Fail to go to battery or light strikes depending on trigger assembly



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi guys. Could use some advice. I have a Kingston Armory Garand 10/22. It is built from parts gathered up on forums and I am no gunsmith. I have been getting two different failures to cycle depending on which trigger assembly I have it in.

1. When using the Jard trigger, I get frequent failures to go fully into battery.
2. When using the BX Trigger, I get a lot of light strikes or it doesn't cock the hammer

a. With Jard Trigger, it always cocks and no light strikes
b. With BX Trigger, it always goes fully into battery.

No extraction issues.
Tried a a few different high velocity ammo and behavior doesn't change much.
I have smoothed the receiver with scotchbrite pad.
It feels like the bolt runs pretty smooth

Any ideas? Really pretty rifle.. but frustratingly unreliable. These two completely opposite issues depending on trigger must be some sort of a clue, but I am still scratching my head....

Problem solved. Bought another Kingston bolt and a Ruger recoil rod/spring. There was WAY too much play with these parts and I think the bolt was cocking sideways

I am using the Jard trigger and it is working. I havenít tried the BX trigger in it yet. But itís working so I am content with it. It is running quite reliable now.

I guess it is another case of crappy machine work.

I am new to the 10/22 world. This Kingston is the only one I have. I am not sure what you mean by ďtypeĒ.

Both the bad bolt and the good bolt were from Kingston. The original recoil rod and spring came from Kingston.

The current recoil rod and spring are standard Ruger.

I hope that answers your question.

There have been several issues with Kingston internals, documented by other RFC members. Iíve built a couple of custom 10/22 style rifles with the Kingston receivers, using Kidd internals and Iíve had no issues.

What you described is not unusual with their internals.

Yeah. I read the discouraging posts but still dove in to build once since I love my real M1 Garlands so much.

It was a good project that caused a lot of cussing but in the end it is satisfying. No easy journey is remembered for very long.

That sounds like a cool rifle I hope it works well from here on out.
