I saw a good one in action the other day. Every bit as accurate as my 500 at 40 yards. And almost as silent. Kevin T., I say again....don't sell it, you'll regret it.

Some may say its carryabliity is one of its low marks, but Kevin got out the belt sander and shaved about 2 lbs off the stock and gave it a coat of bed liner and it looked great.

Shot count is a little low but good enough for hunting.

For the money, in .25 cal, you simply cannot beat it.

No open sights, but can't think of a .25 with open sights.

Heck, put a red dot on it if you don't use scopes.






All of us could take a lesson
from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

It can be had in .25 and IIRC it is in the low 40 fpe range. When I ordered my .22 I had asked Kip from AOA about iron sights and he said they were available at extra cost. Accuracy is excellent, my .22 would do less than a half inch at 57 yards, it was very light weight and well balanced. I'm not sure about the shots per fill on the .25 but the Slingshot hammer set up is very efficient, I was getting 45 to 50 with the .22 so I'd guess at least 20 if not more in .25. Mine was very dependable, zero issues and i shot it almost every day for several months. I never adjusted the power but my understanding is it can be done. Trigger was awesome to begin with but was adjustable. Superb field gun, all it needs is a set of sling swivels and It's a Daystate so parts and service won't be a problem with AOA.

unless you get the type of open sights on the AF Edge, the ones you get for the condor, talon and SS are not very easily used.

never squat down while wearing your spurs...will rogers

my grandpa to make a new stock for it and then give it as a gift to my dad. It is the only Marauder I have ever held or shot but I was very impressed. I still have those targets from that day.
