    Well I have been eyeballing them for years. Ran across super deal I couldn't pass up. WOW!!!! I should have picked one up years ago. This thing is the softest, softest accurate, smoothest trigger 357 I have ever shot.

    Second range trip and sighted in at 25 yards no fuss no muss. Used 125 grain then 158 grain.

    The 125 come out and it feels like a 9mm and 158 like a 45 acp.

    I can't get enough if thus gun. I am impressed!!! I sure hope they make another come back as I would like to get a couple more mags. 250 to rounds so far. Loving every minute.

    Congrats, I would love to have one of those. Oh, and by the way.....

    You guys are so right sorry about that. I was able to get the laser etched coonan logo from alumagrips. They still had some left over. Thy really make the coonan shoot much nicer. They are slightly thinner and the texture gives greater control. Darn thing shoots so nice I was thinking about letting my 6 inch ruger security six go......nah. but the service six maybe.....well only if i could find the coonan compact lol.

    Thanks... I am truly puzzled as to how this company would not still be operational. I hope they get back up and running. Best shooting gun I own

    Hiking in bear country. That is about the only time I would open carry. And this pistol would be a likely candidate. Of course, I gotta win the lottery first.

    Wow, did you find one NOS? It's in fantastic condition! Congratulations!

    It would be interesting to see some disassembled photos, for comparison with a normal 1911.
