I want to put together an accurate, suppressed .22 auto. For people who have had both, which would typically be more accurate - Browning Buckmark or Ruger 22/45?

ford/chevy argument... I have/had both.. preferred the browning buckmark camper because it "felt" better.. had a 4.5' bbl... the 22-45 had a 3".i don't care for the grip. I prefer the ruger standards, mk1, 2's, or 3's,, as far as feel... but none are factory threaded,, the buckmark camper is..


go big or go home ........

Ruger! Hands down, 22/45 MKIV But I prefer the steel model over the light versions.

The MarkIv is beyond cool! Great design.

Old Bill Ruger is up there in gun heaven thinking "man! Why didn't I come up with that"!

I have a SSK MkIII Ruger with integral suppressor. Beautiful gun. Unbelievably accurate. Have taken over 400 groundhogs with it the last 4 years, longest being 101 yds. , all with Rem. 38 gr. subsonics. I've never regretted getting it.

I guess I will pile on the Ruger bandwagon. I won a 22/45 probably 20 years ago. I wasn't that impressed with them at the time (preferred the Luger-like look of the standard MkIII). But I'd won it, so it was free. I shot it, and it was very accurate. Plus heavy enough to be easy to shoot well. Reliable. I love the gun.

Bought one of the new LITE versions. They're pre-threaded. I like it too. Probably just as mechanically accurate, but light enough that I don't shoot it quite as well. Still really like it. And the new design is way easier to take down and put back together. Anway, both are great guns. Highly recommend.

I too, have both. I prefer the Browning Buckmark. Just my own preference. Others have theirs.

Does anyone know of a source of custom barrels either platform? Right now I just want something pre-threaded, but down the road a 1:8 barrel would be ideal.

Can't go wrong with either. I also have a Ruger Wrangler and the Ruger SR22 and they have both been great as well. I love .22's

I have a lightweight Ruger 22/45 as a suppressor host gun.

I like the gun. Works reliably. Reasonably accurate. Not as accurate as a SW41, but I don’t regret it. I do like it better than the Browning Buckmark .22 I shot quite a bit- buddy’s gun- but his does’t have a suppressor or threaded to accept mine, so no experience with that part.

Sorry man, with only one post and pushing products from Kalifornia. I won't buy from that state unless it is the only option. Others can do what they want. Be Well, Packy.

Either choice is excellent. Check out Turnbull Restoration for some they have done up very nicely
