Absolutely love, Love, LOVE my Browning BuckMark!!! It's a stainless Camper without any modifications yet, but it's great!! It's got a close enough feel to my full size XDM that it doesn't feel like a toy gun.

Just need to put a fiber optic front sight on it so I can see in my local range's relatively dark lanes.

I've had little trouble running a Buckmark in Steel Challenge. Feeds and functions fine and I never take the barrel off the gun. Qtip clean the feed ramp, bore snake the bore, and a little oil on the rails and it's ready to run. One drawback is it doesn't feed plain lead bullets really well. Fed 550 bulk from WW run like a champ. Heggis flip on the sear spring and you've got a 2 lb trigger for competition.

I have the Ruger 22/45... SWMBO has the buckmark... She is scary accurate with her buckmark on the first time out. She didn't let me play with it yet, so I don't know if it's more accurate than my 22/45

I've had both the BuckMark and the 22/45 and you can't go wrong with either one.

Love my Ruger MKII SS Bull Barrel 5.5 I picked up last year for 200 bucks out the door. It was used but the gun looked like it was shot and put away in the safe the rest of the time. Check your local pawn shops and the used section in gun shops too for deals. You can't go wrong with either the Ruger or the Browning .

I found one at a local shop here in N. California. Felt very close to a 9mm M&P, just not has heavy. Like that is as close to a full sized semi-auto pistol. I'm waiting for California to "approve" the gun, I'm thinking of getting one. I was originally in the market for an ATI/GSG 1911 .22 pistol.

My buddy has one of those. Got it about 6 months ago and bought a thread adapter to use his suppressor on it along with 6 magazines and crimson trace grips that cost as much as the gun itself. He shoots the $H!T out of it every weekend we are down in the country, he had to mod the spring damper a bit so it would continue working with all the abuse he puts it through. A .22 suppressor makes a gun horribly dirty, he even got a .17HMR brush stuck in the barrel at one point it was so dirty. He has probably put 8k rounds through it in the half of a year he has owned it. Very good gun, but may need to buy a polymer washer at your local hardware store to make it more reliable. I am looking for something a little different though.

yeah, .22s are fun. I have a MkII 22/45 and a single six (uh... plus the rifles: 2 10/22s, a 77/22, and a marlin 915y for the kids).

Why are you so concerned with making your 22/45 so light? it's easier to be accurate with a gun that has a little bit of mass to it.

You might consider the new(ish) threaded barrel 22/45. That'll keep your cost fairly low and enable you to get the silencer for it sooner.

IMHO, I have a Ruger MkIII and I think the Talo is a great choice. They do some nice add on's to Ruger, not sure about brownings and they do a great job on S&W.
Rugers shoot anything and everything... go4it.. get yourself a red dot scope and have
some fun.. (obviously for a red dot scope you need a mounting platform installed.)

I got the Ruger Mark III 22/45 for my wife, I LOVE shooting it but I wish it had the full size grip of the regular Mark III.

I also got the Ruger 10/22 Target Tactical which I also love.
