The Approach is one of the Bergara Premier Series, which is assembled on a custom basis. It’s a hunting rifle, and for a sporter, it’s a heavy gun. The standard barrel taper is 5½ (compared to 1, 2, or 3 for factory rifles), and the weight, in 6.5 Creedmoor, is just under 9 pounds. At the muzzle is a Sandman-S suppressor, which is sold by Dead Air Armament. The Sandman is just under 7 inches long and weighs 18.5 ounces. It reduces the report of the Creedmoor to about the level of a .22 WMR, and stifles the recoil to the point where you can see the fur part, as they say.
