    So I took off most of what it came with and replaced it with the following:
    F.A.B. GL stock with Cheek rest GL-CR
    F.A.B. Mono pod butt pad 
    Custom AR Competition Hand Grip
    Sightmark triple duty 6-25x56mm MDD Scope. (Mildot dot)
    Sightmark Scope Sunshade
    Bipod – A better one will be installed very soon

    Tomorrow I will install the Hill Airgun Depinger and see if my local gun shop will take pity on me and let me use an AR Armors Wrench to remove the buffer tube lock ring/nut
    So i can install the UTG AR Side folding Stock Adapter.

    Then to the range
    Then to the pigeons
    Muhahahahahahaha

    The scope is set so far forward to allow room to set up a scope cam for filming.

    The scope is set so far foward to alow me room to put my camera for filming. I need the right amount of space between my eyes and the camera and then the right space between the cam and scope to capture a good image. And then a little wiggle room if I need to make a quick adjustment.

    Looks like you just got yourself hours of fun, the grip, cheek rest and butt pad really makes it look pretty, looking forward to hear how she behaves.

    Why does it have an orange tip like an airsoft gun? 

    I thought those were meant for toys to stop them being mistaken for real guns. Air guns that fire metal ammo are excluded because they are dangerous so the police are allowed to shoot you if you wave it around in public.

    That is a cap that comes on all marauders to protect the muzzle end during shipping.

    “ajshoots”That is a cap that comes on all marauders to protect the muzzle end during shipping.

    
That would explain why I haven’t seen it before. I got the Marauder I had from the classifieds. Still, I would have taken it off for the photos. It kinda detracts from that tactical look….

    I always leave them in the factory box along with the rubber bolt handle cover and reuse if I sell to a new owner for shipping.

    Have you checked out the RAW trigger?
    It’s pretty comfortable, and an easy swap.
    Just need to resize the pivot pin hole a little.

    Have you shot it for accuracy with the scope mounted on the forearm rail? The stock is stiffer than the syn one that comes on the synrod but you might find a wandering poi because the forearm does have a little shift in it.

    unfortunately at this time i have discovered that my barrel when locked in using there barrel band is pulled to the left at the end point of the gun.. I also have a video of me unboxing the gun and i went back watched it and realized it is a factory issue  it came that way.

    I contacted crossed and it quickly appeared i was talking to some one who has never handled the gun before.. she told me to adjust the barrel band but as you know it is locked in at 3 points on the tactical looking front. the tactical front is locked in with 4 bolts and is precisely slotted in at its base..he told me don’t worry the what you are looking at is not the barrel its the barrel shroud and even it its angled the free floating barrel could be straight…

    the barrel is tightly housed in the shroud so if the shroud moves the barrel moves— am i correct?

    he then said to take the shroud off and put it back on – no fix here

    he told me that the tactical forehand part is adjustable with the 4 bolts in back.. tensioning one side and loosening the other to get it to move around .
    I thought of this and tinkered around with it for a good while before i even called them it didn’t work at all.
    he could not tell me the process of adjusting it

    his last advise was to shoot it a bunch and it might straighten back out— it did not

    now i went from having a new gun with a cooked barrel to a used gun with a crooked barrel.

    crosman said i can mail the gun in for warranty work but since i installed a designer i might have voided the warranty

    I told Crosman i have videos,
    the first showing me unboxing the gun and you can see the barrel is angled to the left.
    the second showing me installing the depinger which probably also shows the bent barrel..
    both of which have the date and time recorded in there meta data which is tamper prof

    my argument stating i had solid proof it came from the factory that way had little effect on them.It is my belief that the barrel band or the tactical stock is the cause of the issue I think the barrel is just fine but when the barrel band which only touches the air reservoir is put on it pulled the tactical front piece to the side…

    this wouldn’t really be an issue but i bought the gun just for this extended picatinny rail. i can mount a scope on it and a camera and still have the appraise eye relief to shoulder the gun normally.

    when i did shoot it tho i did have the scope on the forearm rain and it was shooting very tight groups at 30 yds
    even so i would assume that at well say 10 yards i would be hitting to the right and at 100 yards i would be off to the left
