Coonan or Imbel?

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?

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

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.

That is what really sucks....short decision time!

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.
