Fixed two-piece ring mounts cannot be detached from a rifle without the use of tools. They come at an affordable price and offer high reliability. Generally, they are not difficult to install on a rifle. Fixed means that the user cannot quickly detach and therefore switch scopes, which limits the usability of the rifle. Fixed ring mounts for Bergara B14 are mostly produced in two fashions. A) direct rings and B) advanced two part rings with separated base part, which is attached to Bergara B14's receiver and ring which is attached to the base part. Simple rings are cheaper and easier to manufacture, while more advanced rings with separated ring and base part are more expensive, but usually offer a possibility to adjust scope's windage on the mount itself. Some manufacturers also produce one-piece Monoblock mounts for Bergara B14.

When talking about Detachable Mounting options, this means these mounts are removable without tools or other instruments, additionally you can remove them simply with the use of bare hands. Usually, these mounts don't offer full repeatability. These mounting options offer great advantage in terms of transport. Riflescope and rifle can be transported individually. When reattaching the scope on the rifle, point of impact shifts up to 10 cm on 100 m. Usually, Detachable Mounting options are designated as QR (quick release) or QD (quick detachable) abbreviations.
Detachable Rings mounts are designed with simple metal levers, which are used for quick remove from the rifle. These mounts are attached to Bergara B14's receiver. Final position of the levers can usually be switched without the change of the clamping force. This offers a posibillity to adjust the position of the levers for a better visual appeal (both levers pointing in the same direction), once the mount is positioned and fixed on the rifle's receiver. Additionally, these mounts are designed with recoil groove and recoil lug. Some Detachable Ring Mounts for example EAW Mounts, offer windage adjustment. Usually, Detachable Mounting options are designated as QR (quick release) or QD (quick detachable) abbreviations.
Detachable Scope Rail mounts are composed of two-parts. Additionally, these mounts are designed with recoil groove and recoil log. Lower part of the mount clamps on the Dovetail, while the upper part clamps on scope rail. There are four different Scope Rail mounts available. Which are: LM rail, Zeiss ZM/VM rail, Swarovski SR rail and S&B Convex rail. Ordinarily, they are designed with windage adjustment incorporated in their design and are commonly more expensive. Usually, Detachable Mounting options are designated as QR (quick release) or QD (quick detachable) abbreviations.
Repeatable mounts are the most sophisticated mounts available and their main purpose is the removal of the telescopic sight from the rifle and mount it back again without the need of zeroing it all over. Repeatable detachable mounts are basically the same as detachable ring or scope rail mounts, with a difference regarding mounting mechanism. Repeatable detachable mounts are designed with a precise clamping mechanism, which requires identical hand clamping force for every attachment. Additionally, the same position of the mount is a guarantee. Usually, Detachable Mounting options are designated as QR (quick release) or QD (quick detachable) abbreviations.

A special kind of repeatable mounts are pivot mounts, also known as swing mounts. They offer 100 % repeatability and can be quickly and simply detached and reattached with the use of levers, buttons and screws, with no tools required. Pivot mounts are extremely durable, lightweight, compact and elegant. Their drawback is perhaps their price, which is considerably higher than the price of fixed mounts with rings and other mounting options. The installation on the rifle should be done by a skilled gunsmith. Most of the times, pivot mounts are higher than 14 mm.
Pivot ring mounts guarantee 100 % repeatability and are available either as one-piece or two-piece versions. They allow simple installation of multiple riflescopes or red dot sights on a single rifle with great amount of interchangeability.
Pivot rail mounts are available in either one-piece or two-piece versions. They allow simple installation of multiple riflescopes or red dot sights on a single rifle with a great amount of interchangeability and 100 % repeatability. These mounts are almost the same as pivot mounts with rings but are intended for mounting of scopes with Zeiss ZM/VM rail, Swarovski SR rail, S&B Convex rail or traditional LM rail. Such setup tends to be a bit higher than with ring mounting, but this is usually not a problem for scopes with 50 or 56 mm objective lens. One-Piece Pivot mounts for rails clamp on the rail of the scope on almost it's entire length and provide very reliable mounting solution.
The Picatinny rail is on a good way of becoming a global standard for mounting since it was invented in 1995. Developed on the Weaver template, the biggest advantage of the Picatinny rail is the usage across its entire length, unlike Weaver which has predesignated slots for mounting, limiting its usability and versatility. Ease of use and interchangeability are also its assets. Picatinny has slots evenly placed, namely exactly 5.23 mm one from the other and 3 mm deep. Because of this, the mounting is identical on all firearms using the Picatinny standard. Picatinny rails are usually available with 0 MOA or 20 MOA inclinations.Picatinny rail can accommodate all types of mounts, also those designed for Weaver standard. Full size mounts of this type are designed for mounting of modern optics for example thermal or digital.
The Docter Sight is a reflex sight with an array of application options. It is ideal for shotguns and for use on driven hunts. It can also be used on handguns, rifles and various other platforms. There are three availiable Docter sight mounting solutions. Which are: Repeatable, Fixed and Detachable. We should mention that Detachable Docter sights mounts require a new zeroing everytime you reattach it to the rifle. Repeatable mounts hold a constant zero. Usually, Detachable Mounting options are designated as QR (quick release) or QD (quick detachable) abbreviations.
