Lawrenceville, Ga. (January 2017) –Bergara Rifles, a division of BPI Outdoors, is pleased to announce its Bergara LRP Elite has won TheTruthAboutGuns.Com’s Reader’s Choice Award for the best new rifle of 2016.

“We think these awards are meaningful because our editorial staff have nothing to do with them beyond tabulating (reader’s) votes. Manufacturers can’t pay to play here. They just have to make great new products and let the results speak for themselves,” said Tyler Kee, writer for

In addition to winning the Reader’s Choice Award, the Bergara LRP Elite received a rare perfect five out of five stars in its performance review. Tyler Kee, the reviewer, had this to say about the rifle, “It should come as no surprise that their LRP Elite is an absolute hammer … an out-of-the box tack driver. Beyond that, the Bergara is miles ahead of the rest of the factory options when it comes to final fit and finish … the moving pieces slid together and locked up like the pieces in a finely-built German sedan.”

The award was presented to Bergara by at the 2017 SHOT Show where it was proudly displayed in its booth for the duration of the show.
