Surprised that Coonan didn't offer a 10mm long ago.  Anyway, good news!

I have actually never heard of them. Their blocked out style lends it's self to a Less Baer, if you close one eye and squint. I did find it interesting that they make a 357.

Sometimes lady luck just bends you over and calls you Sally
I came into this world with nothing, I still have most of it left.

Some people are like Slinkys. Pretty much useless but still make you smile when you push them down the stairs.

There is no right way to do something wrong.

Everyone brings joy to your life. Some when they come into it, others when they leave.

Coonan Arms info:


  About the Manufacturer:



"Dan Coonan founded Coonan Arms in St Paul Minnesota in the late 1970s and started manufacturing a unique 1911 style pistol chambered for the .357 Magnum revolver cartridge. The company started selling their pistol in 1983. Coonan sold the company to Bill Davis in 1985, and five years later he left the company. Rising production costs and the departure of Dan Coonan resulted in the company's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in 1994, and was eventually incorporated by JS Worldwide Distribution. Both Coonan Arms and JS Worldwide were eventually dissolved in 1998. 

The well constructed stainless steel semi-automatic pistol had an innovative design, but enjoyed only a short time on the American market. Many shooters noted that loading the rimmed .357 Magnum cartridge into a semi-auto pistol magazine traditionally intended for rimless rounds could present some feeding problems. Coonan also briefly offered a .41 Magnum variant from 1997 to 1998. 

In 2009 Dan Coonan, Dave Neville and Gordy Davis joined forces to revive the Coonan .357 Magnum Automatic Pistol by forming the new Coonan, Inc. They reintroduced the Coonan .357 Magnum Automatic Pistol, calling it the Classic."
