Charger stock options, and other questions



Log in to see fewer ads
I've decided to build another Charger, so I can try out the KIDD 10" barrel. My past experience with Chargers includes factory polymer and laminated stocks, Adaptive Tactical, and a PMACA chassis. What other options are out there that you folks recommend? I suppose weight is not an issue, and this "pistol" will be built for compact accuracy above anything else.

I put this cut-down 10/22 stock on my Charger.



I shoot it with a cheek weld and I'm about as accurate as a rifle with it.

When I built mine I used a cut down factory rifle stock.

I ended up ordering a new receiver and a factory polymer stock (so it will match my Takedown Charger) along with a KIDD 10" bead blasted barrel. And a two-pack of KIDD triggers. Yeah, that hurt.

Scope recommendations

I've got the KIDD barrel and trigger, and have to decide which scope to get. My options are 2-7, or 4-12. Weight isn't really an issue (that 10" barrel already weighs 27 ounces), but I just can't decide whether to keep is compact, or just mount a big hunk of glass on it.

Now you have a whole new problem. Ruger brought out the PC Charger.

Being in the same boat, I was unsure of which stock to utilize for my 6" barreled Charger build; I considered the aluminum chassis' to be too expensive, and along with every other aftermarket option out there, just plain ugly and not very aesthetically pleasing. Then two weekends ago I spotted an OEM polymer Charger stock at a local gunshow for $25, but the gentleman who was offering it told me I could have it for $20, so I figured what the heck and grabbed it. The wheels inside my noggin' had begun to turn before I'd even left the building, after not finding a single other Ruger Charger part while there.

I of course had to do some inletting in the stock for both the KIDD 6" bull barrel and also for the NDS-23 barrel band type front sight that I wanted to install, so I went at the barrel inletting slowly with a piece of 1" aluminum roundstock that I'd turned down a bit which I then wrapped 3/4 the way around with 80 grit sandpaper, working in a consistant and level lengthwise forward and aft direction until I'd removed enough material to allow the barrel to be free floating, then I cut the stock down in length to match where I wanted the front sight to end. The next step was to perform the inletting for the front sight band, which involved some rather tedious sanding using an appropriately sized deep impact socket also wrapped 3/4 the way with 80 grit sandpaper, until enough material was removed to allow a clearance fit. Lastly I used an X-Acto knife to carefully square off where the inletting for the front sight band met the inletting for the barrel. It took a while to do it all by hand, but it worked out well:

Absolutely do not want. I have the PCC, and a Scorpion carbine. I don't need a giant 9mm pistol.
