Kidd makes the best triggers, but personally I don't think $300 for a trigger on a $200 rifle makes sense. If I were you I'd get a VQ hammer and polish the internals yourself. I wrote up some directions on plishing, they're around here somewhere.
If you polish the internals and replace the hammer you'll have a great trigger for very little cost.
Just rememeber, you can spend $3000 or $300 in upgrades for a 10/22. The factory stock bolt action 22 in the next lane will outshoot either of them. So IMO, I wouldn't get overly crazy spending money on it.
BTW, I have B&C stock on one of mine as well and like it a lot.

I dunno, I've seen soe pretty accurate 10/22's and I've seen some pretty un-accurate bolty.

You're right, I should have been more clear. A nice 10/22 can certainly hold it's own up against many bolt actions.
What I see quite often, especially over at RFC, is people dumping over 3K in a 10/22 trying to get the most accuracy out of them. I think it's kind of silly since a semi will never be as accurate as the best bolt rifles.

IMO if you spend $300 you'll have a rifle that can shoot practically as good as a 3K one.

I have a 10/22 that has about $1500 into it and another on that has $500 into it. The one with $500 into it shoots better than the more expensive one
So if I had to do it over again I would have not spent as much on the one knowing what I know now.

FWIT, my favorite 10/22 is a factory stock one. All I did to it was polished the internals, changed the extractor, and swapped the bolt buffer. It has all the original outside furniture, but shoots great even with the iron sites.

A close second after Feinwerkbau air rifles, Kidd triggers are the second-best trigger I've ever felt, in the world, ever. I'd be willing to bet that the factory barrel with a Kidd trigger shoots better than the factory trigger and a bull barrel, unless you're shooting from the bench or something.

Seriously, it's worth it. A volquartsen hammer doesn't even come close.

I finished building one a few weeks back and I am about 1300 into mine, for me it was about building the rifle, it has been a blast! Now my next project will be rebuilding my donor rifle back to semi stock condition, basically I will use the Ruger action and upgrade it and use the stock stock. As I'm sure you'll hear this is a very addicting sport. Hopefully I got the pic attached, I'm very happy with the way it looks but I have not shot it yet so I can't say how it shoots.

+1 on bolt action rifles outshooting 1022. I own a Marlin 925R, a $200 rifle that came with a long bull barrel and bolt action from the box and it outdid the most insanely expensive 1022's at the range. Believe me or not....

Just for the record, I also own a stock 1022 with a scope.

Default Keeping it simple

Basically I just spruced-up the innards a little and it shoots better than I can...
