Nice, was this originally a stock Sako trg 22 in 6.5 creedmoor?Some crappy pics of my TRG-22 in 6.5 Creedmoor. I will post better ones when I can. Specs:
Action trued and barreled by SAC. Bartlein 24" Sendero with spiral fluting, little bastard brake. LOP adjuster by Terje. Badger 35 MOA rail with Badger 1" rings. Flatline Ops articulated anti cant with Sniper tools Cosine indicator. Harris bipod with ARMS #32 throw lever. I can't remember the brand of fore end rail for the bipod. It is topped by an S&B PMII 5x25 with H59 reticle. It is a dream to shoot.
I can get you an exact weight tonight.Does anyone know what the rear stock section weighs as a whole? Cheek piece, butt pad, the whole thing? I have a KRG folder and thinking I may ditch it for the factory stock if it shaves enough weight off the rifle.
Thank you, I was really hoping for more weight loss than that. It should really be no problem though. I have hiked a few miles with this heavy rifle through the woods before.Sorry for the late response, the weight is 1lb 11oz.
About 1lb lighter than the KRG folder.
Nice looking 22. I bet it shoots as well as it looks!I did a couple tweaks to the -22. First some paint, Custom Coatings did a great job. Second and more important I put in an adjustable cheekpiece made by Terje. I cannot recommend his work enough. He did an awesome job. Being able to dial in the cheekpiece height really made a difference to my consistency. I still need to have it painted.
Thanks for the response. I have a metal trigger guard but I also have an Allen screw limiter. I know the rifle is a new production as it was just released in the 6.5 creedmor caliber. So I'm not sure. I guess it could be that they've started to make the trigger guards metal again?michiman if you have the newer version of the trigger (polymer guard) there is an Allen screw that limits the amount you can back it out. If you have the older version there is no limiter. If you back it out too much it would be bad. (Might need to be sent to Beretta to be fixed.)
In theory the trigger weight for the newer trigger is between 2.9 to 5LBs. I *think* the older version is 2 to 4LBs Mine (TRG 22, old trigger and M10, new trigger) are both set at 2.2LBs.
I would recommend backing it out 1/4 turn at a time and check the weight with a trigger pull gauge. I wouldn't bring it below 2.2. If you start to feel resistance when you are backing the screw out stop.
I have one of the early models and love it. The only downside I can think of is the added weight. My folding stock takes tools to adjust, but I believe they are 100% tool less adjustable now days. They may have also reduced the bulk and weight on them as well. Lock up is solid.Hello
As we are talking TRG; I have a TRG 42 338LM and was contemplating installing the KRG folding stock. Anyone has one and what are your impressions, solid construction, comfortable, adjustments?
Thanks JBM_DC; still gathering info on these.I like bulletproof systems and as both my TRG are shooters, want to make sure that system is a plus and not a PITA in a long run. I like the adjustments possibilities and the shorter signature for transportation. Wish there was a good recent video on that TRG KRG folding stock.I have one of the early models and love it.

SAC turned it around remarkably quick ... here are the pics they sent over. I will repaint the stock (probably DuraCoat) as soon as I get it. Looks great to me. Thanks to Mark and Sara at SAC!My 22 just shipped to Mark at SAC for a 6.5 Creedmoor rebarrel. Looking forward to the results. Wish I could swing the Cadex chassis but not at the moment. Will post pics when it gets home.
Thanks. I'm referring to a bighorn TL3 though, not the Tikka. I guess at this point though I'm really just torn between the TRG and the AI AT. I don't do well with pistol grip chassis and want a hard use factory rifle so that leaves one option....The ejection is great on Sakos in general and TRGs in particular. A very common upgrade to other brands is "Sako style ejector"
To my knowledge there aren't conversion kits available for AICS mags. KRG made one for awhile but stopped. There are some chassis that may accept AICS.
If you are talking about a choice between Tikka T3 and a TRG I would say TRG hands down. They are a lot more money but are a better rifle IMHO. The two stage trigger on the TRG is fantastic.
Having said that there is nothing wrong with a T3. They are well made and accurate out of the box. They have a single stage trigger but it is pretty nice. There are a lot of aftermarket parts for Tikka available. That is not true for the TRG. You buy Sako, you use Sako.
Are there any other deals like you got?Soooo, I just picked up one of the new M10s. I got a great deal that I just could not resist. It is black and I have a 26" 308 barrel and a 27" 338 barrel. I should be able to do a range report next week. I will post pics as well. My initial impressions are VERY positive. Beautiful fit and finish and of course the trigger is superb
