Browning’s slick-working, well-made Buck Mark .22RF autoloading pistol now comes in a rifle version by means of an 18-inch barrel and the addition of a buttstock and forend. Though styling of the butt section might be termed modern or even radical by traditionalists, it is accomplished in a way that is clean and pleasing, with the additional benefit of preserving the full grip of the Buck Mark pistol. Another positive feature is the integral scope-mounting rib, which offers a variety of scope positions with Weaver-type rings. Fun to shoot and surprisingly accurate are how two of our panelists described the Buck Mark rifle. Accuracy for five-shot groups at 50 yards ranged from .823 inches to 1.647 inches, with the flawlessly functioning Buck Mark exhibiting a fondness for Winchester T22 ammo.
