Ruger’s 22 Charger pistol series grew this week with the addition of two new models geared to buyers who are looking to add a pistol brace.
The two new .22LR-chambered Chargers both feature a rear-mounted Picatinny rail with integrated QD cup, making them “brace-ready” and easily customized. Both of these models accept additional muzzle accessories or suppressors as they come factory-threaded with a 1/2x28TPI pitch.
Based on Ruger’s tried-and-true 10/22 platform, they accept standard 10-shot rotary mags as well as extended BX-series bananas and ship with a single 15-round BX-15 mag, which the company says is ideal for shooting the Charger from the included bipod. They also have an integrated top-mounted pic rail for optics and red-dots.
The Ruger 22 Charger Takedown Lite with rear-mounted pic rail has an MSRP of $599 while the more standard model runs $349.
