I've got to admit, it took more than a bit of persuasion to get Cooper to build this rifle. They were pretty stuck on the standard Black/Grey VL stocks. Fortunately, Mark at First Stop added his...

I've just taken delivery of one in .223. Might be a personal thing but I think it's drop dead gorgeous.

Fit and finish is COOPER, nothing less.

First day at the range was disappointing, then I...

Scope rings, it's about getting the scope properly aligned with your eyes, not about getting the scope as low as possible on the rifle.

As high as the comb is, I'd start with high rings. Might...

Great looking rifle! Think it looks much nicer than standard color and along with the fluted barrel make for a very nice rig.

Icing on the cake is a great piece of glass.

And now, something completely different!

Just got the word my next Cooper is ready to ship.

My last special order was a .22lr Custom Classic with nearly the full Monty of options.

This one is about as completely different as possible....
