Things I liked:

WOW need I say more about the 25 cal synthetic stock marauder! This year 2013 I have Purchased three break barrels pellet guns. And all three had barrel droop! Took them back, and got the most accurate pellet gun that I ever shot ! This gun is so powerful and so quiet when you shoot the first shot you may think its a weak gun from the lack of noise that comes from it. But you better have a good back stop for this gun. And it's still set at factory setting, I do plan on upping the power later on just to see what it's got.

Things I would have changed:

Two things, I would like little bigger air tank for a few more shots. And start making the SINGLE SHOT TRAY again! I like knowing if the 8 shot clip breaks , I can use that to make it Easy to to load a pellet in it !

What others should know:

Don't let the two things that I would change stop you from getting this gun! You will be sorry if you do. It is without a doubt a wonderful pellet gun for hunting small to medium size game. I am proud to be a marauder brother now !

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy with the LW barrel is incredible. Stacks ten shots inside a 1/4" at 30 yards of the bench. Lighter weight than most PCP rifles. Build quality is very good (not excellent) in this price point. Noise level is so low the pellet makes more noise hitting the bullet trap than the gun. Perfect for backyard target practice.

    Things I would have changed:

    More finishing/sanding of the stock seams and edges. Nothing major but a couple are annoyingly rough. Charge handle does not feel smooth. Might take some time to wear in but compared to my older Marauders this one is kind of stiff. However, at this price it is still quite acceptable. Safety lever could be better. Somewhere the was a change from older models to this one and it does not feel as natural anymore when selecting the firing position.

    What others should know:

    Accuracy does not seem to change much with different pellets but POI does. I found heavier weights can move the POI low and left almost 1/2" at 30 yards. Still very tight groups so adjusting aim to compensate is easy.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have the woods walker model which is much lighter than this one. This full size marauder is pretty heavy.

    What others should know:

    It dosen't like to feed the whole 10 round magazine. The last 2 or 3 pellets get pinched and won't load.

    Things I liked:

    If you are considering a PCP, just buy this one. It has plenty of power for squirrels, is quiet as a church mouse, and is incredibly reliable. I received advice to avoid regulators because of the increased complexity, and I ignored it. That was a mistake. Just buy this PCP airgun and you will be happy with your purchase. I would recommend the upgraded barrel, more for the scope mount that is much more universal than the dovetail mount that it's hard to find rings for.

    Things I would have changed:

    larger air take so that I don't have to fill it as often. Keeping it below (yes, below) 2500lbs seems to offer better accuracy.

    What others should know:

    I have a RAW airgun at more than 3x the price, and I prefer this one for most purposes.

    Things I liked:

    the accuracy was great at fifty yards. The gun is a pleasure to shoot. I love the power it has, I have killed prairie dogs and coons with it. It seams to like the jsb hades pellets best. Mine is a 25 cal

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish they would put a side lever cocking on it instead of the bolt action

    What others should know:

    if you are looking for power to hunt with, this gun will get it done

    This most accurate air rifle I have ever shot. I have tried 4 or 5 pellets in it so far every one have shot great. Crossman pellets shot the best. It shoots others good to It likes daisy pellets almost as good best air rifle I have ever had . great gun you need to pull the trigger and get it

    Things I liked:

    15 yard accuracy is good. Have not shot longer range as I am waiting on pellets

    Things I would have changed:

    Gun is heavy and stock is a little awkward to carry and shoot offhand.

    What others should know:

    I am not sure how to store this gun. Barrel moves if you lean it against a wall or rack. Not sure how it will affect accuracy over time. I wish I had bought the regulated version.

    Things I liked:

    Shot count (I am getting ~24 0.25cal shots with a full tank) Great Accuracy Powerful shots (can penetrate through 1.5" of pine wood easily) Minimal sound when firing Minimal recoil

    Things I would have changed:

    Rifle defects (described below)

    What others should know:

    I purchased the 0.25cal model. The first rifle sent to me was defective. It had shot groupings of ~8" from just 15 yards away, which as far as I'm concerned rendered the rifle useless. I was able to initiate a return through the Pyramyd Air website, print off a pre-paid FedEx return label, then drop off the packaged up rifle at my local FedEx. Within a week there was a replacement rifle at my doorstep and this rifle worked perfectly. I was getting consistent dime sized groups from 20 yards, something which I had seen from others on this website. Receiving a defective rifle the first time is the reason I have given this review 4/5 stars. The replacement rifle is easily a 5/5 star gun. For reference I am using a Bushnell Dusk & Dawn 3-9x 40mm scope with Benjamin 0.25cal pellets.

    Things I liked:

    Just got it set it up with scope bipod and sling to hang on wall got the lothar walther barrel start shooting on backyard wind blowing pretty hard still getting great accuracy 2600 psi to 1200 psi 3 mags im impressed very accurate and quiet just gotta get used on cocking it using crossman 14.3 cheap pellet but works good filled it 5 times my first marauder im happy

    Things I would have changed:

    Would be nice to have side lever by trigger have to learn power adjustments

    What others should know:

    2600 psi is the sweet spot just screw a picitiny rail on bottom and you got bipod i use a bag shoulder strap to hang on wall lol s wire to connect on strap fun to shoot

    Things I liked:

    This is a very accurate gun. I upgraded to the Lothar-Walther barrel mainly to get the pic rail. I added a 20 MOA rail to the front of the rail to get the scope far enough forward for shooting in prone. I like the adjustable comb especially as high as the scope ends up being to get it forward. The sling studs are sound. This is important as I shoot slung up tight in prone.

    Things I would have changed:

    The cover for the fill nipple would be tethered or have a place to hold it while filling especially in the field with the pump. The edges of the adjustable comb are sharp. I recommend rounding them off with some sandpaper or a Dremel tool

    What others should know:

    Get a degaussing tool. I suggest ordering a hard case as the bolt handles on both the first gun and its replacement were pushed through the inner and outer box wall. Make sure it is holding pressure. My first gun leaked! Pyramid Air took care of it.

    Things I liked:

    This is my firsts PCP air gun and it's head and shoulders above all the springers I've owned. No vibration at the shot and not hold sensitive like a springer. Of the pellets I've tried only the H&N crow magnum didn't shoot that well. It's nice to leave the ear plugs in the car when at the range. Definitely backyard friendly.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a little more viscosity but this gun is so accurate that I don't want to mess with it.

    What others should know:

    This rifle can shoot completely through a spray paint can at 35 yards.

    Things I liked:

    The Marauder is my first PCP rifle. My prior airguns are break barrel, I am very disappointed in the accuracy of the break barrel guns. The Marauder meets my accuracy expectations, I'm still sighting it in (only 20 rounds so far) shots are very repeatable. Weather kept me from shooting until yesterday, I've had it about two weeks., I cleaned the gun and mounted the scope then hand pumped the charge, hand pumping was easier than I expected. Charged rifle sat for a week until yesterday, no loss of charge, WOW. I am very pleased with the Marauder and the Hill hand pump.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, I read many reviews and the manual before buying, the Marauder is what I expected.

    What others should know:

    Magazine is easy to load. Gun operates as specified. It is necessary to pull the bolt all the way back to cock, I think I short cycled it once during my initial dry fire testing.

    Things I would have changed:

    Put the air pressure gauge on the side instead of the bottom so you can watch the pressure level as you're pumping.

    What others should know:

    Yes. I've been a competitive shooter since I was 12 and am now 62. I've never had a powder burner that was any more accurate than this is. At 10 yards it will put 10 shots through the same hole. I have yet to have any ammo i've tried (13 different kinds) shoot a larger group then I can easily cover with a dime. Now that the weather is breaking i'll be taking it outside for more long range testing. Excellent buy.

    I love just almost everything about my Benjamin Marauder!

    Things I would have changed:

    I think the gun is just a little to big and makes it a little awkward to maneuver around. The bolt on this one is rough when loading a pellet. My older model was very smooth.

    What others should know:

    In many cases, these guns shoot better than the shooter is capable of shooting. Never stop honing your shooting and safety skills!. You will unlock your guns true potential!

    Everything!!! Not too heavy, thanks to the synthetic stock. Lights out accuracy ( I bought the Lothar Walther barreled .177) stacks pellets. Easy to hand pump. I have two crippling diseases, attacking all my joints, and spine. I hand pump! Oh yea, NOT PELLET PICKY!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    I do not understand why anyone would pay $1130 and up for say a FX? Then another $50.00 for each magazine and another $300 for a scope. I forgot, $34.99 Barrel band. Total with 4 magazines. comes out to be $1665.00 + tax. 3 year warranty. When you can buy the Synrod with Lothar Walther Match Barrel W/Picatinny Rail, $579.99. 4 Magazines @ $15.95, $300.00 scope. Total 943.79. 5 year warranty. I f you want more shots per fill, $350.00 tune includes regulator. Now you get 80 shots, 20 fpe 10.5 gr on low setting, you can turn it up from there with heavier pellets. Do the math 943.79 + tune =1293.79 you save 371.21. Without tune you save $721.21. My point is you can buy the whole package for $186.21 less that the FX dream line gun itself. The Marauder is more reliable! If you wish, you can buy the .22 barrel, probe, bolt, and have dual caliber also. I saved quite a bit more, during their Christmas sale. Best of all, It is MADE IN THE USA....
