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
•Sear Spring
•Disconnector & Pin
•Thumb Safety
•Plunger Tube, Pins (Front & Rear), and Spring
•Barrel Bushing
•Recoil Plug
•Grip Screws
•Grip Bushings

and there are 6 parts that require some modification:
•Firing Pin Stop
•Grip Safety
•Recoil Spring
•Ejector
•Recoil Spring Tube
•Sights


Also, Coonan Arms does offer some really nice checkered grips.
