Ruger is adding three new models to the growing Mark IV family of rimfire pistols, which include a bronze anodized Mark IV 22/45 Lite model, as well as Mark IV Hunter and Target models that feature wrap-around target grips. 

The Mark IV 22/45 Lite combines a lightweight, precision-molded, polymer grip frame with an aircraft grade aluminum upper receiver. The receiver features an attractive anodized bronze color and pattern-drilled vents for a custom pistol look without the custom price. Chambered in .22 LR, the Mark IV 22/45 Lite is fun to shoot, accurate and reliable. 

The Mark IV 22/45 Lite's CNC-machined aluminum receiver houses a 4.4” stainless-steel barrel, held in place by a tension nut to ensure accuracy. The Mark IV 22/45 Lite also features adjustable target sights, an installed Picatinny rail for easy mounting of optics and a factory-threaded 1/2"-28 muzzle to accept popular muzzle accessories. The precision-molded polymer grip frame incorporates replaceable Hogue black rubber grip panels that allow shooters to customize the look of the pistol. The Mark IV 22/45 Lite can be used for target shooting, plinking, small game hunting or competitive shooting.






The Mark IV Hunter model #40160 features a stainless steel fluted barrel, a HIVIZ fiber optic front sight and is now available with smoothly contoured, wood laminate target grips for precision shooting. The Mark IV Target model# 40159 features a satin blued alloy steel bull barrel, adjustable rear target sight and is also now available with smoothly contoured, wood laminate target grips. Both of these models are Massachusetts Approved and Certified. All Mark IV pistols feature the same legendary, one-piece barreled receiver and internal cylindrical bolt construction. The robust design ensures permanent sight-to-barrel alignment and higher accuracy potential than conventional moving-slide designs.
