Re: Any info on Stoeger Cougars
rentalguy1, I have owned the Stoeger 8000 & currently own the 8045.
1st off it's a Beretta with Stoeger stamped on the side, they're made on Beretta machinery in Turkey.
I ran over 2500 rds through my 8000 of all different variations without a single failure of any kind. It had no noticeable wear anywhere on the gun. They are very accurate, easy to maintain & one of the softest shooting 9MM's available.
They are shipped with Beretta mags, & factory replacements are $20 everywhere.
Probably one of the very best handgun values available today. When they were made in Italy, they sold for little less than $700. Now you can get them NIB (same exact gun) for little less than $400.
