Brilliant marketing idea

I just got one of the new triggers for the Ruger 10/22.

It is in a plastic clamshell that is cut to you can actually try the trigger.

There is a plastic shroud over the hammer to keep it from hitting the housing.

It is a complete trigger group so the only installation is two pins.

The ad says 2.5-3 lbs and from dry firing that seems right.

Stay tuned.

It is designed to hang on a pegboard hook but the pakage is easily opened so retailers might be wise to keep it behind the counter

I have not exercised my 10/22 in too long. But wet bulb is 108 this week. I will investigate the trigger because I have an old rifle.

Top, it has Ruger all over it and is called the BX-Trigger. The guts look exactly like the others but the housing is molded polymer of some kind.

It certainly MIGHT be made by a vendor, but the price point is well below other aftermarket kits. The only one of those I have is a Volquartsen.

I'm going to install it, but 100+ is too damn hot for the range right now.

That is a great idea, Charlie. And I just got off our range (we're switching to 9mm Glocks and had to qualify). It's 98 here but feels hotter. Just wasn't any fun, you know?

When I bought one, I discovered that when you take that plastic widget off the trigger housing, you have to watch the pin that holds the bolt catch very, very carefully. Otherwise, you're going to be playing find the pin.

I promptly put the widget on the original trigger group I reworked.

I'm not sure when Ruger went from alloy to plastic for the trigger group housing, but they discovered the plastic was tougher than the alloy. The change was some time back.

One brief aside, may I ask which model 9mm Glock?
Geoff
Who knows a couple of blokes, who asked for G18s, rejected, and others who got G17s but said they should have done G19s.

Those triggers were advertised in the Cabelas catalog I received yesterday. But I don't have a 1022 anymore.

Too hot to shoot here still, but the trigger pull is 2 lb. 9 oz. and crisp

What fills that niche in your personal battery, if I may ask.

Geoff
Who almost replaced his with a Browning take-down years back, but I hesitated and lost the chance.

Geoff, Patrol got the 17's, CID/SVU and SID (our narcs) got 19's. Duty ammo is 135 grain Hornady Critical Duty.

We are still allowed to carry other weapons, so my daily carry is still a LW Commander in .45 ACP. Had to be issued and qualify with the new weapon, which will reside in my gun safe probably until I retire in the next 3 years. By state law I get to keep it. (whoopee...not a huge fan of Glocks, but they work, and a free gun is a free gun )

For a semi auto 22 I have one of the STG 44s. If I want real accuracy I shoot my US Mossbergs. Or my Kimber I bought from the CMP.

I discovered that a H&K claw scope mount will go right on the STG 44.

Charlie, I told the lieutenant that was the prime mover and decision maker on this swap that next time they swap guns, it better be in early spring or late fall. Supposed to be a heat index of 105 here today, and it wasn't much better yesterday.

I would probably told him he made a mistake,,,:roll eyes:

Don't know about state law, but the city gave me my 40 which hasn't been fired since.

Best news is that the last four digits of the serial number just happen to match my code number.

Since I was involved in the selection and testing I got one of the first issued guns. The LT had a list of guns on this desk and when I looked at it I may have whined, begged or somesuch when I asked, "Can I have THIS one?"

I'm almost a little embarrassed to admit, I've never owned a 10/22. I have always gone weak in the knees for lever and pump action .22's, and I currently have one lever, and 5 pump .22's. So it's kinda hard to justify another .22, especially at a time when I can't reliably get ammo for them.

I like it a lot, so far it's been very reliable. My only complaint is that it weighs the same as the real thing, so it's pretty heavy for a .22. Here is a pic of a fifty yard target. The string of holes on the right were put there as I was adjusting the scope. After it was dialed in it did pretty good.
