Things I liked: I love my .22 cal Benjamin Marauder. It is my go-to air rifle when I want to shoot anything from between 20 to 75 yards. I get 20-30 quality, consistent shots at approximately 910 f/s (26.5 f/lbs) using .22 cal JSB 14.35gr pellets. I also use a Leapers/UTG 4-16x44 AO Swat Mil-Dot 30mm scope with it. The combination of the two gives incredible accuracy. I love that its a 10 shot repeater!
Things I would have changed: I guess a little lighter in weight would be nice, but thats a function of the scope as well. The weight of the gun plus the scope is around 11 pounds. That can get pretty tiring after a while.
What others should know: I own a lot of pcp air rifles...several Airforce (Condor SS, Talon SS, etc), Hatsan (Bullboss QE, AT44-10 Long QE, etc) air rifles, and I love them all, but this is my go-to air rifle!
Things I liked: Very accurate rifle. Great trigger. Although being rather heavy, it's very well balanced and feels good in the hand.
Things I would have changed: The cocking design. Bolt lever with the spring tension needed for the .25 caliber is quite heavy. Can get used to but must be careful to fully engage the hammer or a second attempt could double load a pellet.
What others should know: Well worth it's price.
Things I liked: This rifle is real accurate, if you tune it right for the right pellet and the right application. I can shoot dime size groups at 50 yards on a calm day. I have taken 2nd place in hunter field target in my last two matches against a field of Daystates, Steyrs, and TM1000s at my local air gun club. The trigger is great when adjusted to your preference. I am shooting 55 good shots with JSB/AA 10.3 gr pellets at 890 fps, with an extreme spread of 11 fps over the shot string. The adjustable cheek piece works great.
Things I would have changed: The finish of the stock looks cheap and is not durable. I had to refinish the stock after one year. The ergonomics of the stock are not good for me, since the pistol grip is too narrow for my long fingers. The trigger pull weight in the stock configuration is too heavy for field target applications, but it does break crisply at 1.5-2 lbs. I also had to replace the barrel twice before I got an accurate barrel.The first two barrels had some nasty burrs in the breach that caused my pellets to scatter like a shot gun.
What others should know: It took me a year of tinkering with my Marauder before it shot competitively in field target matches. This gun is highly tunable and there as many after market upgrades that tune this rifle into a highly competitive rig. Tuning this rifle can be a little intimidating, but well worth the work.

What adapter should I buy to use it with a Hill MK4 pump? Is it included with the rifle? Thanks
Air Venturi Foster Female Quick-Disconnect... is what you will need
I have a Marauder for a couple years approximately 2500 shots. Today after several shots it started to malfunction. I repressureized to 2900 lbs but still it only puffs a small amount of air at each cycle. I reviewed the owners manual but there is not a troubleshooting section. What is my best next step?
Could be a few things. You sure there is not a pellet stuck in the barrel? If not, then I'd give Crosman or the PA tech department a call, they can help you trouble shoot.
I just received my .25 caliber Marauder and have not charged or fired it yet. Is it normal for the barrel to float inside the front barrel band? Mine is certainly not tight.
To fill your PCP gun:
1.Pick a source of air shown at right
2.If an adapter is needed, one will be shown
3.Add both to your cart to get hooked up
