Mark IV Target Grips

I just received a new set of target grips for my Mark IV , I knew they looked large on the Web site , and they sure are large.
Sheet of paper with them says they must be perfect to be returned , be I need to actually try them out to see if they are to big for my small hands.

If you have these do they help improve accuracy for you. I am shooting pretty well with the stock grips but the new ones sure do make it look pretty. I also added the Hi Viz front sight.
I have a hard time just leaving any gun I buy alone.

The new grips feel like they push my hand higher up under the bolt to almost being uncomfortable. I will probably return them unless I am able to at least shoot as well as before adding them.
I just added them for the looks. Maybe I will send them back and get the Mark IV laminate grips ,

Shoot them for a while and see if your scores improve. If not I'm sure you will be able to sell them in the classifieds.

My hands are not real large but fingers shorter I think . . I love the feel of the TARGET GRIPS on my MK IV and feel they give a much more stable hold and better accuracy than the original straight grips.

Give them a try . if after a while you do not like them you can always sell them . .

I have a Hunter on its way to me. I would like those grips, but first would like to see how they feel. I really do like them.

What other modifications have you done?

My MK IV HUNTER has been modified to what I would call a MK IV TARGET HUNTER:

I do not like the HUNTER MK IV "V" Rear Sights so changed those to the RUGER SQUARE TARGET REAR SIGHT.


I do not like the HUNTER FIBER OPTIC FRONT SIGHT so I changed that to the RUGER SQUARE TARGET FRONT SIGHT.


I added the RUGER RAIL that is made to fit ALL the RUGER MK's by having the EJECT SLOT in two different locations on either side as you can see on the left side of my MK IV the slot is for the MK I & II. . You mount it one way for MK I and II, MK III & MK IV is the reverse .


You will note the trigger assembly is not RUGER but VOLQUARTSEN - it is sooper smooth and changed the Ruger trigger pull from the factory 7 pounds to 2 pounds . .

As it is right now I see no reason to make any more changes to this pistol . It shoots better than I can . . .and I am a decent shooter . . .as you can see below a few years ago. . INDOOR RANGE STANDING FREE HAND . . probably can not replicate that today with my 71 year old eyes but I still shoot above average . . .


And if you are wondering about the colored wood pieces under my MK IV I use those to make cutting boards like this one:

the different ejection port cut outs are you can mount the rail the way you have it or remove the rear sight and flip the rail around so it doesn't over hang the barrel the holes are i this same location on all mark series guns as is the location of the ejection port

I bought these target grips from Altamont, and yes they were too large for me...
so I sanded and shaped the finger grips (with a dremel tool) to better fit my hand.
way better...
