Default New Buckmark To The Range

Took my new Buckmark to the range today. Right out of the box, its accurate and consistant. A joy to shoot. It loved the Blazer, liked the Winchester (3 fte out of 100) and really did not like the Federal. I have a new range toy.

Mine eats Blazer all day long. And of course anything CCI. I don't even bother with anything but Blazer for cheap bulk ammo anymore, not worth the headache.

I just put 150 though mine this morning Iím up to 650 rounds fired and last cleaned it after 300. So thatís 350 rounds of cheap bulk ammo Winchester and the last 250 Federal, had a few FTF or FTE in the first couple hundred but nothing since. Even as dirty as it is right now, no failures and very accurate even with the cheap ammo.

From today at 10 yards.

Is that rested or? I need to try mine next trip on some 3" shootnsee's for accuracy. Still not pleased with the stock trigger pull weight and lack of smoothness. Want to have Nathan @ Bay Area Gunsmithing work it over but he's so busy he won't be able to take it in for a few weeks.

Not rested standing two hand grip, I got no complaints about the trigger on mine. It’s even better then my 24 year old Mark II smoother and a few once’s lighter with very little take up.

My two Buckmark triggers weight both at 2.5#, I did the trigger mod. myself (not the Hegis sears spring swap), it is not difficult, if you can do the 1911 trigger mod then you sure can do the trigger mod. on Buckmark.

That seems pretty high for a BM, mine comes in at 3 lb 12 oz average on five pulls with my Lyman. Stock trigger no mods with 650 rounds fired.

No link, I just did it by myself, give me sometime so I disassemble my BM and take pictures of what I did.

I will edit this post and post the pictures later.
