    Hapy with my BX trigger

    I"ve had my Ruger BX trigger for bout 6 weeks now, and going from a 5.5lb pull to 2.5 has really been nice.
    For the money it was a good upgrade, certainly not on par with the more expensive triggers,but good enough for my uses.

    When I went to buy it I had my scale with me,as they can be tested in their special packaging.
    the counterman told me,and we proved,the 10-22's are bing shpped with EIGHT plus pound triggers

    If you've been needing a bit better trigger for well under a hundred bucks, do consider the BX.

    Converted my 10/22 to the BX trigger. It was a great improvement. I highly recommend it.

    Ruger sells a rifle with an exceedingly heavy trigger pull and then offers a nicer trigger for $75. Why not just make a nice trigger to begin with? I guess I'd go with another manufacturer out of principle.

    Has to do with liability and most likely the ability to sell the rifles in California

    I bought mine new for local for $59 bucks last year......well worth the money......why doesn't Ruger include it from the factory? They want to squeeze another $60 out of you? It's an incentive to buy there crappy rifle? Idk.....it a good trigger for the money, but I will not every buy another Ruger 10/22 or Ruger anything.......

    So you can only buy firearms in CA that have gritty, creepy triggers that break at 5+ pounds? CZ doesn't sell any of their rimfire rifles in CA?

    I suspect Ruger is just squeezing some more money from its customers.

    This is the reason I forked out $200 on a Kidd trigger group. I'd advise against Kidd, because you'll want on in every 10/22 and Charger you have. Mine is in a Charger and it is fantastic.

    The BX is a good trigger group. Also check out Brimstone. For about $35 they will rework your trigger into a thing of beauty. I have found, too, that there is significant overtravel in both triggers, which can be fixed with an 8:32 x 1/4” Allen screw in the back of the trigger guard.

    you are correct, when I bought my BX I had my trigger pull gauge with me to test one,and the counter man and I checked 2 new ones,and all new ones,as he said, are coming in at 8 lbs. !! that stinks ~

    boy howdy !! now that i have a 2.5 lb trigger, I want 1.5 ! lol

    no reason to put a decent trigger in the rifles if they think they can sell you a slightly better one at additional cost.
