Coonan is an American gun manufacturer that’s made a name for itself with an unusal all-stainless steel 1911 pattern semi-auto pistol chambered for the potent .357 Magnum revolver cartridge, named the .357 Automatic. Chambered for a powerful cartridge with a wide variety of bullet options, the standard 5-inch barrel model with a 7+1 round capacity is popular with hunters, target shooters, and some law enforcement and military agencies. Earlier this year at SHOT Show, the company announced the launch of a softer shooting version of this gun with a fixed muzzle break.

At the NRA show, the company released a brand new compact version. The barrel has been shortened to 4-inches and the grip length reduced to accept a 6-round magazine. Those customers who order the new Coonan compact .357 Automatic at the NRA show this year will receive a pistol with a special NRA serial number.
