Broke my Buckmark site today!
Well It didn't really brake. The pin on the front of the rear site popped off whilst shooting today at Angeles. I was hitting the irons good too! What a pisser!

Any other buckmark owners had this happen to them?

I have about 2000 rounds + or - a few.

anything mechanical unless threadlocked,welded or pinned is going to eventually get loose

Sorry to hear about your bad luck
I would suggest putting a little bit of clear nail polish on the threads when reattaching
its a very low strength locker

I think it's actually a small roll pin. But somehow I think your idea will due the trick once I can get the new pin installed. Thanks for the idea. Did I mention, it's my favorite pistol to shoot! lol

The Buckmark is one of my favorites too!
The same thing almost happened to me.
It was worked out halfway before I noticed.
Managed to tap it back in, and now I keep an eye on it.
Did you manage to find all the parts?

I found a browning service center on the web site. took it in this morning and now it's GTG again. I will have to take it to the range to make sure it's still zerod in :p

I was sighting my irons in on the first day I took it out. I thought I dialed in pretty good. Then after a couple of mags, I had to re-adjust my rear sight again. When I finally got home to clean it, I finally noticed the wobble on the rail and the rear screw was halfway out. It's definitely something to keep an eye on on our Buckmarks. Even with the nail polish idea, I'd still check every so often. Might stick longer. But I wouldn't know for how long. I still love my Buckmark though.

Glad to hear you got that Buckmark fixed! Was just looking at mine and thinking I need to take it out again. Love shooting this pistol!
