As you stepped on your Ruger, you can draw the same comparisons with a PCP. Get a good tank, great suggestions already listed. Scuba tanks fill to 3000psi and loose about 75 psi each additional fill. The JSB 25.39’s usually are the pellet for your gun. The next choice would probably be the Benjamin domes. Scope choice would go with your intended use, the 10 yd parallax adjustment is favored by many. One problem I experienced with Marauders was the floating barrel. Marmot Militia makes a barrel band with additional screws to stabilize the shroud Neil Clague made a band of aluminum tubing that he placed in between band and shroud. I also used 3 Orings in place of the single that’s used with the gun. That was a very frustrating part of the learning curve. I transported the gun in an oversized soft cast, in various places in the truck over bumpy farm fields. I kept second guessing scopes when it was the barrel movement. Tuning I was very inquisitive and read much, the Marauder forum will provide a lot of info in it’s archives. I used a Tim Hill tune that was idiot easy and spelled out by the wrench size and number of turns. I have several Marauders, I’m guilty of the 10/22 mentality, replacing and modding. having more experience now and way more products with reduced prices I’d never go that route now. .
