so it's a bolt action repeater, or is it a single shot ???

mine the striker must be pulled back manually to cock it... probably keeping very little kids from using the gun, as I assume it was marketed as a kids rifle...

... I originally kept mine around for my nieces & nephews... though they've all grown up now

Cooey rifles were made in Canada. The design is very similar to a Winchester 67 or 68.

I did some digging and I found that the HW Cooey Arms and Manufacturing model 60 repeating .22 was made between 1939-1940. I had 2 of them one with a scope and one without but I traded the one without the scope for a Ruger 10/22.
