Need help on a target pistol

Just got a sales flyer from Bass Pro Shops. There is a Browning Buck Mark Camper UFX ( 22 LR ) for sale for $ 339.97. I'll be using it for my grandkids as a learning tool. I know nothing of the pistol; anybody here have any knowledge/ experience with one? The gun club I belong to will only permit striker fired pistols for the youngster's gun team.

I've got a Camper URX in stainless, and really like it. Thousands of rounds through it, without a single hiccup, and pretty accurate. The difference between the UFX and URX is in the grip.
I got mine from Academy 2-3 years ago for $300 on sale.

If I understand your post to mean you're looking for a striker fired pistol, a Buck Mark is not striker fired. It has an internal hammer.

the only experience i have is with the buckmark standard.......

i found the gun to have a decent trigger and sight picture and was reliable and accurate. I preferred the Browning over the Ruger in our hunter/pistol matches when i used an auto......that is more personal preference than a knock on ruger.

main complaint was the gun only came with one magazine.

I too had a Browning Buckmark and it was truly a fine shooter.
It was easy to clean too.
I got out of the 22 caliber guns and ammo.
I really hated to see it go though.

Not sure on that striker-fired requirement. Could you elaborate? Why striker-fired? How are they defining striker-fired? True striker-fired pistols like Glocks have no hammer at all, but other semi autos like Sigs and Berettas have a striker pin that is hit with a hammer. Do they consider them striker-fired? The reason I ask is that it will be very difficult to find a true striker fired, no hammer 22 LR pistol. Even the 22 LR copies of popular striker fired centerfires have a hammer. 22 LRs typically need a hammer blow to reliably ignite.
