Manufacturer’s Description

The Ruger Mark IV Competition is a semiauto pistol built on a stainless steel frame with a stainless steel upper receiver, and chambered in .22 LR. Other features include:

  • A recessed button in the frame’s rear allows the upper receiver to tilt up and off the grip frame without the use of tools;
  • a one-piece, precision CNC-machined grip frame;
  • a slab-sided bull barrel;
  • an ergonomic bolt stop;

  • replaceable smooth and polished laminate grips;
  • an internal cylindrical bolt to ensure permanent sight-to-barrel alignment;
  • a contoured ejection port and easy-to-grasp bolt ears;
  • an adjustable rear sight;
  • a fixed post front sight;
  • a drilled and tapped receiver for a Weaver- or picatinny-style optics rail (rail not included);
  • an ambidextrous manual safety that positively locks the sear in the “SAFE” position when applied (you can convert the safety to left-side-only with an included washer);
  • a left-side push-button magazine release and a drop-free magazine;
  • a magazine disconnect safety;
  • a satin stainless finish; and
  • two 10-round magazines.

For the Mark IV Competition’s initial run, Ruger will laser-engrave “100 Years” and William B. Ruger’s signature on the barrel to celebrate the company founder’s 100th birthday. It will produce 1,000 of these pistols with a special serial number, and include a Ruger centennial knife from CRKT with a matching serial number and leather sheath.

Note: This pistol is not California- or Massachusetts-approved.
