Listen up, all of you. Any behavior similar to that in the last thread with the same name will not be tolerated. Most of the worst posts were made by long time members here that should know better. :mad: There is no excuse for that kind of behavior.

Have you tried a pm to Leroy? Seems he was the bearer of the news.
Leroy didn't start the thread, he posted that he had spoken to Dan and Dan confirmed the rumor. Wilson supplied the non-custom ordered barrels for the Coopers. (You could special order other brands). As a supplier, they would have been among the first to know of any buyout opportunities.

Given the small size of the Montana shop and the large size of the Wilson Arms manufacturing plant in Connecticut, it's going to be tempting to consolidate manufacturing there. Like Kimber of Oregon and Kimber of New York, we might be looking at a Cooper of Connecticut.

LOL just playing with ya. Leroy and Connie Barry Owners of Canyon Creek Custom Gunstocks. They both used to work for Cooper.. Leroy helped in the design of most of the Coopers you see today. He was the main man when it comes to stocking Coopers. Connie was THE checker er and still is!

Many rifles you see posted on rimfire central under the copper section that are not stock he probably did. Connie's checkering is art work. Leroy and Connie not only put out beautiful rifles...they are closer to works of art!

Leroy also has many pieces done for the Anschutz guys.

I called Cooper to day to ask about a lead time. I then asked the girl I was speaking to about the rumor I had heard. She confirmed it, they have been sold to Wilson. She also said they are staying in Montana and are going to continue to do business with the same employees that they have.The new owner was not going to change anything. My new Cooper will say "Cooper of Montana" on it!!!
