Lightbulb 10/22 trigger job

I sent my trigger assembly to T. T. Shooter's Technology (Todd Toenges) & got him to do the $107.50 trigger job for me. Excellent work & had it back in 2 weeks. I got his name from this forum & wanted to share my very good experience with his work. For me, I think that was better spent money, than buying a new trigger assembly that would have cost me more money. Just my experience & opinion.

Did mine myself... total cost... a few hours and some elbow grease.

Not paying someone else $100+ to do the same thing... priceless.

Sent my 96-22 trigger to Todd. I think it was worth what he charges for a trigger job. Bought the 96-22 while looking at a Cooper. Thought the Cooper cost to much then later on bought the Cooper. 96-22 is more fun for plinking.

BIG difference between the harry-homeowner stuff and what the better trigger guys can do. Sure a little polish can be an improvement, but what you get compared to the re-works...not the same. On RFC, TT's work is very highly rated, more so than the complete Vol TG2000 assembly. THAT says something about his work.
His work...just a guess, but I might have ben the one to recommend Todd's work. He's done a few for me and will get more. Depending on the build, some get a simply DIY drop-in kit, others TT's re-work, others complete assemblies (Jard or Kidd).

To the OP...VERY NICE! Let's hear about the overall performance of the gun.

Trigger jobs is like ported cylinder heads for cars. Some may be able to do a good job in the shed behind the house but most cannot and have to rely on people that offer the service to the public.
You can get a port job like this by yourself:


OR you can send it off and have it done:



I suspect trigger jobs would be about the same in terms of the outcome and satisfaction. Once the engine is together(or gun for this subject) you cannot see the work but once the pedal is mashed(or trigger) then it will become obvious.

Nicely put! As with performance from the engine as well as with a firearm, some are fine with one level while others want/demand more. It's because of these levels that some are satisfied with a DIY job and others want it done by a pro.

10/22 trigger job

Blk Hawk73 - it WAS one of your posts that gave me the info on T. T. Shooters.
Unfortunately, it's going to be a couple of weeks, til I can get to a place to actually shoot the 10/22. My son just bought a 10/22 in stainless with a black stock & loves it.

Which is not to say that a DYI job on a trigger is the same as one on a head.

The former only requires some sense of the relationships of sear engagement, a good set of files and polishing stones, patience, and a willingness to buy more parts if you get carried away and go too far.

Properly porting a head requires the equipment and talent necessary to check the relative flow through each of the cylinders.

And the replacement parts are a bit more expensive :-)

Apples:apples Applesranges Regardless, some want more than what one method provides. If one's got the time and patience for a thorough DIY polish and file job, fine and dandy. What one is satisfied with, others aren't and are not bothered having to pay a little for what they want. To many a simple change of the hammer is all they'll ever need and if that's all they've experienced, will think it's fantastic. Others draw the minimum at a much higher level. To each their own. So long as the one shooting it is satisfied...

I enjoy doing things on my own. Lots of people like going to the range(or track in a car) and say "I built it"(or done the trigger job and other mods). Some may just want it done for them by pros.

+1

You get the satisfaction of doing the work yourself, and knowing it was done right the first time... how many people go get work done on their car and then complain about poor work, or something being wrong? I do my own car work too, it doesnt take much other than some learning and some tools to do the same work... the "pros" didnt know everything when they started out either

I do the same things when I do my trigger groups and I only charge $50.00 for what he charges $107!!! For $25 more I also tune the bolt.

I'll put my work up against anyone out there.

Decided to give a few builds here that hadn't gotten any trigger attention a little DIY for a change. Dropped Volquartsen hammers into three and a Power Custom one in another. Never been big on the VOL stuff but with just a change of the hammers in each of these, the 3 Vol ones feel much better even though they do have a bit more pre-travel. Still not discounting the likes of TT or Clark but as these weren't hi-rung builds, and since it had been yrs since I did my own...why not.
