Default New Buckmark

Friday night I got my Buckmark Practical URX out of jail and promptly brought it home, striped the sights and mounted a rail and TRS-25 red dot. I laser sighted it in at 15' down my hall and took it out to shoot today. J***s C****t what a shooter right out of the box. I started it out with three mags of 40gr Mini-Mags at 100 yards and it easily could hit a 10" plate. I then switched to 36gr Golden Bullets and had the same results. When the rifle guys were done, I moved down to 25 yards and that's when the real fun started. 3" steel, clays, swinging rubber target thingies, no problem. Also, not one FT anything. Can't wait to get it to the indoor range for sure.

I have the same setup, except stainless version.
This gun with the TRS-25 is a tack driver and eats any ammo I put through it.
I also have a Ruger MKII Target, its a toss up on which I like better.

It feels fine. It does come up high and I have to bring the muzzle up to catch the dot, but that will work itself out once I get used to the red dot being so high.

I have a basic Buckmark from the early 2000's. It's insanely accurate for what it is.

So when I removed the front sight it left a patch of dried adhesive behind. Will that disappear if I keep after it with Hoppes? I don't want to do anything drastic to remove it.

The Buckmark is my favorite .22lr handgun. It's reliable and does everything you need it to. It's also extremely easy to customize with a ton of aftermarket support.

Congrats on a Great gun! I have the same red dot setup and couldn't be happier. A lot of fun with great level of accuracy.

You have to take it out to at least 50 yards and let it stretch it's legs.....

Congrats! Love my little Camper. I installed a TacSol rail and mounted a Burris FF2 on mine. Started with it in the back but ended up moving it as far forward as I could. Found it easier for me to acquire the target faster.

Very happy with first shots at indoor range with one Rem GB bent on the feed ramp. Two handed @ 21' using Rem Golden Bullet, Winchester Super X's and Mini-Mags. Next time I'll have a penny with me to drop that dot a click or two.

Nice! I just got a Practical URX too, and even the factory sights easily shot 2" patterns at 10 yards Waiting on the new rail and reflex for this sweet little machine - looks like there a whole world of upgrades available for these perfect pistols!

I rented one of these at the range and would like to buy one, but I did not like the trigger shape -- to curly , almost a semi-circle, did not feel right on my index finger.

Can you get an aftermarket trigger that has a flatter shape? And not that garish gold color please. Otherwise these are great.

Got a URX Practical coming out of jail soon, as well. $25 less than the Standard, and it came with a fiber optic front sight. I'll take a better sight over a better finish, especially if it saves me cash.

I bought a 5.5 Target model in 1999 for $340. I've shot my smallest groups with this gun - in stock condition except for Tactical Solutions grips. I may put on a Victory trigger just because I've never liked the fake-gold-plated look of the original.

Had fun yesterday. I was hitting a 8" steel plate from 100 yards, 9 or 10 out'a 10 shots every time (off of a bag of course), and drew a crowd. I let some folks take a whack at it and sold at least 1 buckmark in the process. What a blast this gun is. I don't have enough boolits. LOL

This thing will be on my belt on my Oregon backpack deer trip this year, and I'll put squirrel and rabbit on the fire all "naked and afraid" like (without the naked, too cold). But, if I come off the mountain with some back strap, little critters live.
