the .25 Benjamin Marauder is by far, one of the best quality PCP air rifles available now. (this, of course, is my opinion and is subject to debate,I’m sure.)

i have made no ‘mods’ to it other than a minor trigger mod and drill a hole in the stock to accommodate adjustment to the power regulator screw.

this rifle hits hard enough from the factory that i feel no farther ‘mods’ are in order (for me anyway) if more is wanted, one should consider going to a bigger bore, or possibly a powder burner. from the factory, i found by way of shooting at a tempered aluminum, frying pan: it will nearly penetrate the fry pan bottom from 50 yards. that may not impress some, but it surely does me…

shot count could be better but what does one expect when shooting this large of a bore? more power requires more air; it’s that simple.

accuracy is astonishing, too. i was able to have the .25 caliber JSB’s in a clover leaf hole at 50 yards within a few shots.

power, accuracy and QUIET, too boot. the factory shroud is more than adequate to make it “neighborhood friendly” (as far as the noise factor is concerned…discharging air arms in many areas is categorized along with firearms so be sure to check local laws.)

I’m quite pleased with my .25 Marauder.

The .25 marauder has turned out to be one of the most accurate air rifles iv ever shot. I have kept mine bone stock. The wood was so smooth that I had to look twice to make sure it was real. The gun has no “blueing” it is anodized black which looks flawless. The gun is very quiet and has no kick at all yet it packs a serious punch with the huge .25 pellet. Gun shoots at average of 40 or 45fpe. I find that after 2 clips, it takes ten easy pumps on the hand pump to charge the pump hose and 20 or 25 furthur pumps to get gun back up to 3100psi. It seems to use a lot less air after its breakin and using heavy pellets. With stock settings and at 25 yards, i get an easy 24 or 30 shots (starting from 3100psi) with no noticable pellet drop. With practice, the benjamin hand pump is easy to pump the gun with. The gun is also very balenced and easy to hold on target. Be carefull, with the bolt action and 8 shot magazine, you will go through a lot of pellets fast.

Let the results speak for themselves-“ask the man who owns one”. The .25 caliber Marauder is my newest gun. Offhand, I can shoot 1/4 inch CTC at 25 yards. I can assure you, the gun is more accurate than I am. Very powerful, 42 fpe with H&N Barracuda pellets. I can get about 20 full power shots before I refill the gun (1200 psi remaining pressure). I’ve seen more expensive European guns without a manometer, so this manometer is an awesome feature. The eight shot magazine seems to be a Theoben copy, but it works. For $425, this is an excellent value. The bluing on the metal isn’t the greatest, but Crosman’s aim of an affordable, powerful, and accurate PCP rifle with many features has certainly been met.
