Default Ideas on improving the STOCK 22/45 trigger.

Everything I find seems to be upgrade, upgrade, upgrade.

Surely someone has figured out some fixes on the stock trigger.

The main problem seems to be "roll" with a bit of 'yaw' due to side slop.
I have ideas to correct the slop in 'pitch' (the pull).

I thought some thin teflon washers may reduce the side to side slop on the trigger to pin fit.

If an upgrade is the only way, I will need to seek donations

One thing you can do is remove the magazine safety. That cleans everything up.

As far as it yawing that's an slightly over size trigger pin hole in the trigger. If you shim it out its going to put a lot of pressure on the trigger making it feel stiffer and possibly cause reset issues.

As for the magazine safety you can use a cheap washer or order a mk2 hammer bushing. The bushing is the better way to go. The washer method has the same drawbacks as shimming the trigger.

The hammer bushing is 7.99 from volquartsen off brownells.

I have already installed Brian Marcy's BAM bushing. That helped with trigger feel. Makes it much more maintainable as well.

I selected this one because a review indicated that it might need to be frozen to reduce the size and get the desired interference fit. Mine didn't need it

I would agree that the trigger pin hole is over sized. ?
I'll spend some time thinking of solutions. .

Maybe this is where I can spend a little money. .

I think that there is plenty of clearance to install the 'shim' without putting any side pressure on the trigger. I use nylon/teflon washers such as I described in many non-firearm applications.
A replacement trigger may not have the same end-to-end slop.

I picked up the 10150 with the threaded barrel and removable grips.
I like it very much, but want to address the trigger movement.

I don't think shimming will solve the issue in a good way. Might contact ruger since its likely the trigger is out of spec as mine is a stock trigger and doesn't do that. They might send ya a new one or ask to send it to them. Wobble might affect the sear in a dangerous way now that I think of it a bit.

If ruger wants the gun sent in put the original parts back in or they will charge you for replacing them.

I'd rather buy the upgrade trigger from Vq, than ship it back and deal with all that

I'll use it for a while as is and see if it bothers me enough to do anything with it.

I examined the sear as I wiggled the trigger. I feel ok about that part of the action.

thats a good plan.

the vq trigger and later the sear are just awesome upgrades. and you dont have to buy them at the same time
