BLOOMFIELD, New York – Benjamin, the premiere hunting brand of Crosman Corporation, has been recognized by the readers of Predator Xtreme magazine as their Favorite Airgun. This is the fourth straight year Benjamin has won the Readers Choice GOLD award, winning it previously in 2015, 2014 and 2013.

The annual survey covers 36 outdoor product categories and is billed as the “gear hard-core predator hunters rely on when they are in the field chasing fur”. The Marauder pre-charged pneumatic rifle has built a reputation of dependability, accuracy and quietness.

“We are proud to once again have the Benjamin Marauder  recognized by the readers of Predator Xtreme,” said Jennifer Lambert, VP Marketing for Crosman. “The Marauder delivers tremendous value and to have this group of serious hunters select it as their favorite is testament to its performance and quality.”

The Benjamin Marauder is available with a wood or synthetic stock and in .177, .22 or .25 caliber. Benjamin’s line of pre-charged pneumatics include the Discovery, the recently announced Maximus, the AR-styled Armada and the Pioneer Airbow that fires arrows at 450 FPS.
