I've never seen a Buckmark w/that short of a barrel. But like it. I've come to the conclusion that that design is one of the best for accuracy. Similar design as the S&W .22A and others. Nice gun!

Donnie that is a Slabside Barrel. The same barrel as a bull barrel with the sides milled off. The reason for this is to balance the gun better and lighten it a little. The bull barreled ones are about a hundred dollars cheaper but shoot just as good. I have a few Rugers with the slab side barrels in 6 /78 inches. That is a very nice gun you have there and the Rugers are a little difficult to take down until you learn the tricks and get used to them. My wife also loves to shoot the Rugers in 22LR. I recently just got a Sig 1911 22 and it sort of looks like shes eying that one too. I dont care as long as I can keep her interested in shooting.

You're right about that. So much better and more enjoyable with the wife interested in shooting as well.
Thanks for the info about the barrel.
