    Both of my new Coonan .357 semi auto's arrived at my local FFL today and I was johnny-on-the-spot to bring them home. I purchased them through our own David Cote of DRC Firearms - A true gentleman and a true joy to deal with! More on Dave when my review gets written, but I had to thank him here first for all of his tireless help with these! :wavey:
    Here's what arrived:

    Here's what was in each case:

    I will be writing two reviews, the first based on just visual and handling, the second on how these babies shoot. I have the range reserved for me and some buds on monday, so hopefully the weather cooperates and we git 'er done!
    One of these will stay stock, and the other will be going to Dave Severns for some customization including a full Hard Hat blackening, and other things.
    I'm excited about these things and cant' wait to rip into 'em! From the five minutes of fondling I've had time to do, they seem VERY well built!
    Review and close ups/details to follow in a couple of days!

    What do you think is going to happen when the range safety officer (me) suddenly cuts loose with a torrent of two handed lead spraying from these babies? I may not be invited back, but I don't think I'll be able to resist! :whistling::rofl:

    Dave did you good. I sense new shoes for each. Not something you see every day.

    Great. There is a lot of vaporware out there and it is good to see some steel.

    ......do they make one in .45acp?? (joke)


    Like a moron I passed on a cheap NIB one back in the mid 90s as I was not into 1911s back then.

    That wouldn't be very safe range etiquette if you are dual wielding doing the tactical fitness turn, elbow high "CLEAR" maneuver to reholster.

    Maybe you should learn from the best.

    Hokie, you nailed it. That's what I was talking about. It'll be too cold here for me to wear the tank top, but I may have the Miami Vice scruff and sunglasses. :tongueout:

    The magazines for the new Classics are $60 direct from Coonan Firearms, so I imagine they will be a few $$ cheaper through a dealer, although I don't do that for a fact at all.

    They look great.

    I especially like the Alumagrips with the Coonan logo. :)
