Leghorn’s Law of Product Announcements: a new paint job or tweaked feature on an existing model does not a new gun make. Fair enough. That said, Ruger would like you to know that they’re now offering the Mark IV 22/45 Lite in a Diamond Gray anodized finish. But hey, they’re offering the gray gun in a non-threaded version which almost like a new model. Anyway, the diamond gray finish goes along with the other colors of the rainbow they offer such as black, red, fuscia and OD.
As Ruger’s email blast notes:
The popular Mark IV™ 22/45™ Lite now features a new anodized finish for 2018 – Diamond Gray. Additional features of the Lite model include a lightweight, ventilated, aerospace-grade aluminum receiver, and a comfortable, precision-molded polymer grip frame. This model is now also available with a non-threaded barrel. Find yours today!
