Default Cooey/Winchester 30.06

I have a Canadian made Cooey Model 1 in 30.06. I'm trying to find out what it is worth? I can't find a single drop of info on this model Cooey.
What I do know. Cooey was a Canadian gun company until 1961 when they were bought out by Winchester. They made guns under the Cooey/Winchester name from 1961 to 1964. So this rifle was made between those dates. It's a carbine bolt action with an 18" barrel. Top feed mag.
Anybody have a clue what this thing is worth? Seem to be a rare rifle since I can't find a thing about it?

The following information was taken out of the 28th edition of Blue Book of GUn Values by S.P. Fjestad Pg. 582


Cooey, H.W., Machine & Arms Co. LTD.

Previous manufacture located in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, 1903-1961. During 1961, Cooey was sold to the Olin Corp. and placed under the supervision of the Winchester Western Division. At this point, the manufacture of Winchesters (Primarily for Winchester Canada) began and continued through the mid 1970's (see Iver Johnson).

To date, their is limited collector demandfo most models in this trademark and values should be based on the shooting utility rather than collector premiums due to rarity. Values for average condition gun will typically range between $75 $150.

Cooey manufactured a wide number of rifles, including bolt action, single shot, and semi-autos. During the late 1920's-early 1930's, Cooey manufactured the Model X and model 2X for Iver Johnson

Pre-1961 Cooey Mfg. models include: 25, 35, 39, 55, 60, 62, 75, 78, 82, Ace, Ace1, Ace2, Ace3, Ace Repeater, Ace Special, Bisley Sport, Canuck, Canuck 25, Canuck Jr., Canuck Western, Cooey Repeater, HWC, Mohawk, and several unnumbered single shot and repeating sporter rifles. Post-1961 Cooey Firearms made by winchester were Model 10, 39, 60, 600, 64, 64 Delux, 64A, 64B, 71, 71 Carbine, 75, 750 delux, 710, and Ranger.

Thanks for the reply. Even with all the Model # listed I still don't see listed what I have. Maybe its one that snuck out the back door!
I know it wasn't made after 1975 because it's been in my paws since than.

The Cooey center fire rifles were manufactured until at least 1971. I bought one brand new that year.The serial numbers run to about 10,000 so they aren't that rare , at least in canada. They were manufactured in Cobourg Ontario by Winchester Canada and are exactly like the mod. 670 Winchester (with a slightly less fancy stock).I currantly own 4 of them and they are all very accurate for a gun that sold for aprox. 80-100 bucks (or for any other price for that matter). Odicoilius. ps Your gun must be a mod. 71 The "7" must have been poorly stamped !

Default Maybe this?

I think you have a Cooey version of the Winchester 70A thats a economy/utility version of the classic model 70 with no hinge plate or forearm tip and plain walnut stock made 1972-1978.
The Canadian version (Cooey) Manufactured by Olin/Winchester were normally "plain jane" versions of standard Winchester models.
