Last March I drove from Cheyenne to Cabela's in Sydney Nebraska, 100 miles each way. Looked at a Ruger Mark IV hunter and really liked it. Out of state so I couldn't just buy it and take it home. No gun stores in Cheyenne could get hold of one for me, including Sportsmans Warehouse. So I called Cabelas in Sydney, bought the gun over the phone, they shipped it to my local gunshop, who did the paperwork and I finally got the gun in early April. Before the weather got nice enough to take it to the range, i heard about the recall. Sent the SN to Ruger, sure enough my Mark IV was on the list for recall. Ruger would send a shipping box, In the meantime don't shoot it. Two months later I finally got the shipping box and sent the grip etc. back to Ruger. Rugers blurb said they'd have it fixed in about a week. They've had it about three weeks now, and haven't managed to get it back to me yet. I have lots of Ruger guns, pistols and rifles, and love them all. But this pistol I bought on 5 April and have not been able to shoot as of August 27 is a real pain in the butt (I wonder if I'll get to shoot it before the snow flies) and I'll think twice before buying another Ruger!
