SHOT Show 2024 – Bergara introduces the new Premier MgMicro Lite bolt-action rifle, a kind of rifle ever more desired in recent years, lightweight, with a magnesium chassis and carbon fiber-wrapped barrel, and compact thanks to a folding stock
The Bergara Premier MgMicro Lite bolt-action rifle is one of the world's latest platforms of its kind currently available on the world market, starting at 5.8 lbs (2,63 kg) in weight. Conceived for long-range shooting competition and for those hunting specialties that require rifles light enough to be carried all-day long on harsh terrains and yet accurate and powerful enough to perform long-range precision takedowns (think mountain hunting), the Premier MgMicro Lite rifle offers a plethora of top-notch features.
Among those is definitely the XLR magnesium ATOM chassis it's built around. The carbon-fiber side-folding buttstock features an adjustable cheek rest, limb-saver recoil pad, and M-LOK slots, providing a robust yet minimalistic solution for weight-conscious scenarios. The smoke carbon grip, among the lightest ever produced, blends comfort with style in an ambidextrous, flat-top AR design.
Other features of the Premier MgMicro Lite rifle include Bergara's own CURE 18-inch, No.6 barrel boasting the Company's proprietary unidirectional center-wrap high modulus carbon fiber wrapping system for directional accuracy, a TriggerTech trigger, and an AICS-compatible 5-rounds detachable polymer magazine. The Bergara Premier MgMicro Lite rifle is available in .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, and 6.5 PRC.
MSRP for the Bergara Premier MgMicro Lite bolt-action rifle on the US market starts at $3,099: a price point that clearly shows that even in a country like the United States of America, the once widespread dogma according to which bolt-action hunting rifles sell only if priced at 300 bucks, is not anymore valid.
