Fix or sell?



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently purchased a tricked out 10/22 from a friend who was in need of money, . (Anniversary receiver, Kidd barrel, bx trigger, boyds thumbhole stock, etc.......) This purchase was the end of a long hiatus for me away from 10/22's and into bold action .22's. I took the gun out today and to be honest wasn't thrilled. Out of 4 different ammo's, CCI standard seemed to be the only one that would group under 3/4" at 50 yds. ( I can get 1/2 that with some of my bolt guns.). Maybe it's in the action/stock fit but I have to think the trigger is the first culprit. I find it to have creep and too heavy. I used to do trigger jobs on my (then) 10/22's with volquartsen parts some 20 years ago but am wondering what new options there may be on the table these days. Looking for something I can get CRISP into the 2# range but prefer to keep the cost under $150. ( I am just not spending $250 on a Kidd 10/22 trigger.) If what I'm looking for is undoable, then I'm thinking maybe I just parts the gun out.
Any an
d all experience appreciated.

p.s. I have searched quite a bit here but trigger but it's like drinking from a fire hose . too much info all over the place.

The Kidd single stage trigger kit is an easy install and feels wonderful Tacoma.

Yup, Kidd Kit 100%. 1.5# - 1.75# without any tuning, and a nice clean & crisp break.

If you donít want to Kidd yourself you can send it off to Brimstone. I sent him two polymer trigger groups that were horrible, they came back nice, with exactly (by my cheap spring scale) the 2.5 lb pull that I asked for. I had them do tier 3 for $45 bucks each plus shipping.

They have my Mini 14 trigger group now. Hoping they can work some miracles on it as well.

An over travel adjustable trigger may help.

+1 on the KIDD kit. Tony Kidd has a very good video showing step by step instructions of installation of the kit. Go to coolguyguns.com to order the kit and access the video. You will end up with no creep, smooth and a 1.5--1.75# trigger pull. Well worth the cost and effort. One other option is to send your trigger to CPC (Connecticut Precision Chambering) for a trigger job by Randy. About $45 plus shipping. Very good results at lesser cost.

I agree that Randy does an excellent job on OEM trigger groups. But the price is $90 plus shipping or $100 plus shipping if it's a Ruger Target model.

Nothing against him, he does a great job given he has to use the OEM parts to improve the trigger, but at that price you might as well just go with the Kidd kit.

Thanks Folks, I'll give the Kidd kit a try and sell of the BX trigger to ease the pain. Do I need the tuning springs to get to/under 2#?

I've got an engineering degree and have done a good dozen + ruger trigger kit installs so this shouldn't be much different. I'm just tired of fiddling with this rifle to get it to shoot decent. If all else fails, I'll sell the kidd trigger group , kid barrel etc and buy another Bergara

You should be at 1.5# - 1.75# without the spring kit. Most of mine are right around 1.5#. Install is very easy on a Kidd Kit. If you know your way around a 10/22 trigger group you should be able to install it in under 10 minutes pretty easily.

Thanks, sounds like what I've been looking for.
