Are Charger and 10/22 parts interchangeable?



Log in to see fewer ads
The reason I ask is that I am buying a Charger. It appears to be a pistolized 10/22. I have a lot of 10/22 parts laying around like a BX trigger, VQ bolt tune up kit and other goodies.

A Charger is just a short barreled 10-22, nothing more, everything is the same.

Thanks for the responses. One of the other reasons I asked is because I see a lot of questions about barrels and it made me wonder why people don't seem to be looking or even mentioning a pistol-length10/22 barrels as an option when replacing a barrel. I thought maybe they might have been different in some way.

Cool

Well, a pistol length 10/22 barrel would be a Charger barrel, they would not normally be sold as a 10/22 barrel due to the legal issue. BTW, you can legally put a 30” 10/22 barrel on a Charger. But you can’t put a 10” Charger barrel on a 10/22 receiver without a tax stamp.

I plan on keeping a pistol length barrel. I do have a stock 10/22 tapered barrel I may have cut to 12-14" and threaded. I have a BX trigger that is definitely getting used. One other question I have is whether a .920 bull barrel will fit in the standard stock. The model Charger I bought is a 4923

No, the .920" diameter bull barrel will not fit the standard polymer stock, it will need to be inletted.

Below is the level of inletting that was required for the OEM Charger polymer stock to allow a KIDD bull barrel to fit/free float:


The extra inletting at the front (of the shortened stock) was required for clearance/free floating of the NoDak Spud NDS-23 band style front sight:

Thanks DrewBone. That's a great looking pistol you have. I guess once I get the Charger in my posession then the barrel fit would be obvious.

I have been putting parts in a box for almost 2 years on my current Charger project. I'm down to one last part, the barrel. A threaded 10" factory profile barrel is about impossible to come by these days.

You're quite welcome, and thank you for the kind words

Between investigating all the different options for receiver, barrel, trigger group, associated parts, etc., and modifying the factory polymer stock, I had alot of fun with my Charger clone build. I built it to be a suppressor host for quiet high capacity casual target shooting and plinking, and it certainly is fulfilling its purpose!

I have a factory contoured barrel off a 10/22 that I am planning on having cut down and threaded. I just need to find a smith who can do it.

I sent a text to my gunsmith asking if he could do it and he replied yes with a picture. I don't know anything about barrel work and crowning so I don't know
if this is a good work or not.

That looks like the receiver end is threaded, not the muzzle end. Maybe you need to clarify.
