The Trigger Job
So. We have two options. The first is what we call the sweet spot, and that's where your trigger naturally wants to go, and where it's going to feel best. It's going to land between 2 and 2.5lbs, and it will feel great. This pull weight range is safe for this trigger group, it's light enough for target shooting, but not so light as to be unsafe for a beginning shooter, or a hunter. If you have a specific weight in mind (for example, you want it as light as it will go) feel free to make a note of that on your order when you send it in, and we will see what your trigger can do to accommodate that.
Click on the image at the top of the page with all of the triggers, to see the available color choices. We are a Cerakote Certified applicator, and every trigger is coated here in house. These are the colors we commonly stock, but in the future there will be options for truly custom colors. We have edited the above image to appear as true as possible in color to the finished product, but understand that there could be slight variations on color from one batch to the next, or when displayed on different monitors. If you are getting other parts Cerakoted, it is always best to do everything at the same time, so that the colors all match exactly.

I had the same problem as everyone else with the 10/22. After looking at forums and reviews it seemed very clear that Brimstone was the answer. let me say that I was not mislead. I never expected this huge of a difference! First, it was unbelievably fast. Including time in the mail I was only without my trigger group for 10 days. Next, the job turned out amazing! I had it on the bench 15 minutes after I opened my mail. Talk about a smooth clean break. The positive stop is a huge plus. And then I remembered the price! How in the hell are you gonna get anything near this quality for this price anywhere else? The only possible complaint I can think of is that they could've thrown in a sticker for my truck :). If you're considering getting this done, do it.
I recently had two tier 2 trigger jobs done by Brimstone and I am very pleased with the outcome. The triggers are very smooth, with almost no take up or over travel, and at 2 1/8 and 2 1/4 pounds they are far superior to the factory triggers. Turn around time was great, and responses to my questions were quick and informative. I had one very minor issue which was immediately solved by David. I have recommended Brimstone to two of my friends since then.
Read the titles of the first five reviews, they say it all! Now I luuvv my trigger too. I am reminded of a book called "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", where the author explores his Metaphysics of Quality. After reading this book my idea of "quality" has never been the same. I think David Seth/Brimstone Gunsmithing pursues this in his work. Professional, courteous service from beginning to end, and like others have said, at a remarkable value. Thank you Brimstone.
I had the tier 2 work done plus the tech pull release for a gun I am rebuilding. I absolutely cannot believe how fantastic the trigger job turned out. The 2 1/8 lb trigger is exactly what I needed for my target build. The blue trigger and mag release will match the blue Revolution stock very well. From this point forward, all my 10/22's will receive trigger work from Brimstone! You will not regret spending fewer $$ with Brimstone rather than a high end aftermarket trigger.
WOW, what a great addition to my 10/22. My 10/22 was a Christmas present from my wife over 25 years ago. I have literally shot thousands of rounds thru it hunting, target shooting and just plain plinking. The past several years I have participated in several Project Appleseed events and have made a few modifications to my rifle that have been recommended by others on the Appleseed forum. The trigger on my rifle was not terrible but I knew it could be better. I researched several options and had the chance to try a friend's rifle with a KIDD trigger group installed. He installed the KIDD in his newer 10/22 to move away from the polymer trigger group. The break was good but I didn't care for the fact that there wasn't any take up. After seeking reviews on the three tiers on the Appleseed forum, I decided that tier 2 was what I wanted and needed. I am very happy with the small but definitely there take up. I haven't measured it, maybe 1/16 of an inch movement. Then a very nice slightly over 2 lbs. break. I sent in my trigger group to late have it back in time for the Appleseed event I participated in last year, but I am looking forward to using it this year. Do not spend over $200 for a job that can be done for less than $100, you won't regret it.
So, little background on me...got bit buy the 10/22 bug over the last year and half. Have a couple takedowns and just purchased a Target Rifle as I wanted to see how precise I can get. Bought a certain four letter brand (starts with a K and ends with a D). Wonderful, drop in unit with great quality, but took a flyer on a recommendation to try Brimstone, specifically the Tier 2 work...all I can say is WOW!!! Very impressed!!! In my opinion this trigger is tuned better and smoother than previously said drop in trigger, at a better price. In fact, just picked up another OEM take off trigger to have David work up for me...it will be on the way to Brimstone shortly. Something to be said about hand crafting versus machined products. I grabbed a full width trigger and asked for the "sweet spot" pull...have to agree, it really is one "sweet" trigger. Don't hesitate, just give them your money and you will be an incredibly happy customer just like me! Thanks Brimstone, most appreciated!!!!
I'm one who doesn't believe you can truely evaluate a barrel on any weapon without a good trigger. I'm trying to wring all the accuracy I can from my 10-22 sporter, and the trigger is the first thing to get right so the barrel quality can be evaluated. I heard of Brimstone from a friend who was very pleased with their work and decided to give them a try. I sent them my old aluminum trigger group for a Tier 2 build and bolt release mod. I received my group a week later. The feel is smooth, the break is crisp at 2#... the work, quality, and value is excellent. I would recommend Brimstone to anyone, and intend to send as much business their way as I can. Thank you Brimstone!
I do not typically write reviews, but the work Mr. David Seth performed so exceeded my expectations that this review was almost required. Simply put, this may have been the best $85 (total) that I have ever spent. My 20 year old 10/22 had the typical 40 pound trigger. Now, I have a 2 pound pull, no over-travel and minimal reset. I don't know what kind of voodoo the folks at Brimstone Gunsmithing are into, but I do know this trigger is now magical... perfect. If you have any doubts as to this purchase, forget them and proceed to throw money at your computer. You will not regret it.
Just shot my tier 2 trigger this weekend and what a difference. Crisp, no over travel, almost no takeup, 2.5 lb......simply makes it a whole different gun. Even my wife, an inexperienced rifle shooter who loves shooting our new 10/22, remarked that it made a huge difference for her and was glad I spent the money on it. Now that's an endorsement I like to hear!
