Southport, CT – (Ammoland.com) – Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) proudly announces the re-engineered 22 Charger™ pistol with enhanced features and introduces the new 22 Charger Takedown pistol. First introduced in 2007, the 22 Charger pistol became a favorite for .22 LR pistol shooters and plinkers alike.

Weighing just under 3.25 pounds, the new 22 Charger pistol has an overall length of 19.25 inches and features a 10-inch precision rifled, threaded barrel with a 1/2″-28 thread pattern to accept most popular muzzle accessories. The redesigned brown laminated stock sports a standard A2-style pistol grip, which makes the platform easy to customize with the MSR grip of your choice. The matte black receiver features a factory installed Picatinny rail which provides ample space for a variety of optics, from scopes to red-dot sights. Like the original 22 Charger, these new pistols are built on the legendary Ruger® 10/22® platform and offer the same proven reliability.

The new 22 Charger Takedown model has all the features of the standard model, plus the very popular quick disconnect feature found on the full sized 10/22 Takedown® rifle. This feature allows the firearm to be taken down quickly and easily by simply pushing the recessed lever in the forend, twisting the subassemblies, and pulling them apart. The 22 Charger Takedown features a Green Mountain laminate stock and comes in a custom hard case for easy transport to the range.

Also new and included with both models is the BX-15™ magazine, a 15-round version of the very popular BX-25® magazine. The BX-15 is the perfect height when shooting with the included bipod from either the prone position or from a bench. The BX-15 fits all 10/22, 22 Charger, Ruger 77/22® and Ruger American Rimfire® rifles chambered in .22 LR. The bipod (included with both models) easily attaches to the forend.

    I was going to buy a new Charger pistol on Sunday,but the pistol grip soured me on the gun.The grip is a hollow piece of cheap plastic that was very loosely attached.We could not tighten it either.So much for reengineering.

    Re-engineer is a gun manufacturing term that means: We found ways to cut corners in the manufacturing process that makes our products cheaper to produce thereby increasing profits. This has been the reality at Ruger ever since the Old Man died and the bean counters took over.
