i have got an old single shot Cooey .22. it has an unusaul shaped stock and has very long and heavy barrel for a .22. i haven't ever seen any other cooey like it and was wondering if this was some sort of target model or something. there not worth much because i picked it up for $40 at a local gunshow.

i think it is one of the older guns because on the newer model 39's pieces such as the trigger gaurd appeared to machined were as mine is steel strap that has been bent and drilled

Your's sounds like one I used to have. It was real accurate, but the bolt wore out. It had a sort of step in the fore end to make it feel like a military rifle. I was told that they were used as a training rifle for the Canadian airforce. I belive mine was made in the 1920s or 1930s.
