Posted by Emma Roy on 4/29/2024 to Firearm Topics

If you own a Ruger® 10/22® or 22 Charger™, chances are you’re on the lookout for ways to enhance its performance and customize it to meet your needs. TANDEMKROSS’s Manticore series offers a range of features to fit your budget and preferences. Join us as we discuss the differences between the Manticore X, Manticore, and Manticore LITE.

Manticore X Lower for Ruger® 10/22®

The Manticore X is the flagship of the Manticore family and boasts a plethora of features to elevate your Ruger® 10/22® or 22 Charger™ to new heights. Its innovation and modularity set it apart in the world of aftermarket 10/22® parts and accessories.

Manticore X includes:

Manticore X comes equipped with integral stock and grip mounts, making swapping out parts and switching builds a breeze.  The configurability of the stock mount allows for angled or in-line installation, and the housing comes fitted with O-ring cord to allow for an adjustable fit to your specific receiver.

Like the rest of the Manticore line, the X has adjustability for trigger over-travel and trigger pull weight. Its trigger pull weight is adjustable from approximately 2¼ lbs to over 5lbs. Manticore X also features the Victory Trigger which is an aggressively textured, flat-faced trigger shoe for improved control and comfort during firing.

TANDEMKROSS’s auto bolt release doubles as an extended bolt lock designed to streamline the operation of your 10/22®. The extended magazine release functions by pushing or pulling to provide convenience and efficiency, especially designed for rapid magazine changes.

The Manticore X is compatible with fixed Ruger® 10/22® barrels and Ruger® Takedown barrels, providing a wide array of options for customization. Additionally, the ambidextrous rotary safety selector enhances user accessibility and ergonomics, catering to both left and right-handed shooters. 

All this can be yours for the MSRP of $499.99. If you’re looking for the true ultimate upgrade for your 10/22®, then add the PRO Bundle! For just an additional $199.99, you’ll get everything you need to build an entire Ruger® 10/22® minus only the receiver and barrel.

Manticore Trigger Assembly for Ruger® 10/22®

The Manticore strikes an impressive balance between functionality and innovation. Like the Manticore X, the Manticore features a flat-faced, textured trigger with the same adjustable pull weight and over-travel that the Manticore X has. What separates the Manticore Trigger Assembly from the Manticore X Lower is its compatibility with factory Ruger® 10/22® and 22  Charger™ stocks and chassis.

Manticore includes:

  • Cornerstone Rotary Safety

  • Ultimate Trigger Kit 

  • Bolt Keeper Extended Bolt Lock

  • Fireswitch Extended Magazine Release

Just like its siblings, the Manticore housing is machined from aluminum to maximize durability without adding too much weight.

Manticore LITE for Ruger® 10/22®

The Manticore LITE offers essential upgrades specifically for 10/22® owners seeking affordable simplicity. While being the more budget-friendly option in the Manticore lineup, it still delivers on key aspects such as adjustability for trigger pull weight and over-travel.

Manticore LITE includes:

Unique from the Manticore or Manticore X, the Manticore LITE emphasizes streamlined minimalism over extended ergonomic controls. Its low profile push-button safety, Guardian Bolt Release, and Skeletonized Magazine Release preserve rugged simplicity for improved handling and easy field maintenance. The Manticore LITE is an affordable way to significantly improve your entire trigger assembly with a single drop-in upgrade.

TANDEMKROSS offers a range of upgrades for Ruger® 10/22®, catering to various requirements and budgets. Whether you opt for the innovative modularity of the Manticore X, the balanced functionality of the Manticore, or the affordability and simplicity of the Manticore LITE, each is designed to enhance your Ruger® 10/22 or 22 Charger™.
