Ted, I'll know precisely what's happening when I completely disassemble the frame tonight. After watching the video weblink that you provided (which I have watched before, months ago), it is my present belief that the MSH's cross pin hole has sheered... the cross pin is no longer keeping the MSH stationary to the frame (which is why it's slipping forward, blocking the hammer's travel rearward). The top latch component part itself appears to be functioning appropriately.

I'll take photo(s) tonight and share what I uncover. Thank you for all your help!

Just as I feared.

How often do any of you suppose this has happened to a Mark IV?

I went looking earlier today, and I didn't see any online source for a replacement Mark IV MSH. Guess I'll be calling Ruger.

I'm basically laying in wait for that to happen to mine. Once you've seen it, it just can't be unseen. MKII purists love that pic.

Thumbs up

My Mark IV's frame arrived back from Ruger on Friday with the new mainspring housing assembly installed **yippie!**. I reinstalled all the VqC trigger components and took her to the firing range during Saturday. Put approximately 400 rounds through her without a hiccup. So.... here's to hoping this new mainspring housing lasts the lifetime of the pistol.

I've seriously grown to luv this pistol. I can't think of any of my others that I more greatly enjoy to shoot.

Beautiful Pistol,
Better investigating on your part to find the problem. Good info all the way around.

TANDEMKROSS "Cornerstone" Safety

A day ago I added to Rhaegal what should be the last aftermarket accessory. A TANDEMKROSS "Cornerstone" Safety Thumb Ledge for the Ruger Mark IV standard.

I had been eye-balling one of these for the last few months... but they're not cheap. Anyway, I am very glad that I broke down and purchased one. For me and the way that I shoot (at a controlled firing range), this extended ledge safety lever is outstanding. For someone that uses their Mark IV predominantly as a field gun.... I'd say it's probably not going to be as useful. But YMMV.
