Benjamin Marauder PCP Air Rifle, Synthetic Stock
As the caliber increases, the gun becomes somewhat louder.
PLEASE NOTE: Marauders that come with the Lothar Walther Barrels feature Weaver/Picatinny rails instead of the 11mm Dovetail of the original.
*The owner's manual does not show the correct weight and length for this rifle.
The Benjamin Marauder air rifle is one of the most popular precharged pneumatic guns made today. The wood-stocked version came out first, but this synthetic-stocked version kicks it up a notch with a vertically adjustable comb and a whole bunch of improvements!
Most PCPs require 2,900-3,000 psi air pressure. You can run it on high-pressure air from 2,000 to 3,000 psi by making the adjustments shown in the owner's manual.
Since this air rifle is a repeater, it's one of the best hunting rifles you'll find. Attach sling loops and a sturdy sling to the mounted sling swivel studs so you can easily carry the gun for hours while in the field.
Remember to mount a scope, as this air rifle doesn't come with open sights.
Testing has shown that filling your Marauder air rifle to no more than 2,600 psi (179 bar) may deliver the greatest accuracy. We recommend trying different fill levels between 2000 and 3000 psi to determine the optimum fill level for your own rifle. Each gun is different. A chronograph is the best way to determine optimum fill levels for precharged pneumatics (PCPs).
The owner's manual states this about fill pressures:
"The Marauder has been factory set to an efficient fill pressure that will suit most hunting and target uses."
If you're left-handed and need the bolt moved to the left side of the rifle, please add that optional service to your cart when you buy your gun.

Things I liked: Good gun.
Things I would have changed: PYRAMYD is putting "Material: BJ MARAUDER 22 CAL LOTHAR WALTHER BARREL" on the tracking label on the outside of the box!!! First rep I talked to said no way does PYRAMYD do that , but the second rep that was female said that PYRAMYD might do that if regulations require it since it is " limited quantity" hazmat with compressed air and then ultimately hung up on me. I dont think the contents should be listed on the outside of the box for security reasons AND it's probably the reason My box was opened before I got it at my door!!!
What others should know: My box was opened and the RIFLE was taken out of the most INNER most box and the STRAPPING TAPE was already cut on the BENJAMIN logo box ! It was carefully retaped but the tampering was evident. Maybe it was ATTEMPTED theft or a "hazmat" content inspection by UPS because the box understandably had a "limited quantity" label. The fact the tracking label outside the box said "B.J. MARAUDER 22. LOTHAR WALTHER BARREL" , and that I can't get 2 PYRAMYD reps to agree if they so marked the label is what bothers me - especially being hung up on by the female rep! I have to say that I will want to buy high value products from a more discreet shipper or at a local store. The uncertainty created when I realized the box was TAMPERED with is worth paying more somewhere else.The RIFLE is good to go even though somebody handled it after it left PYRAMYD AIR.
Things I liked: Adjusted the port, spring and throw length to the values on my other two Marauders. Results were consistant at approximately 875 fps with an 18.13 grain JSB. Accuracy is great and probably slightly better than the other two Marauders. Get 40 plus shots per fill.
Things I liked: Very accurate with the Lothar Walther barrel. At 50 feet almost every shot touches, well within a dime with 50 shots using about 1000psi. Very quiet, sometimes the squirrels stick around after the 1st shot, neighbors never notice. Easy to use, can't wait to try it at 100yd paper target.
Things I would have changed: Nothing unless a bit lighter.
What others should know: This air rifle far exceeds my shooting abilities. If I miss, I know it's me.

I have to buy mine in Canada as it can't be shipped to me. I can get one here in Canada but the baffles will be removed. ,will this affect the accuracy?
No. Removing the baffles should have no impact on performance, only noise
GOOD DAY, YOU CAN SELL THE BARREL OF LOTHAR WALTHER ONLY, I HAVE A SYNTHETIC MARAUDER CALIBER .22, I WOULD LIKE TO BUY ONLY THE BARREL, GREETINGS.
Pyramyd Air does not currently list the barrels, you might be able to get one from Crosman directly.
Is there an air pressure regulator so that the shot speed is constant? if there is no regulator, how consistant is the gun w the fps? and will a 14 gr .22 pellet break the sound barrier?
This version of the Marauder is not regulated. While you can use the various adjustments to get the most consistency from your rifle, typically they will produce 15-20 shots in the sweet spot with extreme spreads around 25-30 fps. At least in my experience. In .22, out of the box, they don't break the speed of sound with 14 grain pellets. Certainly can if you cranked one up though, but I wouldn't recommend it
