any ruger 40107 reports? or buckmark?

Post by Merick on 7/9/2018, 3:09 pm

First topic message reminder :

Having given up on my 22 1911 top end I'd like a bullseye capable 22. 

What is the scoop on the Ruger 40107?  Or is there a better way to get started?

I have the Hunter model. The field Target are also neat. Those two have the same grips as standard and the Nills grips will fit. If you want lighter models or have smaller hands the current production is right here.

Chris,  I'm pretty sure you told me in 2012 that I had too many pistols. I believe my answer to you at the time was that I was a lot older then you. I think your catching up fast. lol!

Hey Chris,
How would you go about finding out if your bolt needed to be trued on your Ruger?

Indicate it and bolt face. Check headspacing. l also noticed the barrel has like no crown on it. Could shoot great as is but will do work as needed.

I cannot figure out how to post a picture but I have the Ruger Mark IV Competition model.  I sent it to Majestik Arms for trigger and accuracy work. 

It is not the 22/45 frame style but it is all stainless steel.  It is also not at all what one would consider too light for target work.

I made master with my wife's borrowed buckmark after i disposed of my piece of garbage model 41 from the early 90s. The BM shoots 870s+ if you can. It was called the 5.5 pro target at the time. People say it's too light for a serious bullseye gun but I never felt that way, and nether did my scores.
+1

I have a stock 1990 Buckmark Target 5.5, and it shoots Master-level scores when I do my part (last week 573/600, this week 568/600, but the gun is capable of better than that, my slow-fire needs work... the gun is definitely capable of consistently shooting 96+ slowfire scores and, of course, 100's in timed and rapid).

My son's 2016 Buckmark Hunter shoots just as well, with two modifications... removed the magazine disconnector wire and replaced the stock sear spring with the now-unobtanium silhouette sear spring.  The trigger on the Hunter barely makes weight (it's right at 2lbs).  One note about the Hunter... if you want to mount an UltraDot MatchDot II on it, you have to either buy different rings, or file down the provided rings, because it just barely doesn't quite fit.  Once mounted, it works great, though.

As for the current models, the Field Target and Hunter have the standard/UFX grip frame, which is the largest Buckmark grip frame (there are 3 different ones), and has the most aftermarket grips available.  If you have large hands, that's the grip frame you want.  The Contour model also has a top rail, but has a different grip frame, the URX grip frame.  The URX grip frame is smaller, and usually has rubbery one-piece grips with molded-in finger grooves that wrap around the front strap, but two-piece grips are available if you have really small hands.  The third Buckmark grip frame is the UDX grip frame, which is mid-sized and has shallow finger grooves machined into the metal of the front strap.  Only a few aftermarket grips fit the URX or UDX frames.  Also note that Browning is currently in the process of transitioning Buckmark rails from Weaver-style to Picatinny-style, so if you have a preference, you need to look closely at the rails (as of 2018, it may be that only the Hunter rail is still Weaver-style).  There's not much difference between the models as far as accuracy or the trigger goes, since they all use the same action and people report ~1" groups at 25 yards when rested on a sandbag, from most models.  Since the Silhouette sear spring is no longer available, there are other things you can do to the sear spring instead (to reduce trigger pull weight), such as flipping it or manually unwinding a little.

If you don't mind picking up an older model, there are a couple of possible advantages to be had.  The older Target and Silhouette models came with the lighter (and slightly adjustable) Silhouette sear spring, giving a lighter (and slightly adjustable) trigger pull weight.  Also, since ??? (maybe 2005-ish), the magazine disconnector wire was added to all models.  This wire prevents the trigger from firing the gun when there is no magazine inserted.  However, it also usually drags on the disconnector, reducing the quality of the trigger pull.  Many Buckmarks have "lost" this part upon reassembly, but if you want to keep it, I'm sure a little work on it could minimize the interference with the trigger pull without disabling it's function.

Disassembly and reassembly of Buckmarks gets mixed reviews... once you've done it a couple times, it's really not bad, but there are a few steps that are non-intuitive or easy to do wrong, so people do report issues.  I put together some very detailed Buckmark disassembly and reassembly steps on my website (at those links), for people who would like some guidance.  I also have a page with general Buckmark information, like parts, accessories, manuals, etc. at http://guns.dsttr.com/Buckmark.html
