    Hi guys! I have had a Marauder for almost a year and a half and I rarely had the chance to use it but had a good time when I did. I really stopped using it when it began to leak air. I am sending it in to Baker Airguns to have it fixed and sent back. How do I prevent my marauder from leaking in the future? Also, the zoom adjustment knob on my scope wont move. Unless this will hamper the performance of my scope in any other way, I would rather not spend any more money on a scope. Please let me know what you think!!Thanks.

    well the main thing about a leak is where and  it just a simple seal replacement I take my gun apart once a year and replace the rings and apply a fresh coat of silicone grease
    also to avoid leaks your really want to make sure you keep air pressure in the gun for storage as well as some way to remove moisture when you pump or fill it so any internal parts don’t corrode and cause a leak

    Thanks for the help. I think the thing that got me was storing the air rifle with no air in it. I will be sure to not do that again. Also, I am not very good at taking apart the gun. I am able to detatch it from the stock successfully but thats about it. Are there any tutorial vidoes out there?

    yes there is as well as you can look up a parts diagram from Crossman’s yourself witch is basically a schematic of the gun and part numbers for reference  all you really need is a few wrenches and your good to go I do not tare it down too all components just basic air tube  innards to make sure the seals stay as well as the air port to make sure theres no gunk witch is between the tube and breech.. and if you read the manual the gun came with it says to at least keep 1000 psi in the gun for storage so that the seals stay against the metal.

    I I’m. Having issues with leaks now with my .25. Started with a bad o ring that went bad  from air tank extension that I bought from talon tunes . Com. I contacted him for the size of ring and he wasn’t much help. I been guessing the size and I’m still leaking after every test and now I see I’m leaking air out the end of my barrel. I need help with this guys big time.

    Here’s a good video on disassembly-it features a gen 1, but I don’t think the gen 2s are that different.

    With a little patience and common sense (Degas first before working on the air reservoir!) I find them very easy to work on.

    I would contact Crosman if it’s still under warranty. They shipped me a brand new rifle within a reasonable amount of time.

    The cut outs for the air gauge, the trigger slot and the air tank fill screw in have unfinished sharp edges.
    I had that problem and replaced the air tub just to get one that was as poorly finished as what I had.
    I used a small rat tail file to remove all the burrs then polished it with a 1200 grit 1 inch hone on a drill.
    I did a light polish on the thread end and this ended the problem.

    The Mrod is an easy platform to work on. I learned a ton about PcP airguns with my Mrod doing my own work. Tons of aftermarket parts that are easy to get. I say do it your self and get/do some internal mods. Just do some research into it.
