Was wonder if any of the legends of airguns got to help with R&D of the new Benjamin FT rifle?

New Benjamin Marauder FT Rifle

January 11 2017, 7:50 AM 

Here's a link for more info, its going to be released at SHOT shot:
http://www.ammoland.com/2017/01/crosman-unveils-advancements-in-airgun-technologies-at-shot-show/

"The new Benjamin Marauder Field and Target Edition is the most versatile and accurate Marauder ever. The Marauder Field and Target Edition is built for both target shooting and hunting. It’s equipped with an externally adjustable regulator which allows the shooter to choose between unregulated full power shots for hunting, or regulated shots at lower velocity for target shooting."

The way I see it - look at all the FT winners in the USA and worldwide and their rifles. How many have externally adjustable regs? More power to them if they R&D'd a way to solve this but I'm skeptical.

Reread the title of that piece on HardAir magazine...

"Field and Target"... NOT field target

I'm one of the biggest crosman supporters around (and run the green Crosman forum) so I think I can be critical this one time....

If the pic on the HardAir article is accurate, then I still feel its not a TRUE FT rifle. The stock needs to be more suited to FT (although, yes many of us started, and some still shoot well with a classic/sporter stock), more along the lines of the Armada at the least.

FT rifles need to fit the shooter, and just having the factory wood stock is not enough IMO.....

BUT its s start, and if you already have a good stock laying around......

I agree

I was hoping to see it in the challenger stock with a Lothar Walther barrel and no shroud. It seems they are trying to fit a broad range of customers.

For the same price of adding the regulator (with tuned Marauder shot counts) They could have made a real FT winner. This is why I was wondering if they reached out or if they did the R&D them selves. I feel they missed the mark with this one.
