I had mentioned earlier that I have one of my nephews a .22 Cooey MODEL 39 that was my long deceased Dad's. He was thrilled. In the last month, I've refurbished three Cooeys! A buddy had a beat up Cooey 75 Target. Stripped and oiled the wood, cleaned up the steel. Looks good. He paid me with a Cooey 39! This was a beater but again, redid the wood and cleaned up the steel. Just finished this up and my nephew dropped off his girlfriend's old .22 for a facelift. Guess what? It's a Cooey 75!

I'm guessing pretty much every Canadian male or female baby boomer that took their first shot out of any rifle, it was a Cooey! As Canadian as maple syrup and back bacon! (And Crown Royal!)

Yup, 'Northern Harvest' Crown Royal....award winning elixir! My go-to campfire drink during hunting season.

Cooey sights are solid and deadly accurate as long as the shooter does their part.

Agree. Pretty simple but highly effective sites. I also agree that it's the nut behind the wheel. When I worked, several guys got caught up with all the sniper movies. They bought $5000 bolt rifles, one a .338 Lapua Mag. Topped that with a $2500 scope. Showed me document on these were sub MOA weapons at any range. I was at the range with him last summer. I'm by no means a great shot, but at only 100yds, my scoped No4 Mk1 kept pace.

One of my first Cooeys cost me $9.00 used.  Single shot. Dead accurate.
Needed an extractor, "(weak point) and a new one cost me Another $9.00!!
 
V good barrels on those rifles.

I've mostly "pretty up" model 39's but buddy's 75 I recently did has a fatter stock and the barrel is, if I remember correctly, about 4" longer than the 39. He has never shot it, but the bore looks good so I suspect it'll be a tack driver!
