Coonan 45 ACP , the Next Generation 1911 Pistol

  Mike Searson, Ammoland December 8, 2016 All in all, we found this to be a mild shooting 1911 with tremendous accuracy potential.

Questioning the Coonan .357 Magnum. American Cop Magazine

  Mark Kakkuri, FMG American Cop Magazine,  Nov. 24, 2015 You’ve probably heard of this pistol but never actually fired it. And it’s even less likely you’ve carried it concealed. Coonan’s Compact .357 Magnum pistol (retail $1,535), a 1911, creates more than enough intrigue just by combining the numbers “357” and “1911”. I’m hoping to [...]

Coonan Compact .357 Magnum 1911: Carry-Friendly Fight Stopper

Scott W. Wagner, USCCA October 2, 2015 With the right ammunition, the .357 Magnum still reigns as the ultimate conventional fight-stopping round, and it has held that distinction since its introduction 80 years ago this year. Pretty impressive considering that quite a few defensive handgun cartridges have been introduced since that time. What is more [...]

Coonan .357 Magnum Automatic, best of both worlds. Rangehot.com Video Review.

Hunter Elliot, Editor. Rangehot.com I took the Coonan out and ran several boxes of factory and reloaded ammunition.
