    I visited a local firing range today for the first time. The operators had a year old Browning 22 Buck Mark Camper. It would pobably rate a 95 to 98%. It has the original case and paperwork. It came with 1,050 rounds of Remington HP; 150 rounds of CCI Blazer; a nylon holster; three clips; a two gun lockable pistol case; and a RedHead 1X25 Red Dot scope. Their asking price was $350. I paid $300 OTD. :)

    I'm really pleased with it but know very little about used gun prices. I looked in several gunshops and pawn shops today. Everything seems way over priced in relation to prices I see on gun auction sights and the only other "reasonable" price I saw was a basic used Heritage RR for $110. One gunshop had a used 22 revolver by some German firm I'd never heard of before. The cylinder had a lot of play and the grips were loose and had lots of wear. His price was $199. and he seemed genuinely offended when I suggested he was asking too much.

    The Camper is going for $250-$275 new in many places. This is for a pistol and one mag. The mags will run you about $22-$25 each. The ammo you got was worth about $20-$25. The case you got was worth about $20. I couldn't tell you about the scope. So, you got $350 to $400 worth of stuff for $300. Not a smoking deal, but a relatively fair deal!!

    I did a little research on the scope. RedHead is apparently a brand name of Bass Pro Shops. The scope iis called a Deluxe Red Dot scope, (Part No. 38 885 404 00), and retails for $89.99. Unfortunately I didn't get an Owner's Manual for it. I've e-mailed Customer Support at Bass Pro and asked about the possibility of getting one.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Similar story

    I bought one from a guy at a public range a couple of years ago. You will be amazed at the accuracy of the Buckmark. Look around your area for a steel match. They're a good competition venue for your new .22
