Cool New Mark IV Pics

I picked up my new Mark IV Hunter. It's awesome. The finish and craftsmanship is excellent. The grips look really sharp. The new upgrades to the IV are quite excellent. It's no $200 Mark II, but it looks like a keeper.

Takedown is a cinch. The safety and bolt release feel good and release fairly well (the bolt release is a bit stiff). The sights seem like the will be pretty good. The trigger is mildly mushy and a bit heavy. The mag release is easy to access and the mag assist really sends those magazines flying!

Overall, it looks good and seems like everything will function well. I hope to shoot it on Friday.

I plan to have this threaded for a suppressor. First, I want to run it and perhaps modify a few things.

Thanks y'all.

The inside is a bit dirty from test firing at the factory. I don't see any shavings though.

I got the same impression from my 22/45 Tactical trigger - not "mushy" exactly but longer-than-I'd-really-like takeup and does seem heavy for a single action pistol.

I also got the Tactical to be ready for suppressor but will be tinkering with some other things first.

The aftermarket triggers are tempting on this platform. The flat triggers not only offer lighter pulls, but they also look pretty cool (important, right?).

Anyways, it needs to be shot a bunch first. Soon!

Congratulations, NH. Nice looking pistol. Glad you were willing to pay more than $200 for it or you might have missed out on a lot of fun!

It definitely looks sharp. I am really impressed with the craftsmanship (watch- it won't shoot well haha!).

I agree with that. I only have 100 rounds down mine but picked up 500 more ready to go soon.

Excellent! I have plenty ready to go though I may stop by the Rural King and try some of that Geco ammunition. I was hoping to find some standard and low velocity ammo to see how it cycles. Oh well. High velocity will work just as well.

Really nice MKIV. That fluted barrel is perfect. I wouldn't want to mess up the barrel with a suppressor, but it's your gun
