￼Principles of Personal Defense
Last week I picked up a 10/22 takedown. Since centerfire ammo is getting hard to find, and expensive I figured having something in 22 LR might be a good idea. I e-mailed my FFL and he had one on hand.
So far I mounted a Nikon 3×9 Rimfire scope on it but kept reading(and my FFL told me) about how much of a different a Timney trigger makes. I held off initially because the trigger was almost as much as the rifle.
The more I read and looked around for one the more I wanted it. But I didn’t want to pay over $200 for it. So I found one on a site called Rimfire Sports and Custom. For around $180. I ordered it Tuesday night late, Wednesday I had a tracking number and today(Friday) it was delivered. Wow, in this time with everyone ordering anything and everything gun related? This is the place to order your 10/22 stuff from. Super fast shipping and a good price. Midway and Brownells want almost $50 more for the same part.
This trigger ads a bunch of features Ruger overlooked, the bolt and magazine releases. They both are hard to operate and this trigger fixes those issues.
Installation was quick and easy, just need a slotted screwdriver and a punch. I watched this video to install it.
Today at the range I was shooting and experienced an odd malfunction on my commander size (4″) Springfield 1911.
The last round in the standard springfield 7 round mag locked the slide back, but the empty brass got stuck in the magazine. I was able to remove the mag and flip the brass out but I can’t figure out how it happend. The only thing different today was that particular magazine had small pistol primer 45 ACP that I loaded this morning. I usually load large pistol primer, but I had a bunch of small primer brass.
