    Hmmm, I just moved to Alabama where silencers are legal. But my 10 1/2" Tactical Solutions barrel shoots so well I don't want to possibly mess it up. And they don't make that length anymore.

    I have a Camper that I bought used for $200, which I thought was a great deal, even though it needed some minor parts and a serious cleaning. Shoots great now, but I "think" I might get better balance out of it with a longer or heavier barrel. Those barrels just swap right out, don't they? Seems like there's an Allen screw to loosen and that's it? Well, the rear sight mount too....

  3. I bought a brand new one that had been customized by Lipsey. The put a Browning licensed barrel on it with a threaded adapter for a silencer. Whenever I have the funds for one, I think I will buy a silencer for it because that is just too cool lol!

    Can't imagine putting a can on a 10 1/2 inch barrel.

    I've had a Buckmark 5.5" slabside since '94 or '96, and it has been my favorite and most accurate .22 pistol period. No feed issues with any ammo[in recent memory], I added a dot of red nail polish on the front sight for help in indoor ranges, but love the pistol.
    I just recently traded in a problematic Beretta Neos for a new SS Buckmark with a 5.5" bull barrel. I took it apart and exchanged the factory oil for some lighter gun oil, then took it out today for it's initial break in. In a pouring rain. I fired 100 rounds before wimping out due to cold/wet conditions. Sights were dead-on against a 6" polymer ball, but I was mostly looking for function today.
    60 rounds of Federal American Eagle 40g LRN HV gave me two failures to extract spent rounds, one dud that wouldn't fire on a second chance, and one fail to feed. 40 rounds of bulk Browning 40g LRN HV gave me no issues. I've had problems with American Eagle unplated before. I'll need a session indoors with a greater variety of ammo at some exact distances to feel better, but I'm still impressed with the Buckmark.

    I don't have a Buckmark. Now you got me obsessing about needing to fill that empty hole...

  10. This pistol is a great shooter, love it! They feed with no issues, have had only ammo quality issues as far as reliability...I found it locally for a great deal pre-plandemic..

  12. Jerry,
    Aren't these pistols the best thing this side of Ruger MK1,2,3,4? Their triggers are much crisper and the sights are flat out more usable....love my Rugers but the Browning...edges!
