Cooper Special Order number 2013-02: Do you need a tack driving, bolt action rifle that doesn’t care if it rains, snows or shines? Do you want a cartridge that has a mild recoil but great effectiveness while pushing a 40 grain bullet to more than 4000 FPS, and with a maximum range of approximately 500 yards? Well, if you answered yes to both questions, this wonderful Cooper M21 Phoenix in .204 Ruger may be the rifle for you. The stock is synthetic, black in color with red “spider webs” covering the surface for cosmetic appeal and to provide a good gripping area. A Pachmayr basket weave, ¾ inch recoil pad finishes the butt, and two post sling swivel studs are placed along the bottom of the stock ~ 3 inches from foreend tip and ~3 inches from the tow. The single shot action is pure Cooper with a machined steel receiver, a solid bolt with three locking lugs forward, a Sako-style machined extractor, a machined plunger-style ejector, and a fully adjustable trigger. The action is bedded in the stock. The stainless steel Wilson barrel starts at ~ 1 inch diameter at the receiver and tapers over its special order 26 inch length to ~ 0.720 inch. The barrel’s exterior is finished to a soft, low reflectance matte and the muzzle is crowned to protect the rifling. The barrel is free-floated from the forward end of the receiver. OAL = 44 7/8 inches. LOP = 13 ¾ inches. Weight = 8 pounds. New in box with test target, owner’s manual, warranty card and papers.
