" Rifle, Cooey Pattern, .22in, Instruction, No. 1 "
Excited and very pleased to find this at the local gunshow today,
as I have been looking for a good, clean example for a while.
I love it !
The 'Cooey Model 82' in .22 cal. was made in Cobourg, Ontario
and saw service during WWII, simulating full size military rifles.
The Canadian Government ordered 34,810 at a cost of
$13.80 each. After the war, they were sold as surplus.
'Broad arrow' markings are seen in three places on the piece.
Only thing missing is the hard-to-find rear peep sight, but
I'm not worried. I added a U.S. M1 sling for now.
Last pic is the commercial Model 75 - the type might be
made up from leftover wartime stock, as this one
has a 'C-broad arrow' marked bolt.........
