Day late and a dollar to much. I have a Victory and am very pleased with all aspects. I love my Rugers, but the Victory is a fine product at a great price point.

I have the Mark III, but this Mark IV looks great and so easy to clean. If I could afford one, I'd buy it right now. I watched the video and man this gun breaks down so easy. I gotta have one.

$600 + tax. The price of getting one of the first Hunter models. I did see a few offerings of list+++ and shipping, transfer and tax.

I have a mark II and I love it. I also have a Smith & Wesson victory and I love it more. Sorry Ruger, your name doesn't carry the price tag anymore. Smith & Wesson has the Victory over this one in my opinion.

Two years ago I bought a Mk III Hunter (because I prefer the fluted barrel to the Target's slabside). I now have 10 magazines for using the pistol at Steel Challenge matches. Conceptually I like the decomplicating disassembly redesign but I can find nothing on magazines? Does it use the same ones as the MkIII? If not, guess I'll wander off to the S&W Victory reservation.

According to the video on Ruger's website (at the 2:05 mark), Mark III mags are compatible w/ the Mark IV.

I thought the prices where going to be inline with the previous generation of pistols. Isn't the MSRP just a made up number that no one pays?

I just bought a stainless MK III target model a month and a half ago, just so I could "have the latest".

I'm happy with it, but sheesh...

Safety MUST be on or the takedown button will not push in. Shot over 125 rounds plus some old odd rounds, ran smooth with no hiccups! Would have run more but there were people waiting to use the range.

I still have my Mark II 5.5" bull barrel from the early 90s, I didn't feel the need to upgrade to a III, I can't imagine I'll need a Mark IV either. Accuracy hasn't improved, why would I?

I agree, the mark II is the best iteration of the ruger .22 pistol, functionally and aesthetically. If the mark II never existed I would buy into the new take-down feature, but I can certainly live without it.

Has anyone seen a picture of the winner of the new Mark IV?

I thought Ruger was pretty clear that a picture was a must in order to win the gun ...
