How do you make a great gun even better? You listen to the customers and do what they asked! In this case, that's adding a synthetic stock to one of the most popular precharged pneumatic rifles made today. Crosman listened and not only put a synthetic stock on the Benjamin Marauder, but they gave it a vertically adjustable comb, too. You'll get a lot of powerful shots that will let you rid your backyard of pesky birds and critters. Don't worry about noise scaring your prey or alarming the neighbors...it's one of the quietest air rifles ever made.

Once you go PCP, you'll never go back
September 6, 2017
I was a break-barrel guy for years, but I never found one that was truly accurate. In my opinion, break-barrels suffer from two major problems: 1) The scope does NOT attach to the barrel so the zero can easily change over time. 2) The barrel is very short when compared to the overall gun length. The Marauder PCP has neither of these issues. The scope mount and the barrel are fixed and the barrel length is nearly twice the length of most break-barrels. However, PCP air rifles come with their own challenges. The first being cost of entry. Not only do you have to purchase the PCP rifle with STARTING prices around $500, but you have to purchase some way to charge (pressurize) the PCP cylinder. The lowest cost way to charge a PCP is with a hand pump. The STARTING price of a hand pump is around $150 and the better ones are two to three times that price. Using my Benjamin hand pump to charge my Marauder to 2600 psi is a time consuming workout. True, after the initial charge you only have to pump from ~1800 psi to 2600 psi, but it still takes time and a lot of effort. The other way to charge a PCP is to purchase a special 4500 psi air tank and have it filled (for a fee) at a dive shop or paint ball shop. The air tank costs START at around $300. You can also purchase a special high pressure pump but those START at around $1,500. However, if you have the resources to join the PCP club, you will be hooked. After mounting a cheap $100 scope on my Marauder and zeroing in the scope, I am able to shoot quarter size groups at 25 yards all day long. My Marauder is in 0.177 caliber so I get 50 to 60 shots before I have to recharge. The 10-shot magazine on the Marauder is such a pleasure after coming from single shot break-barrels. I'm using cheap Crosman Premier 10.5 grain pellets so I could probably tighten my groups by going to a heavier JSB pellets. At this point I've only sent around 100 pellets down range, so the barrel is probably not completely broken in. I'll probably hold on to my springers and my nitro-pistons, but I doubt they'll see much use now that I have "gone over to the dark side".
Pros:Accuracy and repeatability at 25 yards plus High muzzle velocity and knock-down power Quick change ten shot magazines Being able to get off a follow up shot in two or three seconds Basically zero recoil Very little noise
Cons:Cost to get started Weight of the gun

It's a little bit heavy, nice fit for big man,I am a light weight 70 yrs.old guy and 145 lbs.Pumping this riffle up to 3000psi with the hand pump no problem,I mean no problem.Other than that the riffle shoot very nicely from 10 yards to100.The gun is so quiet sometime I thought something wrong.You buy you won't be disappointed and I won't...
Pros:Good balance, very accurate
Cons:heavy (for me).I don't understand, the riffle is rated to 3000psi why the the factory only set it at 2500psi,it should tuned to shoot good and set exactly like it said-3000psi so we the buyer don't have to bother doing anything.I am not a gun smith and/or an experience air gunner so I have no choice but to use it as is.
