Kidd single stage trigger or Volquartsen TG2000?



Log in to see fewer ads
The use: Benchrest target shooter in a bull barrel built 10/22. Wanting to upgrade from the home tuned factory plastic trigger group.

Should I get the Kidd single stage trigger for $200 or the Volquartsen TG2000 for $150? Is the Kidd worth an extra $50?

Can the pre travel and over travel adjustments on the TG2000 be adjusted down to make it close to a single stage?

Kidd. I have single and two stage versions, best triggers on the market in my opinion.
I have other brands of parts kits and ones done by myself with a Power Custom stoning jig with OEM parts. They are good but the Kidd is easily adjustable and perfectly fitted, that makes a big difference.

I consider my Kidd single stage trigger the best gun money I ever spent.

If you want the trigger to come in at less than 2 pounds, probably.

The TG2000 is already a single stage trigger.

I have a Kidd single and two stage trigger. They are both “buy again” products.

The KIDD is definitely worth the extra 50 bucks

It's apples to rotten apples comparison.. KIDD is crisp.. the other is not garbage but not much better than a home brew trigger job on a OEM trigger.. I have 2 VQ units sitting here on the shelf that the owners abandoned after I dropped in the KIDDS. Pretty EZ decision.

I used to have 2 of the VQ trigger groups. That was a while back before I tried my first Kidd Trigger Job Kit. I've since acquired 2 of the Kidd 2 stage, 3 single stage, and 6 trigger kits. All of them (kit included) are better than the VQ. My VQ's have now been sold off for less than half of what I paid for them. To be honest if I could get the VQ for $50 and the Kidd for $200 I would still choose the Kidd.

I have the TG2000 trigger in my Volquarstsen Fusion.
Nice trigger, but not the greatest.
I think photos jazz up any thread.

I have both the KIDD single stage and 2 stage that I use in my KIDD Supergrade.
The single stage is much crisper with a lighter trigger pull (1.5lbs), and a shorter take up and reset than the VQ.
No contest really.
I use mine for Steel Challenges.



However if you can swing it, I highly recommend the KIDD 2 Stage for Benchrest use, and I would have it set at no more the 5/5oz's. The single stage at 1.5lbs is way too high for bench use.
Mine is set at 3/3ozs.
No contest for benchrest use, and note that the KIDD 2 stage is a completely different, and much more sophisticated trigged than the single stage.
I like the engineering of the 2 stage so much, that I use it for my Avatar.

Not quite as good as my Anschutz 5018 trigger, but in the same ball park.

Smooth

I agree with the above post. I have two of the Kidd two stage triggers. I have not found a 10/22 trigger that comes close to the Kidd two stage.
I also have a Brimstone level two trigger. It's a very good unit but it is not in the same class as the Kidd.

The only thing Volquartsen has that competes with Kidd is barrels. And that's only because they both use Lothar Walther blanks.

Available from anyone who bought one and then tried a KIDD.

To be honest I don't even think their barrels compare. They make a good extractor and TD screw, lol.
