Santa had barely left the house before I had the screwdriver and hex wrenches out. I found a Hogue overmold and a tri-port Butler Creek Carbon Fiber Barrel under the tree. With a little fitting (more than I thought it would/should be) I had the barreled action fitted to the stock. With a 12x scope (borrowed from another rifle) and a brick of Remington target ammo that was found in my stocking, I was headed for the range. Accuracy was great!! Trigger pull wasn't!!! If I was very careful I could put five shots into a dime size group at fifty yards off a sand bag. The trigger definitely needs some work. Has anyone used a drop in spring kit or replaced the hammer and sear? What are some of the things that I can do myself to improve the trigger pull??


Frog :D

Unless you're very familiar with the 10/22 trigger and trigger work in general the drop in kits are the way to go. Brownells sells several and the Volkquartson(sp) version I have handled and they work well indeed.. great pull weight and minimal creep and backlash!! Adjusting the trigger on any auto rifle has a few quirks.. buy one of the kits, install, and enjoy.. good luck from the gunnut69

I sent one off to Williams Trigger Specialties when they were in White Heath, IL (if I 'members correctly). I understand they've moved and haven't had contact with them since.

They did good work but an Anschutz it'll never be unless you drop in one of Mr. Jewell's jobbies (which cost more than the complete rifle...)

The easiest trigger job you can do on your new 10-22 (first thing you should do) is buy a Volquartsen target hammer for about $35.00.
This should reduce your trigger pull to around 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 pounds. . . You will notice the difference in your groups right away.
The installation is very easy as the instructions are good.

Browning BLR 22

:)

I have a similar problem or concern.

I purchased a Browning BLR 22 at a show. A beautiful gun. The action is what sold me. so short and smooth. That was until I put ammunition in the gun. On the range I was very disappointed. The trigger release was stiff, not what I thought I bought.

Any recommendations
