Yes, this history sounds accurate. To my knowledge the Cooey connection was to Winchester and not Savage. Savage bought Lakefield Arms which is located in Lakefield, Ontario. All Savage rimfires are now made there and use the Lakefield design. I don't know if Cooey is still in business, and suspect it is not. There was one kicking around in our family, and it worked well. I took a few gophers with it, but never shot any paper to really see how accurate it was.Hi everybody. My father bought a COOEY (made by WINCHESTER WESTERN CANADA) model 600 cal .22 S. L. & L.R. bolt action with a tubular magazine under the barrel in fall 1974. It has no serial number stamped on it. COOEY was a canadian firearms manufacturer established in Cobourg, Ontario in business from 1903 to 1961, when it was bought by WINCHESTER to produce and sell firearms in Canada. The only problem it had happened in 1977 when the extractor grip broke and at that time it cost less than 3$ to buy a new one. My father repaired it and it is still fonctionning very well since then. I don't know how much it is worth today but in Eaton's Fall-Winter 1974 catalog the price for a brand new one was 49,95$ CDN. It is a small and very enjoyable little carbine. I hope this informations could help!
