Well, my birthday seems to roll around every year about this time. I've been saving for this rifle for about three years. It's a Cooper Model 22 chambered in 220 Swift. I just thought you might be interested in a few pictures.

Naturally, it's left handed, and I upgraded the wood. It is a tiger striped AAA+ Claro Walnut

This is the supplied test target. Three shots and handloaded too!

South Paws unite! I love that rifle! It makes my Ruger M77MKII LR look like a polished turd??? No just kidding. I love my Ruger rifle. But that is a pretty rifle!

Real nice looking rifle you have there. I lhave a Kimber .300 WSM that has wood grain like that and it is a treat to the eyes to look at it under the natural light of the sun.

That is just plain gorgeous! I have been looking for an idea of a custom to treat myself when I retire in 3 yrs. and they just might be the people I get to do it. That is beautiful!
Thanks for sharing!

Very exceptional wood. Great looking rifle. Being left handed myself most of my rifles are lever guns (Don't think I've ever found a left hand one here in Wyoming). Got a few right hand models that I can work with if I have to. Only buy shotguns with the thumb safety. All my Ruger single actions work just fine. :lol:
