Metal trigger guard, trigger and mag release

Do a search for "Power Custom Gun Parts". They bought the molds for the trigger group, trigger and mag release and sell the aluminum one's like used to come on the 10-22 for $35.00 for all three plus $5.00 shipping.
I just got mine and the quality is just as good as the Ruger parts, if not better.
I know the plastic trigger groups won't break as easy, but I think you get a better trigger job with the aluminum one's because they have zero flex.

Best Regards, John K

Or simply buy a Jard or Kidd and REALLY get a better trigger. I've still yet to see any issues with the polymer ones that everyone else tells of.

The parts come with the same paint as the new 10-22's, that crappy wrinkle black.
I think that I'm going to bead blast my 10-22 metal parts and then spray them with Black semi gloss Aluma-Hyde II from Brownells using an air brush.
I hate the rattle cans. The Air brush really puts down a nice even paint job. You can get the paint on thinner and still have 100% coverage.
Be sure to take a mediun stone and stone the inside of the trigger housing to flatten out the paint, just don't get into the metal. You can get a very smooth surface and still have solid black showing.

When it comes to the plastic trigger guard, I'm an old gunsmith who likes metal, even if it is aluminum. In my opinion, plastic is for toys. I'm sure that they work just fine, it's just me.
I used to make a lot of parts from metal stock when one was not available for an old or odd weapon. I would then harden them if they needed it, so I'm used to doing presicion metal work with files and stones.

And as for the Jard, Kidd or other trigger groups, they are fantastic if you have the money. I don't have the $$$ coming in that I used to.
I can do a darn good trigger with factory parts and a few shims.
My trigger jobs are very close to the Jards. The Jard is hard to beat with it's two lever trigger system.
I can use the money saved to do other projects, besides, my 10-22 shoots great and I'm not entering any contests where every last little thing you do may be needed to take home the bacon.
I also take a great deal of pride in making my own parts and doing my own mods.
Anyone with the money can buy a quality or modified part, but doing it yourself and having people comment on how good it is gives a person more pride in their weapon and I have a lot more fun doing it myself.
There is nothing wrong with buying parts. It's just that doing it myself gives me something to do and keeps me out of the bars
I'm working on a couple of accuracy mods that no one else has done to try and make my 10-22 Carbine shoot as well as a bull barreled 10-22 that may have had a few mods, but is not a full blown target rifle. If I can pull it off, I will be one happy guy. I'm not sure if it will outshoot that type of 10-22 with average mods, but it would be a head turner if it did and I'm having a great time making the mods and parts. That's what gunsmithing is all about.
I've got a couple of things up my sleeve for the Mini 14 also that I am working with another gunsmith on. Only time and some expermintation will tell if we are sucessful.
Best regards, John K

Great, I should add that I just looked at it again last night and it's just a Matt black, not the wrinkle paint.
I turned a small post out of aluminum, drilled and countersink it, painted it to match and put the post on the mag release to speed up dropping the mag out. Kinda like the post that Kidd sells only mine is not clear aluminum with cuts that have brightly colored paint in them. They are a little ugly in my point of view and too wide.

Best Regards, John K

I second that, I have a Clark Trigger Group with the Trigger Job and this is a nice setup that does not hurt the pockets. Go with Clark!

got my trigger guard today. i should note that it is actually OEM ruger with crinkle coat finish, i guess they bought up a lot of them, although he indicated that they may start producing their own version. great deal for that price, i have been looking on numrich's for an OEM part for a long time. Clark's is a great dealer. i will say that removing and reinstalling the safety was an, umm, adventure. thanks again for this great info.

Clark may have bought the last of the aluminum parts. I do know that they bought the molds to produce them.
The paint on the reciever of my new 10-22 looks more krinkly (Is that a word, I don't thing so) than the trigger guard that I got that looks more like it has been blasted and painted. It's more matt than krinkled, but close enough.

Clark did purchase the last of the metal Ruger 10/22 trigger guards and Ruger's mold has been destroyed. Limited supplies are available - prices are subject to change.

Thanks for that info. I'm sure that someone will make an aluminum one, but at what price.

Plenty of aluminum ones already available. (Kidd, TI, Vol, RT) If you want one bad enough and it matters so much to have the oh so superior polymer, does a few dollars really matter?
Still laugh at the hypocrisy of how a poly trigger guard is so horribly inferior yet everyone raves about Glocks, Hk's, XD's, and outfits their AR;s with all sorts of polymer stuff. Guess those trigger guards take a real heavy beating compared to the duty guns. Although.......I've yet to hear of any breaking either way.
