I sold my IVJ TP-22 at auction last month and had been looking at Ruger 22's for plinking. I stopped in the LGS to make a lay-a-way payment and saw this on the shelf.



I used the think the fiber optic sight was a bit silly, as I get older I really appreciate it. Way better than the 1/8 inch nub on the IVJ. I put roughly 75 through it yesterday afternoon, it is unbelievably accurate. I can live with that fact that I have to use allen wrenches to strip it, I really like this one.

I'm probably on the LGS Christmas card list with one buy and one lay-a-way in less than a month.

Nice little Buckmark, they're great. I have HiVis sights on my Marlin 60, easy on the eyes indeed.

Fine looking pistol and if the grips fit the hand as good as they look like they do, Nice.
I know for my eye sight, the HiVis sights are a good thing!I have them on two Rugers and my Marlin and what a good sight picture, easy to see, they make.

Wise choice.......I love my Buckmark (99 model slab-side)an its been a good one. I wish mine had fiber-optics but I'm so used to it. These are really great little shooters. I know you'll have many years of enjoyment together.......Good shooting.......Redworm..............

This one is becoming my new favorite. I'm not one of those guys that can knock a hair off a gnat's butt from 50 feet, but I can hold my own. This morning after church I was shooting at 100 yards with it. With inexpensive Golden Bullets I was able to maintain 90% plus on a 2' x 2' target (standing leaning against a post) from 100 yards. For me, that's great. I really like this little gun.

I never had a single problem with my Buckmark. Congratulations. And regarding the F.O. front sight, I'm mid-50's now and looking for any way I can to see my sights better! Have fun.
