Sad...just sad. I love the .357 Classic platform and hate to hear about their problems.

I hope they come out of it in good shape. I love my Classic, and bought it to satisfy my magnum jones rather than wear out my Automag.

Anyone have an update on Coonan? They are on the list of vendors to attend SHOT Show, wonder if they will show up?

Good question. I haven't seen anything new, the lame attempt a few months ago to re-assure customer's is still on their website. I hope they survive, but it isn't looking good...Would be a good sign if they show up at SHOT, I'd take odds they will not, fwiw.

Looking at the comments on Facebook a few minutes ago isn't encouraging at all. Sounds like they are still stonewalling anyone trying to get in touch with them. Reading all this makes me damned glad I picked up 4 extra mags for my Classic a few years ago at a decent price. Because I imagine extra mags will be scarce, scarce, scarce in the future.

Keep it in good shape too. If they do out of business you're on your own for servicing....

Did they lockdown their Facebook page? I'm not a Facebook member, but I used to be able to creep their page and read the comments people were posting. When I tried today it's telling me I must first log into my Facebook account.

Wow, I just checked it out and it looks like they have removed/disabled their FB business page.

A friend of mine is one of their suppliers. Let's just say he dropped them.

Just tried calling them, both the main line and the fax come up as "number not in service."

Looks like the Better Business Bureau had a sizeable number of complaints from people who paid but never got their guns: https://www.bbb.org/us/mn/circle-pin...980/complaints

The city of Blaine fraud department: https://www.blainemn.gov/659/Fraud

Anoka County Sheriff's Department: https://www.anokacounty.us/432/Sheriffs-Office
Ramsey County Sheriff's Department: (Blaine crosses a county line) https://www.ramseycounty.us/your-gov...heriffs-office

Minnesota Attorney General's office: http://www.ag.state.mn.us/Office/Complaint.asp

One of those should be able to send you to the right court site (it wasn't obvious from the web) to find out if there are any ongoing lawsuits or judgements. I didn't find a filing for bankruptcy, other than the one in 1994.

If you want to see if the ATF can do anything, they have a Field Office in St. Paul, https://www.atf.gov/st-paul-field-di...-field-offices

In most jurisdictions there's a time limit for "I never got my stuff" complaints; since Coonan has silently dropped off the map, if you don't initiate a complaint or claim soon, you may lose out if the Sheriffs or ATF do recover property that would have been returned to you, had you filed a complaint in time. Some of the earliest complaints I found were a year and a half old; those guys are probably toast.

Dang, I'm sorry to see all this go down. Coonan was quick to replace the slide on my Classic when it developed that interior crack, and no lick of trouble since then. I know that a few parts are interchangeable with regular 1911 parts, but I have a sneaking feeling that the parts most likely to break are unique to the Coonan.

Like the barrel bushing?

I had mine break after probably 1,000 rounds.

So grateful I was able to get my money back even after 8 months of waiting. Luckily I had so many email exchanges with Coonan as evidence to forward to bank of america....

The website is still active, but from everything I have seen posted about them says that they are not a viable company. The message on the front page of their website is the same one they posted back in October or November with no update.

It sure would be nice if a company would buy out all their pistol stuff and plans when the liquidation happens and start manufacturing them under a new name. The basic design is sound but the company sure isn't.

Cabot, are you listening?

I found this on another site - not sure how accurate this is but maybe offers some relief for those of us who own a coonan and intend to shoot it !

The following parts of an M-1911 are the same as those in a Coonan:

Barrel Bushing
Disconnector
Firing Pin Stop
Hammer
Hammer Pin
Hammer Strut
Hammer Strut Pin
Magazine Catch
Magazine Catch Lock
Magazine Catch Spring
Plunger Tube
Plunger Tube Spring
Plunger Tube Slide Pin
Plunger Tube Thumb Safety Pin
Sear
Sear Pin
Sear Spring
Thumb Safety
Grip Screw
Grip Screw Bushing

I tried calling them again this morning. The phone is back in service and there is now a recorded message. You are unable to leave a message. The recorded message states they are in the process of a company restructure that is taking longer than expected, and they are not returning any customer requests until the restructure is completed.
