My old Chief AJ trigger aint cutting it anymore. Ruger BX is even heavier. Help!
The triggers from Kidd are the best I have used and the single stage goes to 1.5 lbs while the two stage goes to 3oz / 3oz
I installed a Kidd singled stage, in my 1022, yesterday. After a bit of tweaking it breaks at an average (of 10 pulls) pull weight of 15.6 oz. And, yes it does pass the bump test.
I have both Single and Two Stage Kidd Triggers installed. The hunting/walk-about guns have the Single Stage units and all break at a clean 2 lb - 8 oz. The guns that go on the bench have the Two Stage Triggers and break at 8/8 oz.
IMO, all money well spent and would do it again. PLUS Kidd is a great outfit to deal with. My limited experience with their Customer Support should be the standard other companies aspire to.
I have about 3Kidd triggers and NOTHING can beat them.In my opinion they are the gold standard. Yes they’re expensive but they’re worth every penny! Buy one and don’t look back .
Just a clarification on the single stage pull weight setting. I only use this rifle for bench rest shooting. I agree with WileyC that a walk around rifle trigger should be in the 2 to 2 1/2 lb range.
I am running two 10/22's for Benchrest.. both were ordered in the 3&3 configuration.. but when you receive them.. they are set at like 4.5 oz on each stage without being able to feel the distinction between the stages.. i now can feel the different stages and they are much lighter.. i think on one the second stage is pretty close to 2 oz.. lets put this way.. think about it and it is gone!
Wife and I have Kidd triggers and they can't be beat.
The Kidd 2 stage will change the lock time for 10-22. It is as fast as a bolt gun. I gave a 3oz/3oz and a 8oz/8oz. All of them are fully adjustable up to 1.25lb /1.25 lb.
I guess the consensus is...Kidd. thx guys
Just to throw something else in there, I have a Jard and it is very nice. Not sure the weights they have available though.
Edit: just checked their site and can't find the 10/22 trigger anymore
yeah, my understanding is that Jewel tried too.. but they left on the by
Just get a Kidd.
I have one of the original Jewells. Arnold quit making them when Ruger wouldn't sell him the housings anymore. Beside my BR and hunting triggers, I've had his AR trigger and an early Savage trigger.
Arnold told me that the Kidd was the best that he has seen.
Yeah.. my Jewel AR two stage trigger was great till it gave up the ghost..
So you contacted Jewell and they refused to help you? Oh, you bought a Timney to replace it.
M-K is what i put in it..
The Milazzo-Krieger is a good trigger. My Jewell AR trigger went to Shilen for one of their rifles. I have the Milazzo-Krieger and Geissele NM triggers. Not being a serious AR guy, these do what I ask of them.
I'm cheap and I bought the Kidd "Trigger job kit" for my 10-22. I was so impressed with it, I later bought a barreled action from them. They are that good.
