Cooper Model 52

Has anyone seen a Cooper model 52 with the cerakote and Bell and Carlson stock that Cooper is putting out? I have my eye on a 6.5x284. Looks great on the internet and the shop is a few hours away. Trying to decide if its worth the drive and the money they want for the gun.... anybody seen/shot one?
Thanks

Re: Cooper Model 52

I currently have a Cooper M52 Excalibur 6.5x284 Norma on order. I ordered a 26in stainless barrel and action. The action, bolt, and bottom mettal will be cerakoted in matte black. I requested that the barrel is not coated because I like the look of the stainless barrel next to the dark action.

I personally have not held one, but have looked at one through a display case. All of the attendents were busy and it was a couple of minutes until closing. However, I did not need to hold it to see the quality.

I purchased a Leupold VX-3 6.5x20x50 with TMR reticle and Ken Farrel rail mount. The rings will come later...probably KF as well. Hope this helps.

Re: Cooper Model 52

I have handled a couple of Coopers with the B&C stock. They look and feel very well. You are basically getting a custom grade rifle for a little less than custom prices. They are guaranteed to shoot .5 MOA like most customs and usually shoot a little better like most customs.

I would also like to get a Cooper in 6.5x284. If I do I'll get it in an 8 twist 26" barrel.

I also ordered an 8 twist barrel. I believe that is a standard option for the 6.5x284.
