posted on April 30, 2016

Bergara has become one of the most well-known and respected barrel makers worldwide, building its Spanish-made, precision barrels for many top U.S. and European rifle manufacturers. Now the company is offering its own bolt-action rifle—the B-14 Timber—to the consumer market. Imported by Bergara USA's parent company, BPI Outdoors, the Performance Series B-14 Timber features Bergara's proprietary premium action, barrel and oil-finished walnut stock. 

The rifle's 4140 chromoly steel barrel has undergone a proprietary honing process to guarantee sub-m.o.a. accuracy with factory match-grade ammunition, and is finished in a matte blue. The action also features a coned bolt nose and breech to ease lockup and ensure smooth feeding. A bolt guide is used to eliminate binding. For more on the B-14 Timber rifle, watch this week's "NRA Gun of the Week" video hosted by Christopher Olsen.
