I'm with Brent. Mine is tight.



Plenty accurate. Ten rounds at 25 yards in my , less than steady, hands.

I handled one and it was tight. Not any perceivable wiggle. I gave it a good back and forth. I thought the underlug design would prevent any wiggle. By design, when new and right. As other said it is like a break open shot gun. The photo above shows the two pins but the locking underlug is barely visible in the pictures. I hope this is going to be ok.

I think, then, if there is any doubt at all, a person can purchase from an LGS and give up the few pennies saved online.

I tried it with a side to side rocking movement, was very noticeable, I would not purchase one unless the fit was tight. Does anyone remember all the posts about the earlier MK's that had became loose and folks were asking how to tighten them? Maybe something was loose that could be easily repaired ,maybe not in any event Ruger needs to address this as I have read elsewhere about this same issue.

I certainly remember SOME posts concerning the developing looseness of the upper to lower assembly in the pre-Mark IV pistols, and I've also posted a remedy to help prevent that looseness from developing. I don't recall the looseness issue getting to the "pandemic" phase though.
The loosening up of the upper to the lower is primarily an "owner" inflicted cause, done by rubbing the raw metal of the upper onto the lower during dis and then re assembly, and not using some form of anti-seize compound, or at the very least, a good grease.

In any event, the looseness between the upper and the lower on the earlier Ruger Mark pistols can be corrected quite easily, but it seems the posts instructing how that's done, are over-looked by some.
