Nearly every major arms maker throughout the world wars, and beyond, were commissioned to modify existing platforms, or create new ones to fire the .22 Long Rifle cartridge as a training platform for cadets. With ammunition readily available and inexpensive, the skills gained from employing such rifle are invaluable. Enter Bergara USA and its long-range competition-worthy B-14 R, a Remington Model 700 clone purpose-built for use with .22 Long Rifle ammunition.

Bergara provides its heavy contour, 18” 4140 steel barrel with rifling twisted to 1 turn in 16”. The barrel is threaded 1/2×28 t.p.i. to accommodate accessories such as direct-mount sound suppressors. The receiver provides optic-mounting holes drilled-and-tapped for 6-48 screws and capable with Remington Model 700 optic bases and Picatinny rail sections.

The B-14 R bolt-action rifle features a two-lug bolt with floating bolt head. Attached at the user end is a large, tactical-style knob with knurled bands to ensure positive purchase with the shooter’s hand during fast bolt manipulations. At the rear of the bolt is a cocked-pin indicator.

Given the training rifle’s cross-compatibility with Remington Model 700 rifles, a two-position safety is found mounted to the right side fo the receiver tang. A Remington-style trigger is also provided. The rifle’s bottom metal is sculpted to provide use of AICS-pattern magazines for Remington Model 700 rifles—a polymer 10-round unit designed for .22 LR is utilized to feed the B-14 R.

Bergara employs its HMR molded-polymer stock with an integral aluminum mini-chassis for consistent placement of the barreled action within. The HMR stock includes an adjustable cheekpiece and spacers to modify the rifle’s length of pull to suit myriad-size operators. In addition, molded-in QD sockets and standard sling swivels are included to accommodate accessories for use in dynamic target-engagement and hunting scenarios.
