Lawrenceville, GA – Bergara has officially begun shipping its hot new HMR Pro Rifle to the trade. After the company introducing the new model at the 2018 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, customers and dealers have been anxiously awaiting their arrival. Nate Treadaway, CEO of BPI Outdoors stated, “In my 19 years of working in the industry, I have never been questioned so frequently about the arrival date of a new product, and I absolutely love seeing that enthusiasm!” Treadaway continues, “I believe that the rifle fills a much needed niche for high-performance at a reasonable price point and the initial excitement certainly seems to substantiate this.”
The new Premier Series HMR Pro is essentially an upgraded “pro level” version of the B-14 Series HMR. Both rifles share the same injection molded, internal aluminum chassis stock, giving them a similar look and functional appeal, but that’s really where the similarities end, as the Premier HMR Pro has the many Premier Series component upgrades that the B-14 Series HMR doesn’t offer.
These upgrades include our new stainless steel Bergara Premier Action, matched with a 416 stainless steel Bergara Barrel, both hand painted in Cerakote™ for extra protection. Our action incorporates a floating bolt head design, as well as a quick detach firing pin access, allowing the shooter to pull the entire firing pin mechanism with only a 1⁄4 turn. It accepts Remington 700 compatible bases using 8×40 screws. Standard AICS Magazines are also compatible. Also standard is a TriggerTech™ trigger, featuring Frictionless Release Technology™.
By combining all this with a stock design that insures rigidity, straightness, and fully floats the Bergara Barrel, the HMR Pro provides incredible “out-of-the-box” accuracy. As every serious shooter knows, accuracy is all about removing variables, thus allowing the rifle and the shooter to perform at their very best. The HMR Pro stock eliminates one of those variables by providing an adjustable length of pull and cheek/comb height adjustment, allowing each shooter, of any size, to adjust the rifle to fit their natural point of aim. The HMR Pro stock also offers QD flush cup mounts located on both sides, plus standard sling swivels. Two swivels are located in front, and one in the rear. With a 3” spread between the swivels in the front, they can easily be removed and replaced with an aftermarket Picatinny rail if desired. To finish it all off, the Premier HMR Pro stock is painted black with silver flecking for texture.
Assembled at Bergara’s USA headquarters, in Lawrenceville, GA, each HMR Pro is sub- MOA accuracy verified by our own staff (test target included) and is therefore ready for the field, whether that’s hunting a big game trophy, or competing in a long-range match.
