6600, You claim that the marauder SAM is a flop! Do your research before you open your mouth! Every respectable reviewer of airguns, have nothing but posative reviews of these guns, with no problems,FACT!!! Steve @ AEAC, Rick @Sooter1721, Donny @ BAKER AIR to name a few... It is also not under powered! It is capeable of 28-30 fpe @ the cost of shot count, about 30-40 good usable shots. @ the factory setting 22-24 fpe you gain about 20 shots, 50-60. More than enough power to hunt with... The bar that has been set for a 22 pcp, is 30 fpe. This gun is as strong as the fx monsoon. The difference is, this gun is reliable & half the cost.... FACT! .Now grab your nook & blankie, & take yourself a nap.
Hahaha you mentioning payed reviewers, of course they will say nothing wrong about the gun and also get handpicked guns ,...just check on forums for comments by actual people that has or had the gun those are the ones that count ....going back to the Benjamin Rogue, payed celebrities reviews where stellar as well as specs put out from the factory, once the gun got into real customers hand it was an all different story.
Today a 28 FPE .22 is underpowered and that is way they didn't even bother bringing out a .25, I think you stuck in yesteryear with your airgunning standards that is why you keep bringing up the Monsoon that was a flop in it's own way many years ago,...Anyway AEA is kicking Crosman's butt all across the field and some, way more reliable, powerful, in all calibers up to .357, tons of different options and configurations.
Crosman is following and still losing ground daily and a lot of it.
