    I love my ancient cooey. I had to clean mine up from rusted shut and covered in decades of dirt, but it's been a ridiculously accurate gun ever since. Until what I suspect is a problem inside the bolt. Every now and again I take another crack at fixing it but there is precious little info online.

    I'll definitely be following this thread!

    Yeah I love my Cooey, I wish they made a modern one. Grooved receiver, 20" barrel, and cock on close. But keep the basic trigger setup.

    Made a rubber butt pad for it, since the metal was kinda slippery.



    Found the shortest rings I could find, mounted a bipod. The tape is where the barrel is being cut. Waiting on a 1/2-28 die.



    Working on the stock, since the barrel channel is kinda chipped.
    Why are you cutting the barrel that short?

    Because these guns were made back when they thought longer barrels were better. I'm cutting it around 20", that number is used by alot of the precision 22s.

    Well I guess your chopping up a cheap old gun.

    I have a dozen cooeys and I won't alter the rifle or stock.

    I will refurbish the stocks and blueing.

    Guess it's devaluing the gun all the same, many of mine came to me altered already.

    Well it was already drilled and tapped. And Cooey fitted what I wanted. I couldn't find a non super heavy basic single shot. Most have .920 bull barrels, or youths stocks.

    Cooey got a med bull barrel. Isn't super heavy, basic but decent trigger. Large chamber area to insert a round.

    And they're cheap.

    I had a model 75 that I loved, it was so accurate with iron sight that even a 12 yr old won a trophy shooting it. I hit 99 out of 100 at 25 yards.
    That poor gun was in the trunk of my ‘89 Cavalier z24 when it was rolled by a friend. It rolled end over end a couple times and then barrel rolled a few times. Buddy was lucky to live, neither the car nor the gun survived.
