Was going to leave it bone stock, but that didn't happen. Auto bolt release, extractor, BX trigger, and a vintage 70's walnut stock with aluminum butt plate and barrel band, and not a scratch where the safety leaves it's marks, not bad for 40+ years old. Found a ruger old stock bare aluminum barrel band I like better. Still can't decide if I want to refinish the stock, or use it as is. I just didn't like the feel of the plastic stock, felt like holding a pellet rifle or BB gun. Really like the larger grip of the wood stock to, just feels like a rifle now. Plus it's only 13oz's heavier, coming in at 5lb/1.5oz with no mag.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

He's not kidding <heh>.

The Kidd single stage trigger breaks like glass.

The 2 stage is simply amazing.

Not to mention all the other goodies.

I have been looking, need to stay away from there, I'll be spending 3 times what I have in this one, or more.

Most expensive piece of my 10-22 is the trigger.

Cost as much as the whole gun.

Worth every penny.

Honestly for the money those BX triggers are an excellent option ...CDNN just had them on sale for $49 bucks ...even better for an entry level build.
