My first rifle was a Remington 700. The Remington is a nice rifle but once I tried a TRG-22, I had to get one!
I added the following Sako accessories:
Look at the following two videos. Focus on the end of the barrel, you will see the ball of exploding gases. The second video shows that same ball of fire inside the muzzle break.

The main reason why I prefer that rifle is that it is very adjustable. Everything moves. The trigger can be adjusted for pull weight, length, angle, rotation and position.
Both stages of the trigger can be adjusted for pull weight. For the first stage, the trigger assembly must be removed to expose the screw. The second stage screw is forward of the trigger.
For length, horizontal and vertical pitch, a small hex screw at the tip of the trigger allows for adjustments. That explains the whole in the trigger guard.
The stock is also very adjustable. The cheek rest can be adjusted for height, side position and pitch.
I adjusted the cheek rest height using a 10 mm. riser.
The butt can be adjusted for length (via spacers, I have 2), height, angle and pitch.
The accuracy is superb. This group is at 200 yards.
It is a great rifle but all this comes at a price. Some will find it too expensive. It is also quite heavy. Shooting any non-supported position is not easy, nor recommended.
