New Bergara BMR Steel rimfire rifle – review

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

The price is very competitive, with the Steel version selling for £560. It comes in three calibres: .22LR, .17HMR and .22WMR. This one is the .22LR, with an 18-inch barrel.

For testing purposes it’s been set up with a Meopta scope on the Picatinny rail, and a Hausken moderator on the standard 1/2 in x 28 thread.

Charlie Taylor from RUAG talks us through the rifle’s features. “It has a textured stock and weighs around 5.5 lbs, or 5.8 lbs in the 20-inch barrel version. The rifle comes with the Bergara Performance trigger as standard, and is supplied with two magazines, a five-shot and a ten-shot, which should appeal to hunters and pest controllers.”
