About 6 weeks ago, I got a Browning Buckmark. I wanted the longer barrel version, but couldn't find one at a good price. So, I bought the 4" barrel version at Academy for $248. I added a fiber optic sight afterwards.
It shoots very well and I like it a lot...
But, I found someone who just bought the 5.5" version, and they changed to an after market barrel immediately without ever shooting it. He sold me his unused stock barrel for $30. It came in today and I swopped out the barrel and put it all together. Now I have this:
Now that's a keeper for sure. To think a head a little the baby will have a blast with it too. Beleive me you will turn around twice and he will be wanting to go shooting. They grow faster than you think. Good luck.
WOW! You got a GREAT deal!
I don't suppose you want to unload that useless short barrel for cheap... ;) :mrgreen:

How does it shoot?
Well, it shot very well with the short barrel. I also prefer the fiber optic front sight I installed, over the all black sights.
I won't get a chance to shoot it with the long barrel until this weekend. I know I'll have to adjust the elevation on the rear sight because the longer barrel is tapered toward the end. So, the height of the sight has changed.
Nice wheelin' and dealin'! You'll never get tired of shooting that one!
Well, got to hit the range with the Buckmark with the longer barrel installed - 1st time. After I adjusted the elevation of the rear sight a bit, I was good to go. Love the gun.
As much of a Walther fan as I am, I still much prefer this to the P22 :P
Glad ya liked the gun.

Well, I shot a much tighter group today than I did with your 22. But, the big difference that helps is that I put that fiber optic front sight on mine. I am not good with all black sights. Plus, when we were at that range, I was using back sights on a black target. That's tough.
