I have owned a TRG 42 and it was easily the nicest factory rifle I have ever touched. Awesome rifle. But a lot of very trustworthy sources say the AI is even nicer/more well built, I dont know how, but it seems to be the consensus amongst those who spend time with both.
after owning and using both for an extended period. Ill have to say the Sako really won me over with the trigger and how it seemed to shoot as well as the AW. I loved it, but honestly I just missed my AW and now matter how much I could not justify buying another one, I just had to. It was the rifle I always wanted. Just like you said. They are both such incredible rifles, the AW can swich barrels easier and feels much better with a harris bipod.
To me the sakos trigger is much better and the mags are top notch, but the accessories are killer. I even like the way the sako felt in my hands ( more natural feel). i wish I could just have kept both. Maybe ill buy another trg someday.
