New to Mark IV can use Help with after market parts



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi,
thanks for looking, I'm into 10/22 and most rifles, I am going to get a Mark IV soon and wanted to know what I can change out, like to get a light trigger or other up dated parts

also thinking of getting the Hunter or the Target in Stainless steel, any thoughts on what model you like out of all of them

thank you

Rick

I use a MKIV 22/45 Lite for Steel Challenge... I added the Volquartsen trigger/hammer/sear upgrade and got a trigger pull that rivals my SW M41... using bulk Federal blue box, it would not cycle the bolt far enough to cock the hammer... added the VQ recoil spring kit with the lightest weight spring, and works well with CCI SV ... I had a stuck in barrel squib with the Federal so I'm reluctant to shoot it in the thin Lite barrel .... you probably would not need the oversize Striplin thumb rest and safety, along with the TademKross grips which are pretty specialized for Steel Challenge... VQ has a discount page with new take off barrels for a very good price, though they need to be sent to a FFL as they are the serial numbered part, so you can set up multiple MKIVs on the same frame... I have one set up for a Holosun 510c and another fixed sight with a TacSol front fiber optic... regards

I would never waste money on aftermarket parts for a Ruger MK IV.

wait is that sarcasm lol
after I posted I found out it was like saying I just got a Ruger 10/22 are there after market parts lol
and I see how the upper changes so easy for different setup

sounds like it's just like my six Ruger 10/22, I even have two that do not have any Ruger parts not one at all LOL



what to do ? I may not need to start with pistols when 22 ammo is hard to get and OMG price
I have 22 ammo I paid .03 to .05 a round for lucky I'm that old

To seriously answer your question, I would suggest going with the Hunter and adding the Volquartsen Accurizing Kit, Volquartsen Bolt Tune-Up Kit, Volquartsen Recoil Rod and Spring Kit, and Hogue Monogrip. I like the Volquartsen Magazine Follower Buttons also.

Volquartsen accurizing kit with hammer and sear will give you the best trigger. I believe mine is 1.5 lb pull.

The volquartsen extractor cured just about every type of failure I ever had. Just get the bolt upgrade kit from them, it includes the firing pin and extractor. My factory firing pin broke, it ended up peening the breech face. Just cosmetic, but I wish I'd have just gone the distance when I bought the extractor.

Tandemkross has about anything you could want for an upgrade. Majestic Arms also has some very nice stuff. I like Majestics palmswelll grips in particular.

If you go with a red dot, Lobos makes the cleanest, lowest mount imo. However, the Tandemkross shadow mount 2 will give you more red dot options and the ability to mount the dot in fore or aft positions.

Just a heads up, I've spent more in accessories for my Mark IV than I spent on the purchase price of the pistol . But you don't have to do it al in one day. To me , the aftermarket fun is one of the best things about the Mark IV.

My buddy just got a Blued Hunter. It is one of the most beautiful pistols I've ever seen. The factory trigger is fantastic at 2.5 lbs. He bought it to customize it, but it is so beautiful and shoots so nice, he just went with the bolt upgrade kit for improved reliability.

As far as which model, I have the Hunter stainless and I like it a lot. It has I think a 7" barrel or thereabouts. I like it and the only other model I've considered since is the 22/45 .

Good luck!

LOL

Volquartsen makes some good tune up parts for the 10/22 and are a trusted name

the photos of the Stainless Hunter are so good I NEED ONE

What is your favorite place to buy parts ?

THANKS

Without a doubt the #1 best thing you can do to improve a MK IV pistol. You can replace the trigger return spring in the Volquartsen kit with a Tandemkross trigger return spring and bump the pull up to 2 lbs, which I prefer, both for feel and for a more positive reset, which can be a plus when you have been shooting a lot and the action is full of powder residue.

I use Brownells whenever possible as I live in AK and have an Edge membership for the free shipping and returns. I have also ordered directly from Volquartsen, Tandemkross and Pete's Pillars with good results. It all comes down to the best price including shipping at the time.

My simple build, my Mark IV 22/45 with Voqluartsen Accurizing Kit. It brought the trigger down from over 6 pounds to a very comfortable 1 pound 7 ounces on average with my Lyman Digital Scale.

I also have the lighter Volquartsen spring so I can reliably shoot CCI SV. I was getting failures to feed before changing out the spring.

Add a compensator. Carolina Crusher is my favorite, but the Tandemkross Game Changer Pro is pretty nice also. Both are easy to clean

I've tried the Tandemkross Vicotry Trigger but decided I didn't like the serrations so I put the VQ trigger in. Adjustable for pre and over travel it helps when shooting at speed.

StonerCNC.com makes the grips I currently use. These are Herrit's.

You can make any modifications you want from basic to expensive. Get the trigger done first, get some more magazines and stuck up on ammo.

I like the C-More Railway red dot sight and mine has a 12 MOA dot on it for Steel Challenge matches.

very nice looking rigs
classics to ray gun you can do anything they are the 10/22 of handguns
if only things were normal, I could find what I want for below MSRP

I been shooting Ruger Marks since I was 5 years old My older cousin had one it must have been one of the first Marks, being it was 1965
I'll never forget the shape of it, and the pearl grips, I could hit the tin can every time

when I was a younger crazy man I thought it not good to have a carry gun, being a great shot with anger management issues not a good mix LOL

maybe good time to get a Ruger Mark IV I can see me dumping $$$ on goodies for it, there goes the few cases of 22 ammo I been stashing for years

I have a Co2 Mark III lol looks real and shoots well lol
