Spot on Brian. Maybe Cooper is coming out with the Lon Horuchi Signature Model...great for taking down women holding babies. Bastard should be in Federal prison.
NOTE: I made a mistake with regards to Cooper having Lon Horuchi (Ruby Ridge sniper who killed Vicky Weaver) affiliated with them...wrong company, it's HR Precision in South Dakota.
Jim Cooper of Cooper Rifle was the person who was a heavy contributor to the anit-gun Barrack Obama and the Democrats. Sorry, no Cooper rifle will ever sit in my safe.
Gene? did you have trouble getting the bolts to stay in? had a friend who owned two of them that the bolts wouldn't stay in the gun and got the major run around from Cooper. This was before Cooper supported Anti-gun obama. Cooper didn't think that that backlash would be anything like it has been. Why not support Obama? he is after them nasty black guns after all! he doesn't have any problem with Coopers bolt actions! Cooper made Jim Zumbo look like a hereo! It jus amazes me that any gun owner would support this company. Jeff
Lots of guys have had good luck or they wouldn't buy 3 or 4 of them. Supporting somebody who will do his level best to restrict law abiding citizens gun ownership doesn't seem to bother people. That explains a great deal why the country is going down the tube. Jeff
Well, if you think 4" groups with a bolt action sound bizarre, what about a 4 foot group. A number of years ago, I had Cooper build me a 6mm PPC. It took over 6 months to build, and they included a one hole target with the gun. After mounting a target B&L 36 power scope, I headed to the range. Shot my first group at 100 yds., but couldn't hit the paper. I then moved to 25 yds, same thing. Now I have that sick feeling in the bottom of my stomach. Back to the gunsmith where I ordered the gun. He put a straight edge on the holes that were drilled on the top of the receiver for the scope mounts. Crooked as hell. I mean they didn't even come close to aligning with the gun barrel. Gun goes back to Copper. I am not sure what they did, probably welded holes shut and redrilled, but the gun is now a tack driver. One hole at 100 yds. Although the gun really shoots, I suspect it is from the components they use (target barrel, trigger, etc.), not the workmanship.
My Cooper .223 rem single shot will shoot sub 1/2" groups all day. My Remington SPS Tactical with a 20" barrel will shoot under .75" all day and it cost less than half the Cooper. But, I love the wood of my Cooper. Slick rig with a 5x15 scope, but if you want a cheap shooter with long lasting quality, see the Remington SPS 20 barrel, Hogue stock.
