Return of the Charger? (Multiple Threads)

Browsing the Facebook gun pages I ran across a post that said a distributor accidentally sent these Charger e-flyers out prematurely. Supposedly they are supposed to be announced Monday. I reposted the pictures to the "Ruger Fans" page on Facebook. I got a private message from a man that said he worked for Ruger and that he couldn't post it publicly but he would tell me off the record that they are currently producing these new Chargers. He seemed pretty legitimate to me. However, I guess we will all see soon enough if it is true. Just thought I'd share.

How do these compare to the original retail price? I was expecting a higher msrp.

Looks like a photoshopped AR pistol grip.

The AR pistol grip and BX-25 magazine add a 'tacticool' look that would certainly be marketable. I'm not so much into the look but an affordable Charger certainly appeals to me. (Most of the used ones I see today are in the $425+ range).

The captions below say that it's actually a BX-15 instead of a 25. And someone else pointed out that Ruger is marketing their new trigger for the 10/22 and Charger. They make that really plain in the ad. Too obvious for a product that they have discontinued

The MSRP for the Charger in the 2012 catalog was $389.00.

Those stocks/pistol grip combos are uglier than fried spit (in my humble opinion) Why mix the laminate with the plastic? One or the other please....These look like some kind of Morphodite that Mossberg would come up with...

Something like this would be more like it (again, in my humble opinion)

I would love to get one of these, the 15 round mags would be a great addition. A nice break between 10 & 25.
