Ruger BX Trigger for 10/22 and 22 Charger

When I visited Ruger at SHOT I was able to take a look at their new BX trigger, which is for their 10/22 rifles and 22 Charger pistols. The BX is self-contained and literally drops right into place, making it one of the simplest trigger installations I’ve ever seen.



From Ruger:

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the launch of the BX-Trigger™: a light, crisp, “drop-in” replacement trigger assembly that is compatible with all Ruger® 10/22® rifles and 22 Charger™ pistols. The BX-Trigger is a Genuine Ruger Factory Accessory and is the perfect upgrade for all 10/22 rifles and 22 Charger pistol models because of the significantly reduced pull weight of approximately 2.75 pounds (versus 6 pounds on the standard 10/22 trigger).

“We have made continuous improvements to the 10/22 over the years, but the BX-Trigger is an exciting performance advancement,” said Ruger President and COO, Chris Killoy. “The BX-Trigger was designed for easy installation, superior performance, and legendary Ruger reliability. Like the popular BX-25® magazine for the 10/22, the BX-Trigger will deliver the excellence and value that shooters have come to expect from Ruger.”

The BX-Trigger is sold as a complete assembly that “drops in” to replace the existing trigger assembly, with no additional adjustment or “fitting” required. A video of the installation process can be found at

MSRP is $89.95. Take a look at:

    Too bad they did not have this about 4 years ago when I bought a timney trigger for my 10/22, which was more than twice as much as the MSRP on the BX trigger. Will Rugger offer 10/22 rifles with the BX trigger already installed?

    Did you get a chance to pull the trigger to see how it felt?

    Drop in is great but only if it is a decent improvement in my mind.

      Ditto: Nothing more than a “press release” post unless you can detail your impressions of the trigger pull, break, etc.

    I bought one of the BX triggers a week ago and shot it for the first time last Saturday (1/17/15). Paid $64.95 for it at my local shop (plus tax of course). The trigger is very well done and has a very nice, light & crisp pull. I don’t have it in front of me at the moment, but I don’t recall much in the way of take up, no creep, and it breaks crisply & cleanly. The reset is very positive with a very easy to feel and very audible click. It reminds me of my Glock 34 reset. At $65 I think Ruger has hit this one out of the park as it’s priced within the impulse buy range and there’s nothing else even close in price, quality, and installation ease. To help the impulse buy, the packaging is ingeniously designed to allow you to try the trigger on the store shelf before buying. This trigger replaced a Power Custom trigger and hammer assembly I had gone so far as to polish and shim to take all the play out. That Power Custom was installed in the original metal trigger housing. The BX trigger is a huge improvement. I was still able to use my Power Custom mag release in the new Ruger BX trigger assembly with no issues and it fits great. I only have about 50 rounds through it so far to check function. Looking forward to the next steel shoot to try it under some competition pressure.

    This is pretty much vapor ware, I haven’t been able to find one of these unicorns since the “release”.

    How about just improving the stock trigger in every 22 rifle you make, Ruger?

      This is it in a nutshell why not every new 10/22 hitting the shelves come with it. They are admitting that the stock trigger can be improved and they have done it why not install it in all their 10/22s?
