Thats got a cool look to it. How do you load it? Does the bolt hold the round or what? About how much does it weigh?

It is a Shell holder type action , it weighs about 36-38 lbs with scope!
I have a SWFA Super sniper 16x scope , trying to find another IOR 16x42 like the one on my TRG-42.
If it shoots nearly as well as my friends RAP 50 ,serial 482 should shoot MOA or better.
The recoil is almost identical to a 20guage shotgun In my opinion ,as recoil is subjective to your body type and perceived pain/shock.

I took the solid rubber forend off of mine. It isn't ever going to rest on anything with the bipod legs folding the way they do. I would love to lighten the butt stock somehow, but I haven't come up with a good method... yet.

I was thinking of doing the stock and forearm / grip in wood , just for shits n giggles , Black Nylon might be a better choice! We will see!

I looked at mine yesterday, and it has RAP and a serial stamped on it, but has Ultimate Accuracy lightly engraved above it. I had forgotten that.

All of the Receivers are RAP , But as time went on , barrels and such went to another maker , If yours has the slotted barrel and 2 part brake it is a !st gen barrel , then they went to a trumpet looking 1 piece brake and Many other Variations exist.

Slotted under the two piece brake. I believe the barrel is a Schneider.

Do you know how to adjust the trigger? I've had good luck at 1k yds but could lighten the trigger some but have no clue as to how to do it! My original paper work doesnt tell you jack!

I figured it out back in the day (94 or so), but it wasn't difficult. Dry firing is not a problem, according to Daryl Reynolds, who owns Ultimate Accuracy, and I believe it. The firing pin is huge! Adjust away, counting the half or quarter turns, and see what happens. It is a very simple design, and was easy to figure out. And you definitely can get it to fire when closing the bolt. I believe mine did that below around 4.5 lbs. I took it back to 5.5 lbs, and couldn't get it to do it again, no matter how hard and fast I closed the bolt. And no, I didn't drop test it!

Changed sear to firing pin

Being that it's a shell holder type of action... contact the manufacturer before doing ANYTHING to adjust the trigger pull!!! People have been F'd up by OOB's on shell holder type of actions because the screwed with the trigger trying to make it lighter. Let the manufacturer do it or someone who knows what they're doing with that type of action.

Be safe, it could save your body parts in the long run.

There are no Current makers for this firearm , if you take the trigger housing out and follow Bretshooters advice you can adjust it. DON'T USE LIVE AMMO! try lubing the sear engagement surfaces with moly too!
I polished mine with a stone , careful not to take off any material just polish it! I use a stone meant for a Straight razor for stoning sears , takes forever but you lessen the risk of taking off too much!

Roger that. Dry fire only.
As for taking off too much material, it isn't as critical as an AR, since the engagement is adjustable, but you certainly wouldn't want to get the edge less than square (side to side). But considering that there are no replacement parts, do be careful!
