New Charger-- any thoughts?

Would be curious to see how accurate this model would be over say the 10" barrel, and what type of brace could be attached.

There are currently some 8" barrels made by Pike Arms-- https://www.pikearms.com/catalog/product/5016-00312 but have not seen any direct test comparisons between 6"-10" barrels to see any accuracy or velocity results. Barrel manufacturers is another topic altogether. I currently have the standard 10" factory barrel--Just not sure if a change or new purchase is warranted. I have shot 3/4" groups off the bench at 50 yards.

My 10" Kidd barrel gives excellent results. Can score in the 220's on the green meenie.

This gives me the urge to get one. I have just been getting involved in rimfire shooting these past few years and love it. Nothing better for the soul. These Chargers have always peaked my interest and I can not wait to get one. Our LGS has some on order and we will be looking at one.

That picatinny rail in the back is nice. Something like this would be lighter than the buffer tube and folder I have. there are probably cheaper ones out there.

Both the Farrowtech and SB Tactical braces look like great options for the Charger, and really allow it to reach it's full potential from an ease of use and accuracy standpoint. I'm going to do some more research on the 6" and 8" barrels for the Charger. From some of the information I've seen, it appears the 8" barrel puts the standard velocity and high velocity in kind of a no man's land when seeking to keep your rounds just below the sound barrier; meaning that SV rounds will be well below the speed of sound, and HV rounds well above. I could be wrong on this, but from what I was looking at, appears to generally be the case. If you guys have better information on this, please share.

I have found that most of the 40 grain HV will just stay subsonic in my 22-45 4.4" barrel while the 36 grain HP will not. I mostly use SV or subsonic in the Charger as it does not crud up the can as much as HV. The new CCI Clean polymer coated subsonic is actually cleaner and there was less smoke.

nodak, this is one of the sources I did see. No info there on 40gr. SV, but I have chronographed 40 gr. CCI SV out of my 10" barrel, and was averaging around 1020 fps. Ideal muzzle velocity out of any length barrel IMO would be around 1050fps. A few trade offs here to consider.
