Comparing my Mark III to my Mark IV 22/45



Log in to see fewer ads
Today I went to the range to compare my Ruger 22/45 Mark III Target to my new Mark IV 22/45 Lite.

The Mark III has a Volquartsen Kit in it already and Iím very happy with the trigger at 2 lbs. The Mark IV is stock and has a horrible trigger set at 5 lbs 14 oz. I have ordered a VQ Kit for it and am anxiously waiting for it to arrive.

I fired 100 rounds of CCI-Mini Mags through the Mark III and all worked flawlessly. Same with the 100 Mini Mags through the Mark IV. Biggest difference is the trigger. I just canít seem to control the heavier trigger on the Mark IV and had a hard time keeping all shots on target.

Reliability goes to the Mark IV. Iíve shot over 3000 rounds without a hiccup. The Mark III is working pretty good but when I switched to my backup ammo of Federal Auto Match I had two jams while firing 200 rounds.

Iím sure that after I do the trigger work on the Mark IV I will really enjoy it but for now my matches are going to be shot with the Mark III.

Groups with the Mark III were so much better.

I would agree with you on that. I have not touched my Lite or Target trigger pulls. The Lite is 1 pound liter than my Target pull. The Lite groups better than the Target. Not by much but when you add the numbers up, it shows.
