    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.

    Thanks

    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

    Hi dondavis3
    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

    I don't understand what you saying?

    I bought my front sight at a gun store & installed it myself.

    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.

    I bought one new years ago at a gun show for $209. I did see one this past Thursday at one of our local gun stores where I live. They are wonderful guns for plinking or .22 handgun target shooting. Balance is excellent and the feel is superb, with a great trigger.
