    Things I liked:

    very accurate. From the bench, on bags without rear support and in limited ability hands it appears capable of 3/4" groups at 25 yds and 1" groups at 40 meters with crosman domed 7.9 and 10.5 gr pellets. The crosman barrel is recommended.

    Things I would have changed:

    maybe a lighter stock for off hand shooting

    Things I liked:

    This is one of my first air rifles and after much searching, I can say I am not disappointed. The upgraded Walther barrel is accurate and it's very very quiet. The trigger is probably one of my favorite triggers and it is buttery smooth with a nice take up a nice wall, and a very smooth and light break. needs zero work out of the box and it's powerful. As said by other people it really shines between 2600 and 1900 psi. above that, it's a little hot and groups open up but not very much. I get a good 40 to 50 shots between fills but really haven't paid much attention to it. I am very please with this rifle and for what I use it for (plinking and small pest control) it is almost perfect.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's heavy.....

    What others should know:

    this rifle performs above its price point from what I can tell.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate and getting 90 accurate shots after a 3000 psi fill.

    Things I would have changed:

    A little disappointed in the quality of the stock.. but that is just me nick picking.. I would like to see an option for an upgraded stock that will accept the regulated version...

    What others should know:

    If you are going to get a Maruader.. you a way better off saving up a little extra to get the field and target version with the lother walther barrell.. it is very consistent since it is regulated.

    Things I liked:

    Quiet, accurate, smooth trigger, consistent regulated pressure, ease of recharging, ease of loading. Price point is very good. Read reviews, watched videos.....when it finally got here, it lived up to the hype. Quiet....accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    10 shot mags....not enough, 1 mag is not enough ( I purchased 2 extra mags and probably should have bought 5 additional) Stock is heavy and bulky, I ordered the wood stock. I have not decided if this is good or bad yet.

    What others should know:

    I am a poor judge of air guns as I have only owned a Beeman break barrel previously, my background is designing AR10 and AR15's then machining thousands of ea in a legal FFL production setting. I reload .223 and .308 so I can shoot often. Back to the Marauder, I am truly shocked how quiet and accurate this rifle is. I have a problem with starlings which is why I started searching, a friend of mine owned a .177 Marauder and is an avid air gunner, I still went further and spent hours researching before buying. Other than waiting so long (Covid Time) to receive this rifle, I am not disappointed in the least. I fitted it with an ATN Day/Night scope 3-14x (not as clear as regular glass, but has other fun features) and sighted in the rifle. I am barely a sub MOA shooter with the AR's, (I am old) but this rifle makes even me look good. I thought the 5 shot test target that came with the rifle was an exaggeration, happy to say it was correct.

    Things I liked:

    quality of the rifle is outstanding, finished well and looks great. The accuracy is better than I imagined.

    Things I would have changed:

    can't think of anything

    What others should know:

    I would definitely get an air compressor for this or any air gun. My brother has several air guns and he bought a compressor that he allows me to use to pressurize my rifle. Manually operated hand compressors will wear you out.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy. Accuracy, and Accuracy. Crosman barrel too.

    Things I would have changed:

    Weight. I would make it as well as my unregulated synrod Marauder. The barrel band was off center and the tip of the gun that screws in that's under spring tension doesnt fit properly. The bolt action is not as smooth as my synrod either, after 500 rounds. The quality control on this model and gun was very poor.

    What others should know:

    I got the 10 for 10 and my chronograph read outs where 50fps slower then my slip. I could tell it was slower just by comparison of my unregulated synrod Marauder which I had turned up the settings on. I tested my chronograph on all my rifles and compared them to the specs on this site and found them to be quite accurate. So I honestly dont know why the 10 for 10 was 890's and mine read 830's. On top of it being weak out of the box the barrel band was off center.... why? I thought their was a visual inspection that would catch that. I may have just got a bad one but I was extremely disappointed with this rifle. Loving my synrod so much I thought fir sure this would be a home run. The field and target and my synrod get the exact same shot count from 3000 to 2000 psi. The only advantage the regulated model has is that it keeps the power more consistent below 2000psi giving you more accurate shots. If you want easy this the gun.owning a chronograph I get more power and the same shot count.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    Everything was okay with the rifle I just got a bad Barrel, so the gun would not even group at 30 yards

    What others should know:

    I have a Benjamin Marauder 25 caliber and it is a tack driver awesome rifle I just got done shooting it. I would definitely get the 25 caliber Marauder the 22s have had problems with other people too; including Ted's holdover if you look him up on UTUBE.

    Things I liked:

    70 shots with an average 846 fps and a std dev of 7.8 using Crosman 14.3gr HPs. Extreme spread over the 70 shots was 28fps with majority of shots around 850 fps. Very minor adjustments to hammer spring and hammer throw were made.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the regulator adjustable. Include open sights.

    What others should know:

    Shot as advertised and expected.

    Things I liked:

    I ordered a 0.22 cal. Very accurate out of the box, one ragged hole at 15 yards. Appears to shot very flat out to 30 yards, is still rising at 10 yards. Cant wait till a nice day to put it on a bench rest and shot farther. About 30 shots between 3000psi and 2000psi. Mine likes JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy Diablo 18.13 gr best, H&N Baracuda match 5.53 next, H&N Baracuda match 5.52;third, the only pellets tried so far.

    Things I would have changed:

    A rail for other attachments like a light.

    What others should know:

    Great rifle, heavy but very accurate.

    I got the Lothar Walther Match Barrel in 22 cuase I want to hit a bulls eye on the bulls eye but so far its shooting like my other 22 with the regular Crossman barrel which is ok but maybe it needs to be broken in .

    Things I liked:

    1- Price for the Quality 2- Accuracy

    Things I would have changed:

    1- I wish Crossman came up with some kind of a mechanism to prevent double loading. 2- The weight.

    What others should know:

    Folks, I am very familiar with air guns (spring, break barrel types). I have been shooting since I was a little boy and now I am fifty. One thing I must say, the move from a break barrel to a PCP is a huge leap. When you enter the PCP domain, there is absolutely no going back! What I bought is a .22/Regulated/W&L barrel. What a purchase! The distance I was struggling to cover using my high quality German made spring air guns is flawlessly covered quadropoly by this amazing Marauder. I don't remember last time I was so happy with a purchase. I wish I did it sooner.

    Things I liked:

    Overall, I am pleased with this rifle. It has functioned flawlessly and holds its air charge with no detectable leakage for weeks at a time which is the longest I've gone without using it. I bought it in .22 caliber with the Lothar barrel, because I was looking for the most accuracy I could get in an affordable rifle. I've put over 1,000 rounds through it using 9 different pellets (JSB, H&N, Crosman, and Gamo). I am still looking for the magic pellet which will reliably shoot 1/2" 10 shot groups at 25 yards from a bench rest. I have shot a couple of 1/2" groups with the Crosman Premier Domed Ultra Magnum 14.3 gr and the JSB Jumbo Exact 15.89 gr pellets. But, not reliably--the next group under the same conditions might be 3/4" or larger. I also like the adjustable comb and the Weaver/Picatinny rail.

    Things I would have changed:

    Being over 6' tall, I would prefer a longer length of pull or maybe an adjustable length of pull.

    What others should know:

    I have been shooting and reloading center fire rifle cartridges for 40+ years. This is my second adult pellet rifle and my first PCP. It is nice to be able to target shoot without having to go to the nearest rifle range 23 miles away.

    Things I liked:

    Ok the wife got me this with the lother Walter battle simple its a tack driver you get 70 shots easy. This is my first pcp an maybe the only one I need. I got 177 so maybe a 22. But if in dought what one to buy first simply buy this one. I shoot 30 yards an with less then 50 shoots I got 10 shot group covered with a dime. Had bit of trouble with mag called they sent me new one right out

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. O I hand pump it no problem at all doing it

    What others should know:

    Simply just buy this one no up grades needed

    Things I liked:

    I wish I would have taken the plunge into PCP sooner! I really like this rifle for it's large number of consistent shots between fills. It is very quiet and accuracy is excellent... the ground squirrels don't know what hit them. I have it sighted for 50 yards where it is deadly accurate, and often make shots out to 70+ yards

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing... so far it outperforms my skills.

    Things I would have changed:

    I haven't found anything yet that I didn't like.

    What others should know:

    it's a regulated tack-driver. It is not a kid's gun -- too heavy and bulky for younger shooters. Great for adults.

    Things I liked:

    I originally bought a Gamo Swarm .177 for target shooting in my backyard. The Swarm is a fun gun to shoot but hard to shoot accurately. I avoided PCP's at first because I was under the impression they take too much effort and expense to charge, i.e. tanks, compressors, etc.. That really isn't the case. The Marauder F & T works fine with a Hill pump...takes me about 3 minutes or so to fill from 2000 psi to 3000 psi...gives about 40+ shots. I could discharge lower and get more shots, but I like to take a break after about 40 shots anyway. Check out the Rick Eutsler (Airgun Web) video on Youtube...everything he states is true. On bags I can shoot a 3/8" group at 50 yds...just amazed at the accuracy of this gun. Incidentally, this particular gun has the Lothar barrel.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not really anything. I might comment that this gun is heavy...probably 10 lbs with scope...but not necessarily a bad thing for target shooting.

    What others should know:

    Quiet, Accurate, American manufactured, good value...whats not to like?
