THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING A BROWNING BUCK MARK 22
Whichever model Buck Mark pistol you purchased it is certainly a gun you can be proud to own. The Buck Mark 22 is another in a long line of dependable, high quality Browning rimfire pistols. Each Buck Mark 22 caliber, autoloading pistol uses a dependable blow-back action design with a removable magazine. John M. Browning invented his first autoloading pistol in 1894. The Buck Mark 22 has features that reflect the significant improvements and original ideas he contributed during more than 25 years of designing pistols. Since then, the Browning Company has produced a variety of models designed for the sportsman and competitive target shooter. In every sense, the Buck Mark 22 is a true Browning. It gives you the kind of shooting enjoyment you've come to expect from the world's most respected gun company. With a reasonable amount of care, your Buck Mark 22 pistol should give you many years of dependable, enjoyable service. Please feel free to write us immediately if you have any observations regarding its performance and operation.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR FIREARMS SAFETY
As a gun owner, you accept a set of demanding responsibilities. How seriously you take these responsibilities can be the difference between life and death.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR CARELESS OR ABUSIVE HANDLING OF ANY FIREARM. AT ALL TIMES HANDLE YOUR BUCK MARK 22 AND ANY OTHER FIREARM WITH INTENSE RESPECT FOR ITS POWER AND POTENTIAL DANGER.PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE CAUTIONS AND PROPER HANDLING PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THIS BOOKLET BEFORE USING YOUR NEW FIREARM.
1 ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE OF YOUR BUCK MARK 22 POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. Never point any firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot. Be extremely alert and aware of all persons and property within the range of your ammunition. 2 NEVER RELY TOTALLY ON YOUR FIREARMS MECHANICAL SAFETY DEVICE. The word safety describes a guns blocking or disengaging mechanism for the trigger, sear, hammer and/or firing pin. Although mechanical devices place your Buck Mark 22 pistol in a SAFER status, no guarantee can be made that the gun will not fire even if the safety is on the on safe position.
LIKE ANY MECHANICAL DEVICE, A SAFETY CAN SOMETIMES FAIL; IT CAN BE JARRED OR INADVERTENTLY MANIPULATED INTO AN UNSAFE CONDITION. Mechanical safeties merely aid safe gun handling and are no excuse for pointing your guns muzzle in an unsafe direction. While it is a good idea to test your guns mechanical safeties periodically for proper function, NEVER TEST IT WHILE YOUR GUN IS LOADED OR POINTED IN AN UNSAFE DIRECTION.
Safe gun handling does not stop with your guns mechanical safety devices it starts there. Always treat this pistol with the respect due a loaded, ready-to-fire firearm. 3 DO NOT CARRY YOUR BUCK MARK WITH A ROUND IN THE CHAMBER. For good safety practice, it is recommended that a round not be chambered until immediately before your pistol is to be fired.

Page 3

4 WHENEVER YOU HANDLE YOUR BUCK MARK 22, OR HAND IT TO SOMEONE, MAKE SURE IT IS COMPLETELY UNLOADED. To fully unload your Buck Mark, you must first remove the magazine, open and lock the slide rearward, and visually inspect the chamber to be certain it does not contain a cartridge. It is vital that you remove the magazine from your pistol so a cartridge is not automatically chambered when you close the action. Always keep the chamber empty and safety in the on safe position unless shooting is imminent (see page 12 for unloading procedures). 5 DO NOT TRANSPORT YOUR BUCK MARK 22 LOADED. Keep it unloaded, whether stored in a holster, gun case or other container. 6 HUNTING FROM ELEVATED SURFACES SUCH AS TREE STANDS IS DANGEREOUS, and may increase the risk of handling a firearm. The following rules should always be observed by you and those you hunt with: Always make certain that the stand being used is safe and stable. Always make certain that your firearm is unloaded when it is being taken up and down from the stand. Always make certain that your firearm is not dropped from the stand, or dropped while it is being taken up or down from the stand. Remember, a loaded firearm may discharge when dropped, even with the safety in the safe position. 7 BEWARE OF BARREL OBSTRUCTIONS. When preparing to shoot your pistol, check for a barrel obstruction as follows: first, fully unload the pistol by removing the magazine, locking the action open and inspecting the chamber.

BE CERTAIN NO LIVE ROUND IS IN THE CHAMBER. Then glance down the barrel to be sure it is clear of any obstruction. It takes only one small obstruction to dangerously increase pressures. Before the first firing, clean the bore with a cleaning rod and patch, and wipe away any anti-rust compounds in the chamber and around the action. BE ALERT TO THE SIGNS OF AMMUNITION MALFUNCTION. If you detect an off sound or light recoil when a cartridge is fired, do not load another cartridge into the chamber. Fully unload by removing the

Page 4

magazine and removing the cartridge from the chamber. With the action open, glance down the barrel to make sure that an obstruction does not remain in the barrel. If there is an obstruction, completely clear the barrel before loading and firing again. Failure to follow these instructions can cause extensive damage to your gun and possible serious injury to yourself and others. 8 BE CERTAIN YOUR PISTOL IS UNLOADED BEFORE CLEANING. Because so many gun accidents occur when a firearm is being cleaned, special and extreme care should be taken to be sure your gun is unloaded before disassembly, cleaning and reassembly. Keep ammunition away from the cleaning location. Never test the mechanical function of any firearms with live ammunition. 9 ALWAYS UNLOAD YOUR PISTOL WHEN NOT IN USE. Your responsibilities do not end when your firearm is unattended. Store your pistol and ammunition separately and well beyond the reach of children. Take all safeguards to ensure your pistol does not become available to untrained, inexperienced or unwelcome hands. 10 USE THE PROPER AMMUNTION. The barrel and action of this pistol have been made with substantial safety margins over the pressures developed by established American commercial loads. HOWEVER, BROWNING ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR ACCIDENTS WHICH OCCUR THROUGH THE USE OF CARTRIDGES OF NON-STANDARD DIMENSIONS OR THAT DEVELOP PRESSURES IN EXCESS OF COMMERICALLY AVALABLE AMMUNITION THAT HAS BEEN LOADED IN ACCORDANCE WITH STANDARDS ESTABLISHED BY THE SPORTING ARMS AND AMMUNITION MANUFACTURERS INSTITUTE (SAAMI).
EXAMINE EVERY CARTRIDGE YOU PUT IN YOUR BUCK MARK PISTOL. Your Buck Mark pistol is designed and chambered for 22 Long Rifle cartridges only. Browning cannot assume any responsibility for the use of unsafe or improper arms and ammunition combinations. It is your responsibility to read and heed all warnings in this instruction manual and on ammunition boxes.

11 DISCHARGING FIREARMS IN POORLY VENTILATED AREAS, CLEANING FIREARMS, OR HANDLING AMMUNITION MAY RESULT IN EXPOSURE TO LEAD AND OTHER SUBSTANCES KNOWN TO CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS, REPRODUCTIVE HARM AND OTHER SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY. HAVE ADEQUATE VENTILATION AT ALL TIMES, WASH HANDS THOROUGHLY AFTER EXPOSURE. 12 DO NOT SNAP THE FIRING PIN ON AN EMPTY CHAMBER THE CHAMBER MAY NOT BE EMPTY! Treat every gun with the respect due a loaded gun, even though you are certain the gun is unloaded. 13 KEEP YOU FINGER AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER WHILE UNLOADING AND LOADING UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT. 14 BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND BACKSTOP. Take additional care during low light periods. Know the range of your ammunition. Never shoot at water or hard objects. 15 DROPPING YOUR BUCK MARK 22 WHEN LOADED CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE EVEN WITH THE SAFETY ON. Be extremely careful while hunting or during any shooting activity, to avoid dropping a loaded firearm. 16 ALWAYS COMPLETELY UNLOAD YOUR PISTOLS CHAMBER BEFORE CROSSING A FENCE, CLIMBING A TREE, JUMPING A DITCH OR NEGOTIATING OTHER OBSTACLES. Never place your Buck Mark 22 on a car, or on any unstable object. 17 IF YOUR BUCK MARK 22 FAILS TO FIRE, KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. Hold this position for a minimum of 30 seconds. Carefully open the action and remove the cartridge. If the rim is indented, the cartridge should be disposed of in a way that cannot cause harm. If the rim is not indented, your firearm should be examined by a qualified gunsmith and the cause of the malfunction should be corrected before further use. 18 WEAR EYE AND EAR PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING. Unprotected, repeated exposure to gunfire can cause hearing damage. Wear hearing protectors (shooting ear plugs or muffs) to guard against

Page 6

such damage. Wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes from flying particles. Always keep a safe distance between the muzzle of your firearm and any persons nearby, as muzzle blast, debris and ejecting shells could inflict serious injury. Also, wear eye protection when disassembling and cleaning your pistol to prevent the possibility of springs, spring-tensioned parts, solvents or other agents from contacting your eyes. 19 BE DEFENSIVE AND ON GUARD AGAINST UNSAFE GUN HANDLING AROUND YOU AND OTHERS. Dont be timid when it comes to gun safety. If you observe other shooters violating any of these safety precautions, politely suggest safer handling practices. 20 SUPERVISE AND TEACH FIREARMS SAFETY TO ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY. This is especially important when children and nonshooters are involved. Closely supervise newcomers to the shooting sports. Encourage enrollment in hunting/shooting safety courses. 21 NEVER DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR TAKE ANY TYPE OF DRUGS BEFORE OR DURING SHOOTING. Your vision and judgment could be dangerously impaired, making your gun handling unsafe to you or to others. 22 PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AVOID UNAUTHORIZED SERVICING. Your Buck Mark 22 is a mechanical device which will not last forever, and as such, is subject to wear and requires periodic inspection, adjustment, and service. Like all Browning firearms, your Buck Mark 22 should be serviced by a Browning Recommended Service Center or by Brownings service facility in Arnold, Missouri.

BROWNING CANNOT ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR INJURIES SUFFERED OR CAUSED BY UNAUTHORIZED SERVICING, ALTERATIONS OR MODIFICATIONS OF BROWNING FIREARMS.
Read and heed all warnings in this instruction book, on ammunition boxes and with all accessories that you install on your firearm. It is your responsibility to secure the most up-to-date information on the safe handling procedures for your Browning

Page 7

gun. Browning assumes no liability for incidents which occur when unsafe or improper gun accessories or ammunition combinations are used. Do not, under any circumstance, alter the trigger, safety or parts of the firing mechanism of this or any other firearm. Failure to obey this warning may result in injury or death to yourself or others.

In conventional gun terminology, the position and movement of pistol parts are described as they occur with the pistol horizontal and in normal firing position, i.e. the muzzle is forward or front; the sights are upward or on top. For general nomenclature refer to Figures 1 and 2. General functions and procedures are illustrated

Page 9

using the standard Buck Mark pistol. Procedures unique to an individual model are illustrated separately.

SERIAL NUMBER

The serial number of your Buck Mark 22 pistol can be found stamped on the left side of the pistol, in front of the trigger guard.
G E N E R A L O P E R AT I O N
Your new Browning is a blow-back operated, autoloading pistol. With the chamber and magazine loaded and the safety in the off safe or fire position, the pistol will fire a single round with each successive pull of the trigger until the magazine and chamber are empty. The slide of the pistol is designed to stay open after the last cartridge has been fired.

SAFETY

The Buck Mark 22 incorporates a thumb operated sear block safety. To put the mechanism on safe the slide must be fully forward with the hammer cocked. The thumb safety lever is then pressed upward into the recess provided for it in the slide (Figure 3). Note: this may require firm pressure. Be sure the lever travels its maximum upward movement and is completely engaged in the recess. Although the sear is now blocked, abusive handling such as a sharp blow could dislodge the hammer or otherwise cause the firing pin to move forward and discharge a cartridge.

To remove the magazine, push the magazine release button located on the left of the frame behind the trigger.
S L I D E S T O P O P E N L AT C H
When the slide is drawn rearward, the stop open latch can be raised to lock the slide in its open position. With a magazine loaded into the frame, this latch is automatically actuated to lock the slide after the last shot is fired (Figure 4).

REMOVING THE MAGAZINE

To remove the magazine simply push the magazine release button located on the left side of the frame, behind the trigger. This releases the magazine which can be caught with the other hand and extracted (Figure 5).

LOADING AND FIRING

1 At all times while loading, BE CERTAIN THE MUZZLE IS POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. With the slide locked to the rear, using the stop open latch, and with the magazine out of the gun, inspect the chamber to be sure it is empty (Figure 6). Close the slide and place the manual thumb safety in the on safe position. 2 Depress the magazines follower button with the thumb of one hand while inserting the cartridges with the other hand (Figure 7). Insert the loaded magazine into the pistol, being certain that the magazine is

pressed completely in and is being retained by the magazine latch. 3 To load the chamber, move the manual thumb safety lever down into the off safe position and pull the slide completely back. Release the slide. It will move forward under spring pressure and feed the first cartridge from the magazine into the chamber (Figure 8). THE PISTOL IS NOW READY FOR FIRING.

FIGURE 8

Release the slide to feed the first cartridge from the magazine into the chamber.
4 After pulling the trigger and firing the cartridge, the pistol automatically ejects the fired cartridge and feeds a fresh cartridge from the magazine into the chamber ready for a second shot. Thus the shooter may fire the pistol until the magazine is empty, merely by pulling the trigger for each shot. After the last shot is fired, the stop open latch automatically holds the slide in its open or rearward position. 5 During reloading, it is recommended that you remove the empty magazine, inspect the chamber to be sure it is empty, then close the slide and place the manual thumb safety in the on safe position.

Page 12

By inserting the loaded magazine with the slide closed, there is no danger of inadvertently tripping the stop open latch and feeding a live cartridge into the chamber from the magazine.
CAUTION: You will have observed by cocking the pistol that the slide moves rearward about one inch past the rear of the frame. In shooting, neither hand should be in a position where it could be hit by the slide in its rearward movement. DO NOT USE UNORTHODOX SIGHTING METHODS WHERE THE PISTOL IS HELD CLOSE TO THE EYE.
SINGLE SHOT LOADING AND SHOOTING
If you should wish to teach a newcomer to the sport how to shoot with this pistol, we recommend single shot loading during training. However, do not load the single round directly into the chamber. The recommended procedure is: 1 Remove the magazine from the pistol. 2 Inspect the chamber to be sure it is empty. 3 Close the slide and place the manual thumb safety in the on safe position. 4 Load a single round into the magazine. 5 Insert the magazine into the pistol. 6 When shooting is desired, place the manual thumb safety in the off safe position. 7 With the finger away from the trigger, cycle the slide, feeding the single round from the magazine to the chamber. 8 THE PISTOL IS NOW READY FOR FIRING.

UNLOADING

To remove the cartridge remaining in the chamber, be certain the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction, raise the thumb safety lever to its on safe position, press the magazine release button and withdraw the magazine from the pistol. Then move the safety to the off safe

Page 13

position and slowly pull rearward on the slide to extract and eject the cartridge from the chamber.

INSPECT THE ACTION AND CHAMBER TO BE SURE NO LIVE CARTRIDGE REMAINS IN THE PISTOL. With the magazine removed, the stop open latch must be raised manually to hold the slide open.

SIGHT ADJUSTMENT

BUCK MARK AND MICRO BUCK MARK
All Buck Mark pistols are equipped with Browning Pro Target Sights. These precision rear sights are screw adjustable with 16 clicks per revolution on both the elevation and windage screw. When performing all sight adjustment procedures, MAKE SURE YOUR PISTOL IS FULLY UNLOADED. Remove the magazine, check the chamber and point the muzzle in a safe direction. WINDAGE: To move the point of impact to the right, turn the screw located on the right side in a clockwise direction (Figure 9). To move the point of impact to the left, turn the screw in a counterclockwise direction. ELEVATION: To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw, located just forward of the rear sight notch, in a counterclockwise direction. To lower the point of impact, turn the elevation screw in a clockwise direction (Figure 10).

TA R G E T 5. 5 M O D E L S
When performing all sight adjustment procedures, MAKE SURE YOUR PISTOL IS FULLY UNLOADED. Remove the magazine, and check the chamber for cartridges. Always point the muzzle in a safe direction during actual adjustments. The Target 5.5 also has a fully adjustable Browning Pro Target rear sight with an adjustable front post sight. Both front and rear sights are hooded. To adjust the sights it is not necessary to remove the front and rear sight hoods. FRONT SIGHT ADJUSTMENTS: The front blade can be adjusted for elevation and for width to accommodate more precise sight settings and different stances. BLADE WIDTH: To increase or decrease the width of the blade, loosen the front set screw found on the front of the top sight rib (above the muzzle) with the 1/16" Allen wrench (supplied). Insert the slotted front sight adjusting wrench (supplied) into the access hole at the top of the sight hood and rotate the blade up to 90 degrees, to the desired width (Figure 11). Retighten the set screw with the Allen wrench. BLADE ELEVATION: Vertical point of impact can be changed by lowering or raising the front blade. Loosen the set screw as explained above. Again, using the slotted adjusting wrench, turn the blade clockwise to lower the blade and RAISE the point of impact. Turn the blade counterclockwise to raise the blade and LOWER the point of impact.

Disassembly of the Field 5.5 and Target 5.5 models is identical to the regular Buck Mark with a few minor exceptions. 1 Remove the rear sight base screw located behind the rear sight (Figure 16). On Target 5.5 models the sight hood may have to be removed by inserting your index finger inside the hood and pulling up and outward on one side of the hood until it comes off. (Replace in reverse order.)
CAUTION: WHEN REINSTALLING THE REAR SIGHT BASE SCREW, MAKE CERTAIN TO REPLACE THE LOCKWASHER. ALWAYS USE THE SIGHT BASE SCREW LOCKWASHER SUPPLIED WITH YOUR PISTOL. IF LOST, ORDER A NEW LOCKWASHER FROM BROWNING. FAILURE TO USE A BROWNING SIGHT BASE SCREW LOCKWASHER MAY MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO REMOVE THE REAR SIGHT BASE SCREW.
2 Loosen the barrel mounting screw found below the barrel, at the front of the frame approximately 3 1/2 turns (Figure 17). 3 To remove the barrel, pull the slide back about 1". Then pivot the barrel down and lift the barrel off of the frame (Figure 18). Set the barrel aside.

4 Remove the recoil spring and slide. To do this pull the slide back approximately one inch and lift the recoil spring guide rod upward from the slide. The buffer will usually remain in place in the slide, in front of the recoil post; however, it may stay affixed to the end of the recoil spring guide rod. In either case, remove the firing pin housing assembly and set it aside for cleaning (Figure 19). 5 Lift the slide from the frame. This is sufficient disassembly for all practical cleaning and lubrication required. Further disassembly should be performed only by a competent gunsmith or a Browning service facility. Do not remove the grips from the pistol, as they serve to retain and position internal parts.

CLEANING SUGGESTIONS
WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN DISASSEMBLING AND CLEANING YOUR PISTOL.
1 Disassemble the pistol as previously described in the section titled Disassembly on pages 15-17. 2 The slide and firing pin assemblies may be cleaned with any good cleaning solvent or light oil and then dried with a clean cloth, or preferably blown clean with air pressure, if available. Be sure to wear eye protection whenever cleaning your pistol. 3 Clean the barrel using a pistol cleaning rod with a tip and a patch made for 22 caliber pistols. Depending on the amount of use, the barrel may need to be cleaned with a good quality nitro solvent. Ordinarily a light lubricating oil will suffice for this purpose. 4 Use a small brush to remove dirt or other foreign matter from the other parts of the action. Lightly lubricate all moving parts with a good, light gun oil. Use oil sparingly; a very light film is sufficient. Browning Gun Oil is ideally suited for this purpose. 5 Frequently inspect your pistol and magazine to determine a need for cleaning. Normally, the magazine should be cleaned at least every 500 to 1000 rounds. This assures the best operation since a certain amount of lubricant and dirt will gradually collect in the mechanism. Place the magazine in a good gun cleaning solvent and agitate to loosen and remove dirt and grease. While the magazine is still submerged, cycle the magazine follower back and forth a few times. Shake all excess solvent from the magazine and dry with a cloth, or preferably blow clean with air pressure, if available.

CAUTION: MOST SOLVENTS ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE. APPROPRIATE SAFETY MEASURES SHOULD BE PRACTICED WHEN WORKING WITH SOLVENTS.

It is your responsibility to read and heed all warnings in your instruction manual and on ammunition boxes. 11 DISCHARGING FIREARMS IN POORLY VENTILATED AREAS, CLEANING FIREARMS, OR HANDLING AMMUNITION MAY RESULT IN EXPOSURE TO LEAD AND OTHER SUBSTANCES KNOWN TO CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS, REPRODUCTIVE HARM AND OTHER SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY. HAVE ADEQUATE VENTILATION AT ALL TIMES, WASH HANDS THOROUGHLY AFTER EXPOSURE. 12 DO NOT SNAP THE FIRING PIN ON AN EMPTY CHAMBER THE CHAMBER MAY NOT BE EMPTY! Treat every gun with the respect due a loaded gun, even though you are certain the gun is unloaded. 13 KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER WHILE UNLOADING AND LOADING UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT. 14 BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND BACKSTOP.

Take additional care during low light periods. Know the range of your ammunition. Never shoot at water or hard objects. 15 DROPPING YOUR HANDGUN WHEN LOADED CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE EVEN WITH THE SAFETY ON. Be extremely careful while hunting or during any shooting activity, to avoid dropping a loaded firearm.
16 ALWAYS COMPLETELY UNLOAD YOUR PISTOLS CHAMBER BEFORE CROSSING A FENCE, CLIMBING A TREE, JUMPING A DITCH OR NEGOTIATING OTHER OBSTACLES. Never place your firearm on a car, or on any unstable object. 17 IF YOUR FIREARM FAILS TO FIRE, KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. Hold this position for a minimum of 30 seconds. Carefully open the action and remove the cartridge. If the rim is indented, the cartridge should be disposed of in a way that cannot cause harm. If the rim is not indented, your firearm should be examined by a qualified gunsmith and the cause of the malfunction should be corrected before further use. 18 WEAR EYE AND EAR PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING.
Unprotected, repeated exposure to gunfire can cause hearing damage. Wear hearing protectors (shooting ear plugs or muffs) to guard against such damage. Wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes from flying particles. Always keep a safe distance between the muzzle of your firearm and any persons nearby, as muzzle blast, debris and ejecting shells could inflict serious injury. Also, wear eye protection when disassembling and cleaning your pistol to prevent the possibility of springs, spring-tensioned parts, solvents or other agents from contacting your eyes. 19 BE DEFENSIVE AND ON GUARD AGAINST UNSAFE GUN HANDLING AROUND YOU AND OTHERS. Dont be timid when it comes to gun safety. If you observe other shooters violating any of these safety precautions, politely suggest safer handling practices. 20 SUPERVISE AND TEACH FIREARMS SAFETY TO ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY. This is especially important when children and non-shooters are involved. Closely supervise newcomers to the shooting sports. Encourage enrollment in hunting/shooting safety courses. 21 NEVER DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR TAKE ANY TYPE OF DRUGS BEFORE OR DURING SHOOTING. Your vision and judgment could be dangerously impaired, making your gun handling unsafe to you or to others.
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AVOID UNAUTHORIZED SERVICING.
Your firearm is a mechanical device which will not last forever, and as such, is subject to wear and requires periodic inspection, adjustment, and service. Like all Browning firearms, your firearm should be serviced by a Browning Recommended Service Center or by Brownings service facility in Arnold, Missouri.

You Are Responsible For Firearm Safety
Failure to follow any of the following warnings could result in serious injury or death. As a gun owner, you accept a set of demanding responsibilities. How seriously you take these responsibilities can be the difference between life and death.
Remember, safe gun handling does not stop with your firearms mechanical safety devices, it starts there. Always treat this firearm with the respect due a loaded, ready-to-fire firearm. Some firearms do not have a mechanical safety. Many target firearms, lever action firearms and pistols do not have manual safety mechanisms. Therefore it is critical to read and understand the owners manual for every firearm which explains the safe operation of the firearm. While it is a good idea to test your firearms mechanical safety periodically for proper function, never test the safety while your firearm is loaded or pointed in an unsafe direction.
There is no excuse for careless or abusive handling of any firearm. At all times handle this firearm and all other firearms with intense respect for their power and potential danger. Please read and understand all of the cautions, warnings, notices, proper handling procedures and instructions outlined in this owners manual before using your new firearm.
1ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE OF YOUR firearm POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION even though you are certain it is unloaded. Never point any firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot. Be extremely alert and aware of all persons and property within the range of your ammunition. 2Never rely totally on your Firearms mechanical safety device. Like any mechanical device, a Safety can sometimes fail; it can be jarred or inadvertently manipulated into an unsafe condition. The word safety describes a firearms trigger block mechanism, sear block mechanism, hammer block mechanism or firing pin block mechanism. Mechanical safeties are designed to place your firearm in a safer status, and no guarantee can be made that the firearm will not fire even if the safety is in the on safe position. Mechanical safeties merely aid safe gun handling and are no excuse for pointing your firearms muzzle in an unsafe direction. See Operation of the Safety on page 10 for instructions on the operation of this firearms safety.
3Whenever you handle any firearm, or hand it to someone, always open the action immediately and visually check the firearms chamber to Make certain that the firearm is completely unloaded. Make certain the firearm does not inadvertently contain any ammunition. Always keep the chamber empty and the safety in the on safe position unless shooting is imminent. 4Always WEAR Ear AND Eye PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING. Unprotected, repeated exposure to gunfire can cause hearing damage. Wear hearing protection (shooting ear plugs or muffs) to guard against such damage.
Wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes from flying particles. Allow proper distance (eye relief) between a scope and your eye when firing a scoped pistol, rifle or shotgun. Do not use unorthodox shooting methods that could cause the rearward travel of the slide or bolt of a firearm to contact your eyes, face or hands. Always keep a safe distance between the muzzle of your firearm and any persons nearby, as muzzle blast, debris and ejecting cartridges could inflict serious injury.

10Be alert to the signs of ammunition malfunction. if you detect an off sound or light recoil when a cartridge is fired, do not load another cartridge into the chamber. If your firearm fails to fire, keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction for a minimum of 30 seconds. Carefully open the action and remove the cartridge from the chamber. If the primer is indented, the defective cartridge should be disposed of in a way that cannot cause harm. If the primer is not indented, your firearm should be examined by a qualified gunsmith and the cause of the malfunction corrected before further use. Glance down the barrel to make sure that no obstructions remain in the barrel. Completely clear the barrel before loading and firing again. Failure to follow these instructions can cause extensive damage to your firearm and possible serious injury to yourself and others. 11 never insert a cartridge of the incorrect caliber into any firearm. The caliber of your firearm is marked on the barrel. Store all cartridges of different calibers in completely separate and wellmarked containers. Never store cartridges of mixed calibers in a common container or in your pockets. See page 12 for more information on the correct ammunition for your firearm.
08-243-BFA_Buckmark Pistol OM.indd 4-5
12 examine every cartridge you put in your firearm. We cannot assume any responsibility for the use of unsafe or improper firearm and ammunition combinations or damage or injury caused by damaged ammunition. It is your responsibility to read and heed all warnings in this owners manual and on ammunition boxes. See page 12 for more information on the correct ammunition for your firearm. 13USE ONLY SAAMI APPROVED AMMUNITION. The barrel and action of this firearm have been made with substantial safety margins beyond the pressures developed by established American commercial loads. Nevertheless, we can assume no liability for incidents which occur through the use of cartridges of nonstandard dimensions or which develop pressures in excess of commercially available ammunition which has been loaded in accordance with standards established by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI). 14Make sure of adequate ventilation in the area that you discharge a firearm. Lead exposure can occur from discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, cleaning firearms or handling ammunition. Lead is a substance that has been known to cause birth defects, reproductive harm and other serious injury. Wash hands thoroughly after exposure to ammunition or after cleaning a firearm. 15 do not snap the firing pin on an empty chamber, the chamber may not be empty! Treat every firearm with the respect due a loaded firearm, even though you are certain the firearm is unloaded. 16KEEP YOUR FINGERs AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER WHILE LOADING and unlOADINg UNTIL shooting is imminent.

17BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND BACKSTOP, particularly during low light periods. Know the range of your ammunition. Never shoot at water or hard objects. 18ALWAYS UNLOAD your firearms CHAMBER BEFORE CROSSING A FENCE, CLIMBING A TREE, JUMPING A DITCH OR NEGOTIATING OTHER OBSTACLES. Never place your firearm on or against a fence, tree, car or other similar object. 19BE DEFENSIVE AND ON GUARD AGAINST UNSAFE GUN HANDLING AROUND YOU AND OTHERS. Dont be timid when it comes to firearm safety. If you observe other shooters violating any of these safety precautions, politely suggest safer handling practices. 20BE CERTAIN your firearm is UNLOADED BEFORE CLEANING. Because so many firearm accidents occur when a firearm is being cleaned, special and extreme care should be taken to be sure your firearm is unloaded before disassembly, cleaning and reassembly. Keep ammunition away from the cleaning location. Never test the mechanical function of any firearm with live ammunition. 21TEACH AND SUPERVISE FIREARMS SAFETY TO ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY, ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN AND NON-SHOOTERS. Closely supervise newcomers to the shooting sports. Encourage enrollment in hunting and shooting safety courses. 22NEVER DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR TAKE ANY TYPE OF DRUGS BEFORE OR DURING SHOOTING. Your vision, motor skills and judgment could be dangerously impaired, making your gun handling unsafe to you and to others.
08-243-BFA_Buckmark Pistol OM.indd 6-7
23 rEAD AND HEED ALL WARNINGS in this owners manual, on ammunition boxes and with all accessories that you install on your firearm. It is your responsibility to secure the most up-to-date information on the safe handling procedures of your Browning firearm. We assume no liability for incidents which occur when unsafe or improper firearm accessories or ammunition combinations are used. 24 Practice perIODIC MAINTENANCE, AVOID UNAUTHORIZED SERVICING. Your firearm is a mechanical device which will not last forever, and as such, is subject to wear and requires periodic inspection, adjustment and service. Browning firearms should be serviced by a Browning Recommended Service Facility or by our Service Facility in Arnold, Missouri. We cannot assume any responsibility for injuries suffered or caused by unauthorized servicing, alterations or modifications of Browning firearms. 25WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE ON FIREARMS THAT HAVE BEEN ALTERED, ADDED TO OR SUBSTANTIALLY CHANGED. Removal of metal from the barrel, or modifications of the firing mechanism and/or operating parts, may lead to a refusal of service on such firearms. We will charge you for parts and labor to return the firearm to original specifications.

GENERAL d e s c r i p t i o n a n d O P ERATION
The Browning Buck Mark pistol is a single-action autoloading pistol that utilizes a straight blow-back, recoil-operated design for simplicity and reliability. Cartridges are fed from a removable magazine that makes loading the pistol fast and easy. With the chamber and magazine loaded and the safety in the off safe or fire position, the pistol will fire a single cartridge with each successive pull of the trigger until the chamber and magazine are empty. The slide of the pistol is designed to stay open after the last cartridge has been fired. The frame is made from CNC-machined 7075-T6 aluminum to ensure tight, consistent parts fit and excellent reliability.

N o m e n c l at u r e

In conventional firearm terminology, the position and movement of parts are described as they occur with the pistol horizontal and in normal firing position; i.e. the muzzle is forward or front; the sights are upward or on top. For general nomenclature refer to Figure 1. General functions and procedures are described and illustrated using a Buck Mark Camper pistol. Procedures unique to individual models are discussed separately.

Initial Cleaning

NOTICE! PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE CLEANING YOUR FIREARM.

C l e a n i n g P a r t s w i t h Sp e c i a l F i n i s h e s

S e r i a l N u mb e r

The serial number of your Buck Mark pistol can be found stamped on the left side of the pistol frame, in front of the trigger guard.
o p e r at i o n o f t h e S a f e t y
The Buck Mark pistol incorporates a manual thumb-operated, sear blocking safety. To put the mechanism on safe, the slide must be fully forward with the hammer cocked. The manual thumb safety lever is then pushed upward into the recess provided for it in the slide (Figure 2). Note: this may require firm pressure. Be sure the lever travels to its maximum upward movement and is completely engaged in the recess. Although the sear is now blocked, abusive handling such as a sharp blow could dislodge the hammer or otherwise cause the firing pin to move forward and discharge a cartridge.
Be especially careful when cleaning guns with camouflage, Dura-Touch Armor Coating and other special finishes. Always prevent these surfaces from coming in contact with cleaning solvents, barrel scrubbers and other strong chemicals. It is preferable to clean these surfaces with a light gun oil containing no solvents, or with a damp cloth and mild dish soap (be sure to keep water out of the action). When cleaning your firearms bore and action, protect the external finishes from any contact with chemicals used. Also, avoid any contact between external finishes and other strong chemicals like those found in DEET-containing insect repellents, sunscreens, etc. Damage to camouflage, Dura-Touch and other finishes caused by chemicals is irreversible and not repairable.

Cleaning

S l i d e r e l e a s e / S t o p L a t ch
The slide release/stop latch is on the left side of the slide, above the magazine release (Figure 3). It automatically engages after the last shot in the magazine has been fired. It can be also be used to lock the slide in the rearward position when the magazine is removed. Pull the slide all the way to the rear and press upward on the slide release/stop latch.
Various exposed metal parts of your new firearm have been coated at the factory with a rust preventative compound. Before firing your pistol, clean the anti-rust compound from the inside of the barrel, receiver and the action-chamber areas. A fine, light gun oil is ideal for removing this compound and for giving your new firearm its first lubrication. However, any quality firearm oil may be used. Clean the barrel using a cleaning rod and patch as explained under Cleaning

and Maintenance Suggestions on page 22. If your Buck Mark pistol is to be stored, it is acceptable to leave the rust preventative compound on the pistol and keep it in its original packaging.

NOTICE! This is a specialized, finely fitted mechanism. Do not TAKE YOUR firearmS ACTION APART beyond what is explained in this owners manual. It is unnecessary, and may permanently damage the inner mechanism or render the firearm unsafe to disassemble it for routine cleaning and oiling. Of course, misfortunes (such as dropping your gun in water) require appropriate attention, and in such circumstances we recommend you immediately take your firearm to a qualified gunsmith.

Magazine Capacity

The magazine capacity of the Buck Mark Pistol is 10 cartirdges.

(supplied) into the access hole at the top of the sight hood and rotate the blade up to 90 degrees, to the desired width (Figure 10). Retighten the set screw with the Allen wrench. Blade Elevation: Vertical point of impact can be changed by lowering or raising the front blade. Loosen the set screw as explained above. Again, using the slotted adjusting wrench, turn the blade clockwise to lower the blade and raise the point of impact. Turn the blade counterclockwise to raise the blade and lower the point of impact. Removing the Sight Hoods: The front hood can be removed by sliding it forward off the sight base. The rear hood is removed by inserting your index finger inside the hood and pulling up and outward on one side of the hood until it comes off. Replace the sight hoods in reverse order.
notice! If it becomes necessary to remove the sight hoods, take special care to avoid marring the finish of your pistol.
these surfaces with a light gun oil containing no solvents, or with a damp cloth and mild dish soap (be sure to keep water out of the action). When cleaning your firearms bore and action, protect the external finishes from any contact with chemicals used. Also, avoid any contact between external finishes and other strong chemicals like those found in DEET-containing insect repellents, sunscreens, etc. Damage to camouflage, Dura-Touch and other finishes caused by chemicals is irreversible and not repairable.

Figure 11

Clean with a nylon brush.
Depending on the amount of use, the bore may need to be cleaned with a good quality nitro solvent. Inspect the chamber and bore for powder fouling. A normal amount of powder residue can be expected and is not serious. It can usually be removed with a patch saturated with nitro solvent. If, or when, fouling should become heavy, it can be removed with a brass bore brush. Dip or spray the brush with nitro solvent and scrub the chamber and bore until the fouling is removed. To prevent brass bristles from breaking off, the brush should be pushed completely through the barrel before being withdrawn. Alternately, the Browning Barrel Weasel makes cleaning the bore of your firearm fast and easy. Be sure to follow all instructions when using any product to clean your firearm.
NOTICE! Do not place large quantities of oil into the action. excess oil will run back into the wood of the grips (if so equipped) and soften of the wood, with consequential loosening of the grips.
1 Pull the slide rearward and lock it open with the slide release/stop latch. Visually inspect the action and chamber to be certain they are empty. 2 Dip or spray a small, stiff bristled nylon brush with a quality gun cleaning solvent and scrub the breech and face of the slide to remove build up (Figure 11).
4 After all fouling has been removed, the chamber and bore should be wiped dry. Next pass a slightly oiled patch through the bore for preservation. A fine, light gun oil is recommended. 5 Use a small nylon brush to remove dirt or other foreign matter from the other parts of the action. 6 Lightly lubricate all moving parts, the frame where the slide contacts it and the spring guide with a high-quality, lightweight gun oil. Use oil sparingly, a very light film is sufficient. A fine, lightweight gun oil is ideally suited for this purpose.
notice! Do not use excessive lubricant. Using too much lubricant can cause the buildup of dirt, grit or powder residue, which can interfere with the functioning of your pistol.

cleaning the magazine

MOST SOLVENTS ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE. WEAR EYE PROTECTION and practice APPROPRIATE SAFETY MEASURES WHEN WORKING WITH SOLVENTS to avoid serious injury.
3 Clean the bore using a pistol cleaning rod with a tip and a patch made for 22 caliber pistols. Ordinarily a lightweight high-quality gun oil will suffice for cleaning the bore. Carefully insert the rod and patch into the muzzle and run it back and forth several times. Do not allow the cleaning rod to strike the crown of the muzzle, as damage to this area can affect the accuracy of your pistol.

Frequently inspect magazines to determine the need for cleaning as lubricant and dirt will gradually collect in the mechanism. Normally, the magazine should be cleaned after firing 500 to 1000 cartridges.
08-243-BFA_Buckmark Pistol OM.indd 22-23
1 Clean the magazine by spraying it both inside and out with an aerosol solvent that will not adversely affect the polymer magazine follower or corrode the metal components. 2 Cycle the magazine follower to loosen and remove dirt and grease. 3 Depress the follower and, using a cleaning rod with a tip and patch that will fit into the top of the magazine, clean any deposits of built-up material from the front of the magazine. 4 Spray the magazine again with polymer-safe solvent. 5 Shake all excess solvent from the magazine and dry with a cloth or blow dry with compressed air, if available.
