New Ruger Mark IV Bill Ruger 100 Year Limited Edition
I've had my eye on these for a while, but Davidson's was always showing them to be "Allocated". (i.e. hard to get). Monday I was having my morning coffee and I saw they were showing they had 10 in stock. I immediately ordered one. Within 10 minutes they were all gone. They sold all 10 they had in stock in less than 10 minutes.
My FFL called me yesterday to tell me it had come in. Great service from Davidson's. 27 hours from when I clicked the mouse on, "Accept Offer", to when my FFL rang my phone.
The gun is simply beautiful. Without question the nicest Ruger pistol I own. The finish on both the grips and the knife handle is so smooth, it's as if they were dipped in glass. The satin finish on all of the Stainless Steel is beautifully done. I'm almost going to be afraid to shoot the thing it's so nice! Notice I said almost.
I love the target sights. Nice and clear. The sharp, square front blade fits nicely into the nice square rear notch. I noticed some slight differences on this Limited Edition Model. The rear of the bolt has the Ruger emblem filled in black enamel where it has been laser etched. Much like the emblem on the grips and knife. Also, the takedown button is in matching Stainless Steel, and not black like on the Hunter Models. Bill Ruger's signature is deeply laser etched on one side of the slab sided barrel. And "1916-2016... 100 YEARS" on the other side.
It has just enough bling. But not so much as to look gaudy. The knife is simply beautiful. It alone was worth the added cost over the standard Hunter Model. Mine is #721 Of 1,000, so they're coming to the end of the run. The way these things are selling they'll be all gone in no time. So anyone who wants one had better act quickly. If you do you will not be disappointed.

Gorgeous piece...congrats on being able to snag one.
Word of warning: if you take the grip panels off, the little spring, detent, and plastic housing that you'll find laying on the table comprise the mag ejector. They will fall out without warning and don't appear on the exploded parts view in the owners manual.
The parts necessary to remove and replace the mag disconnect haven't appeared yet for the Mark IV but I expect that Tandemcross, Volquartson, and others will have them available soon. Yanking the disconnect on the Mark III improved the trigger immensely.
