Things I liked: Everything except for the synthetic stock-- this rifel has amazing accuracy -- i can stack pellets at 30 yards - also hits MUCH harder then my break barrel benjamin XL NP 725-- at 15 yards the mauradr will be going all the way thru 3/4 inch plywood --love that its light - its very quiet so the power can be deciving -- i highly recommend this gun-- i can easily see why its so popular.
Things I would have changed: Make the synthetic stock a higher grade -- feels a bit to plastic.
What others should know: Shoots a carnicopia of pellets .. pick your fav & sight it in . If using a hand pump,i found 50 pumps equal 16 shots ... spend the money & just get a tank .. more so if your pushing 50 -wink-
Things I liked: 1st and foremost, the service from PA. This was an early Xmas present on Black Friday. Paid for the 20 for 20 service - they installed and zero'd the scope purchased, chrono'd the gun (got the 0.22 cal) and stuck it in a case.
Things I would have changed: Nada.
What others should know: Pulled it out of the case, loaded up a mag, hand-pumped it up to 2500 psi (it came right at 2000 psi) and fired at 10m just for grins to see what I got for $20 extra. Literally didn't do anything else. It shot about 1 inch high, but the CTC for 10 shots was 0.38" using Crossman Premier HP (14.3gr). Those were the 1st ten pellets I pulled the trigger on after a single test fire I had hand-loaded into the breech (to set a point of aim on a piece of scrap composite board). I'll load the picture of the group.
Things I liked: Everything. If you want 1/2" groups and consistently this is the best gun for the money. Skip the break barrel and take the plunge you will save money in the long run.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Fill pressure is crucial. Filling to 2600 does yield the most consistent shot group for 30 rounds.

How hard is it to pump this to 3,000 psi and to top it off after shooting
I have the chinese copy of the Air Ventri G6 (probably not a copy since I'd bet that's where AV gets theirs). 0-3000psi=270 pumps. 2000-3000 90=pumps. 2200-3000=70 pumps. Pumping is not easy, when up around 2500 or so my body weight of about 185 cannot compress the pump the last bit where it's actually putting that air into the gun. So about half way down the stoke I have to lock my arms and take my body weight off my feet to literally fall on it to get it to fully pump. So imo if you use the gun to shoot a pest here and there then a hand pump is ok. If you plan on shooting targets or misc plinking you will not like it. I also suggest getting the hammer debouncer because without it the gun is louder and wastes a lot of air. A 3000psi scuba tank is not good enough since the gun cannot be fully charged even once with it. You really need a 4500 tank which are expensive and often hard to find a place that can fill them. An elect pump is sweet but expensive and you're tied to electricity. Ideally I'd want the elect and a 4500 tank so I could charge it myself and take it with in the field. Pump, tank, gun and accessories would then be up past $2000...
For me or you? LOL. With an MK4 it took me about 300+ on an empty tube. And about half of that from 2000psi back up to 3000psi. I simply did that as a test. I actually use a compressor and SCBA for filling and the pump as a backup.
Are the Marauder Pressure Tubes interchangeable between Gen l and Gen ll rifles?
The part #'s are different so my guess is something is different. Maybe the change is not important, maybe it is. If you look at the gen 2 guns parts list you can see the old #'s start with 1763 and new ones 1764. Parts lists are on Crosmans website, lower left of main page "owners manuals".
Other than green mountain! Who makes a .25 barrel's for the marauder gen 2
