    I wished I'd not bought the one for my son; now I can't get it back! I love shooting his Buckmark, when he brings it along. Inexpensive way to spend the day with your kid.

    I have two of these fine firearms, I used these to teach my grandkids to shoot. One day two of my grandkids will be an owner of these fine firearms.

    I got one for free when I bought my gun safe. It was part of a special offer. It's a great little pistol. It has a couple thousand rounds through it. I use it a lot as the first semi-auto when introducing family members to pistol shooting.

    Highly recommended.

    I bought one and it is now one of my and my son's favorite guns. It goes with us every single time we go to the range.

    I have a 4" Buckmark that does fairly well. It is prone to serious, frequent, and inconsistent malfunctions if not kept perfectly lubed and clean. I've tried four or five different brands of ammo with it, and get frequent failures to feed and/or extract. The most recent problem has been the magazine randomly deciding to drop... two or three times per magazine.

    But I have a friend who has one with a longer barrel that's never malfunctioned and that he never really cleans, so go figure.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Just wanted to chime in also. I have an older model with the flat barrel and it is with out a doubt and great pistol. Never any problems, you do need to clean after maybe 300-400 rounds. .22 is a dirty amno. I would not think twice about getting one. The finish and trigger are also perfect.

    I had a Buckmark for about 18 years. I just sold it recently. It was pretty reliable, except with Federal. It would jam on those constantly. It was also the most accurate pistol I've ever shot.

    Despite what some say, it does have some drawbacks. First thing is, it is quite heavy. Its all metal construction. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I wanted to start my daughter (who was 8 at the time) learning to shoot and that was the only .22 I had. It was a bit heavy for her to hold. The slide (if that is what you want to call it) was also difficult for her to use. So we traded it in on a Walther P22. THe P22 is much less accurate than the Buckmark, but it operates more like a regular semi-auto plus it is lighter and has a better grip for smaller hands. So I felt (and still do) that it is a much better training tool than the Buckmark.

    Oh, there's one more thing. Ever tried finding a holster that fits a Buckmark? Good luck. Not that most people who buy such a gun would buy it with the intention of using it for concealed carry, but there are times when you are out shooting in a field, or hunting, etc.. that you might want to holster it.

    I'd be curious to know where you found one to buy.

    the buckmark, inherently, won't shoot quite as well as the ruger mk pistols, in my experience. Granted, in order to see the difference, you'll have to use a machine rest and remove the human factor.

    in the hand, the buckmark is as awesome as anything.

    The Buckmark, in any of several of its variants, looks to be the best .22 pistol I've never had. I've come close to "pulling the trigger" on purchasing one on several occasions in order to take the shooting pressure off of a Colt Woodsman I regularly shoot. I've used others' Buckmarks and thoroughly enjoyed them and the accurate results achieved with them. There's a world of potential fun and satisfaction in a Buckmark.

    Isn't it amazing how quickly a little stash of .22's can pile up? I've got three now, and would buy a Buck Mark and a Ruger SR22 both in a heartbeat.
