RUGER MARK IV TARGET BLACK .22LR – 40159
Ruger’s new Mark IV semi-auto rimfire pistol is an elegant and modernized progression of the company’s signature pistol line that dates back to its inception in 1949. It reaffirms the company’s position in the target-pistol market in the face of some new competition from established gun makers, and some welcome design changes make the Mark IV easier to shoot and care for than its predecessors, and far less intimidating for newer shooters.
In addition, Sturm, Ruger & Company has done something remarkable. The country’s leading gun maker has taken its first and most iconic firearm, redesigned it to fix a problem that has been frustrating shooters for decades, and updated its internals and controls just enough for the modern shooting world, while retaining both the original pistol’s aesthetics and, more importantly, its accuracy.
