Lawrenceville, Ga. –-(Ammoland.com)- Bergara Rifles, a division of BPI Outdoors, is pleased to announce its Bergara B-14 Hunting and Match Rifle (HMR) has won the Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award for 2017.
Over several days of shooting, Outdoor Life tested all of the new rifles for 2017. Drills were done to mimic practical shooting positions. The rifles were shot for accuracy off the bench and tested for reliability by being shot in a way to try and induce malfunctions. Each firearm was taken apart and inspected to ascertain the quality of manufacturing and the amount of innovation put into each firearm. The rifles were tested by a group of five independent judges and were evaluated on 10 different categories. In each of these 10 categories, each rifle was scored using a scale from 1-10. After the shooting stopped and the dust settled, the B-14 HMR came out on top.
“We’re honored that our rifle was chosen by the Outdoor Life judges as the editor’s choice. All of our rifles, and especially the HMR, combine state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, near-obsessive attention to detail and a passion for bringing our genuine and authentic personal touch to every rifle built. All of this combined allows us to create incredible rifles and my hope is that the care and the passion that each Bergara rifle is built with, will be reflected when a new owner puts one in their hands. We’re grateful and honored Outdoor Life noticed,” said Ben Fleming, VP of marketing and sales at Bergara Rifle.
The Bergara B-14 HMR is a feature-rich rifle, designed to meet the needs of hardcore hunters, precision rifle shooters, and those desiring absolute quality and accuracy. John B. Snow, Outdoor Life Shooting Editor, Presenting Bergara with Editor’s Choice award.
