Received a Mark IV Target for Christmas and have been so happy with it that when my wife gave me the green-light for a gun on my 60th Birthday I went out and bought a Mark IV 22/45. Why not right? Am not going to get to play with it until my Birthday on Wednesday but of course I took it apart before putting it away. I noticed that unlike my Target Model there's no rubber bushing on the frame lug of the 22/45. I referenced the owner's manual dwgs and there wasn't one shown so I assume this is correct?

Anyone ever bother to put in a rubber bushing on the synthetic framed Mark IV's or not really needed? Can't wait to shoot on Wednesday!

Thanks,
Eric

The polymer frame has enough flex that it can keep tension on the receiver without needing a bushing.

Nice looking pair of pistols!

Never would have occurred to me. Yet now that you've said it I get it. Thank you!

I inquired the same question with Ruger. As TE stated, their response was , "none needed"! (y)

Congrats on your MkIV Target and 22/45!! :giggle:

I had to put a washer on mine so that I could get my compensator to line up correctly. With the nut that comes with it a washer is not needed.

Volquartsen sells them for the Mark IV. I bought a couple for my stainless Target model and they seem to last a bit longer than the factory part. I’m not even sure they’re necessary for the metal-framed guns.
