Read this. However, changing the barrel and trigger changes everything about it. It may or may not still shoot less than an inch at 100 yards. Who made the barrel? Who installed it?

The fact that someone replaed the trigger with a Timney is a plus, IMO. Rebarreled by Weatherby? Does the barrel say Weatherby on it? If so, then it is likely a Krieger Criterion barrel, not a bad barrel at all. But as T.O'Heir states, that rifle is no longer the same as when it left the factory, so it is an unknown. But, all things considered, it is probably a good shooter.

Replaced trigger and barrel sort makes it a "start over" in my book. Whether it's still a "sub moa" is a big question mark.
