Metal Trigger Group?



Log in to see fewer ads
Is it true that some folks still prefer/want the "old" 10/22 metal trigger group?

I prefer the Ruger polymer trigger housings over the Ruger pot metal ones. I will take a Kidd milled aluminum over either of them any day though.

Me too. But I sometimes see that someone is looking for a metal trigger group.

Brimstone says the Poly ones are more precise easier to mod, looks wise I like the metal...

I prefer the aluminum one just for feel. I have glocks for my plastic feel.

I do not understand why. I recently installed a Kidd trigger kit in a Ruger polymer trigger housing and it is outstanding...just marginally less so than the full Kidd drop-in unit. From what I have read, getting the Kidd trigger kit to work in a Ruger metal housing is hit and miss due to the manufacturing tolerances.

Poly for me. I have experience with both

The old ones that came with an alloy trigger housing stay that way but I hardly if ever shoot those anymore, plus we can't butcher all the old ones. Dr G is the one that ruined me after I built one starting with a bare non Ruger receiver.

Recently delved into diy triggers. Fi. First , because I broke the metal trigger guard on an oem metal trigger group, i put the guts into a poly housing. While it worked fine out side of the gun , it wouldnt reset while in the receiver. If I pushed the trigger forward it would, but that aint right. So I scavenged another oem metal trigger group from Numrich , and swapped in the guts,it worked fine. The original trigger came with a Brown Precision Custom Team Challenger , and had been seriously worked on. It was, and is again a spectacular trigger. Since I now had an empty poly housing I was searching for parts to put a trigger into it. Didnt think the parts from the scavenged oem would work , and across a spectacular deal on a VQ complete trigger kit, everything but the safety and the hammer strut. So i bought that and put it in. Its a very nice trigger .

But , I stiil had the bug , and when a metal oem trigger group came up on PIF, i snagged it. Thanks Just to see what I could do with oem parts. Read and watched everything about trigger work that I could find. Then , a need came along and I made it into the trigger for my HM2 build. Swapping the spings was easy, and polshing the parts was easy, stoning the hammer cut was a bit daunting, but i figured it out , and got a good trigger. Really, the hardest part was getting the shims into place at all the little pin holes. https://www.ebay.com/itm/27481406062...53.m2749.l2649 And it comes with a slave pin.

Heres some tips that were useful to me. Get a slave pin for the trigger sear disconnector unit. So you can assemble it before you stuff the parts in. Use a fork to press down on the hammer strut spring so you can slide off and on the little clip.

Polish the heck out of the return spring cap and hole so it runs smoothly.

Will I do it again? Nope , I have 3 unmodified bx triggers, an$ am gonna sell m on ebay and buy a Kidd!

I prefer the polys for the reasons stated. However, if one has an older model that shoots fine then I wouldn't switch out the trigger that came with it.

Could always buy that one that's been in the trading post for the past 6 months or more- keeps fluctuating between $150-$200 when VQs are selling next to it for $225.

I've been watching that one for a while. The funny thing is since it's been for sale in the Trading Post there have been a few of the same one's for sale as well. I don't remember what the price was for all of them but I think they averaged around $30.

Toomany22s just got one from PIF and I got one from there as well a while back. The seller knows that it's not worth what he's trying to get for it as many people commented to him early on before he turned off comments.
