Reply To: Yet another guy new to PCP looking for help
The gun that everyone on here will suggest would be the Benjamin Marauder. It’s in the $405 range (with AGNATION coupon code) , plus $200 for the pump, and then you have another $350 left for the scope. IF later down the line you decide you want better accuracy or more shots per fill you can modify it some. If you’re looking for a “traditional” gun then the Marauder even comes in a wood stock.
There is no other PCP that will stay under the $1000 mark for the whole package. Most people on here spend $1000+ on the rifle alone. I have an FX Impact ($1900), Athlon Argos Scope ($445), Scope rings ($55), SCBA tank ($500), and Bipod ($35-250). That’s a $3000 setup. Now my setup will outshoot a Marauder (most likely), but you get the same level of accuracy that you pay for (unless it’s a Steyr [I’ve had bad luck with them]).
