    Alright, I finally got a 10/22 and it needs a trigger upgrade. I mean it BADLY needs it. So, I don't want to turn it into a thousand dollar rifle, what's the best bang for the buck? A buddy at work out the Volquartsen match hammer kit in his. <$40 and it's pretty nice. Volquartsen hammer and seat kit? Kidd? The Ruger trigger pack upgrade?

    Ruger BX trigger, you can sometimes find it as low as $50. I will say that Volquartsen, Kidd or Geissele will be better, but you may pay 4 to 5 times the price. With the BX you will still get around a 3 1/2 pound trigger, just not metal like the others.

    You kind of answered your own question. I have a Kidd 2 stage for a project I'll eventually finish. That will most likely be most expensive firearm I'll ever own. I bought a BX trigger for my 30 year old 10/22 that will otherwise remain stock. I'm fairly lazy, but it will go on soon. If you can do the sub 40 job and accomplish your goal, that's a great solution. That's my mentality with my stock rifle. Good luck and enjoy

    The bx trigger is a good trigger.

    My original 10/22 trigger has the stock sear, power custom springs, titanium firing pin and extracter, and bolt buffer;it also has thousands of rounds through it. IT PULLS consistently at 2.5lbs on a Lyman scale and has never failed.

    I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on mine either (well, beyond the Mist-22 on the takedown). I merely polished the factory hammer and seer, and the trigger is pretty darned good just doing that. On one I did lightly file the hammer too, but VERY little was needed (it was too gritty from the factory for my taste).

    Agreed. This is your best bang for your buck.

    Ruger BX trigger. I have updated with Kidd auto bolt-release (as that's a REALLY nice feature to have), as well as the Kidd extended mag release. Trigger group done.

    I've added the cushioned buffer pin dealio from Kidd too.

    Was looking at that the other day. Do you notice a difference with that?
