They're cool to look at and fun to shoot, very accurate but I haven't shot mine beyond 50 yrds. Truth is, I don't shoot it much. It's just one of those weird things, it doesn't get out of the safe too much but I love having it. My wife shot it more than I did, but she's been pregnant for a while now so hasn't been shooting. I mainly shot my 10-22 and she'd shoot the Charger on the bipod.

I've got a Millet 2x pistol scope on mine, serves the purpose for my shooting.

I love mine. I bought it on a whim a few years ago beacuse I thought it was different. It almost accompanies me to the range every time I go. I used to have a cheap reddot on it for the longest time. It was good to about 50 yrds with it. I recently mounted a Simmons Aetec 2.8-10x44 on it. At 50 yrs cheap federal bulk pack will group at about an inch if I do my part. Little orange target clays are no match at 150 yrds.

I recently purchased one from my local Cabela's. Threw a tactical solutions picatinny rail and an aimpoint on it. Bore sighted it and was hitting bullseyes at 50 yards with one small adjustment. I love shooting it for fun and bring it on almost every trip to the range.

I really like mine......it is a blast to shoot. I have had a red dot installed on it that I liked pretty good. I tried a rifle scope, but just could not come to grips with the shooting position required with the short eye relief. I now have an EER handgun scope on it that I have not tried yet.......time will tell I guess as to which ends up being permanent.

I had an Aimpoint on mine but took it off and put a Weaver Classic 400 on it. Haven't received the trigger back so its still a virgin.

I really liked mine from the factory except for the stock. So I had another stock made and tricked it out with a Kidd barrel, bolt, cocking assembly, and two stage trigger. Added a 2-6 power scope and shoot it out to 100 yds in Metallic Silhouette.

Had the opportunity to shoot one,It has its own following just as accurate and dependable as the 10-22 or MK III series,Not for me though.

I didn't buy my Charger for any other purpose than a range toy, and it really is contagious...you can't put it away once you start firing...

I love the Charger!

I put a 2X6 Bushnell on my Charger and just redid the trigger with a Volquartsen kit; it shoots as good as any of my 10/22 rifles if I do my part! I was hitting the 100 yd. gong every shot yesterday! Super fun; I think people just need to get their minds wrapped around the idea of a rifle-turned-pistol!

Sorry to revive an old thread here, but chargers. Need I say more? Bought one in December of 12 with christmas money/cabelas employee discount and it is the most fun gun I own. Whenever I go to the range, its the only one I take. All that I have done to mine is the auto bolt release and some cheap red dot at my LGS. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

What else would we expect from a chargernut?
