Bergara BXR .22 LR Rifle
New .22 LR Rifle with 10/22 styling
Bergara Rifles introduced a new semi-automatic .22 LR, the Bergara BXR. This new rifle features the custom quality Bergara is known for without the high price of custom.
The BXR .22LR has many features of a 10/22 based rifle, like the ability to use a 10 round rotary-style magazine that is 10/22 compatible. It accepts a 10/22 trigger group as well as a stock that uses a 10/22 footprint. However, there are features on the BXR that are not available from Ruger.
These features include an integral 30 MOA Picatinny rail atop the black Cerakoted receiver. It also includes Bergara’s proprietary stock with removable/replaceable spacers to adjust the stock length. The base model features a 4140 CrMo fluted steel barrel with a Cerakote finish, with a stock that is green with a black fleck and weighs 5.25lbs. The upgraded BXR comes with a carbon fiber barrel, a black stock with a grey fleck that weighs 4.75lbs. Both models have 1/2×28 threaded barrels.
Bergara has managed to produce a 10/22 style rifle with loads of features and a great price. They are coming in at $565 for the base model or $659 for the upgraded version with the carbon fiber barrel.
