Coonan, Inc. introduced the new Compensated Pistol to its .357 Magnum Automatic line. With an extended barrel length to 5.7 inches, the Compensated Pistol is ideal for reduced recoil resulting in greater accuracy from a top-of- the-line performer.
"The Compensated Pistol is real pleasure to fire," says Dave Dietz, Marketing Director for Coonan, Inc. "There is not another pistol on the market like the Coonan .357 Magnum Automatic, and when you combine that with such amazing light-recoil, the Compensated Pistol is truly a shooter-friendly addition to the Coonan family."
With all the standard 1911 features of the traditional Coonan, the Compensated Pistol .357 Magnum Automatic comes with dovetail front and rear sights, solid stainless steal slide and frame, seven-round magazine and finishes out with smooth Black Wallnut grips. The Compensated Pistol is 48.8 ounces empty and 52.8 ounces loaded, and has a height of 5.6 inches and width of 1.3 inches. With the increased barrel length, the pistol is 10.5" in overall length.
