Just got at TRG 42 in .338LM. Now THAT makes those on either side of you sit up and take notice. :twisted:

I've got a TRG-22, love it ! Quite a few of my mates have them.

I don't have the factory bipod, use a Harris, but they're a good rifle.
The folding stock versions are silly money !

I shot my mates TRG-42 at Lydd yesterday.

Cheers

Should pop down me shop mate, I'm only down the road.

My client came in and was as happy as a happy thing on a VERY good day!

Looks like I'll be saving up some spondulics to get my own. I wanted to get the AW, but now I've found an alternative! :D I need something to stick my S&B PMII on.

(yes, I know, only a proper cokk gets the scope first, but start as you mean to go on is my motto)

Don't try buying the Tikka version as a money saving measure, not without comparing the two first anyway. Tikkas have changed a fair bit in build quality in the last ten years or so.

I'm a fan of Tikka but my budget is more CZ!

I fired an older one last week, and it was cracking. The more modern ones look to me like they started with a Sako and said "how can we make this cheaper?" The Steyr Pro Hunters are worth a look, the Safe Bolt System makes them for my money the best deerstalkers rifle out there.

Cheap nasty toy in comparison with a TRG I'm afraid. Remington do make good pump and auto shotguns but I wouldn't give you tuppence for one of their rifles.

I do, as Ugly suggests have a TRG22 with S&B PMII. It is superb. Don't spoil it with one of those crappy Harris bipods though, get the SAKO one or even a Parker Hale. Mine shoots sub inch groups at 400yds. Witnessed. :D

The Remington 7 is a good action and a nice and light rifle, I also think that the 700 is a versatile action which can be used for the basis of lots of custom jobs but then thats true of most reasonable mauser actions.

A mate of mine has a Sako TRG22.
I had a go with it and I must say that it is really very accurate and reliable.
he says he would never trade it for a Remington.

Looking at the stats, it's sub 1/2 MOA- so good enough for the job! Most of the rifles out there, including Remi 700's are .75 MOA or more.

I'd have to agree on the Harris bipod choice too - the SAKO one puts the swivel fulcrum at the centre of the barrel, whereas the Harris one makes the whole rifle tilt around a lower fulcrum - not as good.

Ex-Stab - you jammy b'stard (and kit-tart).

Show us yer pics mucker :D

Being jammy didn't come into it - I just had to spend lots of money! I am a kit tart though... :D

Incidentally, the SAKO bipod doesn't actually put the fulcrum at the centre of the barrel but it's so close that it gives that feel. It is very good indeed.

Is it a pain on woodland stalks?

Not at all - I take my 303 No.4 Sporter!

It would be a bit heavy for woodland stalking, especially with the S&B PMII fitted - the scope weighs 2lbs on its own. To be honest, I think the No.4 Sporter is heavier than is necessary. My Martini Metford weighs about 6lbs and would make an ideal woodland rifle if I ever got round to re-barrelling it.
