I will be buying one, just waiting to see what all of the model offerings will be. I saw and handled two different models of the MK IV at a gunshow Saturday.

If you are truly a first class masochist, get into mil-surp rifles and score yourself a M-1904 Portuguese Verguiero (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauser%E2%80%93Vergueiro).

An enticing combination of Mauser and Mannlicher, the bolt is an absolute thrill of mechanical nonsensibility and frustration. Get it apart and you will spend untold happy hours trying to get it back together again.............. that is, unless the explosive spring pressure didn't allow half the bolt parts to disappear into Harry Potter land upon being freed during takedown. Ah, the minds of man during bursts of inventiveness..........

My first handgun

I remember many years ago buying my very first handgun.
It was a .22 Ruger Mk 1 that I purchased used from a gun store in Toronto.
I took it home and that evening I decided to strip it down for a cleaning
and to lube it.
After several frustrating hours of trying to put it back together, I gave up.
The next day I took all the parts back to the gun store and the owner showed
me how it went back together.
I will never forget my first handgun purchase even after all these many years.
The frustration of attempting reassembly and that the gun store was was located
at 3006 Danforth Avenue in Toronto.

Thumbs up in the future

I always wait to buy a new gun so everyone else discovers if there are problems!! I refuse to be a Q/C subject for a manf! remember the first chiappa m-1 carbines and the Remington R 51?? I wait til all the bugs have been found and corrected.i DO want one, I hope the street price will drop in the future,i know the demand will be high at first and prices will be crazy. wish academy would get them in, they usually have decent prices. I am intrigued with the easy take down,i have hated that aspect of ruger pistols since my first MK I blue target back in the 1970s! I only own a gold LITE now for that reason, I hose it out with gun scrubber and NEVER tear it down. life is to short to deal with it! come on MK IV. I love the ruger LOOK, I was considering the VICTORY since the price is decent, I think I WILL wait and see what happens.

Oh my gosh. Gone will be an era where my friends will consider me a genius because I'd mastered the art of taking down a MKI, II, or III, then actually putting it back together so it will function properly. I'm going to miss all their pleads and bribes for assistance.

Mk IV absolutely will purchase one. Will then purchase the after market products to improve the trigger as well as eliminating the magazine disconnector. Glad to see Ruger responding to their customers.

It is 22lr, so the hinge should only need to handle negligent recoil. Much less than a contender or encore. I clean my MK II thoroughly every thousand rounds or so(shooting several hundred a range trip). Most break-action shotgun hinge pins are not hardened. My understanding is not even all the competition shotguns are hardened and they last a few hundred thousand rounds of 12 GA. The hinge pin isn't a new technology and doesn't seem to be one that is all that difficult to do well.

I wonder if there is "play" between the barrel and the receiver.

If someone can post some pics of the locking mechanism and maybe demonstrate if there is any "play" between upper and lower.

From the photos it appears the recoil will be in a direction opposite the hinge pin, just as in the design of a break-action shotgun.

Popped into Cabela's in Lacey, WA, upon our return from picking (or NOT picking, as it were...) mushrooms in Olympia.



Not a single MkIV to be seen. However, they had a LARGE variety of MkIIIs from which to choose...

Easy to get fixated on that, I guess, but while the ease of takedown is a huge improvement and garnering all the attention it's not the only improvement to the design.

Scroll over to the 2:20 mark on this video.

I have a feeling the Mark IV's are going to be a lot like the Ruger SR-1911 for the first year or so, as far as availability. Simply because everyone and their brother wants one. They'll be "Allocated", (i.e. hard to get), and overpriced. Except for a few small local gun shops. Then after all the hoopla wears off, they'll be everywhere with reduced street prices that are typically Ruger.
