Had a few $ left from the trip and was wanting a 22 handgun. Andrey showed me his Walther PPK/S-22 and I really liked that. But when I looked into them, the slide is a zinc alloy which killed the deal for me.

As graceful as I am, I could drop it, and zinc is brittle enough it could break. So I went with this Ruger Mk IV. The big selling point was it's very left hand friendly. Plus, you can buy other uppers and swap them around.

Call me old school, but I like steel! ;) SW

Nice! I used to think the Mk II HB was hot stuff.

That should be an accurate bbl!

very nice , i prefer steel as well and like the old rugers too , i prefer the mkI-II-III , but then ive never had occasion to hold the mkIV , it looks really nice with more of a 1911 grip than the older rugers , i think your going to be pleased

Advertising lit calls it the "22/45", and the grip angle is indeed meant to copy the 1911 angle. The big selling point for me though was still the left hand friendly feature. Besides an ambi safety, the mag release can be reversed.

Plus there's a ton of aftermarket stuff to pile on. After it's shot in, I'm considering a drop-in adjustable trigger group.

I can do a decent trigger on revolvers, but I steer clear of messing with automatics. SW

Somewhere buried in my safe I have Mk II heavy barrel. I may have to dig it out
and play with it soon.
