RUGER CHARGER 22 REVIEW VIDEO

RUGER CHARGER 22 OVERVIEW

The original Ruger 10/22 rifle was released in 1964, and since then, it’s become one of the most popular Ruger firearms to date. The Charger 22 pistol version, with a 15-round magazine, a bipod that can be extended to nine inches, and Picatinny rails for mounting of accessories, is the perfect plinking rifle. Its pistol grip is interchangeable, but the standard one is great for most hands. The memory grooves help your hand stay in the perfect position for accuracy, shot after shot, while the grip flares give your hand a comfortable resting place.

CHARGER 22 REVIEW – HANDGUNSMAG.COM

Trigger pull is about four pounds and the slack is minimal. This is a great plinking pistol, but it’s also perfect for small game and varmints at a close distance. The Ruger Charger 22 makes a great companion for fun and functionality.

“The rig brings a whole new element to small game hunting, and I commend Ruger for its unique design features and for bringing the Charger out just in time for the early varmint season.” (1)

CHARGER 22 FEATURES & BENEFITS

Ruger 10/22 semi-auto action

  • Use the “guts” of the one of the most popular and best-selling firearms in history.

Threaded barrel for suppressors

  • The Ruger Charger 22 has a hammer-forged barrel providing precise handling and great accuracy. It’s easy to clean, has excellent longevity, and fits most flash hiders and suppressors.

Replaceable A2 pistol grip

  • The standard A2-style grip is easy to get used to right out of the box, but it’s easy to change out for an MSR grip if you prefer.

Picatinny rail

  • The factory Picatinny rail is roomy enough for red-dot sights, scopes, and other attachments.

Adjustable bipod

  • The adjustable bipod offers steady sighting and improved accuracy on an already impeccably accurate handgun.

Uses all 10/22 magazines

  • The BX-15 magazine has a 15-round capacity. It’s the perfect length for shooting from the bench or with the included bipod. You can get 10-round models if you prefer the smaller capacity, and after-market 25 round mags too.

RUGER CHARGER 22 TAKEDOWN FOR SALE

A nice thing about the Charger Takedown model is that it ships in a hard-sided case, making it look very James Bond-esque and official. As with the non-takedown model, reliability and accuracy are both on point. It comes with a bipod, Picatinny rail, and 15-round magazine capacity.

RUGER CHARGER TAKEDOWN REVIEW

The Ruger Charger Takedown is as lightweight as the non-takedown version, and the trigger pull and grip comfort are excellent. Out of the box, you won’t need much instruction to set it up and start shooting. It feels familiar right away, is a great compact companion, and won’t let you down when it comes to target shooting or plinking. The AR-15 style pistol grips allow for easy interchangeability, and the threaded barrel makes it convenient for those who like to shoot with suppressors.

“All in all, it’s a very handy, 10-inch barreled, 3.2 pound, .22 semi-automatic pistol that takes all the 10/22 accessories as far as the receiver and the magazines go, that you’ve come to be familiar with on the 10/22 rifle platform.”(2)

RUGER CHARGER SILENCER FOR SALE

Within the last few years, Ruger released its first suppressor, featuring the best materials in an advanced design, giving you a lightweight, compact silencer with supreme silencing capability. The Ruger Silent-SR is a .22 LR sound suppressor that adds the sound reduction you need without the added weight and inconvenience you don’t.

RUGER CHARGER SILENCER REVIEW

The Ruger Silent-SR is only 5 ⅜ inches long and weighs in at six ounces. It’s the perfect companion for your Ruger Charger 22 because it doesn’t add a lot of length or weight to a pistol you already hope to keep as compact as possible. Among effective sound reduction is the ability to easily remove and clean the silencer. Ruger used a titanium tube, stainless steel baffles and muzzle mount, and an aluminum rear cap. These maximize strength and durability, so the silencer is functional and attractive.

“The Silent-SR is engineered and manufactured with rugged materials, providing rimfire shooters with a silencer that offers outstanding sound suppression, simple maintenance and legendary Ruger reliability.”(3)

RUGER CHARGER 22 - LAST WORD

For a compact, lightweight pistol built on the 10/22 platform you know and love, the Ruger Charger 22 and all of its variations is the perfect choice. They combine the accuracy and reliability you’ve come to expect from Ruger with the fun of a handgun.
