    [h=2]Kidd 10/22 build: need direction[/h]
    I am planning on building a 10/22 on a Kidd receiver.

    I dont know if i should get:

    Single or two stage trigger? I dont want this to be strictly a target or range gun. Whats a practical safe weight for a trigger?
    Heavy barrel? Fluted barrel?
    Stock? I think i like those nice Hogue ones.​

    was gonna make a smartass remark about taptalk screwing you up because I saw this thread, and your benchmade thread were both posted twice. Then I redacted so it wouldn't go off topic right away (plus I saw they were intentional)

    I tried to delete them. I thought we could lock or delete threads? Not intentional just sloppy.

    we can when they are in the classified sections, not regular threads though.

    Two-stage if you plan on more benchrest than field time. 8oz/8oz pull weight is good for bench. You can make their two-stage more field friendly if you opt for slightly heavier second stage weight. I have their 1.5lb single stage for my squirrel gun and it works well.

    For bench I'd opt for their 20" match grade non-fluted. For field you might want to look at their new ultralightweight barrel in 16.5 inches... make sure to get them threaded with a cap. Check out some of the posts I have on the numerous KIDDs in my collection to get some ideas...

    I had a Magnum Research graphite (?) barrel. It was actually hard to hold still it was so light.

    I don't have that issue since I have a supressor on my squirrel gun. The extra muzzle weight keeps it very stable. Look into their 16.5 or 18 inch non-fluted match if you want a bit more weight. The fluted ones are beautiful but you give up slight bit of accuracy (but I mean SLIGHT)...
