Ruger is stretching out their Mark IV Target .22LR pistols to include models that come standard with a 10-inch bull barrel.

Building on the company’s legacy of rimfire semi-auto target pistols, the new guns still use the standard Mark IV one-button takedown for quick and easy field-stripping with no tools. Coupled with a one-piece precision CNC-machined grip frame, the 10-inch barrel is near twice the length of the model’s typical 5.5-inch barrel variant. Even Ruger’s Mark IV Hunter and Competiton models only offer a 6.88-inch barrel.

The additional real estate pushes the pistol’s overall length to 14-inches– almost all of it sight radius– while the gun weighs in at a solid 46.3-ounces.

Ruger says the pistol’s cold hammer-forged barrel results in “ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity.” The guns also come standard with a contoured ejection port and easy-to-grasp rear bolt ears. (Photo: Ruger)

Other standard features include an adjustable rear sight, synthetic grips, push-button mag release, and an ambi manual safety. For those who want to add optics, the receiver is drilled and tapped for rails. Available in matte blue or stainless, the Ruger Mark IV Target ships with a pair of drop-free 10-round magazines.

MSRP is $645 for the blued aluminum-framed model while the stainless runs $719, prices that will likely be a good deal less at retailers.
