Ruger Mark IV Hunter Capacity

The Ruger Mark IV Hunter is chambered in .22LR and is fed by a single-stack magazine with a 10-round capacity.

The grip angle of the Ruger Mark IV Hunter is very conducive to quick target acquisition.  While this pistol measures over 11 inches long, its lightened barrel allows for a quicker draw from a holster and its open-notch target sights allow for very intuitive aiming.

Ruger Mark IV Hunter Ergonomics

The Ruger Mark IV Hunter takes many design elements from other pistols including a grip angle identical to the Luger P08 and a bolt charging handle styled after the Nambu.  It is built with contoured wood grips for an incredibly stable hold to help the user increase their accuracy when target shooting. 

Ruger Mark IV Hunter Fit & Finish

The Ruger Mark IV Hunter is available with a satin stainless finish and a 7.9 inch barrel or in a blued finish with a 5.5 inch barrel.  In both options, the steel components are hardened in proper Ruger fashion to incredible strength making them very durable and resistant to damage from weather and wear.
