I’ve had my Browning Buck Mark Camper for a few years. It was my first pistol, and I adore it. As you may have read a few weeks ago, I’ve been researching Red Dots to add to it in order to join the Pistol League at my club. After much research, I ordered a Buck Mark Reflex Sight.
I received the sight quickly but soon discovered I had made a rookie mistake; I would need a Weaver rail to attach it with. The rail came in the mail yesterday, so I got to work on it in the afternoon.
The installation went surprisingly easy. All I needed to do was remove the existing sight rail with the Allen key, install the Weaver rail, then install the optic.
I’ll play around with rail placement when I can get it to the range to sight it in. Unfortunately, it’s pouring so it won’t be today.
I’m excited to give it a try, it looks good and I think I’ll be happy with it. Now to practice so I can compete with the boys at the club!
Good luck in the matches!
How did you decide on the Buck Mark reflex sight? Did you consider any others? How does the installation of the red dot sight affect the weight, balance and feel of the pistol?
I didn’t want to spend a boatload of money and it kept showing up in my research that others with the same model as my Camper were happy with it. I haven’t shot it yet with the sight on, but dry the balance feels fine.
