    Just got one of these in for a client, but had to wipe it off for him before he got to the store . . . . .


    Anyone used on of these and rate it? It looks and feels VERY sexy indeed. :D
  2. Vry naice... 8)

    blows the hats off the guys to either side of you... :D
  3. Just got at TRG 42 in .338LM. Now THAT makes those on either side of you sit up and take notice. :twisted:
  4. 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.

  5. Fecking scary gun-nut freakos!!!! Why can't you collect stamps or something.

    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)

  7. There was a nice.308 Model L579 at a sale i attended a cople of weeks ago looked very nice and went for about £700

    I think Ex_Stab has one!
  9. I do believe I now know what I want from santa
  10. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. I am still firmly a remmy 700 man.
  14. 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.
