I ordered mine thru First Stop Guns. Mark was a great guy to deal with. They saved me about $150 over everyone I had shopped.

sweet doubleA. The 6.5x284 will be my next round. I just love the .25 and wanted it to be my first!

Well I finally got the gun in and it looks great!! I will have to get some pics posted, I have not had a range break-in session yet, but I'm planning on spending a full day pushing some handloads through it before long!!

Default 3 years later I ordered my second Cooper

Well I loved my first one so much that I ordered a second one!! I went with a big bore on this one. Synthetic stock, stainless fluted barrel, spiral bolt, roll over cheek piece all in a 300 Weatherby. The stock will be olive with black splash!! They say the delivery time will be about 4 months, that will be quick compared to the first one!! Oh well, my next Cooper will be a 22-250, I know, counting my chickens before they are hatched, I just know that I want my next one in a wood gun with a stainless barrel.

My second was a M54 Custom Classic chambered in "The Bob". Tis a mild mannered beast that shoots typical Cooper groups. Have not bloodied it... yet!

Why would you all want to get a special custom Cooper and have in in plastic when they have beautiful wood stocks?

Congrats on a great rifle in two great calibers. The 2506 is hard to beat, and the 300 will do it all with interest.
