I have a feeling these are going to sell really well, so aftermarket items like those you mentioned would be a great money maker for whoever is willing and able to make them. In other words, THEY WOULD BE NUTS NOT TO JUMP ON THIS!!!

I call that a huge improvement.....if the pistol shoots as accurately as the old ones. Never had trouble taking one down......now that putting them back together part....has something to do with the stars being in the right alignment. LCI gone....good. I just sold my MKIII target a few months ago...got what I paid for it....will have to look into the MK IV. Now if only Ruger did it right....all of it. M1911

They removed the Loaded Chamber Indicator. That is very nice.

The bolt release is back to MkII lever vs the button.

One review says the trigger was improved, although heavy had a cleaner and consistent break. Maybe only need a spring.

I dont find it necessary to strip the MkIII to clean, but it might be a lot easier to work on for stuff like trigger mods or inspection. Not just cleaning.

One potential problem is Ruger "improved" the magazine cut off. That might be an attempt to make this more difficult to disable, or the improved trigger means it will not be necessary.

I wonder if the guns will all lock up nice and tight or if the fit will vary as it seems to on the MkI,II,III. I mean the upper to lower fit can vary from fairly lose to hammer needed. I suggest a prudent person will give this new gun a year to get the bugs out.

The sad part is they have discontinued all the MKIII series , no one could answer about the mag swap, but I guess that tells me it is swappable, I was worried about that.

The hunters were released first, I was told I could get the other target models as early as Fri, maybe Monday, depends on how the shipment were processed.
from ruger today showing the new MK IV.

According to the website there's a 7/8 ounce difference between the Aluminium frame and the two stainless options. I'd be curious to see if there are any long term wear issues with the former and repeated take downs and cleaning.

So, folks are going to buy a new gun just because it's easier to take apart?

Think I'll follow Forebore's advice & wait for the exterminator.

I am sure the MKIV is going to be a great selling handgun. I for one am not going to buy one. I have 8 Ruger auto's and don't need another. The MKIV will be great for someone who has a fear of taking the older ones apart and putting them back together.

Looks like there's another contest for another "new unannounced product" (I'm guessing it's the Mk 4 22/45 version). They ask again for FFL info so a firearm of some sort. In any event, good to see Ruger taking the initiative.

Having been paid to put some of these back together, I think that I can confidently say yes. That and the fact that it remains a highly desirable gun only increases the likelihood that those with and without the mechanical ability to disassemble and reassemble the gun will purchase it. Personally, I did not like the MKIII. Had I found a nice MKII like the one I used to have, I "would" have bought it. I say would because who wouldn't want the added ease of the disassembly/ reassembly process with the new MKIV?
