    9mm Cougar

    I'm looking into getting a 9mm cougar, either a used beretta or a used or new stoeger.
    It doesnt really matter which to me as long as if used the condition is good.

    My question is if the new stoeger 9mm cougars have picatinny rails?
    I know that the new .45s do, and I read on one forum that the new 9mms that are just coming out have them, but the link that was posted for that was broken so I wasnt able to verify that claim.
    But if the new 9mms do have rails then that is what I'll try to get.

    I have fired a .45 beretta cougar extensively and love it. Unfortunatly it is not mine and I have finally decided that I want my own cougar.
    I would get a .45, except that I already have a .45 M&P and I do not own any 9mm or equivalent caliber pistol and feel that is a caliber gap I need to fill.

    Now I've been looking around and it seams like cougars are hard to come by, does anyone have any recommendation on where in the CA bay area they can be found?

    Picked up my 9mm Cougar...It's got Rails....No mention of such on Stoeger website and/or owners manual...Times are moving forward, and Stoeger is listening...Practice what you shoot, so you'll shoot what you practice. Live Well Live Free.

    Hello, new to site and first post,....

    I have a '96 Beretta Cougar without rails and it is the only thing I do not like about Cougar. However, I found a company in Phoenix, Az. that makes rails for such guns and they are in the process of making me a picatinny rail to attach to my gun. They use an adhesive on the back of metal strips that attach to gun, supposedly oil and cleaner resistant, then the rails are held in place with strong earth magnets. This is the first one they have made, so it's a prototype. They will total refund if it doesn't work properly. Should have it in a few days. Cost is $85...cheap by me to get to add laser or light or ??? I will have more in about a week on this. Great forum here,...learning a lot already.

    I just got off the phone with one of Stoeger's U.S. sales reps, and she confirmed my suspicion that only .45ACP Cougars are currently being sold in the U.S. with rails. You better have some photos of said railed 9mm to back up your claim . . .

    Lots of claims here, but still no photographic proof . . .

    Upload the photo to a photobucket or similar account, and then use the direct link in the post.

    I'm beginning to think the Stoeger rep was a clueless idiot . . . I just found this pic on the Beretta forum that looks an awful lot like a railed 9mm model:

    It would be cool to see the 9mm with rails. I have never seen one myself. I have never used the rails on my guns that have them either. Not a real big deal on my important to buy list. For those who want it if the Cougar has it it would be a pretty cool new choice to consider.

    I called my local Cabela's and they said they had never seen a railed 9mm model, but they also mentioned that if I figured out the Cabela's SKU for it, they could order one. Would you kindly look at the receipt for your gun and post the Cabela's SKU listed on it?

    FWIW, three minutes on the phone with BenelliUSA and I found out that only the 45 is available with the rail until next spring. Then the entire line will have been switched over.

    I made the same call, however, the information is obviously false considering people are already buying railed 9mm models . . .
