Anyone order one of these? If so how do you like it? I selected the Breakup Country stock. I called Crosman to see if they would tune it to 850 fps but they said no. No biggie, I will have to tune it for max efficiency at that velocity anyways, depending on what pellet it likes. I have no experience with a Marauder-hope I don't regret pulling the trigger on this thing. Oh, I also got a lifetime warranty on the gun for only 10 bucks more-can't beat that!

I bought the Custom Shop regulated Marauder with the Crosman barrel not the LW barrel in 177 caliber with a 20% discount two weeks before Christmas. So far it prefers the Crosman Premier Heavy 10.5 grain pellets the most. I am still in process to find the best pellet for it. So far, it provides very consistent velocities up to 70-75 shots at 875 FPS with 10.5 grain Crosman pellets. They advertise 85 shots for 177 caliber. It is a decent rifle. I bought it to be used as a loaner rifle for my field target club. So far it is can be used accurately out to 55 yards. I did disable the lawyer spring to get a one pound trigger pull.

I will carry this from the house to the shop, general around the property use. Hope these are as quiet as the old ones as I have neighbors. But I will also use for hunting. I do plan to retune down to about 800-830. Hope it gets here soon rather than later.

It is very quiet shooting gun in 177 caliber. You can adjust the transfer port screw inward to reduce the velocity to your desired setting. It took less than two weeks to get it on December 26th. I do not think they are going to sell a lot of them. They are competing against the $300 Gauntlet.

Ok-got it around the end of january.  Mine too likes the CPH 10.5gr in the box.  Tuned down to  just under 800 with these.  It will shoot 7.9 grain about 840fps.  I'd like to post a picture of the gun and some targets but don't know how.  Isn't there a way to upload of my computer or do I have to get an image hosting account? 

Anyway, I also reduced the hammer spring tension along with that.  It shoots lights out and very consistent on the chrony.  I have a crappy UTG 4-14 on there now which is a heavy boat anchor to boot.  I'm thinking of putting on the Leupold 3x9x33 EFR-only weighs 11 oz.  I would like to lighten the rifle alot and I think the UTG is roughly 30oz.  If that' not enough I may put on an aluminum air tube from JSAR.  I really like the rifle-dropped everything I've had in my sights so far not a single miss.  It shoots 3/8" groups at 25 yds with unsorted pellets.  I may try sorting after putting on the other scope to see how much more accuracy I can squeeze out of it

Oh-I get 117 shots per fill, consistent shots-down to around 1450psi as read on the gauge.  I'm pretty thrilled with that.  My max distance is about 50-60 yards and so far no issues with noise at all.  I'll shoot 2-3 hours at times.  This is my first PCP, well, I sent back the streamline but I have no regrets
