Plinking, target, for just walking around in the woods, just something else to play around with. I have 22 pistols already that are on both sides of the fence. Ruger MKII custom done for bullseye comp., S&W 41, High Standard supermatic, also H&R Trophy, Ruger SR22, these are just some of the semi-autos. Just have the itch to buy another 22 pistol. LOL

Ok,..but I'll disagree with the Buckmark Not Outshooting the Ruger, and I'm a Ruger Fanboy. Unless you have a Longer Barreled Ruger Mark II/III or 22/45 Mk II or III, it would be hard for a 4.4" or 5.5" Gun to Out shoot one with a more accurate and Longer Barrel(at 7.25")..I have had the 2 Side by Side....both on Rests,..the Browning Buckmarks' groups were better. Now as for the 1911-22, I love Mine,..but unless I sunk More$$ into it it would not be suitable for any competition except in a "stock" 22 Class pistol Match...
BVAL,..Good Luck on your search, let us know whats Next!
Our next will Prob. be another Long gun in 22LR or 22Mag....

I was very tempted to get the Browning 1911-22 last month but the 4/5 scale discouraged me. Sure wish they had a full size model because the quality was excellent. It sure is a nice gun and doesn't need to be as big as a government model 1911. But that's what I wanted so ended up with the Colt/Walther and recommend anyone buying a 1911-22 to take a look at them.

IMHO Buckmark or Ruger..........it's a wash.
You can get good and not so good in either. The creep on my reg Buckmark is why I sold it.
Fine plinker, left a little bit to be desired on the IHMSA line.

Target model Buckmarks come with adj sear and trigger overtravel (factory).

Buckmarks also could be had in models "optics ready" before Ruger D&T'd theirs.
I like the slab sided Buckmark bbls, but want one on a Target frame (for the adj sear).
That's be my fishin' and trail rig.

Been also looking for a 10" Varmint, pops has a 14".

The little 1911 Brownings are cute, too bad they don't make a Mini GC version. The lack of adj sights just ruins that rig for me.

Eyes going now at age 50, proly need everything scoped.

A lot of stuff factors into why one gun shoots better than another. One biggie proly ergonomic differences between rigs, even if sights and sight radius and trigger pulls close to same.

Unless tested in a scientific method, with reduced variables, it doesn't say which shoots better. It just says one shot better for that person at that time.

Ammo testing, no lot variances (maybe even sort within lot to further reduce variability or find a preference), Ransom rest............it can be tedious and expensive doing a proper test.

Best ammo I tried in my 10.5" AMT Lightning was the short run WW Supermax. One gun, tried a lot of ammo, that was heads and shoulders above the rest for that rig. Wicked good.

And hyper V, so it cracked my mainspring housing and was a real PITA to find (production ceased whil i was burning it up at a good pace). Gun and ammo issues forced that sale. Saved a lot of groundhogs lives.

Good lord, do they want an arm n a leg for that little Browning 1911-22. Guess it is just to new on the market, I'll have to wait awhile to see if the price will come down some. Guess I'll have to live with what I got for the time being.
