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:

    The accuracy of this pistol was great, and it was very easy to fill with a hand pump; however, it would not hold air, losing 500-600 psi overnight. Have returned it to Pyramyd, waiting on a replacement now. If it had been ok, I certainly would have given 5 stars in all categories. Had to give it only 1 star in the other 2 categories because it was faulty out of the box.

    Things I would have changed:

    As a lot of buyers have said, the shoulder stock.

    What others should know:

    All I can say at this point is that the thing was shockingly accurate and easy to manually pump. I have a Nomad II compressor which I use for filling my Condor, but the Marauder pistol was so easy to fill with a hand pump that I just used it for charging. If this gun hadn't had the leaking problem, I would say that it is a great value for the money. Hopefully the next one will be better.

    Nice little gun. Good trigger and magazine. With the butt stock on it shoots very well and if I could I would give 4 1/2 stars. Nice and light to carry.

    Things I would have changed:

    The safety could be metal but the plastic one seems durable.

    What others should know:

    It's a fun little air gun and easy to fill using a manual pump.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    This is my first and certainly not my last PCP airgun! I ordered this pistol because I was wanted a harder hitting unit than my Crosman pump pistol. This certainly provided that! I was also very pleased with the rotary magazine. I thought it would just be a gimmick, since I have been shooting air rifles for over 25 years and never had an issue with hand loading the pellet. The magazine is just so much more convenient, especially with the gun being able to fire right away after the last shot. The trigger pull is sublime - I thought that there would not be anything better than my old Diana model 35 but I was wrong. I am now looking at the Benjamin Marauder 22 rifle real hard!

    Things I liked:

    Watched a lot of videos and read a lot of reviews before buying this pistol and they all were spot on. This is a great airgun! Light weight, comfortable and very accurate. Buttstock had a little movement in it, but a couple of pieces of masking tape on the frame snugged it right up. Paired it with the Hawke Vantage 2-7x32 Mil Dot scope. Bought it for an ultra-compact pest control gun, but found it is the best plinking gun ever! I can't stop shooting! Need to buy more magazines!

    Things I would have changed:

    Include more than one magazine! Two at the very least.

    What others should know:

    I own a FX Wildcat MK2 and a Hatsan Blitz both in 25 cal, but this pistol is my favorite to shoot. I'm even thinking of getting a second one in case I wear this one out.

    What others should know:

    My house burned down in the california fires and I lost my pistol/rifle marauder and tank. Im Living in a trailer with little room. I bought the compressor instead of the tank because it was going to be almost the same price and I wouldn't have to fill a tank and have it inspected. My old gun took care of a lot of pests. It was one of the first things I replaced. I have other rifles but this is my go to gun and its really really quiet.

    Things I liked:

    I get 40 shots from 2800psi down to 800psi with 14.3 jsb, my most accurate pellet. Takes 5 min with slow pumping( for benj hand pump longevity) to fill from 1000psi to 2700psi. Adjustable power. Came stock with 6 turns hammer spring, 1 turn throw. I think its the best setting, check where yours is set at.

    Things I would have changed:

    Carbine plastic stock that came with it can get loose. Keep screws tight.

    What others should know:

    Peak power is around the 1500psi to 2500psi mark. Any psi higher then velocity is lower along with psi below 1500psi. Just use mil dots for high and low psi. I have a 4x16x40 scope, great for gun. Best accuracy is without doubt in carbine mode. Follow lubing instruction in manual. Use desiccant moisture apparatus with any hand pump to stop rust. It's my favorite gun.

    Things I liked:

    This pistol, with the included shoulder extension attached to it, making it into an extremely light repeater air rifle, is incredibly accurate! It is hard to believe that a 12 inch barrel with a Bushnell red/green dot scope, mounted on high Weaver scope mounts, will let you shoot out a two inch hole in paper at 50 yards using seven of the eight shots in the magazine. The fifth shot missed the group by a half inch when I twitched some. I only consider myself to be an average level shooting enthusiast, so it was the rifle that was making me look good (along with a lot of luck). My grandson was receiving this "family gift" last weekend, instead of a Crosman 2300T pistol that he really liked, but which was giving us trouble and had to be returned. It was just dumb luck that I purchased this pistol after seeing the glowing reviews by so many other customers writing reviews on the PA site. In ninety minutes, the paper we punched together was better than .22lr range groupings at 15 yards. WOW

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing! Crosman did what they had to do to produce an incredible, popular air rifle, and I was fortunate to check out everything in the lower price range when deciding on the first "current" air gun for my 13-year-old grandson. I spent more money than I intended to, but boy was it worth it! The Marauder's repeater feature makes it possible for Aiden to improve his shooting skills in much less time than the single shot ancient spring power RWS I had given him earlier could ever do. We used up a full tin of Beeman FTS copper plated 14.72 grain pellets during this "intro to pcp air rifles" shooting session, and during that time Aiden learned to use a 120 cu.ft. steel tank at 2300 psi to safely fill his rifle using an 8" fill whip. The three quirky magazines were filled at the same time, and shooting resumed. When our daughter picked her son up after shopping with my wife, she was also amazed at the accuracy of this rifle when her first standing group all landed in the 6" bull circle!

    What others should know:

    We are fortunate in the USA to have opportunities to engage in all sorts of leisure activities that can bring us joy while also keeping us healthy. Airgunners choose their activity preference for multiple reasons, but as a group of similar minded enthusiasts, we all try to choose equipment that provides the experience we are seeking from the activity. Crosman produced the entry level repeating Marauder pcp that meets the goal most of us seek: allowing for excellence in marksmanship while using basic equipment that is easy to use and not very expensive. The initial investment is around a thousand dollars, and is it ever worth every penny spent, for the joy it can bring to those with some level of shooting skill, and who also have enough space to engage in these moments of diversion from the worries of the day. For us, shooting with friends and family, or even alone at times, can be a healthy stress reliever when it demands all of our attention during those few seconds when we aiming.

    Things I liked:

    Outstanding performance and ideal for keeping in practice while nearby firearm ranges are closed due to COVID. Very easy to use! Very nice trigger! Much more accurate than I expected as a long time firearm user and first time PCP user.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing ... I am very pleased with this pistol.

    What others should know:

    If you use a manual pump with appropriate oil/water separator and not a compressor or tank , first time buyers should know the plus is you can give up all gym exercises by pumping up to 2500+ psi! Great workout!

    Things I liked:

    Ease of set up, light weight, quiet, accurate and powerful. I have the Marauder Rifle in .25 cal and love it...but it's quite heavy. I wanted something a little lighter for varmints getting into my chickens. I set the Marauder Pistol up with a Simons 4x32 scope and had it dialed in at 25 yards in less than 8 shots for two types of pellets. Shooting JSB Ultra Shock Diablo and Predator Poymag shorts. It took 4 or 5 shots to get dialed in then almost all holes were touching. The Ultra Shock shot just a hair under the Polymag (probably due to weight) but still super accurate. I haven't messed with the trigger yet but the trigger pull is extremely light and easy to squeeze off shots without pulling and affecting accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see this in .25 or .30 cal.

    What others should know:

    I fill with a Ninja 3000psi output regulator and fill station, works great.

    Things I liked:

    This is dead balls accurate. I fired 5 shots right out of the box before I mounted a T Dot optics. At 10 yards they grouped with in 3/4 inch, without a scope. I then mounted a T Dot and added a DonnyFl Tanto and it only got better. This thing is so much fun. I have 9 other air rifles, 6 are pcp's and this might just be the most fun I've had in a long time. I can see why they sell out so quickly. The shoulder stock is nice and tight with no wiggle like others have complained about. The action is very smooth, even though it's brand new.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don't understand why they didn't sell this with two magazines instead of only one. Your gonna want several.

    What others should know:

    Make sure you have plenty of 22 ammo because your not gonna want to put it down. I have a compressor to air my pcp's up with,but I decided to try hand pumping it. I'm 67 yrs old so no young stud buck, I aired it up from 1800 to 2900 in about 10 minutes. That's with a cheapo pump. So this is gonna be a blast to shoot.
