      Help: Browning Buckmark broken plastic piece

      I just bought a used Browning Buckmark Gold and I took it to the range to test it out and it keeps misfiring. So when I disassembled it, I found a broken piece of plastic piece that fell out, but I have no idea what it is. The rear of the pistol ( inside the slider ) also looks like it has some chipped plastic piece, too. Can anybody help me find out what it is so that I can replace it?

      Check out this parts diagram. My guess is Part #3. Only piece of plastic I can think of, just a little whitish wafer.

      That's the one. It broke in half. I did some poking around the Internet and it's called the buffer piece and it has the reputation of breaking off for all Browning Buckmark pistols.

      Get a few of 'em, and get another firing pin housing. Sooner or later you'll need one of those too....

      And while you are at it get a bunch of recoil spring retainers, that unbelievably tiny c-ring that holds the spring on. I keep losing it and keep getting lucky finding it. I know its only a matter of time before one is gone for good.

      Next time you're in an auto supply store, get that telescoping steel "thing" with the magnet on the end.

      I actually swept the carpet with a magnet from one of my son's toys! That little thing get slightly out of line and BOING it shoots across the room!

      I have a 1986 model Buckmark and somewhere along the way this piece is missing from mine. Will it harm the gun to fire it without it?

      I lost the snap ring on my Camper's recoil spring. I just tightened up the last turn of the spring with a pair of needle nose pliers and replaced the spring. The tightened coil turn acts very well as a snap ring. It's been working that way through about 1200 rounds of Bullseye shooting. It shouldn't be hard to whittle a new buffer out of a piece of plastic if you needed one in a hurry. I don't think I'd like to fire many rounds without the buffer since one of it's main purposes is to keep the guide rod aligned.

      I ordered a new buffer from Browning and got a note a week later that it was back ordered. Made my own out of some scrap plastic and installed it and it worked great. New buffer from Browning arrived the next day. Oh well.
