    Anybody have one of these? How are they I'm seriously thinking about one. I was thinking about getting a savage stealth but I'm thinking about going with the bergara instead. The stock seems nice how are the triggers? Are the barrels pretty nice, anybody scope a barrel?

    I've handled one several times, but haven't shot one. That's the nicest plastic stock I've ever seen, and I really wish someone would duplicate it in a better material.

    I may buy one anyway, worth the risk if you ask me.

    I was at the range a couple of days ago and a guy was running some test with Factory ammo. He had five different boxes of ammo and all of them shot under a inch at a 100 yards. Seem to shoot the Hornady eld-x the best.

    Just handling it, they are. Not sure about accuracy but first impressions were awesome.

    I looked one over very closely at the range last Saturday and was very impressed. The trigger was almost as good as a Timney 510. The action felt like a trued Remmy, and the accuracy was about .5 MOA with hand loads. The stock was very impressive and the weight was a hair under 10 pounds. Assessing it side by side with my three customs ranging in cost from $2,500-4,000 there wasn't much to be sad about for the Bergara owner. The threads on the muzzle were absolutely perfectly cut too. The bottom metal and magazine fit perfectly and it functioned as good as a rifle can. Overall, It's a great rifle. About the only thing that a perfectionist would want to improve upon in the finish, cerekote ect, the matte finish is nicer than most any other brand though. I would not hesitate to buy one of these with confidence.

    This rifle does look well done. What’s the street price you guys are seeing? Is 22 inches enough pipe for the 6.5 Creedmoor? Thanks!

    At my over priced gunshop they were running about $1050. A Remington 700 SPS there is $650 for comparison.
