There’s no longer a need to compromise performance for weight! Introducing the Premier Series MgLite, featuring an ultra-lightweight XLR Element magnesium chassis and Bergara’s proprietary CURE Carbon barrel, making this rifle the epitome of a lightweight, packable precision hunting rifle.
Think of Bergara’s Premier Series as custom quality, but with standardized features for greater efficiencies in parts production and assembly – providing near custom performance at prices that are affordable to serious shooters. In the MgLite model, Bergara’s CURE Carbon Barrel is coupled with their proprietary Bergara PREMIER action, featuring a nonrotating gas shield, coned bolt nose, and sliding plate extractor.
This action is designed as a two-lug system that features a separate floating bolt head to ensure contact with the lug abutments in the action. It also features a cone-shaped bolt nose for smooth feeding of the cartridge, and a spring-loaded sliding plate extractor located in the front of the lower locking lug. The one-piece bolt body is stainless steel with a pad at the rear to accept the threaded-in bolt handle. The bolt head, the non-rotating gas shield, and the bolt shroud are fully Nitrided for extreme durability, as well as its self-lubricating properties.
The two-position safety is part of the trigger assembly, which is a TriggerTech Frictionless Release Technology trigger. One great feature of this combination allows the bolt handle not to lock in the closed position, which in turn allows the rifle to be unloaded while in the safe position. The MgLite offers two-barrel lengths, 22″ and 24″.
The stock on the Bergara MgLite is an XLR Element 4.0 Magnesium chassis. It supports a fully free-floated barrel. The carbon fiber buttstock folds up for easy packing for any situation.
