    I don’t think you’ll go wrong with the BT65 or Marauder in .25 cal base on the price range. I’ve seen them both For sale on the classified for a very reasonable price. I have heard and saw videos of the cocking unit on the BT65 being quite hard. I’m still siding the Marauder due to all the  after market prices. There’s even a .30 Cal conversion kit available if you what more knock down power in the future.

    Ok. Due to some fortunate circumstances my budget is $1000. Don’t tell my wife lol. I hope you guy’s and gals aren’t getting sick of me lol. I just want the perfect gun for me. So to refresh memories. 25 cal, no big tanks cuz I gotta pump by hand for now. Prefer a bullpup but full size is not out if the question. Back to the classifieds!

    So how about the FX streamline .25. Right at my price and is regulated and has a power selector? And 6lbs without a scope.

    If your budget is $1,000 and interested in a bullpup. I would just add another $300 and get the new FX Wildcat. I had the first 25 cal version and it was super accurate with plenty of power. I sold it because the hunting I do will get the rifle scratched up. Your options with $1,000 are pretty big these days. There’s a lot of companies make real good airguns. Good luck on your search.

    “E-Dogg”I will check the classifieds thanks. Ok don’t forget my budget lol. Also to help I do not have a fill tank only a pump, which I am ok with on the small tank models anything above 250 cc’s or so will be to much pumpin!

    
I’d check Field Supply. You can refurbished Hatsan s and Marauders at a nice price. I also wouldn’t sleep on the Kral arms, I’ve seen some impressive results with a little polishing.

    I have found the bullpup to be a good solution for offhand shooting. For shooting off of a rest or a bipod I prefer a standard rifle. One thing I don’t like about bullpups is that you have to mount the scope pretty high above the bore which complicates judging trajectory while hunting.

    I own a bullboss (wood) in .25 and my currently have my buddy’s Karl puncher breaker (synthetic) hanging out in the garage because he wanted me to get it dialed in for him.

    im really impressed with the Kral. It’s really light and super accurate – easily as accurate as the bulllboss.  

    Dont rule out the Kral.  They’re damn good guns I really like them.  Great price point.

    best of luck!!!

    I have three 25 cal. air rifles, Marauder, Daystate Airwolf and Cricket bullpup. The Daystate and Marauder shoot the JSB 25 gr pellets at 845-860 fps for ca 42 FT lb of energy. The Cricket shoots the 25 gr pellets at 975-990 and the 34 gr pellets at 890-900 for ca 52-55 FT 
    Lb of energy.

    I have my .25 Marauder tuned for low pressure fill-it shoots the JSB 25,4 Kings at around 780 fps and will easily take ground squirrels out past 100 yards in good shooting conditions. If you can place the shot, it will do the job.

that is a good point about mounting the scope high. Is it a bit more difficult going from 50 to 75 yrd shots to a squirrel that pops up 10 yrds from you?
    thammer I am checkin out your site and videos. Pretty affordable upgrades I must say.

    Well gents after much web surfing, youtube watchin and question asking I think I’m  gonna go with the .25 Bullboss. Fieldsupply has them for about $430 I think. I figure with my funds I can have a rifle and throw a regulator in it with a little tuning. Also might squeeze in a new scope or a small buddy tank. I mainly shoot critters so pumping isn’t to bad. I just pump after 20rds and only takes 4 or 5 mins top to refill. I don’t know where some people say they have to pump for 20 mins. What are some of your favorite small field tanks.? Thanks for the all the advice and info!

    +1 what Cone said. A Talon p with ldc and drop in a $40 super sear (WOW factor). Jsb 25.4 are very accurate. Take things to another  level with Carson rat sniper slugs . With a condor hi-flo tank and proper tune 40 shots @ 850/865 and the 12″ LW bbl will hang with the long boys with out the weight.  For more fun add Tony’s qctp with the 2 inserts. Total fun gun. One shot, one kill.

    Great pitch shambozzie! But I’m not feeling the condor right now but a condor is on my list. Back to 2 choices lol that kral puncher breaker fully tuned from thammer is lookin pretty good to.

    For your use I would skip the buddy bottle and get a used SCBA tank that’s not expired yet. The buddy is only good for a few fills. It also doesn’t cost much more to fill a large tank vs. the buddy bottle.
