    I have a nice Browning Buckmark Bullseye Target pistol (see: http://www.gunsamerica.com/99031915...wning_Buck_Mark_Bullseye_Target_URX_22_LR.htm ) but I'm lusting after a Hammerli Xesse IPSC pistol (see: http://www.larrysguns.com/Products/...alther-fslsh-Hammerli-spc-Xesse-spc-IPSC.aspx ). Is there any rational reason to sell my Buckmark to purchase the Hammerli? I suspect that I won't shoot it significantly better than the Buckmark (Indian versus the arrow...), but is the Hammerli capable of better accuracy than the Buckmark? I target shoot for my own entertainment, though there is a good bullseye club here locally that is pretty active. Thanks for any input.

    It may be capable of better accuracy than a Buckmark, but probably nothing like the SP20 or a Benelli MP. Isn't that the newer version of the Sig Hammerli Trailside?

    I do have one of the early Trailside long barrelled psitol, pretty accurate, mine has been relatively problem free although a lot of people had issues with these in the eraly days.

    Good trade off

    The Hammerli Xesse has a fine reputation.
    Order a Match Dot from Larry's while you at it. Great Bullseye gun and sight combination..
    You can't use a 22lr in USPSA competition. I wonder if its ok in some form of European IPSC class?

    Bullseye

    You wont find a more accurate 22 than the 71/2" bullseye.
    Mine shoots one hole groups at 15 yds open sights.
    Same at 25 yds with scope mounted.
    Save your money!.
