Ruger 22 Charger Takedown

Ruger has made an easy-to-carry gun even easier to carry with a go-anywhere polymer stock.

Today, the company announced the introduction of the polymer 22 Charger Takedown pistol, along with a polymer-stocked version of the traditional 22 Charger pistol.

The polymer-stocked pistol has the same features as the laminate-stocked Charger, weighing only 3.1 pounds and having a 10-inch barrel. The overall length of the gun is 19.25 inches.


The barrel is equipped with a 1/2"-28 threat, allowing the addition of many different muzzle accessories. The pistol also has an A2-style pistol grip, which gives users customization opportunities. There is also a factory-installed Picatinny rail.


The polymer-stocked Ruger 22 Charger Takedown weighs 3.2 pounds and retains all of the features of the standard Takedown model. The pistol comes apart by pushing down the takedown lever and then twisting the two assemblies apart. The two assemblies can then fit into a specially designed hard case that is included with the gun.


Both pistols come with either the BX-1 10-round magazine or the BX-15 15-round magazine, which is designed off the BX-25 magazine popular with Charger shooters due to its ability to give ground clearance when shooting the pistol from the included bipod.

The BX-15 is compatible with all other Ruger 22 Charger pistols, as well as all factory 10/22 rifles.

The suggested retail price for the standard 22 Charger is $309, while the Takedown model will retail for $409.


The standard Charger will continue to be available in brown laminate as well, along with the Takedown Charger in green mountain laminate.
