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.
$9.95 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. 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.

Sent in my wife's 10/22 trigger for a tier 3 work.
Received it back in the estimated time.
The improvement is hard to believe. Before they worked on it the trigger was stiff, heavy and felt gritty.
Now it is silky smooth and breaks crisply at 2 pounds 8 oz.
This was well worth the cost and I would highly recommend Brimstone to anyone.
I am not affiliated with them and did not receive anything for my review.
Very nice work, I’m very satisfied. Ended up at 2.8lbs. Shot about a 1.25” group of 20 shots this morning at 50 yards.
Very happy with the trigger work at least six triggers so far .but Customer service was not near as good as the trigger work. They could work on their communication emailed David 3 times only to be ignored 3 times . Phone service also very poor. 5 star work with 2 star customer service that says I don't appreciate your business
The very best trigger rework I have ever received from Brimstone! Smooth as silk, no grit, very clean, with a perfect trigger weight (. 2.4#), can’t get much better!
Love that this is a local (close enough) shop that performs this work. Easy order and ship/drop off process. Received back in hard box with bubble wrap, completely protected. Pretty fast turn around. Immediately installed and tried the trigger. Absolutely unbelievable. Beautifully smooth and light. The bolt drop feature is fantastic and a must have if you understand the fight of the stupid Ruger bolt release fin. These guys do tremendous work and I could not be more pleased. Do yourself a favor and upgrade your 10/22.
I have 2 comments; the actual trigger work is very good and as advertised. It is smooth and crisp. However, I have a issue. I sent a trigger group from a Ruger 10-22 rifle for trigger work, a 1976 model. I was horrified to find the trigger body casting was defaced by Brimstone. The 'smith used a metal stamp to ID (I guess) his work. This permanently disfigured my trigger group forever. It's a vintage .22, now scarred. This stamp is a deal breaker for me, I don't like it. Good trigger work but know what will happen.
Thank you for the fast service, works great!!
Brimstone does great work. This was cheaper and better than the Ruger BX trigger. Took about to week to get back. Well worth price!
I have an older 10/22 with the metal trigger group. The trigger pull was 7 1/2 pounds on my trigger gauge at home. After the Brimstone work the trigger is 2 1/4 pounds according to the note included and confirmed on my guage at home. The overall feel (not just the pull weight) is much improved for a smoother and cleaner break. I now love my 10/22 thanks to Brimstone!
