I had mine done by a local shop here. The gunsmith there does good work. He redid the trigger group with Power Custom parts (I don't even know what he did to it, honestly). It works like a dream. I have an adjustable trigger with a 2 pound trigger pull. Which is what I wanted. I don't care how he did it, but he did it well.

I hear that the Kidd triggers are nice if you can afford them. And the Hornet Custom triggers are supposed to be really nice as well. Thinking about building another 10/22 and doing it with the hornet to see how it performs.

Hey,
I put this kit on my 10/22 and it made a huge difference in trigger pull.

After watching I don't know how many videos I finally got the courage up and put the Volquartsen hammer kit on my 10/22. Then went a little bit further and took the trigger group all the way down so I could replace the springs. Very happy with the results and I didn't have to spend 200.00 for the complete trigger assembly.
Not that I would mind having the Volquartsen trigger. It's just that the hammer kit is 160.00 less. It's not really that complicated.

Brimstone. Folks rave about him on Rimfire Central. 35 bucks for the basic job. Just send him the trigger group.

I have tried the shims(boo), bought a Volquartsen kit(good), and done my own(best).
On mine, it was a matter of simply squaring, and polishing(1600 grit) all of the mating surfaces. It ended-up much better than the VolQ kit, and cheaper.
But if you aren't comfortable polishing surfaces, then DON'T.

I replaced parts on mine...not all at once... Michigan Center Outdoors has a nice video...

I started out with the VQ hammer in the link posted above...made a day and night difference...cut the pull-weight basically in half...by my guess around 3 to 3.5 lbs...used the shims from triggershims (where I bought the VQ hammer) and no regrets over it but the shims are definitely not a "must have" imo...the trigger still had tremendous amount of pre and post travel however...

Decided to go with the Power Custom adjustable sear from midwayusa...

Search results for: power custom adjustable sear 10/22

They have the sear/hammer combo as well...I can't say for sure about the power custom hammer reducing the pull as the VQ does but I would tend to believe it would be similar...and they sell a fixture for lapping the parts for a lighter pull...which I have not done...

I drilled and tapped my factory aluminum trigger for a 4mm x 8mm set screw for over-travel stop...drilled an access hole for the adjustable sear...reshaped the trigger more like the VQ...love that...all of it...

If you have a plastic trigger I would either get the power custom kit with their trigger or the VQ trigger...they are both aluminum...the VQ comes with a lot less curve (I love that) and already has a over-travel stop screw installed for you...the power custom is curved (easily filed to fit/shape if you like) and would have to be drilled tapped for a travel stop...

Volquartsen Target Rifle Trigger Ruger 10/22 10/22 Mag Black

If I had it to do over again I would get the Power Custom hammer and adjustable sear together as a package it would have been cheaper...and got completely done a lot sooner...the adjustable sear and over-travel stop are a major improvement to say the least...taking up the slop and stopping the over-travel stop are at least as valuable as the lighter pull imo...if I had to choose between re-shaped with much less slop but harder pull or sloppy with light pull...I would choose less slop and harder pull...

Later on I might polish/lap mine as suggested above but for now it is light enough for me...

It still has some creep to it...but not much compared to stock...

No experience with the others mentioned but VERY glad I did my own my way...not hard and while the 10/22 still has the crappiest trigger of any gun I have ever owned it is now so many times better it is not funny...

I think I spent in the ball park of $100 over-all...some will say that is too much for a 10/22 and they may be right...don't know...would hate to go back to something less...

Ain't upgrades grand?? ; ) I went with Power Custom on all my parts and their titanium if available. I'm not sure how you got in around $100? I must be close to $350+? I'm not bitchin' though, I love my 10-22!! Shims made a real difference on mine? Just about killed all pre travel? The links you posted are sure to help out the peeps' lookin' for parts.

lol...you guys are funny...

I am only counting the money I spent on parts that are actually related to the trigger...

Hammer and shims... about $50... Adjustable sear... about $40... I already had set screws/tools/drills/taps and my factory trigger is Aluminum not plastic... did not need to purchase a new trigger...

If I had it to do again I would do all the same but get the $70 Power Custom kit in the link instead of getting the VQ hammer and then the PC sear seperately...add the VQ trigger with stop for another $30... still $100... then all you have to do is drill one small hole for access to the sear screw...easy as pie with a hand drill and 5/32 twist drill....

If someone likes the PC trigger better the PC kit with adjustable sear/hammer/trigger is still right about $100...

I come up with about $100 no matter what unless you have to go buy tools...at least for what I have anyway...

Removed due to poor judgement. Must be some trigger job for $100?

Hey Tony,

I can see how you would take offense to what the other guy had to say but I was just trying to answer your question as to how I came up with $100 and tried to make it clear that I was limiting the $100 ONLY to the parts mentioned...that was specifically to answer what I thought was an honest question as best I can...I spent a $100 and got a specific result...simple as that...

Also...tried to make it clear as to what those parts did for me and and make it clear that I was not commenting on anything anyone else had because I can only speak to what I bought...what I did...how much the parts cost...and links to where I got the parts...

If that is running my mouth what do call what you are doing...???

I said it has the crappiest trigger of any gun I have ever owned...and that is still had creep...did you catch that...???

So how about posting the details of all your titanium and what you got for your money...

Otherwise...I am sure you know where to put the titanium... right...

I spent too much on the gun...already said that too...but I guess an itemized list is in order here although it has nothing to do with the topic of 10/22 trigger...which is oddly located in the optics forum... but who cares anyway...

I have had the gun for nearly 15 years now and don't count the initial purchase...only the recent modifications that I decided to do to make the gun worth keeping for me to have fun with...

Stock... $80
Barrel... $175
Sights... $50
Mag Release... $40

Trigger Parts... $100

Probably going to buy a scope and mounts...but maybe not... $200-$400

I don't really count the scope either because it can go on other guns I have...so can iron sights...

I am not here to judge how others spend their money just to share my opinions on what I have and get others opinions on what they have...and learn from others as to what malfunctions come up...why they occur...and what to do when they happen...

As for the all the crap in the signature...that is intended to explain in advance to others what I already have so as hopefully not to waste time repeating it over and over again...not that it works...but that why I did it...

Other than that if anybody doesn't like what I have or my opinions about what I like and why or whatever they can write a letter to their congressional representative...it will get a better result...lol...
