Our latest NRA Gun of the Week is Ruger’s .22 Takedown Charger pistol, which is based on the Takedown version of the Ruger 10/22 rifle. It features a brown- and green-laminated wood stock, and shares a separate, polymer AR-style pistol grip and a 10" barrel with 1/2-28 muzzle threads protected with an included cap. Overall length is 19¼" and weight is 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. undefined

For a complete rundown of the pistol, its parts and capabilities, watch Sr. Executive Editor Brian Sheetz in the video above from the NRA Headquarters range.
