New member from Hudson Valley.
« on: December 17, 2017, 04:20:02 PM »
I’m New from the lower Hudson Valley in NY just south of West Point. I been into guns for a long time but less than 1 year in air rifles. My current rifles are Hatsan Gladius in 22 caliber, Edgun Leshiy in 22&25 caliber, FX Crown 25 caliber Edgun Matador Huma Magnum in 25 caliber and very shortly my next project is a Benjamin Marauder in 25 caliber. I do mostly target shooting up to 200 yards and plinking. I have added this site to the many I use as a source for learning more about making the guns I own into consistent accurate shooters. I have a Carette compressor also.

Welcome! You came to the right place!

One very nice thing about the Marauder is the availability of after-market modification parts. For example, replacing the stock transfer port to a .162 size (.25 caliber), and installing a TSS (from ART) will net just over 900 FPS using 25.4 grain pellets, using about the same air quantity as a stock Marauder. Total spent, under $100 including shipping.

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.
