My New Ruger Mark IV Hunter 4.5 Inch Barrel all Stainless Steel. (Pictures)



Log in to see fewer ads
Just got today a New Ruger Raffir Hunter Model # 40172.
This is the all Stainless Steel Model that just came out, Unlike the other Raffir Hunter (model 40132) that was aluminum black lower with a stainless upper.
The barrel is 4.5 inches and a shorter version of its big brother Hunter at 6.78 inches.
I changed out the ugly cheap looking black raffir plastic grips for the classic wood grips that I like better.
She also got a full Volquartsen Accurizing kit.
Next up is to send it out to be threaded in the next few weeks.
I posted its big brother with it for size comparison.
Enjoy.

I used to have the Mark III TALO version with the 5.5" barrel. They are really nice looking guns! My only complaint with the Mark III was that the magazine would stick upon insertion if you didn't hold the angle just right. Did they fix that issue on the Mark IV's?

FWIW, neither my MkIV Hunter or MkIV 22/45 Lite have any issues with magazine insertions or releases (6 each-all OEM mags).
