Buds is awesome, the communication was good and shipping was fast. The Stoeger Cougar 8040 came in great condition. However, one of the two magazines it came with seemed well used and had some rust on it. Not Buds fault, I'm happy with my purchase none the less. Thanks Buds!

Stoeger has decided not to sell this pistol anymore with a hard plastic case. They changed the guide rod back to plastic (not that plastic doesn't work but i prefer all steel/alloy pistols).

Fit and Finish is okay. The Bruniton finish, which is suppose to be stronger than Bluing, came chipped in a couple of places. the magazines look straight up used and abused. The fitment of the machined parts are okay, the gun clanks and rattles and there's about a 1/32nd gap between the slide rails and slide. It's no Beretta!

As far as shooting....
Its a good shooter and so far been reliable but with the amount of play, I believe the pistol will wear out quickly. We will have to wait and see.

Bought this Gun and I Love It! It's form fitting to my hand, Shoots with very little recoil and the Grouping wasn't tight but maybe because I am not a Marx-man. The clip spring is very tight and hard to load a full magazine. I am very happy with this 40-Cal and possibly gonna buy this same model in a 9MM.

I haven't had the opportunity to get it to the range, but initial impressions are just as I thought after reading a couple of magazine reviews. Fits my hand very well. Very easy to field strip. If there's one complaint, it's that the magazine spring must have come from a '59 Pontiac! Forget loading it with your thumb and fingers. I managed to get 5 rounds in and that was it. If you order this handgun and you don't already have one, get one of the "helpers".

Bud's people are great! Emails at every movement. Couldn't have a better transaction. I've never purchase a firearm this way, but it was non eventful. My transfer point was just as nice as could be. Everything went so well, I also ordered a Ruger P95. Thanks to Bud's people for a very pleasant buying experience.
