Default Ruger's new Mark IV .22 pistol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAteY5RFEoI

Ruger has updated their .22 pistol, finally, with an push-button take-down so it is easier to clean. The video does not show the target version, but it is similar to the Model 10101 Mark III.

Now, we just need Volquartsen to come out with a better trigger package since their offerings won't fit this pistol.

If the lockup of the barrel/receiver to the frame is as rigid and durable as the Mk. I,II,III ... it'll be a great improvement. But, otherwise, it'll just be another example of someone taking a great pistol and making it an also ran. JMHO. Sincerely. bruce.

Anyone know if Mark III uppers would fit on the IV grip frame? My ideal would be a 22/45 and conventional grip frames and 3-4 upper receivers with different barrel configurations. Of course, as Bruce noted good lockup over lots of takedowns would be required. Although my most accurate Ruger literally falls apart as soon as the mainspring is removed.

I predict that the MK IV will be handgun of the year, with demand outpacing production.
Expect to order and wait. The Mk IV changes everything people hated about the MK III. Gone is the chamber indicator, and complicated disassembly. It will be the standard for CMP EIC pistol especially if they make a steel lower for a 22/45 unlike the polymer lower on the MK III.

Appears to be no interchangeablility. Looks like barrel/receiver assembly attaches to the grip frame with some type of pivot pin just to the rear of the barrel. No 1911 profile grip styles are shown for the Mark IV only the traditional Mark I grip angle. Stainless models have stainless frames, blue have aluminum, catalogue pricing seems to be on par with Mark III offerings.

I would imagine that if the lockup is not consistent, Volquartsen or someone will come up with a fix, just like that spacer for the AR-15 lower to make it more rigid.
