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

if anyone would like some pictures i can take them when i tear her back down tonight to take the slack/slop out of the trigger, sorry i will not have the before and afters,
pics uploading now guys but they are bad, the polished areas are blurring the pictures for some reason and they suck, but they will give you an idea.

On the other hand after 15 to 20 times of put togethers and tear downs, i FINALLY got the slop out of the trigger and let me tell yall it was worth it. Also went down to my neighbors that has a trigger pull gauge and had several breaks at 2.3 and 2.4 lbs. that was before the slop was taken out of the trigger, now she breaks without any takeup. maybe a few thousandths. very very clean.

For some reason The payoff is a 1000 times better when I do something myself in stead of paying someone or buying the drop in. Hoping to use his gauge again tomorrow and make sure the pull has not changed after the slop was taken out, For those wondering i used the same site as before and did the JB weld trick. Pics coming soon

here is a pic of my girl for now, I left her in the safe for a while after the build and now its time to start back up on her. Gotta get a can and ND3 now with a Red power custom trigger, and skeleton bolt handle.

here are a few pictures of the polished parts, sorry for the poor quality. If you check the site i referred to it has very good detailed pictures.

lol thanks, i will take some better pictures when i tear her down again and put the power custom trigger in. When it comes in from midway
thanks guys, and paul are you wanting a picture of just my bolt or how its done, here is the link that i used to do mine off of. If you still want a picture of mine let me know and i will tear it back down and get a picture for you. also my picture will only be the after of the chamfering not a before like is posted in this link.

as yall may know i ordered a red power custom trigger with the set screw, I am also getting the volquartsen Red charging handle to match when it comes back in stock at midway,

Anyway here is my question, I need a honest answer! Whats the most accurate, quietest, and best sub sonic ammo on the market to use with a can????
its a tactical solutions 18.5 and thanks for the info on the sub sonic guys
also is a tactical solutions V-block worth the money guys????
