This sale is for services on your trigger group, but you supply the initial group.
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.
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. 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 sent in a metal trigger group from a 1968 manufacture 10/22 carbine, for basic trigger work. The original group always had a long, gritty, take-up before a heavy trigger pull. When the group came back, it was like a totally different group. The grit and long take-up is gone. The trigger now breaks like glass breaking. The pull weight is just right. Thank you Brimstone! You will see more of my trigger groups in the future.
Great job and very fast turn around. So impressed by how smooth my 1022 trigger is...WOW! 2.1lb on the sweet spot. Absolutely cannot beat the value or quality of work
Great job. I got a trigger back that was much improved. In my opinion better than the BX for cheaper. Total process took about 3 weeks, most of it was with USPS. I got a personal from the gunsmith describing the trigger. I requested "sweet spot" it actuall breaks at 2.0 Lb. I highly recommend their work.
These guys did the job with in two weeks. Everything as expected and promised. Now my trigger brakes crisp @ 2.5 pounds. Money well spend.
This trigger work is so worth the money. Night and day difference. Crisp 2 lb trigger pull. Thanks Brimstone!!
Well done. Returned cleaned as new plus written instructions to avoid lubing the unit plus 2lb 6oz.
Great communication, with regular updates, even during a time when Brimstone is swamped with work. Trigger assembly came back to me via Priority Mail, in perfect shape, with a measured 2# trigger pull just like I wanted. So good was the work that I immediately sent a standard Ruger 10/22 trigger set for a Tier One job. Got that back within 2 weeks of sending too. Great work that has tightened up my groups considerably. Glad I found Brimstone. They will certainly have all my 10/22 work in the future. Brimstone is simply the best!
After 60-days of waiting I still don't have my trigger back. Buy a KIDD trigger kit for the same money and have your trigger running in less than a week. Terrible service. Never again.
Absolutely love it quick turnaround time very fair pricing I will be continuing trigger work with your company and pushing it to my customers as well very happy with the product feels great
I did have to wait a while for my trigger to return but it was totally worth it! My 10/22 trigger feels so much better and has a nice easy break with a lot less pull weight than it originally did from the factory. I feel like I can actually shoot straight now. I am a little bummed I didn't go with the Tier 2 work because there is no over travel stop and that would have been nice to have. Overall, great work and affordable.
Awesome job!! Trigger work done on 2 standard triggers and one BX trigger. Unbelievable difference this company made in my 10/22 rifles. Don't get your triggers done anywhere else!!
This is the second trigger group that you have worked your magic on for me. It is everything that I expected, and more! Thanks!
