Anyone ever heard of 1911's that were made in .38 Special or .357 Magnum? I guess there is one called a Coonan that is made in .357 Magnum. Anyone know more about this? Apparently they are collector items now.
Coonan was producing them up until 1999. They were very well made and are popular with some collectors today. They were made in .357 mag and .41 mag. The mod-A .357 would also handle .38 sp+p ammo. There was also a .38sp conversion kit for the .357mag. Value on the different models can vary anywhere from $700 to $1800, depends on model, condition, options and the market at the time.
the Gold cup was made in 38 special.but you shot target loads and Full WC.
as a rnd nose was to long for mag. I have a custom 1911 in 38 spec.regular loads will blow the back of case.the army made some in 38amp.a 38 spec with rim turned of and extracter groove cut.
