Essential 10/22 Mods (Kidd)??



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm buying the new 10/22 takedown with target barrel and would appreciate your thoughts on what are the bare essential upgrades for the rifle? I read good things about the Kidd stuff so I may go that route.

The essentials would be appreciated so I can order and have them here when the rifle comes.

Thanks!

Essential to one person is unnecessary to the next. Depends on what you want. There's a ton of info already here, take some time and read.

If I was building a take down, small scope or red dot, do some trigger work and that's about it.

Thanks. Been reading but it's a bit overwhelming the amount of info and options. I think I'll do a red dot, trigger (kidd?) and the bolt release mods. Should I think about the extractor and other internals?

The first thing you should do is get a trigger!

I've built some high end 10/22's and have a KIDD trigger on one of them. That said, KIDD is top shelf and I don't think anything they make would be considered "bare essential" unless you're building for absolute gilt-edged accuracy. There's plenty of good stuff available that will do the job but won't cost KIDD money. A $40 Volquartsen target hammer may be all you really need. I bought the Power Custom innards for my takedown because I have them in my other guns and like the way they work. Particularly the bolt and magazine releases.

I bought a new takedown a month ago. My to do list was
1: send the trigger to Brimstone for tier 2,means a R/T trigger with overtravel stop among other things. The price of the trigger and spring kit alone makes this a no brainer, I don't think you can get a better deal
2: BSA 3X12 sweet 22 scope with quick disconnect rings(my own preference)
3: pin the firing pin, chamfer the bolt, deburr the receiver. You may want to send the bolt to someone like CPC, see my post under boo boos.
4: buy a Hogue thumbhole stock
5: run a lot of rounds thru it

+1 Yep, ADIBOO nailed it! KIDD single stage will do nicely.

Not essential but I might put some Skinner Take-Down sights on it for the hoot of using irons, and buy a lot of ammo and have a lot of fun!

Kidd single stage trigger was my first add on as well. If not the trigger assembly ensure you replace the stock bolt release mechanism. Other eSy and inexpensive items to replace are the bolt buffer and small charging handle, IMO.

I suggest you shoot it... allot.

You have the rifle, nowLearn how to do shoot it. Not only will you be better off as your building a foundation you can appreciate the changes you eventually make.

Know that triggers and parts dont make the shooter.

Also know that the TD's tend to move in the middle, dont "torque" them. LEARN by shooting why and how things do what they do and in the long run you will be far better off.

WHEN you do make upgrades, a drop in trigger is a good easy mod. I also will always do a auto bolt release, Wolffe spring kit along with a Kidd extractor and springs. Then shoot them ALLOT MORE!

I don't think the Skinner Take-Down sights won't work on the Takedown Target model (21133) that he's getting.

Yep you're correct, Skinners won't go on a target! My bad, good thing they aren't essential, eh?

No need to spend big money on a KIDD trigger. Just send yours off to Brimstone! That is money wisely spent.

Mags, ammo and shoot. Clean the thing a few times and study how it works.

A scope, if you want. Depends on what your intent is with the rifle.
A new trigger? Sure, if you are shooting in competitions or maybe hunting with the rifle. For fun shooting I'll repeat the first sentence in the quote above.
