Hey guys! Just had to chime in with my 2 cents! I own 2 .204's one is a CZ 527 Varmint and the other is a Cooper Model 21. Both shoot incredibly well. The Cooper is under .25" 5 shot group at 100 yards, and the CZ is a bit over .25" at 100 yards with a 5 shot group. Everytime I shoot the Cooper it makes me smile. Which is why i now own 3 Coopers haha. And it is definitely cheaper than a custom gun. Cooper cost about 1400, custom rifle
was around 3000. I see both points of this topic, some say to just get a Cooper because it's worth the money (and it is), and others say because of the economy it is a bit tough to spend an extra $700. Once again, I agree with both sides here. However, the Cooper is somethin you can always cherish. And they aren't going to lose value either. Either way, Happy Shooting!
