The Premier Series is built in the US. The rifle uses Bergara’s Premium 416 stainless steel barrels which are made in Bergara, Spain. Then, at the Bergara USA factory, the barrel receives a Cerakote finish. Bergara’s Premier Action is made in the US by Bergara USA. 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, the bolt handle, and 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 in the LRP Elite rifle 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 Ridgeback Rifle comes perfectly outfitted in a hand laid fiberglass stock with an adjustable cheek rest. The Ridgeback is the first composite stock to fully support the M-LOK system. The RidgeBack comes standard with a 5 round AICS style magazine (7 round mag: 6.5 PRC) and offers three barrel lengths, 20, 24, and 26. All Premier Series rifles are guaranteed to produce sub-MOA groups with factory match grade ammunition.
Available in: 6mm Creedmoor, 26 Nosler, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 300WM & 300PRC.
