Spoiler alert: I like it :D For the last 6 months or so the only gun I have been shooting is my new Mark IV Target in stainless, and have put about 2, 000 rounds through it. A few thoughts:
*Sights needed adjustment but once dialed in the gun is far more accurate than yours truly
*The design of the gun makes for very easy cleaning (not just easy disassembly)
*After about 150 rounds in a cleaned gun, occasional stovepiping begins to occur. Simply cleaning the gun eliminates the issue
*A small piece of an old terrycloth towel between my thumb and the spring loaded button on the magazines makes for easier reloading

I'm a bit jealous, I've been looking for a 40126 or a 40163 for a reasonable price for around a year now. Seems to me Ruger is churning out the 22/45 Tacticool models and the traditional metal-framed .22 models have slowed to a trickle. Good to know that if I ever do manage to find one it should be good to go!

I think it's time for me to buy another, as well, but a MKII. The Competition Target was always one that I have wanted.

Glad you like your Mark IV !!!

I’ve always loved the Mark II as well, but then last Spring I bought a 22/45 Mark IV. They are pretty darn nice.
