The Mark III is a fine pistol and will surely outlive me - lol
That said, NOTHING beats the Mark IV super-simple takedown and reassembly. That alone makes it the better purchase IMHO. I always clean any gun I use at the range when I get home but I wait till I have the patience stored up to disassemble, clean and then put the beastie back together.
That's what I've heard about the two models as well. I've always wanted one, but it was always a type of gun that was way down on my wanted list. The only reason I'm considering one now is to shoot Steel Challenge with lol. It just looks like way too much fun.
I hear ya on the disassembly. I clean my AR's every time I shoot them, but I usually don't do it the same day, or within the following week. I hate cleaning them but I force myself to, and it's usually the day before a 3 gun match lol. My shotgun gets cleaned maybe every 500 rounds or so. The Benelli M2 is about as painful to do a full cleaning on as an AR is.
I'm definitely looking forward to that Ruger though! I've actually still never shot one.
