??

So you want a short barrel, but you don't like the look of the short barrel??? They do have thread protectors, so they won't look exactly like the website shows, with the threads visible. If it's just the matte finish you don't like, Tactical Solutions can probably make you one without that. Talk to...

Topic: Buckmark or P22?
Replies: 15
Views: 1851

Having just bought a Buckmark (and I've shot my buddy's P22 a bit) I would say go with the Buckmark. It's more accurate, better built, and more reliable by far. It's also cheaper; I got the Buckmark for $279 at Sportsman's Warehouse, the P22 was significantly more, although I don't remember the pric...

nice

Nice job on the digital camo! Did you buy templates or make them yourself?

What struck me is that while your camo job doesn't hide the gun itself (of course) it does an excellent job of disguising the suppressor. I didn't realize you had a can on the gun until I looked closer.

Semi-auto 22LR action mods for subsonics?

I just picked up a Marlin 7000 that needs some work for cycling subsonic ammo. I know there are a lot of tricks out there for 10/22's that I may be able to apply to my Marlin. Can you guys suggest any? Besides my list below, am I missing anything to try? I haven't tried any of the following yet, but...

I just picked up one of these Marlin 7000's as well. I haven't decided whether to have the barrel shortened to 16" when I get it threaded; it's 18" right now so not much difference really. Mine won't cycle the subsonic PMC Moderator or Aquila SE ammo, but does fine with Federal bulk hi-vel from Wal-...

I'm finding the same with the Buckmark I just bought. Took the barrel off and put it back on again, no need to change the sights.

Besides, sorry 40G27, that Neos looks like a Power Rangers toy; I don't think I could stand to own one. :lol: Way more expensive than a Buckmark too.

Thanks, thats what I was thinking.

Of course it will be on the trust after it is approved, but before I actually own it, do I n...

I've been talking to a local SOT dealer who has the Outback II in stock for $325. I've asked him about a Warlock, but he has to check on the price first. I haven't heard any of these three cans; but want my first purchase to be the right one. Is the Warlock or Pilot worth waiting and paying an extra...

I bought one today, stainless with the Ultragrip or something like that. The only thing i don't like about it is the safety; it's really stiff, and in the way of my right thumb. I'm thinking about trimming it down some, any suggestions?

Buckmark opinions?

So what are your opinions on the Buckmark line of pistols, as a suppressor host and as a plinking/target gun? I already have an old Ruger Mk I with the 6 7/8" target barrel, which is a total tackdriver. From a rest I can hit clay targets on the berm at 100 yards 4 out of 5 shots, and it feeds absolu...

So where can one find these little Firestorm's?

I have an old Iver Johnson TP22 which is very similar, but it's a die cast piece of poo. I like the shape and style, but haven't wanted to spend the $$$ for a real walther; this Bersa looks like a good alternative.

An integral semi-auto pretty much needs to have a fixed barrel to keep size and complexity down; not many modern major caliber pistols are built that way.

The Desert Eagle and Automag pistols do have fixed barrels but are pretty large.

The MechTech carbine conversion unit is worth a look. Very accurate, and mine has been totally reliable. The downside is they look "different" and you have to have a Glock or 1911 to mount it to. (Your Glock or 1911 doesn't have to be a 45, as long as it can take .45 mags.) Someone on the board post...

Just a question, why are your seating depths not the same for all 7 rounds? You have a variation of .010" in OAL, this will affect both velocity and accuracy. If you are trying to achieve consistent velocity, seating depth should be consistent.

I'm interested to see how it works out for you.
