Yep that is approaching full custom Volquartsen pistol or Scorpion. Interested to see a pic of it. I would possibly have interest in a Mkiv Government model, long barrel with the match chamber.......

You know, they did make a few Mark III Government Models, but for some reason, production was abruptly stopped. This Ruger Mark II Government version will not be going anywhere for quite a while. Since this picture, I have installed a steel trigger, reworked sear, front sight with insert and white outline blade rear. Did the work in late fall, so I couldn't find any "LEAFS" laying around.

Yep, that would be just the ticket.

I like the slabside but not when I can buy 2 target models for the same money.

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.

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.
