Ruger .22 Charger Pistols Now With Polymer Stocks

posted on September 1, 2015

Ruger has announced the addition of polymer stock models to the recently re-engineered .22 Charger and .22 Charger Takedown pistol line. The line was first introduced in 2007 and re-engineered in 2014.

The main difference between the polymer pistol and the laminate version is weight, with the .22 Charger Pistol weighing in at just 3.1 pounds, and the Takedown at 3.2 pounds.

Models ship with either the BX-1, 10-round magazine or the BX-15 magazine, a 15-round version of the BX-25 magazine, which is the perfect height when shooting with the included bipod from either the prone position or from a bench. The BX-15 is compatible with all factory original 10/22 rifles, SR-22 rifles, 22 Charger pistols, .22 LR Ruger American Rimfire rifles and .22 LR Ruger 77/22 rifles.
