Where to find in stock



Log in to see fewer ads
Gentlemen,

Was about to pull the lever to purchase another semi-fine 22LR but held up to take a bit to look into these Coopers.

Are there places online that carry the coopers or are they all bought from Cooper or off of gunbroker?

Where should I look.

Thanks for any guidance.

I don't recall if 57Ms are available in leftie, but I doubt it.
In any case, a classic stock will work better for you than a Ans. Monte Carlo.

New Jersey Gun Guild had lots of them in years past, always about 40,but I haven't been there since then.(and this was when they all had time consuming to make wood stocks, not the plastic found on so many now) They might send you photos, but don't have a website of what's available.

Tom Thomas of "The Outdoorsman" in Pa was great to deal with, but I think he is no longer in the biz(or still alive?) I lose track of the passing years.

Coopers are "made to order" no warehouses with thousands on pallets like Remchesters and Rugers. Its about about a 2 year wait right now, A few dealers have a couple in stock like Hendershots.

Ah ok, thank you two.

I have found a couple that are used and affordable. Does the 1/4" @ 50 yards extend to the second owner?

I doubt it. The warranty is only for so long.
If you decide to buy a used Cooper, get only a Model 57M, not a 57 or 36.

Cooper 57M

Yes Cooper made left hand 57M. I have one I bought new from Firestix Arms, Bement, IL. He was, is, a stocking dealer of Cooper. Mine has factory options such as steel trigger guard, inleted swivels, high polish blue and Warne bases.

check out First Stop Guns, they usually have quite a few Coopers listed. Also look at gunsamerica.com there are always some listed there.

That really isn't a warranty, that is merely an example of what it can do with a certain ammunition. I have a gorgeous target and have used the same brand and have not gotten the same groups. I am afraid it all comes down to the lot number.

Anschutz test targets are more realistic and often can be bettered.
I doubt that any test shooter can consistently put five rounds in the same tiny hole with every gun, as Cooper test targets indicate. It's not a matter of ammo lots.

Over the years, on this forum, this subject has come up numerous times. The Cooper "test target" is not a proof of accuracy, but rather a proof of function. It indicates that the rifle functioned before it left the factory. Cooper "guarantees" the rifle will shoot 1/4" at 50 yards with quality ammunition but doesn't indicate that the "test target" was fired at 50 yards. Cooper cannot "guarantee" that any putz is going to shoot as well as the test target indicates. No matter what ammunition or lot is used. Keep in mind that these "test targets" are all shot indoors at a range that is highly suspect.

I'm not trying to put anyone down but I think most have misconceptions of what they are buying. Every Cooper I own shoots. Rimfire and centerfire. On occasion, I have shot my 57M LVT as well as the "test target" with Federal bulk ammo at 50 yds. outdoors. All of my rifles have been extremely accurate as far as I'm concerned. I bought my rifles to use and hunt with in all conditions.

I know there are others that post on this forum that know exactly what I am saying about everything.
I also know that no matter what, Cooper offers an excellent product for the money.

If you want everything a $6000 rifle offers, you have to pay $6000.

I guess if you mean wood quality and metal finish. But in terms accuracy, I have 75 year old Mossbergs I've paid under $100 for and $300 CZ .22s that shoot that good.
