    I just received my new Ruger Charger this week, and introduced just a few minor modifications before taking it out for a try...

    - Smith & Wesson Performance Optics Red Dot Sight
    - Trigger job from Great West Gunsmithing (Gun Doc at Welcome to Great West Gunsmithing)
    - Mo-Buff Delrin Buffer Pin
    - Power Custom Charging Handle
    - Power Custom Extended Magazine Release

    I took it out this morning with a box of Federal Auto Match rounds. It took only 2 10-round magazines to get it sighted in just right at 25 yards, and from there it was just center-punching target after target. I think Ruger's 10-inch barrel is an excellent length for some very accurate shooting out of the 10/22 platform. This Charger is right in step with my Mark III Hunter...hard to tell which is more accurate. I'm impressed with the Charger!

    They really are great *pistols*.

    I can shoot minute of bowling pin (hanging @ 100 yards) shot after shot after shot, all the live long day using a little Burris pistol scope. Great fun!

    :D

    Finally...Some Pics

    I know most of these Chargers look pretty much the same, but I'm content with just a few upgrades...

    Mine with just a Clark trigger shot pretty good at 50 and 100 yards using CCI minimags.
    I put a 4-12X AO Bushnell rifle scope on it, and shot it from the bipods with just my hand under the grip.
    It would change impact from bench to prone on the ground..........definitely reacting to different friction on the pods.
    A shorter bbl and or a break might have minimized POI shift.

    Alas, a buddy wanted it and I was not pleased with the plastic trigger housing, wasn't going to try and snag an old rifle and swap them.

    Mainly bought it for my kids, who didn't shoot it at all.

    Of course now my youngest wants one :(

    I will post some pics in a few days. My mods are delrin buffer, bolt release mod, volquarsten target hammer, front loop strap instead of bipod, magpul rail sling attachment, magpul ms2 sling, truglo 2x red dot, and blackhawk knoxx stock. Not meant for tactical, just taking some tactical parts for quick shooting. Very accurate and fun!!!

    My pair of chargers. Same as last post (january) but now sporting 1x open reflex red dots. I also added a side swivel mount for the slings. Actually MS2 copies I believe.

    What does one of those modified chargers weigh? Needs 1 more mod, a threaded barrel.

    I don't have a way to weigh mine. I have small scale and can tell you that the knoxx stock weighs 319g compared to 397g of the factory stock. Converted to ounce that would mean the knoxx stock is about 2.78 oz lighter. The sling and sling attachment weighs 208g. Hopefully this helps...

    Stock is 3.5 lbs so there wasn't a significant change. Thanks.

    It is a function and aesthetics for me. I like the way the trigger is closer to grip on the axiom

    Looks great, I kept mine stock because I like the "Pirate gun" look. :)
