This is scary.  I need to check my 22/45 and send it in if necessary.

It's only the MK IV's that are being recalled as far as I know. I purchased the hunter and installed the Volquartsen kit. They want all aftermarket accessories removed so I'm not going to send mine in. I did check it and could not create the problem.

I have been looking at getting one of these.

I'm not surprised by the safety issue, just look at what you need to do to field strip it, it's like the hokey-pokey with dry firing and magazine insertions, not safe at all.

I think it's all because of the stupid magazine disconnect.

The only safety on a gun is in between your ears, everything else is just a mechanical device that will kill if it fails.

Unfortunately manufacturers have to cover their liability instead of make a proper gun.

I have a Mark IV Hunter... it is a damn fine pistol.  I recently received the notice from Ruger that it is affected by the recall and they are asking me to send it in.  Seems like I am cursed on these recalls.  I bought a FN SCAR 17, and it was recalled for a defective bolt.... and now I am on my 3rd Savage .338 Lapua... the damn scope rail keeps coming loose!
If you're gonna fight, fight like you are the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.   ... and brother its starting to rain.
