Things I liked: My new marauder, what can I say. I am a perfectionist and I demand pure accuracy. I’m big into archery and I do not like anything to hit where I’m not aiming. This thing puts holes in holes and is extremely accurate. This rifle is about as close as you can get to a laser beam with its accuracy. I bought the .25 synrod and it is very quiet. It is much quieter than my both gamo swarm and silent cat. Neither of my two gamos are very loud either. This thing has been very backyard friendly for me. This was my first PCP and I use a hand pump. Pumping it up is not that bad if you are any kind of shape, I’m getting old and I’m about 175lbs, and it hasn’t been an issue for me. Don’t get me wrong, it is some work but it’s very feasible and who doesn’t need the exercise. Overall this has been one of the the best purchases that I’ve made in a while. It puts a smile on my face every time I shoot this gun because it just does not miss. I have no experience with the very high dollar PCP offerings but I just can’t see how you can get any better than shooting holes in holes as you can with this marauder.
Things I would have changed: Make the print of the instructions that come with it larger. I needed to by a scope just to read them.
Things I liked: This rifle is my be all end all. I wanted something with extreme accuracy that would actually hit exactly where I'm aiming. I bought the .25 model and I can easily shoot 3 magazines (24 shots) through the exact same hole at 30 yards on one fill. I havent had the opportunity to stretch it out to further distances yet but I just ordered a high dollar scope to do so. This rifle is very quiet. I have a gamo silent cat in .177 and a gamo swarm in .22 and the marauder is much quieter than both of those and neither of those are very loud by any means. All have been suburban backyard friendly for me so far but the marauder is much quieter. This thing has laser accuracy and it just does not miss, if it does its on you.
Things I would have changed: Maybe add some extra breech o-rings to come along with it for the just in case stuff happens moment.
What others should know: I absolutely love precision and quality, and this rifle has surpassed all of my needs. I shoot archery regularly and I do not get along with missing. This rifle is spectacular and does not miss.
Things I liked: American made, quality made, shoots as well as the 1,500.00 to 2,000.00 guns. I love them soo much that I have four of them. Gen1 in 25, Gen2 in .177,.22,.25cal. And a new p-rod. Get the patch-worm form 20/20 concepts and clean your barrels on these guns, you will find they aren't as pellet fussy as you thing. Especially the crossman pellets for shooting 25-50 yards. After 50 yards jsb, and H/N pellets are best. Get a chronograph and shoot lots of pellets for finding the perfect one. We have a berry farm. And use these rifles on a daily bases. They won't let you down. We have taken hundreds of squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, opossums with these rifles. They have enough power with good shot placement to get the job done. I use the hill mk4 pump to easily fill these rifles. It's a great pump 3000 psi no problem. I have these tuned for maximum power. They won't disappoint you!
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Put a good scope on these rifle. I'm using the vortec crossfire, and Nikon pro staff on all of them and I'm very happy with the results. Get a chronograph to test your pellets. Get a patch-worm to clean barrels. I don't clean anymore until accuracy drops off and so far it I've shot around 3000 pellets through the gen1 25cal and she is a tac driver

Who makes the barell for the .25?
What would the maxium range for hunting squirrels with the .177
Accuracy and your ability to shoot accurate will determine that... However, a 15-16 grain pellet at around 900 fps the .177 will have a muzzle energy upwards of 28 fpe, at around 100 yards it will have close to 12 fpe, and at 200 yards it will have around 6 fpe at 250 yards it will have around 5 fpe which is plenty to kill a squirrel.. Some say that it takes 5 fpe to kill a rabbit with a head shot so I am sure it takes less than that to kill a squirrel.. Most of us can't shoot well enough to even hit a squirrel at 250 yards.. So if your rifle can shoot 15-16 grain pellets accurately up around 900 fps then I would say that if you can see the squirrel and hit it then the .177 will kill it.. I hope this answers your question..
Do compressors have dry filters or desiccant? Just wondering how I'm suppose to keep my internals for my pcp dry from corrosion.
The area that would be most affected will be your storage tube, When you fire a PCP it generally will shoot out any moisture on the first few shots. The key may be to store your rifle after you have shot it and not to fill it up and then store it.. This would minimize the chances of any moisture being in the tube... (and not to move your rifle from the cold to warm etc where condensation may occur) Have some air in your tube and store the rifle in a dry room temp place or you can take all the air out and remove your tube and take the valve end or opposite end out and put a silica gel pack in and store it that way until you are ready to use it again (just make sure to remove the gel pack).. Most is common sense and it would not hurt to run a dry patch through barrel once in a while or you can put WD40 on a patch but remember to run dry patches to remove the WD40 prior to shooting..
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
