Ruger Mark IV

Post by quazi » Thu Sep 22, 2016 10:26 pm

Ruger came out with a new model in their Mk series of .22 LR semi-auto pistols. LINK

This one has a push-button take down and is supposed to be much easier to disassemble and reassemble. The video on Ruger's website makes it took really easy and fast.

I've always shot the Ruger Mk series well, so I'm definitely interested.

That's pretty neat.

Hopefully a 22/45 version isn't too far behind the others.

I was just thinking about getting a Browning Buckmark over the MK3 and Smith Victory...

The plot thickens, thanks Quazi for making my wallet itch...

Thanks for posting this. I just saw the MK IV at the NRA site and was intrigued by it.

Anyone actually laid eyes on it? It is obviously a radical redesign of a tried and true pistol (albeit one that is a PITA to disassemble). I would be reluctant to buy one right away for that reason. Still it sure looks like a clever design.

I've handled the Hunter and stainless Target . These are going to get some attention .

I was at the Ruger plant in Prescott AZ this past Saturday & I got to handle a couple of them.

I really like what they did with this new design. Comes apart easy, locks up tight.
My assessment is that it will be a very reliable and accurate shooter.

Any word on when these are supposed to hit stores and what the end price will be ?

Also, did Ruger have to redesign the mags or will the Mark 2 and 3 mags work in them ?

Older magazines are supposed to work in the new Mark IV pistols.

I haven't seen what the street price will be.

If that's the case, I'm going to try and order one as soon as I can. If they make a 22/45 version, I am definitely getting one.

ETA: According to a few sites that are talking about the new Rugers, the release date is supposed to be sometime in the middle of October.

All I'm seeing so far in regards to these guns is the Target and Hunter models. Hopefully a 22/45 version isn't too far behind since these guns are going to probably sell very well.
