SHOT Show 2016: Bergara USA Debuts Long Range Precision Rifles for LE Special Teams

January 19, 2016  | 

Bergara USA, a division of Blackpowder Products Inc. (BPI Outdoors), has announced the new BPR-17 series of Long Range Precision (LRP) rifles in two models: the BPR-17 LRP Elite Rifle, and the BPR-17 LRP Rifle.

The BPR-17 LRP Rifles were designed to meet the accuracy and performance levels required by professional shooters and law enforcement operators. The BPR-17 is built with the Bergara Premier Series Short action, made from 4140CrMo steel in the USA. The fluted bolt body has a floating bolt head to ensure proper alignment in the receiver.

The Bergara 416 stainless steel barrel is finished in a matte black Cerakote. It also comes standard with a suppressor-ready Dead Air Keymount Muzzle Brake. The Bergara barrel incorporates a five-step process that is guaranteed to shoot tighter groups than any unmodified factory barrel, according to the company. Barrel lengths are 20" in the .308, 22" in the 6.5 Creedmoor, and 24" in the 6MMC Creedmoor. A Timney 517 Flat trigger, AICS detachable 5-round magazine (10-rd optional), and a 20 MOA Picatinny rail scope mount are also integral to both models.

The BPR-17 LRP comes built on a custom carbon Element chassis stock by XLR, which features an adjustable length of pull (12 to 15 inches) as well as comb height adjustment. The lightweight chassis buttstock features QD flush cups on both sides, ambidextrous cheek rest, mono-pod provision, and an enclosed design. All Bergara BPR-17 LRP Rifles offer a Sub-MOA Guarantee. This guarantee is proven with each rifle in the form of a test target showing the exact group measurement at 100 yards. MSRP for the BPR-17 LRP Rifle starts at $2,190.00.

The BPR-17 LRP Elite Rifle is built on a Mega Orias chassis with a Magpul PRS butt-stock. The Orias chassis is made from extremely lightweight 7075-T651 billet aluminum and has an ambidextrous magazine release. The PRS butt-stock is precision adjustable for both comb and height and length-of-pull without sacrificing the ruggedness necessary for extreme operational environments. The Orias Chassis features QD flush cups on both sides, ambidextrous cheek rest, hidden mono-pod provision, and an enclosed design. As standard with all Bergara Premier rifles, the Bergara BPR-17 LRP Elite Rifle offers a Sub-MOA Guarantee. This guarantee is proven with each rifle in the form of an included test target showing the exact group measurement at 100 yards. MSRP for the BPR-17 Elite starts at $2,640.00.
