Mark IV report

This is a discussion on Mark IV report within the Range Reports forums, part of the Firearm Forum category; +1 on it being the ammunition and not the pistol. Have a new MkIV owner favor to ask. Would you mind taking your grips off ...

Would you mind taking your grips off and having a look inside the mag well area and see if you can tell where the tail of the magazine disconnector spring is secured?
Mine's bent outward slightly and catches on the magazines a bit. I'm wondering if mine's either bent or simply not in the correct place. I have not had the weapon apart except to clean it and remove a grip panel to have a better look. Thanks in advance!!!! -eddie

YES!! Thank you!
You solved my mystery!
I didn't see the little slot in the grip frame where the end of the spring's supposed to be resting. Whomever assembled my MkIV at the factory didn't, either.

It was wound around into the mag well where it got bend at a peculiar angle with use.
After seeing your photo, it took me longer to get the pistol and tools out than it did to
gently pull the spring end back through and carefully bend it so that it catches in the slot properly.
Again, thank you! You just saved me a lengthy conversation with Ruger and possibly a trip to UPS to ship it back to AZ.

I have to admit when we had 22 cal bowling pin night, everyone that used the Thunderbolts had jams and failure to fire. The CCI, Winchester, Federal, and Aguila have been trouble free.
