57M 17 mach 2 price check



Log in to see fewer ads
Found a 57M 17 mach 2 in a pawn shop today, it has a wood stock, stainless barrel, Nikon 6.5-20 scope. The lop is like 12" though so I don't know if it was ordered that way or cut off. Rifle is in excellent condition. Would it be worth 1350.00. Thanks for your opinions.

I'd say it's probably not too far off in price - pretty good value actually, if you consider the scope. I would like to own a Cooper one day. I probably would have laid down the plastic for it.

Roll over cheek piece? With stainless barrel it is likely a Jackson Squirrel rifle. Not sure why the short length of pull. New price would be $1000 more than that one.

Well worth it if you're a shortie or knew where a nice take off could be had.
The usual LOP would be no less than 13.5.

cooper

With the scope package even with the cut off stock it is worth the money. If you do not like the scope take it off and sell it on this website classifieds its worth at least 275-325 dollars. In reality you will be getting a 1000 dollar cooper rifle. If that rifle is really clean I would be calling where it is at and put a hold on it. Have you priced a cooper lately?

Yes, a package at half replacement cost but if the stock doesn't fit him, selling the glass pretty much gets him just a 1000 dollar Cooper action, not a usable rifle. Buying a proper length stock from Cooper won't be cheap(read economically unfeasible) and the odds of finding a take off are slim.
Adding two inches to the stock would make it usable,would have an expense, yet wouldn't increase its value.

It definitely feels weird when shouldered, I'm no a tall guy just average height. It isn't unshootable just don't feel right. I'm thinking about getting it and shooting it like it is for a while, then going for a replacement stock. This way it would be less painful to my bank account. Thanks for your input so far.

Shove a recoil pad on it. Will extend lop. Save you some bucks. Then you can get a better look at gun for performance.

I'd use the kid size stock as a bargaining point.
If a pawn shop has it, it was probably a distress sale and he's into it cheaply.

A slip on shotgun recoil pad would be a help, but one of those would only add another .50-.75 inches.

Still a great deal anyway you look at it.Short stock or not.

Certainly a "slip on pad" could solve some of the LOP. There are stock folks out there that might be able to "splice" on more wood although getting a good match is up for grabs.

If you have the itch for a JSR then its your bucks. I dropped the hammer on one, all stock with Leupold mounts and rings for about the price you have listed and I am not sorry...… A new stock from Cooper will cost some $$$ I would check around and see if there are any "stock company's" that make replacement stocks for Coopers.

Thanks fellas, I'm going to try to get the price down some more. 1350.00 wasn't the original asking price on the rifle. I think it was like 1499.00 plus tax. They did knock it down to 1350.00 tax included but I'm cheap.

Looks pretty nice.

...a dealer should know better than to leave a scope on a gun. He'd realize more if sold separately.
