Well i have done a little filing of the 10/22 sear's before and have lightened my triggers, but decided i would go a little farther on this build just to see how nice i could get it before I bought a timney drop in. Well after all my work lets just say i am Not buying a drop in trigger after today, I am only buying a tuffer buffer and a power custom red trigger.

I cleaned up the sear today and took some metal off of it. polished it, the hammer and the disconnector. I mean i polished the fire out of them. I also chamfered the bolt.

All i can say is WOOOOW. I had no idea how much the polishing helped. It feels as if its lighter than my 22-250 with a 3 lbs trigger. I dont have a gauge so i really won't know until i get one. This is the best feeling trigger i have ever felt on a 22 and didnt cost me a dime, I will be taking the slop out of the sear and disconnector sometimes this afternoon. The bolt actually is a little easier to pull back now as well and it is stated this chamfering will help with the ejection of sub sonic ammo.

Also i got all of this info from rimfirecentral on the forums in the tips and tricks section. Just thought i would post up my success story lol.

Thanks for all the help guys

Congratulations, go slow, double check and have fun. You will enjoy shooting it even better now that you did the work.
When I am trying to find which ammo my gun likes best, I will get a box of several different brands. I like CCI CBs. The CB LONG is 710 fps. The Aguila 60 gr. SSS is rated at 950 fps. I have been wanting to try it. I think that I have a box in my shop but have not tried it yet. I had pretty good results with the CB shorts. They were super quite in my old Remington with a 24 inch barrel and I killed several squirrels with them. I knew a guy that always squirrel hunted with the CB LOADS.
