:???: I have a Browning Buckmark Pro .22 with the tru-glow front sight. I am a lousy shot with this gun, but it is fun to plink with. Am considering putting an holographic sight on an Weaver style assessory rail in place of the regular sights. To do so, I have to remove the top rail with the adjustable sight on it, and replace it with the assessory Weaver style rail. I forsee a possible problem though. The screws for the top rail are approx. 4 3/4 inches apart. When the gun has to be cleaned you have to remove them both to take the gun apart. So if the holographic sight is attached to the accessory rail, when I take the accessory rail off to clean the gun (the sight will still be attached to the rail), WILL I THEN LOSE MY ZEROING IN WHEN I REATTACH THE ACCESSORY RAIL TO THE GUN?

I have several other questions also.

1. Does anyone have the Buckmark? How do you like it?
2. Has anyone mounted an holographic sight onto an handgun? How has it worked for you & what sight are you using on it.
3. What is your opinon about an holographic vs. an red dot?

I haven't used either kind, but it appears to me that the holographic would be quicker to get on target with. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated. :???:

I've never owned a Buckmark so I can't help you with most of your questions.

As far as removing the rail and re-attaching it afterwards, some designs are real good about it and some aren't. I'd think that you would be close even if its not dead on still.

One thing you could do is, once you get it mounted and zero'd, put a little paint dot at both ends of the rail and on both sides. The paint should cover part of the rail and part of the gun so when you remove the rail part of the dot is still on the gun and part is on the rail. This way, when you put it back together you can see how close you are to where it was before. Just be careful not to remove the paint while cleaning.
