Ruger 10/22® Replacement Trigger
Like Timney Triggers, Ruger was started shortly after World War II by a person who had a big idea and a passion for firearms. In 1949, in Southport, Connecticut, William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm came together to create America’s newest firearms manufacturer: Sturm, Ruger & Company, better known as “Ruger”. William Ruger was the technical gunsmith and business brain in the organization, while Alexander Sturm was the financial backing necessary to start the business. The first firearm that Ruger created was a semi-automatic .22 caliber pistol, which was the first of its kind to be commercially sold. The pistol was such a hit that it singlehandedly launched the entire company. However, though Ruger’s first pistol aided in the business’s start, it wasn’t until 1964 that they would design the firearm that transformed Ruger into the lead firearms manufacturer in the United States.
In 1964, Ruger released the iconic 10/22 rimfire rifle, and it immediately gained traction. The rifle was sought after by both target shooters and hunters due to the fact that it was a high quality rifle that was set at a very affordable cost point (similar to our Impact Trigger…). The Ruger 10/22 rifle quickly became one of the most popular target shooting and small game hunting rifles, and remains a top seller to this day. Due to its high popularity, many companies have created aftermarket parts for the rifle, so 10/22 owners are able to customize their rifle until it fits their needs. Our customers had been asking for a replacement trigger for their Ruger 10/22s and after some tinkering Timney finally made a customizable Ruger 10/22 replacement trigger. You ask, we deliver.
