The Umarex Browning Buckmark is a low cost but adequate break barrel pistol. The only real complaint from reviewers is the harsh trigger.
Ace did a great job of reducing trigger pull/weight (and some other tweaks) making this a decent short range target pistol.

I was shooting indoors at 10M last week end and pellets were barely making it to the target...

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Rated at 320 FPS, I bought this for 18 feet distance where it is excellent.

I know but 10M is not very far. I mean I could trow a rock that far with about the same accuracy as that gun.
It's great for plinking cans at 15 feet but not much else.
It's easy to cock and use but a bit deceiving in terms of performance.

You maybe asking to much of it. I don’t think that the Buckmark is a 10m gun. Several blowback action pistol are in the 320fps range and also take forever for the B.B. to hit the target. No I’m not comparing pellet gun with B.B. guns... but fps to fps 320 will not do much good at 10m.

That being said your Buckmark may be a dud? I did a trigger mod on mine, put some Teflon tape on the inside barrel tip, added some weight to it and cleaned the barrel. I got this 3/4in grouping at 18 feet. At 10m it opened up to about 2 inches. So it’s a short range gun but I really liked mine.

IMO, This gun is just too weak in power...

I use duct tape on the duct seal back trap and put sticky targets on it. And from about 9 yards away, pellets from the gun looks a bit difficult to penetrate through two layers of duct tape... Or say it can get it through, but no more power afterwards to bury the pellet into the duct seal as I can hear the pellet fall down to the bottom of my trap box...

hey yy I figured when you said you were ordering one that you wouldn,t care for it to much. I got one awhile back and after using it I called it the browning miss the mark buckmark and said I could probably throw the bbs faster-- harder and straighter. I still shoot it a bit in winter while the co2 guns are sleeping. I put a reflex site on it and only have about 18 or 19 feet to shoot. so it,s not to bad.
