This exhilarating new addition is primed to redefine what a firearm can offer with its combination of superior handling, robust performance, and exceptional versatility.

For those with a keen eye for customization, the LC Charger does not disappoint. It boasts an M-LOK aluminum free-float handguard complete with an adjustable hand stop, multiple QD attachment points for slings, and a full-length Picatinny rail, paving the way for an exciting variety of optic choices.

Safety and reliability are central to Ruger’s reputation, and the LC Charger is no exception.

Leveraging Ruger’s tested and trusted Secure Action fire-control mechanism, this pistol couples a protected internal hammer with a bladed-safety trigger. The result is a short, smooth pull with a clean break and positive reset – a winning combination in any shooter’s book.

To top it off, the LC Charger’s nitride-coated alloy steel barrel is threaded 1/2″-28, accommodating standard muzzle accessories.

Constructed with durable, lightweight materials, the LC Charger speaks to the American tradition of strength and reliability. Whether you’re hitting the range, safeguarding your home, backpacking, or hunting small game, this firearm promises to be an ideal companion.

    Ludicrous price for what is essentially a simple blowback operated semi auto in what amounts to a re-loadable 22WMR (5.7×28) Why are all of these 5.7s so expensive? A PS90 is going for around $1800. This one at a grand.
    It’s a range toy with limited hunting applications.

      Exactly – been seeing more and more 5.7s at the range and while I was pretty impressed how nice the FN shot that I had the chance to try out a couple weeks ago I just couldn’t see myself paying so much $ – for the gun AND the ammo…5.7 ammo isn’t cheap – for something that doesn’t really have much of a practical use. I could see if I hunted varmints or something but between my 5.56s and 9mms I’m not seeing a spot in the safe for any 5.7s any time soon unless the price came way down…

    Add a bipod and scope probably be a blast to hunt woodchucks with.
