I've read a lot of posts about the TRG-s on this forum. This seems to be the place for information about these rifles. I've had one of these for 10 years or so but have never done much with it. I am thinking about rebarreling and restocking it. I've not made any final decisions on any of this yet but I'm thinking about: 1. McMillan A3 with McMillan bottom metal. 2. Bartlein 23" #9 HV Modified (tapers to .935") barrel. 3. Remington recoil lug. This is not the kind of project that I am used to, I'm more familiar with semi-autos so I am sort of a duck out of water with this one. I will get a quality smith to do the work, but what I need is guidance as to any flaws in my choices. Am I going to regret a 23" barrel instead of 26"? I only have access to an 800 yard range at present, but I want to be able to, or at least the rifle to be able to reach out to 2000 yards so that if I ever do have access to that kind of range I can use it. I like the 23" for weight saving and more compactness. I'll probably have the barrel fluted as well if there is significant weight savings with that. But if there is significant loss balistically with the 23" barrel I will go with a 26". This is really where I need some expert advice. Also, the barrel contour that I am thinking about, is it too light? Should I go heavier for these ranges? I've never really liked the original TRG-S magazine. Are there other options? Should I not get McMillan bottom metal? I once read that a TRG magazine will work in a TRG- S with some slight modification to the magazine. But with that modification, does it make it as lousy as the TRG-S magazine? I failed to mention, that I do already have the Near mount. It is a very nice mount. And I am looking at a Tango Down bipod. I think it is designed for an AR type rifle, but I really like the simplicity and smooth lines of it. That is probably going to be my next purchase as it can be done relatively cheap and mounted to the existing stock with little effort. The rest of this project is kind of an all-encompassing deal that looks like it is going to cost about $1200 just in parts. I'm a bit reluctant to go down that path on a rifle that cost me $500. Have I lost my mind?
