Q: does this kit come with your threaded receiver pins?
A: Hi George, Yes, this kit comes with our threaded receiver pins, along with the v-block, buffer, scope base, and take down screw. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Under STOCK: What does "List stock if YES, on rear tang:" mean? Can this item be ordered with a stock cut for the rear tang? Thank you for your time.
A: Hi Barry, Thank you for your interest in our barreled action. We have 4 varying angles that the rear tang drops as it comes off the back of our receiver. So when ordering a rear tang we ask the customer for the stock, so that we can best match the angle of the stock with the angle of the rear tang. It is not always a perfect match but with most stocks it is so close that it looks like the rear tang was made for the stock. However, we don't sell stocks with any of our products except for our rifles. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: If the sole consideration is accuracy at 100 m and beyond. What configuration in your experience will provide the optimal solution? How significant is barrel length , diameter, material, weight? What about the trigger. Single vs 2 stage? I understand that some things are personal preference or comfort but ballistics is what I concern with at this point. I appreciate your opinion and guidance. Thanks, Paul
A: Hi Paul, For ultimate accuracy, I recommend a heavy barrel over a light weight barrel because a heavy barrel is easier to shoot more accurately due to the overall weight of the rifle, harmonics, and it slows the motion down. I would also recommend our two stage trigger, because it can break at a lighter weight and for me that translates into more accuracy. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Do the receiver and barrel come pre-assembled and fitted or do they ship as separate parts? What about trigger and other items added to an order?
A: This product will ship to your FFL as an assembly whether you order a barreled receiver or a barreled action. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Okay, so the barreled action comes with barrel, receiver, v-block, takedown screw, receiver pins, and bolt buffer.
What else do I need to purchase, besides the stock, in order to make it into a COMPLETE Kidd rifle? KIDD Charging assembly? KIDD Auto-bolt release? KIDD Extractor? KIDD anything else?
By the way, I will be sending the whole package to an expert gunsmith to put it all together for me, because I know next to nothing about gun mechanics. All I do is shoot and have fun, and admire beautiful guns. You know, just like how many of us can drive cars, and love good-looking and fast cars, but know next to nothing about how their innards are put together and how they really work.
A: Thank you for your interest in our barreled action. Regarding your question, for additional parts, if the bolt, trigger, and cocking assembly are added to the action then the remaining parts needed are; a stock, magazine, scope rings, and scope. This action will ship to an FFL. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Does KIDD receiver have the rear hole for breach-to-muzzle cleaning? And if a rear tang attachment was added, does that it (the rear tang) will need to be unscrewed in order to do cleaning through the rear hole?
A: Yes, our receivers come with the rear cleaning hole. If the rear tang is attached the cleaning hole is covered. So the rear tang would need to be removed in order to use the rear cleaning hole. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Does this come with the three recoil springs that would normally be included with the "Guide Rod and Spring Kit"?
A: Yes, one would be installed and the other two are shipped with it. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: How hard is it to drop in your custom BARRELED ACTION into a stock? Mine will either be a Hogue Youth, or a laminated stock from Revolution (both channeled for .920 barrels). I'm asking because I've no mechanical talent and only basic tools at home (crescent wrench, hammer, etc.). Should I take the job to a gun smith or some friend who is mechanically astute and familiar with gun assembly? Do you have downloadable instructions?
A: I do have some mechanical ability, though compared to Tony, my abilities are extremely limited. I have assembled many barreled actions into stocks and have always been successful. The only tool needed is a screwdriver. After making it safe and before installing the barreled action center up the safety because if it is not centered it will catch on one side of the stock. Lead with the back end of the barreled action then guide the front end into the stock. (Note: don't hold the safety while installing the barreled action, for some reason customers and myself hold here and can spin the safety very easily when it is centered). Tighten the take down screws once the barreled action is seated and done. If this seems over your abilities then a gunsmith is always a good option. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: If I get the barreled action, will it need to be pillar bedded and free-floated when it gets fitted into a stock?
A: We do recommend that the barrel is free floated for accuracy purposes but pillar bedding is not a need but should be considered as an additional option. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: The barrel that I'm interested in is not an option in the drop down menu. I would like a stainless 18" black bull barrel build option, Is that possible? Thank you.
A: Hi George, If an option is not in the drop down menu it means that we are currently out. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Do you advise using for your KIDD barreled action synthetic/composite stock instead of wood or laminates? And the stock has to be channeled for .0920, yes?
A: We personally own both, and recommend both. But yes, the stock needs to be a bull barrel channel. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Will this work on a 10/22 takedown rifle or charger?
A: Thank you for your interest, but no, this was not designed to work as a takedown® or pistol. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Do you make a plain jane receiver w/o top rail? I want to build a sbr version of the HTA's 90-22 bull pup design. Didn't see anything like that on your website. Thanks.
A: Hi Michael, Thank you for your interest in our receiver. Though we don't make one without a top rail allowing it to fit in a bullpup. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Do you make a barreled receiver for a charger? I would like to purchase a complete set up for a charger stock.
A: No, we don't offer that option at this time. Thank you for your interest. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: You don't show the untra-light weight fluted barrels as options. Are they out of stock or not offered in a barreled receiver configuration?
A: Thank you for your interest. I see them as an option near the bottom of the barrel drop down menu. It's a long list, easy to miss. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: What metal is the receiver made of?
A: The receiver is made from billet aluminium.
Q: On a complete barreled action with trigger, what is the average shipping cost? Thank you.
A: Shipping a barreled action is around $16 depending on where you are located it could be more or less.
Q: Can you use a different brand barrel and trigger assembly in your receiver? Or does it have to be yours
A: A different barrel and trigger should work but for optimal performance keeping the same manufacture is recommended.
