It is now against Reddit policy to conduct sales or exchanges of firearms on the site. If you see posts like that going forward, please report them so they can be removed. Bergara B14 owners please help me! I've run into two issues. The action screws are too short when the Magpul bottom metal is installed. I'm assuming this can be remedied with the longer action screws I found on Brownells. The other issue is a little trickier. The bolt smacks into the cheek riser when moved fully rearward.
I see that Magpul has a "no rise" riser that is 0. If that doesn't work is there any way to safely remove the cocking indicator? While I agree that the B14 hunter stock is probably one of the best factory, off-the-shelf stocks out there, I'm not sure what the dig on the Magpul Hunter is. I guess my feeling on it is precisely the opposite; it is a hunting stock.
It isn't about looks or being made out of a fancy premium material. And it gives an easy magazine kit.
If someone is putting together a varmint rifle or a long range hunting rifle, it is a solid upgrade over the factory plastic stock, and it is pretty cheap. Are you planning on using this rifle for hunting? If not, go with that Pro Looks cool as shit. I guess the Pro is too heavy then. They just kinda jammed that shit in there too close. I just took a look at mine, it seems the cocking indicator is a part of the firing pin assembly.
I mean, you could certainly file it until it is flush when it is cocked, if you really wanted to. I'm actually a little surprised here, as I can't imagine the bolt shroud on the bergara is that much longer than the remington that bolt removal isn't a problem on the remington with this stock.
I really like the ergonomics of the wrist and I wanted something that could be more customizable to fit. I also wanted to run a detachable magazine.
The Magpul fit the bill for a decent price. The factory Tupperware is nice but I much prefer the Magpul stock. If you decide to return the magpul stock, you've got several options staying in that price range; if you increase the price range the world is your tactical burrito. More vertical grip. There's boyds and choate.
I'm sure others. With any of those, a kydex cheek riser is a great choice for cheek adjustability some would argue a better choice than swappable cheek piece, as you can make any level of adjustment in the range instead of jump from one size to next.
For the magazine, if you look at my post history you'll see a recent post I did on fitting the Magpul kit to the factory Bergara stock; the TLDR is you that for long action, you should be able to get it to fit in any of those stocks looking at the pictures it might be all but a drop-in with the stocky's stocks ; the actually inletting around the bottom metal is fine but there were some places on the inside of the stock that hit on interior of the magwell.

What people are saying. Stephen Milton, Master Gunsmith.Each year the SHOT Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show in January is an opportunity for firearms manufacturers to officially showcase new products to the shooting and hunting world.
This year, there are a lot of new guns for hunters to like in the centerfire rifles segment, whether hunting elk in the Rocky Mountains or whitetails in the Southeast.
As far as overall trends in new rifle design and production, there are perhaps a few. Namely, a renewed emphasis on creating lightweight hunting rifles and a continued focus on long-range shooting and hunting. Certainly not all new rifles follow these trends, but these were just a couple commonalities I observed at the show this year.
So, while the list below is nowhere near a full accounting of the latest hunting rifles, here are a few new options for those in the market for a new game-getter. Benelli has also carried its expertise in ergonomics, adjustability and recoil reduction over from its extensive shotgun manufacturing background to this new rifle.
Because of this, the Lupo has to be one of the most user-adjustable and ergonomically designed hunting rifles on the market.
Bergara TAC Bolt Knob FOR B14 Rifles
The rifle also features a user-adjustable 2. With an approximate empty weight of just 6 pounds, 3 ounces, this is a gun that could be toted all day without issue. It achieves this weight courtesy of a carbon fiber stock available in camo or black paired with a inch medium-heavy contour PROOF Research carbon fiber-wrapped barrel.
The barrel comes equipped with a thread protector and muzzle brake. Other features, such as a user-adjustable trigger 3 to 3. Conspicuously absent, until recently, was a bolt-action rifle, and, to get even more specific, a bolt-action rifle designed for hunting.
The goal with the CROSS, according to SIG, was to develop a sort of crossover rifle—hence the name—between hunting rifles, which are sometimes prized more for their reduced weight than their accuracy, and precision rifles, which are designed for extreme accuracy and with little or no regard for overall weight. Thus, the CROSS weighs in at just over 6 pounds and yet looks and feels remarkably like a precision rifle.
It has a push-button, foldable SIG precision stock, a free-float MLOK handguard to accept a variety of attachments and a one-piece aluminum receiver that eliminates the need for bedding the action. A full-length picatinny rail permits optics mounting, a user-adjustable 2. The rifle feeds from reliable AICS-style detachable magazines.
Rebarreling a bergara
Stocks are hand-painted and include added webbing for improved texture and gripping. Barreled actions have a Sniper Grey Cerakote finish for protection from the elements. I had the opportunity to shoot the B Wilderness Terrain at the SHOT Show Industry Day at the Rangewhere members of the media get a first-hand look at new products ahead of the show, and while the Terrain molded stock with mini-chassis looked cool and felt good to shoulder, it was the accuracy, courtesy of the fantastic Bergara barrel and smooth-pulling Bergara Performance Trigger, that impressed me most as I was consistently ringing steel hundreds of yards downrange.
The Terrain model also comes equipped with seamless, omnidirectional multi-ported muzzle brake that reduces recoil, by up to 35 percent according to Bergara. At 9 to 10 pounds, depending on configuration, the Terrain might be a little heavy for many hunters; however, the lighter Ridge and Hunter models range from 7 to about 8 pounds and might be a better choice.
The rifle utilizes a tri-lug bolt design, which translates to a reliable, smooth and short degree bolt throw with ample scope clearance. The rifle is available in.Four years ago the Ruger Precision Rifle hit the scene and changed how we view factory rifles. Other rifle manufacturers took notice and have since started a trend of more affordable, but accurate factory rifles. To develop it, Bergara assembled a group of employees to help design a rifle that they, serious enthusiasts and former military, would be willing to actually own and shoot.
The end result is a harmonious marriage between shooter and accountant that seems to satisfy all. To my surprise, it was nice and comfortable and I had no problem hitting enormous torso-sized targets at a quarter-mile, even in 20 mph winds. In the past two years, I've shot it informally at both paper and steel and formally at a weekend precision rifle class. The pile of dirty brass in my reloading room tells me that the total round count is approaching rounds. Most of my measured five-shot groups across a range of factory ammo types resulted in.
In one case, using Hornady's gr. If you cherry pick three-shot groups, this is a half MOA gun. If you operate in reality, this is a reliable sub-minute rifle. In the end, my. At three times the cost of the HMR— I'd expect it to do that! The HMR uses Bergara's B14 action, a Remington clone, updated to address some common issues and problems with the factory action, including it's lack of left-handedness.
First, a stronger bolt stop. Word on the internet is that a stressful pull on the bolt, like in competition or gunfight, might break the flimsy stock stop on aresulting in the bolt being yanked right out the back. Bergara addresses this by integrating a much stronger bolt stop right from the start. No need to fumble around near the trigger to release the bolt, just pull it to the stop, press the big lever on the left-hand side of the action, and remove the bolt. Second, they've modernized the bolt knob.
Assuming your knob isn't one of those that's filled with air pockets from poor casting, you can pay a gunsmith to thread it and screw on a big knob from somebody reputable.
Bergara threads the handle and screws on their own big knob right from the factory. A two lug coned bolt is advertised to offer smoother, more reliable feeding. I had no issues feeding from the supplied magazine they send with the gun.
You'll also notice that Bergara has elected to punt the puny style extractor for something with a bit more strength. This is another common upgrade your gunsmith will happily charge you for, though they'll likely go to either a Sako or M16 style extractor. Bergara uses a Savage style extractor. Factory Hornady ammo shows what looks like primer cratering where other actions don't. We adjusted the tolerances way down on this during the later half of and everything in will be smaller to avoid the need for bushing firing pins like you indicated.
We certainly listened to the users and our market on that one. If you only shoot factory ammo, this likely won't be a problem for you. If you reload, and you like to push it, you run the risk of blowing a primer and potentially causing a lot of damage.

Gun Review: Bergara Hunting Match Rifle (HMR)
I have tried other bullet weights but they all shoot about 1. I have a background in marksmanship both in military and police work and can shoot solid 0. I sent the Rifle back to Bergara they said it was a copper fouling issue and re-crowned the barrel. I am torn on what i should do has anyone else had this issue.Apr 20, Gear. Bergara is a Spanish company well-known and respected for their barrels which are used by other rifle makers. Bergara also make a small range of rifles.
Herron Security and Sport are the Australian agents and provided the rifle along with a generous supply of ammunition to test. Out of the box, sans sights, and unloaded with the bolt in place, I measured a rifle weight of 3.
Overall length was 1. The rifle felt well-balanced and pointy. The stock was comfortable and a good fit. The B14 comes in two barrel lengths, 22 inches in the short action and 24 inches in the long action. The barrels are sporter weight and profile with a muzzle diameter of 17mm. There is one exception to that in the hefty 9.
Barrels are finished in matte black. The steel used is chrome-moly alloy. Open sights are available as an optional extra. The barrel of this 6. Other commentators have stated that the Bergara B14 action is essentially an improved Rem action, with a number of issues addressed.
That is a fair statement I would agree with. The bolt is twin-lugged with a large claw extractor, a plunger ejector and a coned bolt face, all of which contribute to smooth and reliable chambering and extraction. The action is profiled and drilled to accept Remington bases and rings.
The bolt is a compact short action. A red-coloured indicator pin at the rear of the bolt provides a clear signal as to whether the rifle is cocked, or not. The trigger looks to be a close, if not exact, copy of the Rem It is adjustable for weight and pull, but Bergara recommends that any such work be done by a gunsmith. Being a Rem clone, this also allows easy customisation for anybody wanting an aftermarket trigger. The factory trigger had negligible creep and a consistent and crisp 2.
The safety features a large knurled knob. It is a simple two-position safety which toggles positively between Safe and Fire positions. In Safe position the bolt is still free to move, allowing safe unloading if you chose to cycle the bolt for that.
The B14 can be had with a magazine as either an internal floorplate or detachable box type. The box magazine holds one less round than does the floorplate option. That is typically 4 versus 3, except for the two magnum offerings which are 3 and 2.
The box magazine is a single-stack type moulded from polymer. It was easy to load and use. The test rifle had a hinged floorplate style of magazine.
