Hello,

I just installed my new Kidd trigger on my rifle, and did a function check. The trigger feels great, and everything seems to work perfectly, except for one major problem. The trigger will fire with the gun on Safe. The Safety slides back and forth like it's supposed to, but it doesn't keep the trigger from firing.

I read through several threads, but they seemed to be mostly about guns on safe that fire when the safety is disengaged. Like I said, my trigger fires when the safety is on. I did disassemble it, and it looks like the flat part of the safety is on the top.

Obviously, I can't leave it like this. I'm sure I did something silly while assembling. Is this a common thing? Do you have any advice on how to correct this?

There's only one gunsmith in town, or I'd bring it to him. But he's running on a 3-month backlog.

Thanks,
Brad

Good news. I missed a crucial piece of info. Kidd has a YouTube video posted that I missed in my haste to get started. There is a small Allen head set screw on the sear. Just a small tweak has it working perfectly.

In my opinion you have installed the best 10/22 trigger on the market. Glad you found the set screw. I have two of the drop in trigger units and one of his 2 stage triggers, been using the drop ins for a couple of years and have had the 2 stage for a little less than a year. I know this sounds like a commercial but Kidd components are the best you can get. Kidd parts are expensive, but I think the quality of their parts warrants the cost.

I've tried most of the aftermarket triggers on the market. I agree. Tony Kidd makes the best 10/22 triggers on the market.
