Does anyone have a cheap trigger modification for a ruge 10/22, the trigger is the worst I have seen on these guns.

I added the Volquartzen 10/22 Target Hammer (http://www.volquartsen.com/product.asp?pid=49) to my 10/22. I'm happy with it. It is a little cheaper at Rimfire Sports & Custom (http://www.rimfiresports.com/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=RSC&Product_Code=VC10TH&Category_Code=TPRK).

Single most significant improvement you can do is replace the hammer with an aftermarket one that has had the sear notch reprofiled. (Or do it yourself, which I do. Shorten and square up the bearing surface that the sear butts up against.)

I installed a Power Custom hammer and sear kit from Brownells using all ten thumbs and it turned out well. Just a bit of honing necessary to enable the safety to work properly--the instrux are good.

Ditto on the Volquartsen hammer. It's a drop in part and works wonders for the trigger. :)

VQ hammer lightens up the trigger pull, but, IMHO, that only makes the horrendous creep that much more noticable. This can be fixed by drilling and tapping the sear for a set screw to adjust engagement or adding material (JB weld) to the sear for the same effect. PC recently came out with a hammer/sear combo that already has the set screw in the sear, but they don't offer the sear by itself (yet). VQ hammer is less than $35 (sometimes they sell cosmetic seconds direct for as low as $20 - check their website). The PC hammer/sear set is around $80-$90, I think. Many also drill and tap the trigger for a set screw to remove over travel.

Or, if you are really cheap, the trigger return spring can be replaced with one from a Clickster mechanical pencil. Won't get the same results, but can help a small bit.

Best place to read up is http://www.rimfirecental.com - their "Tips & Tricks" section has many DIY-type projects, depending on your level of skill.

If it hasn't already been said, buy the VQ hammer.
