The Browning Buck Mark series stepped on the scene in the mid-1980s, following the ceased production of the company’s Challenger pistol. New for 2021, this latest Buck Mark Plus Vision UFX Black pistol is rich in features that tailor to the competitive shooter and weekend plinker alike. Distinctive curb appeal and thoughtful engineering combine to provide a capable platform that is fun to shoot and enhanced for modern accessories.

Browning supplies a machined-aluminum receiver as the foundation. A high beavertail at the top of the backstrap works in concert with a high relief at the rear of the trigger’s guard to position the gun lower in the hand. An aluminum barrel sleeve reduces overall weight while providing barrel rigidity for supreme accuracy with target loads—27 ounces in the hand and feature rich, this Buck Mark is built to perform. A barrel sleeve machined from aluminum tensions the 5.9” suppressor-ready barrel; the muzzle is threaded 1/2X28 t.p.i and comes with a per-installed radial compensator.

Putting rounds on target is further aided by Browning’s white-outlined, Pro-Target adjustable-rear sight and fixed, fiber-optic front. Folks who wish to magnify their experience can do so easily by utilizing the supplied Picatinny rail section found just forward of the rear sight on the top strap. Browning supplies an easy-to-load 10-round detachable box magazine.
