    Quick question! besides from getting the .25 breech and barrel, to go from .177 to .25 I would need the .25 valve as well right?

    Gen 1 or 2 ?   Original Gen1 ( may have changed after a couple of years? Someone will know) had a different valve for the .177/ .22  and the .25. A preformance gain could be had switching in the .25 valve.
     Sometime ( ??? ) before the Gen2 model the valves were unitized with all cal. being the same.

    Transfer port may be different?

Hey John, Yeah I have a gen 2 marauder. I’ve seen that it is easier to change calibers with the gen 2 due to the flexibility of the parts.

    Air Venturi Sells a single valve for .177 and .22.
    They sell a different valve for the .25 

    Both look identical externally but have different internals.

    The .177 / .22 valve will work in the .25 but it will not develop as much power as the .25 valve.

    I priced out the conversion parts  2 years ago and the cost was not worth it to me when new Marauders can be had at Cabelas and other Big Stores (Buds Gun Shop, Grab A Gun) for as little as $350 on occasion.

Yeah I’m seeing the price I have to pay steadily increasing I might just settle and turn it into a .22. It is much easier to convert to that.
