The 2 VQ's I had went down the road with disclaimers after my 1st KIDD barrel purchase. Sold them for less than I paid and bought 2 more KIDD's.

I have seen a VQ barrel on YouTube shoot a hummer of a group.

I am partial to volquartsen customs since they are a local more or less shop... they are 40 minutes from me and when I bought my target hammer from there they installed it and I got a custom trigger job free of charge.... I LIKE IT!!

I use both the Kidd single stage and the Kidd two stage. Best trigger out there, by far, JMHO.

Have you considered a Kidd trigger kit in your plastic housing? Either way Kidd is the way to go on single or double stage triggers.

Excellent choice also. Almost as good as the single stage, almost.

I have not for this build. I’m looking for the best single stage trigger that is not absurdly priced. I’ve already worked over this Ruger trigger group and will be putting it in a MLR varmint controller.

seeing several posts like this on multiple threads has turned me away from the kit for this build. I was really hoping the Heartland produced trigger would be as good but if a Texas product is better...

From your OP, I understood that this trigger would be used for Benchrest/Target work.

If that is correct, why would you want to use a 1.5lb single stage trigger?

Smooth.

Correct, I’m looking for a trigger for my benchrest build. Mostly target shooting 37-62 yards. The lighter trigger pull weight is for less shifting during firing. The single stage is just what I prefer, one clean break and reset.

Is there something else you recommend for this use?

I own both the 2 stage and single stage.. I enjoy both. While they are indeed different the 2 stage is not for everyone.. but it is the best on the market for a serious Bench rest shooter.

Nothing wrong with a Kidd single stage trigger. I agree it is not a Kidd 2 stage which can be set on 3/3oz. But if you can shoot you can turn in some impressive 5 shot groups. These were back to back at 100yds no cherry picking 10 straight shots with a Kidd single stage trigger.

Here's one call it cherry picked but I bet I could do better with more attempts. Dime easily will cover all 5 shots. Kidd single stage trigger used

edge to edge measuring flaw

Your bullet is not .224 diameter and more important the holes it makes are smaller, so how do you know where the true edge starts? This measuring method is flawed. I personally measure center to center with calipers, a lot better chance to estimate center than edge. But software measuring is even better. I assume your target sticker was 1" given that actual group is 0.38" still impressive though!

MOA is wrong

I had previous distance set to 50 yards so the MOA is wrong, divide it by 2.
