My new varmint



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all, just brought home a new buckmark varmint. It came in a pistol rug in a box with a thread protector and a brake, an owner’s manual with no instructions for disassembly and no Allen wrench. I will try to post a photo, I know there are plenty of instructions for takedown here, but I was wondering how often I should change the recoil spring and any other advice. Thanks

First, welcome to RFC.

I've read where people suggest replacing the recoil spring as often as every 5,000 rounds, but my experience is that they'll continue to function just fine well beyond that, to at least 10,000 rounds. But, if you shoot a lot, you will need to replace it eventually. If you're shooting competitively, and can't tolerate issues like a weak recoil spring, then change it every 5,000 rounds just to be on the safe side.

My advice is to read the Buck Mark Starter Thread (in the stickies). It's getting a bit old, but it's still packed with good information. For example, it has links to threads with suggestions for what parts to get when you order your backup recoil spring from Browning's parts department, among other things.

And then go enjoy shooting your new Varmint.

Cheers,
Dave

You would probably have to replace the buffer before the recoil spring.
