Re: cooper arms

I bought a Cooper Varminter in 6BR two years ago when they came out. It has a 1-8" twist, and handles the 105 gr. Hornady A Max very well. But I have not shot it a lot. I have a Leupold 6.5-20 on top, and intend to hunt ground hogs with it this summer. The fit and finish is perfect. You can order various options; check their web site. Mine did not come with sling swivel studs. I found a nickel plated set and had a smith install them.

Re: cooper arms

I bought a Cooper right after they went in business in Stephensville, MT in the early 90's. The guys that started the company were all ex-Kimber people from Oregon. Very impressive work and accuracy. The one I have is a Model 22 Classic Custom in 243. It shoots as advertised with sub 1/2 groups, but I've only shot it maybe 30 times in 20 years. Biggest problem is the fit, bluing, metalwork and particularly the hand checkered walnut stock is so perfect that it became a safe queen. I really don't know why I've kept it this long, but it is a fine piece of outstanding gunsmithing.

Re: cooper arms

I bought an M21 in 223 for my son bought 5yrs ago, and dressed it with a custom shop Mk4 scope, Harris bipod, and a rear accushot monopod. Killed a bunch of groundhogs with it. Killed a ton of targets..
Well my son doesn't shoot much,, but hell, I can't put it down!

Such a nice gun overall

Re: cooper arms

I have a Cooper in .17 M4; is a GREAT piece of hardware. Would like another but for the price i have been using customs actions for my recent builds. If you want some great classic wood, they are hard to beat for "semi-production" items.

The company got some bad press when the President supported Obama during the last campaign. Each can make up their own mind on that data point.

Re: cooper arms

I must agree with the above post---re-sale might not be that great.

Re: cooper arms

Cooper makes some extreamly good guns, many will shoot one hole at 200 yards. Probably why Best of the West is going with Cooper!
