Ruger FINALLY fixes the Mark take down issue!

Post by itsme » Fri Sep 23, 2016 5:11 pm

Ruger announced the Mark IV that has a very quick one button take down and reassembly process - the ONE big reason most of us have complained about the Mark I, II and III for years =D>

I have had a mk1 for years, have never broke it down. Too much of a pain. Looked at review of mk4, looks like I may have to get that one =D>

Well hell, now anyone can have one ](*,) ](*,)

Seriously this is way overdue. My Mark III 22/45 Lite is a total pain in the ass to take down, even with the Tandemkross upgrades done to it.

You guys clean your 22s? I think the new pistols are an awesome idea but they did goof w/ the looks a bit to get there. I hope people dump their earlier Rugers to get one of the new ones... /:f

There's an issue with the other ones?
It might be blasphemy, but just follow the instructions and there's nuttin' to it.
But since hardly anybody likes doing that, this new version should be a real big hit.
For their bottom line, they probably should have done it long ago.

I have a feeling Ruger redesigned their pistol after S&W came out with the "easy to take apart" Victory model. S&Ws threaded barrel option is a nice feature too

So has anyone actually seen a Mark IV 22/45 lite in your gun store yet (and price)? I have been considering the Mark III version as a suppressor host, but now I'm thinking maybe the Mark IV would be better. I'm not in a rush yet since my stamp hasn't come back yet and probably won't until Feb/Mar.

I never has a problem taking Ruger .22 Standards down or putting them back together. It does help to grease the bolt stop and perhaps give it a smack with a rubber mallet to set it in place. Once the gun has been taken down a few times the bolt stop is much easier to fit in place.

Same here. I have 4 Ruger 22 pistols in series 2 and 3 and they all come apart pretty easy after first few times.
