Editors' Picks—New for 2015: Ruger Charger Pistol

Ruger, taking two pages from its own successful playbook, has brought back the Charger pistol, based on the wildly popular 10/22 rifle action—this time offering it in a Takedown version based on the 10/22 Takedown rifle’s simple mechanism that allows quick separation of the barrel from the receiver. The Standard and Takedown Chargers feature brown- and green-laminated wood stocks, respectively, and share a separate, polymer AR-style pistol grip and a 10" barrel with 1/2-28 muzzle threads protected with an included cap. Overall lengths are 19¼" and weights are below 3 lbs., 4 ozs. A fore-end-mounted QD stud allows attachment of an included bipod, and the Standard model comes with a soft case while the Takedown comes with a hard case. ruger.com
