That is some variation of a Browning Buckmark pistol in .22LR. As to the exact model, I can be of NO HELP (needed to determine value--it DOES have an adjustable rear sight which is good). Someone should be along to give you a more complete answer. It would help to post a pic of the end label of the box if possible........

It should be a buck mark camper, 5 inch barrel. It looks like it has been around awhile but they have been making the buck marks for decades, i believe 50's or earlier. its a great 22 for plinking and very reliable. The new versions of this i have seen for around 350 dollars. I just bought a browning buck mark hunter, has a 7 in barrel, a little bit ago and that was 450. if it has any special value i do not know but there are websites just for the buck mark enthusiasts out there if you care to look.

Agreed, it's a form of Buckmark. Try looking up the serial number for more information here: Browning Date Your Firearm - Buck Mark .22 Caliber Pistol

Let us know what you find!

No markings on the box except browning..all I can find is it's a first model challenger but nobody has anything other than that?

You're right, it's a first model Challenger. These were made from '62-'75 according to Fjestad's Blue Book of Firearms. This series also included the Nomad (economy model) and Medalist (target model).

Those were replaced with the Challenger II/III/Buckmark series.

Your gun is much more valuable, at least to collectors.

Looks to me like a Nomad or Challenger from the 1960s?
