First Look: SB Tactical SB22 Chassis for Ruger .22s

posted on June 12, 2021

SB Tactical is known for their innovative pistol stabilizing braces, and now they are bringing their reputation for build quality and practicality to their new SB22 chassis, a lightweight, modular chassis for the Ruger 22 Charger and Ruger 10/22 family of firearms.

At 15 inches long and 1.5 inches wide, the SB22 chassis turns any Ruger 22 Charger or 10/22 into a light and portable pack gun, perfect for taking along with you as you head out into the great outdoors. Lightweight, durable construction, and the ability to take M1913-compatible Pistol Stabilizing Braces or rifle stocks, the SB22 is built to give you the performance you need and flexibility for future requirements.  

Designed in partnership with Unity Tactical, the SB22 is a 17-ounce polymer chassis with an aluminum insert that adds utility and functionality to the popular 22 Charger and 10/22 platforms.

“The SB22 is the first product in what will be a long line of new non-brace products from us,” said Jeff Creamer, president and CEO. “While we have no intention of moving away from our core, we want to expand our portfolio and offer a wider range of products with the same design excellence, quality and customer service that people have come to expect from SB Tactical.”

Available for both fixed or takedown models, the SB22 features a Picatinny (M1913) rail on the rear and integral, ambidextrous QD sling sockets, along with an M1913 Bridge Mount and Flat Top Cover. The Takedown Kit model has all those features  as well as an M-Lok compatible handguard for the attachment of lights, lasers, and other accessories to your gun.

The SB22 comes standard with the Reptilia CQG Grip and accepts all standard AR15 pistol grips and has an MSRP of $124.99, and for more information on the SB22 and other products from SB Tactical, please visit
