I have 2 of them. I have a Classic (full size) and I have one of the first 5 compacts made. These guns are NOT SNAPPY at all. They are so heavy that only full blown .357 magnum ammo will cycle the slide. Virtually no recoil and very accurate. The grip is longer front to back to accommodate the magazine that houses the very long (compared to a .45 ACP round) .357 magnum round. About 85% of the gun is standard 1911 parts, the rest are specific to that gun. Quality is excellent and, last time I spoke to Dan Coonan, he told me that they are going to be making a standard size 1911 in .45 ACP with the pivoting trigger and other special "Coonan" enhancements that are on the .357 guns. Of course, I am on the list for one of the first one's off the line.
