Bergara combines a nimble, sporter-style stock with a precision, No. 5 contour barrel in the B-14 Ridge. Like all B-14 rifles, which are made at the Bergara factory in Spain, the action in the Ridge has a two-lug bolt with a sliding-plate extractor and a coned nose for smooth feeding.
If you haven’t yet heard of Bergara, it's time to start paying attention. Granted, the company has been making rifles for only about three years, but its growth during that time has been nothing short of phenomenal. Let’s use the B-14 Timber as an example.
Bergara, the vaunted Spanish barrel maker, now produces three full-fledged rifle lines. Its least expensive, the Performance line, features two rifles: the B14 Hunter (synthetic) and B14 Timber. These rifles are designed by American hunters and shoot and feel like rifles that cost much more. For more information, check out the video embedded above.
Last year, vaunted Spanish barrel maker announced that it'd be producing full-fledged performance rifles. The announcement caught the eye of more than a few American hunters, who have taken to the company's B-14 Timber and B-14 Hunter with ease. For 2016 there'll be another option: the B-14 Woodsman.
