I recently retired from HP doing my engineering thing. I Know David from my volunteer firefighter EMT where we met and became friends despite our age difference. I have started in training with him to do the 10-22 triggers because of demand for that and all the services. After three days I can say I know the trigger group fairly well. The polymer housings are just fine and 2-2.5 lbs is the same in a polymer housing as it is in an aluminum housing. I plan on making my retirement career working on firearms with him. A tier3 will blow most people away and the tier2 and tier1, I can't imagine a better trigger. And I can tell you he and I are anal when it comes to the quality of work going out the door!Everyone says the KIDD triggers -- two-stage for benchrest, single-stage for everything else -- are hands-down the best. Having said that, Hornet Custom has a good reputation, as well.
IMO, I'd rather pick up a (slightly) used trigger group on eBay and send it off to GunDoc, Brimstone, or SwampFox and have them work their magic. Ends up saving $100+ and you get just as nice a trigger as one of the completely aftermarket options.
While I have not had personal experience with Brimstone the positive feedback from many happy customers on RFC leads me to believe this is a great deal for the money.Brimstone Gunsmithing for a trigger job. They have 3 different trigger jobs available depending on what you are looking for. I got the cheapest job done for $35 including return shipping I don't think you could possibly find a better trigger for the money.
I agree if you are looking for value all of these are good options. But Kidd is the best if you have the money.IMO, I'd rather pick up a (slightly) used trigger group on eBay and send it off to GunDoc, Brimstone, or SwampFox and have them work their magic.

As the former owner of a VQ and Hornet trigger group I agree with both statements.Kidd is widely regarded as the creme de la creme and for good reason. After that there's the Jard which I really like and the VQ TG2000 which I'm not impressed with at all considering the cost. Have gotten better rebuilds for under $100 that were better than the $200 VQ one. The Hornet group doesn't really impress me much either as it's more or less just a reworked factory assembly. I'd much rather have one done by TT Shooter or Brimstone before going with a Hornet group. On the DY route, the Kidd again is at the top with their trigger job kit.
