What caliber and style did you order? I ordered an Excalibur with the synthetic stock. I am surprised that you haven't received it yet. What is the last time you checked with them and what did they say?

Re: Cooper Model 52

I have had my cooper m52 Excalibur 6.5x284 for about 6 months and love it. It consistently shoots 1/4-1/2 minute groups out to 800 yards. Haven't shot it any further yet. Great trigger, easy to clean and point of impact varies very little hot or cold foul shot or not. It's a joy to shoot. Mine is not coated but as far ar the rifle goes I believe they are worth every penny.

Re: Cooper Model 52

I have owned the 520, which I believe is the repeater version, for a few years in 6.5x284. It's the most accurate rifle I have ever owned. It has about 500 rounds through it and consistently shoots .25MOA or better measured at 500 yards. It has. 1:8 twist, cerrakote, #6, 26" barrel, synthetic stock w/ rollover cheekpiece, and brake. I have taken a couple of dozen deer, antelope, and coyotes between 600 and 1100 yards with this rifle It's a dream to shoot. I shoot 140 Berger VLD's at 2965 FPS. I have a Huskemaw 5x20 mounted on it.

I ordered a Jackson Hunter in 7mm-08 Rem. I specified a 13.5" LOP and that's the hold up. Why it would take so long to shorten a synthetic stock 1/4" is beyond me. Cooper finally shortened it themselves but then had to send it back to Bell & Carlson to be painted. That's where we are now!
