I am near completion of gathering parts for a G1. I was planning on sacrificing one of my IMBEL Receivers for the task, only to just now discover that Coonan makes a custom G1 Receiver that can be personally serialized (based on number availability) and has similar G1 markings etc.

Looks like this offer ends on 12/31/17.

I have heard mixed opinions on Coonan? It would be cool 😎 to have a Receiver that sort of matches....I must admit.

Looks like I must make a decision in a few days...crap.

Any thoughts or opinions here?

Send me a link to the Coonan you want and I will buy it for you.

Send me the stray Imbel :)

Merry Christmas

I've had good luck with Coonan, but there is enough evidence posted here to be concerned.

With that said, I have three on order because the custom serial number and markings mean something to me and I'm willing to take a chance that it will work out.

If the markings and custom serial number are something you want, than you only have a few days to order before they stop taking orders on those.

Just ordered my last batch of custom Coonans. They will take orders through 12/29/2017 and then no more custom receivers.

Sounds like Sticking with the Imbel is the way to go. I guess I still have a couple days to decide though...ugh

If you could find a real DSA LMT Type 1 would be preferential. Just to muddy the water a little.
