BMT - Buckmark Maintenance Tool



Log in to see fewer ads
so how many of you guys carry a toolbox to the range???

if you don't, you have not yet had a lesson in MURPHY"S LAW while at the range. believe me, one of these days you will.

if i'm in for an "extended" session (8 hours +) at the range, my "trusty" shooter's toolbox is on the "MUST BRING" list. then there are times when a QUICK visit to the range is all that is needed or allowed for because of time. when this is the case, lugging a full size toolbox might be a little OVERKILL and UN-NECESSARY.

though a well designed pistol, the buckmark CAN, if preventive measures (applying threadlocking compound on a couple screws) are not taken, go from running like a race car to running like a "clunker". most of the time, the "culprit" to some of your troubles during your range session is a mere screw beginning to loosen up.

here's a little "WIDGET" i came up with for those times when carrying a FULL toolkit is not practical.

BUCKMARK MAINTENANCE TOOL:



3/32 HEX BIT:



3/32 HEX BIT FOR INSTALLING AND REMOVING FRONT AND REAR SIGHT BASE SCREWS:



SAME BIT CAN BE USED FOR THOSE WHO'VE SWITCHED TO ALLEN TYPE GRIP SCREWS:



3/16 SLOTTED BIT FOR ADJUSTING PRO-TARGET SIGHTS:



ELEVATION AND WINDAGE ADJUSTMENT:



THUMBSAVER / MAG LOADER:



SPRING RETAINER CHANNEL:

this feature on the tool allows you to EASILY remove the slide (models with firing pin assembly blocks) WITHOUT BENDING OR DAMAGE TO THE RECOIL SPRING ROD.



here are links to a short video of the BMT in action->

as always, all comments and questions are welcome.

Some of us with older Buck Marks don't have the allen head screws... mine, made in 1991 has slotted screws. I presume from the pictures that the allen head driver can be changed for the proper screw driver to fit my pistol...

If so, this is a really neat tool that I'd certainly add to my toolbox.

Put me on the list for one also. That really clever rusty....

Maybe..... add a longer, slimmer end, for good reach for barrel removal??? Or will this one clear the barrel?

Great tool and video too.
That is a neat way to take off the slide.

How do you tighten your screws?
Mine keep getting loose when I shoot.
So I ended up using blue locite for the front screw and take it apart w/the back screw and barrel screw.

Any chance of adding a 7/64" hex for the barrel screw? I think I want one anyway, but that would seal the deal.

It would probably need to be right-angle because it doesn't look like the handle on your device would clear the barrel.
