I've found a buckmark silhouette in nice shape, what's the most I should offer this person for it? I've never fired one but I've seen alot of other people shoot some nice scores with them and I'm pretty sure that I want this one for production. What should I do? Donzov #56499

Donzov,
Heres is what I do. I check on the ole computer for any websites sell the gun in question. I also go to gun auction sites like GunBroker.com and see what they are selling for there. I also check with any local shops for prices new and used.
From there I make a judgement call on what to offer for the gun. I used to use catalogs for this but the computer makes it a little easier. Guns go for different prices all over the country. Some are more popular in different states and that can make a big difference too.
I know of a buckmark silhouette here that just sold for $400. It had a trigger job and other than that it was all standard.
Hope this helps. I checked on GB and there is a silhouette model on there for sale starting bid of 250 with no reserve. The 5.5" target model starts out between 430 and 450. Since the silhouette model is mostly used by us, you might find a good deal. Check out the one I was talking about and use it for a reference for the one you are looking at.

If the gun is the silhouette version with a 10" bbl and the wood forend, grab it! They don't catalog them anymore so they command a premium but are great shooters and worth it. $400 wouldn't be unreasonable for a silhouette model.

Well, I went on gunbroker to check on the one you mentioned and found that they had two of them. One with the forend and no sight hoods and one just like the one I spoke of but it was a bit nicer with all the goodies, the box, case deflector, manual and two magazines. I liked it so much that I registered for gunbroker and contacted the seller to get more info. He said it had only been used for plinking and very little of it. I also contacted the seller of the one with the forend and he used his alot for short range varmint control.
I ended up buying the one without the forend for 305.00, the one with the forend went for 355.00.
Now I wonder if browning made two different guns and did I get the better of the two.
So is there a difference? The one I bought has a adjustable trigger and the other stuff, but no forend, is it a different gun altogether or just a version without the forend?

I bought the one for 305.00 and found a forend at brownells.
These guns are incredible, after sighting it in (it even came with a tool for adjusting the front sight) I haven't missed anything I've shot at. I even shot a 35 useing my SB swingers and it was only 30 degrees out.
So I'm going to have a great year in SB.

Looks like you got a great deal! Mine was $289 new in 1991. You are correct, it is the same gun. Browning marketed it with sights and forend as the Silhouette model, and without sights or forend, it became the Varmint model. These are very accurate guns...a ton of perfect scores have been shot with them. One of our shooters gets more Production 40's with his Browning than Unlimited 40's with his Anschutz!

Hey Guys,

I noticed your thread and thought I'd add my experiences. I used to shoot ground squirrels A LOT in California. I longed for an accurate .22 pistol that had some heft to resist the breeze and a flat bottomed forend. I found one in the Buckmark. This is absolutely the most shootable gun I have ever used. Without seeing a picture, I ordered a brand new 14 inch barreled Silhouette model in 1998 based on the description in a dealer's catalog. When it arrived I knew I had done the right thing. I paid around $460 (about $515 out the door). It sounds like I might have paid a little too much from reading the comments in this thread, but it was new and I had to have it. I've been using it just at the range once in a while because I don't have too many ground squirrels where I live now. The gun has shot about 3 to 4 cartons (2000 rounds tops) and now has a Burris 2 -7x 32mm AO scope to take advantage of it's abilities. The trigger is a dream. I like this gun so much that when I decided to get a "smaller" .22 pistol (since this one is really just a young rifle) I settled on a used Buckmark Varmint model listed on Auction Arms. That is, I think it's a Varmint model. It does have the 9 7/8 inch barrel but it also has a forend. The Varmint model shown in one of my old Gun Digests has the same barrel but no forend. This one shoots probably just as well as the first gun but I have not installed a scope on it. I may put a red dot on it some day. Anyway, you can't go wrong using a Buckmark.
