    Things I liked:

    Mine is the field and target in .177 with the Lothar Walther barrel. This is my first PCP. I had to wait a while to get it but was worth it. The accuracy is incredible right out of the box, pyramyd did a nice job setting it up. It is not pellet picky and is easy to operate. I would recommend a compressor. Its a sizable investment to get into the PCP arena but if you like to shoot this is worth it, pellets are cheap and readily available, unlike .270 cartridges. Nice walnut stock gives it a nice look and feel. Its a tad heavy but balances very well so I don't mind. I mounted a bug buster on it and am very happy with it. I have always loved airguns but this takes airgunning to a new level for me. The gun is quiet so I can shoot indoors. It is everything all the reviews say it is. Holds air well. I will be enjoying this for a long time. Thank you Pyramyd Air.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would love to see an affordable bullpup stock for this. Would be perfect.

    What others should know:

    Get the 10 for 10. The weight is not too heavy but I would not put a large scope on this gun. Get extra magazines. Floating barrel so don't lean it up in a corner, get a case or keep it in a rack. This is not a childs airgun.

    Things I liked:

    Easy to use and work. The stock is great and having a piccatiny rail for scope mounting the best

    Things I would have changed:

    The gun should come with de bouncing devise, not as something else you can purchase. I would like to see a piccatiny rail on the stock to mount a bipod

    What others should know:

    Use 15 to 18 grain JSB pellets and you will be very happy. Proven accuracy at the range is .750 at 50 yards. Heavier pellets dont shoot well.

    Things I liked:

    The gun I purchased is the Benjamin Marauder Field and target in .22 with the Lothar Walther barrel. I am new to the pcp world but so far what I have been doing is I played with the trigger and I am very happy with it. I shortened up the first stage trigger pull and was able to get the second stage to a very nice 1.3 pound pull. A friend was with me when I shot it at 45 yards and we shot a 1/2 inch group with a JSB 15.89 grain pellet 10 rounds, my friend is hooked he is now looking to buy one. It is a heavy gun with a Hawk scope and bipod on it you will be at around 11.5 pounds. That is the biggest fault with it. As time goes on I will play with more types of pellets. Even though I had to wait a while to receive my whole order it was very much worth it thank you Greg W. and P/A for working with me.

    Things I would have changed:

    If there was away to get rid of some of the weight it would be perfect, that is why it got 4 stars.

    What others should know:

    When you get your gun just start shooting it maybe get a 1000 rounds threw it to break it in I started playing with the pressures and as I shot it threw the crony I noticed that the velocity started going up so all the testing will have to be redone. Remember to write down the factory settings so you can always go back to them. It is very easy to adjust.

    Things I liked:

    Very well made. Nice stock. Very adjustable. Easy to adjust hammer throw length, and hammer spring strength.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would be nice to not have to remove the stock for the port adjustment.

    What others should know:

    I could not get better than 3-4 inch groups at 25 yards. Tried 4 different pellets, and it made no difference. Normally I would blame myself for not shooting well, but my other pcp rifles group well inside an inch at 25 yards. There may be some other pellets that would work, and maybe ,22 caliber would be more accurate.

    Things I liked:

    A easy 5 star. I had this rifle scope in with the end 12 shots. It is a tack driver out of the box. This Benjamin marauder will hold its own out of any of them. Well worth waiting for. I will recommend this to anyone. If you are particular you want a gun that will stacked led on top led in the bull's-eye at the range and will get the job done when you go hunting this Benjamin marauder is the one.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    There are cheaper guns out there but chances are they will not have the accuracy and you will not be very happy with them. The way mine shoots I would not take anything for it. Go ahead if you need to and save up a little extra and get this you won't regret it. You have heard about guys with the silly giggles after they shoot their tack drivers this will put a great big giggle and your your face.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate, not pellet picky. This is the Field and Target model in .22 with Lothar Walther barrel. Approx 70 good shots or more from from 3000 psi fill. Fps started steady but slow decline at about shot 65 . Would buy again.

    Things I would have changed:

    Came with Centerpoint 4 x 16 AO scope. Eye relief on higher mag doesnt work well for me with glasses.. I Installed 3x9x40 UTG scope works for better for me. Maybe give some choice in scopes? Not crazy about the stock. It is real wood but seems cheaply finished and scratches easily. It is kind of heavy for hunting. The included sling helps

    What others should know:

    I chronographed with multiple pellets. All but heavy 21gr Camos were between 800 and 900 FPS approx 10ft from barrel. Crosman 14.3gr HP were 868 fps, JSB Exact Express 14.3gr 881 fps, JSB Jumbo Hvy 18.1gr 801 fps. Love the gun overall. Very accurate and easy to shoot accurately. So much so you may not to shoot your old breakbarrel anymore. An old guy like me can easily get quarter or smaller dime size groups at 35yds. Limited by by skill, not the gun. Another downside is that I now go thru soooo many pellets! Lol.

    Things I liked:

    With the Lothar Walther barrel, this rifle shoots amazing groups! Couldn't be happier with the accuracy for the price.

    Things I would have changed:

    I ordered Benjamin Marauder Field and Target .22 rifle bundled with the Nomad II compressor back in early April 2020. The package shipped with the wrong compressor (a cheaper one I might add) so PA recalled both the rifle (why?) and the compressor. The Nomad II compressor was backordered and arrived late July 2020. The rifle arrived in early August 2020, but this time the rifle stock was broken in two pieces. I returned the busted rifle, and of course the same rifle was backordered. The replacement rifle finally arrived in late November 2020, but this time with a leaky pressure gauge. I was so excited to finally have it that I didn't realize i was only getting about 40 shots with each fill. By the morning, the pressure would be at zero psi. If I had no bad luck, I would have no luck at all. The issue turned out to be bad teflon taping around the gauge threading. Simply using yellow gas teflon fixed the leak like magic.

    Things I liked:

    10/9/20 22cal marauder f&t Well worth the money. Strong, durable, Quiet only down side is its Heavy. Upon first shooting it I was completely astonished how quite it is. Compared to my daisy & Sheridan pump. I feel like I dont even hear any air come out. All I hear is the internal parts. Sounds like a thud. Its very consistent in where it hits. Todays my first day shooting it. Hitting a soda can at 60 yards. Also a bigger empty tin can. Punched right through it with the barracuda hunter extreme. Also shot the bigger can at 80 yards & it punched through it with the H&N hornets. Going to shoot more tomorrow. Will update this if I can as the years go on. Used a hand pump. Not terribly bad for a 26 year old. It is a little hard. I weigh 150. More weight would help Im sure. Any ways. Definely reccomend this gun if you dont mind it being a heavy

    Things I would have changed:

    Less weight, gun is heavy. Another magazine would be nice. It costs nearly 700$ for the gun. Than 200 for a pump. Than ammo. Comes out to be a lot.

    What others should know:

    Pyramid air shipped my order out within a day. Extreamly fast service. I definely reccomend this gun. It exceeded my expectations. Accuracy, power & noise level are completely on point

    Things I liked:

    My wood stocked 22cal Crossman barrel version is nothing short of amazing! 5 shot groups at 100 yards are approaching 1.5" with bulk pellets and 5x scope. The trigger is excellent and the fit and finish is very nice indeed. In short I love it!

    Things I would have changed:

    Notihng really. Cocking effort is on the high side, but that is just the nature of things.

    What others should know:

    You can double feed pellets (personal problem) nothing wrong with the gun. If ya go with a hand pump (I did) figure 100 pumps from 1500 to 2500 psi.

    Things I liked:

    extremely accurate at 25yd and 40meters. Easy adjustment of trigger to single stage with 1.25lb pull

    Things I would have changed:

    very heavy and front heavy for off hand shooting

    What others should know:

    stock is of poor quality - required return due to finish flaking off as received. Description of 'hardwood' is misleading - it appears to be a wood composite that doesn't take stain. 'Stain' is more like a painted finish. If there is a problem with the stock on the Field & Target model, a replacement stock cannot be found. The normal replacement stock does not fit the Field & Target model due to location of the pressure gauge

    Things I liked:

    I appreciate the adjustable trigger. A proper trigger pull is very critical for accuracy. I have had the rifle for 5 months. It seems the accuracy is still improving. This rifle is a .22 with a Lothar Walther barrel. This rifle will shoot a .25 inch 3 shot group at 40 yards. This rifle seems to prefer 15.89 grain JSB diablo ammo out of all the ammo I have tried. I also appreciate the picatinny rail. Saves some money on scope mounting hardware.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think that, for the price, you can't ask for much more.

    What others should know:

    I had difficulty with the magazine. The end of the torsion spring that attaches to the magazine case kept slipping out of its hole. I glued it in with a drop of CA glue. Then the rotor would fail to advance to the next round sometimes. I disassembled the magazine, applied a film of silicone lube to the surfaces of the rotor that contact the magazine case. I then dusted that with dry graphite lube. The silicone lube served as "glue" to keep the graphite in place until I could reassemble the magazine. Be careful not to over torque the machine screw during reassembly. The magazine has functioned flawlessly since these two "adjustments".

    Things I liked:

    I really like the adjustable cheekpiece. This one also has a picatinny rail, so you can use regular rifle rings. I'm popping golf balls And spinners out to 65 yards, which is the furthest I've tried so far. Filling it to 3k psi, I fired 72 pellets and it went down to 1k psi, so the shot count is great. I have the .22 version. Overall, I think this is a really nice rifle for the money. Folks see it as an entry level gun, but with a lothar walther barrel and a regulator, this thing punches way above it's class.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better tuning, either from crosman or P/A. I'd give up a few shots to get a few more FPE. Shoots 2" spinners at 65 yards with crosman domed ultra magnum pellets.

    What others should know:

    It's worth the upgrade over the standard marauder. a good regulated gun is in the 1000$ and up range. This thing can shoot right beside them. I did look at some cheaper options, but when you figure in that a good scope and a hill hand pump is going to double the cost, it's really worth it to start with a solid base rifle. If you cheap out, you're cheating yourself. This is a solid investment that will last for years, and after the initial startup cost costs next to nothing to shoot.

    What others should know:

    Gun was on back order so waited for it. It was worth the wait. This is my first PCP. Got the gun and then the air pump I wanted was on backorder. Waited another 3 weeks to get the pump before I could shoot it, but very happy now. I'm sure the backorders are all COVID related and should be nothing negative toward Pyramyd Air. All kinds of things are delayed in many industries due to COVID. So just saying I should have ordered the pump early while it was available instead of waiting to try and order all at once.
