    This company would be much better served if they provided some photos of assembled guns with their parts. I even went to their website and didn’t see any.

      You just click the “rifles” tab on the home page.

      They probably sell 1000 barrels for every 1 rifle [cost-wise] so marketing their parts works well for them. They have a huge fan base and are very well respected. I couldn’t reccomend them more. My 1.25lb Volquartsen felt like a cheap toy compared to my 2-stage Kidd.

  • Joseph Goins

    I tried some of these and I still prefer Volquartsen to pimp out my 10/22s.

    • Ragged Hole

      Their 2 stage is the only one on the market and cannot be beat. Single stages are really good but for the ultimate precision interface having a 3oz uptake with a 3oz clean snappy break CAN’T be beat 😉

    Kidd triggers rock….hands down.


    I have owned a Kidd Classic for almost 5 years now. It is the ultimate 1-/22. The trigger is 1lb and is hands-down the best trigger I have ever pulled. There is simply not a better trigger in the world. Big claim, but true.

    I have several Volquartsen builds as well. The Kidd is better in every single aspect. Those “in the know” buy Kidd when they want the best 22lr semi in the world. No I don’t work for Kidd, it is just the best unknown rifle out there.

    • Ragged Hole

      Well said, I have had Kidd classics and a Supergrade and have to agree, their two stage can’t be beat!

  • Disarmed in CA

    What a racket. Can you make money shooting a 10/22 well? I try not to purchase any single part that more than doubles my financial investment in an inexpensive rifle, but if I could make enough to justify the expensive parts maybe….

    • Ragged Hole

      Interesting ideology, I don’t base what I spend on guns or upgrades on how much I can makeover them in return but I get it, and can understand.

  • Simon R.

    Nothing but good things to say about every KIDD product Ive bought. Triggers to barrels. Machining quality and function is unreal.
