So. Since this:

Is no longer working past page 10, let's start a new one.

For anything TRG related.
Or just for showing off...

My first serious rifle was an older TRG, one that came from the factory with a stainless barrel and a blued action. BY FAR the most comfortable and consistently accurate rifle I ever owned. I foolishly sold it. I ended trying a desert tech SRS, AIAX then a custom and I’ve yet to find anything that’s as enjoyable to shoot as the TRG. I found the factory buttstock more comfortable but the lack of quick adjustments led me to the W3 folder which I thought was awesome.

Currently on the lookout for another one. I miss that trigger!

    Nice collection!

    I’ve also been really tempted to try the 200STR/ SSG3000. Hard to beat a TRG though.
    Agreed, the TRG is my all time favorite. But the 200STR or SSG3000 is truly amazing, especially with the 22lr conversion.

    How well does the 6br work in the TRG? What did you do for mags?
    It’s a great accurate rifle, but feeds like a pig on a skateboard…

    I’ve had to modify the standard magazine and also make a single shot 3d printed magazine.

    Anybody have recommendations for touch up paints for TRG factory stocks, especially the desert tan? I’ve used a duracoat “sako green” before and it matched the green stock perfectly but I haven’t found a tan version.

    I’m not in the market for a TRG but am curious why a few guys already have mentioned “pre 13”? I assume that means before 2013? What changed?

    Regardless, these are some amazing rifles

    The trigger design was changed in 2013. Many shooters prefer the feel of the pre-2013 triggers.
    My TRGs have post-2013 triggers and I love them. I've never tried the older models.

    The pre 13 rifles had fully adjustable triggers, meaning there were no limits on the adjustments and some people were adjusting them so lightly they would not re-set after they were fired. This reportedly required sending back to Beretta for repair, however I have owned 3-4 of them and adjusted them all fairly light without issue. The post 13 rifles had a limiting screw for the weight adjustment so they could not go as light, a different safety lever, and a different butt pad. I have owned 2 post 13 versions as well and I much prefer the pre 13, and currently am in the market for a 20” 308…

    But in all fairness an SSG3000 / 200STR trigger is every bit as good as the pre 13 TRG trigger...
