Q: I have the standard spring and get stove pipes with target/standard velocity. are the springs rated for the ammo?
A: Hi Ralph, Thank you for your purchase. The standard spring should be good with your ammo. Perhaps there is something else causing the stove pipes. Why don't you give us a call at 830-557-5433 to discuss other options such as a temperamental magazine, dirty chamber, or checking the extractor.
Q: what spring so a 10/22 will cycle?
A: Generally, the action will cycle with any of the three springs. The ability to tune the timing helps those customers on the outer edge of proper cycling due to the possible tolerance stacking issues in their action combined with the particular ammunition they are using. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Will the tunning spring affect or helpaccuracy?
A: It is meant to assist with proper cycling and in that way can help accuracy, but it doesn't specifically help accuracy like a quality barrel would. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: When reusing the factory cocking handle with a Kidd guide rod and Kidd replacement spring, should I reuse the small steel bead between the spring and handle- like on the factory assembly?
A: I would recommend using our guide rod for the interchangeable system (of course right) but if you use the factory rod the bead will not need to be replaced if using our handle. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Can the KIDD Guide Rod and Spring Kit be used with the Factory bolt?
A: Yes, this will work with your factory bolt.
Q: Do you make a spring and rod kit for the 10/22 Magnum?
A: Hi Prairie Dog Sniper,
At this time we do not make a guide rod and spring kit for that model .22LR. Good Shooting-Shalee
Q: Do these come with a clip to hold the spring on the rod?
A: You will not need a clip to hold the spring onto the rod. It is kept in place when you drop it into the receiver with the bolt. Watch our video and this will help you with the install.
Q: What are the weights of the three springs and how do I identify them?
A: white spring=standard, red spring =10% increase, no color=10% decrease
Q: I got a bunch of your upgrades for my 10/22, great stuff. I have the spring set, I’m wondering about the ability to “tune” to the ammo through the springs, what are the data on tuning through the bolt springs? Is it simply that the lighter spring with faster ammo will slam around too much compared to a heavier spring? I know it might not cycle subsonic or maybe even standard with the heavier spring. I’m wondering about the overarching philosophy of use of spring tuning, this has been hard to research. I’m just trying to get my project ultimate nys 10/22 as good as I can get it, (pending a large order of standard velocity ammo.) Also if you have a recommendation/guidelines regarding the springs and different feet per second ammo. Thanks for your time.
A: The springs should be marked with a small amount of paint on them. The white springs comes in the tube with the guide rod already installed on it. There is one spring with no paint which is the one you can use with subsonic ammo and a red spring is recommended for high velocity ammo.
