1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    This model has been discontinued for a few years now.

    These have a good target barrel, target sights, rail for optics, lighter trigger spring and a trigger overtravel adjustment screw.

    I have the Field version, which has a different front sight (Patridge vs post). Quite accurate. A real joy to take afield for hunting.

    For those wondering what the rail looks like, here's mine. Again, mine has a different front sight.

    Boy, that thing looks a LOT like an S&W Model 22, especially the rail.

    There are differences, however, so they aren't really the same gun.

    I had a S&W 22, you couldn't set the rear sight high enough to even get within 1 1/2" of the target vertically.

    I have the Buckmark in the field model and can't believe how accurate that thing is even at 50 yards. With a red dot sight of course.

    With the rear sight on mine set where you see it, I am able to center shots on a 25-yard NRA target and I use a six o'clock hold. Perhaps the CCI MiniMags I use shoot higher than what you tried? Or maybe mine has a different rear sight?

    Would you consider trading your Browning and cash for an original Wyndeham Maine Bushmaster AR with Mildot scope and case and 2 30rd mags?? has the faster twist barrel for heavy bullets...has only been shot enough to sight in..puts them through the same hole using 62gr loads

    I believe its 6yrs old one of the last true Bushmasters before Cerberus/Freedom group/Remington purchased the company ..this gun has the Wylde target chamber that is perfect for 223 or 5.56mm.. I would do $500? and the Buckmark..let me know..also be sure its ok to own and transfer into your state
