Benjamin Marauder GEN2 Weight Loss (VIDEO)
« on: February 19, 2018, 08:39:58 PM »
Well New Years Resolutions are always made to lose weight and here is my MROD GEN2 .22 keeping its promise to lose a few pounds. I upgrade the heavy steel air tube with a Jefferson State Aluminum Cylinder and man does it lighten up the rifle!

The rifle will be torn down and reassembled with a JSAR Aluminum Air Cylinder, JSAR SS Balanced Valve, JSAR Super Hammer, JSAR TSS GEN2 and Huma regulator. The rifle will weigh almost 2 pounds less when this is all said and done. The MROD had most of these modifications already installed but I never documented the installation but have been promising you guys that I would, well here it is!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Oh, man. I can't wait to watch your video.. Stuck at work at the moment, so tonight...

My next airgun purchase is going to be concentrated on a light rifle with a long consistent shot string. I am mighty tired of heavy rifles....
