AND...oboy...they have done away with the LCI and that little button safety!
Still looking fondly at the S&W, tho! But, I'll still live happily with my KMK514.

I believe the Ruger video mentioned that it will use the existing MKIII magazines.

Another forum member mentioned this already.
Is it time for a MKIV sub forum?

Just waiting for someone to take apart the frame and see if the current trigger and sear upgrades will work, love the CNC frame aspect.

Very convenient design and long overdue. I would just hope that repeated removal of the barrel assembly does not lead to worn parts and a loose fit.

Maybe not quite yet, but I do know it's being considered by the Administrator and Moderator.

I actually sat around last night watching TV and taking it apart and reassembling many times, just amazed how easy it was. I guess the market kind of fell apart for used MK 3s.

The Victory will still be a good bang for the buck, although the Mark IV will probably (?) be a better gun.

Myself, I'm sticking to revolvers.
the mag shoots out of the butt with force, KOOL!!

I watched some you tube videos. The you tubes all stress how fast it takes down and none exactly say how it locks.

I think a photo or two with the upper and lower separated might be helpful. The hinged pin is more substantial than the small exterior screws suggest. And how exactly does it lock in the back ?
Edit: The Gun Blast review has some good photos. I guess, it is my problem, I need to see one to really get how they keep it tight.

Sure looks like a world of improvements.

I see a lot of used ar15's on the shelf and the majority have upper/lower connections that have become very loose. The Ruger connections looks similar. If or when I see a Mk IV I will try and understand how these are fitted and what will prevent them from getting loose. I read where SGW is already thinking about this issue.
