The new Marauder goes lightweight with a new, all-weather, synthetic stock. Featuring an ambidextrous raised comb, it’s well-balanced for carrying in the field. This powerful PCP air rifle offers all the features needed for pest hunting small to medium sized game. The choked and internally shrouded barrel provides both precision and ultra-hushed operation, producing the most accurate and quietest rifle in its class. The two-stage, adjustable, match-grade trigger system helps to make every shot smooth and steady, while the innovative 10-round magazine allows for fast follow-up shots. With the built-in pressure gauge and quick-disconnect Foster fittings, this gun is quick and easy to fill so you can refill and return to shooting sooner.
- All-weather synthetic stock designed and balanced with field carry in mind. Features an adjustable comb for a custom fit.
- Moved the trigger rearward where, when combined with the redesigned stock, provides a more comfortable hand position.
- Reversible bolt - First built for the Marauder Pistol, it's now been adapted to the rifle. The "mouse hole" / bolt stud protrusion has also been eliminated for a cleaner look and to keep the action debris-free.
- Simplified the breech design for assembly, service and to provide a more stable platform for larger scopes.
- A 30% increase in shot count (.22 & .177).
- Factory installed de-pinger changes the sharp "ping" to a dull thud resulting in a less-perceived noise level.
*No instructions are included for reversing the bolt. Please contact a Crosman Service Center for assistance.

Marauder Rifle .22 Synthetic Stock
Marauder Rifle .22 Synthetic vs Trail NP2 Rifle .22 Synthetic
- Recoil, there is no recoil on the mrod to speak of. I can now watch the pellet hit the target thru the scope, yeah. The NP2 has a great deal of recoil so forget watching the pellet thru the scope.
- Trigger, the Mrod's 2nd stage trigger is so easy to pull, it improves accuracy quite a lot. The NP2's trigger is good, but much harder to pull and the weight is not adjustable.
- Weight, the Mrod weighs about 1lb lighter, but the rifle is more balanced so it feels more than 1lb. lighter than the NP2.
- Accuracy, now here is where they are very much different. I used the same pellets, CPHPs from Walmart (washed) and the same scope, Leapers UTG Accushot 4-16x44 swat AO compact 30 mm tube. With the NP2 I've been trying to get groups under 1.25 inches (on my best days), but never was able to. On the Mrod it took 5 shots to zero the scope and then the next five shots went in the same hole. My mouth is still wide open I did not think the Mrod would be that good. My paper targets have always been at a measured 30 yards from the day I got the NP2. I use a high back chair with a towel over the back of it to protect the rifle from scratches. I'm standing up for every shot I've ever made with either rifle. After trying the JSB exact jumbo heavy 18.13gr and the H&N FTT 14.66gr (ordered with my Mrod) my results varied somewhat. The JSBs are the worst of the groups at .75 inches and the FTTs are almost as good as the CPHPs at .5 inches. The CPHPs are still king at .3 inches or less. I did clean the barrel of the Mrod right out of the box just like I did with the NP2.
- Overall fit and finish, the Mrod is not as good to me as the NP2. The plastic just feels cheaper, but the addition of the adjustable comb is very nice to have on the Mrod.
- Shootablity, I love the 10 round magazine on the Mrod. No more breaking the barrel over to load another pellet. The NP2 is very easy to break over which is a plus.
In closing, I like the Mrod much better. It is much easier to shoot overall and is by far quieter and more accurate. I have not touched the factory setting on the Mrod yet, but I can if I want to. I'm shooting with more confidence now and not as much worried about my close neighbors. I got my money back on the NP2 at the store and that made everything sweeter too. Using the Benjamin hand pump is no big deal and doesn't take long plus you get at least 35 or more good strong shots with no drop before refilling which is plenty for a session of shooting for me. I don't let the pressure drop below 2000 psi before refilling which takes around 60 pumps to get back to 3000 psi for another 35 rounds of shooting the next day.
The NP2 is a great rifle I really had a lot of fun with it. It was quiet and powerful. If that was all the money I had that would be my choice of a break barrel rifle. I truly believe it is the best gas springer out there right now (10-9-14).
If you are on the fence about getting the .22 Marauder you will be very pleased if you take the plunge. Just remember, you can always make more money.

I shoot out to 1000 meters with a Savage Model 10 in .338. I am into ballistics, bullet drop, and MOA's.
I put down my last pellet rifle when I was 16 years old, so I wouldn't say that I am an air gun guy.
I had a chance to shoot this rifle about a year ago. I had a laugh when I was told how much it cost, and it took a lot of convincing for me to take it seriously, but after the first shot I did not need any more convincing. It's very heavy. It is also very accurate, has zero recoil, a great trigger and it is so quiet at 1000 fps that you'll want to get your ears checked.
It may use compressed air as a propellant, and a 15-20 grain projectile doesn't have any legs past 100 meters or so. That does not change the fact that this is a fine rifle. Notice that I do not say that it is a fine "air gun" or even a fine "air rifle";
I say: It is a fine rifle.
