Crosman’s new Marauder Semi-Auto .22 PCP rifle is aimed at small game hunters.

The Maurader shoots .22 caliber pellets at a maximum of 950 fps, which is similar to a .22 LR pistol. The pellets are propelled from an internal air reservoir.

The Maurader is a pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) rifle. that means that you charge the internal reservoir with a compressor pump. The rifle has an internal regulator that ensures the proper air pressure behind each pellet. This gun shoots about 60 pellets per charge.

And it does it semi-automatically.

Unscrew the cap under the barrel and charge the reservoir with a standard air connection.

Chamber the first round with the AR-style ambidextrous charging handle. This new model has a new buffer tube to slow the action. Crosman claims that the gun will keep up with you as fast as you can pull the trigger. It’s intended as a small-game hunting rifle and fast followup shots will be a boon.
