Browning® Buck Mark® Standard URX Pistol - Black
This One Get's 'em Coming Back for More
Browning Buckmark WOW! This is a sweet shooter! It feeds everything I've put in the mag. Very seldom do I get a failure to feed or eject. And that is usually after everybody, and I mean everybody has run 50 to 60 rounds a piece through it. A drop of oil and a pass with the bore snake and she is off and running again.
This little jewel shoots the cheap stuff and keeps shooting it.
The Buckmark is a stout little "son of an engineering wonder". It has some heft to it. Feels like you are holding some thing much bigger.
Trigger has a nice crisp break to it. Sights are not fancy but work well. The grips are probably one of the nicer features on this fine little weapon. It seems that everyone is comfortable with them. This the pistol that I start young'uns and new shooters on. They get it real quick. They come back for more.
The rough part of owning this shooter is that it does not take down easily for the new comer. You need a set of allen wrenches to do more than running a bore snake and spraying with action cleaner. After the first couple of times it is a snap, but those first few times can be intimidating. Check out some videos on line from your favorite video site to get the low down on the cleaning. It makes it much simpler. The other minor peeve is it comes with one mag. Additional magazines are common, but not cheap. I don't need gazillions of 'em, the Browning is not first choice for a defensive shooter, but hey, two in the box would be decent Browning. (Hope they read these things)
I have several thousands of rounds through mine and it is as tight as the day I brought it home. The Browning is well built. We are talking T-A-N-K well built. It is much cheaper to shoot than some other temporarily mental makes out there. It is accurate. Yep! Real accurate. Great pistol to train and teach with. Kids love to shoot it. Heck fire I love to shoot it. It has a permanent spot in the range bag.
Pick it up, handle it, give it the once over, put it down and go look at other .22 shooters. You to will come back to it. Everybody I know does. It may cost you a few more dollars, but it is gonna be worth it.
Alright let's get some ammo and go shootin'! Catch ya at the range.

This is a good gun for the price. The barrel is nice and heavy and stays on target shot after shot. The grip feels nice in the hand. My wife loves to shoot it as well.

Costing Me a Fortune!!
I bought this for my wife as a first handgun and it is responsible for at LEAST two trips to the range a week.
I highly recommend it for anyone just getting into handgun shooting, but read up and check the YouTube reviews before going to the range. I've had one misfeed in over 1000 rounds to date, and use CCI Mini Mag exclusively.
The only issue I've had comes while cleaning. The spring retainer clip has come off every time in spite of multiple methods of removing the assembly, never seems to be a problem in any of the YouTube videos, possibly it is just me. I ordered 5 extra clips and have lost a total of 3 to date, these things are almost microscopic! I clean it every time we come back from the range, so it's not like I haven't had plenty of practice.
Everything else is top notch, well worth the extra cost compared to many cheaper .22LR handguns. If you are a 1911 shooter, the grip angle is very close, feels similar for balance and weight, would consider as a low cost trainer although not many reviewers praise it as such.
