Brimstone triggers BX conversion or Tier 1

I am fixing to send a trigger group to Brimstone. I have a BX which they can take down to 1.5 pounds or less. I also have the stock trigger group that can get to 2 pounds and have all the pre travel taken out. I mostly hunt but like to tune everything as perfectly as I can from a bench. Any one who has experience with these trigger options, I would like to hear your input.

I have the tier3 and tier 2 triggers from brimstone .I think I have mine set at 2.5 lbs. Was money well spent. I think you will be happy. You can read a lot of reviews on rimfirecentral.

Ok I have sent the factory trigger assembly for the tier 1 job. I will be selling a slightly used BX trigger group.

I polished my BX group and got it to a low of 1.9lbs and a max of 2.3lbs over 10 pulls. After I put in an over travel stop my wife compared it to a mouse click. 400, 1000 and 1500 grit sandpaper and a six pack is all it took.

I'm sure you will be happy with your tier 1, I know I like mine. I have 3 Brimstone triggers, T2,T1 & BX. I bought them in that order and each one is just a little bit nicer than the previous one. My T1 breaks at 1lb 14oz with absolutely no creep or overtravel and the torsion spring makes the reset much better than the plunger and coil spring.

If I had seen this post sooner I would have recommended that you send him the BX. It's that much nicer that I think it's well worth the extra money. It has a bit of pretravel like a two stage trigger but then it breaks clean at 1lb 2oz

It's not to late, when you get your tier one back you can just ship the BX back in the same box. Try them both and then sell the one you like the least, or keep them both and start on your next 10/22.

Wow I struggled with which one to send until I saw the video on his web sight. I may do what you said my friend wants the one that I don't. I shot his 10/22 Take down today and thought the safety was on, It was the heaviest trigger Ive seen.

Very pleased

Ok I my Brimstone tier one came in today and Im very pleased. It took 16 days from sending to getting it back. It was worth the wait. It is a little stiff but breaks in perfectly the same place every time. This thing has 0 pre travel and very little travel to reset. It came with a paper showing a pull test of 2lb 6oz. I have a Mark 3 with a Timney sear in. The pistol has a way lighter break but this Brimstone is a very clean break no creep. I would do this again over the 2 stage option. This finishes my rifle for fall squirrels and grouse.
