Ruger’s 22 Charger Takedown Pistol

    On day one of SHOT I stopped by Ruger and took a look at their newest guns and triggers.  Of course the most popular gun of the day – the one I and one of the great guys at Ruger stood and waited awhile to take a look at – was the Ruger 22 Charger Takedown Pistol, which proved incredibly simple to slide apart and back together again. After having tried this one out at Industry Day at the Range I have to say it’s an enjoyable pistol to shoot, and there’s just something fun about the whole together/apart/together/apart process.


    From Ruger:

    “The Ruger® 22 Charger™ pistol is back with enhanced features and a new 22 Charger™ Takedown model. First introduced in 2007, the 22 Charger™ pistol became a favorite for .22 LR pistol shooters and plinkers alike. The new 22 Charger™ pistol offers improved ergonomics, new features and the new BX-15™ magazine. The Takedown model has all the features of the standard model plus it employs the very popular quick disconnect feature found on the full sized 10/22 Takedown® rifle that allows the firearm to be taken down quickly and easily.”
