Could not agree more I did take my Marlin 30/30 with me the other day. I put about 20 rounds down range after I shot the 10/22. Like the member shooting the shotgun. Shooting the 30/30 first I find causes me to be less accurate with the 22.

FOR ME a KIDD type trigger would be an unnecissary budget buster but a VQ hammer and such may be more realistic.
I have a Tony Kidd trigger, and it IS the best, but I had two other guns set up with the entire VQ tune up set. I then did a forth gun and sent the trigger to eBay member browns_sporting_goods. Some may want the VQ stuff for the name, but I sold both VQ tune up kits at a loss and now have the Kidd trigger and three triggers done by the afore mentioned eBay member. I haven't shot a Timney that was made for the 10-22, but the trigger job this guy does would be worth more to me than the VQ tune up, but is cheaper and good money spent in my book.

As for the Kidd, if I bought a complete VQ 22 semi rifle, the first thing I would do is sell the trigger group to some scmuck and put the Kid trigger in it.

I did a couple of trigger jobs by installing after market parts. One came out pretty well. The other never was a good as I wanted. I eventually replaced both with Kidd triggers. Nothing else I have tried is even close.

As stated previously, the Kidd has no peer that I have seen, but the Kidd does not adress the level of build that the OP has, he doesn't even have an aftermarket barrel yet! At that level he will see more improvement from a trigger job from browns_sporting_goods on eBay and a Kidd barrel for less money spent on the Kidd trigger alone!

True enough.....last summer I was bound and determined to put 50 rounds of hot turk ammo through a czech mauser......my pride made me finish, but I paid for it for a week. Nothing would have been accurate after that gauntlet.

Hornet Products also makes triggers for the 10/22. Prices are reasonsble and you have the factory unit to play with. I have used several of his triggers and highly reccomend them.

Hmmm....a quick perusal of Tony Kidd's site shows three barrels for the 10/22 rifle, ranging in price from $175 to $220.

Or are you saying that OP doesn't have an aftermarket barrel?

I have two newer 10/22 with the plastic trigger group. 1 has a Power Customs hammer/sear the other has a Hornet Products reworked trigger group. Both are about 2 3/4 lbs. The Hornet has less creep, it was under 100 bucks and quick and easy to put in. If I was shooting competition I'd go Kidd, but for everyday both of my triggers are far superior to the factory

Smoke,

OP = Original Poster of the thread. Reread what I wrote. The Orriginal Poster does not have an aftermarket barrel yet, and someone recomended he buy the Kidd trigger. I was stating that he could buy a Tony Kidd barrel and have his stock trigger reworked for less than the Kidd trigger alone and have a more accurate shooter for less money!!
