Sturm, Ruger & Co. has a history of making special edition guns for various distributors. One of the companies that Ruger regularly works with on limited runs is Davidson’s. Well, the two companies have teamed up again to bring out three versions of the Mark IV 22/45 rimfire pistol with bold color options: green, purple and red.
These three new color options are anodized finishes that make the guns really stand out from the standard black finish of the base model pistol.
Other than the colorful appearances, the guns are standard Mark IV 22/45 pistols. They are chambered for the .22 LR cartridge, feed from 10-round magazines and have the grip shape of a classic 1911-style pistol. The guns are fitted with adjustable sights and a mounting rail for adding an optic.
As with many of the guns being made today, these Mark IV 22/45 Lite pistols have a threaded barrel for adding a suppressor. Ruger does include a screw on cap to protect the threads when a suppressor is not attached.
These guns are listed on GalleryOfGuns.com, a gun finding website run by Davidson’s, with a suggested retail price of $559 each. All of the guns are available to your local dealer if you decide you want to order one up.
