Q: On other places on your web site you say that a free floating barrel is recommended and more accurate. However, I understand that the Magpul Hunter x22 sock has a "lip" on the end of the barrel channel which the barrel rests on, making it non-free floating. Is this so, and does it impact accuracy.? Thanks.
A: We modify the Hunter X-22 stock to ensure the barrel is fully free floated. Good Shooting-Shalee
Q: Hello. Which set-up would allow me to compete in 100-yard competitions and steel challenge? I am ok with swapping barrels for steel challenge to reduce weight. What would be the base configuration that I could build on to participate in both disciplines? I would likely need to change The stock? Unsure of the trigger... I currently have a Magpul X-22 and it is too heavy for steel challenge but works for long distance shooting. Please let me know. Thank you.
A: I understand your dilemma, generally these two rifles would be on opposite sides of the spectrum. The 100 yard competition would have a 20" barrel, heavy stock, two stage trigger and the steel challenge rifle would have an ultra light weight barrel, light stock, and single stage trigger. So for a happy medium, I would recommend the 18" light weight, the Magpul stock since it will already be on the rifle, and the single stage trigger. Good shooting! KIDD
Q: On the supergrade receiver what need is there for the rear access hole since rifle needs to be disassembled to remove the bolt to allow a cleaning rod to pass into the chamber side of the barrel. Just wondering?
A: Great question. The rear cleaning hole gives you direct access to the chamber without having to go through the muzzle end of the barrel. This is needed when cleaning with a cleaning rod. When you clean your barrel from the chamber of the barrel to the muzzle, you are less likely to damage the crown of the barrel. Good Shooting-KIDD
Q: AN THIS RIFLE BE ORDERED WITH EMBEDDED ACTION?
A: This rifle does come with the action bedded into the stock. Good Shooting-KIDD
Q: The video demonstrating this rifle has a Magpul flat dark earth stock, yet there is not an option for a FDE stock, only black. Is a flat dark earth stock available?
A: Thank you for your question. We are working on getting more stock color options. But for now you can have any color you want as long as it's black. Good shooting! KIDD

Q: Does you 16.5 inch ultra light barrel still expect to stay with in 1/2" group some of your literature says not and some say all of your barrels will stay that tight at 50 yards on your super grade rifle?
A: With the KIDD Supergrade all KIDD Barrels including the Ultra Lightweight Barrels are guaranteed to shoot within 1/2" groups at 50 yards. Good Shooting-Shalee

Q: Would you be willing to install a black McMillan 10/22 Sporter stock instead of the standard Magpul? I understand this would negatively affect the ease of performing barrel swaps. Thank you
A: We only sell the complete rifle on the Magpul stock. However, we do sell the barreled action which includes everything minus the stock and will drop into the McMillan stock without any issues. Good Shooting-KIDD

Q: I'm interested in this rifle and have a couple of questions.
1. Can the action be removed from the stock to access the trigger for cleaning?
2. Can the barrel be cleaned from the breech end with the rear tang?
A: The complete action can be removed from the stock by removing the rear tang screw as well as the takedown screw so that you can clean the internal parts as well as the trigger unit. You can clean the barrel from the breech by either removing the barrel from the receiver or using the rear cleaning hole at the back of the receiver. To access this hole you will need to remove the rear tang.
Q: I'm considering a Supergrade for bench rest target shooting. Does the threaded barrel with muzzle brake help or hurt accuracy? Was thinking of the 20" polished barrel with brake. Thanks.
A: Threading the barrel with a muzzle brake is a cosmetic upgrade. It will not help with the accuracy of the barrel. The 20 inch barrel is our most accurate barrel.
Q: Please explain some of the specifics between the stainless steel barrels and the "black steel" barrels. What steel is used in the black barrels (different than the SS barrels?) and what finishing process is used?
A: Our black Steel barrels are Lothar Walther chrome moly and we blue them in order to change the color to black.
Q: Regarding the Supergrade barrel interchange. IF zero at 100 yds, will the swap maintain zero?
A: We recommend when changing a major component of the rifle to always re-zero the rifle. It should be close to zero but it is always best to double check in order to get the best accuracy possible
Q: I have a super grade Kidd 10/22 from you can I purchase a magpul stock where I can swap out the barrel without breaking down ? Ty
A: This is a bit more complicated then just selling a stock to you. Depending on several factors action would need to be sent to us. Give our sales team a call 8305575433 and they will be able to give you the options that are available.
Q: I was looking to do a full out Steel Challenge build, Threaded barrel end with cap and extra muzzle device for possible use later. extended mag release is not necessary for me, I do not completely understand the optional MOA optic base pads,Not sure if i would continue with the C-More or switch to a lower profile Vortex sight. and I would definitely be looking for the lightest reliable single stage trigger possible. Can you recommend a build parts list, pricing and lead time?
A: Yes, we can build our a rifle for you. Give our sales team a call 8305575433. They will be able to give you lead times which will vary depending on the options you choose.
Q: Are different barrel lengths Available ? Is a 18" Limited specialty Diamond fluted SS .920 Bead blasted threaded and capped available in a 20"?
A: Our Limited Edition barrels (Diamond, Sprial, 762 and 556) are only offered in 18 inches.
Q: what is the weight of the super grade in 20 or 18 ?
A: The approximate weight will be 7.5lbs with the 20 inch barrel and 7lbs with the 18 Inch barrel. This will vary depending on options you choose.
Q: Does a muzzle brake come with a super premium rifle custom build if you ordered a threaded end cap on the barrel?
A: You will need to make sure you select the threaded and cap option when selecting a barrel so that the barrel is threaded to accept the muzzle brake which will need to be purchased separately.
Q: Hello I would like to know if I order a super grade rifle if it will come bedded and fully assembled? Thankyou
A: Yes, the Supergrade Premium Rifle will come fully assembled, bedded and test fired. Please let us know if you have other questions.
Q: Do you offer the Supergrade with the Grey stock?
A: Yes, we have Black, Gray, Green and Tan stock options for this build.
Q: If I order a supergrade with the magpul stock, would it be possible to order a chassis to fit it at a later date and still have the proper milling for the rear tang and barrel installation holes that is needed for the supergrade barrel swaps? Also, would it be possible to order the chassis first and order the magpul stock later with these modifications (assuming I provide proof of purchase for the original rifle)? Thank you in advance for your time.
A: You would need to purchase the Supergrade Premium Rifle so that the action can be bedded to the Magpul stock. The Chassis can then be purchased separately and will fit your Supergrade action without any modifications.
Q: Is the Lead time on this rifle still around 2 weeks? Wasn’t sure if COVID was affecting your operation.
A: We are running at about 2 weeks at the moment. Our website lead times are accurate.
Q: Hello,Was wondering what is a ship time for your supergrade premium. Would you have an inventory with the more popular options? I am very impressed with the ease of the barrel interchangement. Thank you, I am looking forward to your reply.
A: Our lead times are accurate on our website. We do not inventory builds they are made to order. Right now, build times are about 2 weeks.
Q: A few years ago, I purchased a Supergrade from you that came in a McMillan stock. Is it possible to order another in the McMillan stock?
Please advise, thanks,
A: McMillan is a great stock manufacture and they do offer many stocks for the .22LR. However, we do not keep an inventory of their stocks so you would need to order from them.
Q: Any way to see what our selected build will look like?
A: Great questions. Although, you can not see it online reach out to our sales team and they can get some photos together for you.
Q: Does threading barrel affect accuracy?
A: All builds are guaranteed to shoot .5in at 50 yards or better. This includes our threaded barrels. However, in a bench rest situation/competition we wouldn't advise threading or fluting the barrel because it can affect your accuracy.
Q: New to rifle bedding here. If you remove the reciever to use the rear acces hole in order to clean the reciever, will the bedding process get ruined?
A: The bedding process will not be ruined. You will need to remove the action from the stock in order to clean the internals of the rifle.
