I love 22lr handguns I have a ruger MK II Gov target, MK III 22/45 target, sr 22, S&W 41, RIA XT 22, GSG 1911 22, Advantage arms 1911 conversion kit, Ruger single six and a Dan Wesson 22lr pistol pac. I am getting ready to add a Browning Buckmark and looking for advice I want 5.5 inch barrel prefer wood (look) grips, Bull barrel or flat side bull barrel, fiber sights, what do I need to know about the buckmarks to make a good choice? How is the reliability of the buckmarks? are they ammo picky? accuracy ?

I thought the Dan Wesson 22lr pistol pac would be the one that would make you drool. I bought my 1st 22lr a Marlin Glenfield model 60 in 1973 (I was 13 and cut a lot of grass to get the $49.00) at Sky City department store(I still have it )

My Buckmark Camper (bull 5" barrel and rubber grip panels) is an excellent shooter, no ammo issues , unless you go subsonic. I don't have any complaints to share, ergo's are great, accuracy is as good I am on any given day. It and my 22/45 are about equal in accuracy etc..

I have an older Browning Buck mark Medalist. its got the flat slab barrel and I like that better than the bull /or round barrel as its a good bit lighter in the front end, while still be enough weight to be stable when firing.
Mine runs as good as my Ruger MK III, the MK II that I had, and the 2 beretta neos that I have now.
actually about the only ammo that I consistently have trouble with on every semi auto 22 that I have Is the Winchester bulk, I don't even look at that now.
I added a fiber optic front sight as I am an old man, old man eyes, and shaky hands.
plus recently pulled my back muscles and tendons in both hands after I was so rudely challenged to a shoot off by one of our members!!
but anyway heres mine.
I wouldn't step over a Buck mark to buy a MK and I wouldn't step over a MK to buy a Buck mark myself.

The Dan Wesson sounds nice, but I have little experience with 'em. A good friend of mine, however, was a Bullseye shooter and I would shoot his 41 from time to time. MAN, that thing was sweet. So was his M52, a semi auto that fed .38 WC. :D

I hadn't even considered a .22LR handgun until I saw your post and checked out the Brownings. Now I want one desperately! I'll be watching the responses here and will be interested in what you decide on.

No, they are not picky with ammo....at least mine is not. I have an older 4" barreled one, that has probably a couple thousand rounds through it. It is a wonderful little plinker.

I have the same gun as olfarhors and can only concur with what he said. Trigger is butter smooth and it shoots about anything I've run through it. I put a cheap red dot on it a few years ago and decimated the tree rat population around the house. I've owned a few MK's and the Buckmark will shoot with any of them.

Olfarhors, let me help you out. I'll give $125 for the pistol pack, I'd hate to see you suffer through that and it would keep my 8inch Dan company in the dark closet of shame.

The Buck Mark is not any more ammo picky than other 22 pistols. You will have to clean it more often than a Ruger mk, about as often as a Neos or Woodsman. I found the wood grips to be too slick, the set on mine were not checkered like the Ruger mk target grips. The new Buck Marks with the rubber grips are excellent in all weather conditions. Some models have ears on the side of the slide that don't look as good but offer a positive purchase on the slide. Any of the Buck Marks I've tried are more accurate than I. There is a little inconsistency in the trigger of the factory models, some are like butter hitting glass and some are like breaking a twig. The Ruger mk i and ii are much more consistent. For this reason you should find one in stock to buy rather than ordering online.

Good luck. You have good taste with that existing collection. The $50 rebate ends July 15th.

OK!
I just didn't want the OP to get STIUCK with the gun!
125 sounds reasonable to me and more than I am willing to pay.
so let the sale begin!
I was just going to use it as breeding stock with my DW and see if I could get a litter of model 15's anyway>
thanks for baling me out!
