Thanks for the update, glimmer of hope with this horribly managed company. While I would never buy another thing from them again, it would be good if my Conan can still get warranty repair's if needed.

See that's the problem...you've got the "Conan" model. It is a cheap imitation...

763.786.1720 from the website?

I tried, "the number you are trying to reach is out of service"


whatever is going on at coonan, whenever the truth is fully revealed it will make one hell of a documentary

the real issue nagging me is shoot these beautiful babies or keep em cozy on their thrones in the safe

Just tried the number again and getting the "#out of service" message too. Shoot 'em, not good for anything else!

So it's been over a year now that we started this thread. What's everyone doing with their Coonan's? I ended up selling my Classic. In the end the lack of mags and any sort of parts availability did me in. I put it up on Gunbroker and got a nice price for it. I have money down on a 6" Springfield 10MM TRP that will be replacing it shortly. The 10MM offers the same or better ballistics, the TRP fit and finish is far better than Coonan, and I can buy mags and anything else I need from an endless selection of vendors.

Wow it appears Coonan is up for auction! So glad I sold off mine over a year ago.

Going to keep my 3 coonans, and still shoot them. I bought my first one back in the early 80s cannot see me going to the range and not being able to have a coonan to enjoy shooting, but that is just me, I like them .

Sunk cost bad trade, no different than buying a stock which goes bad on you, and this is a small loss as things go...I hope no one was naive enough to think they were coming back. I'll shoot mine till it dies, shoots nice, after that it will make a very attractive paperweight and commemorator of my US-Navel Service - I got the Navy Camo finish and love it! - LOL! I don't need the money, don't need to sell it.

No interest in 10mm, yep both rounds are ballistically very similar and both offer wide ranges of power factors, but a 10mm without a comp isn't going to shoot near as well as even the uncomped Coonan (with similar PFs at the high-end). It was designed around the 357M and the reason why it was such a unique and great shooting gun. Alas, the owner was bad at business, his second bankrupcy. Big mistake when they went all in too fast with too many other calibers. An incremental approach may have worked better and even if it didn't, they might have been able to stay in business.

I would like to know if any 10mm coonans were sold, any one have one? How about a range report. Did you have any problems with it?

I loved the Coonan and put thousands of rounds through it. Always drew a crowd at the range.

But after having the slide crack, barrel bushing crack, and trigger become extremely loose, I didn't have a warm fuzzy feeling owning a gun that would no longer be able to be fixed down the road.

Add the mag release to the list. This coonan owner is SOL at the moment:

Agree 100%. Not to mention the price point of their 10mm offerings was significantly more than other companies. Those were going to be a hard sell in an already saturated market. Should have just stuck with 357 mag for the time being.

It is my understanding that Mr. Coonan had sold the first Coonan company to someone else and they were the ones to close it.
