    In the market for a .22 pistol, and I think it’s between these two. Nothing fancy, one of the more basic models; not really concerned with Pic rails, fluted barrels, etc – just something to plink with, maybe teach my wife how to shoot. I know the Ruger is a little pricier, but Black Friday / Cyber Monday may present some deals too good to pass up.

    I thought about the Wrangler, single-action would be fun, but think I’ll save that for next year.

    I own both, a 22/25 Tactical Mark IV and a stock Buckmark Camper UX. I like the Mark IV slightly more, for its easier take down, and its accessories. But I really have to slam the mags in hard to get the ammo to feed into the chamber.

    The Buckmark doesn’t require anywhere near that kind of force . . . but it also basically doesn’t have a ‘take down’ The manual simply states to scrub the action area with a brush and solvent.

    Metric ton of different skus are available for each though, so you really have a LOT of options.

    Agreed with some others here, the Buckmark has the better stock trigger. And my Buckmark has a better stock grip as well. But the Ruger is infinitely more customizable and SUPER easy to take down.

    I’m partial to the Ruger but nothing empirical. Gotta be a bigger aftermarket too.

    Ruger is a better gun in every category.

    Can’t go wrong with either as a learner gun though.

    If cost effectiveness is the main issue, look at how much a speed loader and getting to 10 mags difference is between both.

    Or have your wife pick out which one she prefers.

    I have both and the buckmark is a better pistol stock. Much nicer trigger.

    But the ruger has it handily beat in the aftermarket.

    I think my Buckmark shoots better than my Mark IV 22/45. However I have a Volquartzen trigger and accurrizing kit waiting to be installed in the Ruger, so my opinion could change.
