Ruger BX Trigger Work

40 reviews Write a Review

This sale is for services on your trigger group. Component pieces of your group can be upgraded, but you supply the initial group.

(PLEASE NOTE! At this point it is our understanding that this modification will not work with the Tactical Solutions rifles. It is our understanding that the X-Ring ships with a BX trigger group, but it requires that all of the factory overtravel be left in the trigger to function reliably. Our standard work dials out the overtravel, and that may cause a failure to reset when installed in an X-Ring rifle. There have been zero reports with this issue when 1) This work is installed in any other rifle or  2) When any of our other trigger work is installed in an X-Ring. That is because of the different disconnector design on the BX trigger groups. If you want to make this work you may be able to adjust the overtravel screw to a point where it functions in your X-Ring, but that is not something we can guaranty.) 

Presenting the only billet aluminum trigger and full trigger work available for the BX trigger that we are aware of at this point! 

If you're familiar with our trigger work, this is basically our Tier 2 trigger work performed on the BX trigger group. It's a huge improvement over the standard Tier 2 triggers however because the internal geometry on these groups is completely different than on the factory triggers. That's why we have to machine a separate type of trigger, and why you aren't seeing a ton of other options on the market just yet. 

When we initially launched this service, we were getting trigger pull weights down to 1lb. However long term testing proved that they were not as reliable as the 1.5lb pull weight. It wasn't a ton that failed, but more than we would like to see, so as a result, the 1.5lb pull weight is the only option for these triggers. It's actually fairly difficult to get them up to 2lbs, so that's also not an option unless you absolutely need to have it for some reason. But we can do that with the standard 10/22 group, so you're basically wasting a BX trigger. 

This trigger work will finish out with just a little bit of pre travel, a solid wall, very crisp break, with minimal overtravel and a short reset. After doing dozens of standard 10/22 groups over the course of a day, when I get to do a BX trigger I'm always blown away by how much better the BX feels. 

(Again, because of the unique internal geometry that these triggers have, we cannot perform a Tier 1 type of trigger work, and remove the pre travel. This basic BX trigger job will result in surprisingly little pre travel, but it will still be there) 

As with our other trigger work, to order you just add the item to your cart, and check out as you would with anything else online. You'll get an emailed confirmation which will have all of the shipping and packaging information. If possible, print out that email and include it with your trigger group when you send it in. You'll get an email when it arrives, and another when we ship it back.

Thanks for looking! If you have any other questions, just let us know via the 'Contact Us' button floating around the right side of your screen.

    BX trigger

    Posted by J Willeford on Jun 18th 2020

    I received my reworked BX exactly 3 from acknowledgement email. Note said 1# 12 oz, after installing in my LVT I got 1# 11.4ov (10 pull avg). After 175rds I am getting 1# 9.6oz (10 pull avg). Approx 1mm take-up, very smooth pull to clean break. I personally prefer the feel of this trigger in my ABRA factory rifle to the that of another popular grey springed drop-in.

    Trigger Job on Thompson Center

    Posted by Bill SCHUTT on Jun 5th 2020

    My only gripe with The T/C performance center rifle was the lousy trigger, I decided to give Brimstone a try and sent the trigger housing off for the ($85 ) trigger job. When I received the trigger I found that the safety had rotated and wouldn't release so I called Brimstone and received some good coaching on how to get the safety working again, When fixing the safety I noticed that they had replaced the trigger spring and plunger with a wire spring which I think is a huge improvement, On installing the trigger I was pleased to find I had a very nice crisp 2 lb pull with very little take up to say the least I'm very pleased with the work Brimstone did.

    The trigger grp came out of a Charger, and not a BX assembled in gun, but not tried yet due to Shelter in Place ruling...will update.

    BX trigger job

    Posted by Tom Williams on Jan 22nd 2020

    Wow. I've been shooting Ruger 10/22's for over 50 years. The BX triggers were a welcomed improvement, but still lacked. Now, thanks to Brimstone, it's perfect. My BX triggers now break "cleanly" between 1-2 lbs, with a short, smooth take-up, and a very crisp break. The overtravel seems to be nonexistent. My oldest rifle is an original (unaltered) walnut carbine model, that's fired thousands of rounds. Now I'm busting walnuts with it at 50 yds. A more recent sportier is keeping three shot strings inside a dime at 50yds, under a Vortex scope. Brimstone's description of their work is spot on!

    BX trigger work

    Posted by Stephen Abbott on Jan 7th 2020

    I appreciate how Brimstone was able to reduce the trigger pull on my TCR trigger group. The only thing I would say could be improved would be to eliminate the creep in the trigger. I don't know if that's possible and I'm certainly pleased with the let off being what I like and am accustom to with my other guns. Thank for a good job.

    TCR22 trigger very much improved

    Posted by KT on Dec 15th 2019

    Weight and pull length now comparable to an aftermarket Volquartsen type trigger at approximately 40% of the price. OD Green trigger matches the stock, which is a nice little plus.

    Greatly improved trigger

    Posted by Silver_Rings on Dec 10th 2019

    I had the trigger work done on my T/C R22 and am happy with it. The trigger is much crisper and clean feeling. On my trigger pull gage the pull is about 2.5 lbs, not as light as I thought it would be, but the feel of the trigger is so much better it feels lighter and I am happy. Well worth the money and the turn around time was quick.

    Almost perfect!

    Posted by Jason Anderson on Nov 3rd 2019

    My only suggestion would be this: while you’ve got the BX all apart, replace the plunger spring with a stiffer one. They’re $2, and eliminate magazine wobble, which all but eliminates FTF and FTE troubles.

    Turned a mediocre TCR22 trigger into crisp under 2# great trigger. I then sent my BX trigger and it turned out great also. Highly recommend.
