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.
Things I liked: BP1763 bought 2/2013 updated to 1764 5/5/18 - A Beauty BACKGROUND The BP1763 with Leapers UTG 30mm SWAT 3-12X44 AO is a predecessor of the current BP1764W. On May 5, 2018 I replaced the valve assembly 1764-100. I get about 40 shots per fill to 2750 PSI. Tech specs say 30. I appreciate this rifle enough to attempt the valve assembly 1764-100 replacement above. Learned a lot and worth the effort. REVIEW OF BP1763 with latest Valve Assembly 1764-100 May, 2018 See detail review at Crosman website:: https://www.crosman.com/marauder-rifle-wood-stock BP1763 2/2013 updated to 1764 - A Beauty (Crosman does not date review. I submitted May 5, 2018) I have put this rifle through its paces at an Appleseed Shoot in North Berwick Maine on September 12, 2015 and reached Rifleman classification with the BP1763 (original valve) - a unique accomplishment with a pellet gun and a testament to BP1763 quality. See Crosman review for pictures of scuba tank and rifle at the firing line. My wife thinks the rifle deserves “Protector of the Garden with Oak Leaf Clusters. The rifle is our honorary top garden tool. To all at Crosman - Nice job.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: Invest in a scuba tank and a two wheel dolly. As painful as it is, a scuba tank gauge ($100 +) is helpful to determine the tank internal pressure when you will need to refill scuba tank. Yes, I did choke down a tank gauge. Gulp,. The Crosman K Valve adapter for scuba tank does not measure internal scuba tank pressure. I will step up to a 4500 PSI carbon tank (CT) to reduce weight. Getting older but not stronger. My existing Crosman adapter hose is short. I am working with a local dive shop for a longer adapter hose for the CT. I need to do some more work here for cheapest method to measure carbon tank internal pressure to determine when to refill CT.
Things I liked: Extremely accurate out of the box, shooting at a water bottle lid i was ablle to put 18 of 20 pellets in the lid at 30 yards. Have not shot past 30 yards yet. Other reviews i saw made it seem like the .25 caliber was really loud, I have not found that to be the case. Trigger is nice and smooth and there zero recoil.
Things I would have changed: I wouldnt change a thing with my marauder. I have put around 100 pellets (JSB Exacts) and have had zero issues.
What others should know: Can easily be used as backnyard plinker. At 30 yards i set my gopro right below the target. I cant hear the rifle when i shoot but i can hear me cycling the bolt to chamber the next round. I find i get around 18-20 shots to a fill before i see a drop off in accuracey.

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.
what pellet weight are you using to specify 900fps? (25 cal)
