average 779 fps. Got to get it out to the range .

    Things I would have changed:

    I didn't mount the included scope so I can't comment on it. Everything else, the sling, caring case for the rifle and the case for the compressor are all quality made so I wouldn't change a thing, though it would be nice to have a longer fill hose and some silicone oil with the kit.

    What others should know:

    Shoot It! A GREAT kit. Just follow the instructions to take care of the compressor and the rifle and you will have something to pass down to your grand kids. You should also buy some extra magazines for the Marauder. Those 10 shots can go real quick. You will also need to buy some silicone oil for the pump. The kit doesn't come with any, just an empty bottle for the silicone oil. Only one other thing. At the breach of the rifle, there is a small "O" ring that seals around the bolt when inserting the pellet. Be very careful with it if you decide to clean your barrel. I talked to Crosman and they don't recommend using anything, not even a rag to clean the bore with, and definitely no cleaning solutions because it may ruin that seal. Love the people at P.A. for putting this kit together it's worth every cent!

    After reading a lot of reviews and doing research I picked the .22 Marauder. It is all I hoped for and more. Excellent quality and workmanship. Not quite as accurate as I wanted but I am a real stickler for accuracy. Also, I have not yet found the perfect pellet. I know they are out there.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    The Mrod field and target is a great shooting gun. Super quiet. Remarkably accurate. Just starting to tune it with different pellets to see what it likes. Crosman 19 grain domed pellets were spot on out of the box. Does not seem to shoot the 14.3 as well but may need to be tuned for it. I am super pleased with this purchase.

    Greetings again everyone. This is my follow up quick review of my replacement Benjamin rifle which I received last week. Please read my first review of the my first purchase. Thus far I've been firing this rifle non-stop since I received it firing hundreds of pellets through it. This replacement rifle has the Lothar Walther Barrel upgrade. Now I haven't done any down range shooting at 50 yards as of yet. But what I have done is is take quite a few shots at 50 feet. My results more than likely won't impress lot of people reading this. However, as a first time PCP owner the results are just astounding to me. At 50ft I consistently stack my pellets each and every time making a hole in my target which is smaller than a dime. I wish I could post a picture of it here so I can show you these amazing accuracy results but I'm sure you get the idea. Keep in mind I did this without a bi-pod, just some pillows and a foam tube to keep the rifle as stable as possible. Thats 2 mags 20 pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    This replacement rifle is everything I expected it to be, a great purchase. And the fact that I now own a compressor which opens a whole new world of air gunning for me is even cooler. So far the only issue I've come across is that I had to shim the rear of my scope because there is a slight barrel droop. Nothing which can been seen by eye but there non the less. The scope could not be zeroed in using it's dial adjustments. But after it's been shimmed and zeroed, there was question as to how accurate this rifle is, amazing ! Like I wrote above, I'm consistently stacking 20 pellets at a time at 50 feet into a hole smaller than a dime.

    What others should know:

    The second generation compressor was also a major improvement over the first one I received which went bad after only one use. The First gen had a separate power supply which made it really made the unit cumbersome. A ridiculous set up if you ask me. But the second Generation is excellent. It filled my rifle out of the box where it was almost empty to 3000psi in about 10 minutes. From 1500 to 3000 even less. The Gen 2 is one unit with the bleed on the compressor rather than the hose. It also has an external fuse which the first Gen didn't. Just a far far superior product. As usual PA has backed their product with no questions asked. This is why I would never by an air gun from any other company. I'm not trying to sound like a PA fan boy, but when a company stands behind their products the way PA does it must be mentioned and acknowledged. For me, this was a perfect entry level purchase into the world of PCP's. I just never know what I was missing. Odd not feeling the kick of a springe

    .22 w/Lothar barrel. Very accurate. At least so far. Have sighted in scope and at 20 yards very easily does dime size and if I try same hole Very happy with that, will get some distance and see. Number of shots per fill seems about 60 but dont have chrono so dont know for sure Happy with Pyramyd Air service

    Things I would have changed:

    Better quality stock. First one I received the stock was broken in shipping. Doesnt give me a warm fuzzy. It just seems kinda cheap. I would probably go with synthetic if the FT was available with it

    Things I would have changed:

    I would prefer a MILDOT scope, but the scope that came with it works well. It seemed a bit heavy at first for off-hand shooting but I think it just took some getting used to.

    What others should know:

    This is my first air rifle aside from an off the shelf break barrel. I splurged and jumped in head first with a PCP kit. It was a big purchase for a first but it has turned out to be great move on my part. I purchased some F&T targets and haven't looked back. I opted for the regulated .177 version as I am new to air gunning and not so much a tinkerer and am shooting targets only. With a bi-pod I am getting bored out to 50 yards already. In order to mix things up I have hung cans in trees on the property line at 75 and 95 yards. This is a fun, well built air rifle. If you buy one, splurge on some extra magazines, you won;t regret it.
