BTW, the S&W Victory is significantly less expensive.

I just bought a S&W Victory .22 with 5.5" bull barrel for $359 and it's stainless.

I already have a Ruger MK-II Std. and a MK-III 5.5" target with bull barrel and would like to have this new MK-IV.

Trouble is the price. Ruger wants $529 for blued and $689 for stainless.

Hopefully the street price on the Ruger will be a lot less or S&W will own this market.

That Hunter model is sweet, but at over $700, I don't see one in my future anytime soon.
Videos up at Gunblast.com and .22 Plinkster.

Looked at all the pics and watched / read the Gunblast review. I like the easy take-down of the Mark IV but I'm glad I picked up my Mark III Standard when I did. I think the hinge pin and cut-out at the front of the receiver detract a bit from the beauty of the older design.

Thanks for the updates y'all. I saw .22 Plinkster's video and like what I see. I definitely would like a target model. They are pricey, but being a Ruger it should last for at least two generations if not a third.

I'm guessing - and this is a pure SWAG - that the major manufacturers have given up on California, and probably Mass. to boot. The dreaded LCI on the Mk III was a nod for Mass. approval as far as I know.

I like the magazine safety myself - my LC9s has it and I think it's handy. Sometimes I have to leave a pistol sitting out for a few hours - and pulling the magazine neuters it in case prying fingers are able to get their hands on it. I do something similar with both Single-Sixes - I just pull the cylinder pin, then they can sit around for a day or so until I can clean them and lock them up...

It's nice to see the improvements, but I'm not really motivated to replace my Mk3 22/45 Lite at this point. Not for that price, anyway. In a couple of years when they release a Mk4 22/45 Lite then maybe I'll think about it, but the breakdown procedure is such a minor thing in the overall fun of owning a gun.

How cool, I have a Mark III Hunter with a Magestic Arms take down conversion and trigger kit in it. So glad Ruger stepped up and rethought their design.
I found I shot the Mk III more with the conversion in it since I no longered cursed st the pistol as I put it back together.

Does it use MK III Mags?

The Mark IV looks great! What a wonderful redesign. I'm just afraid the price will keep it from burying the S&W Victory. My friend got a Victory and has had nothing but problems. It is way to ammo sensitive and the barrel screw is still an issue for him no matter how tight he makes it. It has been back to S&W twice, so he has lost use of it for 7 weeks now. Who wants to have to use an Allen wrench to take down a pistol? Ruger got it right. I may be looking at a new gun! YEAH!
