It's not going to sell to the user market but mostly to collectors, so comparison to other pistols is not reasonable.

I dont see any reason to go negative on a such beautiful and tasteful gun or disparage any interested buyers. This is NOT a lot of money for a firearm. The actual cost seem fair enough for what you get.
Sir: Your assessment is "top-notch". We can ONLY hope for a "civil" discussion concerning the Ruger Mark IV and what's currently available, or what isn't as of yet. Nobody guides my decisions but me. If anybody finds fault with what I do, my only recourse is to consider the abhorrent source that provides opposition, and it's normally rejected. There are a very few around RFC whom I consider to be completely "reputable" with their recommendations, and experience with Ruger Mark pistols, of which I've learned to trust, over the 13 years I've been following these forums.
I get a real "hoot" from these one-gun wonders who discover all the solutions to many mundane issues they discover that are involved with the ONLY Ruger Mark pistol they've ever owned. Do I read their posts?, certainly! Should we all believe that that one-gun expert is the messiah we've been waiting for? Well, I know from experience, that RFC members are more savvy than that, and I personally, choose to get my inspiration from testing, trying and using sensible experimentation to evaluate what works and what's BS. Accepting some miracle improvement, without documentation and CLEAR pictures, that provide proof of results, is a flag denoting a "Charliton" of the worst caliber.

I didn't realize, and really don't care, that a knife was involved. I'll most likely just get "squirrel guts" all over the dang thing anyway.

New to. .22, Need advice on ammo.

For the mark IV, I hear, use high velocity so gun cycles better but also heard that will wear the gun out faster. Also, for break in... will that not be to harsh forvthe gun? Does standard velocity work decent in the Ruger? What brands are really good to buy?

My MkIV cycles both standard velocity and high velocity ammo with complete reliability. Shoot what your local store carries and is affordable.

As to high velocity wearing the gun out, maybe it will do so in 150,000 rounds instead of 175,000 rounds that standard velocity will take. It's not a consideration.

Maybe you heard that "hyper velocity" ammo will wear the gun out faster. Not hi-velocity.

Break in with a brick or so of high velocity; after that, HV or SV should work.

I'll bet you're right. I don't as yet have a Ruger Mark IV owners manual to see if they still have the admonition enclosed concerning the avoidance of "hyper velocity" .22 rimfire rounds, mostly CCI Stingers.

It's always good to read where a ~~NEW~~ Ruger Mark pistol arrives and will readily accept .22 rimfire standard velo ammunition. I haven't ever been that lucky, but after exercising the springs through the use of CCI Mini-Mags, the CCI Standard velo, and pretty much all other standard velo .22 rimfire, chamber and cycle just fine. Now, is there an "absolute" number of high velo rounds that once met, the pistol will perform to all expectations? Nope! Every so often during your "break-in" period, try a magazine full of standard velo stuff and see how it does. Once your pistol is there.............it's THERE!

I picked up my Bill Ruger Birthday pistol w/ knife today.

It appears very well made and the knife is tops. It does not come in a presentation case. I like it and I feel it's worth the price. I am not a collector, but I do like good pistols and this one seems to be as well made as I've seen when comparing to my Browning's, High Standard's, Colt's, Smith & Wesson's, ect.

You're so close, they should be able to "walk" it to your house. Congrats, you are now the owner of a very fine version of the Ruger Mark IV. You know............we'll need pictures.

You certainly can't go wrong there. Close to the dealer? I just guessed.

I was just down in Eau Claire last weekend and stopped at Scheel's All Sport. Bought two bricks of CCI Mini-Mags, less than $10.00 for a 100 pack.
