Bergara Custom Rifle Contest Closing on Oct. 31

posted on October 14, 2014

Earlier this year, Bergara Custom Rifles has teamed up with Realtree and the NRA to give away one of its Sport Hunter custom rifles. The final deadline to register for your chance to win it is approaching, however: The contest closes on Oct. 31, 2014.

Built by Bergara’s lead gun builder, retired Marine Corp Master Sergeant Dan Hanus, the rifle is a Bergara Sport Hunter in .308. Prior to joining Bergara, the 22-year veteran Hanus was stationed at Quantico, Virginia, where he served as the Production Chief & Chief Instructor for the Marine Corps Precision Weapons Section.

“Bergara is currently best known for its barrels, as we are an original equipment supplier to several of the top rifle brands in the world,” Hanus said. “The purpose of this promotion is really just to get the word out on our custom rifle business. When shooters visit our website to enter the contest we hope that they will also take a few minutes to learn about our great rifles.”

The customized Bergara Sport Hunter in .308 features a precision Bergara Action by Stiller, Nitride treated Bergara barrel, Timney trigger and a McMillan Hunter stock dipped in Realtree Max-1 camo.

Interested parties can enter or by following the instructions provided on the Bergara USA Facebook page.
