    I've only had my Ruger 10 22 Charger THREE WEEKS now, and what did I do?? I Chunked out the factory Trigger Assembly... Chunked out the 4x28 scope, Chunked out the wood stock.

    Now it's this... And I love it

    Composite Stock, 2-7 x 32 P4 Sniper Scope, Hornet BRTR Trigger Assembly. To top it off, I have a Carbon Fiber Barrel on the way... with a Stainless Steel Muzzle Brake. I should be able to nip the nads off a flea at 100 yards. (we'll see this weekend)

    Crazy. I like it. How about a Black Dog 50-rnd drum?

    You think that will be accurate out to 100 yards?

    It needs some neon lights on the bottom.

    I love the way it looks, does rugar make a stock like that, that will accept a folding stock?

    Probably not, but it'll be fun trying. I can keep a 1.5"-2" group at 50 yards pretty easy.

    Blackhawk makes the stock. Ruger doesn't have much in the way of custom accessories but there's tons of after-market stuff available.

    +100, Bayonet needed. It may be just me but I liked the old stock better. What I like doesn't matter cause that is yours.

    OK, I'm back from the gun range...

    Once I got the scope dialed in, it was splitting hairs at 50 yards. TWO things I don't like! The 25 round magazines with the plastic feed lips are a POS. It would not feed properly... at all. It jammed every shot. The other thing is the polymer stock. It's very light so it recoils more making fast follow up shots difficult. And, the magazines are harder to plug in & remove.

    The Charger makes a good group at 75 yards. Those 75 yard targets are 2" center ring. The 50 yard targets are 1" center ring.

    I sighted the scope at 75 yards on the barcode on the lower right target. It 's a nice group! It's a sweet shooting 22...

    Thanks Jack! I don't know about making a 100 yards, you'll notice there was a fairly large spread from 50 to 75 yards. I'm not even sure a .22 LR can reach out that far with any degree of accuracy. I will give it a try though. The century mark is the "gold standard" for long-range pistol shooting. I know my 44 Magnum is pushing its limit at 75 yards, but once in awhile I can make a 100 yard knock-down with it.
