Here is how it disassembles.
Ruger did this right.

I bought one last week and love it. I have had it to the range twice with 400rds through it , the pistol ran perfect.

Sorry if this has already been asked (I did a search but came up empty), but I wonder if it will be possible to retrofit an existing pistol(Mark III, 22/45, etc) with this easy take-down benefit?

Fxd, sorry but I don't see how it can be retrofit to the older model, the MKIV is made on a completely new frame that is sold steel, cast and then machined, not a stamped and welded.

Agree with Tigger, however Majestic Arms makes a "speed strip" kit for earlier Rugers, that might be helpful.

So if I buy the Target can I still hunt with it? ;-)

Actually that's a halfway serious question.

I went to the LGS to buy one. Fit and finish was excellent. Then just for fun I held the Browning Buck Mark. It just fit my hand much better. Walked out with the Buck.

SS II- can you tell us what brands/types of ammo you were shooting, and which your pistol preferred? WB

Is it possible to put a rail on this gun for a red dot sight? Thinking about waiting for the 22/45 MK IV to come out but Santa wants to pull the trigger on one for the wife!

Sorry, just read on Ruger's web site that it is drilled and tapped for a rail.

Mark 4 grips

New guy here, an new owner of a Mark 4. Just got done with my altering grip fit to allow the use of the Hogue Thumb rest n finger grooves. Turned out very nice, am I am a perfectionist most say. If anyone wants pictures just ask. Not sure how to post pictures but can't be to hard.
It maybe too large a grip for my hands though.
What's the best scope base out there if I want to have a low profile sight? Source n number would be awesome. Thanks regardless.

Also, I search for Fostech Echo triggers an turned up no results. Any Echo users out there? Any chance of a source out there that manufactures of threaded barrels for the Mark 4? Never thought I'd get a Mark 1/2/3 but I couldn't pass the 4 up a while back. Still need to get a decent sight, never had one of those either regarding a pistol setup. Any thoughts out there? Lower profile perferred I'd say.
Later Ty
Any high end drone flyers out there? As like Inspire 2 loaded out? .

No. Complete design change, the "grip" is now a single piece of aluminum (or steel if you get the stainless model), including the trigger guard. They moved the serial number to the barrel assembly so the upper is now the firearm.

Maybe they'll start offering interchangeable grips.

The serial number has always been on the receiver of Standard and Mk pistols, not the frame.
