Turnbull Restoration has announced new additions to the Turnbull Finished Line of firearms. The Finished Line is an ongoing series of historically significant and beloved firearms that hold a special place in the hearts of all firearms enthusiasts and collectors.
The new additions are for the popular Turnbull Ruger Mark IV Pistol. The Turnbull Mark IV was first introduced in 2016 as a follow up to the Turnbull Mark III, which had sold out in days. The new options being added today are target quality wood grips (with and without threaded barrel) and a threaded barrel (with and without wood grips).
“Starting with the first Ruger Mark I to roll off the line, this pistol has been an American classic,” remarked CEO and Founder Doug Turnbull. “Since our first special edition we have sought to improve on Ruger’s amazing target pistol by adding the Turnbull touch. That is our intent with the Finished Line – to take new production of these beloved firearms and make them heirloom quality.”
The Turnbull Ruger Mark IV will feature Turnbull’s polish and unique case coloring on the receiver and barrel. The finish is applied using Turnbull’s traditional methods for finish quality and durability. The wood grips are target quality that wrap around the front strap and have finger grooves for shooting stability. The threaded barrel has the industry standard ½”-28 threads for suppressor applications.
Serial numbers and other stampings will be consistent with the style used on the originals with the addition of the Turnbull “Turning Bull” mark on the barrel. Each Turnbull Mark IV will be in .22 LR and come with 2 magazines. The trigger and other controls are factory blued. The new Turnbull Mark IV Pistols all incorporate the new easier take down that Ruger has engineered.
The pistols will have a 5.5 inch barrel that will be available with or without threading for a suppressor. The barrel is case color finished using Turnbull’s traditional bone and charcoal method for the best and most durable finish.
“The story of the Ruger Mark I, II III and IV is the story of a great American arms maker,” added Turnbull of the Ruger target pistol series. “The Mark IV is the newest and most modern of them, but still retains the look, feel and accuracy of the original Mark I. Adding in the suppressor threading and target style wooden grips only makes it better and offers out a new set of options for this amazing pistol.”
The Turnbull Ruger Mark IV is available from Turnbull Restoration. MSRP on the base Turnbull Mark IV featuring signature case color finish is $595. The grips can be added for $50 and the threaded barrel adds $150 to the price. Customers should visit www.turnbullrestoration.com/markiv for more information and to order.
“Every one of us here at Turnbull recognize the shape and profile of the Ruger Mark series,” noted Turnbull. “The notion of making it our own with Turnbull’s unique touches puts a spring in our step. Offering the Turnbull Mark IV with a series of options allows our customers to get exactly the gun they want.”
