I just recently shot a new model Buckmark and a Ruger II. They both did pretty well but I did notice that the Buckmark was a little more picky about ammo than the Ruger. As far as accuracy goes they both held inside 1/2" at 25 yds in stock config. I prefer the Ruger first off because hot rod parts are a little easier to come by and second because they aren't as picky with ammo. That being said the Browning is still a good choice, just not my personal choice.
