Accurate, Powerful, Ultra-Quiet PCP Air Rifle Now Available With Hardwood Stock
Crosman Corporation today announced its acclaimed Benjamin® Marauder® hunting air rifle will be available in a hardwood stock and features an ambidextrous comb that is height adjustable for a comfortable fit. Available in .177, .22 and .25 calibers, this Benjamin Marauder features an upgraded valve delivering a 30 percent increase in shot count and a nearly 15% increase in power, all while providing consistent velocities from the first pull of the trigger to the last. This rugged and well-balanced air rifle complements the popular synthetic stock Benjamin Marauder introduced in 2013.
According to Crosman Product Manager, Linda Mosack, “The 2014 Marauder is packed with advantages for hunters, from the new stock that is more comfortable to carry, to even better sound suppression, plus accuracy and affordability” she said. “The new Marauder is precision-engineered for serious hunters and will have no problems dispatching game as large as fox, turkeys and coyotes,” according to Mosack.
The shot capacity of the Marauder has been increased, with shooters getting over 30 shots per fill in .177 and .22 calibers and up to 17 shots with the .25 caliber Marauder. “The checkered hardwood stock features an adjustable comb providing every shooter with a custom fit, and by improving the position of the trigger, the gun is even more comfortable for hunters and target shooters,” said Mosack. Adjustments to the stock also include a change in the angle of the grip so there is less hand and arm fatigue during long hours in the field. “The gun now accommodates right or left-handed shooters with its ambidextrous bolt, and the newly designed breech provides additional stability for larger optics,” she said.
The new Marauder features a two-stage, adjustable, match-grade trigger, and an innovative multi-round magazine for rapid follow-up shots. The bolt handle shape has been updated for ease of use, and the built-in pressure gauge and quick-disconnect Foster fittings make the gun quick and easy to charge. “Easier to fill and more shots per fill means more shooting fun,” says Mosack.
The new Benjamin Marauder has an MSRP of $700 and will be available at retail in the summer of 2014.
