Love my Buckmark, too! It has always been 100% and is as much of a tackdriver as a handgun can ever be.

Taking the grips off is an adventure, though! The first time I did I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I had to run into the arms of Youtube to get it back together again...

That brings back a memory or two

It looks like simply field stripping it is an adventure in and of itself.

One problem is the difficulty taking it apart -- which is interesting as one reason I got a Buckmark is because the Ruger is so difficult to put back together.
I called Browning about it and they said they had been having a lot of trouble with people stripping screws when reassembling the Buckmark and then having to deal with warrantee issues -- so decided to Loctite everything together so that wouldn't happen!

Ok. But then how do you disassemble it in order to strip as clean it?

Once you get the hang of it the River is very simple to take down and reassemble. I have never needed to field strip other than cleaning which it rarely needs

Default Disassembling the Buckmark

"But then how do you disassemble it in order to strip and clean it?"

You don't.

I use a bore snake through the bore and some q-tips in the chamber as best I can. The folks at Browning seem to think that is all that is necessary.

I think the real deal is that this will work for a while then I will have to either use a hairdryer or something to heat up the Loctite, or take it to a gunsmith for the first disassembly.

Browning told me I could always send it back to them if there are any problems -- but that sounds expensive and time consuming if all that is needed is a good cleaning and lubing.
