It is not a BX trigger but it is better than the standard OEM trigger that comes on most other 10/22's. I can live with it for now. I may switch it out at some point for a BX.

Or, for slightly more money than a BX, send your OEM trigger group to Brimstone Gunsmithing for their Tier 2 trigger job. You will also get the auto-bolt release upgrade at no extra cost. You will be pleased.

Dids that about 4 years ago, and really happy with the results.

Plain Jane OEM trigger groups go for $30-$35 on ebay, send them to me, I'll sell 'em.

I have no doubt this guy know has forgotten more about 10/22 than I will ever know. However, I would be apprehensive about using a nylon. I'm not saying "it doesn't work" I'm saying I would be apprehensive. Especially in New England.

Nylon is a semi-crystalline polymer, and not only does it have a melt temperature, but more importantly it has a glass transition temp. This temp is when the nylon can sort of anneal itself and grow more crystals in itself which will not only cause shrinkage, but make the plastic "stronger"..."stronger" isn't necessarily a word we want to associate with this pin...we want more impact resistance.

Now the temperature at which this happens is pretty low. Depending on the nylon it can happen around 125 degrees Fahrenheit. Your receiver can get that hot. Also, cold weather will have the same effect on the strength. The strength raises (as in tensile, and flexural modulus), and the impact resistance lowers. It's not uncommon for me to shoot at 10 degrees or lower. I get the range to myself. And at those temps nylon can break.

I notice KIDDs and Volquartzen uses TPU (polyurethane) which is noted for its chemical resistance, its impact resistance, and sound deadening qualities. it's also an amorphous polymer which is resistant to shrinkage

I know of a mid 70s 10/22 that a close friends dad bought new that only saw HV brick ammo. after about 40k miles, my friend cleaned it when we were teenagers. he lost the bolt stop pin and put it back together without one. she another 60k after that and it ran fine. rifle shot great, but was filthy. i took it completely apart several years ago and put it back together. still as accurate, was always really accurate for a factory carbine. runs just as good with the buffer. didnt seem to have any elongation of the receiver hole for using the factory pin all those years and rounds. i think with the factory recoil spring the factory bolt stop is probably fine. i run buffers in mine anyway.

Also, Polycarbonate is prone to environmental stress cracking. Tough as hell, but when you introduce chemicals or solvents...that's when it runs into trouble

This is pretty much 4 pages about a whole lot of nothing when it comes down to it.

Yeah, I do not see the sense in it.

It is one's own predilection if he so chooses to install a buffer or not.

My 1974 10/22 steel bolt stop had no issues and still didn’t right up until I swapped it out for a nylon stop, man is the nylon stop reduce the recoil noise. Shoot with some sub-sonic and a silencer and you’ve got one quite 10/22 for the range or backyard plinking.

Steel Buffer

Except for the long term wear that the Steel Bolt Stop/Buffer can cause...I'm sure there's nothing technically wrong with them. I do like the fact it is much 'softer' on the Bolt...and has to cause much less vibration to the entire assembly. It just makes sense to me that whenever we can reduce or prevent metal to metal contact probably mean longer life and much more smooth operation.
