New Buck Mark Barrel!!!
Can't wait... Faster, UPS, faster!
The one I oredered is 10", matte Black, with silver flutes... This picture is shiny black w/ black flutes. (I'll post mine as soon as it's assembled)
Now... C-More sight... or Burris Fast Fire????
Anyone wanna compare pistol groups at 50yds???
Okay, Jeff, I'll bite. To what tactical problem is the barrel a solution? :mrgreen:
Seriously, it should be a fun gun. I'd get the C-More.
Run and buy an FN PS90 by the 31st and get a free C-MOre sight :)
I like my buckmark - but my hands are not steady enough for me to buy one of those aftermarket barrels.
I did get lucky to buy a new (unused), factory 5 1/2" barrel for $100. When I bought my Camper, I could only get the 4" version, but wanted the 5 1/2" version.
I managed to sell my 4" barrel for the same price - so it worked out well.
Tactical solution??? I can poke yer eye out from 2.75 inches farther away? I'll have to buy a longer range case...? I'd like to get an extra 13.575 ft per sec out of a 22LR??? I'm 6'4" and 240lbs... Everything I have is LONGER...

I WANNA SHOOT OFF GNATS-NUTS AT 50 YARDS!!!!
Seriously. I want to shoot rimfire steel matches and "Olymipic" matches recreationally. There's no restrictions I've found on barrel-length, and the competition is from a low-ready, not from the leather. The longer TS barrel is lighter, even with 3 inches more reach, and significantly more accurate than the factory Browning barrel.
Second... I think it looks cool, and with no front sight on mine, super clean.
Third... I want to modify the heck out of everything I own, and don't want to f___ with my XDs. They are approaching perfect as-is for their jobs.
I'm down to C-More (4 MOA, adjustable intensity), Burris Fast Fire (4 MOA auto-intensity), or one other.... forgetting the brand right now. All about $200.
Why do most of the pros use the C-More? Sponsorship, or quality? If so, standard adjustment, or "click"? High-mount, or standard rail mount? 8 MOA or 4 MOA, smaller, why?
I'm going with the Tachtical Solutions 5" weaver rail specific for this gun and barrel.
Well if you can't shoot that Gnats nuts off all you got to do is swing the barrel back and forth and knock them off. Don't think I ever seen one that long before. Good luck Jeff and keep us in the loop with that project.
