10/22 triggers

Hello everyone, new to forum. I'm needing some advice on the 10/22 trigger assembly. I have a Charger and a Stainless target model. I bought a volquartsen trigger for the target rifle. ( haven't shot it yet). My question is , is the stock target trigger better than the stock Charger trigger.

Did you buy just the trigger or the trigger kit?

I've read that the stock Target is around 4lbs. Can't find any specs about the stock Charge trigger pull.

Theoretically the different 1022 models all come with the exact same trigger group. So the target models trigger is the same as the charger (the action is a 1022). The volquartsen 2000 trigger housing and group you bought should drop in and be significantly better than the stock triggers.
Alternatively you could just add a volquartsen sear as it is the biggest bang for your buck.

In that case, VQ > target > charger.

The target trigger is better than the charger trigger because the charger has the same crappy trigger (6-8 lbs) that comes on all 10/22s. The target trigger has a lighter trigger pull (around 4 lbs), but it's not going to be as light as the VQ. If I were you, I would put the VQ on the rifle, then put the target trigger on the charger, and save the charger trigger for a rainy day, sell it, or buy a trigger kit and install it.

Thanks for all the advice guys. The VQ is already in the target rifle. It feels sweet, can't wait to shoot it. I was thinking the target trigger would be slightly better than the Charger. I will look into the VQ sear. My 10 yr. old really loves the Charger and the Target model for that matter, but he asked if he could have the Charger someday. I told him that they would all be his some day. That really got his mind to cooking. He cleans his toy box out before we go to the range for targets. That's makes us both happy. Thanks again, CReed

Have a TG2000 and just not too impressed when compared to far less costly alternatives. Have gotten better trigger performance from simple DIY kits, the Kidd one specifically. Much of the VQ stuff is, in my opinion, more of a brand thing that anything else. It's that brand name that is being paid for.
If your happy though, that's the biggie. As with any improvement, making one component a higher level doesn't compensate for a lesser one elsewhere. IOW, you'll never see the fill potential of it, staying with stock barrel and set-up.

The Target Model 1022 had/has an improved trigger pull over the stock 1022. Yes right at 4lbs. as opposed to 6lbs + on a stocker. That may or not be the case presently.
