Every time I close my eyes...

Well, maybe not that. But, every time I manage to start setting asides a little nest egg, some "non-earmarked" cash, a deal comes along that I can't refuse.

I would have been *dumb* not to buy this gun at the offered $200.

And I shot a quick 2" at 15 yards (20 rounds) with it, too.

I ain't just happy, I'm pleased as punch :)

I like it, looks like a nice little shooter. I want one too, but I'll be darned if I see any new guns soon. So I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously through your posts.

Picked up this one's twin sister (although without the box) for about $10 less than yours. Prefer it to my earlier-purchase Ruger MkII bull barrel due to sheer shootability, which I can't really explain but which results in tiny little groups compared to my ability with the Ruger. Fun fun fun. And cheap to shoot.

I have owned several Ruger .22 pistols in my time, liking how they shoot, but hated cleaning them. Then I picked up a Browning Buckmark and fell in love all over again with the .22 target pistol. It is easy to break down, not the jig-saw puzzle the Ruger is, and shoots damn staight.

I have been considering a .22 target pistol for a while now, but I had thought the Browning pistols cannot be disassembled without tools, and it's also necessary to remove and replace the rear sight as part of disassembly for cleaning. This would mean that the gun cannot be simultaneously clean and zeroed.

And yes, I used to own a Ruger bull-barrel Mark II. Loved the accuracy, could live with the trigger, hated taking it apart and putting it back together to clean it.

I'm told some people just wet the inaccessable areas down with solvent and a glass eyedropper and then use one of those cans of air they sell in computer stores to blow the worst of the crud out, in order to avoid having to disassemble and reassemble them.

Who makes a good .22 pistol that isn't onerously difficult to take apart and put together for routine cleaning?

I too bought a BuckMark after getting tired of the Ruger breakdown reassembly puzzle guns. $200 is a great deal on the BuckMark. It's what I paid :)z
