A good quality .22 rimfire pistol has always been a pleasure to shoot, but the Ruger Mark IV Hunter pistol is a thing of beauty. While it doesn’t look much like the Standard, the Mark IV still features everything that made the Standard great.
Features of the Mark IV Hunter
The Mark IV is a beautiful pistol that has a stainless steel 6.8-inch barrel with a brushed satin finish. The barrel is fluted to reduce weight and is an attractive contrast to the laminated wood factory grips.
Our next stop in the Mark IV’s features is the ambidextrous safety, which comes standard, so you never have to change your grip. The slide release is also easy to reach, but the magazine release requires moving the shooting hand. The pistol can be disassembled with the press of a button, no extra tools needed.
It uses a .22 Long Rifle cartridge, has a drilled and tapped receiver for Picatinny or Weaver rails, and a capacity of 10+1. The pistol is hefty at 44 ounces, so be aware of that before you hunt.
Why Choose the Ruger Mark IV
Ruger has had a reputation since it opened its doors in 1949 for making simple, durable pistols at affordable prices. That is as true now as it was then, and they are always working on upgrading and innovating to create the best possible .22 rimfire pistols.
Until the Mark IV, Ruger pistols had always been difficult to disassemble, and there were other, little things which have been improved. An ergonomic grip, lighter weight, and simpler controls are just a few.
It’s easier to go backwoods hunting with the Mark IV, too than with a rifle, and having a hunting pistol allows you to practice or improve your stalking skills. Better yet, teach them to the next generation, so the knowledge won’t be lost.
