ruger charger

Just bought a ruger charger last week. I was looking at a 10-22 take down but couldn't find one and I liked this better. Anybody else have one ?

I've had one for some time. Fun shooting it from the bench.

This was it when I first got it.

I've had one for a while. Fun gun, I find it surprisingly accurate. Swapped the barrel out for a threaded bull barrel for use with a can, and I use the Ruger 25 round magazines.

Ruger Chargers a super fun to shoot, but they are not for everyone. Some guys that have been shooting conventional handguns for years have a hard time adapting to the Ruger Charger. However us guys that have shot Speciality Pistols (T/C Contenders & Encores, Remington XP-100's and Savage Strikers) have long awaited for a handgun such as the Ruger Charger.

I recently Custom Built a Ruger Charger. I started out with a Factory Ruger Charger and did away with the parts I did not want, mainly the factory stock, barrel and trigger group. I replaced the factory trigger group with a Ruger Aluminum 10/22 Trigger Housing that had been sent to TT Shooter for one of his Precision Trigger Jobs that breaks like a glass rod at 1 3/4 lbs. For the Barrel I used a KIDD 10" Bead Blasted Stainless Bull Barrel. I then sent the Receiver, Scope Base and Aluminum Trigger Housing to Norrell's to have done in the Norrell's "Stainless" Moly Resin Finish (which actually matched the Bead Blasted Stainless KIDD Barrel fairly well.

My gunsmith buddy and I are in the process of building a Custom Ruger Charger Stock in which we are using a 10/22 Carbine Stock with the Pistol Grip and Buttstock removed and are attaching a T/C Contender Pistol Grip to it. With a little luck my Custom Stock will be done prior to our Indoor Bench Rest Competitions this winter.

In the meantime my Custom Ruger Charger is in a Tactical Innovations REBEL Charger Stock. Sitting on top of the Custom Ruger Charger is a Burris 3x12x LER Fine Plex PA Handgun Scope.

A couple weeks back I had it to the range and shot 10 - 5 shot groups at 100 yards from the bench. The overall average was right at 1 1/2" with the two best groups measuring .880" & .908" center to center.

Yep I really like my Ruger Charger.

If you want a really nice custom stock for your charger, there's a guy over on rimfirecentral by the username azguy who has done a bunch already, and does awesome work.

Here's a few samples of the quality of work he does.

Mine's not a charger, but it's got a nice trigger, is fun to shoot, and uses 10-22 magazines

Yes George makes some fantastic stocks, but too much for my budget. Actually George and I talked quite a bit a year or so ago when I started this Charger Project about adapting a T/C Contender Grip to a 10/22 / Charger Stock. I scrapped the whole idea at one time, got side tracked on other projects and then started in on it once again.

I've considered getting a Charger, but what exactly is the difference between the two models? Is it just a fired shell case? Why?

I never have figured out what the difference is between the two models.
