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 did not like the factory trigger and considered buying parts and attempting to fix it. Then I found out about Brimstone and realized this was probably a better way to go. Ordered the Tier 3 Sweet spot and got a 2lb 5oz trigger that is fantastic! Don't waste money on expensive parts when this is not only cheaper but the quality of work is superb. I don't think I could have come close spending twice the money.
My wife got me this for my birthday back in October and I just got to shoot it for the first time. Shooting Eley subsonic HPs or CCI Velocitors, my rifle (a stainless carbine with a 4x fixed scope) used to shoot roughly 1.5” 5 shot groups at 25 yards. This morning, I shot 3 groups (2 with Eley and 1 with CCI) that were ~1/2” at 25 yards. I am definitely the limiting factory on accuracy now. Oh, and the speed with which they did the job was unreal.
I am a trigger fanatic and a trigger stickler. I mainly assemble ARs and I have used just about every trigger you can think of. When putting together my 10/22 I was wanting a quality trigger. I figured for the money I might as well send my stock ruger 10/22 trigger to these guys just to see what it was like. Pull is clean, smooth, and crisp and right at 2lbs 1oz. Reset is nice and quick. I am extremely happy. If I build more 10/22s these guys will get all my triggers!
Just got back from the range after shooting with new trigger group with tier 3 work done. Group size went from over 6 inches with old stock trigger to under 4 inches with new trigger group at 50 yards with stock sights on A rest, and O so smooth.
Bought one for my first 10/22 and it took seconds to install, worlds better than the stock trigger, feels similar to the expensive Geissele and Timneys I've had on my big guns. THANKS!!!
Wish I had done this sooner, makes a big difference plus saved me a lot of money, I thought I was going to have to buy a new barrel after I had a Tier 3 done I found out my barrel is a plenty accuracy enough. now I want to get my Glock done
Mine came back @ 2 lbs. The break is unanticipated. Very smooth. I have around 200 rounds on it, and the trigger is no longer a distraction. The stock version was heavy, gritty, and I felt like I pulled every shot. For my money, it is well worth it. Highly recommended.
I sent my factory trigger that was terrible in for the Tier 3 rework and got back a fantastic smooth trigger. I was wondering how good it could be using the factory parts and was amazed how good it turned out. For the price you can't find a better deal.
The trigger is at 2 1/8 pounds. Thank you for a great job, I will recommend your work to all my friends.
I had the tier 3 work done to my old metal trigger housing. The returned product came back quickly. At the range it was smooth and set just right for my work on the bench. I hope to use it this Spring on ground squirrels where I will be shooting 100's if not a 1000 rounds. For the price I have to say you can't beat it. Way to go Brimstone
