Buying a Used Buckmark Challenge



Log in to see fewer ads
Im looking at a used Challenge 22. The handle is wood, it does not have the bull barrel. The grips are wood and there is an engraved buck (the Browning trademark) on the grip. There is no other checkering on it. Do you guys know about what year this one is? He is asking $350 I really want a MarkIV but may be able to make a trade for it.

The Buck Mark Challenge first came out in 1999 with either a 5 1/2 or 4 inch round barrel. The 4 inch barrel only produced in 1999 and 2000. The 5 1/2 inch barrel was continued to 2010. They had "smooth (disc) or checkered walnut grips with medallions" according to Blue Book of Gun Value.

The Buck Mark Challenge with Rose wood grip was new in 1916.

My 1999 Challenge has a un-checkered wood grips with the round Buck Mark medallion. You may be looking at one of these earlier models. Latest BBGV says $285 for one in 98% condition - $225 for 95%. Last MSR was $429.

Hope this helps. SO
