A 1911 chambered for the 357 magnum cartridge (the regular rimmed revolver cartridge). That too claim 1/2 MOA accuracy. I would love to get my hands on this one.

cannot put my finger on it but something about this 1911 looks quiet unlike a 1911. if you ask me, I kinda like this design better. not sure about the caliber though.

The question should be self-answered!

Excellent share Starfish bro, what a cannon there, and I really thought you were joking, till I checked the pics. Amazing!

When you order yours, no need to ask for confirmation from my side, lolz!

I just wonder on the recoil of the .357 Mag, being shot from a closed chamber? Yet, the large frame must be giving good absorption, perhaps.

Also I feel that the girth of the grip is slightly more than what we have on the 1911, or is it just my feeling??


Regards.

This is how a Desert eagle recoils(for comparison purpose)

@Faisji....................Bro, as usual, very prompt and useful references. Thanks.

I'd say both calibers highly impractical.

I'd suggesting learning to ride a mule first.

Actually Deagles are not really that bad to fire recoil-wise(357 and 44)Haven't had a chance with .50 yet but sometime this year i will :)

Coonan 357 is not a starter or even a casual enthusiast's gun.It is more for the experienced hunter/target shooter looking for a quick reload ability.

Although Coonan likes to say law enforcement and tactical i don't see a single police force in USA using the weapon in tactical rule.

Faisji: Great input. Thanks!
AK47: Sir jee forget about the recoil. there is no such thing. Only flashes of absolute pleasure ;) No seriously, this thing recoils less than a 357 mag 4' revolver.
I m sold. Plus, aint there no body noticing the 1/2 moa accuracy claim? :o

Still provided you can shoot it straight, course, lolz!

Come on Starfish bro, just look at the dame, the way the gun is about to airlift her, lolz!

I am sure the .357 Mag 4" barreled revolver will still give her some grounding, lolz!

My friend owns a .22 mag shown here in the picture.
1 of the guns belong to his guard so please no discussion on that specific weapon.

The AMT automag chambered in .22WMR
http://www.corbins.com/firearms/amt22l.jpg
Was sweet to hold it...Incredibly slim and light 8-9 round mag capacity.
Luminous sighting system and crisp trigger.
Sadly it had a LOT of FTFeed and FTFire issues.
This weapon was incredibly loud and had quite a muzzle flash(experienced during a firing session compared to the 9mm)

If I like to hav a sedan i'd get one .. or if I prefer an SUV i'd get that..
Besides the weapon is kinda big for cc.. an just bout the only advantage IMHO that an auto has over a wheel is high cap an an 8 round .357 wheel gun more or less takes care of that

I don't like revolvers so if I had to go with a .357 Id choose the Coonan

The AMT, KelTec comes out with pistols in unusual calibers for pistols like the .22 RF Mag and .357 but unfortunately these are always plagued with FTE,FTF andfail to fire and lack accuracy. They have again brought out a .22mag pistol with 30 shot magazine and the net is ablaze with the problems it is giving

Most assuredly not! After my experience with an IMI Desert Eagle, I have come to the conclusion that rimmed cartridges are not conducive to eliminating or reducing instances of FTF.

I've shot a lot of .44 Magnum through a Desert Eagle. It was interesting; it would shoot the cheapest no-name "white box" ammunition without a problem, but it didn't like any of the reloads I made using my older Hornady and Speed loading manuals. For the various applicable powders I had on hand, I found I usually had to start at the "maximum" load on the chart and work it up a grain at a time until it would reliably cycle the pistol. Not enough power = FTF. Almost enough power = FTE. The brass looked fine and the primers weren't flattened, so I wrote it down as extremely conservative listings in the books.
