First Look: New Ruger 22 Charger Pistol & 22 Charger Takedown

Ruger_22_Charger_Pistol_FRuger's widely popular 22 Charger pistol will once again be available to shooters. Ruger has announced that it is introducing a re-engineered version of its 22 Charger pistol as well as an all-new 22 Charger Takedown model.

The redesigned 22 Charger pistol features a 10-inch rifled barrel threaded with a 1/2"-28 thread pattern to accommodate most muzzle accessories. The new pistol weighs just under 3.25 pounds and has an overall length of 19.25 inches. It sports a brown laminated stock with a standard A2 style pistol grip, allowing the shooter to customize the platform with an assortment of grips. The pistol's matte black receiver also incorporates a factory-installed Picatinny rail for mounting optics.


The new 22 Charger Takedown model includes all of the features of the standard model but also utilizes the same quick disconnect feature found on Ruger's full size 10/22 Takedown rifle. Takedown is accomplished by pushing the recessed lever in the forend, twisting the sub-assemblies and pulling them apart. The Takedown model features a Green Mountain laminate stock and comes in a custom hard case for transport.



Both models also come with one of Ruger's new BX-15 magazines, a 15-round version of the BX-25 magazine, and an included bipod.

The re-engineered Ruger 22 Charger pistol and 22 Charger Takedown pistol are available for $309 and $409, respectively.
