The B-14 gives you the quality of a custom rifle at a price most hunters can afford. Bergara has combined the best barrel manufacturing along with their longstanding commitment to quality to bring you a barrel that performs like it was custom made. Aside from the barrel, the bolt with its enlarged bolt handle, is nearly perfect in its simplicity and with the factory trigger coming in at 3lbs and a guarantee to produce groups of 1.0 MOA or less at 100 yards with quality factory match grade ammunition, the manufacturing of this rifle better be spot on.

According to Brad Fitzpatrick, writer for American Hunter, the Bergara B-14 Ridge blurs the lines between sporter and target rifles,  and despite its heavy-contour barrel this rifle is light enough to carry yet offers the stability and accuracy of a dedicated long-range gun.

Brad said this was rifle was so versatile, it can be used as a varmint, predator, and a big game rifle. Without question – the Bergara B-14 is “one of the best values in bolt guns”.

During the molding process, solid epoxy pillars are permanently molded into place, providing a secure and stable bedding surface for the barreled action. The base color is dark gray with white and black flecks. A SoftTouch coating gives the stock soft, tacky feel that is easy to grip even in harsh weather.
