Bergara B14-R Rimfire .22 LR custom project
The Bergara B-14r is a popular rifle among hunting and shooting enthusiasts, known for its accuracy and versatility. However, even the best rifles can be improved to take its performance to the next level. Here's some more details of this amazing Bergara B-14r rimfire custom project.
Bergara B-14 R .22 LR Trainer overview
The Bergara B14-R Rimfire Trainer is a high-quality 22LR rifle that is designed for training and target shooting. This rifle is built on the same platform as the popular B14 hunting and long-range rifle (and most notably, it’s built on a Remington 700 footprint and works with the massive array of aftermarket R700), but with a few key differences that make it well-suited for the specific needs of rimfire shooters.
One of the most notable features of the B14-R is its barrel. The barrel is made from 4140 chrome moly steel and is button-rifled for increased accuracy. It is also fluted to reduce weight and improve heat dissipation. The barrel is 18 inches in length, which is a good balance of accuracy and maneuverability.
The action of the B14-R is also noteworthy. It is built on Bergara's B-14 action, which is designed to be smooth and reliable. The action is machined from bar stock steel and is fitted with a two-position safety. The bolt is fluted for weight reduction and to help with cleaning.
In general, the .22 LR rifle has seen a significant increase in popularity in recent years. This is due to a combination of factors, including the low cost of ammunition and the ability to use the rifle for a variety of purposes such as hunting small game, target shooting, and even pest control. Additionally, the .22 LR is known for being a relatively low-recoil and low-noise option, making it a great choice for beginners and those who may have difficulty handling larger firearms.
As a result, many manufacturers (including Bergara) have begun to produce a wide range of .22 LR rifles, catering to a diverse group of shooters with different needs and preferences.

WHY you should UPGRAde your b-14r
Here are just a few reasons why you should consider upgrading your B-14r.
Enhanced Accuracy: Upgrades such as a new barrel, trigger, or muzzle brake can significantly improve the accuracy of your B14R. A new barrel can provide a tighter fit between the bullet and the chamber, reducing the potential for bullet deformation and improving accuracy. A new trigger can provide a smoother and more consistent trigger pull, making it easier to shoot accurately. A muzzle brake can help reduce recoil, allowing you to shoot more comfortably and accurately.
Increased Durability: Upgrades such as a new stock, barrel, or bolt can make your B14R more durable and resistant to wear and tear. A new stock can provide a more ergonomic grip, making it more comfortable to shoot and reducing the chance of injury. A new barrel can provide a longer lifespan and maintain accuracy. A new bolt can make the action smoother, easier to operate, and increase the lifespan of the rifle.
Personalization: Upgrading your B14R allows you to personalize your rifle to suit your specific needs and preferences. Whether you want to add a new scope, a new sling, or a new stock, upgrading your B14R gives you the opportunity to make it truly your own.
Increased Resale Value: Upgrading your B14R can also increase its resale value. If you decide to sell your rifle in the future, a rifle that has been upgraded with high-quality parts and accessories is likely to fetch a higher price than one that has not.
