What am I giving up with a 20" barrel compared with a 26" barrel for the Sako TRG 22?
besides Weight...about 50-100 FPS in velocity with factory loads..
More recoil with the 20" as well. I prefer shorter rifles myself.
How will this affect accuracy downrange?
not much at all since accuracy is relavent to lots of factors...
as Mooseman pointed out there will be some velocity loss.
We are all different. For me a longer, slightly heavier barrel is a an asset especially when it comes to holding steady for longer shots. This is not the case for all shooters.
If possible hold the gun in each barrel length to see what is best for you.
I believe caliber can make a difference as to barrel length as well? And I believe the TRG 22 is in .308 Winchester correct? Or do they now offer it in other calibers?
Either way, maybe this conversation might help?
And here's a good article on barrel length.

And yet another conversation.
And again, these are if it's in .308 but even if not in .308, the information will still help. I would think anyhow?
And though some don't or might not agree with what he says or has to say, here's his article on the subject as well...
Downrange ballistics will obviously change. You'll just have to relearn where she'll print.
