Mark IV: The Ruger Evolution

The .22 Ruger pistol launched what is now a household name (among those that contain guns, at least) and the new Mark IV could well be the best yet. What’s more, it takes down with the mere press of a button.

The First Ruger

In doing some research for the “From the Editor” for the September issue, I spent some time looking at William Batterman Ruger’s first contribution to American Rifleman, and no it wasn’t his “.22 Ruger Pistol” that made its debut in a September 1949 advertisement, nor was it Technical Editor Julian S. Hatcher’s extremely favorable review of “two production-line samples of the .22 Ruger” that ran in November 1949.
