Well this whole "made in america" being absent on the .25 got me to wondering so I called Green Mountain as I still maintain an account with them
Foxed around a bit on the phone, told them I was interested in purchasing a limited run of blanks for airguns in .25, .30 & 9mm
"We don't make air gun barrels"
I understood you were supplying Crosman with .25 barrels?
"No I don't know where that rumor came from"
I do though...it was one of those self-serving, a little bird told me stories posted on the Yellow
quite likley the .25 barrels Crosman is using are Chinese contracted which explains why they deleted the Made in America legend and also why the .25 barrels are generaly speaking superior to the Crosman in house product...
after all Crosman maintains a close working relationship with the Red Chinese who supply a good bit of their product line.
Guess this kinda blows a huge hole in this Made in America mystique surrounding at least the .25 Marauder
I do give props to Crosman for pulling the Made in America legend off the .25 as a barrel is a bit more than springs and fasteners
You guys should be happy Crosman used a superior Red Chinese slave labor barrel rather than experimenting in house or dumping an extra hundred or more to get Green Mountain or LW to provide the blanks!
Its all Good!

The 25 cals are Green Mountain Barrels
Apparently I'm the only person so far that got a bum shooting one and in my correspondence with a Crosman engineer concerning a replacement barrel it was expressed that "the Green Mountain Barrels have been real good" and thus he was surprised I had a problem with one.
The replacement barrel shoots fine and if you look down the bore you can see it looks like a decently made barrel typical of american aftermarket quality, not like any chinese ( or Crosman ) barrel I have ever seen..
Hi Steve Russ Page at crosman told me Green Mnt, was making the barrels for the 25 MrodsSupercharged86 wrote:He (Gred Davis) told me the same thing in a conversation I had with him last month. And If there's one person out here that knows a thing or two about the Mrod it's him.
