Bergara has announced its B-14 Squared Crest Rifle. Designed for mountain hunting adventures, the Crest is an ultralight high-performance rifle anchored by a 100-percent carbon-fiber monocoque stock, with a carbon-fiber spine throughout for greater rigidity and strength. Bergara promises this new stock, combined with the B-14 action and proprietary barrel, blends all the advantages of the B-14 series into something unique, hence the moniker: "B-14 Squared."
The Crest, finished in Sniper Grey Cerakote, consists of a fluted 4140 CrMo steel barrel in 20- or 22-inches, depending on the caliber. The muzzle is threaded to 5/8-24 TPI and includes a Bergara Omni muzzle brake. Other features include a 90-degree bolt throw; a cone-shaped bolt nose ejector; a sliding extractor; and an AICS compatible detachable magazine. The trigger is an adjustable Bergara Performance Trigger with a two-position safety allowing the rifle to be unloaded while in the safe position. The unloaded weight is a mere 6.9 pounds.
For more information on the Crest, which guarantees sub-MOA precision and is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Winchester, and .300 Winchester Magnum, check out bergarausa.com. MSRP: $1999
