Most of the stores I called had ONE model of the Ruger Mark IV I was looking for, but at the show I was able to find 4 or 5.
what did you end up with?

Can make up my mind on which one I want, so I was hoping to decide by feeling them since one of the main difference between them is weight and size
Also trying to decide between a Glock 19, 17 and 34, but I do not expect those being an issue to find around
Top one is a 22/45 which is a 1911 style grip (my preference)
Bottom 2 use normal ruger grips

The barrel you choose is more important as you can swap out the frame fairly easily.
I have the all black mkiv 22/45 lite. Had it a little over a year and havnt used it yet.

Also be aware there is a recall on the safety for early serial #'s. Ruger sent me a box to put it in and they sent it back to me fixed with an extra mag.
