Mark IV?



Log in to see fewer ads
These pictures have been floating around on the internet recently and you guys are the Ruger experts, so is this legit? They supposedly came from http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/201...-iv-22-pistol/ but it seems to have been deleted. Even the cache is gone.






An elaborate forgery? An answer to the Victory? Something for shot show next year or the new unannounced product? Sorry if this has been posted before, I didn't see a thread.

Out of my price range and a little to stylish for my taste. Maybe a little more spec info in the next week or so (hinge pin looks interesting), price around the first if the year, official announcement for shot show, or maybe not.😈

I have a Mark 2 and 2 Volquartson Scorpions (Ruger clones). Also a new S&W Victory. Going forward, Ruger needs to do something. Too many issues with their current guns. Marginal factory trigger, inability to swap barrels, serial # on the barrel and difficult field strip procedure come to mind immediately. None of this seems be present on the Victory. Sure, it has some issues for a small # of their guns, takedown screws mostly, either comes loose or won't loosen. However, seems quite isolated, and going fwd, the type of thing easily fixed by S&W. The Ruger issues are not so minor (triggers cost a few $$, no real way to fix the other issues).

Ruger has done so well, IMHO, because it is super reliable, and the aftermarket, e.g. Volquartson, Tandemkross, Clark, etc have provided means to improve to a competitive level. Plus, no real competition left. As the aftermarket gets up to speed with the new Victory (as is happening now) I think Mark 3 sales will give a bunch to the Victory. Its just too easy to hotrod the Victory.

I like Ruger and really really hope they come out with a well thought out Mark4.

Hey thanks for your contribution, and to RFC and the Ruger Mark III (IV) forum. Is it legit? Man, it sure [email protected]@KS like it. You're right, at least there is no "visible" Loaded Chamber Indicator.
The pistol, and the picture you graciously provided, has what appears to be an ambidextrous means whereby the upper can be rotated forward. That would coincide with the patent drawing in the Mark II forum.
I, for one, hope that you have SOMETHING here, and I'll be the first to purchase one of these as soon as they hit the distributors inventory.
Hopefully, Ruger has caught on to how fed-up some of the ~NEW~ steel grip frame pistol purchasers feel toward all the "nanny" devices that have been inflicted upon gun owners who know what they are doing and how to safely handle their firearms.

I look forward to a Ruger Mark IV forum.

Very exciting about the mark4 , but I think the s&w victory has much more to offer with easy of barrel swap and takedown , and don't forget the price point !! Wow , don't get me wrong I love ruger , but they need something like the new victory , just saying

I sure hope its true. That way I can pick up a couple Mark III Hunters or Competitions cheap when everyone who cant handle the dis/reassembly of the older Marks dumps theirs in favor of the Mark IV. Just today, a buddy brought his Mark III pencil barrel to me in a box, because he took it apart, and couldn't put it back together. I simply don't see why some people find it so difficult. It took all of about 2 minutes, and he was back in business with his Mark III.

I agree Weblance

I have quite a few and have only had problem with one and Ruger fixed it quickly.
I bought a new SW 41 a couple months ago and have yet to run 100 rounds through without a malfunction. Have a Victory and it has been flawless with over 1000 rounds. So bring on another Ruger! A few after a day shooting in the desert with my Grandson today.

Ruger Mark IV

There is a leaked picture of the new Mark IV out on a number of other forums. It will reportedly be introduced tommorow, September 23rd.

Biggest news from the photo: super easy to take down. Honorable memtion: loaded chamber indicator seems to be gone.

They are no longer selling them in Komifornia so some of the required safety stuff can be eliminated for the other free states.

I just watched Jeff Quinn testing it on Gunblast. Pretty cool.

From Ruger's own website:

http://www.ruger.com/products/markIV/overview.html

I may just get back into a Ruger again.... They listened.
