mark mead: One of my favorite things to do is cut up an 8' or 10' 4x4 into foot &1/2
sections and throw them out a few yards and quick draw my Browning Buckmark
rapid fire with spare magazines at the ready. Sending the 4x4s rolling out
at well over a hundred yards, no problem... not much left of them after
22 golf is as fun too... I'm glad I live where the deserts are secluded
enough to do this. The key is not to actually or squarely hit the ball it
can be hard to find them + using the dirt to get the ball in the
gopher/snake holes can be quite challenging.
cronos222: You said the Ruger doesn't take tools , how do you pop the take down pin
release on the back of the grip ?
icoach73: Good review - IMHO I feel your Ruger and Buckmark aren't really an apples
to apples comparison since Ruger does offer a more comparable model with a
bull barrel (I own it and love it), but you're right on about taking them
down - PITA. They do become easier to take down with time as the parts
break in, or if you're good with a dremel and/or 1000-1500 grit sandpaper
and know what to smooth out without damaging the pistol, you can reduce or
eliminate waiting for the pistol to break in
charlie lambous: out of curiosity , i just purchased a browning buckmark contour today ,
what ammo did work well , i have a pardini sp22 and it only likes one
particular ammo after trying many different boxes ,also have a high
standard it eats anything lol, just trying to shorten my process of
elimination , great work on your video also , nice , would be nice to see
you strip the browning in full on here also just to see how its done

David Johnson: I own a Buckmark and a Ruger MkIII. Based on my experience with these two
pistols, I would say that reassembling the Ruger is a LOT more difficult
than reassembling the Browning. Just getting the bolt stop pin on the main
spring assembly through those holes in the MkIII receiver and bolt is a
pain in the ass. After you've done that, it's plain sailing as long as you
know the trick with the hammer strut. I had to make liberal use of my
rubber mallet! I guess it depends a bit on the individual gun, but there
are several YouTube videos discussing the MkIII reassembly nightmare.
CYBERHEAVY: I would look at the Smith & Wessom Model 41 if price is not an option. They
sell for around $1000, but they are a piece of art. I have owned two of
them, and the one I have now I bought used for $500 a few years ago.
Another great 22 pistol which is hard to find, but a very nice gun is a
Colt Match Target.
steve stearns: good video,very informative! I would like to see you add the Smith & Wesson
22's to the comparison.one of the better comparison videos I've seen.look
762x51n8o: Than you sir, I appreciate it. Semper Fi
V6stangman2007: @762x51n8o Yah I just feel like I'm buying copies with browning though.
There kinda like uberti to me, in that I feel like I'm not getting the real
thing. I would rather pay more money and get fn guns over Brownings current
products. Like the browning hi power, baby browning, they made a few 1911
copies. Plus I love ruger so there's no gun browning makes ruger doesn't
make cheaper and better.
gtralien: Great video! I was thinking of getting a Browning Buckmark. I have an
opportunity to get a S&W 22A as well... thanks again, great vid.
wonton00: I'll check out your 22/45 review. I saw a review on the 22/45 from someone
else recently and he said he had to use a hammer to smack the gun the first
762x51n8o: @911reagan No, I have not.
LIFEIowa: great video and good info. about each gun. How do the prices compare? We
are 1st time buyers and we wondering what is a good price for buying the
Buckmark & the Ruger? Jan 2013. Thanx for all help.
762x51n8o: @rickmusgrave Thanks for the comment. See, you're smart -- I give that
advice to people when they ask me which one they should buy. I tell them to
762x51n8o: Thanks for the info. I'll have to try those loads and see how they do.
(when I can find .22 ammo).
MegaJacklinks: Can u get a black trigger for the browning or can u paint the trigger
black? Or r u stuck with the gold one?
RadiosGunsGuitars: The Ruger 22/45 is MUCH lighter in weight than the Buckmark. If that's
something that's important to you, then the Ruger is the obvious choice in
762x51n8o: @gtralien Thanks, I appreciate it. The Buckmark is a sweet pistol. All 3
are. I've never shot the S&W, or the Beretta Neos.
Matthew Raser: can you put a suppressor on the buckmark?
Zach K: which brand? I just got a buck mark and I don't want to buy bulk and get
the wrong brand of ammo
762x51n8o: As for the misfeeding -- I bet it's the ammo. .22 pistols are notorious for
being ammo finicky. The Browning is typically not that way, but yours could
be. Best bet is to buy a box of several different brands/types of ammo, and
see which ones don't jam. A little tough to do with the .22 ammo shortage.
Hiluxtaco: Cool .22LR handgun(s) video.. :-)
flyboy0920: i want to get the buck just to play around with because im getting to the
point where i dont want to shoot my grandfathers high standard that he got
when he out of the navy in 52 so i think im going to pick up a buck
762x51n8o: @TheVert1276 I've never fired a S&W, so I can't account for that. For a
long time I was sour on S&W since they sold out the gun industry in the
90s. Which for a long time I wouldn't buy Rugers for that fact either. I
have since forgiven them, since they have both done so much since then, for
the gun industry. I just haven't gotten around to shooting a S&W, though.
Hopefully in the next month, that will change, though. I have 2 S&Ws on
order, hopefully that will pan out.
762x51n8o: Thanks man, I appreciate it. It was Rem bulk, I don't remember what
specific Rems it was.
762x51n8o: @imjustwonderful They are great pistols. Numrich still carries parts for
them. Fortunately, they are pretty simple in design, so there's not a lot
762x51n8o: @7thCavScout Thanks bro.
Damon Kirry: Good review, very thorough. My only issue is that you make a point of
saying that the browning in more accurate in rapid fire, when your field
test shows otherwise. Also, you could have mentioned that the ruger can be
had with a bull barrel like the browning. I'm a ruger fan and I have a mk2
taget model that is scary accurate. The hi-standard is an interesting one,
I may have to keep my eyes peeled for one of those. All in all, great
MrEricdgreat: RUGER ALL THE WAY
Christopher Toner: Tactical solutions accessories look so sick, but kinda pricey.
tunnyace: Mass is just like New York actually; all the wacko liberals are in the
cities and 25 miles outside are all conservatives, Unfortunately the wacko
city liberals out number us conservatives 3 to 1. We have both a public
safety office list and the attorney generals list that govern firearms. To
be sold in the state, the firearm has to be on both lists. 2 months back
the Ruger MK3s and 22/45s were taken off the AGs list, so Ruger had to
recall and remove them from every gun dealer in the state.
762x51n8o: @runninonempiy I'm just not into bashing a company, based on my experience
of using a box or two of their ammo. ESPECIALLY out of 1 pistol, when .22
pistols are notorious for favoring a particular kind of ammo. Calling
names…really? Must be a Middle Schooler.
Kaka Brar: Can you suggest me something very high quality 22 lr firearm that can be
handed over generations . Money not an issue
xxuncexx: what rhymes with the manufacturer's name of the company that makes bad .22
ammo? i dont wanna get it and waste money. thx
DrGuha: Great review. Answers most of my qs. directly. I wish you could also add
the Beretta Neo.
MegaTandrus: Emily sounds like a tough broad.
banjobum: So much for the 2nd Amendment.
762x51n8o: Awesome. I'd love to get one of those.
762x51n8o: Yes, I say "um" a lot, I'm not a good public speaker. However, you need to
watch how you talk to people. If you don't like how I do videos, simply:
don't watch. There's really no point whatsoever in being a prick about it.
762x51n8o: The Ruger is generally cheaper than the buck mark. But prices have changed
so much in recent months, you'll have to check prices when you shop.
fandizzle: i own the mkIII an mkII an the mkIII has never had a jam or misfire, i have
shot around 10000 rounds out of it too
joe grayson: stop cleaning them run what ya brung drop some decent syn lube go
762x51n8o: Wemington Wolden Wullet 525 Wack
762x51n8o: I said what it is 3 times in the comments. How about you get all the facts
before you open your rooster holster.
fireside007: You ~ Rock ! !
762x51n8o: @xxuncexx That's funny. I love sarcasm
alenworn: Other than the sentimental value or nostaliga reasons, is there any reason
to get an older Hi Standard? I have a Ruger Mark II and its perfect, I dont
see the reason to buy an old Hi Standard, todays pistols are just as good
or better IMO
shannonandsheila1: yea i have one an can handle the recoil as fer smokin camel menthols i can
handle them to have a 22 45 and buckmark never shot the ruger but the
browning is one great gun near 2000 rounds never cleaned it no failures
which would you say is best
762x51n8o: @alenworn I'm a collector of firearms and a student of history. To me, your
question is like, "why would anyone buy an M1 Garand or 1903 Springfield.
Today's ARs are far better." Why would anyone buy a Colt Python? Why would
anyone buy any 1911? They only hold 7-8 rounds, anyway. Or to a car
enthusiast, "why buy a '59 Corvette, when today's corvette's are better." A
person would buy a HS, because it's quality, and valuable. Mine cost $50
new, but is now worth over $400 used.
killersushi99: I have both. Love them both! Grandfather gave me Ruger as I got older I
bought the Browning myself. I REALLY want to get a Ruger 10/22 rifle one
day. I love their stuff.
