Review: 10 Top Bolt-Action Rifles For Hunting and More

Gun Digest

In March of this year, Luke Hartle wrote an article about the top 10 bolt-action rifles that was published in Gun Digest. In this article, he mentions the Bergara B-14 Ridge. Below, is that part of the article.

Bolt Action Bergara

“If you’re seriously shopping for a bolt-action sporting rifle and have yet to look under the hood of a Bergara, your search simply is not complete. New for 2018, the B-14 Ridge features a molded synthetic, glass-fiber reinforced polymer stock, which adds as much strength to the rifle as is does beauty. A SoftTouch coating is then applied to create a soft yet tacky feel for exceptional grip. The Bergara 4140 CrMo steel barrel is finished in matte blue and available in a 22-inch (7.9 pounds) and 24-inch (8.1 pounds) configurations. B-14 Ridge stocks are bedded with integral pillars for stability and enhanced accuracy, and the barrel is threaded to accept muzzle brakes or suppressors.

And, of course, what would a Bergara rifle be without mentioning the Spanish Bergara barrel around which this rifle is built? The action is Bergara’s own B-14 Action, featuring a two-lug bolt with a sliding plate extractor and a “coned” bolt nose and breech to create ultra-smooth feeding and extraction. The Bergara curved trigger comes set at near 3 pounds, and the action is drilled and tapped to fit Remington 700 style rings and bases.

The B-14 Ridge is available in: .22-250 Rem., .243 Win., .270 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, .30-06, .308 Win., .300 Win. Mag. and 7mm Rem. Mag.”
