    Thinking about putting a pistol brace on my charger.
    What suggestions do you have?
    Please add pics or links.

    Also, I'm needing an optic. Thinking 1x with etched reticle. Realistically not wanting to put over $100 into the optic.

    Thanks.

    Get some magnification with your optics, at least 4 X, I like 6 X.
    Your charger will shoot very accurately at ranges that a red dot will not clearly define point of impact.

    Thanks for the tip.

    What kind of eye relief are you using?

    Are you mostly bench shooting?

    I agree with gemihur.
    Get a scope for bench shooting (it has a bipod).
    A scope for .22LR or .22Mag can be had for under $100 for fun plinking.
    Min 4x. Makes 100 yard shooting fun!

    I like the scope on your pic.
    What kind is that?

    That's a 7-30 Waters
    an old BSA 2-7X32 Edge Series Pistol Scope
    eye relief 12"- 20" depending on power of magnification
    I sight in to hit a penny consistently at 25 yards
    The bullet is still on the rise at that range and at 100 yds,, depending on your velocity and BC, it'll hit about an inch and a half high

    Sometimes a handgun is best suited with a low power scope ...
    Here, I have a 2x20 on a 14" 444 Marlin barrel with some homemade furniture

    New optics mounted, 2X was not enough so I picked up another Edge 2-7x32 (had to lose a ring, tho)
