I've got mine.


Trigger pull measures at 5#6oz. Three try avarage with a digital gauge.
Already modified it, as we RFC'rs must, by removing the ambi safety.
Trigger breaks clean, but lot's of over travel. Will drill and tap the trigger on Monday for a screw.

Will shoot a box of Fed AM through it Sunday.

The target model would be more what I would "need" as far the shooting I do, but I really like the look of the fluted stainless barrel.

Little squishy, but I think better than my MK 3. My unscientific measurements indicate 5/32" of take up and 3/32" of creep.

The right side safety hits my index finger joint in just the wrong place. It's got to go!

I hope there's a plan to eliminate the mag disconnect soon. And I'll be installing an exact edge extractor too.

Com'on JVS(!) ,- we do need really hope this newer iteration Ruger provides as much fun & accuracy as those older HS's and Colts we were able to acquire when they were semi-affordable.

Lookin' at the pics, it makes one wonder how it could NOT shoot and that it is more accessible for cleaning?? Methinks it is VERY attractive.. on multiple fronts. Heck, we haven't hardly let 'em open the gate, let alone seen how the cowboys may ride this new entry to a good score. Me? I'm hoping they all do.

Same here, and the wood grips are great too, on the Hunter. I had my choice, and the sights decided it for me, in the end. Hoping for some cool thumb rest after market grips soon.

The grips hold in the safety, and the screw. Just take off the grip, remove the safety lever, reinstall the screw, then put the grip panel back on.

Mag disconnect doesn't bother me, as it's not a defensive weapon. If it improves the trigger, I'll do it, if not, I'll leave it alone. Mags shoot out under spring power.

Looks great, as long as the current sear and trigger upgrades will work.

I just wish they had serialized the lower, instead of the upper.
With no way to combine other Mk's it only made sense.
But, at least they got rid of the LCI and put the Lawyer Speak on the bottom of the barrel.

Bolt slingshots too.

My first handgun was a MKII 5.5" stainless. I paid $225 brand new for it. I was young and stupid, so I traded it and a Marlin 336T off at the same time.

They did. It's cool, too. The walnut grips were very handsome as well.



I didn't like the sights. The balance felt a little better on the 'Target' too. Finally, it was considerably less expensive.

I'm hoping someone quickly makes some target grips with a thumb rest, and an improved trigger/sear.

Talking Missing???

to me, this new MK IV is Rugers answer to the easy takedown of the new S&W victory pistol. I have owned a MK I, MK II and I still have a GOLD LITE 22/45. the take down has ALWAYS been a royal PITA to me, AND a lot of other people. it IS the reason I don't own other ruger pistols, too much hassle. I have had my lite 5+ years, and I have NEVER taken it down, thank goodness for spray gun scrubber!this new MK IV may just make me buy another ruger! ruger has given us the ease of takedown that has been needed FOR YEARS!
