NEW from Bergara comes three new rifles featuring carbon fiber! Introducing the B-14 HMR Carbon, Ridge Carbon, and B-142 Crest!

Starting at $1,600 MSRP for the Ridge, $1,850 for the HMR, and $2,000 for the Crest these new rifles all feature carbon fiber in the stock or barrel. 

For the Ridge, we have a Bergara B-14 action paired with a No. 6 Carbon Fiber barrel available in .308 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, or 300 Win Mag. Weight starts at 6.5 lbs.

The B-14 HMR Carbon has the same B-14 action and No. 6 CF barrel but uses the standard HMR stock with an internal mini-chassis. Offered in the same caliber options as the Ridge but with a starting weight of 7.5 lbs.

The Crest is a new top-of-the-line rifle from Bergara, and things get interesting here. While the action is the same B-14, this features a 4140 CrMo Steel barrel with heavy fluting, and a 100% carbon fiber stock with a carbon spine. From Bergara:


This new 100% carbon fiber stock is manufactured using CF-RTM technology, a state-of-the-art method in high demand in the automotive and aerospace industries. This manufacturing process consist of assembling dry carbon fibers by hand with an injected resin. We have incorporated a carbon spine throughout the stock providing greater rigidity and strength. This technology, along with LOP spacers, sets a new standard in being the best choice for carbon stocks.”

Caliber offerings are the same, and weight starts at 6.8 lbs.

The HMR and Crest use detachable AICS magazines while the Ridge uses an internal magazine.

All three rifles have threaded barrels and come with a Bergara Omni Muzzle Brake.

All three rifles are also guaranteed sub-MOA from Bergara.
