Thread: equals a Cooper Phoenix??

  1. #1

    Default equals a Cooper Phoenix??

    I have read previous forum threads about Dan Cooper and his Obama connection--don't want to buy from them yet!! Sooo, what other rifles are out there that will shoot as well,out of the box,as the Phoenix?? I do like seeing their targets with basically "one hole" for the 3 shots that come with the rifle. I am looking at .204,.223,.25-06--varmit and fun stuff!! I am open to most ideas, except a one year wait for some custom job. thanks

    Take a look at the Howas that Legacy is importing and selling on Hogue and Knox stocks. They are very well made guns.

    Wheatherby Vanguard's Sub MOA rifles come with a target shot at the factoy. If you cherry pick them you can fins some sub .5 MOA shooters.

    You might look at Noslers M48. About on par with Cooper in terms of price and available in 22-250 this year.

    Sub MOA varmint rifles are pretty common these days for surprisingly low prices.

    Cooper has been bought by another company.

    Default Cooper

    Some may shoot like a Cooper, but you ain't going to find any Savage that has the build quality and walnut that a Cooper has. If you want a Cooper, get one. Politics have nothing to do with it.

    If it is true that Dan Cooper has sold the business an no longer associated, I would have no problem buying a Cooper. I sent them an email last week asking the status of Dan and have not recieved a response.
