Default Ordered my first Cooper

I ordered my first Cooper about a month ago!! I went with the Jackson Hunter in a 25.06. I also ordered the fluted barrel with it also. I wish I would have went ahead and got the Jackson Excalibur and I would have got all of the above plus a fluted bolt also. I just wish it didn't take so long to get it in. Looking forward to getting it!!

Sounds good. The last Cooper build I had took 7 months as I furnished the stock blank for it.

Holy cow! Man I hope it doesn't take that long. They told me 3-5 months.

Once you get it, you are gonna like your Cooper. The wait seems like forever, though. I bought a Custom Classic in 257 Roberts last year and I love it. I also have a Browning A Bolt in 25-06 and it is my favorite deer rifle. Enjoy.

Great choice. I've had a Jackson Hunter in 25-06 for several years. It's a keeper. Mine also took about 6 months (as I remember). Scoped it with a Swaro AV 2.5-10 X 42 with the TDS reticle.

Did you order it directly from Cooper, or from a dealer? Just curious.

I ordered from a dealer. That may be one reason it took awhile. All I know is that it is well made and shoots great. My only complaints are:
1). It's kind of heavy
2). The safety is rather small

Other than that, no issues what-so-ever.
