Reply To: Marauder 22 defects???
I have the Gen 2 .22 Marauder. Very accurate at 25 yards. Just haven’t stretched it further to tell at this point. The barrel problems were Gen 1 from what I understand. I get 40 to 50 shots per fill before accuracy drops. I bought new, from Pyramid air with the pump. Pump was a waste, bought air tanks shortly after.
I’m a lousy shot, and was able to put 10 shot groups at 25 yard smaller than a quarter. No flyers.
Barrel problem was addressed.
When you buy, check the prices using the 25% off coupon, AGNATION in the banner above. That means that $540 Marauder from Crosman is $405. Big difference. Friday is free shipping. That saves another $18
I would prefer the regulated version. That will take an already good rifle and make it better.
I’m a firm believer in the Gen 2 Marauder. Upgrade barrel not needed.
Negatives – long, heavy.
Pluses – accurate, shoots Crosman Premier Domes (inexpensive ammunition) extremely well.
While I want an Impact for my next gun, which is several years away, the Marauder is an excellent shooter.
