Darn, you beat me to it.
On the prototype model, the original barrel and barrel link design was that of the 1911. It was later redesigned to a linkless barrel system with the introduction of the Coonan B.
The 1911 and the Coonan have few things in common.
There are 18 parts that are direct replacements:
•Hammer & Pin
•Hammer Strut & Pin
•Sear, & Pin
•Disconnector & Pin
•Plunger Tube, Pins (Front & Rear), and Spring
and there are 6 parts that require some modification:
•Firing Pin Stop
•Recoil Spring Tube
Also, Coonan Arms does offer some really nice checkered grips.
