“The new MgLite was my weapon of choice for my mountain goat hunt this fall in Alaska. I spent the summer preparing for my fall season with this rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC. We got it set up shooting Hornady Precision Hunter ammunition with a Vortex Razor scope and had no problem shooting 700+ yards the first day.
I do not spend a lot of time shooting rifles, so it is important to me to feel comfortable with the cheekpiece height, length of pull, and crispness of the trigger. Oftentimes, I feel that chassis rifles are clunky and do not feel like the hunting rifles I grew up shooting. However, this XLR chassis is easily adjustable to fit your build and provided me with a natural feel when I had to take a quick shot at my mountain goat this fall.

Having a foldable rifle stock for travel is a huge win for me. This rifle easily fits in my shorter bow case, which I prefer to travel with. It is lightweight but solid when the moment of truth comes. I can’t say enough good things about this new Bergara system. If you’re looking for a chassis type foldable rifle, make sure to give this sexy rifle a shot.” – Jessica Byers, Marketing & PR Manager
