Nineteen year old Alison Barnette of Marysville, Ohio on a recent groundhog hunt with her Cooper Model 21 Classic in .223 Remington. Her longest shot was 307 yards. The accuracy and light weight make this Cooper her favorite varmint rifle.
"I shot this cat with a Cooper Phoneix in 6BR. after watching it kill a 4x4 bull elk. The shot was only a little over 200yds. and it was through pine tree branches. It took 10 minutes or so to see him again. I made a tough shot to take this cat. I own 9 Coopers so far and plan on buying more. Thanks for great looking and shooting rifles."

"I went to Africa with one of your rifles, a Cooper 52 in .30-06 I purchased from Lance Hendershot of Hendershot's Sporting Goods in Hancock, Md. I added a Leupold 3-9x40 scope and Talley quick detachable rings. I shot five animals with one shot kills using 180g Barnes bullets. Great rifle!"

"Yes, in fact I do hunt like a girl"
Marie Jappe shot this elk with the Model 52 she bought last year for her husband. She shot a nice antelope too.
"I own nine Cooper Rifles at this time and I am very impressed with the design, quality and accuracy of them. I am not the best hand loader, but even my loads all stay under minute of angle with some loads going 1/2 Minute."
"Just wanted to show you the Elk that I shot in North Central Wyoming this fall with my Cooper Model 52 in 338-06. Great rifle and awesome performance. 200 yards, 210 Grain Nosler Partition."
14 year old Nicholas Mies
At 7:30 a.m. on opening day of his first year deer hunting Nicholas shot this buck with his Cooper 30-06 that he saved up all his earnings for. This ones a wall hanger and a great way to start a lifetime of hunting memories with his Cooper.
"Here are a couple of photos of my good friend Oren Dorris & I with the antelope he harvested in Montana this year. This antelope has 17" horns and scores 84 7/8" B&C. He was taken with a Cooper Classic in .250/3000 AI. This rifle is one of the most accurate rifles I have ever had the pleasure to shoot. I liked it so much I convinced him to let me use it as my guide gun this season. We harvested 5 mule deer and an elk with the rifle and it performed flawlessly. I plan on having one made for myself this year. Thanks and keep up the good work. "

"My father was instrumental in creation of the Brown County Chapter of the American Rimfire Association (ARA). My father spoke of his experiences in the ARA and suggested I join. I started Precision .22 Caliber Shooting in the spring of 2005.
The first year, I used my father’s Martini rifle. Although, I placed occasionally using the Martini, my father dominated the matches using his Cooper Sporter Rifle.
My father learned of the production of a Cooper Bench Rest Rifle. He jumped at the chance to order the rifle. Unsure of the delivery time, he ordered another Bench Rest Rifle in order to compete in the upcoming season. The rifles came a few months apart so I was given the Cooper to use.
I loved the Cooper from the first time I shot it. I shot the Cooper 57m for the 2006 season. I won first place in the South Dakota State Championship with a top target score of 2275. I shot a 2200 target score in the last match of the 2006 season. I did not alter the Cooper Bench Rest Rifle in any way. I did add the basic accessories of a scope, tuner, and a Henrich Device. My father and the Cooper Bench Rest Rifle have helped me achieve my success in Rimfire Precision Shooting."

"This is a photo of my Model 52 in 25-06 on my recent antelope hunt. The first load tested went .5" and after only one range session I was ready to go. The antelope was right at 225 yards and went right down. He ended up scoring 81" and is the first of many animals I will take with this rifle. Just got the Leupold back with turrets on it and going to get serious this winter with it.
"This is a very nice springbok shot in africa by a model 52 in 270. First Cooper kill in Africa.
