Contact MechTech today about Coonan conversion

Recommended Posts

I have 3 pistols chanbered in .357 Magum.  I have 3 rifles chambered in .357 Magnum.

I want a .357 Magnum semi-auto.  I know, I know.  Why not get a 10mm?  Why not get a .40?  Because I reload .357, have a ton of .357 ammo and don't want to introduce another caliber.  I so eagerly want a .357 semi-auto carbine.

If anyone else is interested in one of these conversions, please contact MechTech today and show your support.  They won't build a conversion unless you ask.  They are already doing conversions for other 1911s.  I want them to build an upper for the Coonan 1911.

 

Please show your support by contacting MechTech today: https://mechtechsys.com/Contact/tabid/6648/Default.aspx

After contacting them, please share this post to other gun blogs so the interest can spread.  I don't want to have to pay a gunsmith thousands of dollars to do this conversion for me.

 

I wasn't quite sure whether to put this post in handguns or long guns forum.  Technically, it's both.

.357 Mag is my favorite handgun round.

However, making it semi auto is impractical. What is not impractical is  making the .357 Mag into a rimless without changing it ballistically. Of course then you have two different rounds. So then you might as well go with other available choices; .223, .30 Carbine, 300 Blackout,  or the King .308 Winchester for your carbine. :)

But you are certainly going about it the right way. Get a group of people to tell MechTech they will buy one; and it just may happen. Good luck.

I want to stockpile 1 357 cartridge, not 2.  Otherwise, I'd just go with a 10mm carbine.  That's close enough to the 357 in power and ballistics.

      Just read an article that Scott & Webley had done a reboot in India. Article date 2-25-20 on Guns.com site. A new line of top breaks in 32 cal, even a 1911.  Any interest in these old top breaks here? I have an Enfield 38 S & W. Have a mould to cast the 200 gr bullet for it but haven't gotten around to loading for it yet. Always liked the ugly rugged look of them. Like the short barrel tanker model also.

      Hello everyone,
      I'm looking for a red dot sight for my 12ga semi-auto shotgun which has picatinny rail on the receiver. Hoping to have better scores on duck hunting in twilight at close and medium ranges.
      I was looking for a couple of red dot sights on the internet and get confused:
      One of them is this one: CVLIFE 1X22X33 Red Green Dot Gun Sight Scope Reflex Sight with 20mm Rail, only 19 dollars.
      Second one is this: Ohuhu Red Green Dot Gun Sight Scope Reflex Sight with 4 Reticles. It has also charming price, only 19 dollars.
      By the way, I'm from Turkey/Istanbul. Some of veteran hunters recommend Burris Fastfire series and Docter brand red dot sights for 12ga shotguns, around here.
      Burris 300234 Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount 3 MOA Sight (Black). 195 dollars.
      Burris 300236 Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount 8 MOA Sight (Black). 190 dollars.
      Which one is proper for my desired purpose?
      I need your valuable comments and recommendations.
      Thanks in advance.

      I am looking for a thumb piece or cylinder latch release for a k frame. I will need to do a little filing so it can be a used one.
