Almost there, still need to get some tape on the 6" side wheel, and mount it, plus I need to relieve a bit in the trigger well to allow the light adjustment screw to open a pit on the trigger assembly.

That certainly is a nice looking Marauder. It looks like it would weigh a ton and have no idea how it shoots with the new barrel, but she sure is pretty.

The rifle is definitely no slouch... the weight is best suited for field target use, but not as a carry rifle in the woods etc.

The 3X12 scope sitting on the rifle was purchased for hunter FT, and now that the rules have changed to allow 16X capable glass, I am debating changing it out. I really like this MTC glass, it looks really nice on this Marauder.

I just picked up a gen 1 177 Marauder yesterday that also says made in the USA like yours. I have no clue as to the age. The hammer has the top front hole threaded with a set screw and a nylon button inside. I hear they only did that on the first rifles (which they should still be doing on all rifles). Seems to be plenty accurate at 30 yards. I will start the tuning process soon and plan to totally redo the stock and try to make it pretty.

"Born-on" date is determined by the serial number on the front of the airtube.

Thanks. I looked and mine says: 909120043. What does that mean? Where did you get that stock for yours? That stock is incredible.

**Edit** I just did a quick search and if I understand it correctly mine was built in Sept. 2009 and was the 43rd rifle built that month. I guess that tells me when it was built but I have no clue as to the overall production numbers to know how many were made before it.

2009 is excellent vintage :D

The stock I bought from a guy off the yellow forum classifieds. I just posted a want to buy, and he called me and gave me a choice of 3 stocks. The one I selected was the nicest of the three.

regarding your stock; the older stocks were know to have some character... by that I mean you could see the wood grain nicely. Is this the case with your stock?

I wish that was my case. Mine is Gen 1 butt ugly.
