I want to get an aftermarket 10/22 trigger. What's a good, reasonably priced ( up to $100) one?

The easiest way to improve the 10/22 trigger is to buy a Ruger BX trigger. I have one and it has a nice crisp 2 lb pull. It costs about $60 online, just not at shopruger.com.

I guess I got lucky mine is right under 3lbs off of the shelf. So I didn’t have to spend those extra dollars everyone else seems to do.

Depending on how light you are looking for there are several options.
Send the factory trigger into Brimstone and spend 70.00.
Buy a trigger kit and rebuild the factory unit yourself.
Buy a Ruger BX as already mentioned.
Buy a rifle basix unit used if you can find one.
There’s a start for ya.

Kidd trigger parts work pretty smooth.for me. Better than my BX...

I bought a Jard 1 pound trigger for a 10/22 years back and have kept it as 10/22s come and go in my safe. It is way ahead of any parts replacement tune-up I've seen, better than the Ruger BX by a lot. Not sure it is quite as good as Kidd or Volquartsen .. lighter pull weight but a touch more creep, so a tradeoff.

Whether someone else would appreciate it, don't know. I'm used to Jewell triggers set 4-6 ounces on my centerfire varmint rifles. If you like that, then I'd say the Jard is worth a try. If you don't appreciate it, or don't think you need it, then probably don't bother with the Jard.

... and, finally ... this is a sample of 1. Maybe every other trigger Jard ever made sucks, I don't know, all I know about is **my** particular example and it is pretty damned good.

Thanks for the input guys - I sprung for the BX to the tune of $70.

Here's a Jard unit.

I've rebuilt older 10-22 triggers with Clark and Volquartsen parts. The Jard is good, has a different safety and internal set up.

My Ruger rebuilt triggers are actually better, IMO, than the Jard.

Shot the BX trigger this weekend. It's better than the OEM offering. Fixed the problems I was having - namely the trigger hanging up and not fully resetting for the next shot.

I have tried most of them and Kidd has been my favorite.

Same here, I have tried most of them and Kidd is the best.

The trigger job kit in a poly housing is the best return on money spent. I can get them down to less than a lb reliably. Or anywhere in between up to 3 lb with his spring kit..

I wish Ruger would just make the BX trigger standard, I think they do with certain rifles. But then they couldn't make money selling them.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

I have owned a Kidd and currently have a Timney Calvin Elite that I am very happy with. It’s a very nice unit and I really like being able to swap trigger shoes, length of pull, etc

Likewise. Kidd is the best I've used.

It will spoil you.
