Our Assessment: This is a Model 21 bolt action rifle from Cooper Firearms of Montana. Cooper made their way into the rifle market producing high-quality rifles at “affordable” prices, though their quality means that affordable is in relation to rifles such as Blaser, Dakota and other high-end manufacturers. Beginning in 1990 a handful of former employees from Kimber of Oregon, with over 50 years in combined experience, set out to design and build the finest production rifles made in the United States. They have been known as one of the top makers of bolt action rifles ever since. This model 21 was manufactured in 2008 and is in Excellent Plus overall condition, showing little use. This example has a 22? barrel chambered for .223 Remington, great bore, beautiful CCL checkered wood stock, and retaining 99% of its beautiful blued finish. This is a gorgeous rifle that will make short work of paper targets and would make a fine hunting rifle, making this a definite must have bolt action single shot rifle!
