Want to share picture of my Charger build.

Tactical solutions 12" XRP barrel
Voquartsen TG2000
Urethane buffer bar
Cheapo red dot
Not shown; Gem Tech Outback IID
It sometimes has extraction problems so I'll be installing a VQ exact edge extrator soon...other than that small occasional hiccup it is accurate out to 100yds and is capable of stackng rounds at 25 yrds.

Nice build, I really like the barrel. One question, what is a Urethane buffer bar? Thx

Nice gun...didn't know TacSol made a 12" barrel...I have 16" barrel I might put on my charger later...might cut it...if I do it would be to 12"...

What moa is the dot...what do you consider "accurate" at 100yds...or better yet...what size groups did you get at 100yards with that red dot...

I was going to ask what ammo...but I see you took care of that in the picture...nice...

Goes in the rear of reciever in place of the metal one..Less wear and tear on the bolt (So they say)

This is a part to replace the big steel pin at the rear of the receiver.
When a round is fired the bolt blows backwards and bounces of the buffer bar and the travels forward scraping off a round on its way and then locks up a round in the chamber until the trigger is pulled and then the whole process repeats again.

The part will not enhance performance but it is said to reduce wear and tear on internals.

In my situation I picked this part to eliminate the metal ''CLACK" that can be heard with a suppressor.

With a suppressed 10/22's you can definitely hear the difference between a urethane and steel buffer bar.

Tac Sol does not make this barrel any more. I consider myself lucky to have it.

I don't know the specs of the MOA on the red dot but I recall softball and tennis ball sized groups that day at 100 yd. it was also breezy like 10-15 mph side winds so I think it could get better.

All I can say is I mostly shoot it from a bench at aluminum cans at 25 yd. with a red dot.

No doubt it is much more accurate with the new barrel and when I take my time shooting at the X ring it is not uncommon to stack rds @ 25 yd. Nickel sized groups are the norm.

To me the charger is the ultimate bench rest plinker but if I was going to walk the woods with a .22 I would rather have a scoped MKIII, 22/45 lite or a 10/22 carbine.

Just as an FYI my TacSol 16" with scope from bench rest using 40gr cprn mini mags under perfect conditions did two five shot groups that looked identical and fit in a 1-5/8" x 1-3/8" rectangle...that was in a carbine stock...

I have not tested that 16" TacSol barrel that way with a non shoulder fired stock for group sizes...

I got horrible results using Federal Match SV compared to Mini Mags, Velocitors, and Federal Game Shok all in 40gr solid...

My charger has the Bushnell TRS-3moa dot...the scoped carbine w/ TacSol barrel will shoot inside the dot at 100 yards under ideal conditions but it takes a while to get it dialed in...on the Charger I have it adjusted to hit the dot at 100' and I like to chase golf balls with it in the desert...past 100' shooting off hand with the charger/dot at golf balls is low percentage for me... but under 100' is high percentage...

I have a Charger that I use for Bench rest plinking with a Promag Archangel stock, but it's a little bulky. Looks neat and kinda mean tho.



I got another one not long ago that I wanted to make a nice carry one, with a single point sling. And this one, I think, might be a nice one to take for a walk in the woods. I am considering barrel options for this one. I can use the top of the grip as a cheek rest, and it fits nice and tight against my body. But... I have not yet taken it out to shoot..... waiting for warmer weather (it's almost here).

That is how I use mine...the only way to fly imo...

I have a knoxx axiom carbine stock that will get modified for the Charger...won't look as nearly as nice as yours but will fit my hands a lot better than the Charger version of the same stock you have...

What is the big diff? They look very similar except the carbine model is longer and has a butt stock (which you have to remove if used on a Pistol).

Where did you find that barrel...how long ago...

The SBX barrel could have the shroud cut off and then would be exactly the barrel length, type I would want including the threaded muzzle but the cost for that is way, way too high...

A 12" aluminum barrel with porting and a threaded muzzle would be ideal imo...

And of course if it could be a TD barrel that would be truly golden...

I'll more likely wind up cutting my 16" tacsol to 12" if and when I can get a WP 20" ported barrel for my carbine...

Next year maybe...

Chargers are BaddAss! Shooting this thing never gets old with me!

I tossed the stock bi-pod and went with a Harris 6" - 9" pic rail mounted unit. Added "Handle" and "A post" sights, a TLR-3 Streamlight, a CP red dot laser, a AA922 25 round magazine, with a Nomad Magazine skin, a TactiCool barrel thread adapter, and a Vietnam War era Colt M-16 three prong flash hider. Lanyard ring is from a "Used" pineapple grenade. Other upgrades are a Kidde bolt release, and extended mag release lever, along with a Volquartsen extractor.

No jams here!

Stock is an Archangel 5.56 that I took a saw to and mounted some side pic rails on for the Streamlight and laser. Going for the CAR-15 look.

This is a very accurate little piece!
