    I think my next gun is going to be a 177 cal Marauder.  I plan to shoot it on CO2 (I have my own fill station) till I can afford a great white or a compressor.  Any one know what kind of FPS I can expect?  I did a lot of looking and did not find that info  ? Thanks Brian Smith

    I don’t think that the Marauder is designed to work on CO2 and I believe the manual expressly advises against it.  I think that the Disco however is, or was, equipped to work on CO2.

    I watched a couple videos of the Marauder on CO2.  Air gun web did one.  He was shooting a 22 cal and getting about 580 on CO2 with it.  If I could get 650-680 with the 177 cal I would go ahead and do it until I can get a tank or compressor.  Thanks.  Brian

    I’m not at all certain what the current marauder model say’s , it “was” ( can be) a “duel fuel” rifle , most pcp’s can run Co2 but in some the O-rings would need replaced, middle of Summer adjusted correctly you should be able to get to 20fpe in .22 and it will be a bit of a gas hog – not an issue if you’ve got a 20lb tank or such- , in .177 “I” haven’t seen one on Co2.  Likely the review you watched was just at whatever setting it had not well adjusted. You’ll love the trigger.

    C02 is temperature sensitive, so fps is going to change with ambient temp. You can expect around 1100 psi on a hot summer day, much less when it is cold.

    Duel fuel was a big selling point when the Mrod first came out and I thought about running CO2 in my .177 but soon learned
    it was not practicle in Minnisota. Scuba tanks work the best for me.
