In the last few days I have seen about 4 or 5 Mark IV Hunter models trickle into Davidson's. They were promptly bought within minutes. I clicked on the Gun Genie and got a price of $539.00 for the Hunter Model, from a local dealer here I've done a lot of business with.

So the bottom line is they're coming in. They are not "Allocated". (At least not yet). And the price appears to be excellent for a new model that's in high demand. As I mentioned, I'm going to wait like I did with my Ruger SR-1911 before I take the bait and buy. If after 6 months or so, if the fever has died down, and there aren't any problems or recalls, I'll take the plunge. It will for sure be a Hunter. I like the Stainless Steel frame, and the wood grips. No Aluminum or plastic.

Has it been determined, by anyone who owns one, if the internals are the same as the MK III (minus the new mainspring housing of course)?

The Mk4 I can wait on. But if there are some killer deals on Mk3 steel frames, I'm very likely to pick one up.

From one of the numerous videos, the bolt appears the same, but the trigger group is totally new. Cannot just drop in a Mk III kit and improve it.

Thanks, that was my assessment also.

Lots of parts too.....lots of parts. See the links at RugerFirearm that show exploded view MI III and MK IV. You can see each in the owners manual...I think page 33 for the MK IV......IIRC. M1911

I checked on Davidson's "Gun Genie" this morning. And they are now showing all versions of the Ruger Mark IV to be "Allocated". (i.e. very hard to get). My guess is this will remain for a while. You will still be able to find them. But they won't be cheap, and you'll have to chase them down.

I bought my first MK3 about two years ago. Guess it'll be about 10 years before I buy a MK4.

I had the opportunity to handle a new MKIV Hunter in a gun shop today . It looks and feels great in my hands . It was the last of 5 they received and was told they went this past week after just getting them in stock last Friday . They are priced at $649.95 at this independent shop . I think I will wait and see how the new models perform for a while before I buy one .

That is the smart move EJK. I no longer have any desire to be a Beta Tester.
Did you check for tightness of fit-Upper to lower ? I do wonder about that.

I just got the Hunter MK IV. The upper and lower are tight. No movement between parts and everything looks well thought out. I'm not going to lose any sleep worrying about the new design or being a "Beta Tester".

Beautiful gun Brent! I wouldn't even worry about any "looseness" between the upper and the lower. Even if it did get slightly loose, it's not going to effect accuracy. The AR-15 platform has these issues, and it's one of the most accurate semi auto rifle platforms out there. Plus it's a .22 L.R. All but recoilless.

Took my Mark iv hunter out for the first time an hour ago. 120 rounds of federal auto match. 1 fte and 2 didn't strike the round?????? Never had that happen before. Overall I love this gun and plan and on sending a few hundred more rounds down range tomorrow. Mine shoots high even with the rear sight bottomed out and a 6 o clock hold. I'm going to shim the front sight tonight. The trigger is definitely different. It's a tad better than the Mark iii. It's a longer pull, much more consistent, but it's heavier than 22 plinkster says. I'll give some more thoughts after I put more rounds through it tomorrow.
