New Mark IV 22/45 Target pics

New range toy. Yes that is a .50 BMG holding it at an angle because this is a gun forum right. Last time I spoke about this pistol I was asking for pictures and maybe some kind of insight on it. Couldn't really get a straight answer other than go to store and get a feel for them. Went to the store, bought it, LOVE IT!. Just a quick FYI about my experience with .22lr pistols, I have only owned and still own the Browning Buckmark URX Contour 5.5" barrel. No experience with disassembly on any of the previous Ruger Mark series .22lr pistols.
Positives: Easier to disassemble than my Buckmark and it is fun to shoot .
Neutrals: Trigger on it is not bad. I can see why so many people talk about swapping out the trigger though. I added talon granulate grip on the front of trigger guard just because it is just smooth on the front and I like to rest my support index finger there because of reasons.
Negatives: The big issue I am having is the slide release is not releasing the bolt. Maybe only on this model?!?. There are some people on Youtube with different models that actually use it as a slide release. It has been mentioned that on some models it takes a lot of effort to actually use the slide release, but if I pull any harder I am sure I will damage something. I have noticed that slingshoting the bolt manually doesn't work unless I pull the bolt all the way back up against the mechanical stop, then I will see the "slide lock(same freken button as release)" drop and let go of the bolt and get it to chamber. (This is not the case for most pistols in my experience)After doing this for less than 100 rounds, I just pull the bolt enough to relieve the tension on the slide lock/ release (which should work initially right?) and then push down the release manually for the bolt to clear and chamber a fresh magazine. Not a deal breaker considering that it is a .22lr. But I am unsure of why the "Slide lock/ release" don't work in unison, you can't say that they improved it from a small button to a real useful lever just so you can only lock it open...
Anyone that can talk about their new Mark IV's slide release working or having similar issues would be helpful just so I can maybe know what I am talking about just in case I need to call Ruger
You guys know that pictures are awesome. I love seeing everybody's different styles. Here is mine. Hopefully issue will get resolved, if not then I'm still gonna keep it.

Very nice! My slide release is a bit stiff. Seems to be loosening up with use.

I just bought the Mark IV Lite, all black version. I had the same question about the bolt stop lever. Mine won't release the bolt either. I read the manual twice and it appears it is not meant to be a release like my Mark III. I wonder if the new design somehow affected the ability to actually make it a bolt release as well. I meant to call Ruger but after shooting it the past two weeks I'm already used to pulling back the bolt to load the pistol. The takedown is awesome but don't like a modern design abandoning the bolt release function. It's a gas to shoot with the supressor.

Weird that we can all see that a few people are getting the same issue as I am and some people are saying that the release is functional. Looked at Volquartsen's website and they do not have anything regarding the release. Gunna call Ruger, I'll let you guys know if I get any answer regarding the release.

I was working on a magazine today that wasn't functioning correctly. The slide was releasing when hitting the lever, but it was stiff. It is loosening up with use. My one magazine kept releasing whenever the bolt was released. So, I kept using the release. The magazine was eventually repaired and now the release is even smoother. I used two hands to allow for faster releases... It seems to be wearing in reasonably. I'm also happy I have a working magazine!

Cool, I was wondering if Ruger was going to make a 22/45 Mark IV. I've got the 22/45 Mark 3 which I've disassembled & reassembled for the last time. Next time, a new Mark IV.

Babbalou, Ruger is offering three different Mark IV 22/45s, the standard one, the Lite and the tactical. Perhaps sometime in the near future they will offer more models like the Hunter. You can take a look at them on Rugerís website.
