A friend of mine has a Buck Mark. Nice pistol, he only had to replace the rubber bumper thing once.

I have a Ruger Mk. II, and I agree that the only real issue is reassembly after cleaning. Other than that, a fun piece. Had some failures to touch off rounds early on, but it settled down. (The failures were mainly with Thunderbolt rounds, I went to CCI and maybe that helped, too.)

I would not mind having a Buck Mark, but the "Mini Me" 1911 .22 that Browning has out now would be fun, too. Were I interested in getting another .22 pistol. The Mark II is doing the job right now, and is a nice shooter.

I would like a snubbie M34 and .22 uppers for my centerfire pistols, especially my CZ-75 and PT-92.

Takedown is strange, but the Ruger is a fantastic design. That said, the Buckmark is a great pistol, no doubt about it. The nice thing about the Buckmark over the Ruger is the removable barre. Makes it easy to swap barrels if you're into that. Between the two, I've found the Ruger to typically be the most reliable and perhaps a touch more accurate. But I wouldn't turn down a Buckmark.

According to the manual, you remove the barrel as part of the takedown procedure. I learned this when I sent the buffer on mine into orbit a while back (well, I heard it land somewhere in the living room, but could not find it ). Now I'm trying to remember to call Browning during business hours to see about a replacement.

+1 on the Buckmark. These are my 2. The top one is a Hunter Model I just picked up a couple of weeks ago. The bottom one in the photo is a Camper UFX I got a couple of years ago. It came with the grey / black rubber grips. After I bought the Hunter, I liked the Cocobolo grips so much I bought an extra set and switched them out.

The Hunter has a longer barrel and Fiber Optic sights, while the Camper has the standard black metal front sight blade. As the name implies, it's more a camp gun designed to be carried in a holster. The Hunter comes with a top rail that will accept scope rings, or a red dot optic. I haven't gotten around to shooting the Hunter yet, because I'm in the process of having my bathrooms remodeled. As soon as that's finished, it's off to the range for an extended range session! Hopefully next week.

And a new Buckmark UDX Plus makes 3! I couldn't help myself. The other day I went to Cabela's just to look around, and saw this Buckmark Plus UDX sitting in the case. I asked to see it, and that was that. Now the best part. They were on sale for just $429.00 from $479.00. I asked him if they had one in the back. He looked and said that was the last one they had. I checked the gun over very carefully, and there wasn't a mark on it. The breech face was smooth and shiny, and showed no firing pin marks from being snapped. (As most know, this can be an issue with rimfire guns that have been extensively dry fired).

Before I said, "I'll take it.", he told me as I stood there looking at it carefully, that I could have it for just $405.00! And it gets better. Browning currently has a on line rebate program running, that gave me another $25.00 off! So when all is said and done, I ended up getting a brand new Buckmark UDX Plus for just $417.24 out the door! Considering that the UDX Plus is at the high end of the Buckmark line, I think I got an excellent buy.

My bathroom remodeling project should be all finished today, so now I have 2 new Buckmark's to light up for the first time!

Very nice...I came very close to buying that exact pistol until I got a crazy deal on a Ruger. But if the price were the same, I would have bought the Buckmark, mostly because I like the smaller grip on the UDX for the kids. (not that it really matters that much anymore, my little girl really prefers a LW Commander in .45 ACP).
