Q: Hi, what's the difference between your single and two stage triggers?...thanks
A: Thank you for your interest in our products. Both our single stage and two stage are complete drop-in units and require no assembling or disassembling of the trigger for tuning. They are both adjustable for pull weight that is initially set by KIDD but can be adjusted later. A single stage trigger is supposed to break without travel when pressure is applied to it. The KIDD single stage has a fantastic break, it is clean, crisp, and repeatable. Our single stage pull weight is adjustable from 1.5 lbs to 5 lbs with the turn of a set screw.
Our two stage is adjustable from 6 oz to 2.5 lbs also with the turn of a set screw along with a few other adjustments that are not normally tuned. In a two stage trigger there is travel or take up giving the customer the ability to have such a light trigger in an autoloader. In the KIDD two stage there is a very smooth 1/4 inch take up that the shooter can take up and then release if conditions are not right to take the shot. After taking up the 1st stage the shooter will feel a slight increase of pressure this is the 2nd stage, or breaking stage. Essentially, at the end of the 1st stage your trigger is now a single stage so only pressure and not travel is required to break the shot.
So to give a comparative example of the difference, if both trigger pull weights were set at 2 lbs, the full 2 lbs would break on the single stage after the 2 pounds of pressure was applied to the blade. In a two stage this weight is distributed over the 1st and 2nd stages. One pound would be broken at the shot after 1lb was taken up on the 1st stage. This creates an advantage for the shooter as the shot is broken with half the weight on the break resulting in less disruption of the sights. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Does this unit include the Kidd Auto Bolt Release?
A: Yes, our KIDD Single Stage comes complete with our auto bolt release installed. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: The description says it is adjustable but why does it give an option to select the weight? Once I select the weight, can I actually adjust to a different weight?
A: You must choose a weight for the trigger to be set at before it leaves our facility. Once you receive the trigger you are able to adjust the pull weight with a turn of a screw. Good Shooting-KIDD
Q: Can you take the single stage trigger down to less than 2 ounces? Looking for something like a Jewell pull.
A: Thank you for your interest in our single stage, but for a trigger with a pull weight in the ounces, you should look at our two stage trigger. The pull weight can go down to as low as 3 ounces on the first stage and 3 ounces on the second (or breaking stage). It is also adjustable up to 2.5 lbs. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Do your trigger units come with your magazine latch plunger installed?
A: Yes, our trigger unit does come with our stainless steel magazine latch plunger installed. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: What is the trigger made of?
A: We manufacture our triggers from billet T6 aluminum and anodize to finish. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Is the low flat mag release flush with the trigger group like the early 10/22's?
A: Hi Daniel, Thank you for your interest. Our sportsman release lever is similar, but has just a slight wedge shape to it. So it is flat enough to allow the carrier ease of mind that the magazine will not accidentally be dropped but yet has a slight wedge so your finger doesn't have to poke into the trigger guard to release the magazine. This is even more important in the winter months when gloves are often a consideration. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Is it possible to get single stage drop in for 1022 @ 3.25 lb pull or as close to 3 lb as possible staying above 3? Trying to get as close to 3 as possible but maintain above 3 to meet 4h rules for cmp sporter. Please advise. Thanks.
A: Our Single Stage Trigger is adjustable from 1.5lbs to 5lbs. We can set it slightly over 3 lbs for you to make your minimum weight requirement. Good Shooting-KIDD
Q: How easily can I adjust the pull weight, or can I?
Can I remove the speed lever if I decide I don't need it?
A: The pull weight is adjustable by a turn of a screw using a 1/16th allen wrench. The speed lever is removable and can be interchanged with our other two styles. Good Shooting-KIDD
Q: Every thing I read say your ruger 10/22 trigger is the best on the market.I know you get what you pay for however during check out it ask if there is a promotion code to apply.I'm a new customer and had to ask are any available? Also I hunt and target shoot and ordering 2 pound trigger pull.What would you recommend? Thanks
A: Hi Ron, Thank you for your interest in our trigger. For hunting/target, I would recommend just a little heavier pull at 2.5lbs. I don't know of any promotions currently going on, as we are trying to keep up with demand. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: What would be a good weight for the unit if the rifle is gunna be mostly used with iron sights for hunting and the to a lesser purpose target shooting?
A: Hi Tristan, For hunting the 2 1/2 to 3 is our most popular weight setting, but our trigger is adjustable so it can be tuned to fit your preference depending on the type of shooting that you will be doing. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: I am interested in your single stage trigger drop-in unit. I would like the sportsman/flat magazine release and the speed lever/long magazine release. If I choose the option for the sportsman release and check the box for the speed release upgrade will I get both? Or will the speed option override the earlier choice? Thank you for your time.
A: Hi Morph, Thank you for your interest. If you want both the sportsman and the speed lever. Select the sportsman, then select the speed lever ($15.00 up charge) and you will receive both levers. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: I have a 10/22 stainless take down. I do not like the plastic trigger housing. Do you have a product that replaces the plastic housing? I just purchased a new bolt, auto release and charging handle with springs. They are great. Thank you.
A: Thank you for your purchases and continued interest in our products. Our single stage or two stage aftermarket trigger units do replace the polymer factory trigger housing with a metal housing and new internals. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: I have a tactical solutions x-ring rifle with bx trigger. Will your drop in trigger work with my rifle?
A: Our trigger is designed to drop into this rifle. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Does either your single stage or two stage trigger change the lock-time of the rifle? If yes, what would the lock-time be?
A: Hi Atan, Thank you for your interest. Our two stage trigger has a shorter lock time then the single stage geometry due to less hammer mass and a more powerful spring. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: I noticed that your "Trigger Job" kit looks like it has a travel stop adjustment on the trigger blade, but I don't see the travel stop adjustment on the drop in unit? Is this adjustment inside the housing, or can this not be adjusted on the drop in unit?
A: The travel stop is adjustable on our KIDD Single Stage, but we use our plunger in the rear of the trigger to adjust this rather than a screw in the trigger blade. The plunger behind the trigger blade has a spring center and a solid outer rim case. When the blade is pulled back collapsing the spring the blade will be stopped by the solid outer rim case, thus acting as a travel stop. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: I've owned several standard 10/22's over the yr's and never had any problems. Just bought a new 10/22 an first time shooting it the mag would fall out. Different (factory) mag tried but would just drop out. Ever heard of this happening. It's a brand new gun. Would your single stage drop in trigger cure my dropped mag's?
A: Thank you for your interest in our trigger. This isn't a normal problem but to further get to the crux of the problem, I would check the spring loaded magazine plunger, the magazine, and the receiver pin hole placements in both the receiver and trigger unit to see if the trigger unit is forced too far forward. If the problem is in the trigger or plunger isn't holding properly then I would expect that a new trigger unit will fix it. If you need more assistance please give us a call at 830-557-5433. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Can this trigger be used in the magnum version or just the two stage?
A: Our single stage is not specifically made for the magnum. We have received feedback from customers regarding their use but I have found that our two stage works every time. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: does the trigger come with an extended mag release?
A: This trigger comes with the customer's choice of the extended or sportsmen magazine lever. The speed release lever can be purchased for an extra cost. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: Hi, do you guys ship internationally? I've heard these triggers are the best but to get them down in NZ is $$$ if you can get them at all! Thanks.
A: Thank you for your interest in our trigger. Though, we don't ship any products out of the United States. We have a dealer in New Zealand, that will be able to assist you with your purchase. Good shooting! KIDD
