Southport, CT – ( – Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) announces the launch of the BX-Trigger™: a light, crisp, “drop-in” replacement trigger assembly that is compatible with all Ruger® 10/22® rifles and 22 Charger™ pistols. The BX-Trigger is a Genuine Ruger Factory Accessory and is the perfect upgrade for all 10/22 rifles and 22 Charger pistol models because of the significantly reduced pull weight of approximately 2.75 pounds (versus 6 pounds on the standard 10/22 trigger).

“We have made continuous improvements to the 10/22 over the years, but the BX-Trigger is an exciting performance advancement,” said Ruger President and COO, Chris Killoy. “The BX-Trigger was designed for easy installation, superior performance, and legendary Ruger reliability. Like the popular BX-25® magazine for the 10/22, the BX-Trigger will deliver the excellence and value that shooters have come to expect from Ruger.”

The BX-Trigger is sold as a complete assembly that “drops in” to replace the existing trigger assembly, with no additional adjustment or “fitting” required. A video of the installation process can be found at

Beginning December 19, the Ruger BX-Trigger will be available for purchase directly from Ruger at or from local independent firearms retailers.

Will this trigger pack also work in the 10/22mag rifles ? If not, do you know if they will be making one for the Magnum rifle ??


Maybe they finally fixed the pesky bolt release too?


Ruger hasn’t, but there are plenty of after-market drop-in replacements. Volquartsen makes a nice one, it’s $16 on Amazon.

$89 for a drop in trigger for a customer who already bought their rifle?, I have 3 10/22’s. Am I alone in thinking there should be a discount for a customer who already purchased a ruger?

So what’s the cost? I was interested in a Timny trigger until I discovered it cost twice as much as my 10/22.


Says 89.95 when I touched the ad. ^^
