    I've had two Buckmarks over the years. Both have given good service. The current one is an older model, blued, with the flat-sided barrel. It has approx 20,000 rnds through it and still going. Replaced the extractor @ about 15,000 rnds due to faliure to extract issue, other than that, no problems. It will shoot one-hole groups @ 50yds if I do my part.

    The other one I had was a stainless model with integral scope mount. Great shooter, just was too cumbersome for what I use a 22 pistol for.

    The Browning Buckmark is the finest .22 pistol you can get in my opinion. They are buttery smooth, the sweetest trigger in the world, and easy to disassemble and clean. They rule.

    I have one very similar to that only mine has the black finish. I love it! It is a great shooter now. Unfortunately mine needed two trips back to browning to get it that way. At first it had a burr in the rifling that caused lead fouling so bad that the bullets would "keyhole" after about 75-100 rounds. After clearing that up it is a great pistol.

    I have the same pistol you are looking at..just buy it and save yourself the trouble of decision making.. You can not go wrong with a Buckmark.

    Yup to the above positive comments. My Buckmark Camper is extremely accurate with an excellent trigger and has had no feeding issues whatsoever. So far, I've only put a little over 1000 CCI Mini-Mags through it. I just bought it a couple of months ago.

    I bought mine in 1986 and has never left my side. it goes to the range with me every time and it gets used by every one. kids,moms,dads,uncles,grandmas... it does not matter if someone is not shooting I offer it up because that is what the range is all about.
    I have never seen anyone shoot it with out the biggers s**t eating grin.. great gun

    I bought one several years back and loved it so much I bought yet another just this year. The new one just has the threaded tactical barrel as I may someday put a can on it. Great guns as all have said. Can't go wrong.
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    Great gun, fun to shoot. Have not had any problems with mine. Ammo also very reasonable.

    If there are any gun shows soon near you I would check there first..saves on shipping and transfer fee..or if any local shop can order it for you.

    I purchased a browning buckmark 22 for my wife last year. She practiced at the range with great success and when she took her concealed carry course she outshot most of the men with her new ruger sp101. The buckmark is a great target pistol and so far, a real tact driver.
