    I took the Marauder and the Bulldog out to shoot today.  I couldn’t really shoot the Bulldog much because I only had 25 Nosler slugs.  But I got it sighted in and I’m pretty impressed with the accuracy so far.  When I got home a box full of ammo was waiting for me so we’ll see how that does next time. It isn’t too loud but definitely not backyard friendly. It has a little kick when fired but nothing like a firearm. I need to get different rings for my scope I think as I can’t get a good position to look through the scope. My only complaint so far is that it’s leaking air.  Quickly. I’m guessing it will need to go back to Crosman. 

    From 50yards I shot 6 rounds at each target, 1 mag and one single shot to adjust.  The scope isn’t perfect yet but the gun is consistent. 

    It fits very nicely in my Plano hardshell case:

    All in all a very good start. It takes a little while to get to know the rifle so very good groups first time out with only 25 rounds!!!!! I think this gun is starting to grow on people and just like the real bulldog, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Keep us post, looks like it is a keeper! (I can’t stop looking at the Airbow.)

    PS- Nice case, is that from Midway?

    Yes. That was a Plano hardshell case I bought a while ago because it was only $54. I finally found a gun for it.

    Have you been able to isolate where the leak may be at? Could be as simple as a loose gauge or even the foster fitting. Good shooting and look forward to your future posts on the Bulldog!!  I have been shooting mine daily and really enjoying it.

     Thanks for the update. To bad it has a leak, were  it an original marauder in .22 I wouldn’t want to send it back as you do seem to have a good barrel and crosman will likely just issue a different rifle not repair that one and return it – if they follow their standard past procedures- but as it is a totally different barrel hopefully they are all good.
     Crosman is normally pretty good about allowing people who want to try fixing their own rifle ( AFTER speaking with someone in warranty) and still maintaining their warranty, esp. if it’s just an outside part , fill adaptor or such.
     Anyway, nice shooting with those whopping big “pellets”.

I haven’t really had time to check and honestly, I want to check with Crosman before I start turning wrenches on it. I’ve been burned by my impatience in the past. It can really only be leaking from three places: the inlet, outlet or the gauge.  If customer service gives me the green light I’ll try wrenching on it, but I don’t want to inadvertently void the warranty.

    It’s going back to Crosman.  They’ll probably just send me another one off the shelf.

    Your pictures on your groups doesnt really tell what happened. Is the right side like a five inch group at 50 yards? And is the left a 1 and a half inch group with a flier?

    For each target I shot five rounds centered on the bullseye, then single loaded a 6th round and made a holdover correction based on the previous 5 shots group.  Those single loaded rounds are pretty close to dead on.  So it shows that at 50 yards, this gun is shooting consistently (and my scope needs to be adjusted some more.)  I only had 30rounds of ammo to shoot though.  My first 5 rounds disappeared into the ether, so I moved back to about 20 yards and tried again with another 5 rounds.  I adjusted the scope on the next 5 rounds at 20 yards.  Then I moved the target out to 50 yards and tried again  After 3 shots and a few adjustments it looked OK.    The last 12 rounds are in the picture.  There’s a rogue shot in the left target that was from me earlier just trying to find where the rounds were going.
