“NMshooter”I am OK with all of it, was a good learning experience and learned a lot! Very nice stock. I think that will be my last modification.
Where did you get it?


I got the stock used from an ad on the Yellow classifieds. the original owner no longer had a Marauder and wanted the space. Steve’s ad is at the bottom of the page, Woods and Water Outdoors. I’m not sure if Steve is taking orders now or not. He does excellent work, the gun shoulders really well and is more comfortable than the original stock.
As far as learning experences, I got my .25 from a friend who had gotten it wet and some rust developed on the air tube. I put on a new air tube which involved tearing down the the gun till the only parts still connected were the breech and barrel! I have to say the marauder is easy to work on and a total rebuild like that gave me a good understanding of how everything works! I tuned the .25 for a low fill, 2400psi to start and I get 20 decent shots from 767 fps to 785 and back down to 767fps. Tuning can make you crazy IMO!
