i have two barrel / upper assembly's for the mark 2, a 4" & a 6" tapered barrel. easy enough to change out, but i never do because i always shoot the buckmark.

Eric,

Do you have any problems with the screw backing out on the Buckmark?-- I believe the front screw of the two that hold on site and pistol together.

hi eric

no, no problems like that (well, no problems of any kind actually). if that is your primary concern i wouldn't be worried - there are many different methods to thread-lock hardware if that problem ever may ever arise. i bought the buckmark in "almost new" condition and i have put at least 3,000 rounds through it without issue. it almost makes me look like a good shot!

they are both great pistols but i see many more used rugers for sale than i do used buckmarks (anecdotal, i know).

Nod, really that is my only concern. Have only seen it in that one link I posted--but I haven't been "researching" buckmarks either. I do really like the Buckmarks handling over the Ruger. The 22-45 Ruger always felt not right either.

You also seem to be forgetting how much you HATE stainless guns

Bought mine (blue version) somewhere in the early 90's, tube mag, NIB for somewhere in the $90 range-- we were visiting my grandfather in a very rural Utah area, and wanted to shoot. The local hardware store suggested the Marlin. Turned out to be a great day at the local dump
Have at least 10K rounds through it. Very accurate for a semi auto out to 50 yrds. Doesn't like cheap dirty ammo, but who does.

Easily the best $100 gun related bucks I've ever spent.

The new one with replaceable grip panels is better than the original 22-45 but still feels a bit thin in the web of my hand. It comes with the "thin" 1911 grips but I tossed a set of cheap rubber ones on mine and it makes me mo happy.

I also think the rear sight sucks. The common cure seems to be a sight blade from a single six (shallow V) but I added fiber sights to mine. Think I'm going to try the shallow V though, the fiber sights are so tall the front snags on stuff.

I have these two exact pistols. Bought the Mark II new about 20 years ago. Bought the Buckmark about a year ago. I almost never shoot the Ruger anymore. Not that it's bad, but I just love the Browning. I put a red dot scope on the Buckmark recently, and off a rest I put 5 shots into one ragged hole at 25 yards. Sucker shoots.

The Buckmark is a bridge between the very utilitarian MK II and the more exotic....

Would love the HS. Had a friend that had one. It completed me.

revamp

this thread has fallen asleep.......

Question:
I love this Henry lever action. With subsonic ammo it shoots spot on at 50 yards.
Would like to get the Henry pump action.
Anybody have one ???????

Last time I was out at the range and gave her a go with the Mk III again.

I put my Can-shaped spinner targets out at 50 yards thinking we'd never hit 'em.

The can targets are about 3" by 5"... Offhand, I swear she hit one 4 or 5 out of 10 ten times on one mag. Best I did was maybe 3 out of 10. Both her and that little pistol can shoot!

I was shocked at how accurate my uncle's MkII was at range. We were using high velocity rounds and hitting a 12" by 40" steel post at 125yd without raising the sights much. (I only hit it twice in 10 rnds standing offhand, but a buddy dinged it 4 times.) Cheap fun!

New Ruger Mark 3!

Put a Red Dot on it and can't believe how accurate it is. Did the LCI filler and Clark bushing. Now its a Mark 2 with the mag release in the right place. It swallows all ammo without any hang ups unlike my 10 22 which seems to be ammo sensitive.

When takilya cabesa goes with me to the range, we'll shoot a few hundred rounds with whatever combination of guns we take. Then put up some fresh targets, throw 20 rounds at them and score them to see who buys lunch. If we both use the Mk III, I'll usually beat her by just a little bit and she buys.

This weekend, I shot the new Springfield and she stuck to the Ruger.

I bought lunch

Yeah I don't want to play that game as I think I'd be buying more lunches than I want to admit...

Besides funding, this has been a big reason that I haven't really been looking for a centerfire pistol. I kinda like doing tricky target shooting for fun instead of just blasting a man-shaped piece of cardboard 10 yards away. The 22/45 is cheap to shoot, reliable, and holy shit if it isn't accurate. I think getting anything short of a 6" GP100 is just going to disappoint me, accuracy wise.
