Top 5 Best Sight For Browning Buckmark – Reviews & Buying Guide

Browning Buckmark is a semi-automatic pistol made for .22 rifle cartridge. It was first made in 1985. Since then, Browning arms company has been making this for years. The performance difference between what we had in that year and what we have here is massive.

Back then, there weren’t many sights for pistol available. Browning Buckmark is something that will benefit a lot from a good sight. The power on this pistol is quite good and the accuracy is insanely high.

Why not make it even deadlier by adding a sight on top of it? Luckily, Buckmark supports a lot of sight with different height and size. Let’s get to know some of those and find out which one is the best for your Browning Buckmark.

How To Choose A Sight For Browning Buckmark?

Build Quality: Buckmark can use heavy sights. Full size red dots are supported by this excellent piece of machinery. You need to find a sight that can take hits of the recoil of Buckmark and won’t be destroyed from light rain.

Lens Quality: As red dot uses a fully-fledged lens, you will need to look for lenses that are coated and quite bright. You don’t want a dark tinted lens that will hinder your performance.

Eye Relief: Reflex sights tend to have unlimited eye relief. But some red dot sights may have a limited eye relief. Don’t go for those ones. They are not suitable for pistol users.

Brightness: Brightness is super important for both reflex and nigh sights. It will determine how well the sight performs during the night. As we are not featuring any laser sights, you should look for a sight on the list that performs well during the night. Spoiler alert, all of them performs exceptionally well during the night.

3. Burris FastFire III Reflex Red Dot Sight

Burris-FastFire-Reflex-Red-Dot-Sight

It’s honestly surprising just how many red dot supports Browning Buckmark. You would be thinking finding Browning red dot sights would be hard. Who would have thought that it would be a piece of cake? Well technically not a piece of cake but you know what I mean.

(+) Build Quality

Like the rest of the sights for Buckmark on the list, this one is also constructed from high quality metal. You can hear a slight ping when you hit the sight with something. The rail is quite hollow but it’s durable. Dropping from chest height had no problem on the sight.

(+) Lens Quality

It’s nice to see sights like this using fully multi-coated lens. Despite only one lens, they are not cutting corners there. I mean, it would be weird of the lens wasn’t good, right?

Yeah, it would be. But hey, the lens here is spot on and the unlimited eye relief makes it super good as well.

(+) Reticles

This sight is available in total 3 configuration. All of them are Red dots. But the MOA size is different in each of them. The one we have here is the 8 MOA dot. I love the huge red dot in the middle of the sight. It helps me understand the bullseye better. If you prefer a smaller red dot, be my guest. Take the one that you prefer.

4. Sightmark Mini Shot M-Spec Reflex Sight

Sightmark-Mini-Shot-M-Spec-Reflex-Sight

Sightmark is not as big as Vortex but they are equally as good. We have featured their riflescopes before. But this is not a riflescope. I mean, it’s not your fantasy Sci-Fi game. You just cannot use a riflescope on top of the Buckmark. I mean, maybe you can hacksaw it. But why? Jokes aside, this sight is incredible for a gun like Buckmark.

One thing that you guys probably noticed by now is all of them are reverse rail sight for Browning Buckmark. None of them are sitting at the front like night sights or laser sights for Browning Buckmark. In my opinion, these red dots are far better than laser sight for Browning.

(+) Build Quality

The build quality on this sight is quite good. There is an engraved gap on the front side of the sight where the lens stays in. It’s a well enclosed from dust and water. The lens is waterproof and the lens is coated with anti-dust and residue coatings.

(+) Available In Two Colors And Two Configurations

You can buy this in black or brown and FMS or LQD mount configuration. You don’t need to buy a different sight if you are a left-hand shooter. With the press of one button, you can easily switch from left to right hand shooting position. That’s a huge advantage.

(+) Riser Mount

If you are tired of the sight sitting flushed with the rail on your gun, you can use the riser rail to increase the height of the sight. To be honest, that was mainly aimed towards rifle users, not pistol users. You would have no use of an elevated sight on top of a pistol.

(-) Keep That In Mind

You will need a battery to power up this sight. The battery included will last for you a long time. But keeping track of batteries is a good idea.


5. AT3 Tactical RD-50 Micro Reflex Red Dot Sight

AT3-Tactical-RD-50-Micro-Reflex-Red-Dot-Sight

The last red dot sight on our list for Browning Buckmark is from AT3. It’s a tactical red dot sight mainly made for rifles but works with pistol as well. It will make your pistol look bigger than it is and add a character to the gun.

(+) Build Quality

The best part about this rifle sights that support pistol is the construction. As they are made with rifles in mind, they need to make the sight durable. Otherwise, you might face issues while rapid firing with a rifle while this sight sits on the rail. No one wants that, that’s why manufacturers works their butt off to make good sights.

The build quality on this is incredible. It’s made out of aluminum. Good quality aluminum all around. The sight is also water and shockproof. As water can’t get inside, there won’t be any moisture. Making it fog proof as well.

(+) Incredible Battery Life

The battery life on this is beyond insane. Up to 50k hours of battery life on low brightness configuration. You can squeeze out a good performance with max brightness as well. But the sight gets quite bright. You don’t need to use max brightness always.

(+) Highly Adjustable

There are quite a few adjustments present in this sight. You can tune them in without tools while shooting as well. The stock configuration might not be suitable for Browning Buckmark. I highly recommend tuning it in according to your needs.

(-) 2 MOA Red Dot

The reticle here is fixed and you are stuck with it. If you don’t like 2MOA red dot, then you might want to skip on this one.
