Hey, thanks, PT!

My Camper should look very much like Drew's soon. I look forward to posting pics.

A quaint little bargain rimfire plinker. Same BSA as Drew's, but with the B-Square rail.

Just fills the requisites for the local Bullseye club.

Mods?

Hello, Rusty.
I hope you won't mind me reposting your gun porn...

Please tell us a bit about your safety, slide lock and mag release!
You mentioned it was an older model... are those modified? It looks like brushed aluminum.

don't mind at all.

as mentioned earlier, my buckmark is 15 years young. got it back in 1990. the mods you see (mag release, safety, and slide stop) are prototypes that i am playing around with. you're right, it is brushed aluminum. since i am working with aluminum, i can have future parts anodized to different colors. the mag release button is made from stainless.

Very handsome mods! Anything you'd be willing to share? For a fee, of course. Hm... Very nice.

Well, quite talking and get to work. I want mine in blue anodized, to match my new barrel.

still in the early stages

what do you guys mean? not content with browning factory installed parts? next thing you know someone will be selling after-market parts for the 1911!! (wink, wink).

here's the deal:

first, thank you for the kind words and complements regarding my "handy work".

here's the upside to things:

the oversized and extended mag release can be offered as a "drop-in" part. looks like the button has not changed in fit and function throughout the buckmark's evolution, which means the part is not series specific. should drop in in all buckmark pistols and rifles.

the extended slide stop can be offered as a "drop-in" as well. this part is a little trickier since clearance with the grip will be an issue for proper and reliable operation. this all depends on the grips installed on your pistols. in cases, where clearance is an issue, owner has to decide where material will be removed (either wood, plastic, rubber, etc. from the grip or aluminum if recontouring the slide stop. initial observations during prototype development leads me to believe that this part might be series specific. if so, it's not a big deal and it will be an issue of matching the part to the series of your pistol or rifle. i will figure this out soon when i get my hands on my buddy's newer series buckmark.

the extended and recontoured safety is where we kind of hit a snag. this part needs to be fitted individually to each gun. this is the same for any other "drop-in" part concerning the safety mechanism. there are also LIABILITY issues that i'd like to AVOID.

here's one possible "work-around" - i can offer this one as a service or a retrofit. you would have to un-install the factory installed safety from your gun, send it to me and i'll retrofit it and send it back to you. for those of you not familiar with the full-blown (pins, spings, etc...) detailed disassembly of your pistol, you'll need the service of a qualified gunsmith (which adds $$$ to the total cost of the mod). i am sure that some of you would be willing to spend your hard earned money to get this done but I CAN'T THINK OF OFFERING THIS LAST MOD AND NOT COVER MY %%%%% LEGALLY WHEN IT COMES TO LIABILITY. ANY INPUT OR FEEDBACK ON THIS MATTER WOULD BE WELCOME AND CONSIDERED.

let's not bum our high by ending it with LIABILITY concerns, so here's some good news. as mentioned earlier, these parts (since they're made from aluminum) can be anodized to match your other components (ie. barrel). in reality, SKY'S THE LIMIT to all the possible configurations for your buckmark. if you're not into anodizing, you can have it powder coated or applied with baked laquer or gunkote. the slide stops and safeties can be checkered, stippled, or even engraved to give each buckmark you own its own identity. stay tuned, more things to come (as long as my dremel is working)!

Oh, please! Aftermarket 1911 parts?? That'll never happen!

Well, Rusty I was thinking more in terms of "drop-in" parts. As with practically all firearm mods, drop-ins... don't. A simple "Some fitting may be required" should solve that. You are not then responsible for a safety toggle that I install.

Now. Are you actually doing the "machining" with a Dremmell?? Aluminum is fairly maliable and I suppose it could be done, especially with such small parts. Might be a project I'd want to undertake myself. Hey, I have a Dremmell!

On my Buckmark -- vintage 2000 -- the safety and slide lock knobs are epoxied in place. (I know this because my slide stop knob came off. I had to chip the epoxy away and resecure it with a droplet of JB Weld.)

Should be a fairly easy, if tedious, job to clear away the epoxy and remove the old pieces. What remains is a metal tab with a small hole in it, to anchor the adhesive. Set the new ones in place for fitting measurements. Once fitting and final finish is complete, then JB Weld the pieces in place.

Sound like the right track?

Anyone know of any reputable Tac-Sol barrel dealers?

Aloha from the Big Island of Hawaii. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any reputable Tactical Solution barrel dealers who do internet sales. I live on the big Island of Hawaii, the nearest dealer is in Honolulu Oahu (Another island).
Most of my purchases are via internet (ebay). I looked thru Rimfire Central's advertisments, and couldn't find anyone that does internet sales of this product.
Mahalo,

You should be able to purchase factory direct. All of my purchases from them have been that way.

Dogman and All--

Here is my new Buck Mark Hunter. It is my off-hand gun and I simply love it.





My eyes are having the best experience with the Bushnell Trophy 2x scope, off-hand at 25 yards. From the bench, I have made sub-two inch groups at 100 yards using the red dot on my Beretta NEOS, though.
