Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Semi-Automatic Pistol 22 Long Rifle

(10 customer reviews)


The Ruger Mark IV is a remarkably handsome pistol with a vintage shape and a host of modern features. It also looks great on the hands. My “Target” variant model has a stainless steel frame with a wooden grip.

What is the trigger on a Ruger Mark IV?

This is a tie for two Ruger pistols because they use the same single-action trigger. We felt a very soft pull that pulled the 5-pounder trigger and snapped hard. However, depending on your style and preferences, we recommend doing some trigger work for the gun to increase proficiency.

The Ruger line features reliable, accurate, and ergonomic .22LR pistols suitable for shooters of all walks of life. Whether you need a self-defense firearm for an emergency or want a fun recreational gun for the weekend, you’ll find a Mark IV pistol to meet your needs.

It seems silly to include a modern weapon, and many experienced shooters shout about it. But this is Ruger 22/45 lite, relevant to new shooters and anyone who misses a small, easily overlooked .22 round that fails to get the extractor up. The weapon also has a manual frame guard.

    SEALs *used* AKs in a war 50+ years ago, that’s not the same thing as “SEALs use them.” There’s a plethora of reasons they used them, not all were because of reliability. For example, if behind enemy lines, ammo can be resupplied off of enemy dead. Modern day SOF use a lot of different weapons, and train on everything they might encounter. It doesn’t mean the AK is their primary weapon, which is what you made it sound like.

    the M16/AR15 was not the same weapon in 1967 as it is today. Everyone knows it had reliability issues, most of which was caused by ammunition/powder.

    “AK’s have failed”…that’s like saying “Shit has smelled good before.” Maybe. But rarely. Stoppages are a way of life for AR’s, an occasional thing for AK’s. Is the bullet going twice as fast? Let’s face it, I have some 154 grain soft nosed bullets. Probably travelling at least 4/5ths the speed of your 77 grainer. Twice the weight. Half again as large in diameter. Ain’t gonna throw mine in the mud. I have used both. Clean ’em, lube ’em, put ’em side by side and fire till they stop. See which one fails first. You know as well as I do the AK will still be running long after the AR freezes up. Heavier bullet, larger diameter, way more dependable. You know that.

    there’s a reason the 300blk out is gaining steam. and it’s not only because it suppresses well. it also has very similar ballistics to the 7.62 x39.

    (also the russians switched to 5.45 because weight, and recoil under full auto)

  5. Mike (verified owner)

    Reliable? Aks have failed and the mudtest showed that. Ballistics better than 5.56 in sbrs? Debatable. 77 grain 5.56 out of a 10.3 is still going faster than 7.62×39 out of this 12.25 barrel. Yeah it’s cool and a beast gun but there’s a reason even the russians moved away from 7.62×39 and into 5.45.

    own 2 ar’s and 5 ak’s.There is a reason and it’s not the price;if I want reliable is ak all the way why do you think seals use them.The 2 ar’s are 762 and because of design both break bolts after about 2000 rounds.I don’t need this when SHTF.Also have USA Draco and it purrs like wildcat .Just sayin…

    I have had mine about 2 years. When I first got it, I notice that there were some issues with reliability, with the first 200-400 rounds. After that it has been a flawless rifle, and I’m well into the thousands of rounds through it. Somewhere between 4000-5000. I think the reliability issues came from the sharp angles on the hammer-face. Once I shot it more it smoothed it out a bit, and it stopped catching. I will be buying more from PSA. They made me love the AK design. I have used ak’s before but never owned one until this rifle. I admit I buy a lot of Gucci guns, so I’m really happy PSA has delivered a product that encourages me to give the cheaper brands a chance

    My preference has been Ruger. This time I could not locate a Ruger & this S&W became available thru Palmetto Armory. Decided to buy & also it would be good in Silver to easily I.D. from my Black Rugers. Was pleasantly surprised that it actually fits my hand much better. I now prefer shooting this S&W better than the several Rugers I have located around my house/vehicles. It also fits my shoulder harness nicely. Happy Owner!
