Bergara B-14 Squared Crest

Bergara's new B-14 Squared Crest Rifle should get a few looks for mountain hunting and demanding conditions. It has a carbon-fiber monocoque stock, with a carbon fiber spine throughout the stock for greater rigidity and strength. The fluted 4140 CrMo steel barrel comes in 22- and 20-inch lengths. Other features include a cone-shaped bolt nose ejector, sliding extractor, 90-degree bolt throw, AICS-compatible detachable magazine, Sniper Grey Cerakote and adjustable Bergara Performance Trigger.

This technology, along with LOP spacers, sets a new standard in being the best choice for carbon stocks.
  • BERGARA PRECISION BARREL: Bergara’s reputation is based on the best drilling, honing, and rifling processes that guarantee sub-MOA precision. The CREST barrel consists of 4140 CrMo steel fluted barrel finished in Sniper Grey Cerakote. The muzzle is threaded 5/8-24 and includes a Bergara Omni Muzzle Brake.
