Flavors of Buckmark

I am thinking of buying a Buckmark .22 if I can find something I like. There seems to be a lot of models available. Can someone tell me what the differences are between:

-- Standard
-- Hunter
-- Contour
-- Plus

I didn't list the Camper because I am familiar with that one. I assume that I have them in ascending order of low end to high end.

My friend has a Buckmark Bullseye with a 7.5" barrel that he bought a long time ago. He let me shoot it -- nice. Unfortunately, they don't make those anymore

I'm not sure of the differences between the models. Internally they're probably all the same. I bought my variation because of the FO front sight and it's two-tone apprearance. What a fun shooter. Here she is:

Very nice. Which model is it? Is that a 5.5 or 7.5 barrel?

It's a 5.5. I've had it for probably five or six years now. It's a 'Buckmark Plus Stainless Black Laminated UDX' That's a mouthful.

I have a 5.5" Stainless Camper URX with the FO front sight. Love it.

Just saw the last part of the OP.

I've also got the same stainless Camper URX as millertyme. My wife loves shooting it - says that URX grip fits like a glove.

First handgun I ever bought and it is still the one I shoot the very best.

They're all the same internally. You're really just buying for looks after you go above Camper level.

I like the Buck Mark Contour 7.25 URX. For shooting with iron sights - I like the longer sight radius.

I want to "upgrade" my camper urx with a tactical solutions short barrel. I like the idea of the short barrel and lightweight for packing around the ranch all day.

I have 2 URX's. One threaded, one not. One 4", one 5.5. Love them both. Thought about getting a 7.5" barrel just for variety.

The URX grips fit me better than some of the other versions.
