Each is 77.5 DPS base and each adds 36AP. You're not going to see any difference in overall output, but depending on how some abilities are affected by the attack speed you may see differences in burst potential. Sorry I'm not well versed in hunter abilities just yet to be able to tell you much more.
Grand Marshal's Repeater
is the best of the three weapons. Since normalization, weapon speed doesn't have as much of an effect of our DPS, but slower is still better. Though, if you're a dwarf, go for the gun hands down. 1% crit is lovely. If you're not a dwarf, go for the crossbow. Either way, none of them are a terrible investment and should last you until mid - late Outland content.
It's all a matter of what you want from your hits.
Pezwar nailed it for dwarves, so I recommend the gun too for the little ones.
The difference between the bow and the crossbow are not the DPS, but the time between the shots.
At the same DPS, if you just want more damage per hit, go for the crossbow, but if your playstyle includes more buffs/debuffs that are bounded to the shots you are doing, the more shots you do, the more buffs/debuffs you can imply on your target, resulting in the bow as a better option.
I don't recommend you to buy both, but at least try with lesser quality weapons that are equal in DPS, and see what adapts more to your gameplay.
