Overall, I am impressed with the power and accuracy of the gun. I get pretty small groups at 35 and 50 yards with good power. e.g. hitting a metal spoon at 35 yards seriously deforms it. It is pretty heavy so I try to use a rest when squirrel hunting but have taken some with off shoulder shots too. I pump it when it drops to 2000 psi--it is a bit of a workout to get to 3000 psi but not too bad. Easily get 60 or more shots for that 1000 psi.
ProsAccurate Good power Lots of shots per 1000 psi

Best PCP Pellet Rifle
September 17, 2019
This is the best quality PCP Pellet rifle I've ever seen. Top quality components and easy to use.
Salt Lake City, Utah
My take on the Benjamin Maruder.
August 3, 2019
I am very pleased with this pellet gun... Very accurate, very powerful, definitely recommend. Great gun for the price. I was using a Gamo Whisperer bone collector before this gun and the difference is night and day. I have a tin plate about as thick a furnace duct and the gamo (rated at 1300 fps) would put a healthy dent in it at 150', the marauder (rate at 1000 fps) punches right through it no problemo. Great scope, clear, bright, easy to dope. No jarring recoil like the Gamo, and the 10 pellet clip makes shooting fun again.
ProsNice, easy trigger pull. Great scope, Accurate, powerful. Ten round clip works great, order an extra one or two because your going to have so much fun shooting you'll not want to be bothered with reloading.:)
ConsI feel that the barrel mount at the end is poorly designed, it actually has a gap were the barrel floats in it with about 1/16" of an inch on top and almost 1/8" at bottom. The barrel it's self is light weight and actually moves if you lean it against something. Not really a good design in my opinion, barrel mount should hold it absolutely secure. I solved the problem by filling in the gap with a hot glue gun on the barrel mount, and also ran a strip of hot glue for about 6" in between the barrel, and the air tank. A little hillbilly but hey, Problem solved. Benjamen needs a better system in my opinion because you can't really lean it against anything without it either leaning on the barrel, or the scope. Neither are good for keeping your gun's accuracy from changing.
Best UsesTarget practice, rodent sniping and the like.

Maybe not worth the money
July 29, 2019
I've had the combo for only a couple days. Not thrilled like most other reviews. Biggest prob is that filling the chamber is a giant pain in the butt. I had a local paintball shop fill the carbon fiber tank, but the tank wouldn't take more than 3k psi. The local dive shop doesn't have the adapter necessary to fill the tank or the gun. Dive shop compressor tops out at 3k psi so I can't fully load the 4.5k psi tank even after buying the fill station adapter. So far I've been shooting between 2,500 and 2,000 psi. I REALLY want to shoot at the top of the range. A hand pump costs well over $100, and I already have $800+ into the rifle kit, so not eager to spend more big bucks to work my ass off just to shoot. A scuba tank is a couple hundred bucks, too. It will be over a grand to really set up the gun. Next, it's not nearly as quiet as what folks report. Not much quieter than my Gamo and Ruger spring guns, so don't believe all that "silent" talk, it makes plenty of noise. The gun and scope weighs a ton, not a good choice for walking the woods for critters. My .177 Gamo weighs about half and with a disciplined hold I can hit any squirrel I can see. Now the good....it's very, very accurate. The trigger (not tuned so far) is excellent. I knew how heavy the rifle is and holy cow, with a good rest this gun is a tack driver. And that's really my highest standard and why I will prol keep the gun. I'm sure that I can't ever consistently shoot a spring as well as a pcp. All in all, I could have spent $800+ on a very fine bolt action .22 rifle and shot shorts. Hmmmmm....I'm sending this gun back, not worth the money.
July 9, 2019
This combo does exactly what I intended it to do! Rodent/pest control! Coupled with the compressor I purchased, it is hard to beat.
ProsAccurate, I sighted in at 35 yards... Easy to recharge, load and shoot...

I've been shooting a Sheridan for about 35 yrs. Heard about these pcp's. Little disappointed with a few scratches on the stock but when you mail order well i guess you get what they send. However it's a very accurate rifle i can head shoot birds 30 to 40 yards. I've had this mrod less then a month so far my best shot is ground hog at 94 yds. Would have never done it with the Sheridan, even though the Sheridan has took squirrels at 20 yd. Very impressed with my mrod.

First PCP airgun
January 24, 2019
The rifle is out of this world accurate! After cleaning to bore and checking for any bolts and screws. Finding everything in perfect order, I filled the reservoir to 3000 psi. First group of five duplicated the test target sent with the rifle (all in one hole). Needless to say that got my attention. Used the JSB18.13 and first group was at 10yds. After a bit of gleefully jumping around, I fired two five shot groups at 30 yds. More jumping around! First group went into target at .255 with the second group producing .262. I purchased this rifle to squirrel hunt with and I believe we have that issue covered with rifle. I used no special procedures to produce these results as it was cold and I threw a boat cushion on top of the bench and went to work. Trigger pull is fantastic, gun is so quiet it left me wondering if it had actually fired on the first shot (it did) stock looks great. Really cool part, it arrived one day earlier than stated. Thanks to Air Gun Depot for their excellent service in processing this order. WOW. Purchasing one of these Marauder's has only made me wonder why I haven't ordered the .25 cal. yet.
ProsThe gun works! Period!
Best UsesIn the .22 caliber with the above stated accuracy, the Benjamin Marauder will do anything you need to do. Get one from Air Gun Depot and see for yourself.
Better than their older ones
December 30, 2018
Got a good barrel! Came with a target supposedly shot at the factory, so I guess they may have solved that occasional bad barrel problem. This 22 shoots as well as my 25. Can't wait to bag a hog with this beauty. Nice wood, and consistent groups. Sub 3" at 100 yards. 1" at 50 yards. One hole groups at 40 yards. Except for cleaning the barrel it's like it came right out of the box. I'm using a 3-12 bug buster, but may swap to a larger objective lens scope. This has the accuracy for a 4-16X50 scope. Soda cans at 100 yards are no problem. Even laying down with only the bottom showing. Loves 18 grain pellets. This is an excellent rifle shooting as well as some much more expensive rifles.
ProsPrice. Excellent magazines. Very consistent shooting for a non regulated gun. Mine is very accurate. Love the wood stock.
ConsCould come with a single shot tray.
Best UsesTarget. Plinking. Hunting. Just an excellent PCP rifle.

If you're looking for a starting point for PCP this one would be it. I chose .22 and have no regrets. Accurate and comfortable. I bought the full package, because that's what I do when I buy a new airgun. Accuracy is first and foremost and this rifle delivers that accuracy It's a versatile rifle to target shoot or hunt with. I enjoy shooting it and will never get rid of it. All around great air rifle.
Pros2 stage match trigger, easy on and off safety' Accurate out of the box, The price is right, comfortable to hold.
Best UsesHunting or targeting... You'll have fun.
Benjamin Marauder .25 cal, synthetic premium
October 12, 2018
Excellent balance, excellent stock reconfiguration capability, excellent pressure seal, and most of all accuracy. The scope is certainly much better than expected, and very functional. The adjustable objective lens certainly takes out the parallax issues.
ProsGreat purchase for a first time PCP Air Rifle. The .25 cal hits hard and has certainly variable weights to choose from for hunting, target shooting, and plinking. Airgun Depot certainly lives up to their reputation and well worth taking the chance to purchase your air rifle needs.
ConsNone so far...

What a nice air rifle - Awesome
October 4, 2018
Excellent - easy to understand and operate - lots of power for a 22 - multiple pellet selections which makes it very versatile. I like all the support videos available too - I need that.
Pros Powerful and versatile - accuracy is superb - feels good in my hands - comes up nicely to aim point and trigger is excellent right out of the box(got lucky here)- 6x24 mildot a great match on here is perfect.
ConsWish they would send a degassing too with it - and the new depinger is good for noise reduction but sounds like a bell - 2" piece of vinyl tube takes that out.

July 13, 2018
The Marauder is my first experience with PCP and I do like the Hunter combo with the CenterPoint Scope and AirVenturi 90ci bottle. For under $1000, It's a good entry level combo to get you started PCP'ing. So far I've been able to shoot pretty decent groups at different distances out to about 50 yds. and believe I'll be able to extend that to 75 to 100 yds with a little more practice. The rotary magazine takes a little getting used to but once you master loading the magazine, you're off and shooting. I haven't made any adjustments to the trigger and right out of the box, after mounting the scope and sighting-in, I'm pretty impressed. I'm a little uncomfortable being around high pressure when charging the gun, but being cautious and just getting familiar probably just takes a little time. I've recharged the PCP about 10 times on one fill of the bottle and I'm getting about 16 - 24 shots before recharging. Not sure how many total charges this "pony" bottle will hold, but it seems fine for a day out hunting. I'll probably get a larger bottle or find an inexpensive compressor to refill it myself. I would definitely recommend this combo for getting into PCP shooting.

Powerful, Accurate and Unbelievably Quiet
July 3, 2018
I'm very impressed so far. After mounting the scope, I sighted in inside my 4 car garage. The loudest sound was the pellet hitting the 2x8 behind the target. After about 30 shots, it was roughly sighted in and needed a longer range for fine tuning, but before I could do that, a few pesky ground squirrels wandered into my pasture. Three shots, three dead squirrels at about 35 yards. Batting 1000 so far. Now, the loudest thing was the hammer strike. Just a little metallic click -- unbelievable! The scope is also great. It is a variable 4x16 with an adjustable objective and lighted crosshairs in red or green with adjustable intensity. Fantastic combination. I also love the 10 shot magazine for follow-up shots (none necessary so far). I bought a large air tank with the rifle and filled it at the local dive shop, clearly the way to go if you can afford it. I had to call in for help about the operation because I didn't realize that the substantial hammer spring cocking occurs while pulling back on the bolt. The telephone help was also very satisfactory.
ProsReally accurate, Unbelievably quiet.
ConsIf you need to carry it hunting, it's a little heavy but it does come with a nice sling.

PERFECT FOR SMALL GAME HUNTING

This is my 3rd Marauder. I have two Gen 1 Marauders and I wanted a lighter .25 cal for hunting. Once I got it I already knew I wanted to camo it up. I own several air rifles and these 3 my most accurate. I was impressed by the improvements of the Gen 2 Marauder and decided to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed.
ProsLight Weight, Power, and Accurate.

May 26, 2018
Instructions were good, operating and setup. This was the first PCP style air gun I have owned, and it worked as expected. I had 2 spring caulk rifles before and both destroyed the scopes I had for them. The new air gun has no recoil and has all the power needed for dispatching critters even large woodchucks. It is very quiet a small twang as air recharges for next shot. I charged cylinder up to the recommended 3000#. It was very easy with the three stage manual hand pump that came with it. I am testing to see how long and how low I can go. So far I would say I have gone thru 150 plus pellets and the pressure is just below 2000# on the gauge. Still is very accurate and has the power to do the job. Very pleased with the performance.
Best UsesTarget and varmint.

Shot about 100 rounds though it and it's great. Air Gun Depot shipped it fast!
ProsExtremely accurate Nice trigger (like it better than my .22 Marauder) A lot more knock down power than the .22 Quiet - But a bit louder than the .22
ConsThe butt plate is the most uncomfortable I have ever had. It's odd that the .22 Marauder (wood stock) has a great butt plate. I replaced the .25 with an adjustable padded one, It burns up the CO2 a lot faster than the .22 Marauder - a lot faster It is relatively heavy but I'm not lugging it around. I shoot off my raised deck.

Just got this PCP and a hand pump. It does take a bit of a workout to get it to 3k psi, however, once you're there, it doesn't take too much to keep it between 2k - 3k psi. Only had the chance to roughly sight it in, however, it is EXACTLY what I was looking for in a backyard air rifle - super accurate, super powerful, and super quiet - I'm amazed at just how quiet this gun is! It's pretty heavy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything else I've tried - worth every penny.
Second Marauder Does Not Disappoint
May 12, 2018
I bought the second Marauder for various reasons. It performs as the first one I bought. Within the box the rifle came in was a target showing a 5 shot at 10yds. My shots at 25 yds were just about the same. I have noticed that the pressure gauge has NOT indicated a full 2800 psi fill. I have the 90 ci tank with 4500 psi but when I fill my Marauder, the air gauge ONLY shows a rating of 2500. I feel that Crossman should make sure that ALL parts are working properly before sending them to the customer.
ProsGood for residential use, very quite, nice woodstock with the engraving and finish. P.S. would recommend a tripod and good scope.
ConsCrossman needs to address the O-rings within the workings of the gun. Holding air pressures of 2800 psi, with the close tolerances is hard on them. The fill adapter on the first gun went bad after 15 months. The slide in clips needs to be looked at as I tried to load a Diablo .25 pellet to be fired. It got jammed halfway between the mag and the barrel. I had to drill the mag apart to get the damaged pellet out. The pellet (recommended by Air Gun Depot) had a burr on it, just enough for the bolt to catch it and twist it sideways & jam! There must be a easy way to get these mages out by not destroying them.
Best UsesGetting rid of squirrels that have eaten my boats wiring, even making head shots at 78 yds.
I love this one
May 5, 2018
Been shooting BB Guns, pellet rifles for 50+ years. This is my first PCP. Took me a while to ge a good compressor. Made it hard to use, scuba shop only went up to 3000 lbs on my tank. Finally have all the accessories I need (compressor). This gin does a 4 inch group at 100 yards, in a 10 mph wind! Knocked a skunk down at 75 yards in one shot. I love my Marauder!
Pros8 hot clip Work’s flawlessly. Incredible knock down power. This Combo is the way to go, the Venturi carbon fiber tank, 20x50 scope with lighted rectifies. Plenty of shots on one 3000 lb charge. The tank at 4500 psi can keep you going all day long, maybe 50-60 shots.

Good Product for the money
April 10, 2018
I bought my marauder about 19 months ago. i am pleased with the rifle but after 19 months, I have encountered problems with air leaks, first around the fill adapter. i am pleased that Crossman did send me a free adapter. After installation, that did NOT solve the issue of falling air pressure over night. After much thought, I must remember that we are dealing with HIGH air pressure being contained by rubber o-rings. I think the engineers should look into doubling the o-rings where possible every where in the gun. It does well for what it designed to do. I still would buy it again as my current air rifle is at the repair shop. My Marauder would hit a squirrel at 70 yds. in the head. Yet, at 70 yds, that head is not that big. I recommend this product but would like to see Crossman stand behind their product DIRECTLY for repair(s), instead of regional repair agents.
ProsNice wood grain stock, great scope, sling and tripod
ConsAir leaks become frequent after about a year
Best UsesVery accurate once you sight in your asope, very quite for residental use

Great starter PCP
March 29, 2018
I only started airgunning recently, starting off with an ultra inexpensive Crosman 1077, which uses small CO2 powerlets. Within weeks I was already modifying the 1077 with bulk co2 paintball tank adapters to get more shots and consistency, sound reductions, and other tweaks. I got bit by the airgunning bug rather quickly and my modifications all pointed towards the PreCharged Pneumatic experience. PCPs offer all of the consistency, accuracy, and volume of shots that I was looking for that I could not get out of a CO2 platform. I went with the Benjamin Marauder "SynRod" with hand pump so that I could get to shooting immediately. No additional purchases necessary (yet). The Marauder hands down delivers on all of my expectations and then some. Out of the box, the accuracy and shot grouping is phenomenal. No POI shifts or significant droop, like what I experienced with CO2. Trigger pull and feel is excellent and predictable. In .177 it is absolutely quiet except for the twang/ping of the air tube. Loads of adjustments for trigger pull and valve pressure to make fine adjustments, which satisfies the tinkerer and tuner inside me. Since the Marauder platform is so widely used, there are tons of mods available and my 3D printer will be getting some use customizing this rifle. I'm a larger guy at 6'0 and 240 lbs so the hand pump is not a problem. About 90 very easy pumps to 2000psi which is suitable for low pressure plinking. I incorporate pumping with the handpump with performing excercise, not unlike the motions for doing bodyweight squats. With the pump as close to my body's center, keep back straight, bend at the knee, arms locked to exert body weight on handlebars, primarily using glutes and thighs to raise and lower body weight, with abs for stabilization. A tidy workout with shooting as the reward. Looks a little goofy, sure, and you use more muscle groups in the process, but it works for me and I feel like I got a good exercise in, rather than just doing physical busywork. Proper form is a must-- if you try pumping the handpump while hunched over-- I wouldn't be surprised if someone threw out a disc. This Marauder combo is a great entry point into PCP and I'm looking forward to years of enjoyment out of it.
ProsAccurate Consistent Highly Tunable Lots of support for modifications
ConsThis rifle isn't particularly heavy, but it is very bulky. Would like to see Crosman/Benjamin offer a wider variety of stocks with differing ergonomics.

March 5, 2018
I pulled this out of the box and literally shot one hole groups. Amazingly quiet, accurate and well made air rifle. For those that are trying choose between .22 and .25 some say the .25 is more accurate since the barrel is made by another company and is more accurate than the .22. Part of this misunderstanding comes from pellet quality. Essentially all .25 pellets are premium or match grade quality. there is more variation in .22 pellets. Once you identify the right pellets for your Marauder, you will find that the .22 is every bit as accurate.
January 31, 2018
Been shooting air rifles and firearms for over 53 years. The Marauder is the keenist product to come along in a long time. Super quiet, hard hitting and accurate. My rifle will put 4 pellets through the same hole at 25 yards. The only hassle is the pump to recharge. I guess it's good exercise for my upper body. Bolt a little tight but over time it's loosened up. Shooting the Diablo 24 grain pellet gives the best accuracy. Glassed with a BSA contender. Can't wait to take it varmint hunting.
ProsGreat construction and an American product.

I went large. The whole combo. Gun CP scope Air-venturi 4500 psi air tank. For me it was time to take the plunge from my .22 disco with g6 hand pump over to a .25 cal mrod. The price at christmas with a discount code was unbelievably awsome. It's what I was waiting for. I have wanted one forever but my concern was air. I'm not pumping an mrod!! Hallelujah I have a Hong yeng compressor. NOW I'm ready. I'm extremely happy with the purchase of my Mrod combo. It's everything everyone says it is. The trigger the trigger the trigger. Man did I mention the triger. So nice. The Power! Nice !! AT 25 YDS I punched through a fire extinguisher. .25 jsb king. Blammmm whit powder popped out everywhere so very cool. I like haveing a tank with gauge to fill from thats backpack size for field use. The center point scope is just ok. I'm thinking better glass maybe leapers. I'm glad I did this as its the conclusion to my crossman benjamine collection. (Unless momma says bulldog) ya never know what next christmas will bring.
ProsPower & accuracy ! At an all inclusive great price.
ConsHonestly Without that christmas discount code i probably wouldn't have bought all this at one time. The guns a little heavy. But I went traditional wood, not synthetic.
My second child
January 4, 2018
I got a .25 synthetic Marauder a year before, and was so impressed with everything, I HAD TO give it a sibling! I then ordered this .22 with wood stock when I saw the amazing $75-off instant discount! New gun ended up being $375... with a good scope on it...$500. I am so far as equally satisfied with its simplicity, accuracy, quality, quietness...etc. I like the trigger. It's not german engineered, but it is light, smooth, and predictable. I put a BSA 4-12x40 scope on and after a few shots, it is extremely accurate using standard inexpensive Crosman hollow points, or I like the "Pirranhas" because they just do an extra little number on the squirrels in the backyard! The gun is accurate and quiet which are my two main considerations. I live in a popular neighborhood in a large city, and I don't want to alert anybody about my potentially controversial but necessary activities in my back yard. Squirrels are my main target, (they are out of control!) and you wouldn't believe how many bleeding-heart, fuzzy-animal-loving-snowflakes that there are! Also, hanging out with anything that appears to be a gun these days tends to cause huge alarm with anyone who watches the news! ANYWAYS! Yes. The sound of the pellet hitting my little grey nemesis(es) makes more sound than the gun itself! Most of my shooting is up to about 75 yards, and this gun is spot-on every time. Limited only by my own hold or strategic position that I can quickly take...those buggers don't stop moving unless they're hiding from someone else! I think that the .22 is better for me and this environment because .25 can sometimes be a bit much for a squirrel. The air range I stay in is from 2900psi down to 1200 or so, I can get 50+ good shots. The action feels smooth and firm. All in all, this has become my go-to gun because it will so reliably get the shot done... and have the option for fast follow up shots!
ProsGreat gun for "work" and also for "play"
ConsIt is so productive with it's ability to harvest bushy-tailed tree-meat, I'm running out of targets!

This is my first PCP rifle and what a joy to shoot. It works as advertised and it is really a good quality product. The fit and finish are super and I am looking forward to learning to shoot some field target events with it.
ProsGood quality and great fit and finish. Easy to follow user manual, and very easy to set-up and get going. The magazine is simple and fool-proof to use and works without any issues.
ConsIt is a bit heavy and may be too heavy for small or young users, but this type of gun was made for sport shooting so that should not be an issue for many shooters. It just has a solid fieel.

I bought the .22 Benjamin Marauder combo, as my introduction to the PCP Air Rifle world and I am highly impressed! My shooting experience comes from powder burners and various multipump/springer/Nitro/ air rifles. While I love my powder burners, I have neighbors and can't shoot them in the backyard and the shooting range is a long drive and over crowded. I have longed for a backyard replacement, for going to the range with my traditional rifles, but none of my air rifles have fit the bill. They have all felt like toys, lacking decent triggers and relative to my traditional rifles, are inaccurate. Well, NO MORE!! This Benjamin Marauder is wonderful! When I unboxed the Benjamin Marauder, I was immediately impressed the the quality feel of this rifle. It is a heavy rifle, but not hard to handle or unpleasant. The wood stock is comfortable. My first pull of the bolt surprised me, it was rather stiff but it does break in nd gets smooth. The trigger is wonderful! Finally a trigger that rivals that of my traditional firearms! I have a Savage .308 and the triggers are very similar. Short pulls and crisp break. You always know where this trigger will break! Unlike all of my other air rifles with a mile long pull before it breaks. Good job , Benjamin! Alright I have cleaned the barrel, let's take it out and shoot! I am using a UTG 4x32 mildot scope off of my Benjamin Nitro. First to fill the gun with air. I did buy the combo with the rifle and Benjamin high pressure hand pump. I have been wondering how hard this would be. I didn't count the pumps on first fill, but the rifle had 1000psi and I filled to 3000psi. I was tired afterward. It is far from impossible but it will give you a workout. After about 4 fills, I figured out that over about 2800 psi, I seemed to be losing accuracy, so I shoot from 2800psi down to about 2100psi. It takes about 60 pumps to fill it back up. Wth the factory power settings, I am getting about 40 shots per fill. I have shot down past the 2100psi and it seems to stay accurate down to around 1600psi. After around 200 rounds, I started looking at the measurable accuracy. I am shooting at 30 yards at 1/2" dots on a target. I tried multiple pellets. The worse seems to be Crosman Premier comes 14.3g. at 1" and larger groups The best groups are coming from JSB Exact Jumbo 18.13g. at a 1/2" to slightly less than 1/4" group. This rifle seems to want heavy pellets. The H&N Baracuda Match 21.14 does very well also at 3/4" to 1/2" groups. Keep in mind that I am using a rest but I am fully supporting the rifle in my hands, so this is not as good as the accuracy could be. I have only shot 2 clips of JEB Exacts but the accuracy is substantially better than everything else tested. At one point, the rifle stacked 3 pellets on top of each other...making a clump of pellets still hung in the target. I have run close to 1000 rounds through the rifle. The bolt that started as stiff and sticky, has become smooth. The trigger is just an extension of my finger, requiring no thought at all. The Magazine is excellent...after you figure out how to fill it. This rifle fits my needs perfectly. It is a tack driver built with quality. I can go out in my yard and practice shooting for far less money than I would spend on my .308 ammo. The Benjamin leaves you feeling like you are using a real firearm, less the loud bang. (Super quiet, just the ping of the hammer falling). No more feeling like you are playing with a carnival you, while really wishing were sharpening your shooting skills. If you are looking to an alternative to traditional firearms for the sake of cheaper ammo and convenience of shooting at home, this is it!
ProsExcellent build quality, excellent trigger, excellent accuracy, super quiet, inexpensive to shoot
ConsThe wood stock seems to be painted rather than stained? Finish is easily damaged. The hand pump has such a short hose that it forces you to my the rifle on the ground to fill it. It doesn't give me happy feelings to lay my $500 rifle in the dirt, so I always have to carry something to lay it on
Boredom setting in

25-30 yds. one hole groups, shooting the staples that hold the target to the board, vaporizing cherry tomatoes. Back yard only allows 30 yds max. Gonna have to drive 5 min to shoot longer range. Not enough of a challenge at these ranges. This gun is unbelievable
ProsNice trigger, ajusted down to 1.5 pounds, Hawk vantage 4-12 ir 50mm scope, high rings seem about perfect for this rifle. Having a lot of fun with this gun .25 cal hits hard!
Killer Deal For the $$
November 24, 2017
For anyone looking to get into PCP shooting, I would highly recommend this combo. You will need to buy or provide the optics and make sure to get a set of high scope rings to provide for proper clearance. Lastly, I read some reviews that accuracy wasn't the greatest but I've had no issues. It does like some pellets better than others but it's pretty consistent for the most part.

This was my first PCP rifle. It should have been my first. This is the most silent rifle I have ever had. It has no kickback at all, is accurate and does not weigh a ton. This is what I have been looking for! The price is not that much more than a break barrel rifle and much more accurate. Buy one if you can!!!!!
ProsSilent, accurate, not too heavy.
Consnone that I can see
the sling and fill station don't work and waiting for replacement
November 2, 2017
To be frankly, I purchased this combo from airgun depot sorely because of the competitive price and the $70 discount last month. After I placed the order, they told me this item is back-ordered and have to wait one more week. That's fine, I'm in no hurry. But when I got the package, I found the Sling Swivel can't go through the post and can't installed onto the gun. I make a call to Airgun Depot and wrote emails. Finally they agreed to send me a new sling. That's one thing. It took me several days to find a scuba store nearby to fill the air tank. And after I finally filled the tank, a new problem occurred. It's the hose of the fill station. The tank is filled, the knob works, but the air can't go into the gun because the hose is blocked somehow. I found a friend to fill my airgun and the gun is ok. So I wrote to them again and still wait for their reply. Gees! This is my first time shopping in Airgun Depot. I have to wait a month to use my Mrod as expected. Can't they check the quality control! Told them to give a return label, I'll send them back the sling and fill station as they can check it!
Prosgood price, nice gun, accurate.
Consthe sling, the fill station, don't wok! I almost lost my patience.

Just Like Brand New!
November 1, 2017
Accurate out of the box! I bought three extra clips and can usually empty 4 with one fill up on this gun. If you read reviews on this gun, you'll probably hear about the trigger. It is perfect!! Groups at 10 yards are dime sized with Crosman Premier Domed. 25 years slightly larger than a quarter, but many shots go through the same hole. Yes, it is heavy, but I pretty much bench shoot (I don't hunt much at all). For hunting I use the Woods Walker with stock. I have 2 Marauders rifles and two of the pistols (woods walker and regular). Three I purchased brand new, and this one I purchased refurbished. I WANTED a refurb as I trust Airgun Depot to have it tuned and ready :) All my Marauders besides the woods walker arrived perfect. I had to tune the woods walker trigger a bit and it seems to have occasional issues firing, but overall is an absolute pleasure to shoot. I figured the refurb would have he trigger tuned properly and have all the seals in place / hold pressure and I was correct. I guess I mean to say that if I had an option to send every gun I buy to Airgun Depot to have it "tuned", I would do so. Plus, the refurb is a bit less! I'm definitely keeping an eye on the refurb pcp offerings in the future.
ProsBest trigger in the $400-$500 range that I've found. Very accurate out of the box. Quiet! Good number of shots per fill - I usually get 32-40 before filling in .22 and a few more with my .177.
ConsHeavy if you plan to carry it - I would get a sling.
.25 cal Marauder
November 1, 2017
The combo package arrived quickly and without issues. The rifle, scope and mounts were all perfect. I was able to mount and level the scope without any fuss. The Air Venturi tank had a problem with an air leak in the quick disconnect end of the fill hose. The tank itself was fine just a problem with the fill line. Customer service was great the defective product was returned and a replacement tank was delivered in a timely fashion. My overall experience was very good.

Superb shooting gun, I bought this at a refurbished gun and was told that the only flaw was usually a scratch. When I got it thought I noticed a crack from the trigger guard all the way around I was surprised to see them let this go out like that. I called and they made it right by sending me another stock!

This gun is accurate right out of the box I did adjust the trigger and now out at 50 yards I'm shooting less than a half inch 5 shot group scary accurate. This rifle is more accurate than I'll ever be. Get approximately 40 rounds plus out of one fill. I love the fact that I'll be able to tune adjust its a great gun really great gun. I do advise you get a few extra 10-round mags you'll be happy you did.

I love this rifle
September 8, 2017
At some point between my younger youth and my older youth air guns made a switch from toys to serious guns. Don't know when that happened, but I'm glad it did. I pretty much love everything about this air rifle and would marry it if I wasn't already married. The .22 has enough power to entertain me for hours while not endangering the neighborhood. I can't imagine any rifle being more quiet while delivering the power and accuracy that the Marauder does, and at a great price point! I'm sure a lot of air gunners would argue with me about their guns superiority over mine, but, I'm happy and that's all that matters. You probably will be too.
ProsPower - good, Accuracy - good. Trigger - really good Shots per fill - about 40. Did I mention QUIET.
ConsThe Safety is kind of scary. It looks like a trigger, feels like a trigger and is located directly in front of the actual trigger. A bit heavy, but not too much.
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".
ProsAccuracy 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
ConsCost to get started Weight of the gun

This is my first PCP rifle, and I couldn't be more happier at the choice I made with this gun. I did a lot of research on the Internet as well as watched a lot of YouTube videos, this seemed to be the best choice to get into this sport with the first PCP which was very affordable. After receiving the marauder and unboxing the gun I proceeded to mount the scope I purchased with it and pump up the pressure to the recommended 2600psi by hand with the pump that came with this combo, it's quite a workout to get to this pressure but after A few shots and topping off the pressure it's not so bad, dialing in the scope took about 10 or 15 minutes then it was consistent bull's-eyes at that point . This gun is awesome and very fun to shoot, I would highly recommend this rifle to any one wanting to get into their first PCP air gun!!
ProsEverything about this gun is a pro would highly recommend this to anyone looking for their first PCP rifle. Awesome product !!!

.22 Marauder combo with scope and sling
June 22, 2017
This is my first PCP and I have to say this rifle is quiet! The pellet hitting the target makes more noise than the gun! I set up a crony and with 14.3 grain Crossman pellets it is averaging about 865 fps right out of the box, and is consistently there for 32-35 shots, and then the pressure is down to 2000 psi from a full 3000 psi fill. That is 24 lb/ft of muzzle energy. The first 25 shots had a standard deviation of 14 fps. Threw a couple of 18.21 grain pellets through it and they were running about 800 fps. I've done some reading on www.marauderairrifle.com about all of the tuning that guys do to these guns, but I am going to leave it alone for now, it is right where I want it to be. I am also pleasantly surprised with the Center Point scope. It was packaged in that hard to open plastic that you would see hanging on hooks at a store and I thought it was going to be a cheapo. But the lens is clear, it has an adjustable objective that is obviously made for pellet guns as it goes down to 15 yards, increases in small increments to 100 yards, then to infinity. It also has an illuminated recticle in 2 colors with variable brightness settings, with BDC markings to aid with holdover. I don't know where the bullet drop points are going to be as far as distance yet, but it has them. The trigger is nice, no immediate plans to adjust it. It has a long smooth light creep, then it comes to a clear stop (the second stage), and then breaks easily with no creep. I did have a couple of pellets jam between the bolt and the magazine, which made it hard to get the magazine out to clear the mangled pellet. I read on a forum that if you cock the gun with the muzzle pointed down, this will not happen. Only a couple of people had this concern. The rotary magazine automatically rotates to the next pellet when the rifle is cocked, making for easy follow up shots. I have the Benjamin pump and it is a workout. It takes about 75 pumps to go from 2000 to 3000 psi. If you weigh 150 lbs or less you may not be able to compress it all the way, I basically lock my arms out and use body weight to pump it. I plan to get a 4500 psi tank in the near future, but still glad to have the hand pump for a backup. The gun does not have iron sights so you will need a scope, and if you are going to be in the field you will want a sling. This was a good package deal that came with everything including the correct scope rings.

Fine rifle at any price
June 14, 2017
Just got it a few days ago. I got the .25 cal because of its knock-down power while remaining subsonic. The rifle is well made, well finished, and works as advertised. A little heavy, and bigger than my spring guns, but based on a few days shooting, the last one I have is for sale. This one is getting it done!
Pros1) Not sensitive to how it's held. I'm an old Hi-power match shooter and believe in slings, cheekwelds, and position shooting. My spring guns would scatter hits when I ham-fisted them. This one doesn't. 2) You can use a quality riflescope on PCP guns. 3) .25 cal rocks. 4) American made 5) GREAT trigger and safety 6) 8 shot magazine with visible round counter 7) Made out of wood and steel and nicely finished. 8) Adjustable cheekpiece 9) Barrel and shroud free-float 10) Outstanding AGD Customer and Technical Service. The lady I talked to knows airguns, pumps, and accessories and answered all my questions. 11) The rifle, pump and accessories were very well packed for shipping and arrived unscathed.
Cons1) Checkering is a little cheesy. 2) Bottom of forearm needs to have edges rounded off. More like a bag-rider than a hunting rifle.

This is my first experience with a pcp air rifle. I got this gun to help me get back in the high power and long range rifle competitions after a ten year absence. Ranges are scarce here on the left coast and backyard practice is a plus. I wasn't expecting too much, I just didn't want to break position to cock a side lever or break barrel. Well let me tell you this rifle is a tack driver. After a few shots zeroing the sights, the next eight went into a thee eighths hole at thirty yards using JSB Diablo. 25 pellets. I was also surprised at how quiet it was. My neighbors won't hear it at all. Fit and finish is nice but I was a bit surprised at how easily the free floated barrel can be deflected by any external force. I thought the gun had somehow shifted zero on my second string of shots but was surprised to find the finger of my shooting glove lightly touching the barrel affected the POA.
ConsNot so sure I like the position of the safety switch.

May 26, 2017
Hi all. I have had this rifle for awhile now, so I thought I would give it a review. I LOVE THIS RIFLE! I was so surprised at how accurate this rifle is around 50 yards. Wow, I hope it keeps this performance level. I have a shooting stand setup to test it, and I was able to hold a quarter size group through two magazines. Do not get me wrong, there is the occasional drifter do to the wind but we are talking 1 or 2 out of the whole magazine. The most one drifted was about 2.5 inches from the quarter size pattern. The rifle has a good feel with the synthetic stock and it looks good. So far, I could not have asked for a better rifle for that price.
Prosgood looks water proof stock accurate nice weight good price

Excellent accuracy so far at 25-50 yards (jsb diablo king .25). I expected a bit more of the craftsmanship but the gun performs well. Only been shooting it for a few weeks now so no idea of how it holds up over time yet. I have had a few dangerous situations where a pellet wasn't going in all the way (couldn't put the bolt all the way in) but it was still ready to fire. Had to cock bolt back again to try to remove cartidge which was also stuck. Long story short ended up firing multiple pellets at once.
ProsGreat accuracy and performance ( so far at 25-50 yards ), fun to shoot, pretty quiet, and little to no recoil as expected.
ConsOverpriced, a little bit of poor craftsmanship/cheap parts, and very hard/time consuming to pump with a hand pump.

When I purchased this rifle I was a little skeptical on how quiet it would be and how accurate. WELL I WAS ALL WRONG!! The Benjamin Marauder.25 is extremely quiet shoots great and I am able to shoot a golf ball at 70 yards repeatedly. This thing is awesome it has exceeded my expectations of "backyard friendly". The rifle is doing its job well. My backyard garden pests are dropping left and right. Pwexatony Phil never stood a chance! My only concern for a suburban shooter is the power be careful if you buy this to shoot in a slightly populated area because I found that at 30 yards it goes through inch and a half pine boards. As for hunting. I think this will replace my .22 short rifle as my rabbit and squirrel gun. It is almost mouse fart quiet.

February 1, 2017
This is my first PCP owned but I have used others at the range. A Styer LG100 spoiled me for accuracy and other pcp's were good, too. However, this is MY air rifle and the accuracy at 25, 50 and 75 yards is terrific! I already had a scuba tank and just purchaed the adapter to fill to 2900. I also put a CP 4-16X44 scope with AO and it works great. The gun is a little heavy(wood stock) but is a good all around hunter/plinker/target gun. My advice? Get one- you will be pleased! I have 22 cal and may get another one in 177!
ProsPowerful, easy to load magazines-buy several extra. Quietest report, eeven better than my CO2's. Accuracy is outstanding! Use a scope! Non-regulated so set up a bullet drop card for when pressure gets below 1300psi. Longer distance targets, use a lighter pellet. Ideal range for my gun is 2700 to 1300.
ConsI would have got the synthetic stock, but the wood one looks great, just a pound heavier.

Great Air Rifle
January 24, 2017
I am retired military and have not shot any type of weapon regularly since retiring. After reading & researching a lot, I chose an air gun over powder weapon. The setup & instructions for all of the accessories were very clear but you must read carefully. Right our of the box the scope sight was very close. I am, after all the years of not shooting, getting adjusted but my groupings have been at he quarter size. I am sure I will get better as time goes on. It is a lot different shooting from a fixed to a bi-pod stance. No complaints on any of the items or accessories. Everything worked, mounted and functioned as my salesman (Jerry) stated. Let me say this about Jerry, he answered ALL my questions with patience, gave advice & is very knowledgeable. (his ext:243)
ProsThis .25 Marauder is very accurate for me having his my yard pest at 58 yards. Everything works as Jerry said it would!
ConsNone as to the gun, scope, bi-pod or the magazines. However, the pellets (JSB Diablo's have a lot of defective/deformed items) Out of 350 count, I have throws away about 25.
Benjamin. 22 cal. Syn.Rod and pump combo
January 11, 2017
If you are on the fence like I was about spending this much on an air rifle, don't think twice, you will NOT regret it. It is more fun to shoot than any .22 cal rim fire that I own. The rifle is extremely quiet as advertised and also consistently very accurate. I have not adjusted any of the factory settings and the gun is shooting deadly accurate zeroed at 50 yards, if you miss the target it's all on the shooter. The Benjamin hand pump also works well and is made from solid material. It consistentry fills my rifle from 2100 to 3000 psi with 70 pumps.
ProsAccurate, no problem hitting targets at 100+ yards. Trigger is great, very smooth as set from factory. Not as heavy as many claim, it depends on accessories added. Plenty of knock down power in .22 cal. Gun shoots accurately with the low cost Crossman Premier hollow point 14.3 grain pellets. I felt no need to try any other brand pellets. (If the rifle would be any more accurate, it would be boring to shoot...just joking) Great purchase, no regrets!

Awesome Air Rifle
January 8, 2017
Reluctant to spend this much money for an air rifle and scope but once I mounted the Hawke Optics Sport HD 4-12x50 AO scope with the Accushot High 1" Rings, Dovetail on my Marauder 22cal. and shot the gun it was more fun than any non air rifle I own. I have shot about 250 rounds thought this gun and love shooting it, well constructed rifle, super accurate and very quiet . I purchased the Hill Hand Pump MK4 with my Marauder air rifle and this was another good choice. It is not easy to pump the gun from 2200 PSI to 3000 PSI but well worth the effort.
ProsNo Regrets for buying my Marauder air rifle great gun, Love it, Can shoot in my back yard all day and not disturb any neighbors
Accuracy straight out of the box
January 7, 2017
Took the rifle out of the box, mounted a UTG 4-16x40 scope,pumped to 2700 psi., loaded some JSB Diabolo Exact King , got it dialed in at 30 yds. Shot a five shot group that was just a single enlarged hole. What more could you want.
Sent me the wrong gun!
December 5, 2016
I ordered the "Black Friday" Christmas Bundle for $799 and got some extra pellets, cleaning kit, etc., Problem is they sent the 25 cal instead, charged me for the 22 though, won't respond to the 2 calls I left message both times, also called during business hours and explained to female that answered that I got the wrong rifle, was put on hold forever, hung up after 8 minutes.... so I guess I'm stuck with the 25 cal, which sucks because the 22 ammo and other goodies I bought are useless with the larger caliber. I have decided to just keep the 25 cal since they won't return my calls, and now if they call me I won't be answering them either. Really let down by this transaction but love the 25 cal gun. The Marauder 25 cal is accurate at 44 yards with my testing but it really likes to use a lot of air! The 6-20x50mm scope is awesome too. All said it is a great gun and combo! Chrony reported consistent Velocity and Energy and the target reveals a very accurate result using Benjamin 27.8g dome pellets. (the only 25 cal pellet I can find within 100 miles) My cousin also ordered the 22 Cal Marauder deal the same night and it never arrived, when he called asking about it they said the order number could not be found, even though they emailed him after he ordered... what a mess! Giving 5 stars for the product! The service and lack of follow up gets 0 stars
ProsPowerful, accurate, fairly quiet.
ConsDidn't get what I ordered, won't return my calls.

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...
ProsGood balance, very accurate
Consheavy (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.
