Things I liked:

This gun is crazy accurate, it is by far the best gun i have. it is my the First pcp gun, I like everything about it.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing

What others should know:

The air pump that i bought along with the gun is only for the young, it is a good pump, But not for the young or the elderly. The money it cost for the pump, for a little more money I could have bought a scuba tank and adapter. Witch I did. It will make the gun a lot more enjoyable.

    Things I liked:

    I really love this pistol. I have the rifle and needed something for close quarter short range. First off this is a very attractive piece from Benjamin. The first few break in shots were good. I pumped it up from 1.7 to 3.2 omg. Shot a few into a blackhole just to break it in. I decided to scope it. It will be a killer. I would like to try open sights with this pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    Considering cost and quality, I believe they have a home run.

    What others should know:

    I just recommend that buyers are familiar with pcp before buying. (pre charged pneumatic) not the drug. You will most likely buy a tank if you don't already have one. Just a few things to watch.

    Things I liked:

    This is my first PCP. It is easy to convert to a carbine configuration, either with the included stock or by purchasing an aftermarket AR stock. I have mounted the latter and an inexpensive red dot sight. So far, I am pleased with the accuracy. I use a MK5 Hill hand pump ( also purchased from Pyramid) to charge the Marauder and it takes between 40 and 50 strokes to go from 1,000 PSI to the maximum of 3,000 PSI.

    Things I would have changed:

    A second included magazine would be nice. However, the magazines are not very expensive.

    What others should know:

    I would like to leave a big positive shout out to Pyramid Air for its customer service. My first Marauder had a problem with the bolt. First, I called and spoke with a technician who was very helpful and gave me a few suggestions to fix the problem. Unfortunately, the problem persisted. I then requested an exchange which was processed quickly with zero hassle. My replacement pistol has been trouble free.

    Compact,light,balanced,easy to modify and accurate. Throw on your favorite LDC and you have quiet back packer that will create havoc in the squirrel woods.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wish it would have longer shroud with baffles to make it quieter

    What others should know:

    Filling with a scuba tank or compressor is the best way to go

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy

    Things I would have changed:

    Do something about amount of effort to cook bolt.

    What others should know:

    The amount of effort it takes to pull the bolt back to fully cock is ridiculous. I'm no light weight. Makes it really easy for people not used to the gun to think they have cocked the gun. Then when it doesn't fire, they recock the gun and double load pellets. Maybe I got a bad gun, but I'm not the only one with this complaint. Other bolt action guns I have take far less effort to cook. Gun is very unbalanced when you pick it up with the rear stock attached. No way to attach a sling, that's just a way to save a few manufacturing bucks, but a poor decision. Accuracy on power is great. Would be a 5 star buy for the money if a little more thought and a few more manufacturing dollars had been put into this gun before sending it into production

    Things I liked:

    This is my first pcp. I grew up shooting a very nice FWB 124D and have several fine German springers that I still shoot today. I wanted a .22 pcp for hunting. I decided to buy this because of its lightweight nature and the availability of spare parts when needed. I like the carbine format. I have enjoyed shooting a Diana Chaser pistol carbine for the last year or so. It is fun but it lacks power with the pistol barrel. I wanted something more powerful but still lightweight and compact and this is it. And for the money, it is excellent. I don't think it will be hard to repair if a leak arises and am very satisfied with its accuracy with RWS SuperDomes so far. I haven't adjusted anything concerning the tune or trigger nor have I owned it very long, but I think it is great so far, especially 4 a pcp noob like me. It is also very, very easy to pump up with the Hill pump. No effort. The Hill pump with the dry air package comes with the correct fitting to pump this pcp up.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like a single shot adapter. With the magazine in place and the bolt forward, you really never know if the chamber is truly empty with the magazine in place (a mistake can be made) . I prefer to remove the magazine from the gun for storage and ensure the chamber and barrel are clear. Also keep it on "safe" and pay attention to where you or your friends are pointing the muzzle....... like any gun, but a pistol or carbine muzzle (with its shorter overall length) can be turned toward you by a child or friend within a shorter proximity and with its light trigger.........Just a friendly safety reminder. I did add one thin layer of pipe insulation to the stock for cheek weld comfort as I did with the Diana chaser. It works great and is simple.

    What others should know:

    I know that many have expressed issues with the carbine stock, but i haven't experienced any. I am short and even so the LOP isn't too long. I would enjoy an inch shorter LOP more, but it is fine. Issues with the drop of comb and cheek/chin weld have also been mentioned. I was able to use the Sportsmatch low single screw mounts LTO30 with a Hawke Vantage 4X32 with AO. The magazine clicks into place just fine and this keeps your head lower. Everything comes up naturally and points great as if you were shooting an MP5 with an erect head and neck on a swivel. I had the same mounts and scope on the Diana Chaser and decided to try them on the PROD before ordering anything different. Some scopes have larger turret bodies and different eye reliefs and would likely need the medium mounts. A red dot could easily be used and kept lower to the bore as well with the appropriate mounts. Keep your scope as low as possible and you will be OK.

    Things I liked:

    It's entry level but not lower quality. This is the perfect introduction to the PCP world for me; made-to-last, wicked accurate, and all my friends now want one. Plus, there are tons of accessories to make it adaptable to your preferences. I also purchased a hand pump and this doesn't take long to pump-you-up! I'm easily getting four or five 8-round magazines before even thinking of topping it up. Still impressed on how accurate this pistol is. Well worth the investment.

    Things I would have changed:

    Change? The only way to make this PCP airgun better is to make it semi-auto.

    What others should know:

    Buy with confidence from PyramydAir. They've been around a long time and have earned a great reputation - that's why I selected them for my first PCP purchase. $400 isn't a lot of money to many people, but it's a small fortune to me. Make your dollars count.

    Things I liked:

    Got this yesterday and it's my first pcp. Put it all together last night and added a Walther 4x32 scope I had. Took it outside this morning and paced off about 25 yards. Nickel sized groups right out of the box. This carbine is lite and solid. I'm really enjoying this.

    Things I would have changed:

    I really wouldn't change anything. Very solid and well made. Fit and finish is very good. Trigger pull is excellent.

    What others should know:

    I'm just a hobbyist. My other rifle is a Air venturi tr5. ,177 (which I also like). The Marauder is alot more comfortable to shoot. Alot more powerful. I don't have any of the problems I've read others are having as far as scope alignment with the stock. Very comfortable and doesn't feel loose at all. I will be getting a better scope.

    Things I liked:

    Everything. Works well for pest and backyard shooting. I added a DonnyFL, and it is even more quite. I shoot inside my house too. Not to loud. I have gone through at least 3,000 pellets. Needed to change one o-ring. Mine loves JSB from 15 grain to 18 grain pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add open sights to it.

    What others should know:

    Extremely fun, and can be used with a air pump if you can handle the exercise!! Buy more clips. I have 4 clips to play with, after the 4 clips it is time for a air top off. Great beginner gun to PCP, or just a great addition for indoor shooting or small pest control.

    Powerful, comes pre-charged, love the feel of this pistol. The fact that it comes with a rifle stock is a big plus. Price was excellent. Excellent value. Best of all for me is that there are aftermarket parts you can add to customize it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wouldn't change anything

    What others should know:

    No sights whatsoever. Plan ahead and order a red dot or scope along with the purchase of the pistol. Also consider ordering extra magazines.

    What others should know:

    Great gun to get into pcp shooting without needing a large air tank or compressor. Hand pump friendly!

    Things I liked:

    Great compact little PCP. This is my first so I don't have a lot to compare it to. Very accurate so far with the testing I have done.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's loud, the description says it's quiet but I disagree. It's fairly loud versus something like a 1377. The magazine that came with it was not functional. It was assembled incorrectly and it could not be fixed without taking out the center screw and realigning the spring. Not too hard but unacceptable for something brand new that costs as much as this does IMHO. This seems to be a benjamin/crosman problem though. I ordered two additional magazines from a different site and one of them came improperly assembled as well. The tiny springs inside are a bit of a pain but overall it wasn't that hard to fix.

    Things I liked:

    I was finally able to shoot my Marauder pistol with the UTG Micro Red Dot, ( UTG red dot not available at PA). Awesome, lightweight, accurate, and very repeatable! I had originally wanted a pistol with iron sights, the Diana Bandit. But the order was taking too long so I cancelled that order and changed to the Marauder pistol. This change required additional purchases. Big Thanks to BB's blog, I chose the UTG Micro Red dot with the side loading battery. This is the only reason why I lowered the value to 4 stars. All in all, I am glad I switched to the Marauder!

    Things I would have changed:

    When I installed the supplied stock is was a little loose, even with both grip screws as tight as I dared. I ended up folding some heavy duty Aluminum foil to take up some of the gap between the stock and the grip frame. This took several attempts to get the thickness correct.

    What others should know:

    When the pistol arrived "THE SAFETY WAS OFF" !? Be sure to check the safety each and every time you pick up your airgun!

    Things I would have changed:

    Picatinny rail instead of 11mm Dovetail. Most Red dot scopes are the former and I don't care for adapters.

    What others should know:

    Tasco makes a cheap red dot from walmart that fits the 11mm dovetail. I've been shooting 20 yards with tight groups with this setup.

    It took me a long time to spend the money for a PCP. Could kick myself for not doing it sooner. This Marauder Pistol is amazing. Light weight and superb accuracy. The trigger is the best I have experienced out of the box. No need to make any adjustments. I would recommend this gun to be the first move into the PCP world.

    This gun has been out long enough that Crosman should have reconfigured the stock. Hard to find an optic that works. Have tried 7 still not satisfied. 2 magazines please.

    What others should know:

    Waited 2 years to purchase. Just couldn't justify the money for a 30 yard pistol. Don't be cheap like I was, get this gun it is worth every penny. I shoot this almost every day and enjoy it more than ANY gun I've owned. I had PA switch the bolt to the left for me. Excellent job guys bolt is like silk.

    Things I liked:

    Build quality and feel is good. I like the carbine option and it works well with a good reflex sight.

    Things I would have changed:

    OPEN SIGHTS! CMON! Its a pistol! I realize it will shoot great farther than I can see with open sights but I want to plink cans and targets from 5yds to 30yds. With that said, I have a reflex sight on it and it does work well. Still would like an open sight kit or option to keep it lighter, sleeker and have less to break or be fed batteries. I have the Marauder rifle as well but just know its got a little more bark in its stock form than the rifle.

    What others should know:

    Worth the hard earned $. Very happy with it. With a dot sight on and a rest I can consistently group well at 20-30yds enough to hit golf balls each time which is all I want out of this one. I have no doubt it will do much better if you scope it. The trigger was much lighter than I expected but good. I adjusted it to my liking easily via the instructions. Using the carbine stock and reflex sight it is a really nice quick and light squirrel gun.
