The Tier 3 Trigger Job
This is an outstanding entry level value. It will not give you the equivalent of a $300 Kidd trigger. But if you like your 10/22 as it is and you don't plan on turning it into a $1,000 custom benchrest rifle, then this is a great option. This is not a full tilt competition trigger, that's what the Tier 2 and 1 are for. But this trigger WILL feel better than the new Ruger BX triggers, and if the 10/22 came with this trigger in the first place, there would not be this huge aftermarket surge of trigger options. The most important thing is that we re-work every part of this trigger in some way, which improves every aspect of the trigger motion as explained below. Most of the drop in hammer kits ONLY give you a lighter trigger pull, but everything else is still rough and sluggish.
All the Details
For this level of work we are not installing any new parts, merely re-working what you've already got. The factory trigger group is a two stage trigger, which means there are four elements to it's motion.
The pre-travel. This is that empty motion before the trigger hits 'the wall.' From the factory there is typically a lot of that motion, it's rough, and it's very heavy. This basic level of work will not change the amount of pre-travel, but it will make it considerably lighter and smoother. If you are starting with a polymer trigger group, we can often get this motion perfectly smooth. If you have a metal group, we can't guaranty that, and actually recommend that you jump up to the Tier 2 work.
The Break. This is the actual snap of the hammer releasing. From the factory this is usually not a snap at all, but rather a long and crunchy motion which picks up where the crunchy pre-travel leaves off. This results in the line between the pre-travel and the break becoming blurred, and it makes it difficult to know exactly when your shot is going to break when you are trying to make accurate shots. After our trigger work, the break will be glass-rod crisp. Imagine a glass rod suspended between two points, and you start to put pressure on it. That rod will not bend or move before it simply shatters without warning. That's how our break will feel after the work is finished. The amount of pressure it takes for the trigger to break is what is referred to as the trigger pull weight.
The Reset. This is the distance the trigger travels forward after the firearm cycles, before you hear the click of the trigger resetting. Proper trigger control dictates that you do not let up on the trigger all the way, rather just to the reset before you begin to pull again. It also makes sense that the shorter the overtravel, the shorter the reset. Since this basic trigger job does not remove any of the overtravel, you will also have as long of a reset as you do now. However from the factory the reset is usually quite rough. We will polish the internals so that your reset is very smooth, and very positive. Again, same as the pre-travel, a polymer group will have a much smoother reset with a Tier 3 job than a metal group will.
It's difficult to get into real detail about the work without giving away trade secrets, but we do NOT stone any engagement surfaces. We do polish any surface that rubs to a mirror finish, and we do modify something on just about every part of the trigger. When finished, you will still have a positive sear/hammer engagement for safety, and the sear will be fitted to the safety as needed.
The Sweet Spot is our most popular option. It's wherever your trigger naturally wants to go, and where it's going to feel best. It will be between 2 and 2.5lbs.
Complete shipping instructions and information can be found here.
$9.50 return shipping and handling will be added to your order when you check out, regardless of how many trigger jobs you purchase. Once you have purchased this service you will get a confirmation email with all the shipping and packing instructions. Print that off, and include it with your trigger.
We are currently processing triggers on Tuesday and Friday, and doing trigger work seven days a week. This means that you may not get an email immediately when it arrives here, for example, if your trigger arrives on a Saturday. In this case, your trigger will not be opened, the order processed, and you emailed until the following Tuesday. We have a guarantied one week turnaround time on trigger work, but it's usually much quicker than that. When finished, you will get another email saying that your trigger is finished and shipped, with a tracking number.
Thanks for your interest! Feel free to contact us at any point, and happy shooting.

I am extremely glad that I chose Brimstone for my first dive into custom trigger work. Sent in a 6lb trigger and got back a 1lb 14oz trigger (on my gauge) that is like butter. He will get the next 2 for sure.
The Tier 3 trigger job is SO much better than the Volquartsen target hammer I had for years, at the aimilar cost. I HIGHLY recommend it!!!
I am extremely happy with the work of Brimstone. Sent a new 10/22 trigger that was heavy and rough and it came back smooth and breaking at 2lb 3oz. Liked the work so much that I immediately sent the trigger from my old 10/22 in and it came back smooth at 2lb 2oz. Great results! If you own a 10/22 you owe it to yourself to have Brimstone do a trigger job on it.
I reported that my trigger wasn't as light as advertised. These fine folks contacted me and said they wanted to check the trigger out. I'm pleased to say it is now is one of the nicest triggers I've ever had on a 10/22 and would highly recommend them to all my friends. These are good people who stand behind their work.
Much better trigger than stock but it's nowhere near as light as the 2lb 2oz listed on the return papers. My gauge and a gauge at a local gun shop show it at 3 and a 1/2 lb
I shoot and coach the shooting sport of rimfire challenge. I receintly wrote an article for the Tandemkross Blog about budget minded modifications for competition. I had handled other tier 3 triggers and knew they were really good. I decided to walk the walk and set up and shoot a 10-22 as I described in the article. I sent a trigger group off and 2 weeks to the day I had it back. I asked for the "sweet spot" but was astounded on just how sweet it was. It came back at an incredibly smooth 2.0lb. I now have a little over 2000 rounds through it and it is now even better. My cheap scales show 1lb 10oz. All I can say is wow.
What a super job they did on my trigger. I can’t imagine what the upgrade must be like as I purchased the least expensive work and it’s outstanding. They will definitely get more work once my friends and family experience this trigger. Super fast turnaround and communication as well, no delays even through the Christmas holiday. Keep up the great work!!!
Got a Tier 3. Turned my crunchy, heavy, factory ruger trigger into a light, crisp, 2.0lb trigger. Pretravel doesn't bother me at all. Was back in my mailbox after just 1.5 weeks.
Just the basic trigger job(Tier 3) stacks up well against other companies $110 trigger kits. If I would have know about Brimstone before I would have had all my 10/22 triggers done by them. Took 2 weeks exactly from when I mailed it till it was back in my mailbox. A+ work and communication.
