Bergara recently announced its new B-14R, a .22LR built on a full-scale Remington 700 footprint, is now shipping.

A complement to the company’s successful B-14 line of bolt-action rifles, the B-14R (Rimfire) has all the features consumers who want a precision “trainer” are looking for including a 90 lift and longer bolt-throw, replicating the same feel of a REM700 platform along with the ability to use that huge array of compatible parts.

“Because the B-14R is based on a full-size receiver design, it also provides a perfect platform to allow any shooter the ability to customize their rifle with all kinds of compatible accessories already in the market,” said Bergara in a statement.
