Browning® Buck Mark® Standard URX Pistol - Stainless Steel
I was looking for the cheapest way to improve my shooting and teach the family how to shoot, which lead me to a .22 cal. After lots of internet and dealer research I was down to the Ruger Mark II/III and the Buckmark. The Buckmark is easier to clean, longer barrels easier to buy (the Ruger barrels carry the s/n), and it felt better in my hand. While researching, I found a lot of used Rugers, but not many Buckmarks - I interpret that to mean people really like the gun and keep it.
I purchased the Camper Standard, with standard rubber grips (all that was in stock) thinking I would buy the URX grips. No need to for me - the std grips provide a comfortable secure feel in the hand. This gun is wonderful to shoot - well balanced and weighted so it doesn't hop around a lot, way more accurate than I am, excellent action - hasn't misloaded or misfired yet after 1,000 rounds.

Great for targetting
Very accurate, nice balance, but needed a new sight for dimmer (range) conditions. I like the stainless steel, but my wife likes her black bull barrel. No measurable difference in accuracy, she is a much better aim with either. This is a great gun for teaching a female to shoot (or anyone that would flinch with kick-back). I believe in teaching accuracy, stance, & getting lots of practise; then add more advanced skills for CCW after good habits are established.

Great product for good price
I've had the buck mark for about 3 months now and have put about a thousand rounds through it. This pistol is great on accuracy as well as dependability. Great gun for any learning shooter. The only disadvantage to the gun that I have found is disassembly. It is not very fast to tear down and clean and you must have a few tools handy to do so. Other than that this is one of my favorites that I've shot. If you want a good accurrate gun that you can shoot all day and do not have to worry about jams with this browning Is definitely the one for you.

Top Notch Tack Driver
Recent purchase with several hundred rounds through it - functions without a hitch and is consistently accurate. Also looked at "Camper" model - liked the balance for Standard better. Be sure you look at the ultra grip version - far superior to regular grip - fits the hand well and helps maintain a consistent hold. Trigger feel is what you read in other reviews - smooth and easy. Was also looking at the Ruger Mark 3 Hunter - saw the Standard as a better value for the $$.
