- tunes your 10-22 Ruger style trigger pull
Use the trigger weight tuning
springs to set/tune the pull weight in the Ruger 10-22 trigger design for an aftermarket upgrade. This spring affects both the pull weight and
reset of the trigger. A stronger spring
may be necessary if your trigger is not resetting consistently. With the KIDD Trigger job kit installed in
the Ruger polymer trig
ger guard the unmarked spring will
set the trigger pull weight to approximately 1 3/4 lb., white 2 1/4 lb., red 2 3/4 lb., green 3 1/4 lb., blue 3 3/4 lb. Please
keep in mind that these results are approximates due to the fact that we do not
manufacture the Ruger components. Best
results will be achieved with the KIDD Trigger job kit
installed in a Ruger
This spring is located in the
trigger guard behind the trigger blade with a plunger capping it off. In order to gain access to this area the
hammer must be removed along with the sub-assembly of the

surface. Hold back trigger blade as you slide out trigger pin with the other
hand. (Holding the trigger blade back keeps plunger spring from flying out.)

and magazine latch plunger intact.
While holding plunger in place, drop trigger
unit in guard with trigger blade on the bottom. Align the trigger pivot hole
with the slay pin. (Slay pin is the small pin within the drop in trigger
unit.) Using the smaller dowel pin provided, slide into trigger pivot hole
removing slay pin. (Slay pin should also easily slide out.)
To install hammer with flat side of hammer

spring on top and slide into guard with the groove facing down. Slide in larger
dowel pin provided to secure hammer in place.
Slightly slide out magazine latch pin to replace
bolt hold open. Slide spring over so that the crooked end lands on top of bolt
hold open. Push down straight end of spring to slide in dowel pin while also
putting ejector back into place.

up). Cock hammer into place. Put safety on. Trigger is now ready to be
installed in your receiver.
