I want a Marauder in .22 cal, but I have read of too many issues with the .22 barrel to pull the trigger to get one. As of mthis posting, I have yet to find a recent article claiming that the issues are fixed. However, the internet is abound with posts saying to forget the .22 and go for the .25 cal. Since I would like to do Field Target competition, I believe that the .25 cal Marauder is out...and I can't bring myself to consider the .177 cal.
Can anyone tell me whether or not the .22 cal barrel issues have been fixed? Crosman seems to be straight forward with their customers, even listening to their ideas for fixes, would they admit to me there is an issue with the .22 cal barrel? And would Crosman tell me they have fixed it or are working on it?
Lots of questions surrounding the .22 cal...even from me.
