KIDD - 10/22 Match Trigger
KIDD - 10/22 Match Trigger
The KID trigger is the best 10/22 trigger on the market. Whether you shoot Smallbore Silhouette, the Sportsmans Team Challenge or just hate Crows and Groundhogs this is the trigger you have been looking for. What makes it the best you ask? Tony Kidd's patented two stage design. The KID trigger offers the incredibly clean and consistent let off expected in a target trigger while maintaining the total reliability and safety required of a field trigger. The pull weight can be infinitely distributed between the two stages offering a pull as light as 6 ounces (3 ounces on the first stage and 6 ounces on the second stage) or as heavy as 2.5 pounds. We will gladly distribute the trigger weight to your individual needs.
The KID trigger guard is CNC machined from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and each assembly is serial numbered and branded with the KID logo. The hammer, sear, transfer bar and other internal tool steel parts are CNC machined and cut by a wire EDM. All springs are manufactured by a 10/22 aficionado and KID customer Murphy & Read Springs. Each trigger is assembled in the KID shop employing the strictest quality control knowing their reputation rides on every trigger.
Talk about INNOVATIVE! Have you noticed the new interchangeable magazine release levers for the KID Trigger. You can now purchase one of three new styles or all three. The Sportsman or the flat lever is the best lever for all you hunters. The Extended (medium) is a great universal magazine lever, and the Speed (long) lever that wraps around the bottom of the trigger guard is for all you target shooters who are racing the clock.
KID offers black and silver anodized, (silver being a clear anodizing process) trigger bodies both supplied with their signature red trigger (or as a customer from San Antonio, Texas referred to it "the salsa trigger"). Both black and silver trigger bodies have a matte glare free finish.
KID has offered a straight trigger shoe option in our trigger housing for years but the concept it is still new to most customers. As seen in the pictures on the left, the straight trigger replaced the standard curved trigger nicely and feels particularly good with a pistol grip or thumbhole style stock. We recommend that if you are using a sporter style stock that you stick with the standard curved trigger. The curved and straight trigger shoes are available in both red and black powder coating.
We offer two hammer spring options, standard and magnum. The magnum spring can be purchased for an extra $13.95 during check out and should be used with the .22 magnum and 17HMR.
What the heck is a two stage trigger? The KID two stage trigger offers a unique geometry which allows a very clean, light and repeatable break. This is accomplished by distributing the trigger pull weight into two distinct segments. The first segment or stage is an initial take up which leads to the second stage. As you pull the trigger rearward taking up the first stage weight you will feel a stop. This is the second stage. At this point the hammer and sear are engaged by .001" and any further rearward movement of the trigger will release the hammer firing the shot. The advantage to this system, which is used on all European competition autoloaders, is the ability to not only have very consistent trigger breaks but to also allow light and reliable trigger breaks. In an autoloading rifle this can only be accomplished with a two stage trigger.
The KID two stage trigger is also much safer than a single stage trigger. When cocked the KID trigger has approximately .040" hammer and sear engagement. Almost 10 times that of the factory trigger. Only KID offers a 10/22 trigger assembly which incorporates precise let off, complete reliability and total safety.
