View Full Version : Browning Buckmark magazines

September 17, 2005, 04:11 PM
I just picked up a NIB Browning Buckmark 5.5 Pro Target from a GunsAmerica deal. Shame on me for not asking the seller to be certain, but it came with just one magazine. Do Buckmarks, like most semi-autos, ship with two mags? Thanks for any help.

No, Buckmarks only ship with one magazine. At lease that was the case when I bought one earlier this week and it was new in the box when I got it.

I did notice that CDNN has mags for Buckmarks, if that's any help.

Only got one with mine but that was a long time ago. I paid between $20 and $24 each for extra mags........

Check your local gun shows. I bought 4 from the Houston Gun Show at the Astrohall a couple of years ago for $15.00 each. These were Browning mags in the shrink wrap packages.
My Buck Mark Target just empties them before I can reload them.

Thanks everyone, now I feel better! I've purchased a few guns from this seller and always found him to be very honest. I'll probably add one or two mags to my next CDNN order unless I run across a gun show bargain. Safe shooting!

Same experience here--one mag only.

$20.75 each and about $5 shipping.
I bought my Buck Mark there also. Trustworthy vendor.

Mine had only one mag when purchased new. I bought the second mag still in shrink wrap. Some of the mags tilt the first round a little high. The cartridge hits the top edge of the chamber scoring the slug as it feeds. This produces some very annoying first round flyers.
That one was hard to diagnose! The condition of the flyer varies with the type of ammo, the security of the bullet seating process, the OAL, the shape of the bullet nose, etc.

My Buckmark came NIB with 1 mag... bought another on EBAY for $11 plus $3 shipping.
