Bought a slightly used Buck Mark PLUS UDX. Like new, in box with owners manual, and came with 2 mag's.
Picked her up from jail this morning and stopped by the range for some plinking this afternoon. I really needed to make sure that it functions correctly. Spent a couple minutes cleaning and then proceded to put 100 rounds (Winchester Wildcat's) down range.
The pistol is used, but in excelent condition, feels great in hand, well balanced, accurate, and smooth!!! It fed, fired, and ejected every round without an issue.
The first 2 mags were shot at targets at about 7 ~ 10 yds. Then moved out to targets at 15+yds and it was awnnn!!! She eats .22lr like it's candy!!

Congrats! Buck marks are fine pistols!

Wildcat is some dirt ammo so its great that it functions with it!

I had some lying around and figured if it would shoot that, it should shoot just about anything.

Thanks!!


OK. I got out of work a little early and took the BuckMark to the range today (2nd trip). Brought a box of Federal 550 bulk and figured I'd shoot 100 ~ 150 rounds, getting the sites adjusted, and just shooting some. Well, after I noticed that I was having to dig into the box to load mag's, I figured I'd just finish the box. Could not believe that I went through 550 rounds in a single range trip. And, for less than $20 in ammo!!!!!!!!

Shooting @ 15yds. After getting the sites dialed in, I was grouping everything in the 10 ring (100 rounds per target). On my 4th target, I had a sweeeet 2 1/2" ragged hole in the center of the 10 ring!!!!! By the 5th target, I was experiencing some eye fatigue. Still good grouping, but no ragged hole, and had a few in the 9 ring.

This pistol is exactly what I was looking for. Feels soooo good in hand, very accurate, and a damn good looking piece too. ;)

Easily, my best range day in a looooong time!! Thanks to all who have helped me decide on purchasing a BuckMark!!
