    Stoeger Cougar is back

    Bought a Stoeger Cougar 9mm at Academy on 09/02/11. Felt and shot better than my Glock G19 GEN4. Somehow, after 60 rounds of trouble free shots. I screwed up by putting the recoil incorrectly after cleaning, and it stuck.

    Had to sent it back, did it on 09/14/11, got it back on 09/26/11. Put 150 rounds through without any problems yesterday. I am really impressed with the service that Stoeger (Benelli USA) provided.

    After carefully reading the manual again. It's embarrassed but I have to admit that this malfunction was strictly human error on my part. I am glad that it's over. And very nice knowing that the costumer services is top notch. Now I can highly recommend this brand to anyone. Thanks.

    glad you got your gun back and that it was a positive experience for you.

    now sit down and use the manual to field srtip, clean and reassemble the pistol a few times..... i guarantee you have had your WTF? moment, you will never let that happen again.

    Yes, I will not let this happen again on my Cougar. Thanks for your support.

    Yes, should have done that per your recommendation. Where were you when I needed you?

    The reason I purchased this one was the field strip. Like the push out and flip kind of setups. Not like the G19, was easy sometimes, but when you have a greasy hands, sweaty hands, or when you are tire, not enough strength, the small latch just would not listen to you. Once I had to spend about 15 minutes humiliating myself trying to field strip the G19. Not a good feeling.

    I have always wanted to get myself one of those pistols, but only would trust "word of mouth" results instead of half the crap you see in the advertisements or from a gun store. Now, that gun just went up a few notches on my to get list.

    its based on the beretta 8000 (cougar)..... stoeger is owned by benelli and they are owned by beretta. much the same as when smith & wesson and taurus were both owned by bangor punta and shared designs.

    Stoeger Cougar is back

    I never knew the Cougar left. I own a 9mm Cougar compact, only difference is the grip is shorter so it uses 13 round mags. Terrific gun everyone should own one. Nice trigger, shoots well, low recoil. It is a winner!
