While this bolt handle first catches the eye because of the knurling at the top, aesthetic appeal comes second to its other design features. With Bergara B14 Rimfire specs and 17-4 Stainless Steel construction, this bolt handle works like a dream.
Bergara B14 Vs. Tikka T1X: Adjustable Bolt Handles
The Bergara B14 requires a different thread pitch than the Tikka T1X. To meet the criteria, we adjusted this bolt handle pitch to match it.
Bend Angle of the Bolt Handle
The Bergara B14 bolt handle naturally lays closer to the trigger, which means the angle of the bend in the handle needed adjusting. As a result, the bend in this bolt handle isn't as far back as the original.
Number of Handle Pieces
The last difference between our Bergara B14 and Tikka T1X adjustable bolt handles are the number of pieces in the bolt handle. Unlike our first version, this bolt handle has two instead of three parts.
We took the adaptor out of this version. This change helps improve the simplicity and function of the bolt handle.
Why a Shooter Would Want an Adjustable Bolt Handle For Their Bergara
While the natural position of the stock bolt handle on the Bergara affords good positioning, upgrading to our adjustable bolt handle provides a couple of benefits. These advantages include improved speed and consistency of groupings. When combined, these improvements make a drastic difference in the shooter's overall performance.
The Need For Speed
The adjustability of this handle makes it possible for the shooter to make minor adjustments to the bolt knob position. When a bolt handle can adjust to the profile of the shooter, they can grasp the bolt knob with ease.
This improvement makes racking the bolt a fluid motion, which shortens the intervals in between shots. When in a timed station at a competition, those few precious seconds could mean another hit before having to move on to the next station.
Improving Accuracy and Consistency
Because the bolt handle can adjust to the shooter's preference, the gun doesn't move around as much when racking the bolt. The less the gun moves, the better, because it is more likely that the next shot will be close to the last, or the shooter can quickly adjust and take the shot without looking away from the scope.

Impressed w quality. Very easy to install and adjust. Fixed the scope clearance issue and made bolt much easier to manipulate.
Short Knob Works Best

I installed mine on my new Bergara B-14R along with the Anarchy Outdoors swept handle. The red along with the red Elftmann 700 trigger/safety is an awesome combination. The longer knob would have been too long and prevented easy access to the trigger once the bolt is closed. Smooth to the touch and very stylish.
