round the 1985-86 timeframe,
Browning discontinued its
Challenger rimfire pistol line and
introduced the Buck Mark series. That line
has since grown to over 20 models and
covers a wide spectrum from plinking,
small game hunting, to competition pistols.
However, the newest Buck Mark model, the
limited edition Plus Vision, is not only the
most stylish model in the line-but also
offers enhanced competition features.

The Gun
Like the rest of the Buck Mark series, the
Plus Vision ($719.99, Browning.com) is a
blowback-operated, .22 LR pistol built on
a CNC machined 7075-T6 aluminum alloy
receiver. It features a left-side manual thumb
safety and slide release, with a magazine
safety that prevents the gun from firing if
a magazine is not inserted. The Buck Mark
models use 10-round, single-stack magazines.
Differing from the rest of the Buck Mark
line is a lightweight, 5.9-inch suppressorready steel barrel encased in a cut-out alloy
barrel shroud to reduce weight. A two-inch
muzzle brake is installed on the standard
1/2x28 suppressor-threaded barrel. The
resulting appearance is quite stylish and
definitely catches the eye. With the muzzle
brake installed, the overall length is 11.5
inches. Maximum width is 1.25 inches, with
a height of 5.35 inches and an empty weight
of 27 ounces. Grip panels are UFX overmolded black rubber with ambidextrous
thumb cut-outs. The front and rear grip
straps are smooth.
Factory-installed sight options allow for
iron or optical use. Iron sights consist of a
