    22 45 mark 3 mags in a mark 4

    It's an easy fix. Just remove a little plastic from the base of the mag with a sharp knife or dremel.

    So I haven't looked at mags yet for my mark 4, are mark 3 mags cheaper?

    The cost is about the same <$29.99 ea. However I found an ebay seller offering the genuine Ruger 2-pack 22/45 (MPN 90646) for $32 shipped free.

    The Ruger manual states "The RUGER MARK IV uses the same 10-shot magazine as RUGER MARK III pistol.

    "The RUGER MARK IV uses 22/45 uses MARK IV 22/45 magazines only."

    "Only use correct RUGER magazines for Ruger MARK IV pistols in order to ensure proper feeding, functioning of the bolt stop and engagement of the magazine disconnect safety"

    Firearm Safety is ABSOLUTE!!

    Those mark 3 mags I bought fairly cheap. You can order replacemant base plates for the mark 3 mags. I'm decided to modify the baseplate instead of replacing.

    I have to modify MKII mags to fit in my old Ruger standard pistols.... ok, MKI pistols, but donít tell anyone I called them that. Just a matter of reversing the thumb button follower assist and trimming the base plate. Iíve converted a dozen with zero issues.
    Iíve seen the 22/45 mags go pretty cheap at gun mag warehouse btw.

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    The mag bodies are the same, the baseplate is different.
