New from Coonan: .357 Automatic with Compensator

Some gun grabbers say that anyone who shoots a gun (or drives a Corvette) is compensating for something. In fact, Sigmund Freud associated retarded sexual development with a fear of guns. Neuroses aside, a “compensator” is another word for a “muzzle break”: an end-of-barrel device used to “redirect propellant gases with the effect of countering both recoil of the gun and unwanted rising of the barrel during rapid fire.” At the risk of returning to the original proposition, the problem with handgun compensators is bulk. Unless you’re used to a Peter North-sized pistol in your pants, a compensated handgun is about as useful for concealed carry as an SOG Tactical Tomahawk. But compensated handguns are ideal for target shooting, especially larger caliber firearms like Coonan’s $1375 .357 Magnum Automatic. The only drawback? Money. How much? So much they ain’t sayin’. Still, if you’ve got a big wad (of cash), who cares? Press release after the jump . . .

Coonan, Inc. is proud to announce the new Compensated Pistol to its .357 Magnum Automatic line.

With an extended barrel length to 5.7”, the Compensated Pistol is ideal for reduced recoil resulting in greater accuracy from a top-of-the-line performer.

Why is government stockpiling guns, ammo?

    Shouldn’t you be using the term “semi-automatic” rather than automatic before Obama or Feinstein reads this?

    • fliteking

      Lester nails it.

      You are right. The only people that would end up owning them would be Feinstein and her body guards.

  • fliteking

    Looks like a great pistol . . . with some great ammo choices. To rich for my blood though.

      You can get similar performance, I think, with the SIG 2340. It comes in .40, but you can get a new barrel/recoil spring set from SIG for their .357 SIG cartridge, which has ballistics much like the .357 S&W Mag. The standard magazine handles both rounds as the .357 SIG is really a necked down .40.

        Excellent. Just got this year’s ballistic tables, will check it out.

    Might explain the problems with dems and liberals – and the fact they keep getting caught with their pants down (pun intended!). They try to compensate for their retarded sexual development and hatred of all things involving gunpowder by having trysts at all times. Well, that and wanting to control guns to control US..

      That must be why Obarry and Rahm like boys. They are compensating for women, or lack of.
      When I was in the army I compensated my gun for a rifle.

  • foxxybey

    I want one but, can’t afford one at this time.

    is this one of those ‘if I have to ask how much, I can’t afford it’ things?

  • moparfan54

    I want one, but I not copensating for anything, I just like .357’s.

    Nice pistol I have fired several Coonan pistols I still prefer my old .380 with glasers and arcanes. That I can fit into my pants.

  • GridRider

    Ok, so my Colt 1911, Corvette and V-twin motorcycles mean I am “compensating for something”? Here I thought they were just interesting and a lot of fun… Ok… so the leftie who has a telephone for protection and a Chevy Volt says what exactly about that leftie??? deluded and boring – if you ask me.

  • Shears_of_Atropos

    Um, that’s a muzzle BRAKE, not break.

  • MsSkye

    Bus Kills 15 people in California, bus kills 15 people in the Bronx, New York tour buss kills 14 People, eight dead in southern Ca…… What are we talking about gun killing people, let ban buses. stupid people use dumb logic to make guns sound bad. I am not stupid, I put the first part up to demonstrate how dumb logic works.,

  • methodius

    We got three of them in the shop this past December and they were gone inside of three days. They do need some break in time, particularly with the compensator. But they are just cool looking and hunting legal in WI. We have six more on order.
