The Marauder Pistol, or P-Rod as some call it, is basically the same trigger and grip frame used on the classic 1300 and 2200 series Crosman pistols, topped with a Marauder action and with a shortened air tube and barrel. These little guns can be configured as either a carbine or a pistol and with a multi-shot rotary magazine and smooth bolt they make for a quick shooting lightweight package. Weighing in at just 3.7 lbs without scope, the Marauder pistol has become a very popular lightweight small game gun.
The stock and fore-grips are made of durable hard plastic, making them lightweight but still strong. The trigger and trigger guard are both cast metal and add to the solid feel. The rifled steel barrel is shrouded and does feature a fairly basic sound suppression system to help quiet some of the report of the gun. On the underside of the fore-grip is an easy to read gauge which makes monitoring your fill pressure a snap. The Marauder pistol fills directly from a foster style fill valve located at the end of the air cylinder with a snap on plastic dust cover to keep it free of any debris. The receiver is solid aluminum and has a milled 11mm dovetail rail for mounting optics as well as an ambidextrous bolt that can easily be switched to either the left or right handed position.

Not one to leave things alone, changed valve, spring, added a moderator, mil spec folding and collapsing stock and some chrony time, fine tuning now yields about 19 fte with CPHPS at around 800 fps, and JSB 18.13 at about 745 fps to yield over 22 fpe at the muzzle. I can still shoot 3 mags (24 pellets) per fill. Mouse fart quiet!
If you like customizing, tuning, playing around (beside just shooting) this is a very nice platform. Unlimited mods for this little toy!
