Coonan announces new satin-finished 10mm!
« on: July 15, 2017, 07:41:13 PM »
This is one beautiful pistola:

It seems natural, that a company like Coonan would eventually chamber a 1911 in the vaunted 10mm cartridge.  The 'round' too tough for the FBI!

Looks great!

He skimped on his review a bit though.

With the mag well set up for 357 mag, why not go ahead and chamber it for 10mm Mag?

Well...if I did my ciphering' right, the .357 Magnum's case (1.29") is a just a teeny-tiny bit longer than the 10mm Magnum's (1.255"). ::)

If Coonan really wants to make a statement, they should chamber their new pistol in 10mm Magnum; I mean, it ain't like they don't already have a frame large enough to do so.

Edited to add that I emailed them about this today.

I was kinda hoping they'd do a 10mm Commander!

I have written Coonan on several occasions about them producing a 10mm Magnum based on their 357 offering and they could even do the 9x30 barrel as well.  No response No reply...  :(

I did not know for sure if Coonan was building their 45 ACP's and 10mm's on the 357 frame or not.  Here their catalog shows that they are building them on a more standard size 1911 frame.

They could get the 10mm Mag loading by taking a 10mm slide and lengthening the ejection port and using a 357 frame. 

They make longer barrels for their 357 pistols so that would help.

 I shot a 357 Coonan Classic in 357 magnum last week and it was a ton of fun to shoot. Hopefully they will do a 10mm in the Compact.
