Launching 2023: Bergara B14 Wilderness Ridge Carbon Rifle

Bergara quality at a family-friendly price? Yes, please!

posted on February 2, 2023

Bergara is an absolute legend among hunters with a taste for true sub-MOA performance, and Bergara barrels are known as the best of the best. So it's no wonder that Bergara's new B14 Wilderness Ridge Carbon Rifle, with its carbon-fiber barrel, made so many waves at the 2023 SHOT Show. The company touts pure performance with real-world feature sets like fluted bolts, specialized coatings and stock options that can withstand the rugged and unforgiving wilderness, while blending into the elements.

The No. 6 carbon fiber barrel with 410 stainless is equipped with a threaded 5/8-24 Omni muzzle brake, in (20, 22 or 24 inches, depending on the caliber). Features include a spring-loaded ejector, side-mounted bolt sto, and a fluted 4140 chromoly steel one-piece-bolt body with the action finished in a Sniper Gray Cerakote. There's also a side-mounted bolt stop and a 90-degree bolt throw angle. The two-position safety is part of the trigger assembly which allows the rifle to be unloaded while the safety is engaged.

The Wilderness Carbon Ridge comes with a sub-moa guarantee and is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Win. and .300 Win. Mag., giving it an unloaded weight of 6.4 pounds. Best of all? The MSRP starts at $1,599.
