Introducing the New Mark III™ Hunter Model Pistol
January 14, 2009
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) introduces a new .22 autoloading pistol: the 4-1/2 inch Ruger Mark III™ Hunter. The Mark III Hunter combines all the advantages of the Ruger Mark III pistol with performance-enhancing features.
The New Ruger Mark III Hunter features a stainless steel frame and a 4-1/2 inch target-crowned, fluted bull barrel. The Mark III Hunter also features checkered Cocobolo grips, a quick and easy-to-find V-notch rear sight blade, and a HiViz® front sight with six interchangeable LitePipes™. The 38 ounce gun has an overall length of 8-3/4 inches.
The magazine release button on all Mark III pistols is located to the left side of the grip, behind the trigger guard. The ejection port has been contoured and the bolt ears are tapered. All Mark III Hunter pistols are drilled and tapped to accept Weaver-style scope base adapters, included at no extra cost, to mount today's advanced optics. The Mark III pistols also feature a visible loaded chamber indicator, unobtrusive internal lock and magazine disconnect to meet sales requirements in some states.
The lighter-weight, fluted target barrel and high visibility sights give the New Ruger Mark III Hunter a new level of rimfire performance in the field. The new eye-catching Ruger Mark III Hunter pistol balances comfortably in the hand and sets a new standard for precision in short barreled, small-bore hunting pistols.
