    So I have a 10/22 with a Kidd barrel, in a titan stock. Looking for ideas on a upgraded trigger for my rifle.

    I looked at the kids triggers, but I’m curious if there are any comparable triggers for a bit cheaper?

    There's a couple videos on line about making your stock trigger group better if you wanted to go that route . I did mine by reshaping the sear angle with a dremmel and polishing everything up. Changing the angle is critical cause if you go too far you will need a new hammer, so go slow. This change will lighten the trigger pull to 2.5# or so. There's also a hammer, sear replacement from aftermkt mfgs.

    Kidd has a kit for trigger upgrade. I put one in and the weight, slack, and break suit me better than a well known full replacement.
    Cost like 85$ took maybe 20 min. to install.

    Valquatsen VC10TH does a decent job of reducing trigger weight and smoothness of pull. I have used it for CMP competition.

    Consider brimstone gunsmithing... they make the stock trigger group fantastic

    If you had ever pulled one you would pay for the Kidd.

    There is no comparable trigger, to the Kidd 2 stage, it is the best 10-22 trigger IMO. I went thru this myself. Any money you put into something else could go into a Kidd.

    For sure. I put one on my 10/22 squirrel shooter with a thumbhole stock and 1x4 scope. For me it is all I could ask for with Eley 10x. Please note: I had to upgrade to another Eley brand for ejection purposes. They make one for semi-auto firearms with a tad more power and still acurate.

    I'm using the Kidd guide rod and light spring. I have had no cycling issues with any rounds I've tested.

    I put mine on a thumbhole stocked , long barreled gun also. The stove pipe and jamming issues were fixed before the trigger was added. I don't remember whose I used but a new extractor with the match chamber made all my issues go away. The new extractor had a hook that was bent further back. After installing I thought all the gurus on the net may be right to just bend the stock extractor around some it should work.

    Imo, there is no other trigger for the 10/22.
    Nothing else comes close!

    Be REAL careful if you modify the stock trigger. Do it wrong and you won't need a "bump Stock".:eek:

    No other trigger better than the Kidd.
