Anyone know of a quick solution to add a handle to the side of the slide?
Dunno IF the slide is the same on the Rifle as the Pistol..?
If it is.. check this ... https://www.tandemkross.com/halo-Cha...ark_p_200.html

It is the same slide, the issue with the TK halo is that is extending a reciprocating mass even closer to the shooters face. If you ever see a BM rifle in person there is a sticker on the back of the slide warning of getting too close and there is a red dot on the metal loop for the stock that is a visual of "where not to stand"

Good Call Shoulda thought of that.

Also check out those slide rackers.

Moreover, a machinist should be able to fab one for you--just a rod of some sort that is threaded to screw on either side depending on your orientation: orthodox or southpaw.

This one would work, as all it needs is a countersunk screw and some drilling and tapping on your slide:

A buddy of mine has one,,,

A buddy of mine has one,,,
At least he did until it got broken in a car accident.

He had it in a soft case in his trunk and was rear-ended,,,
The carbine snapped in two just behind the grip.

Browning told him they could not repair the gun.

Before that happened though,,,
He and I used to duel at the range.

I have the Beretta NEOS Carbine Kit,,,
Which is a 25-50 yard gun at best.

I do believe his carbine had a bit more inherent accuracy than mine,,,
But like mine, his groups spread way out at 100 yards.

It's a fun (albeit pricey) range plinking gun,,,
But if you really want an MOA rifle,,,
It's not a good choice.

JMHO

The x-ring on the A25 100 yd target is 1 inch in diameter (1 MOA). People pay thousands for a rifle that will reliably get them in the 2 inch diameter 10 ring. So I think it's unrealistic to expect the Browning to get you there.

I got lost. What is "A25"?

Buckmark rifle

It is a nice gun but not a target rifle. My Ruger precision outshoots it every time.
Shooting from a rest helps but grouping is inconsistent. Seems to like CCI hollow points and Federal HV Match best.
I have to put a piece of a pool noodle on the barrel to stop barrel harmonics when I use a rest.
It is fun but not a target rifle

Left out a word... ‘no way’ it’ll shoot MOA

will it shoot 1" at 100yards? probably not. but ive shot a 4 hole cluster at 50 yards with all 10 rounds through mine, same with a mossberg 146, better with a CZ 452, but all wore 4x or 6x scopes and regardless, squirrel head @ 50 yards is all I look for in any 22 I spend less than $1000 in. Guys that like to shoot 100+ yards with a 22 have my respect, but Ive got a safe full of centerfires if I want to shoot 100 yards and in a nice compact hole.

Agreed with Chaser, more like 1.5-2 MOA at 100 yards with decent ammo.

Fun little rifles and a nice complement to a Buckmark pistol. General consensus, the heavy barrel doesn't shoot any better than the standard weight and it throws the balance too far forward.

Looking at completed sales on Gun Broker $500 range is a good deal, with a lot going for closer to or over $600. I think I paid $450 for my sporter but that was 8 or 9 years ago.

One slight negative is the slide reciprocating right in front of your face. Over oiled mine the first time out and it douched my glasses pretty good. You only make that mistake once
