custom trigger on 10-22

Does anyone have personal experience with the "Power Custom" trigger for the Ruger model 10-22??

I am comtemplating the purchase of one, and would like opinions from those who have used them.

T.I.A.

Ben

I have five 10/22s that I've rebuilt and I used it in one of them. Used a Volquartsen in another. Then I tried a Kidd and it was like the clouds parted and sexy angels showed up with cupcakes and candy. The Power Custom was a lot better than the factory trigger but I like the Kidd way more than the others I tried.

All directly proportional to costs

Not sure what you mean by "Trigger", just the trigger, complete trigger housing or "target-hammer. I have installed a number of Power Custom tarket hammer kits. I prefer the Volquartsen kits. ...

Been there as well and they are good but I have yet to experience anything spiritual. ....

Thank you gentlemen. Yes, I was referring to the complete kit.

I guess I need to do a bit more research.

I have used the Volquartsen hammer (trigger job in a box) kit which is similar, I also own two professionally hand tuned factory triggers and have a couple of Volquartsen complete trigger assemblies. I also own a high-buck Kidd 2-stage and it's so far better than anything else I've used on my 7 10/22s that all I can say is wow. I've really been tempted to try the Kidd trigger job in a box for polymer trigger assemblies, but it's expensive. Anyway here is my list from best (top) to worst (bottom).
  1. Kidd 2-stage trigger (~$300)
  2. intentionally blank
  3. intentionally blank
  4. intentionally blank
  5. Volquartsen complete 2-1/4lb trigger assembly (~$220)
  6. Hand tuned 2-2.25lb factory trigger from anyone of 3-4 specialists (~$75-120)
  7. Drop-in 1.7-2.5lb trigger job in a box kit ($40-110).
  8. Untouched 4-1/2lb factory target trigger
  9. Old 6-7lb or so factory trigger
My advice is if you can't afford a $200-300 trigger then spend $75 to have it had tuned.

I've got a Kidd single stage and love it. Real easy to drop into your trigger housing. I'm thinking about building another 10/22 and this time i'm thinking about a 2 stage Kidd. Check on rimfirecentral.com in the 10/22 section. Lots of information over there.

Why not try honing your trigger on a stone? Go very slow and don't change the angles. We used to do that back in the '80s before all the aftermarket triggers came out.

Same here and learned how to do it the hard way. Since then, found this link that has been a good aid to my learning curve. .....
