Got my first charger with a threaded barrel. My question is do you use a comp. on your charger ? If so which one ? Any pics ?

The reason for having a threaded barrel on the Charger is because many people buy them to shoot suppressed. Don't think you would see and benefits from any type of compensator or muzzle brake on any .22lr.

I use a linear comp on mine. Sends the sound more forward and protects the muzzle.

When you think about the purpose of a compensator and consider the Charger's weight and the diminutive .22LR cartridge, how much benefit will one be installed on a Charger? I think that most who mount them on their Chargers are doing so for the "tactical look" rather than any actual advantage in recoil reduction, muzzle rise, etc.

I have no need for compensated rimfire pistols or rifles, but since I very much enjoy shooting my Charger clone and my other .22's suppressed I always tend to purchase rimfire firearms with threaded muzzles:

Thanks all. I was looking at the linear comp. always get the modify bug when I get something new. ( gonna get it for that comment), lol. So when I received my threaded charger I started looking at others builds. I guess Iím going to break down and get a suppressor. Now that I know I NEED one. It will be easier to convince my accountant. I may still try a linear comp. while I begin the wait game for a hearing protection device .

When I built my charger my first consideration was the best accuracy I could absolutely obtain at 350-450 yards. I really struggled with threaded for a compensator or non threaded. After a lot of anguish I ordered a 14.5 " heavy taper non threaded. When the shot brakes, I get enough recoil with std vel that the pistol recoils back and the scope goes black. I find myself pushing the pistol forward to see the shot impact which breaks my follow thru concentration.

There are not many Ruger parts on this one.

I went with the KAW Valley linear comp mainly for the benifit of sending the sound down range. The standard size comp looks great without being too big for the Charger.
