Question Buckmark Contour 7 in as 1st handgun

Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all,

I like the 7 in barrel Contour, even if I feel the grip a little too big for my hands (as grips are concerned, I prefer UDX, as the rosewood).
It will be my first handgun, so far had only rifles (rimfire too).

Is the Contour 7 in a good choice, or better choose the 5 in barrel, or other Buckmark models ?
Gun will be used only in the range, informal bullseye at 25 m. I probably will scope or red dot it.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

BM Hunter with red dot

I put a Burris FF III on my Hunter. I like the model that you are getting as the red dot will fit on your Picatinny rail without modification.

The 7" barrel w/the extra weight out front will make it a better handing target and varmit pistol. I put the 7 in. fluted barrel on my BM Camper and it really improved handling for bowling pins.

I shoot a Medalist for pins most of the time with the 6" barrel and heavy barrel weight to hold down muzzle jump [not much to begin with] in traversing the targets {pins}. I think you will like the longer barrel.

If you are still unsure, handle any of the shorter barrel models and then make your decision.
