    Thumbs down Ruger Mark 4

    IF you buy the Ruger mark 4, and you don't have hands like a grizzly bear paw, consider buying one of those finger charging rings. The slide snaps back so fast that I have skin missing and black and blue marks on both hands.
    They're all about $50 which I think is outrageous. And then they put sand in a Vaseline and charge you eight bucks for shipping and handling.

    I'm seriously thinking about getting one for my Mark III 22/45. I was debating which one when I saw this guy posted somewhere else by the creator.

    It's 3D printed, but supposedly works pretty well. Worth a try you think?
    I just love shooting.

    I have the Mark III's and you really need to be careful as it is a small bolt - not much to grab either... I didn't know of that item so i may consider it if no drilling involved.

    The one I posted slips on, and then you screw the cross together until snug. I haven't purchased yet myself, but it looks pretty easy.

    for 20 bucks and free shipping, I jumped on it to give it a try. Even better is you can use Paypal or Amazon pay to make it more secure.

    I guess I just don't see the "need" for this product. I have an MK II, MKIII Target and an MKIV .22/45 lite and have no issues using the ears on the rear of the bolt for charging. Do you guys have trouble?

    I have never got pinched but it is a strange action to do compared to a slide

    I do not need it, but the ring will make it easier, esp when I take the kids out to shoot it.

    I've handled Rugers twice at shops, contemplating adding one to the collection & I got bit both times, F that gun.
    Tact is just not saying true stuff. I'll pass.
