Question of the day…

Why do you thread the end of your barrels to .475″ instead of .400″?  It would be easier for us to thread all of our muzzles to .400″, but Tony doesn’t just do things because they are easy.  Making the threads a little deeper will give the cap, muzzle brake, silencer just that much more to fit thus creating a superior product.  There are some silencer manufactures that use a .400″ thread depth and we can retro fit a KIDD barrel or make the threads on your KIDD barrel to your requested depth.  Good shooting, 10/22 Kidd

Question of the day…

Why do I have to pay excise tax on your complete rifle but I don’t have to on a barreled action?  Excise tax is paid on all rifle by any major manufacturer.  Our customers see the excise tax calculation, which is 11% of the total because we build custom rifles so the price varies depending on the customers wish list.  On our complete rifles already assembled and ready to go there is not a separate excise tax calculation but I assure you that we pay the federal tax due on that rifle as well.  According to the IRS (the agency collecting the excise tax), a rifle is a barrel, receiver, and stock, so on a barreled action there is no stock…hence no excise tax.  Good shooting, 1022 KIDD

Question of the day…

I really like the look of the black 10/22 bolts you sell, will the black rub off?  We have our bolt ion bonded which is a very durable yet very thin coating that stands up to the riggers of bolt action.  The coating will not wear and will remain a nice deep black for the duration.  Our 1022 bolts come complete with firing pin and extractor.  We offer the bolts in silver or black with a matte finish or decorative scalloped finish.  Good shooting, 1022 KIDD

Question of the day…

Did you reduce the cost on your great Classic slip fit receiver even more?  Our slip fit receiver are currently on sale, but we have separated the cost of the v-block and take down screw out of the receiver.  Many customers already have these products and would like to have the choice to purchase them or not.  We still have the cost of the v-block included in our Classic slip fit barreled action because when we mount a barrel to the receiver it is best to make sure that it stays put.  Good shooting, 10/22 KIDD

Question of the day…

I bought your patented two stage trigger from you in 2011.  Can I change the trigger blade from a black curved blade to a red straight blade?  Yes, you can change that blade out yourself.  You will need to remove the trigger unit from the barreled action, then pop the main spring retainer from the capture in the top of the trigger guard.  By removing the main spring retainer, hammer strut and hammer strut spring you will gain access to the 1/16th set screw holding in the trigger blade.  After the mainspring retainer is out put the safety on so that the hammer edge doesn’t get under the sear edge.  Loosen the set screw, pull out the trigger blade.  As you put the new trigger blade in, leave an 1/8″ gap between the shoulder of the trigger blade the silver machined piece that is housing the trigger blade pin.  Tighten the set screw and push the hammer strut with spring and main spring retainer back into the capture.  Tony also has a technical video of then process.  Good shooting, 1022 KIDD

Question of the day…

Do your 10/22 receivers come with scope rails?  Yes, they do come with either a zero, 10, or 20 degree scope rail.  We utilize an interchangeable scope base system that allows the shooter to change the base out with another base but yet has the stability of an integral base due to the machined channel and mating groove of the system.  Our receivers also come with the KIDD v-block and the takedown screw.  And they are currently on sale.  Good shooting, 1022 KIDD

Question of the day…

Will your10-22 Ultra Lightweight barrels go on sale again soon?  We had a lower introductory price on our 10-22 Ultra Lightweight barrels in order to spur interest in our newly designed 10-22 barrel, but since the first 10 days or so on the market we have been back ordered.  Our 10-22 Ultra Lightweight barrel was more popular than we had initially anticipated.  So, we don’t see a sale in the near future.  Good shooting, 1022 KIDD
