The Browning Buck Mark pistol line just got a little bit bigger for 2017 with the addition of eight new models. Boasting a machined aluminum frame; precision-rifled barrel; blowback action; crisp single-action trigger and adjustable sights, the Browning Buck Mark series is a popular choice for target shooters and hunters.

First up among the new Browning Buck Mark pistols is the Buck Mark Field Target Suppressor Ready model. It features a heavy round 5-1/2″ barrel and — as the name suggests — is threaded to accept a suppressor. A thread protector is included. Also featured is an integral optics base, along with an adjustable Pro-Target rear sight and front blade sight. Laminated Cocobolo target grips are included in this package as well. MSRP is $599. A Field Target model which has the same features, but is not suppressor-ready, is also available for a MSRP of $579.99.
Next is the Buck Mark Lite Flute UFX model. Browning built this pistol with a 5-1/2″ steel barrel with a lightweight alloy fluted sleeve in a matte blued finish. Other features include an adjustable Pro-Target rear sight and a TRUGLO/Marble Arms fiber-optic front sight. Ambidextrous Ultragrip FX grips are also included. MSRP is $559.99.
The new Buck Mark Lite UFX model has the same characteristics as the Buck Mark Lite Flute UFX, but this one comes with the Buckmark logo machined into the top of the lightweight alloy fluted barrel sleeve, and it includes a Picatinny rail mounted on the bottom of the barrel for lights or lasers. MSRP for this model is $589.99.
