Timney or Volquartsen trigger group?

I recently purchased a unfired prev. owned Ruger 10-22LR. I prefer aftermarket triggers to stock. Which has a better reputation-Timney or Volquartsen? Both complete trigger groups are on sale. I will polish the bolt surface a little and put in a Volquartsen bolt kit. Other than that, gun will stay stock as it's just a 50-100 yard plinker. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. Ammo preferences? Thanks!
Bob

I know I certainly wouldn't spend the money for a VQ assembly again. Have better triggers from $80 reworks. Now unless you're gonna upgrade the barrel and get some GOOD optics, don't spend the $$$ on a complete assembly. You'd never have it be at it's full potential regardless of which you were to buy. Best suggestion I can give is to simply go with the Kidd trigger kit. It in itself provides a better trigger than the VQ and is second only to the full Kidd assemblies.

I agree with BlkHawk73. Just get the Kidd trigger kit if you aren't going to work up the rest of the rifle. It'll be the best benifit to cost ratio for you.

Thanks to all who responded! I appreciate the info! Although this gun is just a plinker, I like a light trigger that breaks like glass. Spoiled I guess! I use a scoped Winchester 52c for fine work.

Ruger triggers are just plain crappy. I have a Kidd 2 stage trigger and will never have anything else in my competition guns. Worth every penny and then some. They make a really really big difference. Not cheap by any means - but then the best never is. Spend once, cry once and never have to look back.

Two Stage Trigger

Stock Ruger triggers really suck! I'm leaning toward the Kidd trigger kit. I watched a video, and I do read instructions, so to save money, I think that's the way to go, at least for now.
I did the triggers on my 2 Vaqueros (old style) years ago for cowboy shooting and what a difference it made!

Can't see you being disappointed. Have tried a bunch of the various available choices so I can kinda give an opinion based on more than just a single experience. Anyone can try Brand A and say it's great but until they try others, it's all they know an their "great" could be not-so-great when compared to another option.

+3 I put a Kidd trigger in my 10/22, bought the spring kit for the trigger and it is a perfect trigger, the over travel set screw makes a world of difference that you get with it also.
