That Dakota Model 10 in .22lr is a sight to behold!

Adding up what I'd have to sell to get one of those. . My first born is 8" taller than me and 4x's stronger, and a good shot...so that's out.

I have one of the Pedersoli Sharps in 45-70, but have been hankering after their Little Besty in .22LR https://www.davide-pedersoli.com/sch...tle-betsy.html

Does Cooper still make custom rifles?

Unless I missed it, you didn't specify what action type you prefered? If it was me I'd take a look at a NULA model 20. Another one I'm waiting to see is the new Vudoo single shot rimfire after Teddy Bear Rat gets a hold of one and puts it into some gorgeous piece of exotic wood! That has real potential as an "ultimate 22lr".

Here another one that's a bit more reasonable: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/873032113
I have no connection with this rifle but I wish I did. It's actually a pretty good deal, considering its quality construction and the beautiful wood.

I like the looks of the Varner single shot 22 rifles.

I never held one, but I sure wanted one.

Another option would to build a custom Thompson/Center Contender. There's some fantastic wood available for them plus they are accurate.

If anyone can turn it into a masterpiece, TBR can. And that Dakota is drop-dead spectacular. Another option -- send that Vudoo V-22S barreled action to LeRoy Barry at Canyon Creek. He and wife, Connie, are true artists! He could do a classic JSR-type stock or a full-length. He did the latter for me with a rather plain, but very accurate CZ452FS. Not the most exquisite walnut and not a single-shot, but...

Frankly, they don't make them like they used to. Wood, case hardening, bluing, fit of a 1910s Stevens or Ballard has to be seen to be believed. If I were you, I'd look for an original antique.



But if you want something new, CPA is supposed to make some nice Stevens replicas. They are based on the 44 1/2 action. I bought an original with 2 barrel set a couple years ago, for less than a new one.

I agree. Those old Stevens are real jewels. That is why I like the Varner which was a modern reproduction of fairly high quality. It is hard to find originals in decent condition, especially when they were used with corrosive powder.
