New Bergara BMR Carbon rimfire rifle – review

RUAG have introduced two new rimfire models to the UK – the Bergara BMR. This one is the Carbon model; there’s also a Steel model.

This rifle is very lightweight, at just 5 lbs with the 18-inch barrel. It’s competitively priced too, at £640 retail. It comes in three calibres: .22LR, .17HMR and .22WMR.

Charlie Taylor from RUAG talks us through the rifle’s features. “It has the Bergara Performance trigger as standard, which is compatible with the Remington 700 so you can swap it out if you want.”

“The rifle is supplied with two magazines, a five-shot and a ten-shot, which should appeal to hunters and pest controllers.”

“Both the Carbon and the Steel version come with a Picatinny rail, and the barrel has a standard 1/2 in x 28 thread to accept a moderator such as RUAG’s Hausken.”
