First introduced in 2007, the 22 Charger pistol became a favorite for .22 LR pistol shooters and plinkers alike. Now the Ruger 22 Charger pistol is back with improved ergonomics, new features, and the BX-15 magazine. The Charger's cold hammer-forged barrel results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity and easy cleaning. The barrel is threaded with a 1/2"-28 pattern that accepts most suppressors, flash hiders, and the factory-installed thread protector. The BX magazine is the perfect height when shooting prone with the included bipod or from the bench. A factory-installed Picatinny rail provides ample room for numerous types of optics from scopes to red-dot sights. The A2-style pistol grip can be easily changed out for any MSR grip. The Takedown model quickly and easily breaks down into two sections for convenient storage and transport. A hard plastic carrying case is included.
