Hi, ry:
   Glad to have another Saskatchewan stubblejumper on board.  I can't remember seeing a Cooey that the bolt handle goes vertical on. A neighbour has a book on Cooeys and I'll check with him.

Bye
Jack

glad to be here , found a picture in my 1941 marshall wells catalog showing a
cooey rabbit rifle witch looks to be the same as mine. New price $8.20 canadian.
the sporting goods section was a very intersting read to say the least. entire catalog is probably 2000 pages (will check tomorrow as i browse through somemore). will take gun to the Yorkton Sask. gun show this weekend ( Feb 23-24) and see about identity ans parts( need stock).

Hi, ry:
   I'll be at the National Firearms Association table part time on Saturday.  Got arm-twisted again!  See you there.

Bye

just got back from the show in Yorkton, SK.  A pretty decent show overall, lots of people  ( some buying- some selling or trading ). Was looking for a winchester or marlin lever gun in .44 mag but struck out completly. Found out the old .22
is a FN  1912 .22lr trainer built until around 1935 and found a dealer with one that has a good stock but the reciever is cracked on the top of the chamber so i am hoping to make one good complete gun and with some epoxy on the bad stock make a wall hanger .

Check Allan's Armory and Century and the milsurpshooter.net. Some of these can be had pretty cheap. There are different trainers from a lot of countries listed sometimes according to availability. I understand the trainers in some models are very good shooters.

I have an old F/N Single shot boy's style rifle that retuned to Liege for rechambering to .22 extra long in 1898 according to the proof marks. This is a very light rifle that weighs all of 3 1/2 lbs....

Tell me about the extractor on your gun- is it on the bolt, or is there a seperate rail running under the breech for it? I am 350 miles to the east of you in Winnipeg, and gunnutz is back on line-

Just a quick p.s. here- a rifle made in 1912 predates high velocity ammo- I'd keep it to standard velocity, or subsonic ammo- likely how the receiver cracked on that soon to be wall hanger....
