    Anyone ever used a Benjamin Marauder PCP .22 air rifle? I am considering purchasing one, and would like to know if anybody has any hands-on experience with them.

    Before you buy you should probably plan how you intend to air it up. This is not a gun for young kids, in power or in price - plan that your air source is going to cost about as much as the gun. Some people use scuba tanks, if money is no object these are the fastest way to air up. A refill of a tank is about five bucks. But scuba tanks are costly, bulky, and heavy and require periodic inspection, another hassle and expense. There is also something called a"shoe-box" compressor that will pressurize your new gun to the 2900 psi it needs. These small compressors take hours, cost $500, and require ANOTHER compressor that can go to 120 psi. You hook the shore box up to your shop compressor and let it work for several hours. You can read review at http://airriflecenter.com before deciding buy it.

      Hello! I own it for 2 years. I just couldn't used to it. In fact I had really bad experience with it. I am happier now when I sold it and bought real rifle. Also bought great scope from: http://scopeshq.com/ Which runs the guy to whom I sold my Benjamin Marauder PCP

          They get good reviews.

          However, they look like a lot of trouble. I'm taking a different route and getting a .22 suppressor and will be using it with .22lr guns.
