KIDD "Trigger Job" Kit $105...Any Complaints?



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm considering upgrading to these in all of my 10/22's including replacing the Volquartsen hammer kit I have in one of them now.

These kits of course aren't cheap but I'm thinking "Buy Once, Cry Once" but before I clicked buy and order I wanted to hear from you folks if there are complaints of which I'm not aware.

Thanks so much as always.

I recently acquired one of the kits and put it in a plastic housing. I love it! Beats the heck out of the VQ hammer kit i have in another gun. Its every bit as nice of a trigger as my full kidd single stage just not quite as light. It breaks right at 2# but is incredible crisp and the reset is very nice. My single stage breaks at 1# 6 oz. with a softer reset. I would highly recomend the kit. im about to get 2 more myself for other rifles!

Another thing if you didnt notice is you do get a discount if you buy more then 1. 2 or more are only $90 each. You can also get them on EBay for $2 more but free shipping. Ebay does however charge tax so it may not be a better deal depending on what kidd shipping costs.

I have installed over a dozen of the KIDD Kits..

Only thing better on the market is the entire KIDD Single Stage unit or the 2-Stage unit.. and they are a work of Art. The Kit is by far the best drop-in you can buy.. smooth/slick/crisp/no pre-travel/ and very repeatable... a tad under 2 lbs. is what I see and I have done them in both the newer Tupperware TG's as well as the ol' school Alum Cast TG's - KIDD warns they may be problematic.. NONE of mine have been a problem = ALL GOOD. And, the KIDD Trigger upgrade in the Kit feels very nice on the booger hook. Money very well spent! Since their Kit intro I have replaced many OEM's, VQ's and Power Custom internals... I have a baggie full of them.
KIDD Kit = Nun Beda.

Note that they are designed for the plastic trigger 10/22s. The metal housing triggers on 10/22w varied quite a bit in their tolerances, so you may or may not get some partial or full auto firing on some of the these with the Kidd kit. Have had it happen to me on a couple of the old metal housing trigger setups.

ive had quite a few different triggers over the years, and the drop in hammer kidd kits are the best. it is very close to the single stage trigger group they sell. you wont regret it.

I have the Kidd drop in trigger kit in one of my 10/22's . Not cheap but yes it's well worth it . It was an easy install and I ended up with a very nice crisp trigger pull with no take up or over travel and a short reset . I don't have a trigger pull gauge so I don't know what it weighs in at ...Kidd claims right around the 2lb mark .

Have 3 of them.

I dont think you will find anything better at that price point.
I installed a VQ kit on my FIL, SS delux and was pleased with it, as well. Not KIDD impressed, but if you dont know any better a VQ kit is hard to beat.

There are also weight tuning springs available for this kit. For those who have used them, can you tell me how they work?

Do they allow you to increase, or decrease the trigger pull weight or either?

Do they replace the trigger return spring?

YES..
And YES...

But they are designed for/with the KIDD Trigger Kit... with OEM triggers (and others) all bets are off... with the KIDD Tr. Kit I have found that the trigger return spring kit is helpful to tune them exactly where you want the break to be.

Kidd trigger kit is tops, l played around with the stock 10/22 trigger never got them to work to my liking, bought the Kidd kit would not work right with the metal housing Kidd states that it will not always work with metal housing, lucky l had a plastic 10/22 trigger housing put the Kidd kit in after adjustments it an was a joy to shoot, now no more creep or overtravel, nice 1-1/4 # trigger.

I've installed them in several 10/22's and they are a great trigger even for the price. Nothing against Brimstone, they do a great job making an awful OEM Ruger trigger great. But a Tier 2 is $78 + shipping both ways. So you are paying about the same as you would for a Kidd kit for a trigger that's not quite as good. IMO the only trigger you can get for a 10/22 that's better than the Kidd Trigger Job Kit is the Kidd 2 stage full unit.
