TD or Standard

After much research and the physical feel of the Ruger Charger, I have decided to go with the Charger. However, now I am trying to decide between the TD or the Standard.
I do not see a lot of discussion on the pros and cons on each version. Rimfire Central has a dedicated board to the Charger TD or STD, but it actually came to no decisions..
The only thing I read somewhere is the the STD model was easier to upgrade, which doesn’t make any sense. But I am from the generation that believed “that is you saw it on TV it must be true” well, I finally came to the conclusion that that wasn’t necessarily so and I am taking that belief over to the Internet.
I also read a discussion that just for the convenience, if there is a convenience, it didn’t make a lot of sense to spend an extra $75 or so just to break down the barrel into a flimsy case.
Would anyone care to share their knowledge and believes on the takedown versus standard.
Thank you

First off, I don’t own a charger, nor do I have plans on purchasing one in the near future. That being said, I saw a neat video on youtube. The guy, I believe he was military arms channel, manufactured a piece that screws into an existing hole in the stock and makes it capable of accepting an adjustable AR style adjustable stock. I thought this was a good way of improving the shootability of the charger. I am not sure but I think this hole is only on the charger takedown.

Thanks for passing that along. That was the Military Channel and it is a great 👍🏻 video.

You CANNOT put a stock on a pistol. You can put a pistol arm brace on it, which is designed to clamp around your forearm to steady the pistol. The arm brace will slide onto an AR receiver extension, but is not supposed to lock into position.

Check out the Sig Arm Brace.

Charger brace adapter

I saw the video on the MAC and instantly ordered a brace adapter for my charger. It looks and fits great, the price is right, and it's very well made. It will allow you to insert a buffer tube style pistol brace, so don't install a stock.

I wasn't that keen on the charger until now, but it's gone from a bulky pistol into a super light carbine type pistol. I tried a few different braces for fit and aesthetics including thordsen, shockwave, and tailhook. I'm also using a Hera Arms side folding unit which will make any brace a folder except the thordsen.

It makes all the difference in handling and I'm sure it will for shootability, so I highly recommend it. I would post pics if I had an account somewhere, but this is perfectly legal since it's not a shoulder stock, it is a pistol brace! This is one accessory that should transform the charger into something really special and popular. I would love to do a take down version so I may have to get a second charger now!

I ended up buying one of each. I could buy both of them cheaper after ruger re-released
them than I could buy an older used charger.

I had planned to purchase the standard Charger pistol til I came across a green mountain takedown for the same price at my local Cabelas.

While I see the advantage of the takedown for carry in the carbine, in the Charger it's only really good for quick swaps of the barrel, not much to be saved in overall length for carry and while I finally got my POI to consistent once I figured out how to adjust the barrel it will still change just a bit when it's removed & reinstalled.

But the biggest downside for me is that mine gets thrown off quite a bit when used with the rail & tripod. And before you ask, yes, mine is as tight as I can get it, there just seems to be a bit of flex in that connection. When used with a flush mag and resting on the rear half of the receiver, it's great, accurate and repeatable. Put a tripod or an angled grip on it and it shifts.

Still a fun little gun, I put a brace on mine and run it with an angled grip and a GSG 110 round drum.
