Browning Buckmark avalibility??
I really want a Browning Buckmark.... But my gun dealer hasn't had any luck in finding me one.
QUESTION: Is there a time of year that the Buckmark's are in more supply?
Below are the Browning Buckmark's that I am most interested in.
All have the Ultragrip RX grip and all are the 5.5" barrel,
rate description item # MSRP features
(6) Lite Gray URX 051461490 $519 fiber-optic sight
(5) Lite Green URX 051459490 $519 fiber-optic sight
(3) Practical URX 051448490 $399 fiber-optic sight
(2) Camper URX 051442490 $399 fiber-optic sight, stainless barrel
(4) Standard URX 051409490 $469 stainless slabside
(1) Standard URX 051407490 $429 slabside with polished flats
I have rated the above in the order I would like to have... (1) polished slabside
is in my opinion...the best looking and (2) fiber-optic sight is a definite plus!
(4, 5 & 6) are a little out of my price range.
I really like the design of the buckmarks, and like the URX because I have a larger
hand.... and from reading through all the internet... The buckmarks have a very
smooth easy trigger pull.
I just bought a Buck Mark Camper at Academy for $290. Trigger pull is amazing but the sharp edges of the slide can hurt you (I got a few cuts myself). I sanded mine and re-blued it. Mine is also very tough to rack/cycle due to the way the hammer blocks the slide. I filed/sanded the cocking ramp to round it a bit and it cycles much easier now. Unmodified, I doubt the ammo recoil is enough to cycle it successfully. Maybe as the hammer spring relaxes in time, it will cycle easier.
I love to tinker so those are no biggie for me but some might find them a total turn off.
Just sharing my experience which may not be the norm.
Thanks Poink88 for your reply.
Today (5-1-10) I was lucky to find a Buck Mark "Standard URX" at one of the big "ranch stores" here in town.
The Gun is amazing.... I am very happy with it (trigger, grip, looks Etc) I highly recommend it.
My guns manufacture date is March 17 2010
I love my Buck Mark
I added some optic's to mine
I also add a Hiviz front sight to it ans enjoy shooting with or without the optic's.
You are gonna love your new gun.
Please post some pictures of it when you can .
And give us a "range Report"
Thanks for posting pics of your Buck Mark..... I sure wish mine had the fiber-optic front sight.....I would like to change it but I am sure my front sights screw is "lock-tight" to the barrel.... it also "looks" like it is glued down??
Here is a pic of my Buck Mark Standard URX
My local dealer has a Buckmark Micro, NIB if interested email me for details firstname.lastname@example.org
I had no problem getting one in the UK you would of tought they would be plenty available in the us.
Your right they are very easy to get here.
And very easy to install
@ manta Edit.
I don't understand what you saying?
I bought my front sight at a gun store & installed it myself.
I tought you where talking about the pistols availability my mistake. Now that we are on the subject my rear sight has come lose is there a easy way to tighten it i think its kept in place with a roll pin.
I'm on my second Buck Mark Camper, and both have been the way you describe. It is a little hard to rack the slide. As you note, it has to cock the hammer, which is a bit stiff. But it doesn't interfere with the gun's function. I'd be cautious modifying the gun to make it rack easier. You might interfere with the gun's timing.
