Need help deciding between a Ruger Mark 3 and a Browning Buckmark


I've got it narrowed down to these two, can someone help me decide? I'm partial to the Browning but I go back and forth.

Can't go wrong with either one.

Get whichever one feels best to you.

Hell, flip a coin.

If it was Mark 2 vs Browning, then Mark 2. Otherwise, a coin toss...

Mark 3 has chambered round indicator and the magazine safety disconnect. I'm not a fan of either.

I do love the looks of this Ruger though

Magazine disconnect can be disabled.

Mark 3 gets my vote. Much better aftermarket support.

Buckmark - for the discriminating plinker.

Ruger, but it's close.

It's what I'll be getting in 12 to 18 months.

I have this and am VERY happy. Don't need a .22 rifle.

Ok, shoulda said I don't REALLY need a rifle. Most stuff I'd shoot with a rifle, I shoot with my pistola cause thats whats with me.

I use a rifle to hunt squirrels and use the pistol for most everything else.
