straight shooter trouble free
August 3, 2013
I have bought Crosman products for over 50 years. I don't have the time or sometimes desire to go out to a range, so wanted something legal as I live out but still inside city limits were powder burning arms are not allowed for recreation. recommend joining free the GTA airgun forum for lots of info on all and specific categories of air guns. this is a great forum. After cleaning the barrel, do not use a brass brush, nylon is best because there are a couple of rubber seals inside(find on-line). I used low mount rings and a 6-24x44mm side focus scope, the mag just clears this set-up with the front scope bell just 1-2mm above barrel. the lower the scope mount the better!. if you go with a 50mm scope, you will need med rings to clear. @ 30yds I was decimating the backstop, as the power of this was blowing through hardwood plywood thick on 2/3rd round. Mine shoots so straight, look like 1 hole off a rest. you'd never guess it because of the lack of noise how hard it hits. Definitely recommend a 22LR trap! my cat sits right next to me, couldn't care less! Quiet. YouTube for some possible easy mods you might like. I ended up buying the .22 after this, then the .177, then the Challenger target, then the marauder pistol, which shoots quietest/silent with Exact 18g, I wish i'd gotten the pistol sooner, it is real quick fill, flattens pellets to pancake with edges exploding off, superb trigger, light, mine is extremely accurate. you will be pleased! Remember most definitely clean barrel real good before 1st shot! Crosman folks are 100% U.S.A. support, always polite and helpful to me, I have called them different times in my life since I was a kid. I doubt you can get a truly better rifle with a good air gauge, quick fill installed, one mag, superb trig QUIET for = $ from anywhere else, with courteous U.S. backing free 800#. I haven't had a problem with anything on any of these products. Most Highly Recommend!!! buy a bunch of Benjamin dome pels to get free shipping w/rifle, this rifle luvs 'em, terror on vermin and very accurate. consider 1/2 extra mags and single shot adapter if you want extreme accuracy.
Vermin are history.
I have to buy too many pellets, I keep shooting them up too fast!

This is the gun you want! (.25 cal)
May 24, 2013
I guess you get what you pay for with a $500 gun. This thing is simply amazing! I've never shot a more accurate pellet gun in my life. The .25 will end any varmint eating your crops. Bought 2 extra mags which lets me know when I need to fill the high pressure air (hpa). The weaver kaspa 3-12x44mm topped it off good. The pressure gauge took a dump on me right away, but I got a paintball gauge which was the same size and available locally. Overall a great gun!
Accurate, light, smooth trigger, 8 pellets in a magazine, well made!
Pressure gauge is junk

awesome air rifle
March 25, 2013
Powerful and accurate. This is my first PCP rifle and now I will never go back to springers or multi-pump pneumatics. I may even consider buying this in a .177 or .22 for plinking.
Powerful. Accurate. Very quiet.
bolt is a tad hard to pull back. not many shots per fill (24 at stock power level)

Quiet Power!
January 12, 2013
I ordered this air rifle with the expectation it "may" be as quiet as the Air Arms S410E fac I used to own. Was I ever wrong. This rifle not only beats the AA S410 in the "quiet" department, it completely blows it away in the power department as well!! Although the AA was in .22 and this rifle is in .25, the difference in power is obvious. Right out of the gate, I'm getting 807 FPS with 31 grain Beeman pellets. That's almost 45 ft lbs on energy for small game (possibly even the coyote I'm stalking). If you purchase this airgun, please make sure of your backstop as it has more power than you may expect. Now for a warmer day so I can sight it in better and take some accuracy readings. Thanks for the advice Airgun Depot!
Power, build, quality, and price.

the best airgun
October 9, 2012
I have raved about this rifle since I first shot it at the SHOT Show this past winter. The quiet power and screaming accuracy tickled every part of my gun-loving soul, and I couldn't wait to sit down with one on my own time where I could really put it through the paces.
I love the wood and high quality.

U gotta get one!
September 4, 2012
This air rifle is AWESOME! You could ask a few red squirrels who made the mistake of trying to run for cover while we were plinking . . They had wiped out a nest of chickadees, so they paid the price! 46 yds to the base of the tree; 52 feet up. Range unknown - took 5 shots to dial in, but then 3 out of 4 shots were hits, including one which was peeking out of a hollow! Those would have been challenging with a rimfire. Lack of noise kept them hanging around until i got dialed in. Haven't shot serious groups with it - just a few for sighting in fired while sitting in a lawn chair. At 50 yards less than half inch - I expect more from a bench and wind flags!
Accurate, multi fuel
A bit heavy.

Benjamin Marauder .25
July 14, 2012
I have been holding off on buying a PCP air rifle for some time now. When I saw the Benjamin marauder was in .25 cal. I went for it. I have been shooting all sorts of air rifles for 40 plus years now and have never seen anything so accurate to date. Quality and finish is top notch for an under $500 airgun. And to think they are made in the USA and still cost in the $500 range, let alone made in NY state. I got the Benjamin air pump with it and let me tell you don't let it fall below 2000 PSI or the refilling is a workout, time to buy an air tank and use the pump as a backup. I have tried all sorts of pellets and all sorts of grain weights in the Marauder with mixed results. Mine likes heavier pellets with the gun set to factory settings. I fooled with the air settings only to return to factory settings as that is were the gun really shines. It is the most accurate/repeatable from 2800 PSI to 2000 PSI. The most accurate pellets are a toss up between the 27.8 grain Benjamin dome and the 31.02 grain H&N Baracuda round nose pellets. I have tried H&N 20.06 grain field target trophy pellets but they are to lite for the settings on my rifle. Once the PSI is down to 2800 100+ yard shots on a still night can be kept in the 1.5" range with ease. 20 yard is true one hole and at 65 yards I can hold better than 3/4" groups providing the air is still. I see were folks try to modify the Marauder in all sorts of ways, why is beyond me as Benjamin got this one rite on from the trigger to the barrel being choked on the .25. If I could change anything it would be to have a larger air tube for more shots and be just a tad lighter, other than that it is spot on. If you plan on using a pellet trap buy one made for a .22lr as this thing will make short work of a standard metal trap. I use a old archery bag target as a backstop because it catches the pellets well and holds up for a long time.
Quiet, accurate, quality and looks

Tack driver. Shoots Benjamin domes .500" c-c 30 meters. Crony tesed at 795 fps with 39 foot pounds of energy! My ballistics testing showed this rifle can take out small game at 100 yards that most box store bought .177 springers COULD NOT at only 10 yards! Now that's power. Get some.

Benjamin Marauder .25 cal
December 19, 2010
I bought this beast at AirGun Depot about 6 months ago and I am VERY pleased! This is nothing like the airguns we had when we were kids. The fit and finish, weight and feel is remaniscent of a 30.06 hunting rifle and it is pinpoint accurate. And talk about power! You know those tin bucket candles for outdoor use to keep mosquitos away from your picnic? ... 2 quarts of solid wax in a metal bucket? This thing put a 31 grain round nose pellet THROUGH the thing at 30 yards! NO DROP! I'm sure this thing has a tumble range, but I haven't hit it yet. Everything I shoot, it hits dead on. I've been shooting for over 35 years and I've never seen anything like this. And it is QUIET. The firing mechanism makes more noise than the report when you fire it. In short, I am amazed.

should i use air pumor air tank and what size tank would you use
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on January 31, 2012

You'll need a scuba tank or a 3 stage hand pump.

Is the optic included, or sold sep. If not inc, what is advised?

By cj from Whidbey Island, Washington on March 24, 2012
Hi guys, I have never owned a PCP air rifle, and am wondering how long it takes to pump up the tank if you use the hand pump. Is it an annoyingly long time, or just like a bike tire (e.g., no problem)? I don't have access to a scuba tank so I'd be using the hand pump for all my shooting. I want an air rifle for pest control, so I'm trying to decide between a spring-action single shot versus the Benjamin Marauder.
Thanks for any thoughts!

By Staff on March 29, 2012

It can be pumped up with the hand pump, but it does take a long time pumping. A lot of customer say they only use the scuba tank because it is to hard for them. But once you have it pumped you will have several shots before needing to repump it.

By Tom from Zacatecas, MX on February 21, 2012
Does the rifle come with the Benjamin pump? Is it realistic to even use the pump with this rifle?
By Staff on February 28, 2012

This rifle does not come with a pump though you can get one for it. Most people report they prefer the scuba refill as it is easier on the arms.

By Peter from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 1, 2012
Does this airgun come with a scope?
By Staff on July 2, 2012

No, a scope is not included with this air rifle.
