Browning Buck Mark Rail



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm in the market for a Buck Mark and need to have a rail on it for a red dot. I see that a few Buck Marks come with an integral rail but many do not.
Does anyone know if there is an easy way to mount a rail on one of those that doesn't have one?

Thanks

sells a rail, around 35.00, but you have to remove the rear sight to mount the rail. i had one on my frst BM, worked great with a red dot sight. there are some other rails out there that have a rear sight. just a lot MORE expensive to buy. just be sure when you remove the screws you get them put back in the correct place, one is LONG one is SHORT. if you put them in the wrong place the pistol will NOT operate. i dont remember which is which, just PAY ATTENTION when you take them out. you wil love the BM, i have 2 and both are pure fun to shoot!!

Thanks for the quick response, I just found some rails on google, should have looked there first.
Could you re-post or pm me with the name or link to the rail your mentioned, it didn't make it into your message.

Thanks

Brownells sells a Buckmark Picatinny rail with integrated iron sights this way you can still use your Buckmark even without attached red dot.
Just remove the 2 original screws and attach the rail. Done.

Here is my result.


And here's the link to the Picatinny Rail I used.

The one he uses is the Tactical Solutions one that has an integral rear sight so you can take off the red dot and still use the iron sights. Its about 2x the price of any others because of the rear sight but it is nice if you plan on using both on occasion.

I've pretty much decided to go with the Hunter so won't be needing to add the rail after all.
If it turns out that I go another way I think I'll try this rail:

I really appreciate all of the suggestions.

Thanks

The Hunter was going to be my suggestion before I noted you didn't wish a factory installed rail. I've owned one for 5 years. Mine happens to carry a x4 Leupold scope. For my application I love the set up.

I suspect you found out that the cost of putting a rail on one of the lessor BuckMarks drove cost into the same spot as simply picking up a Hunter.

fwiw, the grips on the Hunter are lovely and hold up to constant use quite nicely.

Good luck.

Actually the grips were a main selling point.

I have the Weigand rail on my Buckmark and have had no problems what so ever! This rail is slightly thicker than the one offered by Browning and looks like this:
