I spoke with Pyramyd Air and returned the gun. They really are great to work with. I didn't turn it is for exchange, I turned it in for refund. Now to decide what I want to do next because I want a good airgun. I would have been very happy with this gun if it grouped per their reputation. I didn't really like the scope but would have left well enough alone. I'm sure I don't want the combo, I will buy a scope separate.3 things I wanted were accuracy, good trigger, and quiet. Accuracy didn't work out. Loved the gun other than that. I'm impressed by the higher end guns and would love one but then I will wind up with too much gun and something I can't use on my property.If the regulated marauder came with a synthetic stock that is what I would buy. Nice stock but heavier I don't know if I want that. I liked the weight and feel of the synrod, not near as front end heavy as my friends Gauntlet.Should I just get the regulated marauder and deal with the increased weight or buy a synthetic marauder and regulate it?Barry
I sent an email to Crosman tech last week to inquiring about this and got a reply today. They attached a "tuning guide" but it is really just start numbers for settings. I have read so many posts including several that indicated they never got factory settings. Maybe this is just that. I'll try it this am. Its for the .177, the .22, and the .25 Marauder. I'll give them a try.Here they are:Benjamin Marauder Tuning BP1764Hammer Spring – 3 turnsStriker – 8 turnsValve Meter – 2 turnsBP2264 / BTAP22Hammer Spring – 3 turnsStriker – 6.5 / 7 turnsValve Meter – 2 turnsBP2564 BTAP25Hammer Spring – 3.5 turnsStriker – 4 turnsValve Meter 3.5 turns
I know that it got sent back, but I don't understand how it went from 1/8"-1/4" to huge groups unless something else happened, and I am not suggesting that the OP screwed it up.
