Show Us More Buck Marks, Browning!
Browning has always asked Browning brand loyalists to show off their Buckmarks, and now the company is showing us much more of theirs—Buck Mark pistols, that is. For 2017, Browning has added eight new models of its popular pistol, which are all made in the USA on a machined aluminum frame and feature a precision-rifled barrel, blow-back action, crisp single-action trigger and adjustable sights.
Here’s the rundown of new models:
The Buck Mark Field Target Suppressor Ready, which features a heavy round 5 1/2” barrel and is threaded to accept a suppressor. It comes with a thread protector, laminated Cocobolo target grips, and an integral optics base and an adjustable Pro-Target rear sight and front blade sight. MSRP: $599.99. An identical non-suppressor-ready Buck Mark Field Target model is also available for an MSRP of $579.99.
The new Buck Mark Lite Flute UFX model features a 5 1/2” steel barrel with lightweight alloy fluted sleeve in matte blued finish. Other features include an adjustable Pro-Target rear sight and a TRUGLO/Marble Arms fiber-optic front sight. Grips are ambidextrous Ultragrip FX. MSRP: $559.99.
The Buck Mark Lite UFX model features a 5 1/2” steel barrel with the Buckmark logo machined into the top of the lightweight alloy fluted barrel sleeve. It has the same features as the Buck Mark Lite Flute UFX model with the addition of a Picatinny rail mounted on the bottom of the barrel. MSRP: $589.99.
Browning has added four new models to the Buck Mark Plus line. The models are the UDX, Stainless UDX, Rosewood UDX and Practical URX. The three UDX models all have a 5-1/2” barrel. Stainless on the stainless model and matte blued on the other two. The Practical UDX has a tapered 5 1/2” bull barrel. All four pistols have a new Picatinny rail for optics with an integrated Pro-Target white outline adjustable rear sight. A TRUGLO/Marble Arms fiber-optic front sight is also featured. Grips on the UDX models are brown laminated wood, rosewood on the Rosewood model, black laminated wood on the Stainless model and the Practical model includes ambidextrous URX grips. Suggested retail is $549.99 for the UDX and Rosewood models, $599.99 for the Stainless model and $479.99 for the Practical model.
