I think the Maximus lacks more than just the wood stock, compared to the Disco. It’s got a lower power rating, and I don’t believe there’s a way to manually degas it, like on the Disco. (Going by memory there) It’s kind of like a Disco that has been cheapened in every way possible, right?

I had a Marauder and didn’t find 2500 psi too hard. 2000 was a cinch. 3000 was not too many more pumps than 2500. Going to 230 bar (3336 psi) on my Compatto is starting to feel like work.

Yeah, I guess buying a used .22 Marauder, one would have to feel confident ahead of time that it would be a shooter. 

The Hammerli 850 would be less risky because it is pro-tuned. (By Roald, who owns the850store.com) Walther barrels are not risky at all, in my experience. The gun still runs on 1100 psi, since it’s the bottle that’s regulated.
