Wow!! Very nice gun(s). I looked at a Coonan a few months back in 357 magnum and wasnt sure if it would cycle that long bullet. Some on the forum had seen or read about them and said they are top notch guns. Let us know how it shoots. Jealous!
I have one of the new Classics and it cycles that long bullet just fine. It is a flame thrower. An Leo friend of mine that shoots a .45 on duty says the Coonan has good feel and weight. I am going to get the 6" barrel when money becomes available. I love it so far.
