Jard trigger



Log in to see fewer ads
Anyone own a Jard trigger? I seen one online for 90 bucks but wanted some opinions before I "pull the trigger" on it. I currently run a brimstone tier 2.

Really? I have heard they were pretty good. Can’t remember what platform they were on though. I don’t have one yet myself.

Spend the extra $15 and get a Kidd trigger job kit.

And your reasons are? Function, Price, Business Practices, Politics, or ?????

I have several of their AR15 triggers that are excellent. Very clean 1.5lb break, short/quick reset, adjustable take-up and adjustment for the safety. I have them in a precision AR, an M&P 15-22 and a JP/Nordic .22 AR. The only negative about them is the reset is a little to soft to ride the reset for really, really fast trigger work.

The op asked about one for a 10/22. There are much better options available. Just because a company makes a good trigger for a centerfire or another rimfire platform doesn't mean all thier triggers are going to be as good in all firearms. I love my Timney triggers that I have in a few of my centerfire rifles. I bought a Timney drop in unit for a 10/22 and I ended up returning it. It wasn't awful, just likes Jard isn't awful, especially compared to the OEM 10/22 trigger. But for the same price or less there are much better triggers available.

Thanks, I understand that a company that makes a good trigger for one type of gun doesn't necessarily mean they make good triggers for another type of gun.

I asked for their reasons. Bad customer service, overly complicated design, too expensive or do they just not like the company even though the 10/22 trigger may work quite well.

A snarky response like "run away, run far away" doesn't give any information.

There is a previous thread(s)s about the 10/22 Jard not long ago that gives more insight about the 'misgivings'. Perhaps you can find it/them or someone may be able to link to it here.

Sorry for the late reply, i was underway. But thanks for the feedback. I'm just a plinker and I also shoot friendly competitions between a few of my friends, nothing serious. I'm gonna pass it up and maybe invest in a kidd or Brimstone tier 1.

Thanks again.

Wise decision.

Brimstone is great for the guys that don't want to work on their own triggers. The Kidd trigger kit works very well and is easy to get below 16 oz measured pull. A friend ruined me by letting me pull his Kidd 3 & 3.
