    Anyone order the  New .22 lother Walther barrel available on the Crosman Custom Shop MROD? And if so how much more accurate is it compared to the Crosman barrel ? Thinking of getting one.Regulated the whole bit!

    With both great barrels and good barrels, there is always a bit of the lottery factor.  I have seen some Crosman/Benjamin barrels which shoot exceptionally well.  Probably on par with Walther barrels.  The Marauder I have with the .25 caliber factory Green Mountain barrel is a sub MOA barrel.  And most importantly, pellet always influences accuracy.  Mine likes the JSB 25.39 pellets a bunch.  And I promise, a walther barrel, with the wrong pellet, will shoot worse than a Crosman barrel with the right pellet.  My .22 caliber Benjamin/Crosman springer likes the H&N Field Target Trophy exceptionally well, and it will shoot exceptionally accurately too.  But then, you can improve your odds by getting a barrel which starts with a very high reputation.

    You could build your own custom regulated Marauder, then you could choose what brand of regulator you want. I am using a Huma on one .25 and a Altaros on a otherwise stock Armada  .25 cal with good results. The Altaros allows for tank OR reg. pressure readings depending on o-ring position. And on sale on eBay right now for 79.00 usd shipped. I think Huma speaks for itself but not much experience with the Altaros yet. I can’t remember which one Crosman uses but several manufacturers make them for Marauders/Armadas. Huma even has one especially for the .30 cal. conversion. Not too hard to install a regulator,, but a pain to de air and pull to change settings if you are custom tuning. Great to set and forget. A .25 cal. Marauder with a Green Mountain barrel, although choked, is on par with LW barrel.

    Thats my humble opinion.

    Just be aware that if you buy regulated from crosman, you'll only get about 20 fpe from the rifle. Not enough plenum for more. Best to build your own if you want more juice.

    My first experience with the "custom shop" was pretty disappointing and led me to believe they had a loose crew of crackheads working there.   I'm trying them again, and hopefully I can realize a bit of awesomeness coming from there this time.

    I have had nothing but very good luck and service from the custom shop.  I guess YMMV.  Brian

    I would recommend getting a .22 LW barrel installed in the rifle from Crosman – but then putting your own regulator, lightweight hammer, aftermarket hammer spring, etc. in the rifle.

    The HUMA regulators are a bit more reliable (and easier to adjust) than the factory Crosman ones in my opinion.  They cost about the same.

    I did that for my .177 FT Mrod and I'm very happy with it. I get about 75-80 at ~18FPE with 2-4 fps stddev.

    The Marauder is a great platform.

    Good luck,

    Nico

    Yeah I really shouldn't talk bad about them, but I did recieve a gun (after waiting way longer than anybody should have to) that was completely put together wrong (crooked front sight, misaligned valve, and TP leaking like crazy).  

    They did take it back, and after 5 weeks finally refunded my money, so I was only out the shipping and 2 months worth of shooting. 

    I am giving them a second chance, but only because I can't find what I want anywhere else.  Surely they'll come thru better this time around.

    Pyramyd Air sells a Marauder with LW barrel in 22 caliber w/no regulator which can be added.

    The Air Gun Nation coupon would make for a nice discount.

    if you buy a regulated  mrod your stuck with the reg…. not enough room to chang the reg to a huma, im currently changing the tube on mine  so I can get a better tune and not hear the ping , if you increase your power output with the crosman reg, you get the "PING" and my gun shoots erratic above 2600 psi, , crosman needs to move the gage port foreward to allow for a better regulator,  your kind of stuck with their funky little reg if tou get a regulated mrod, , my "opinion" just buy a mrod with a newer barrel and now you have a gun you can work with,  good luck!

    For what it's worth I also have the .25 and it's more accurate than I am! With jsb exact 25gr it is scary accurate. At 50 yes it is capable of one ragged hole if I do my part, my friends and I play "kick the can" at 100yrds with the 8oz Baby cans….. If you don't hit it , your fault!

    I wouldn't spend extra money on the LW barrel.  The Green Mountain barrels are excellent in their own right, and any difference in accuracy at airgun ranges between can likely be measured in hundredths/thousandths of inches…in the hands of an experienced shooter with a good scope!  

    The Huma reg is the only way to go.  

    Spend the money you save on that LW barrel on a decent DonnyFL moderator and you will be able to shoot anywhere with no one being the wiser.  I've shot mine in the house, and my wife was in the other room watching TV.  A good moderator makes happy neighbors too!  Backyard shooting is a great way to spend a quiet afternoon.

    " The Green Mountain barrels are excellent in their own right "

    they were good but you would need to buy used to get one.

    Spysir,

    When did Crosman stop using the Green Mountain barrel on their .25 cal. Marauders? I was under the impression that GM was their.25 cal supplier of barrels. What year marauders have the GM barrels?

    I got the full package camo stock, regulated, LW barrel in .177, and lifetime warranty.  I pretty well drop everything I pull the trigger on now.  I’m shooting heavies at 780 FPS and get 117 consistent shots before I refill.  Ragged holes on paper-and I didn’t lift a finger chasing down parts. No regrets here at all plus it is very quiet.  I shoot hundreds of rounds out of the shop window sometimes if it’s cold out with the wood stove going-life is good
