Type:Pellet air pistol Manufacturer:Umarex Model: Browning Buck Mark URX Materials: Metal & plastic construction Weight: 1.5 pounds Barrel: 5.25 inches, metal rifled Propulsion: Spring piston Action: Break barrel, single action only Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellet Ammunition Capacity: 1 pellet FPS: 320fps
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX is not too bad but I feel it is a bit heavier than the claimed 5.75 pounds. In comparison to my real steel 22LR Buck Mark, the trigger is much heavier but then again my 22LR trigger is what I would consider to be near perfection. I was able to work with the trigger as is but found I was expecting the trigger to release earlier than it actually did and I needed to apply just a bit more force than I would have liked to. Even so, with a bit of practice I was able to nail my shots.
Accuracy: Wow is all I can say, you will need to work with the Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX a bit to get used to where the trigger breaks but once you dial it in this airgun is a tac driver. I decided to go with a non-magnified NcSTAR Ultra Compact 1x25 Red/Green Dot Sight and found it worked well with this Buck Mark pellet shooter. From 30 feet out I was able to land 4 shots pretty much right on top of each other and ended up with an under 1 inch 5 shot group, and keep in mind that I was only using a standing but rested stance (non-braced).
Build Quality: Considering the very low price tag for this pellet shooting Buck Mark Replica, I was not expecting it to be as well constructed as it was, there is a decent amount of metal in the URX giving it a nice 1.5 pound heftiness to it and the rubberized grips make this air pistol feel much more expensive than it is. My only concern is the hinge area in the break barrel portion of the gun, once cocked there seems to be some play that could affect accuracy down the road when wear appears. Once locked back into the closed position the play is all but eliminated.
Realism: The Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX is a licensed replica of the actual Browning Buck Mark 22LR semi auto pistol. Umarex did a great job making this break barrel pistol look very close in most ways to the actual Browning Buck Mark URX with the exception of the lever required to cock the spring that is located just under the back of the barrel. The barrel itself is also a tad bit long but I am sure this helps when cocking to get a bit more leverage. When you consider this is a single shot break barrel pellet shooting version, it looks pretty authentic and most importantly it feels very similar to the real 22LR version which makes it a great off range alternative for 22LR Buck Mark owners.
Very decent Browning Buck Mark Replica!
Feels very well built overall for a low cost airgun.
Excellent accuracy once you spend a bit of time with it.
Got much better than claimed fps.
Has a built in rail for an added sight system.
Awesome rubberized grip texture.
Ergonomics are much like the real Buck Mark making this a great off the range substitution for the real 22LR pistol.
Very low price tag.
Not sure if the barrel hingessystem will hold up over time?
Would have liked a metal trigger with a slightly lighter trigger pull to match the real Buck Mark.
Metal barrel wrap would have added the right amount of weight to the front for balance.
Comments: I enjoyed this pistol review very much, this is the type of airgun you find hard to put down because it just performs so well and costs very little to shoot. Being a 22LR Buck Mark owner it was wonderful to see that Umarex made this gun very true to form, at least as much as they could considering the pellet shooting Browning Buck Mark URX is mechanically completely different to the 22LR version. The light cocking effort makes it great for just about anyone and the low recoil helps to keep your shots on target. I would recommend this break barrel pellet shooting Buck Mark replica to everyone. I seriously ca not think of any person that would not enjoy it ;)
Great! Accurate but requires a little practice. The power could be better but it's pretty good because the barrel is 5 inches so more power would certainly make it less accurate. I still got an average of between 300 and 320 fps on my chronograph with 7.2 and 7.5 gr pellets so about 2 to 2.5j of power which is pretty good for this kind of weapon.
I recommend it.

great value air pistol!
I've had my browning buck mark URX for over a year, and have become a crack shot with it.It looks great and is perfect for plinking all day...because of the funnel breach, gamo lead round balls seat nicely and don't roll down the barrel towards the muzzle.I would have preferred velocities above 400 fps.

After watching the review on this site, It convinced me to try it out. This gun amazed me in so many ways and seems sturdy enough to last a lifetime. It's accurate, easy to crank and has a nice rail for a red dot scope. If you are looking for a pellet gun to shoot all day without spending any money on CO2 or having to carry a conventional break barrel riffle; than this is your best purchase. However at 320fps, it's really just for target shooting and cutting through soda cans. I even prefer it to the Benjamin Trail NP which is much heavier and frankly unpractical. In conclusion, just buy it! You won't regret it.

This is the most enjoyable pellet airgun you can find. I have a humble 7 airguns collection and it's the last one I would let go.For my french speaking friends: n'hésitez pas à vous procurer ce Buck Mark URX. Il est parfait. Précis, sans bruit, économique à opérer ... un vrai petit bijou. Je n'ai pas eu d'ajustement à faire, il a été livré avec la mire très précise ce qui est toujours agréable...J'aime prendre mes petits contenants de yougourt comme cibles. Ils sont minces, bougent à chaque touche et ne coûtent rien de pire qu'une bonne santé.Peu importe votre arme .... ne tirez pas sur les animaux ... ils vivent selon leurs besoins, comme nous le faisons ... et si ils nous embêtent parfois, ce n'est qu'être humain que de trouver une façon humaine de les éloigner ...

This is a table top and shooting review combined of the Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX Spring Piston .177 Caliber Air Pistol. I show you around the gun and walk you through its basic operation and handling. I also test the Umarex Browning URX out with my Chrony Chronograph to see what the real world fps velocity actually is and I also shoot it from 30 feet out on a target to see how accurate this target pellet shooter is.
