You are correct MarkCO, my mistake. But he did have a Bergara, and whatever he had, he wanted $2500 for it. Like I said, at that price I stopped paying attention to it. Of course, it was at a gun show.Street price is looking to be in the 1400 to 1450 range, and I doubt a dealer had one at $2500 for anyone to touch since only the few prototypes are out. First production ones won't be ready until end of Feb to beginning of March. Several LGS have taken orders for them from $1420 to $1550.
Premier action (floating bolt head) and barrel, which is stainless instead of Cro-Mo, and Cerakoted. Hand lapped and built in the USA instead of Spain like the B-14s. The feedramp is different to allow loading longer (which has been an issue with some mags and some bullets in the B-14 version). It also has a Trigger Tech trigger and comes in more calibers (.223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., 6 mm Creedmoor, 6.5 mm Creedmoor and .308 Win) with a 2" longer barrel. Fluted bolt and comes with an optics mount rail (although I have not seen that in the photos). Oh, and the firing pin has been changed to allow use of small rifle primer brass (Lapua) without issue.
Local Gun Store. The one I use only has one distributor that carries Bergara and has a "notify me" on one, but they won't let them actually pre-order it, so I am first on his list, but he would not take my money until he actually gets on on the way.Anyone know where I could preorder one? Love the original but would really like the added 2" on the barrel as well as a couple other features the pro has.
I'm in Canada, so we're always a little bit late to the party for new guns. I've seen some MSRPs thrown around for these but what are the street prices on them?Pricing is out now and some shops are taking pre-orders. Just depends on who your LGS is set up with as far as distributors.
BMP was competition with it. Will be interesting to see if they do the same with next years model of it. Apples and oranges with this one. I'd say its a step above the -A3. Especially for the money. And if were throwing LGS prices, my local has the -A3 at $2100. NOPE, just couldn't. So BMP it was, and I'm happy with the rifle so far.at $1500 are these actually competition for a Tikka T3x A1?..
Let us know how it shoots!Got mine in today. Going to put some stuff on it. Doubt I can shoot it today.
First impressions: Looks sweet. Nice trigger. Bolt is silky smooth.
Comes in a soft case and the zipper was broke on mine.
Other than that, I’m excited to try it out. Came with a 3 shot group of .375 inches.
I had my dealer put order in. From my understanding, he was basically on a “notify me” status. So basically, when one became available they would notify him and ask if he still wanted it or not and then ship out if so.Just looked, its looking like Zander's sporting goods is out of stock.
Any accuracy tests on these yet? I cannot seem to find them in stock anywhere if someone has a lead on them still.
Thank you and I’m planning on pushing it out just as soon as I can. Not much free time right now. My sergeant just retired and our department is short handed right now so lots of 12 and 16 hour shifts lolNice, especially with factory ammo, thanks for posting! If you get back out I'm sure we'd all love to see more of what she can do.
Now the trick is just finding one in stock....
Anyone else test theirs yet?
