The Mark IV Standard and Tactical are the latest iterations of Ruger’s venerable, now-easy-to-clean .22 semi-automatic pistol. (Press release below.) Triskaidekaphobes note: the new guns increases the number of Mark IV options to 13.
The $449 MSRP Standard model’s tapered barrel — available in 4.75” and 6” lengths — harkens back to Ruger’s flagship 1949 model. The $569 suppressor-ready Tactical model is Picatinnied up the yin-yang, ready for a red dot, light, laser, cigar holder, whatevs.
The Mark IV is an excellent beginner’s gun, now available as a Ruger Luger or a tacticool target practice/self-defense pistol.
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is excited to announce three new additions to the growing line of Mark IV pistols: the Mark IV Tactical and two Mark IV Standard models. Since the launch of the Mark IV in 2016, this family of rimfire pistols has expanded to include 13 offerings.
The Mark IV Tactical features a 4.40″ barrel with a 1/2″-28 thread pattern – perfect for the addition of the Silent-SR. The pistol also is equipped with fully adjustable sights and factory-installed upper and lower Picatinny rails to allow for mounting of lights, lasers and other tactical accessories.
Much like the popular Standard pistol that was the Company’s flagship offering in 1949, the new Mark IV Standard model features a tapered barrel and a natural pointing grip angle. The Standard model is offered in both 4.75” and 6” barrel lengths with fixed sights.
Each of these new models features a one-piece, precision CNC-machined grip frame. Like all pistols in the Mark IV family, the Tactical and Standard models feature a simple, one-button takedown for quick and easy field-stripping, ambidextrous manual safety and a redesigned bolt stop for more ergonomic operation.
The magazines drop free on release for faster reloads and a redesigned magazine disconnect prevents discharge when the magazine has been removed.
Internal improvements include changes to the hammer, sear, bolt and firing pin for smoother, more reliable feeding. Mark IV pistols are compatible with a variety of Mark III aftermarket accessories including sights, scope bases and holsters.
All models of the American-made Mark IV pistol ship with two, 10-round magazines.
