The internet is really full of modifications to the Marauders. Depingers and home trigger jobs and air performance adjustments out the ying yang. Considering the performance I am seeing with Beeman Kodiaks or JSBs I am not changing a thing for a while. The discussions that I thought was interesting though was adjusting the performance (hammer preload, air flow, etc) to flatten the velcoity curve when shooting strings. Are folks really messing with this stuff? Is so what results/consequences. Also, it sounds as if the more recent guns (mine is a new .25) are tuned differently than the first ones released. If so how so?

The wife got me a chrony for xmas and I've played with settings on my .25 Mrod a little bit. I was only getting 16 good shots with the jsbs with the stock settings. After some tuning I've got it running at 880 fps with jsbs. I get around 20 good shots per fill. . I was able to get well over 900 fps with the jsbs but the shot count went way down. I think I'm going to turn her down to get the 20gr Beeman fts to about 850 fps. I hope to get 3 mags with it set like that. They group real well at that velocity. Tuning the gun can be a lot of work and gets expensive but can be worth it to get the gun shooting just right.
