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
Things I liked: This was my first pcp airgun but Ive shot firearms, airguns my whole life and owned several german spring piston airguns. This marauder opened my eyes to pcp and Ive also just purchased a bulldog, and plan on many other pcp purchases as well. Anyway, the Benjamin Marauder is fantastic. The synthetic is lightweight, easy to shoulder and point but made well. Ive picked up many synthetic stocked firearms that had cheaper made stocks. This synthetic marauder stock feels solid. Not hollow, thin, or chinsy like many others. It is utilitarian but beautiful.This gun is extremely quiet.The trigger is perfect and can be adjusted easily. Its incredibly accurate and the .25 cailber Is very powerful. I love that its a repeater. I love the pressure guage on bottom, away from barrel where it belongs, not right by the end of the barrel like Ive seen on many other pcp's. The mags are good, but they could be metal. Actions ok,its finally smoothing out. Great shot count and consistency for no regulator
Things I would have changed: DO AWAY WITH DOVETAIL MOUNTS, Please put Picatinny mounts on top and some more mounting options on the side of the forend or below it. Just somewhere up front where I can easily add a infared illuminator or light. Yes the armada is perfect for that but its not a traditional style rifle and cost alot more. The mags are ok and load quick but I wish they were metal. The one mag that came with the gun index's perfectly, the other 2 that I bought, Are a little finicky and sometimes I have to flick the mag with my finger when shooting to get them to cycle. The centerline of the gun could be a little lower which would allow the scope to be mounted lower. The gun should come with 2-3 mags instead of 1, and a degasser tool when bought. I cant say enough about how amazing this airgun is. Its absolutley brilliant. Get one!
What others should know: Ive put around three thousand rounds through it and it still puts a smile on my face everytime I shoot it. This gun is soo quiet that the sound of the pellet hitting paper or your target is louder than the gun. Its extremely accurrate and when using 31 grain H and N barricudas, or Jsb 33 grain diabolo King heavy (large skirt), I can stack pellets in the same hole at 30 yards here in my backyard. When I made my purchase only wood or black synthetic was available, but Ive seen '/crosman make several synthetic camo options. My only gripe is that I wish pyramyd had the full size marauder rifle (not the pistol)in the various camo patterns. So eventually maybe Ill get around to either buying a replacement camo stock and possibly a wood one, but If your thinking about getting one, dont think or put it off anymore. Buy it now!!! Its worth every penny and pyramyd air has been really helpful and they are just the best. Friendly, knowledgeable, curteous and caring staff.
Things I liked: Durability of the stock. Accuracy, Accuracy, again Accuracy. This thing is amazingly accurate and pretty quiet
Things I would have changed: I originally purchased with wooden stock for the look but changed to the synthetic stock to help with weight. Much better to just get synthetic from the beginning. This thing with scope can become heave and cumbersome.
What others should know: Overall great rifle. Squirrels don't stand a chance. Can hit 8 inch targets every time from 100 yards away on calm days and a solid rest. This little air gun is pretty great. Get an air tank and an adapter and don't bother with the hand pump. Also only comes with one magazine so order a few more when your checking out.

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
