I already did the review and have the Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX .177 Break Barrel Pellet Pistol in the US Store but now it is also available in the Canada Replica Airguns Store.

The Browning Buck Mark URX has a single stroke super easy cocking mechanism with break barrel action. This pistol shoots 320 FPS and has an automatic safety. The ergonomic ambidextrous grip help the user to feel comfortable while shooting this lightweight pistol. If you own the 22LR version this is a for sure purcahse as it is a dead ringer and will make a great off range practice gun.

Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX Pellet Pistol Table Top & Shooting Review

Type: Pellet air pistol.
Manufacturer: UmarexUSA.
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 pellets.
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 then 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 withe 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 teh 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 effect accuracy down the road when wear appears. But 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.
Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • Not sure if the barrel hinge system 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 can not think of any person that would not enjoy it ;)

Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX - S&W 327 TRR8 - Beretta 90two Update Preview

I've had a lot of requests to review the Umarex Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 and the Umarex Beretta 90two BB CO2 Pistols, perhaps not as many requests for the Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX but the URX has been one I have wanted to get my hands on as I am an owner of a 22LR Browning Buck Mark pistol.

Umarex came through and sent all three of these pistols to me this week for review so now we all get to benefit, I get three new guns added to my collection and my viewers get some new Umarex Product Reviews from me!

I will of course be doing full review of all three Umarex pistols, in this videos I just quickly show you around them all.

In short, The Umarex Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 is very similar to my Dan Wesson Revolvers in most every way but with the Smith & Wesson branding and licensing and a slightly different barrel design. The Umarex Beretta 90two is what I would consider an upgraded Beretta Elite II complete with a working metal slide, full size drop out magazine that holds both the CO2 and 4.5mm BB's and a single and double action trigger.

The Umarex Browning Buck Mark URX is the sleeper of them all in my opinion, even though it is a single shot .177 pellet pistol with fps on the lower side, it is really a joy to shoot with its supper easy to cock break barrel and well balanced grip. Right out of the box I was getting excellent shot placement with it!

Make sure to watch this short Preview video and stay posted for the full review to come out shortly:
