Finally after years of lookingmad for the right one at a decent confused price.

A new to me Coonan 357 "B"

The grips are butt ugly and I am ordering some Zebra's from a furniture maker.

I got a Coonan 357 from the 1990s era when he filed bankruptcy, then restarted.  I find it to be fairly accurate but the mags are hit or miss in locking back the slide.  It shoots a nice fireball but of course mild compared to a 445 supermag.  Runs like a top otherwise, esp with my hand-loads.  All due respect, I had a Marine shoot it and he claimed it wasn’t accurate but the truth was the recoil was too much for him - Flinch.  That’s the case with most becuase it is a handful as a semi-auto.  For freaks like us, the bang is all smiles!  Be careful, the inside of the slide can gaul pretty easily and there’s no service since Coonan is now defunct.  

I’ll have to get it out on the range and post some pics now that I’ve been reminded about it.  I

I'll slather it in slide glide. I shoot .44 mag one handed so hopefully I want have any limp wrist issues.

I have two factory mags and am hoping both work fine,previous owner said the only ammo he had issue with was Foicchi.

Yes best of luck with your Coonan especially since they're out of business.

I had one for a couple years. I had the barrel bushing break, slide crack, and trigger become loose. All of which was fixed by Coonan but now that they're out of business, I don't know what you'd do if those things happen now.

I sold mine about a year or so before they went out of business.

Same as here, Coonan gun owners group for parts and advise.

I have already located some one who has a stockpile that they sell some things and plenty of others that have lots of smalls. Numrich is also a good source. Gunbroker has sellers with parts also.
