Benjamin Prostaffer Chip Hunnicutt suggests the Marauder .25 for your next trip beyond the backyard...
"The Marauder from Benjamin feels great in the hand thanks to a stock designed to eliminate fatigue when carrying and to provide a better shooting position. The adjustable cheekpiece lets me make the rifle truly mine with a customized fit. The Marauder has stood apart for its accuracy, quiet operation and overall value and this new edition is right on the money: accurate enough for those critical head shots on predators or reaching raccoons in the treetop hideaways; a new dampener to lessen the 'ping' and make this baby so quiet critters will think they're hearing things; and a feature-to-price value that can't be beat.
This ProPick has everything a serious hunter needs: 4-16x44 optic, ammo plus an extra mag, and the awesome Marauder."
The Small Game Hunter's Pack includes:
- Benjamin Marauder .25 caliber PCP air rifle
- CenterPoint Game Adventure Class 4-16x44 mm scope with mounts
- Tin of 200 Benjamin Destroyer hunting pellets
- Extra pellet magazine

Small Game Hunter's Pack (.25)
This is a hunter's dream rifle. The scope is a good start but you'll want to upgrade it later.
Marauder .25 synthetic is a real winner!
The new synthetic stocked version of the .25 Marauder is much lighter and handier than the wood stocked version. The .25 caliber pellet @ 3K PSI hits like a sledgehammer and the accuracy is what I would expect from an air rifle costing 3-4 times as much. The shrouded barrel makes it very quiet and backyard friendly, even if you have nosy, not very friendly neighbors. This is a truly impressive package and very worthy as a hunting arm for small game!
The only downside here is the fact that you MUST have a near $200 hand pump, at the minimum, to charge the air tank for this rifle to be useful. A 90 cubic inch, 4500 psi tank & fill gear is much better, but more expensive and must be charged from hard to find sources.
The new Benjamin marauder .25 cal is an all out beast picking off pigeons from 50 yards! Also the all new synthetic stock make the rifle easier to carry. Overall this is my go to gun for hunting pigs to pigeon.
the plain gun and this version with scope and rings weigh the same? what with that crap? jus an observation.
