To give people a hint of their new rifle, Bergara North America showed the public a picture of the magazine (see below).
That does look a little strange, but it doesn’t take long before the average reader understands it’s a magazine for .22LR.
Moments later the full product release was unveiled.
Bergara is proud to announce our B-14R .22 LR Rifle
The Bergara B-14 R .22 LR is the latest offering in their ever-popular B-14 series of rifles.
Ben Fleming VP of Sales for Bergara states. “Our team has been working on a very accurate full size .22 precision trainer for several years now with a goal to help set the bar with the .22 shooters.
With this gun, we are confident that it will help long-range .22 shooting grow for years to come.” Dakota Russell, National Sales Manager for Bergara added, “Our customers have been requesting a gun like this for some time, and with the growing NRL22 and PRS .22 competition matches the timing was right to introduce a rifle of this nature.”
This rifle is designed as a true rimfire “trainer” is that it works within the dimensions of a REM700 platform, allowing shooters to have a similar size and feel to their centerfire rifle, or even set up as a clone to their centerfire to train with. It, therefore, fits REM700 compatible stocks, bases, and triggers.
This being the case, it gives a perfect platform to allow any shooter the ability to customize their rifle with all kinds of compatible accessories already on the market. The magazine is a single stack .22LR mag that is built within the same dimensions as a standard short action AICS mag.
With the growing popularity of long-range shooting, this gun allows shooters to practice their disciplines at a more affordable price and in areas where longer ranges may not be available.
Bergara is known for its extremely accurate barrels and rifles. With this new model, the .22LR shooter is sure to be pleased with Bergara’s latest offering.

What do you think of Bergara’s new rifle? Personally, I just wish I had more time to practice, and training – or even competing – with .22LR is a great idea in almost every aspect (including money).
