Heads up, Ruger Mark IV owners
Ruger is recalling all of its new Mark IV .22LR pistols manufactured before June 1st, 2017. You'll find details at the company's Web site. If you enter your pistol's serial number into the provided box, it'll tell you whether or not your gun is subject to the recall, and provide further information.
Ruger's promising a free magazine with every pistol sent back for repair, which is nice of them. Having bought Miss D. a pair of bronze-anodized Ruger Mk. IV 22/45 Lite pistols (similar to the one shown below), I'm disappointed that she'll have to suspend her use of them until they're fixed. Even so, I'm glad Ruger is standing behind their products (as one would expect from a company like that).
I continue to think that the Mark IV is Ruger's best rimfire pistol yet, despite this minor glitch. I'll be buying more of them, as they bring out color variations in the 22/45 Lite version.
