    I would almost bet that someone took it to Texas. I know Cooey exported firearms to Australia but I actually never heard of them being exported to the US.

    Hi longbow. The original Cooey shotguns, which were the model 84, all had walnut stocks and steel, case colored receivers. On most though, the case coloring has worn away. After Winchester took over, they started putting on plain hardwood stocks....

    Funny you mention that article as I just read it again yesterday. About 8 years back I was trying to find some information on a Cooey that I have. It took some effort but I finally managed to strike it lucky and was put in touch with Cooey's...

    The Cooey .410's don't last long when they come up for sale, especially the original model 84. 28 gauge model 84 Cooeys are gone in the blink of an eye if one comes up for sale.

    Actually this gun is no older than 1948 as that is when Cooey started producing shotguns. It looks to be force fit.

    The gun should be safe if switching to a solid projectile. (I'm talking this particular gun). The choke has been opened up. I know back in the day, there were countless slugs fired through these old Cooeys by hunters and farmers and that was with...

    I would think there would be a difference in pressures although I have no idea of how much. I know with smokeless shotgun shells, pressures can be different depending on the type of powder used and/or the type of wad used and depending on how tight...

    After the Winchester take over, the model 84 became the model 840. Some of the early Winchester 840's had walnut stocks and forged steel receivers, trigger guards and steel forearm spacers, likely because they were using up old stock from the Cooey...

    It works with a 209 primer. I know the adapters you buy now can be pulled out or tapped out from the bore. I can't pull this one out but I have not tried tapping it out with a rod.

    I recently picked this up because it was cheap and "just for the heck of it". It is a Cooey model 84 in 12 gauge. For those that don't know, Cooey was a Canadian firearms icon from 1919 to 1961 when they sold to Winchester. Pretty much every...

    BPJONES replied to a thread De-bluing a barrel in Muzzleloading.
    You want to remove the bluing without using any chemicals use varying grits of sand paper. I have removed the bluing from several double barrels that I have slow rust blued. Just don't sand as hard where you have any writing/stamping.

    I have one in 54 caliber. Mine has a tang mounted peep. I acquired it this summer but things were such that I never got any shooting in. I have it and a couple of others to try. But the GPR seems to be a nice rifle. Mine is an older one.
