OK, always just considered a handgun optic for the Charger. Watching Youtube videos on the Charger, it seems that many use rifle scopes, judging from how close they hold the gun while shooting.
So, what is most common, handgun scope, rifle scope, or red dot?

The Charger has a 10" barrel. A 100 yard shot is a looong shot for that. For me, I use a primary Arms 2 moa red dot. That is a 2" dot at 100 yards. More than enough. If, however, you do use a scope, get a pistol scope with a long eye relief so you don't have to hold it close to your eye. A pistol scope allows you to extend your arms normally when shooting.

Mine was accurate with the red dot, so I just put a Nikon 4x Prostaff Rimfire on it to see what I could do & I was impressed! At 25', the groups were an inch.

The Nikon has found new home.
