Bergara revives the proud tradition of rimfire training rifles with its B-14 R, a .22 Long Rifle bolt-action that mimics the look and feel of the company’s popular HMR center-fire.
With its tactical-style stock, and with controls and a footprint based on the Remington Model 700, Bergara contends the B-14 R will simulate the handling and shooting characteristics of many current rifles.
The new .22 is a far cry from the typical backyard plinker. It weighs 9 lbs., 4 ozs., sports a full-length integral mini-chassis to ensure utmost stability and is fitted with a button-rifled, heavy-contour 18" barrel produced at Bergara’s ultra-modern plant in Spain.
The stock is likewise high-performance, with cheekrest and length-of-pull adjustability. The box magazine, fitted with a 10-round .22 Long Rifle insert, outwardly mirrors the short-action AICS magazines supplied with the HMR.
Though a trainer was the objective, with the recent growth in long-range rimfire disciplines such as NRL22 and PRS .22, Bergara has high hopes of this new rifle winning matches.
The suggested retail price on the Bergara B-14 R is $1,150. For more information on the new rifle, visit bergara.online/us/
