Stoeger Cougar 8000 Double Action Pistol

A new affordable semi-auto loading pistol called the Cougar joins the Stoeger family. This double-action pistol is available in either .40 Smith & Wesson (S&W) or 9 mm. Parabellum. Stoeger's Cougar is the same design as the aluminum-frame, Italian-made Cougars that Beretta® originally introduced in the mid-1990s. The only difference is that the new Cougars are manufactured in Turkey and offered at very attractive prices.

The original Cougar line was developed to provide a more compact alternative to full-size pistols chambered for the 9 mm. and .40 S&W. The basic Cougar platform was designed for the .40 S&W with the 9 mm. chambering added later. The Cougar features a barrel that rotates to lock with the slide, providing greater strength and accuracy. The barrels are cold hammer-forged and the bores are hard chrome lined for exceptional strength and durability.

Other features include rounded edges for snag-free drawing, removable front sight, matte-black finish, ambidextrous safety, and combat-style trigger guard. Incorporating the finest technology and maintaining proven semi-auto features, the Cougar is a light, compact and reliable pistol. The Cougar comes with two high-capacity magazines - the .40 S&W magazine holds 11 rounds and the 9 mm. magazine takes 15 rounds.

Accuracy, reliability and manageable recoil make the Cougar a perfect choice for home defense, or for fun shooting at targets. Stoeger's new Cougar embodies the kind of affordable value that you can stake your life on.
  • Action: double/ single action

For the better part of a century, the name Stoeger® has been associated with fine firearms.  

It all began in 1923, when Austrian immigrant Alexander F. Stoeger issued a price list from his New York City shop. In it, he announced that he was the "sole authorized importer for the United States and Canada of the genuine Mauser and Luger Arms and Ammunition." German Luger pistols were among the first firearms Stoeger sold. The next year, Stoeger issued his first catalog. And by 1931, the Stoeger catalog proclaimed the company to be "the only exclusive gun house in America." 

In the 1990s, the Stoeger company was purchased by Finnish rifle manufacturer Sako. In 2000, Sako was acquired by Beretta Holding S.p.A. At that time, Stoeger Industries was placed under the ownership of Benelli USA, where it remains today as a member of the Benelli USA family of companies.  

The technology and expertise of Benelli USA are integral to Stoeger's manufacturing processes. And all Stoeger products enjoy a solid reputation for affordable quality.
