    Good luck finding one. I gave up and spent a little more and got the PX4. Hope you find one.

    Got mine at Sportsmans Warehouse last month. Cabelas also had some in stock, but at about $30 more in price.

    I think for the price the Cougar is a nice pistol - I got mine for $339 at Sportsmans Warehouse. So far I've run about 250 rounds through mine - a mix of reloads, Winchester White Box, and Federal Premium. The thing eats everything I feed it without a bobble which is pretty good for an out of the box pistol.

    If for any reason ..... it would need to go in for service .... who would it go to ... Beretta??

    As far as new guns go, I think it's worth it. As for better, well, that's debatable. You can get unused Walther P1's for less, or used Sig 225's formerly used by German police for about the same price. These two however would only hold interest for the collector, but they are solid and reliable weapons with a bit of history behind them.

    One other lower-priced pistol to consider is the S&W Sigma, which can often be found for $299 and there is also a promotion that includes a $50 rebate and two extra magazines. These are solid and reliable handguns as well, but the trigger pull is a bit heavy. Just something else to consider....

    I'd contact Stoeger first. I suspect they'd probably send the pistol to Beretta for any work. On the Benelliusa forum a Stoeger Cougar owner posted a comment that when he contacted Stoeger for Cougar parts, he was told to contact Beretta. Apparently, Beretta has an inventory of Cougar parts and, of course, they will fit the Stoeger Cougar.

    I looked eveywhere for a Beretta Cougar with no luck. Then started the search for a Stoeger. Stumbled across one in a little out of the way gun shop
    and grabbed it. $370.00 out the door plus 5% tax but it is a great shooting little gun. This one is in 40SW. As far as warranty work, Stoeger provides the warranty card, company address, etc with the gun but I think it filters through to Beretta. I was looking for a set of Beretta wood logo'd grips for it and asked Beretta if the Beretta grips would fit the Stoeger. He said "It's the same gun." And it is. and they did.

    Question for anyone who owns a Stoeger Cougar

    I just purchased a Cougar in 9mm, and while I have not fired it I have cycled the hammer/trigger some. I noticed that on the right side, right above the trigger, the bar that moves with the trigger has scraped the finish off down to the metal. I spoke with Beretta, and they said the sample they have in their office is the same way, and that this was normal. Did yours do that? I have had Berettas before, and they did not do that. This is not what I had hoped for with this pistol.

    I would appreciate knowing if yours is doing that. Thanks.

    opinion

    monadh: I don't have one.
    Was visiting with my favorite 'gun money taker' today and asking "her" to see if she could get me Cougar 8000. Sadly we got side tracked and out the door with something else on order. "She" knows how to get into my pocket.

    The point to my thread contribution.

    I would like to follow along with your experiences, comparatives, and generally opinion.

    Thanks

    The latest with my Cougar

    I have had the Stoeger at the range 3 times now, with about 700 rounds through it. It has been flawless. Accurate and will fire anything. It is tight as a drum, and the trigger is excellent.

    I am going to buy a second one. This is too good a buy not to have another one.

    Alba Gu Brath

    Kimber Eclipse, HK P30, HK USP .45, Stoeger 8000, Colt Magnum Carry, S&W 686 PP, High Standard .22, Colt 1911 (mfg in 1917) all scattered around the house. I sleep well at night, even in Memfrica.
