I just bought a Browning Buck Mark

A bud of mine is really sick. He needed some cash. I handed him $300. The box says Camper Nickel SE Molded Composite Pro Target 5 1/2" Bull. It is a 2004 model. My bud says 10 rds through it and from the condition of the gun I believe it.

Anybody know anythang about the Buck Mark?

I'll post a pic when the wife wakes up...she does that kind of stuff...

Oh and my bud is gonna be okay...getting over lung infection but gonna make it but he wouldn't take straight charity he insisted I go home with this because he knows I like handguns and he ended up with because he helped a guy move several years ago and this was payment.

Imma shoot it and enjoy the price of .22lr I guess...

Great guns. Mine is 25 years old this year and still operates as new.

Great guns, and a great way to help a bud out. You gave him a fair price too, maybe too much, but I bet that's what you were looking to do. Not many left out there who won't take a straight handout. Take him shooting when he gets better ! Always keep a good .22 around . Better than cash !!!!!

My Buckmark is my favorite 22LR pistol of all time.

Accurate, easy to clean and fun to shoot.

Mine LOVEs standard and sub-sonic ammo, but will chamber and shoot anything.

But with the right ammo, cloverleaf groups are possible from a bench rest.

Search the interwebs and you may find a sale on magazines. I bought a bunch three years ago for $13 ea, I think.

These are among the best value modern field grade .22 rimfire pistols you will find.

You will have great difficulty outshooting a buckmark. If you ever want to see just what kind of precision they are capable of, mount a scope to it and shoot it off a bench. 1/2" groups at 25y are possible with these pistols out of the box.

the newer version is a little different then the older version. I have had mine for some 25 years. I shot one and liked it so much I bought one and then my friends shot mine and they bought there’s. after some 5000 rounds the buffer broke in pieces (browning says it is designed to wear out) and the firing pin broke in two( stamped metal pc). Browning said that was very uncommon but no big deal 8 dollars later and that was for two of each I am back to shooting again. This is my all the time range gun so I can shoot until I get tired and not run out of ammo and it is a great gun to pass around to friends when we are there so they can shoot too. Introducing woman and kids to shooting is what this gun is all about because they can hit the targets and build confidence

they sell a plasic speed loader that holds the spring down when you load. this will save you thumbs

Congratulations. The Buckmark has a terrific out of the box trigger. I love mine. Just don't dry fire the gun.

In general, dry-firing a rimfire is a no-no, as the firing pin tends to slam into the chamber wall, and can either leave an indentation in the chamber wall (making firing inconsistent), or can chip or crack the firing pin.

My Browning Buckmark...

You're gonna love it...


Here's a pic of my Browning Buckmark in 22lr, bought used for $175. Came with the red dot scope and ten magazines ( yup...10 ). She is a true tack driver...

Browning Buckmark... 22LR... 5 1/2" barrel

Rimfire Forum

The Buck Mark pistol is designed with a straight blowback action, and is crafted using aluminum alloy. It began production in 1985 and is still produced today. The Buck Mark replaced both the Challenger and International pistol models.

The Browning doesn't employ a firing pin stop assembly or similar design?

Rimfire Forum

And ummm...y'all this is prolly the best investment I have ever made as far as shooting goes! 2000 rounds down the tube now and I cain't stop shooting this little dream.

The price of .22lr and the sweetness of this little gun is just something I never expected. I'm very pleased with the performance of this little beast...

2000 rounds and I ain't lubed or cleaned the Buck...so so accurate...I never thought a .22lr would be so much fun...

Totally enjoying splurging on the CCI Velocitors! Shooting these after shooting cheapo .22 ammo is like .40 compared to 9mm. You can feel the difference...

Velocitors outta my lil Bucky FTW!

Oh yah that's my G26 in the pic too...another lil dream gun I picked up! Don't get me started...

Nice picture, the Buckmark and the G26 look good together! FWIW, the CCI Blazer ammo, plain old 40gr round nose ammo, is really economical and very accurate in all the various 22's I own. I like all the various CCI 22 ammo, even the expensive Green Tag. The Federal Game Shok ammo is good stuff also, I don't much care for the Federal Lightning 22 ammo. I'm convinced that the guys I know that shoot a LOT of 22 LR are better shots with Center Fire ammo as well. I guess it just stands to reason that if you shoot a lot, you'll become a better shooter. I spend a lot of time shooting 22 rifles and am never bored doing it. You can spend several hours at a range shooting a 22 and not break the bank! I have become a really good varmint shooter over the years and love to hunt squirrels

Yah...I ummm...well yah...I've even started shooting the cheap .22 ammo and the Blazer LRN you speak of is good stuff...

My current favorite is Velocitors but the cheapo Blazer and American Eagle LRN stuff is great for plinking...

And thanks for saying the G26 and Bucky look good together...my buddy said, "cute" when I showed him the pic but I couldn't get him to turn loose of the buckmark in person...

Buck Marks are great shooting guns. We shoot them in Steel Challenge and do very well with them.

I designed the compensator for them, and it works great. I also have a 9mm Open gun, but the 22's are fun to shoot!
