Innovative Arms Integrally Suppressed Ruger MKIV

Innovative Arms just announced something that is on the top of my want/wish list. The silencer and firearms manufacturer has upgraded their line of integrally suppressed firearms to include the new Ruger MKIV rimfire pistol. Using a monocore baffle stack, the team at Innovative Arms has included the  seamless upper/barrel/tube design that makes for a beautiful pistol that is undoubtedly ultra-quiet.

Apparently only a handful of the new suppressed MKIV’s have made their way to distributors, however, in an email exchange with a company representative, they confirmed the new integral will be a permanent addition to the lineup.

This particular gun went to Linkous Auction Group, a dealer in Virginia who was nice enough to snap a few additional photos for us.

MKIV

 

Innovative Arms Ruger MKIV Integrallly Suppressed pistol (current specs/pricing):

  • MSRP: $1,154
  • Caliber: .22lr
  • Material: Stainless Steel Tube/Core
  • Finish: Black or Brushed Stainless
  • ONE PIECE CORE
  • USER SERVICEABLE
  • TOOL INCLUDED

As a brief refresher, one of the main benefits of the MKIV over the previous Ruger rimfire pistols is the easy takedown and field strip for cleaning.

Simple, one-button takedown for quick and easy field-stripping and proper chamber to muzzle cleaning.

A recessed button in the back of the frame allows the upper receiver to tilt up and off of the grip frame without the use of tools.

    This appears to be a MK IV, but Innovative’s website only offers MK II or MK III.

    • Graham2

      Yes it is a Mk IV, like the article says- it’s new.

      • Person

        And innovative!

  • DIR911911 .

    is that $1154 before or after the atf fees , stamps , license , and dirty looks ?

    • Art out West

      That is what I wondered as well. I bet the $1154 doesn’t include the $200 tax stamp. If that is the case, then I think the gun is overpriced.
      Still, it is very cool looking. I’d love to have one.

      • Duray

        Well the gun it’s built from carries an msrp of $529. A monocore rimfire suppressor like the Liberty Regulator has an msrp of $500. So for something like this, built in small quantities by a specialty shop, it doesn’t seem like an outrageous msrp.

    • Beardrdrambler

      Of course it’s not including the tax, that’s paid to the ATF not the manufacturer

    • Duray

      What fees and license are you talking about? I have two NFA items and have never paid for a license or fees. It’s a one-time $200 tax stamp. That’s it. If you’d rather not own awesome toys , that’s a different issue.

  • Chris Schmidt

    As a neighborhood squirrel, I disapprove of this message.

    • M.M.D.C.

      Don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing.

    ===========================
    What took you so long, Ruger? Over the years I’ve come to really hate my old 22/45. The reassembly process is always a major chore: “Invert the pistol at a 45 degree angle. Press trigger and stand on head. Place left foot in right rear pocket, and assume upright position…” I’d rather wash a bobcat.

    • AndyHasky

      Market forces I think, they never had to innovate cause they mostly had the market cornered. I don’t think it was coincidence that the mkIV came out not too soon after the S&W Victory.

      • Jared Vynn

        Research and development costs as well probably.

        • Sunshine_Shooter

          And the S&W Victory forced them to spend that money.

          • Jared Vynn

            Which gave us the mk IV and victory as two awesome choices for 22lr pistols. Competition is a good thing.

          • junkman

            See comment above. The Mk IV was already in the works.

          • AndyHasky

            it may have been in the works, but I have no doubt the victory kicked them into high gear to get it to market.

      • junkman

        Think about it. It takes years of R&D for a major design change.Then all the machinery has to be made, tested tweaked. Prototypes are made, tested, refined. You just don’t snap your fingers & almost overnight do a dramatic design change. I own a Mk III Hunter & do not find it at all troublesome to clean, but the Mk IV will definitely be easier. Going to add a Mk IV 22/45 Lite when I find the color I want. Tried the so called Victory, didn’t like it.

        • AndyHasky

          I held the Victory in a gun store and man it did not feel good

          • junkman

            Yea, it felt awkward & unbalanced, didn’t point well. It also looks like a cheesy gun, lacks character. Also has already been recalled

  • Holdfast_II

    Needz! Moar! Railz!

    Seriously, that’s cool. Since I can’t have a threaded barrel (ugh), I am planning on having a local shop take a Mark IV 22/45 Tactical and do the same thing for me. Was planning on waiting a bit in case the HPA actually passes or Trump at least reverses the Reg changes from last summer.

    • iksnilol

      Just start it now, if the HPA passes you’ll get the tax stamp money back. And by the time you’re done waiting for the tax stamp, the HPA would’a done passed if it’s ever gonna pass.

      • Juggernaut

        Just like Drumpf shelved his Yuge! tax cuts for us plebs the HPA will be DOA

    • Juggernaut

      Isn’t it great how us tax donkey serfs have to get permission from the Sheriff of Nottingham for something that was supposedly a right granted by the US Constitution?

      • Duray

        The Constitution doesn’t “grant” rights.

        • JackGalt

          Nope…just simply protects the obviously god-given rights we were born with.

      • Tom_EE

        The 2nd Amendment, and the rest of the Bill of Rights clearly and concisely enumerate the rights that we have as free men. They are rights that that our government must NOT infringe upon, nor limit for any reason. Obviously, especially in the case of liberals, they believe our Constitution is a “living” document, open to their individual interpretation that strays from the original meaning. I will agree with these “progressives” that our Constitution is a “living” document, but ONLY that it be changed by way of the standards set forth in the ratification process of Constitutional Amendments.

        Furthermore, these progressive judges, legislators and executives, place themselves above our Founding Fathers, granting themselves “super-Constitutional” powers. In doing so, they clearly violate their oaths to uphold our Constitution, and must be treated as the traitors they truly are, and hung for treason!

    • jeremy johnson

      you know you can remove trustees with an amendment. Do your paperwork then add them back.

  • NOUNBELIEVER

    remember High Standard pistols with Olympic competition in mind….both horizontal sides of barrel had vents to release gas out ward ….thread muzzle of barrel, cut side vents , muzzle cap over the vents , 90 degree elbow below the barrel…diverts gas into a sleeve under the barrel…gas travels u shaped path below barrel…vents out the froward end away from shooter….some welding to pistol frame to square the area at 90 degrees to barrel…set square or round stud or simple shelf locator of suppressor rear to mate against, over ?…locator pin / stud, screw muzzle cap onto barrel threads and tighten to press suppressor back against frame to maintain position with least complications…slots in threaded barrel…muzzle cap covers slots allows gas to pass below into underbarrel tube, vent gas forward away from shooter but under the muzzle of the barrel……possible valving to vent access below to give one way gas travel…M1 Garand muzzle cap style ?

  • A Guest

    If they make a 22/45 version of this I’d be down to get one. It’s pricy, but the integrally suppressed .22 pistol is my fetish

  • Ark

    Unf. New York’s worst nightmare. I need it.

  • NOUNBELIEVER

    ambidextrous magazine release, please…a 4 inch heavy barrel with target sights for field carry….5.5 inch just too bulky….think more of a hiker / hunter than an Olympic games shooter…my hope is a 22/45 stainless steel with all controls ambidextrous..and a 4 inch barrel…will settle for MK V… 4′ heavy barrel with ambi magazine release…

    • Gun Fu Guru

      Do you really want a 4″ barrel? The barrel is already as short as it can be. (What you are really talking about is a shorter silencer.)

      • NOUNBELIEVER

        SHORTER OVERALL LENGTH PACKAGE….STANDARD WOULD BE STAY WITHIN THE FACTORY LENGTH….
        THE 4 INCH BARREL PISTOL IS MY CHOICE FOR A COMFORTABLE CARRY PISTOL WHILE HIKING, WORKING, ETC..NOT A SILENCED OR SUPPRESSED PISTOL…..5.5 BARRELS REQUIRE MORE ROOM….THE STANDARD RUGER WITH ITS SKINNY BARREL ALWAYS SEEMS TOO EASILY MOVED WHEN DOING SIGHTED SHOOTING. THE ISRAELI NEEDS HAVE SETTLED THE NEED FOR A SUPPRESSOR…NOT NEEDED NORMALLY WITH .22 L. R. ….EVEN MULTIPLE SHOTS GO UNNOTICED IN MOST CITY ENVIRONMENTS…
        I BASE MY PERSONAL FAVORITE CARRY .22 L. R. ON THE STAR MODEL F HAMMER FIRED PISTOL….AND CURSE THE THREE YOUG THUGS THAT ENTERED MY FORD VAN IN DELAND FLORIDA AND STOLE MY SERIES 80 MK IV COLT .45 ACP GOVERNMENT STAINLESS STEEL PISTOL, MY STAR MODEL F, AND MY WESTERN CUTLERY FIELD KNIFE FIXED BLADE 4.5 KNIFE WITH DELRIN GRIP PLATES AND ALUMINUM BUTT CAP …MAY THEY SPEND YEARS IN PRISON FOR THIS EARLY THIEVERY THEY DID…

        • Gun Fu Guru

          You do know that the pistol in the pictures is integrally suppressed? Also, you don’t need to capitalize every word that you type. It looks ridiculous, is hard to read, makes you seem foolish.

          • Sgt. Stedenko

            …or medicated.

          • Dan

            Or in need of medication

        • gerald brennan

          WOW, THAT WAS REALLY LOUD!!!!!!!

          • NOUNBELIEVER

            SORRY…LOUD ? OH, POSSIBLY CAPITALS ? …MY EYES ARE NOT SO YOUNG ANYMORE…EASIER TO SEE ….MY SORRIES TO ANYONE SO OFFENDED.

  • Gun Fu Guru

    I’d buy five if they did it for the 22/45 model.

    • AndyHasky

      they aren’t swappable?

      • Gun Fu Guru

        I have the older generation ones. You can get them to fit; however, you have to take a Dremel to it to remove some metal around the front pin.

        • Sunshine_Shooter

          So, you won’t buy five of them because you have to Dremel it out a bit? Something you apparently already know how to do and probably won’t screw it up?

          • Gun Fu Guru

            #1. I haven’t done it, but I know it cane be done.
            #2. I have shot two of them that have been done, but they lose their reliability after it.

  • Matt

    What is the barrel length on the integral suppressed?

  • Fred Fagan

    I have a few Innovative Arms suppressors and have dealt directly with the owner on numerous occasions. He makes a great product and stands behind his work. As far as an integrally suppressed weapon, I really don’t have a need for one. His earlier model Apex can be used on .22 LR, .22 Mag and 17 HMR. I prefer using that since it works on all of my weapons with threaded barrels in the above calibers. I can use adapters with my Innovative Arms Deception 7.62 and Shepherd .45 on about any other caliber that I want. Great products.
