Tier 1 (Advanced) Ruger 10/22 Trigger Work

51 reviews Write a Review
This sale is for services on your trigger group. Component pieces of your group will be upgraded, but you supply the initial group. 

(We offer more trigger colors than anyone else around, because we Cerakote every one right here in house. If you selected a Gun Candy color, please make that selection from the bottom drop down menu. It saves you time, and us hassle. Thanks!) 


The Tier 1 Trigger Work

This job has everything the previous two levels of work have, so it's not a bad idea to at least skim through them to get an idea of what's going on.

This trigger job picks up where the Tier 2 leaves off. You now have everything fitted, polished, tuned, and brought down to whatever weight of pull you request. You also have one of our billet CNC'd triggers with it's internal torsion trigger return spring and integral overtravel stop. 

What the Tier 1 gets you is an adjustable sear, and extra time spent tuning and polishing everything to ensure that we have coaxed every possible ounce of performance from your group. The adjustable sear allows us to eliminate the pre-travel from your group, so that when you touch the trigger, it's already hit 'the wall.' At this point there is no perceptible movement in the trigger, just a crisp click, or glass rod break. This is known as a single stage trigger, versus the two stage triggers which have movement before you hit the wall. Your trigger will be equal to a high end target trigger on a bolt action rifle, and superior to most aftermarket 10/22 groups in actual trigger feel. Obviously you don't get the stunning machined group, or the bragging rights that go with a full group, but your actual trigger feel and function will be on par with most anything out there.

If you are going to be competing, or are just very serious about your shooting, then this is the trigger for you. Or, if you are actively considering spending the money for an aftermarket group, but are still slightly on a budget, this might also be the job for you.

Pull Weight
2lbs is the lightest we can safely go with a 10/22 trigger. Doesn't matter what level of trigger work you get. The higher levels of work will give you a better quality of trigger pull and more refined movement, but all three Tiers cannot go below 2lbs. 
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. 
2.5lbs is a great all-round option. It's heavy enough for beginning shooters or hunters, but it's still light enough for accurate shooting. 
3.0+lbs. This option is for folks who shoot in certain competitions that require at least a 3lb trigger. A 3lb weight will be hooked to the trigger, and the trigger will need to be able to pick up that weight. We do NOT recommend this pull weight for most people!! I understand that it doesn't sound like much of a difference, but when you have this trigger next to a 2.5lb trigger, it will feel significantly heavier and less precise. 

Trigger colors
Click on the image at the top of the page with all of the triggers, to see the available color choices. We are a Cerakote Certified applicator, and every trigger is coated here in house. These are the colors we commonly stock, but in the future there will be options for truly custom colors. We have edited the above image to appear as true as possible in color to the finished product, but understand that there could be slight variations on color from one batch to the next, or when displayed on different monitors. If you are getting other parts Cerakoted, it is always best to do everything at the same time, so that the colors all match exactly. 

There is a little metal tab on the bottom of the trigger housing, towards the front of the trigger guard. If you hold the bolt to the rear, push up on this tab, and let the bolt forward, it will lock the bolt open. This is used as a safety on ranges that require the action to be open when the range is 'cold', or for when you are cleaning the barrel. To close the bolt however, you need three hands. One to hold the rifle, one to pull back on the bolt, and the third to press up on that tab and somehow rotate it to the rear. It's a pain, and not exactly safe if you have a loaded magazine inserted. Our modification makes it so you still lock the action open exactly the same as before, but to close the bolt you just pull back slightly on the charging handle and let it go, just like you do with any other semi-auto firearm. The hold back will will drop out of the way on it's own when you pull back on the charging handle, without you touching the bolt release. This is NOT a last round hold open! No 10/22 built has a last round hold open from the factory. There is one company making them, Google it if you have more questions. We don't carry or install the part.

Shipping Information
Complete shipping instructions and information can be found here.
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.

    Excellent Trigger

    Posted by mn_blayne on Sep 7th 2021

    I sent in my trigger to have the Tier 1 trigger work done and the installation of a matching trigger and long magazine release. Before I placed my order I had a couple of clarifying questions that were answered in a day (understandable as I am sure Brimstone is busy). I wanted zero take-up and as light a trigger as possible. The trigger ended up at an even 2 pounds. The gun is so much more fun to shoot. The factory trigger had a ton of creep and was easily in the 6 pound range. It was completely worth the investment and I highly recommend this service.

    I'll keep this simple. This trigger met all my expectations and then some. Highly suggest the Tier 1! Great fit and finish and the color options are a nice addition! The bolt release feature is also very well appreciated. Quick turn around time on work too. Get you 1!

    What a difference! Fast turn around and excellent quality work. This trigger feels better than several aftermarkets that cost twice as much. Definitely recommend sending your tired old stock trigger to these guys and let them work their magic.

    Tier 1 Ruger 10/22

    Posted by Mike Amaral on Apr 2nd 2021

    The trigger is great and the customer service is outstanding. I had a previous Tier 1 on another trigger that I stupidly disassembled and could not put back together. Brimstone did a Tier 1 on the new trigger and assemble my mistake.

    2lbs 0oz

    Posted by Brian P. on Jan 23rd 2021

    Trigger was back in my hands in about two weeks. It breaks consistently at 2lbs 0oz with just a slightest hint of creep. This is the best worked 10/22 trigger I ever felt.

    10/22 Tier 1 trigger work

    Posted by Matt Dantzler on Dec 14th 2020

    Put this in my Kidd build and it has performed great! Instead of sanding down the trigger sides to get it into the Kidd receiver, I just used some CLP and some light tapping with a rubber mallet. The trigger breaks clean and is an important part of this tac driving setup.
