What would be considered a decent 10 shot group size from a mk iv competition model shot from a rest at 20 yards? Thanks for your input.

Lots of variables there. Shooter, rest, ammo, trigger, individual gun, sights, weather... Are you asking what wold be respectable for the shooter or what the gun is capable of?
In any case,.Here is a review of a Ruger MK IV Hunter (just about the same gun.) hey got 1/4" out of a ransom rest at 25 yds with good ammo.

Here's some targets from a Mk IV Standard off a Hyskore rest at 15 yards. I'd say the pistol has potential. Four inch barrel; AT3 red dot sight.

The Ransom Rest removes the element of human error from the equation . What you end up with is the true potential of the gun & ammo itself. That kind of accuracy is pretty impressive. I've read a couple of other test reports on these guns but none provided quite this level of accuracy. I don't know if this guy buys these guns or borrows them for testing but either way I'd do my best to hang on to that one.

Yea, Jeff does allot of gun reviews. Some written. Some on Video. Some both. In his UTube vids, he often states that they are sent/lent to him on request. His Vid on the MK IV is worth watching as well.

p.s. Agree that the gun is a keeper. However, I don't think that kind of accuracy is uncommon in these Rugers. I used to shoot Gallery with an old gent that used a bone stock MK II 22/45 that he had drilled and tapped to mount a $30 BSA red dot.. Offhand he would often shoot scores in the 280/300 range with that gun ( and match ammo). I currently own 8 Ruger MK series pistols. All can shoot better than I can.

Although not a perfect comparison because this is my Volquartsen V-2000, which of course has a different barrel.


I shot this 20 shot group using just lowly CCI standard velocity when I first got the pistol.

20 shots at 25yds using a MTM rest with an Aimpoint H1 red dot.
Group mesures .35 inchh. Not bad consideing I was using a red dot, not a scope, and certainly not a Ransom Rest.


So a MKIV shooting a 1/4 inch group using a Ransom Rest seems very plausible.

That's stellar performance, Smooth! Everything has to come together just right to put 20 shots into a group like that.

Not quite as good as some of the other groups shown but these are from a sandbag rest with my wrists on the bag. 25 yards.

The Ruger Competition MK IV of mine shot from a Rock Jr. rest with a Simmons 2-6X pistol scope with Burris rings had a few groups under 1/2" at 25 yards with Aguila Pistol Match. The other groups were in the 3/4" range. Not bad for cheap ammo, not so stable setup, and a rest made for a rifle! ... AH

Here is what Ruger was able to do with my MK IV target. I think that these pistols are very capable.
