Gun Thread: Ruger Mark IV Recall And Other Assorted Tidbits

3338_52_32-parts-diagram-ruger-mark-iii.jpg

There is a Ruger Mark IV Recall, and it doesn't surprise me at all.

Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV™ pistols (including 22/45™ models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the "safe" and "fire" positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), then the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the "fire" position, the pistol may fire at that time.
Anything with that many parts is an affront to John Browning and all that is holy.

So...admit it...you've stripped one of your weapons just a bit too far, and had to sneak over to the gun shop in the next town and have their gunsmith reassemble it.

Come on...fess up. You're amongst friends. We won't make fun of you.

Update: I completely forgot to credit Moron Commenter redc1c4 with the Ruger info.

What the hell happened there? Did he have his thumb on the break lever? Could the locking mechanism be broken and he was able to fire the shotgun anyway?

Weird. And stupid. Mostly stupid.

Anyone have any thoughts on aftermarket stocks? I have a Remington 700 BDL LH that shoots well, but I have been toying with the idea of replacing the wood with a composite stock. No reason. Just...because.

For no other reason than it is a beautiful pistol.
