Ruger 10/22 Charger Take-Down

Ruger's Model 10/22 turned 50 last year, and Senior Executive Editor Brian Sheetz wrote an insightful story on Bill Ruger's landmark design, which you really should read. But Ruger has been introducing a dizzying array of new models and variants on its tried-and-true platforms for 2015—including the 10/22. Sheetz took the the NRA Technical Test Range (why wait in line at Media Day?) with the new Ruger 10/22 Charger Take-Down, and while he loves most things Ruger, this new handgun was a real standout. Remember the ingenious barrel-nut system of the 10/22 Take-Down? It has now been applied to a laminated wood-stock Charger pistol, one that takes Ruger's well-designed AR-style polymer pistol grip—or scan be changed out for your favorite AR pistol grip. With a supplied bipod and the new BX-15 magazine (ever try to shoot a 25 rounder off a bipod?) you have a really fun new rimfire that breaks down for easy transport. See what Ruger aficionado Brian Sheetz had to say about it on the range here.
