I'm looking to get a buckmark target 7in. model
To those that have one or the other which grip do you like better?
Which would you pick?
They are very similar but just looking for some input from those that have owned or shot these.
Also any recommendations on holsters would be appreciated
Thanks

Look at this one, (sorry NO pics, but here is the information):

Product Code: 051361490
Its a "Classic Plus SE", with rosewoood (laminate) Pro Target Grips,
and a Tru-Glo Marble (green) front sight, with a 5.5" bull barrel.

*FootNote: was sold exclusively through Browning Medallion Dealers,
as a special run.

Fuel For Thought-
FWIW: Stay away from the Browning Buckmark Camper Models, as
they have a plastic sight base that will crack at the rear over time.
Try to decide on a Buckmark model with a metal sight base~!

I like the one with the more "normal" grip. The nickel finish and fluted barrel look nice. Take the advice on the camper model.

For my paws, the URX factory rubber grip on the Buckmark is tops, feels so good and points so well, better than any Hogue that I've held or even the great Taurus "ribber" grip. It's almost a shame that the .22 doesn't make much recoil for that grip to soak up.

The nickel finish and fluted barrel look nice.
Very pretty!

Either Buckmark should shoot fine. For a true target pistol I have this one:

It's not a 7" but it shoots like one. I prefer the UDX series models with the finger grooves and arch made into the grip frame. The "Damascus" pattern on the slab side barrel is just gravy.
