I had been intending on picking up a Ruger Charger for around maybe three years now. I knew I wanted to set it up with a brace so I started collecting the necessary parts that I might need. Ordered an adapter, bought a brace, a friend gave me a brand new trigger assembly off of his 10/22 because he purchased an upgraded one ... I took it apart and followed a Youtube video on how to slick up a trigger assembly, Someone threw away an old 10 round mag that I brought home and cleaned stuffed it full of rounds and flipped them out with my thumb to check for any visible issues. All this with no Charger or 10/22 in my goodie bag/ toy locker.
Well finally decided to make the move and pick one up. Yes now, when new and used guns are hard to find annywhere because of the covid scare. My LGS is a Ruger major account and happened to have one on the shelf. I paid them on the spot and filled out the paperwork then waited a long 48 hour time period for the background check to clear. Once home I proceeded to put together the goodies robbed the red dot off of my 22/45 and waited for the weekend to give her a whirl.
Why on Gods green earth did I wait so long...???
This little gun is a ball to shoot and quite accurate. It chugged along and ate up every ammo I put into it. Yes the 10 rounder worked flawless too.
Here are its first 4 rounds shot at 15 yards to see where the red dot was sighted... I made no changes and started shooting at broken pieces of clay on the 25 yard berm.

After this picture I added a riser under the red dot to make it more comfortable to shoot... no more craning my neck.

Major fun factor on this one. I later was chasing shotgun shells around on the 25 yard berm too. Loads of fun.

Congratulations on the build. Getting a Charger is high on my list. Had several chances last year and did not make the purchase. Now that things are crazy with shortages all over the place I wish I would have now. Rimfire shooting is a blast and a great way to practice. Yours came out to be a good shooter and nice looking rig at that. Enjoy!

I've got one.
I can't hit a damn thing shooting unsupported offhand. (its a pistol, right)
@ 50 yards on the bi-pod, with a cheap red-dot, the 10 ring is one jagged hole.

Took some time today to look for Charger in 22LR today locally. None in stock. Now I wish I would have picked up one. I even had my wife suggest getting one at The Bullet Ranch when I picked a SR22 last summer and I said I will wait. I passed again in January for another SR9. Should have picked one up. I want one just for a fun project.

This has become my sinkhole project... The money pit. It is the reason why my other guns have been neglected. The last several range trips have been centered around shooting this fun gun at 25, 50, 75, and 100, yards. It is a blast, yes the fun factor is great with this one. Narry an empty shotgun shell nor a golf ball was safe at the 25 and 50 distance. Hardly anything else came out of the gun case and if it did it wasn't for long.
Here it is as it sits with the latest upgrades.
