77/22 trigger job

How hard is it to replace the sear in a Ruger 77/22? Is it something a gunsmith need to do?

What is the best after market drop in replacement kit for the 77/22?

I bought one today and it need a lot of work on the trigger.

Thanks

Mike

Replacing a sear in a 77/22 is a piece of cake. It is very easy to swap parts.

I've had good results with the VQ sear, but wouldn't hesistate to try a Timney.

Some people prefer to replace the trigger itself (usually more expensive) with one from Dayton- Traister, Moyers, Spec-tech, etc. but still very easy to do.

If you are handy, you might want to try to work with the existing parts. See: www.centerfirecentral.com/77trigger.html

Thanks for the reply. How do you remove the sear? Do you punch a pin out or is it a screw? Any information you can provide will be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

New trigger

I just picked up my 77/22 with its new Dayton-Traister trigger installed. I can't believe the difference over the stock trigger. I can't wait the beat the snot out of the 10-ring! Just my $0.025

With the stock removed and the bolt
out of the action.

Hold slight pressure on trigger assembly punch out trigger pin.
There is not a whole lot of tension
on trigger spring just don't lose it.

Next punch the pin out beside the
safety,push sear farward and up to
remove.
Assemble in reverse order.

Hope this helps.

Did the exchange today.

Plinker it was a piece of cake to put the VQ sear and spring in. However the safety is very stiff now. Is this typical?

It did reduce the trigger pull considerably. There seem to be a little bit of travel though and the trigger is loose.

All in all it was a good thing though.

Thanks again

Mike

ps Is it as easy on a 10/22?

Sorry to see VQ has stopped making the sear for the 77-22. I got one on ebay and wow what a difference.

Try Timney. I went with them on my second build, and added a RifleBasix trigger. I'm happy with it.

If you carefully polish the top of the factory trigger so you don't round the edge and change the spring, you don't need to replace the sear! The trigger is easy to take out with 1 pin and the spring can be easily changed to something lighter.
