Coonan Inc. shutdown till end of November?

Quoted directly from their website: www.coonaninc.com

Coonan Inc. wants to reach out to our loyal customers and dealers…
Coonan Inc. is NOT GONE!
Due to contractual obligations, we have been unable to discuss the big changes that are happening.

We sincerely apologize for the lack of communication. This process has taken far longer than we had anticipated, but there have been a lot of things going on behind the scenes. We have been working very hard to restructure the company in ways that will allow us to serve our customer’s needs better and faster. These changes will also allow us to pursue even more exciting new projects.

While obstacles can pop up easily during this type of transition, we do hope to have things up and running by the end of November. Once we have completed the process, we will contact our customers with delivery dates on orders for pistols, FAL receivers, and accessories.

^^Same here. I've paid for two custom FAL (inch & metric) receivers that are due to be sent to me at the end of November. I have not received a response to either email or voice messages left with them.

Those of you that paid with a credit card had better file chargebacks while that window is open. If not, it's going to be a rehash of the Moses Mags fiasco.

Know what'd be a real kicker? If the "changes" are because they entered into a deal to provide all of the new receivers DSA claims to be coming out with.

And they can still produce out of spec products, claiming nothing is wrong with them because they're the best manufacturer in the world.

Well, perhaps not - but apparently their website is.
Accessing http://www.coonaninc.com/ now returns a “Not Acceptable“ message.
I just opened their webpage, still there.

That’s odd; it wasn't working from my iPhone, but now it is.
It seems that I was premature in my pronouncement.

Could the page still be in your cache?
downforeveryoneorjustme.com shows that website as up. I can get in on my PC and smart phone. I don't know why others can't open the page.

There website is still up - not updated to reflect the fact it is now December, and I am also waiting on two of the FAL receivers. They still did not reply to my two messages, aside from auto generated replies.

FYI - these receivers, despite the 180 day wait as advertised, should have been delivered April 2018.

The site still works but you get a message that "Coonan is not gone, blah blah blah" Unless you're saying you can actually go on there and order something ? Every single item I clicked on says "out of stock"..

Probably a strategy to encourage customers not to contact authorities and minimize the window you have to take legal action.

May 30th, 2018 - Was told by Coonan Inc. representative, Kristy, at the time I placed and prepaid for my order, they were going to make a short production of FAL inch receivers. I was number one in line for the inch receiver production. Both custom receivers ordered are for completion of two of my customer's matching FAL firearm repairs. Was hoping to get the firearms back to them before Xmas. Not looking very good now!
