I would be all over that like a duck on a June bug.

Looking at mine I think thats the "from the factory" recoil pad and , yes, it looks to be about 1" shorter then my stock rifle which is 14 1/4" off the center of the trigger to the top of the slight swell in the butt pad . I know what I said in my previous post about stocks and pads but I must wonder if that same pad might be available in a thicker format and/or two 1/4 inch spacer plates and a new pad might not just get you close to something that would work for you..... Check this out. Its 1/2" thick... add a spacer if needed:

or this one, it is .80" thick:

You need to get a good measurement from trigger to center of butt pad. Then you can figure what it needs.


Just thinking out loud.... Go buy the darn gun.... play with it and see what happens.

Pretty rifle. Were it mine, I would commission a stockmaker to fabricate an extension out of ebony or some similar contrasting wood. Trying to match the existing grain and color would be a nightmare.

Well I got the rifle, called Cooper and ordered a synthetic stock for it BUT it isn't the right stock for my rifle. It looks to be a centerfield stock. Sent a email to Dawn which is who I dealt with explaining the problem and included pictures of both stocks side by side. Talked to her today and she thinks my rifle is a 57-M which is a older model but it doesn't have a dash in the model number on the receiver. She basically said they don't have a stock for the rifle and I could send it back for a credit. I asked for a return shipping label and she says since it isn't a warranty issue they won't supply a return label. So now I get to pay shipping both ways for a stock that doesn't fit. I'm not impressed by the customer service I have received. This may be my first and last Cooper. I did send another email tonight with pictures of the receiver of my rifle showing clearly there is no dash asking for her to try again since I haven't found anywhere else that I can get a stock unless I want to go custom which costs way more than I would spend. Hopefully they will come through with something that will work.

Very surprising that Dawn didn't realize what you had. The 57M is the much earlier version of the now 57-M. I have dealt with Dawn a lot over the years. Mainly through email but she has always been great. She will email me after hours and even on weekends regarding my questions. If you decide to sell the rifle since it has such a short stock I would be very interested in it. I have a 10 year old daughter and another one that is turning 4. We could make a lot of memories with that little rifle.

Just a update on my 57M rifle, I wanted to come back and say that me being stubborn and not willing to give up I contacted Cooper and asked for the person in charge of stocks. Got a nice gentleman to listen to what my issue was and he did find me a synthetic stock that would work. He even had it painted the color I wanted and shipped it to me with a return label for the stock that wouldn't work. I'm pleased with what I finally got from them.

it is your rifle, but they make good looking adjustable shotgun buttpads that would fix the length problem, keep the beautiful wood stock already inletted for the rifle, all for under 100$.

So do we get pictures of what I assume is a custom painted Jackson Hunter stock? I have the standard issue version and I really like it. The finish is reasonably tough and the rough finish is almost as good as having checkering.
