Reply To: Marauder 22 defects???
I believe Crosman has addressed this issue however, I put a Marmot Malitia barrel ($185) and a Huma regulator on it and the rifle will hold it’s own with any high priced air rifle ( out to 75 yards). I would venture to say that you should be prepared to make these modifications if considering this rifle. This adds about $300 to the purchase of the rifle. I would also recommend reading up on the FX Streamline. Although I have no first-hand experience, it appears to have addressed many of the entry level rifle “problems”.
I personally like the .22 Marauder platform and the ability to modify this rifle. Because of the low price factor, I was much more willing to take it apart.
