I was testing that exact thing yesterday.....On this Marauder, I get 35-36 shots before the POI (Point of Impact) starts falling at all. I don't own a chronograph, but suspect with these type of guns, it only takes a 25-30 fps drop in muzzle velocity to start seeing a noticeable drop in the POI. The tank on this gun is 105cc, with a 3000psi max. So far, that 35-36 shots takes the psi down to just a tad under 2000.... so it's not that much to push the pressure back up to 3000psi.How many times can you shoot it before you have to refill the air pressure?
I bet it's horrible up there in Havre.... because it's hitting 50-60mph in Great Falls! And.....supposed to be lots of sloppy snow heading in!Got back out again for a little bit yesterday, walked a smallish field. Watched a young badger laugh at me while we were setting up. Not many out, but it's fun to be there, practiced doping the wind, got a few. Today it's a howling!
If you ordered the Yong Heng, it comes with what you need.Ed, did your compressor come with the fitting to connect directly to the Benjamin Marauder? My compressor should be here Thursday and I'm wondering what I'll need to get air into the Benjamin Marauder I've got. I'd also like to fill my scuba tanks but will wait to see what I need for that.
Check out the Diana Stormrider. I have two of them in .22 cal and I have had no trouble with either one and I have had them over two years. The .177 is a little louder (breaks sound barrier) but it is cheaper than even the .22.I really like what those Marauders are doing, but it's just a bit north of what I'm willing to spend just yet, though they are really reasonably priced when you consider the whole of the PCP market.
I did just about two weeks ago order a Hatsan 105X (under lever gas piston) in 25 caliber that's due end of April.
